Despite the almost complete defeat of ISIS, Christians and other religious minorities in Iraq and Syria are still facing persecution, but this time from Iran, according to the CEO of the Knights of Columbus.

Carl Anderson wrote in The Wall Street Journal that the religious minorities still live in “peril” because of the Iraqi government's tolerance of the Iranian Regime’s influence. This means that many minority groups, who fled the country to escape ISIS just a few years ago are either staying away or fleeing again.

On March 7th, Ebrahim Raissi was officially appointed to head the judiciary of the regime by the Iranian Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei.

In fact, during the last presidential elections in 2017, popular reactions to his candidacy were so intense that Khamenei failed to implement what he calls “electoral genius” to bring his favorite to the head of the judiciary.
