From 1980 to the late 1990s Iranian assassins killed over 110 Iranian exiles... The Iranian government is having more success at cutting most Iranians off from the Internet. The primary effort is building an internal Internet just for those in Iran who cannot be trusted with the World Wide Web. That means most Iranians are finding it more and more difficult to reach the international Internet. Late in 2012 Iran introduced a heavily censored local version of YouTube, as YouTube itself is banned in Iran. China is helping Iran, as well as a lot of other countries, to censor use of the Internet. source: http://www.strategypage.com/htmw/htiw/articles/20130611.aspx

In 1979, there were less than 500 known Christians from a Muslim background in Iran. Today the most conservative estimate is that there are at least 100,000 believers in the nation.

Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, who has not been seen in public for more than three weeks, has issued a message urging Iranians to produce more babies, which he said is essential for the future of the Islamic Republic... He said 150 million is the “minimum” that Iran should have and that it is capable for more... The Iranian population is estimated at 79 million in 2013 and about half are about 35 years of age. source: http://english.alarabiya.net/en/variety/2013/11/01/Baby-boom-essential-for-future-of-Iran-says-supreme-leader.html

An Iranian poet and human rights activist was hanged in an unidentified prison on January 27, according to the Iran Human Rights Documentation Center. According to local human rights groups and the Iran Human Rights Documentation Center, the charges against the 32-year-old poet, Hashem Shabaani Nejad, were listed as “waging war on God,” being an “enemy of God,” spreading “corruption on earth,” and threatening “national security.” He was arrested in early 2011 and spent his time in prison until his order of execution came. Freedom House issued a statement on February 5th, pointing out that Shabaani was subjected to severe torture and interrogation during the three years he spent in prison. source: http://www.frontpagemag.com/2014/majid-rafizadeh/executed-for-waging-war-on-allah/

The Iranian regime has slashed its funding of terrorist groups in the Middle East after its budget was hit by a plunge in oil prices. The regime is now allocating 25 per cent less to Lebanese Hezbollah and other paramilitary groups dependent on the clerical regime for their cash-flow, Kuwaiti newspaper al Qabas said. A sharp drop in oil prices from $140 a barrel to around $75 a barrel was cited as the main reason for the cut in spending on groups that Iran pays to meddle in the region...The Iranian regime is transferring money via Chinese companies and banks to help fund their terrorist Quds Force. A new Western intelligence report seen by the Reuters news agency names the Shenzhen Lanhao Days Electronic Technology Co Ltd as one outfit receiving Iranian cash which is then passed onto the elite force which is part of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps. The Quds Force provides arms, aid and training for terrorist groups in the Middle East... The intelligence report said the Central Bank of Iran (CBI) holds accounts with the Bank of Kunlun Co Ltd, a China National Petroleum Corp unit. Quds-controlled Iranian companies, including one called Bamdad Capital Development Co, then make transfers from these accounts to either Chinese entities directly controlled by the Quds or to Chinese entities owed money by the Quds, such as Shenzhen Lanhao. source: http://www.ncr-iran.org/en/news/terrorism-fundamentalism/17546
