(Compass Direct) The United States has approved emergency resettlement for a family of four Iranian Christians left stranded in Turkey since an October deportation order.
Last week Zivar Khademian and her three adult children were enrolled in three days of cultural orientation for resettlement in the United States under the auspices of the International Catholic Migration Commission (ICMC) in Istanbul.
This family of four have fled Iran in order to escape the religious persecution one faces from converting away from Islam. Apparently Kazem Moini, one of the sons was thrown into jail for up to six months for reportedly duplicating Christian tapes while his sister, Fatemeh Moini was facing possible marriage to a strict Muslim relative (who probably would not have appreciated her newly found faith).
(Compass Direct) Later, the family also obtained a copy of an arrest order issued in October 2004 by the Supreme Court of Iran against [Zivar] Khademian for committing apostasy.
Apparently everyone had immediate reasons to leave the Persian nation whose current government seems to lack tolerance towards those who defect from the state religion, Islam. Thanks to the assistance of the US government (not to mention other individuals as well) this family will hopefully be able to enjoy a safe trip towards a country that believes in freedom of faith--America.

Check out a funny site dedicated to the absurdity and satire nature of saying “It’s All George Bush’s Fault!"
I hope that you don't think this is spam. I really do think that you'd appreciate a site like this since we share the same idealogy.
