Iran says its Nuclear Facilities are Immune to Cyber Attack. According to the Associated Press, a senior Iranian military official has claimed the country's nuclear facilities are immune to cyber attack. Gholam Reza Jalali, who heads an Iranian military unit in charge of combating sabotage, was quoted by the official IRNA news agency as saying that Iran and its nuclear facilities possess the technology and knowledge to deal with malicious software. He did not specify what steps have been taken since 2010, when a virus known as Stuxnet disrupted controls of some nuclear centrifuges.

Persecution of Christians is on the rise in Iran. According to World Net Daily, reports coming out of Iran say persecution of Christians is only growing more bold and brazen, as Iranian authorities once again raided a house church - this time in Shiraz - and arrested between 6 to 10 members of the congregation. The detainees are being held in an undisclosed location. "Jihad Watch" publisher Robert Spencer says that the Iranians don't know that they're doing the very thing that will produce more Christians. He said, "They don't know that Christianity grows amid persecution...Islam has expanded through violence and intimidation, so it isn't at all surprising that they'd resort to it again."
