Iran arrests at least 100 Christians, including ex-Muslims

"It has become clear that Protestant Christians are now viewed as enemy number one of the state."

Islamic Tolerance Alert from the Islamic Republic of Iran: "BREAKING NEWS: Iran Launching Massive Arrests Of Evangelicals," by Stefan J. Bos for BosNewsLife, October 13

TEHRAN, IRAN (BosNewsLife)-- Massive arrests of evangelical Protestant Christians, including many former Muslims, are reported in Iran, with men and women being dragged to prisons across the Islamic nation.
"We have learned that at least 100, but perhaps as many as 400 people, have been detained over the last 10 days," said Firouz Khandjani, a council member of the 'Church of Iran' house church movement.

Speaking from an undisclosed location, he told BosNewsLife late Saturday, October 13, that forces of the feared intelligence service, who he called "Iran's Gestapo", broke up worship services in Esfehan, Shiraz and Tehran areas.

"They are of several movements. But it has become clear that Protestant Christians are now viewed as enemy number one of the state," Khandjani said. "We need urgent prayers," he added when asked what believers need most.

CHURCH MEMBERS DETAINED

He said among those detained late Friday, October 12, are at least five members of the Church of Iran in the city of Shiraz, including Mohammad Roghangir, known locally as 'Brother Vahid', who led a house church service attended by some 15 people.

Oh, I thought the Iranian government was friends with Christians and Jews, this story is probably a mistake. :rolleyes:
