Richard Land, “No Nukes: Time to go ‘the next step’ with Iran”:

The Iranian regime has also shown itself to be among the world’s worst violators of religious freedom. Last month Hamide Najifi, an Iranian citizen from the Christian minority, was arrested by security forces. Authorities put her on trial in the Revolutionary Court in Mashhad for professing her Christian faith. Two weeks later, they took her through further interrogation at the detention center of the Mashhad Intelligence Ministry, sentenced her to a three-month house arrest, and seized custody of her child, who was taken into a government-affiliated care system. According to reports, they also pressured Najifi to renounce her Christian faith.

On Dec. 28, Obama said, “For months, the Iranian people have sought nothing more than to exercise their universal rights. Each time they have done so, they have been met with the iron fist of brutality, even on solemn occasions and holy days.”
