Hossein Taeb

Heads Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps Intelligence Organization

Iran Focus: An Iranian cleric who is little known in the West is heading an intelligence operation that was formed only last year to counter political unrest, and which has rapidly become the Tehran regime’s main security force. Hojjatoleslam Hossein Taeb heads the Intelligence Organisation of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) which was created in mid-2009 on the orders of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei to centralise the security forces clamping down on unrest that followed the disputed presidential election. Iran Focus has learnt that the organisation has also been tasked with accelerating Iran's nuclear projects, which are run by the IRGC. Taeb reports directly to Khamenei >>>

what makes these people so cruel?

by Sheila K on

Why do we possess such evilness in our society? Many low grade Mullahs came from poverty and many of whom now hold high places in the regime. I wonder what kind of childhood they had if any? were they raped as little boys? [don't be so shocked by that question as "bache baazi" is still very common in Iran] were they beaten often? did they ever feel loved? I wished there were some psychological research into the lives of these men in power in Iran so that it may help with Iran's future transformation.

Dear Mark Pirooz,

You bark: But hey, everyone's entitled to their opinion- particularly over the internet.

I stated documented fact. You've spilled the typical vitriol, nothing more. 

Actually, the Rapist Regime believes that no one is entitled to an opinion or to criticize the current Head Rapist Khamenei, previous Head Rapist Khomeini, and any of a number of other rapist clerics or the executioners and goons of clerics, i.e. Pasdaran or Basij.

And your description of the rapist cleric Taeb as "reliable" as "fact"--is this like the "fact" that Khomeini's face appeared in the moon? What Islamists call "facts", non-Rapists call "lies". Keep peddling your Rapist lies--see if anyone believes them. Okay, Mark?  


What else needs to be said

by dhhcfo on

These people are nothing but bunch of thugs that try to disguise their true identity by having a turban on their head.  From Khomeini to Khamenei all nothing but gang of terrorist bastards.

Reza Shah was the only one who recognized their true identity when he suggested that they should be run thru the streets by their turban around their neck like a dirty dog.  May God bless his soul in eternity.

Some day we will have another Reza Shah and what a scenery that would be in every street in Iran



Which is worse?

by iroooni on

IRI or Nazi Germany?

Sargord Pirouz


by Sargord Pirouz on

True, to a certain extent. But he was a unreliable ally of Germany (invading Greece in 1941) and engaging in a debacle of a war against the British.

But Mussolini was a head of state. Taeb is basically an administrator.

reliable! Whenever he entered Boshkeh Eshgh in Hozeyeh Elmiyeh Qom, he would made sure he would stay in until the last act! You yourself should very well resonate with that!?

More gibberish from Mark Pirooz (aka Phoney "Sargord" Pirouz)

by Irani Irani on

Dear Mark (we can call you "Sargord" if it gives your life a little meaning),

I know you only know about 5 words of Persian, but Rapist cleric Hossein Taeb is known for his sadism, cruelty, murdering, raping, medieval punishments, and inhuman ways "above" his "reliability". West-residing IRI Groupies fool no one with their attempts to whitewash the Number One killer of Iranian men, women, and children, i.e. the IRI.

Former head of the Basij. Known for his reliability, above all else.

more nihilism

by humanbeing on

here, this time reflected in the eyes of this man and the deeds he orchestrates, behind the fig-leaf of his WSD (weapon of self-destruction), religion, so called. he has abused islam and the culture of iran in order to reach these 'achievements'.

you deserve better! reconciliate and unite for a better future.

What was said about his kind over 150 years ago!

by Tahirih on

Leaders of religion, in every age, have hindered their people from attaining the shores of eternal salvation, inasmuch as they held the reins of authority in their mighty grasp. Some for the lust of leadership, others through want of knowledge and understanding, have been the cause of the deprivation of the people. ~~Bahaulla~~

Men of Violence — Perpetrators of the Post Election Crackdown

by IranFirst on

Taeb is on the top of the list for his crimes during green uprising


"..The fifteen individuals named in the recently released report include:

1. Hossein Taeb, Commander of the Basij Forces during the time of June
elections. Forces under his command participated in mass beatings,
murder, detention and torture of peaceful protestors.

2. Gholam Hossein Mohseni Ejei, Minister of Intelligence at the time of
election and the country’s current General Prosecutor. Intelligence
agents under his command were responsible of detention, torture, and
extraction of false confessions under duress from hundreds of
activists, journalists, dissidents, and reformist politicians.

3. Ismail Ahmadi Moghadam, Head of the Iranian Police. Forces under
Moghadam’s command led brutal attacks on peaceful protests, attacks
on and destruction of private property, and a violent night time attack
on the dormitories of Tehran University.

4. Saeed Mortazavi, Tehran’s prosecutor General at the time of June
election. He issued a blanket order used for detention of hundreds of
activists, journalists, and students. In some instances, the blanket
arrest warrant bearing his signature was dated two days before the 12
June elections. He is also responsible for sending detained street
protestors to the Kahrizak Detention Center where they were tortured
and ill-treated, resulting in four deaths.

5. Sadeq Mahsouli, Minister of the Interior of the Islamic Republic of
Iran at the time election. As Interior Minister, Mahsouli had authority
over all police forces, interior ministry security agents, and
plainclothes agents. His forces were responsible for attacks on the
dormitories of Tehran University on 15 June 2009.

6. Abolghassem Salavati, presiding judge of Branch 15 of the Islamic
Revolutionary Courts. During the post election show trials, Salavati is
one of the only three judges in charge of post-election cases. He has
sentenced more than a hundred political prisoners, human rights
activists, and peaceful demonstrators to lengthy prison sentences as
well as at least nine execution sentences, earning the moniker, “The
Judge of Death.�

7. Seyed Hassan Firouzabadi, Chief of Staff of the Joint Armed Forces
of the Islamic Republic of Iran, the highest military organization
responsible for directing all military divisions and policies,
including the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) and police.
Forces under his command carried out brutal repression of peaceful
protestors as well as mass detentions.

8. Mohammad Ali Jafari, Commander of the IRGC. Forces under his command
were directly responsible for a significant part of post-elections
violence and arrests of reformist political figures, activists, and

9. Mohammad Moghisseh, Head of Branch 28 of the Islamic Revolutionary
Courts. He has been in charge of the cases of many activists and
protesters arrested after the June 2009 election. He has not only
issued long prison sentences based on unfounded charges, he has also
issued at least three death sentences for the protesters.

10. Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati, Secretary General of the Guardian Council.
Since the 12 June presidential election, Jannati has unabashedly
incited violence, demanded death sentences for election protestors, and
coordinated his rhetoric with the IRGC and security forces. He has
repeatedly called protestors “corruptors on earth,� a charge that
carries the death penalty. Jannati has continuously demanded execution
sentences from the Iranian Judiciary, and supported the implementation
of such sentences.

11. Ayatollah Mohammad Taghi Mesbah Yazdi, is the head of the Khomeini
Education and Research Institute in Qom and a member of the Assembly of
Experts. Over the past decade, he has become known as “the
theoretician of violence,� for his unabashed promotion and defense of
state-sponsored violence against dissidents. Through his inflammatory
statements, he has been a leading figure in instigating violence
against peaceful protestors objecting to election results and human
rights violations.

12. Yadollah Javani, Head of the IRGC Political Office. He has
repeatedly supported the use of violence and harsh interrogation
tactics against post-election protesters. Javani’s statements have
become the basis for indictments against protestors and have resulted
in the IRGC’s takeover of interrogations.

13. Rouhollah Hosseinian, Member of Parliament. He has continuously
incited violence and demanded death sentences against protestors. He
led a group of 36 parliamentarians in introducing an urgent bill in
Parliament that would reduce the appeals period for persons charged
with moharebeh (enmity against God) and sentenced to execution to only
five days. The bill was justified as a means to expedite the
implementation of death sentences issued for post-election protestors.

14. Ali Saeedi, Representative of the Supreme Leader in the IRGC.
Saeedi vehemently defended the role of IRGC forces in post-election
crackdowns and their use of violence on citizens, becoming one of the
highest ranking Islamic Republic authorities to sanction the actions of
security apparatuses.

15. Hossein Shariatmadari, Managing editor of Kayhan Newspaper, is one
of the individuals who first accused reformist presidential candidates
of a velvet revolution during the vote count after the June
presidential elections and promoted violence against protestors.
Shariatmadari’s definition of a “velvet revolution� soon became
the dominant literature used by the IRGC, Ministry of Intelligence,
Basij, and police forces for cracking down on the post-elections
