While the world has been mourning the loss of Queen Elizabeth II, who died last week (September 8) aged 96, some anti-Western regimes have been tastelessly celebrating.
One of those is Iran.
And, according to several reports, a leading Iranian state-run TV channel has compared Her Majesty to the murderous leader of the Nazi regime, Adolf Hitler.

And the Iranian channel – a mouth piece of leaders in the country – shockingly claimed that she was “one of the greatest criminals in the history of mankind” and that her legacy of the United Kingdom was “full of crime, abomination and filth”.
The comments came from Foad Izadi of Tehran University.
Speaking on Channel 1 – the main news television channel of the country which throws members of the LGBTQ+ community off of buildings – he said: “Perhaps, in light of her 70 years on the throne, she should be included in the same list with Hitler.
"From a certain perspective, we should be sad that this person died because she died without standing trial, without being punished, and without paying for her crimes.”

And to make it worse, during an English-language broadcast on PressTV – the channel which former Labour MP Chris Williamson currently presents an anti-semitic conspiracy theory-laden show about Jews on – he added: “The Queen is a famous imperialist, colonialist, war criminal, aggression of the British army throughout the world is done under her name.
“British armed forces are the Queen's armed forces.
“So we have just a handful of people who have engaged in so many atrocities in the last century: Hitler, for example, some American presidents belong to that list, and Queen Elizabeth that oversaw the end of the British empire.

“The number of people that have been killed are in the millions and the Queen is responsible for that. Justice was not delivered to one of the most vicious individuals of that last century.”
The Daily Star has contacted Clarence House and Buckingham Palace for comment on the matter.
