As the one-year anniversary of the tragedy of Ukraine International Airlines Flight 752 arrived, still, there is no justice. However, even before the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps fired the rocket that downed the aircraft—killing 176 people, more than 80 of them Canadian residents—there was already much to mourn. The slaughter of innocents in Iran, by the IRGC, has a long history, dating back to the organization’s inception in 1979.
At the outset of the revolution, the IRGC executed two prominent civilians: Dr. Farrokhru Parsa, Iran’s first female cabinet minister; and Habib Elghanian, a leader in the Iranian Jewish community.

The effects of 1979 continue to be felt today, all around the globe, 41 years later.
Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, the list of crimes committed by the IRGC grew longer by one atrocity after the next. They used Iranian children as minesweepers, sending them to pointless deaths in a pointless war with neighboring Iraq, a war started by the IRGC in a nonsensical attempt to spread its ideological “revolution” to the rest of the world. Over the next ten years, the IRGC went on an international killing spree, both at home in Iran and abroad in Europe and the United States, assassinating an estimated 80 opposition leaders. The IRGC attacked U.S. Marines in Lebanon, killing 241 servicemen.
