On September 9, 2022, Channel 1 (Iran) aired a special following the death of Queen Elizabeth II. Show host Pejman Karimi said that the Queen's death was "good news" for the oppressed people of the world, and Iranian academic Foad Izadi of Tehran University's Global Studies Department compared the Queen to Adolf Hitler, saying that she was "one of the greatest criminals in the history of mankind". For more about Foad Izadi, see MEMRI TV clips nos. 8789, 8598, 8180, 7919, and 7837.

Pejman Karimi: "The Queen of England is dead, and this is considered good news for the world's oppressed people. After 70 years on the throne, this queen has left a grade sheet full of crime, abomination, and filth."


Foad Izadi: "The Queen of England is one of the greatest criminals in the history of Mankind."

Karimi: "Right."

Izadi: "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."
