      Saudis release Christians
      August 6, 2012

      Almost three dozen imprisoned Christian Ethiopians in Saudi Arabia have
      been freed after months of being held by the authorities there.

      The 35 Ethiopians were imprisoned last December 17 for conducting a
      prayer meeting in a private home.

      "We understand that the Saudi's assaulted, harassed, and pressured the
      Christians to convert to Islam during the time of their incarceration,"
      says International Christian Concern's Jonathan Racho.

      According to Racho, the female prisoners were especially mistreated and
      humiliated.

      After International Christian Concern launched a campaign to free the
      Christians, the Saudis changed their message several times, claiming the
      Ethiopians were mixing with the opposite gender and were engaged in
      human trafficking.

      "They deceive the international community by claiming that they want to
      promote tolerance between Muslims, Christians, Jews and others," says
      the organization's spokesman, "but in fact, the Saudis are one of the
      most Christian-persecuting countries in the world. [In addition] the
      Saudis also export a radical form of Islam and thereby fuel persecution
      of Christians elsewhere."

      International Christian Concern is pleased their campaign to free the
      Ethiopian Christians finally worked -- but Racho says what remains is a
      total intolerance of other faiths on Saudi soil.
