Will there be any Muslim Response?

It is reported not only that Christian converts are increasing in Iran, but that Muslims in leadership are stepping up persecution against Christians in Iran.

Suppose we'll hear much criticism from Muslims around the world who themselves enjoy the freedom of religion, freedom of conscience, and the right to choose and express their beliefs?

If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. (Jesus Christ, John 15:20)


  1. A little recognized fact among Christian circles is that the regime that allowed the most freedom for Christians in the Middle East area was in fact, Saddam Hussein's Iraq.

  2. Interesting nkonyaman,

    Of course, true or not, that isn't saying much...

  3. Most recognize this was not because he cared for Christians or was interested in promoting freedom of religion per se, but rather as a dictator believed separation and crushing any who caused trouble was to his interest and advantage.
