I dont know, but until I see posters (Sam L and whoever else) be as critical of countries like Saudi Arabia as they are about Iran, ill take it with a grain of salt...
I can't wait to be concerned.
I saw, recently, that there were a surprising amount of Jews in Iran. I'd read Every Spy a Prince
, by Dan Raviv and Yossi Melman, and knew about the repatriation of Jews to Israel, in the earlier days of modern Israel...and as a latter-day Catholic, I'm becoming more aware of Catholics in Iran.
All statistical information is from church-based sources  and reflects the situation in the year 2000 (Christians formed 0.2% of the total Iranian population in 2000).
Using C.I.A. World Fact Book figures for 2008:
65,875,224 (July 2008 est.)
.2% of 65,875,224 = 131,750 people
using world-gazeteer.com figures (estimates of 65,540,224 people in 2002, and 61,839,435 people in 1998 [official censuses in 1996 and 2006, I won't go there...] I get an approximate guesstimate of 63,689,829. Which would still equal 127,380 people.
127,379,659 -- summed figure....(*0.5 = 63,689,829 -- interpolated figure for 2000)
(Granted, it's a far cry from what we in the U.S. abort each year...)
