Watch: Iranians Break Into Celebration as Notoriously Brutal President Is Confirmed Dead

As official mourning for Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi was declared by Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, other Iranians at home and abroad celebrated his death.

Early Monday, rescue teams found the charred wreckage of the helicopter that went down Sunday carrying Raisi, Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian and six other passengers and crew, according to Reuters.

All aboard the chopper were killed when it went down in a remote region while returning from neighboring Azerbaijan.

The 63-year-old Raisi had been president since 2021 and clamped down fiercely against dissent and protests in 2022.

As NBC News noted, he acquired the nickname “Butcher of Tehran” after the execution of several thousand political prisoners following the end of the Iran-Iraq war in 1988.

That and other repressive actions led to multiple people in Iran and elsewhere posting videos to social media to celebrate Raisi’s death.

Watch:

Among those celebrating were Mersedeh Shahinkar and Sima Moradbeigi, who showed themselves dancing and smiling.

Shahinkar was blinded during the 2022 protests; Moradbeigi lost the use of one arm after a guard shot her.

Maryam Rajavi, president-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, said Raisi’s death represented a “monumental strategic blow to the mullahs’ Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and the entire regime,” voicing the hope that it could lead to a rebellion, according to the U.K.’s Daily Mail.

“The curse of mothers and those seeking justice for the executed, along with the damnation of the Iranian people and history, mark the legacy of Ebrahim Raisi, the notorious perpetrator of the 1988 massacre of political prisoners,” she said.

Although Raisi is gone, the regime that installed him as president remains, Sima Shine, a former senior official in the Mossad, Israel’s foreign intelligence agency, told The New York Times.

“From Israel’s point of view, I don’t see any achievement in his being replaced by some other radical conservative Iranian,” Shine said. “The president is not the most important person in Iran.”

    If Trump gets in power in Nov. he should signal to the Iranian people that he will back them if they rebel and overthrow the Iranian Mulllahs. They have been dictators and terrorists to the Iranian peoplle ever since Jimmy Carter schemed to get rid of the Shah. Since then Iran has been the chief sponsor of terror in the Middle East.

    I was so excited about the helicopter I couldn’t sleep all night. At first I thought Israel did it but then realized IT WAS GOD. I’ve prayed for the Persian people since 1979 everyday since meeting a Persian friend in college. She was so nice and generous that she was taking me to Tehran for vacation when we were 18. Then the revolution started and the terrorists broke into her family home, stole everything and held her father hostage. We were in Miami and her mother flew there and rented a house. I remember her at the kitchen table saying she was going to offer herself as a substitute for her husband. He was a close friend of the shah. I changed schools soon after and never forgot her. I’ve prayed everyday since. The Persian people are victims, hostages of a Marxist terrorist government. When they bravely stood up against the regime Obama did nothing to help them.

    A country’s citizens do not start war. Their political heads of state do. KILL every IMAM in Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Egypt, and Syria, and you will find peace in the world. ISLAM IS NOT A RELIGION. Please, do yourself a favor and get educated on the subject of Islam. I submit:

    Islam has been the scourge of civilization since its inception. Their ‘Bible’ contains 103 verses which not only authorizes, but MANDATES every Muslim to kill every infidel, (read: non-Muslim), if they do not (ultimately) conform to Islam. What religion in the world preaches death? NONE! Therefore, ISLAM IS NOT A RELIGION. It is a military complex, cloaked in the disguise of a ‘religion’, and masquerading under a religious banner, to deceive and take financial and psychological advantage of the Western World.

    Muslims have only ONE objective – TO ESTABLISH SHARIA LAW THROUGHOUT THE WORLD, and they will do/say whatever it takes to reach said objective. In their ‘Bible’, (the Qur’an), there are numerous verses which not only condones but ‘authorizes’ atrocities which are banned and recognized as ILLEGAL in EVERY culture of every society, (minus those countries of which Islam is the primary ‘religion’). These include, (but are not inclusive to): Murder, rape, incest, pedophilia, under-aged marriage, extortion, kidnapping, fraud, deceit, lying, robbery, burglary, assault, and also which includes everything/anything which will justify the defense of a man’s ‘honor’, (read: honor killings – murder).

    In addition, they do NOT recognize ANY country’s ‘rule of law’ – only their own, (Sharia Law). So, what options are available to exercise? Unless they conform to the rule of law of that country – NONE.

    They also do not obligate themselves to recognize ANY signed agreement, contract, pact, etc. between themselves and any/all infidels. Therefore, ANY geo-political ‘agreement’, (or ANY ‘agreement’ for that matter), between a Muslim and a non-Muslim, (read: infidel), is NON-BINDING in their eyes. So, no matter how many peace ‘agreements’ are signed, no matter what ‘contract/pact/MOU’s the United States makes w/ ANYONE of the Islamic ‘faith’, NONE of it (in their eyes) is binding. (Example: This is why EVERY Muslim, when being sworn into an elected office refuses to put their hand on the Bible, and ‘swears’ on the Quran).

    What’s the bottom line? We need to take care of business:

    1). EVERY country in the world needs to STOP recognizing Islam as a ‘faith’, and for what it is – AN INDUSTRIAL MILITARY COMPLEX KILLING MACHINE.

    2). Hold EVERY SINGLE MUSLIM accountable for their actions which are contrary to the rule of law in that country, and executing violators, w/ the same ‘rule of law’ as that country’s citizens.
    UNTIL THIS IS DONE, THE WORLD WILL NEVER HAVE TRUE PEACE. (Read: You can’t ‘co-exist’ w/ people whose ‘Bible’ authorizes them to kill you if you don’t comply!).

    Ultimatum for non-action of #2: ALL Muslims will need to be eradicated from the face of the earth. Until this action is complete, there will be NO peace. You CANNOT ‘co-exist’ with a military entity masquerading as a ‘religion’, who’s ‘Bible’, (the Quran), AUTHORIZES the death of ANY infidel, (read: non-Muslim), if they do not conform to their ‘religion’.

    The consequences (of non-action): If we do not do this, (ultimately), it will come down to this – WE WILL HAVE TO KILL THEM BEFORE THEY KILL US. Think not? THINK AGAIN!

    EVERYTHING STATED HERE IS FACT.

    If you chose not to believe anything stated here, you’re either in hopeless denial, to helplessly apathetic to care, or too ignorant to understand…
