The Islamic Regime of Iran Refuses to Let the Christians Go
Iran has reached a new low in its terrorist activities. In their hast to release 85,000 prisoners from prison to avoid the spread of the virus, they must have forgotten about the Christians living in the borders. They must have forgotten to free the Iranian Christians that have been thrown in prison for practicing their faith. The Islamic terrorist regime is only showing their true colors by taken their hatred of Christianity and the West out on their people because of their beliefs.
There are many Christians that are serving 10-year prison sentences because they are not Muslim by faith. They have had their requests of release denied, even temporarily. One Christian organization stated that “We at Article18 ask for the immediate and unconditional release of all Christians detained on spurious charges related to their faith or religious activities. This is even more urgent given the current health crisis that threatens these detained Christians and their families back home.”
The facts do not change that Muslims hate Christians and will put them in prison because they have different beliefs. Iran hates the West that identifies as Christian. But they also hate then all because of the sanctions and other penalties that they are under for their terrorist ways. So, it stands to reason that they will not let the Christians go based on their hatred for them.
The words of Article 18 fall on deaf ears in Iran. But they hope that their plea to the world will be heard. They stated that “The international community should also demand that Iran upholds its obligations to guarantee the right to freedom of religion or belief for every citizen, regardless of their ethnic or linguistic background, including converts from other religions.”
Iran is also at the center of the virus outbreak. It may have started in China but because the Iranian leaders failed to act responsibly, their people are dying as a result. The numbers that Iran is reporting are high, but medical professionals believe the numbers are worse than what is being reported. Just goes to show that no one believes them any longer.
Mike Pompeo has even gone on the record telling the truth of Iran’s lies. The number of deaths and infections continues to be a concern because they refuse to do anything about the problem. Iran hates everyone and every nation that opposes their desires. From a religious standpoint, they see Christians as standing in their way of world domination. From the political side, all other nations are the enemies that refuse to let them develop nuclear weapons.
And yet in the middle of all the accusations Alireza Miryousefi, who is the United Nations spokesperson for Iran, states in their defense, “All Iranians imprisoned for various crimes are judged by the judiciary on an individual basis as to whether they should be released or furloughed on medical grounds or other consideration. Tens of thousands have already been released from prisons. There has been no discrimination on the basis of religion or race.” But once again actions tell the truth.
Iran considers it a crime to convert from Islam to another faith. They convict people and throw them into prison based on their decision of how to worship. They also make examples out of Christians much like the Romans did thousands of years ago. Prison time and eventually death is the result of being a Christian in Iran.
In some cases, they are denied any kinds of rights granted to regular citizens. Iran is not tolerant of other religions. Their greed for money and power has defined their leadership as horrible and evil. The U.S. State Department has said that “For years, the Iranian regime has prioritized its proxies over the Iranian people and stolen the money the Iranian people deserve and expect to go for their healthcare. In July 2019, one billion euros intended for medical supplies ‘disappeared’ and another $170 million allocated for medical goods were instead spent on tobacco.” Point proved that Iran is corrupt and cannot be trusted.
