50 Children Killed in Iran and as Many as 15,000 Protestors Could Face Death Penalty
The future of Iran seems to be hanging in the balance, as tens of thousands of protestors continue fighting back against the Islamic regime in a very rare show of disobedience. The situation is looking bleak as 50 children under the age of 18 have been killed during the protests and nearly 15,000 Iranians having been arrested, many of whom may possibly face the death sentence. Of the 15,000 protestors arrested, it is not yet clear how many of them are children. According to the New York times, teenage girls and boys have been at the center of the protesters. Iranian officials have said the average age of protesters is 15.
The Islamic leaders are not holding back. They know their Islamic power is being challenged. The Iranian parliament overwhelmingly voted for the death penalty for protestors. A letter signed by 227 out of 290 members of parliament likened the protestors, who are angered at the killing of a young woman for not properly covering her hair, to ISIS, the Islamic militant group that killed, raped, and pillaged. “A good lesson” is needed, according to the letter, to strike fear into anyone else thinking of joining the protests.
The protests broke out in September over the death of Amini, a 22-year-old Kurdish Iranian woman, who had been detained by the morality police for allegedly not wearing her hijab as dictated by Islamic law.
BTJ training for Iranian pastors has felt the impact from the unrest. Many of the evangelists making their way to the BTJ training facility were not able to communicate openly with the coordinators due to increased security measures. “Things are dangerous in Iran right now,” a BTJ reporter in Iran wrote in a text message. “Protestors have flooded the streets chanting ‘death to the dictator!’”
This boldness has rarely been seen in Iran in recent memory; something definitely seems to be shifting in the Persian nation.

The unrest in Iran is the sign of many things from the youth and others today who out of anger lash out in violent protests causing for many protesting DEATH un-necessary. These violent protests anywhere in the World are the wrong way to handle your disagreement with your Government and its Leader. In this kind of situation NO ONE WINS. This is not how ALLAH wants you to handle your upsetment. Delegate a Leader in your group to talk with the Government and its leader which is a PEACEFUL way of handling it. I always wrote often many times on FACEBOOK NEWS SITES when the BLM’s were protesting about my BELARUSIAN FACEBOOK FRIENDS where in every News footage of their many protesting in the millions for a year always marched and stood PEACEFUL and never PROTESTED with anger and violence and no one was killed but they all stood in unison united with each other for the same cause because they were all angry that the leader was re-elected. I commend them for doing this ten fold. Islam Law and Sharia Law are very strict with guidelines on what is tolerated and permitted and forbidden and all MUSLIMS must adhere to it and if not then they punish in various ways. they have always been this way for centuries. It all stems back Religiously to ALLAH and the QRAN. Billions of Muslins are in Mosques daily praying to ALLAH and at the wailing wall in ISRAEL. you need to pray to ALLAH asking him for help. THE IRAN GOVERNMENT and its LEADER do not want its youth and women to be succumbed to the false values and idiologies that many of our YOUTH and women and men have fallen under the trap of causing them to be drawn into it changing the ways its been done for centuries. PLEASE NO MORE VIOLENT PROTESTING so no one else get killed innocently.
