Some in the West view Hassan Rouhani, the president of the Iranian regime, as a moderate figure. But Rouhani’s actions and history indicate to the exact opposite and prove that he is a terrorist and part and parcel to the mullahs’ brutal and fascist rule.

Rouhani praised the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) for firing at a U.S. drone, and said, “we hit the drone with a system that is constructed in Iran, its missile is made by Iran, its radar is made by Iran, that is, we searched with our Iranian radar, we locked with Iranian radar, we targeted it with our Iranian missile … We kiss the hands of all those who created this domestic industry in the Ministry of Defense, the hands of all who used this tool well in the Revolutionary Guards.”

Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, said the above statement doubles the need to sanction Rouhani and place him on terrorist lists. During the last four decades and especially in the last six years, Rouhani has played a key role in all of the regime’s crimes inside and outside Iran as the President and the chairperson of the clerical regime’s Supreme Security Council.

Since July1980, Rouhani has been calling for the execution of political dissidents in the Friday prayers in public, “Just as we punish adulteries in public so that everyone would witness their suffering, we should hang political dissidents at the Friday prayers to have more impact on society.”

Additionally, over 3000 people, including 91 women, were executed under Rouhani.

In the nuclear field, Rouhani wrote in his book “National Security and Nuclear Diplomacy”, that everything was going well in Natanz, and experts had planned to launch 54,000 centrifuges by March 2003, when the MEK press conference in the summer of 2002 created a fuss.

Rouhani’s statement and his history doubles the need to sanction Rouhani and place him on terrorist lists.
