As Rouhani starts his second term as the President of Iran the suppression and executions are increasing. The notion that Rouhani is a moderate is proven to be false. So far in 2017, 101 people have been executed. Under Rouhanis tenure 80 women have been executed. If we compare that with the former President, Ahmadinejad almost 900 people were executed under his tenure, during Rouhanis tenure so far, more than 3000 people have been executed.
|Rouhani second term as president started by 103 Execution|
The regime has become more and more isolated since prominent politicians in EU are asking for justice for the victims of the 1988 massacre of political prisoners in Iran. And the list of collaborators with the dictators in Tehran is getting shorter by the minute, it is therefore very important for the regime to appear as moderates who value human rights and that the regimes most important work are the well-being of the people of Iran.
The fact that the head of EU foreign policy, Federica Mogherini is in Tehran to legitimize Rouhanis presidency show the length some politicians are willing to go for profit. It seems like the money rule.
After the sham election, everybody thought that the executions in Iran would decrease but they have in fact increased. And the youth of Iran is openly showing their discontent with the clerical regime. The result of this is more abuse, arbitrary arrests, torture, and executions, but what more can you expect from the man that suggested public executions in the first place, Rouhani. Yes, that came from Rouhani, he also was in a key position during the horrific massacre of political prisoners in 1988.

It is also under Rouhani that the suppression of women has increased, the mandatory hijab law has been intensified and new laws against women has been ratified under Rouhani. So I have a question to Federica Mogherini, «how can you literally go down on your knees for a regime that is responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of political prisoners?»
«How do you justify your visit, wearing a hijab in a country where women have no rights at all?» it has become quite clear that Mogherini just follows the money and she shows no regards for the loss of innocent human lives. The disregard of human lives is something she has in common with the dictatorial, clerical mullahs in Tehran.
