The election of a hard-line Islamic extremist shows exactly where Iran is heading, for those who might not have realized
Ibrahim Raisi is, as was expected already, the winner of the presidential election in Iran.
Raisi was handpicked by Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and is nicknamed ‘The Butcher of Tehran.’
The new Iranian president is responsible for the deaths of thousands of Iranians and was appointed Iran’s judiciary chief in 2019 by Khamenei.
Raisi was a member of the so-called ‘death commission,’ a body that oversaw the disappearing and secret executions of thousands of political prisoners in Iran.
