  • Fox news as a source? Alarm bells should go off immediately. While Raja’i Shahr prison in Karaj may have murderers and rapists, so does Evin prison, the pastor’s recent “accommodations.” Raja’i Shahr prison is also where a number of non-violent, low-risk male prisoners of conscience are held. Male religious prisoners in particular have been clustered in Raja’i Shahr. See for example:

    By characterising the prison as a place for criminals, and especially violent criminals, Fox News has delivered a terrible insult to these innocent people. But they got their story, what do they care about the facts.

    Yeah, SPB, Anything attributed to Fox News should be looked upon with a very careful eye. Better yet, avoid using Fox News as a source as much as possible if you want me to continue reading these pages, which I enjoy, but wouldn’t near as much if that illustrious propaganda machine of the right were to be read too often by me here. Sorry, but my ears, I’m blind, my ears can’t take the Fox propaganda except in very, very small doses and preferably not at all!
