Driven by fear of non Islamic society, the hardliners of Iran have been attempting to codify a bill that will follow strict Islamic law and Institute the death penalty for apostates, or those who leave islam, since 2008. Will they finally succeed? Will the new power given them by the world be enough to embolden this move? One report says they have sent The new draft penal judiciary to the Parliament for approval.
Christian converts are in great danger in Iran as are the other religious minorities. The world downplays the danger Christians & others face. You see in Islam you are Muslim if you are born to a Muslim parent. If you convert to Christianity you are an apostate.
According to a radiofarda.com recent report the new bill has been sent for approval.
Citing religious texts and unity of the Muslim religion they determine death for apostates. However they will offer 3 days to repent and go free. Special consideration is given also for women.
So for women imprisonment and death for men. How in the world can western leaders remain silent and maintain their integrity?
If this is allowed to solidify Iran will be free to murder thousands of christians, with the world’s permission. The UN and the West has a moral obligation to stop this slaughter. ISIS is doing the very same thing committing genocide in the name of Islam. There is no difference.
Saeed Abidini said in a recent facebook post in which he shared the new report:
“Human rights abuses and Christian situation after 5+1 agreement and negotiation got worse and worse and Iranian government and courts are violating Human Rights more than in past years, today and the reason is because there is not any pressure on them after sanctions has been removed and they do whatever they want to do with their own citizens to shutdown any movement that they see is different than their beliefs and thoughts such as religious and political movements to make a strong Shia Islamic country .”
He is right. Iran’s goal is to rule the Middle East and the world. They want to obliterate Israel and the US. They have threatened the US with sending their elite Revolutionary Guard to attack us and Europe. They are already in place.
Last week a Christian convert in prison for her faith asked in a letter to the Judiciary “Is Christianity a crime in Iran?” This seemed absurd, yet this new legislation will do just that! Criminalize Christianity and other religions or even no religion! Yes even atheists will receive death. Unbelievers are Kafir, or ” Kafir (Arabic: كافر kāfir; plural كفّار kuffār; feminine كافرة kāfirah) is an Arabic term (from the root K-F-R “to cover”) “unbeliever”, or “disbeliever”. It is used as a derogatory term. The term alludes to a person who rejects or disbelieves in God and the teachings of the Islamic Prophet Muhammad, and denies the dominion and authority of God; or otherwise does not heed the beliefs and prescriptions held by the religion of Islam. Unbelief is called kufr.
The distinction between those who believe in Islam and those who do not is an essential one in the Quran, the book of Islam. Kafir, and its plural kafirun, is used directly 134 times in Quran, its verbal noun “kufr” is used 37 times, and the verbal cognates of kafir are used about 250 times.” (Wikipedia)
How can we sit silently by while this barbarism is instituted and practiced. Western peoples have been ridiculed and called islamaphobes only to hide the true identity of an evil, corrupt regime.
Iran already follows this strict version of law by imprisoning and torturing religious and political minorities, even killing them. They invent charges of espionage and plotting against the state. Imagine if this death penalty was actually codified in their constitution as law. Sends shudders doesn’t it? Can you imagine western nations arresting everyone as Iran does? Simply for belief or non-belief in God? Share this and speak out. They do notice, western leaders do notice when public opinions are shared. Tell lawmakers in the West and in the UN to stop this!
