Last week, Ebrahim Raisi, a notorious human rights abuser, announced his candidacy for the upcoming sham Iranian presidential elections on May 19. Raisi was a member of “Death Commission,” as it is known among Iranian political prisoners. The commission oversaw the massacre of 30,000 political prisoners in the summer of 1988, mostly members and supporters of the opposition People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI or MEK).


MP Ahmad Tavakoli and Abbas Abdi, a known member of the so-called “reformist” camp in Iran, issued a statement admitting how institutionalized financial and economic corruption in Iran have resulted in senior officials becoming “concession greedy” and how “this corruption will eventually find more depth, and today we are faced with systematic and networked corruption.”

In this phase the very oversight bodies involved in the fight against corruption will become influenced and corrupt individuals and begin supporting each other in a networked manner, they added. This in itself will become part of the reason of this situation continuing, according to the Alef website.

NCRI - Following clashes between the opponents in the upcoming presidential election, A. Davari affiliated with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called the remarks of the Attorney General, insulting and offensive.

The presidential candidate and the former Vice President for executive affairs, Hamid Baghaei also stated that the Attorney General is making such remarks, because he was not assigned to the Minister of Judiciary in Ahmadinejad's government.

The presidential election in Iran, scheduled for May 19th, witnessed a major development last Thursday when Ebrahim Raisi, of the “principalists” faction and considered a close confidant of Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, announced his candidacy. A few weeks ago, 50 members of the all-clerics Assembly of Experts, the body in charge of appointing the next supreme leader, issued a letter to Khamenei calling for Raisi to become the regime’s next president. Raisi himself had informed the regime’s various factions he will participate only if he enjoys Khamenei’s blessing.

The candidacy of a cleric well known for his role in the atrocious crimes by the regime ruling Iran over the past three decades was announced.  Ebrahim Raisi, currently head of the massive Astan Quds Razavi entity in control of a sacred Shiite Muslim shrine, will be running for president in the May 19 polls.

While there are claims that this new development will unify the faction opposing the incumbent, President Hassan Rouhani, it is important to shed some light on Raisi’s past to understand how, very similarly to Rouhani himself, this new candidate has played a major role in the mullahs’ crimes.


INU - In Iran’s presidential elections, scheduled to be held on May 19th, one of the many candidates is Ebrahim Raisi, currently heading the economic giant Astan Quds Razavi that enjoys significant influence over large swathes of Iran’s economy.

Raisi was born in 1960 in the city of Mashhad in northeast Iran where he continued his early education until 1975 when he transferred to the city of Qom to begin his religious studies.

Following the 1979 revolution in Iran he was appointed into government posts while continuing his higher education.

INU - The incumbent candidate in Iran’s 2017 presidential election is Hassan Rouhani. Born in 1948 near the Semnan, east of Tehran, he began his religious studies in 1960 and moved to Qom, the hub of all Iranian regime conservative mullahs. He entered Tehran University in 1969 and continued his studies at Glasgow Caledonian University in Scotland.

While claiming to be a moderate, Rouhani enjoyed very close relations with Iranian regime founder Ruhollah Khomeini in Paris even prior to Iran’s 1979 revolution. 


TEHRAN, Iran (AP) -- Two days before what has been described as Tehran's first international marathon, a top Iranian sports official cannot confirm whether Americans will participate and says women will be forced to run separately from men.

The website for Friday's "TehRUN" race lists 28 Americans among the registered runners, along with participants from more than 40 countries, including Britain and Canada. It describes the run as an opportunity for "building bridges, breaking barriers."
