Protesters on Wednesday said everyone in Iran knew “someone” who had been a victim of the regime.

“Raisi is not the president of the Iranian people, he is a mass murderer,” said Raha, an Iranian woman born in the Netherlands who lives in the United States. “He is responsible for the massacre of his 30,000 political prisoners … and when he cracked down on national protests in Iran in 2019, he realized again how terrifying and monstrous he could be. I have proved it.”

“I was on the street and I wasn’t wearing my hijab properly, so one of the women in the van came, took my hand and pulled me towards the van. We fixed it… but this is a very common occurrence in Iran,” said Haishi. “My friend and I were always afraid of being arrested.”

“Of course, achieving justice and equity is very challenging and difficult, and perhaps that is why so many of those who claim to be on the side of peace are running away from their peace responsibilities,” Raishi said. “So we say to them: If you don’t want to carry the burden on your shoulders, don’t you want to carry the burden of fighting oppression?”

Foreign Desk Editor-in-Chief Lisa Duftali said it was “not surprising” that Raishi would seek to accuse the United States and its allies of alleged “supporting terrorism.”

Dakhtali told Fox News Digital that “someone nicknamed ‘The Killer of Tehran’ goes to New York to make such accusations while the US and European delegations sit and listen. It truly shows how emboldened Iran’s rogue regime has become.” “This is a man with the innocent blood of his people in his hands, but standing on the podium and spouting lies about how he believes in human rights for all.”

Daftali said Raisi was not defending his own people, only Palestinians, whom he said were victims of Israel’s “tyranny”.

“Outside the doors of the United Nations, something very different was happening,” said Dakhtali. “Protesters from all over the country came to New York to protest Raisi’s visit, telling reporters and passers-by that the Iranian regime’s brutal crimes, such as a 22-year-old girl, shouldn’t be killed for showing her hair. should be forgotten instead of fabricated diplomatic negotiations within the United Nations.”

Senior Researcher Venam Ben Tallebrew The Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD) told Fox News Digital that the administration missed an opportunity by allowing Raisi to visit the United States.

“By not denying Raisi a visa, especially after the brutal murder of Mercer Amini, the Biden administration missed an opportunity to speak out on Iran and human rights,” Tareblu said.
