Mussolini reincarnated?

Benito Amilcare Andrea Mussolini led the National Fascist Party and is credited with being one of the key figures in the creation of Fascism. He became the 40th Prime Minister of Italy in 1922 and began using the title Il Duce by 1925. After 1936, his official title was "His Excellency Benito Mussolini, Head of Government, Duce of Fascism, and Founder of the Empire". Mussolini also created and held the supreme military rank of First Marshal of the Empire along with King Victor Emmanuel III of Italy, which gave him and the King joint supreme control over the military of Italy.

Death came to Benito Mussolini from the rifles of an Italian firing squad. As his body lay, reviled and spat upon, in a public square of Milan, it was as though the pent-up jury of a nation was beating upon the senseless clay of the man who had led it to vainglory, shame and disaster.
Malaysia now has it's own Mussolini....and this is HE.
While Mussolini was known as Il Duce
this Ibrahim Ali shall from now on be known as
(and I apologise for the profanity)
but pray tell me how else can he be better described?
