UN Slammed for Honoring 'Mass Murderer' Iranian President Raisi

iexclusivenews – The United Nations has faced intense criticism for lowering its flag to half-staff and offering condolences to the Iranian regime following the death of President Ebrahim Raisi, nicknamed the “Butcher of Tehran” for his role in mass executions of political prisoners in 1988.

Raisi, along with other Iranian officials, died in a helicopter crash in a mountainous region of Iran.

UN Member Nations Offer Condolences

Several UN member nations, including the United States, have offered condolences to the Iranian regime, sparking outrage among human rights activists and Iran hawks.

Anne Bayefsky, director of the Touro Institute on Human Rights and the Holocaust, and president of Human Rights Voices, slammed the UN for its “shocking disservice” to the victims of Raisi’s reign of terror and oppression.

International Backlash

Lithuanian Foreign Minister Gabrielius Landsbergis and United Kingdom Security Minister Tom Tugendhat have publicly refused to send condolences, citing Iran’s human rights abuses and role in supporting terrorism.

Israeli UN Ambassador Gilad Erdan called the moment of silence a “disgrace” and slammed the UN for continuing to honor the “mass murdering” president of Iran.

US Participation in Moment of Silence

State Department spokesperson Matt Miller addressed the US participation in the moment of silence, clarifying that while the US regrets any loss of life, it does not change the reality of Raisi’s record of human rights abuses.

Raisi’s Record of Human Rights Abuses

Ebrahim Raisi’s record of human rights abuses is well-documented. As a judge, he oversaw the mass executions of political prisoners in 1988, earning him the nickname “Butcher of Tehran.”

During his presidency, Iran has continued to suppress dissent and opposition, with widespread reports of human rights abuses, including the torture and execution of political prisoners.

Iran’s Role in Supporting Terrorism

Iran has also been accused of supporting terrorism, with its proxy groups responsible for attacks on civilians and military personnel around the world.

The US has designated Iran as a state sponsor of terrorism, and the country has been subject to international sanctions for its support of terrorist organizations.
