Historical Increase of Executions in Iran

251 people, including six women, have been executed in the first six months of this year as Iran goes on a killing rampage of its own citizens, according to reports.

Executions in Iran are already double this year compared to last year. Last month, June saw the sharpest increase in executions for the entire year.

Many of the executions are taking place in secret. Of the 251 executions, only 31 were announced by the media and Iranian officials and 220 were unannounced. Of the executions, it is not clear how many were for religious reasons, but six of those killed were executed for charges of moharebeh, (or crimes against Allah).

Iran is dealing with major unrest inside the country. Since May 7, there have been massive nationwide protests and even though spreading Christianity is illegal, Iran has been seeing an increase of the number of Christians in the underground house church. The Islamic regime of Iran is using death and fear as a tool to keep the church from growing.

BTJ is working with the underground house church in Iran to deliver Bibles throughout the nation. As the church in Iran grows, so too does the demand for Bibles. Please keep Iran in your prayers this year as many believers continue to suffer persecution.

Dr. Eugene Bach is a known trouble-maker with an active imagination and sinful past. He has a PhD, but is not a real doctor, so please do not call for him during a medical emergency on an airplane when someone is having a heart attack. Eugene started working for Back to Jerusalem in the year 2000 after a backroom deal involving Chinese spies, the NRA, Swiss bankers, and a small group of Apostolic Christians that only baptize in Jesus’ name. He spends most of his time in closed countries attempting to topple governments by proclaiming the name of Jesus and not taking showers. From time-to-time he pretends to be a writer. He is not good at it, but everyone around him tries to humor him.
