The Iranian Government has closed the Church in Tehran (Pr. Victor Tamraz) and the Assembly of God in Urumieh bringing them to a very difficult situation even to subsist. By closing the churches the Islamic regime of Iran is forcing the people to abandon the Christian Faith and encouraging the pastors to emigrate abroad. The secret police call first the pastors for an interview when they are "politely" told to leave the region and better emigrate abroad. When they don't do so, the next step follows... Imprisonment, Church closure and oppression. The aim seems to be the eradication of all Christian Churches in Iran through persecution, imprisonment and torture of Christian leaders like happened to PR. Wilson Issavi (Kermanshah) released from prison in April 2010 after 55 days. The Assyrian Pentecostal Church of Kermanshah has been also closed, Pr. Wilson forbidden of any activity and the Church may not be re-opened. Pr. Wilson was also forced to leave the region and his house and still suffers on emotional and physical disturbances caused by the mistreatment in prison (having been seen recently in June 2010).

Famous quotes containing the words leaders and/or current:

    When the leaders choose to make themselves bidders at an auction of popularity, their talents, in the construction of the state, will be of no service. They will become flatterers instead of legislators; the instruments, not the guides, of the people.
    Edmund Burke (1729–1797)

    Talent develops in quiet places, character in the full current of human life.
    Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749–1832)
