From Newsmax – we hear:

Iranian authorities began to systematically seize and destroy Bibles after a Shiite cleric issued an urgent warning about the spread of Christianity.

Authorities in northwestern Iran seized 6,500 Bibles, according to the Iranian Christian news organization Mohabat News, which quotes an official as saying of the seizure that “all religions are strengthening their power to confront Islam; otherwise, what does this huge number of Bibles mean?” The agency has reported several other recent incidents of Bibles and other Christian literature being seized and sometimes publicly burned.

Iranians burning the Christian Bible...where is the outrage in America?

Mohabat reports that the government-connected cleric, Ayatollah Hadi Jahangosha, warned of “the spread of Christianity among our youth,” pointing to burgeoning satellite programming, literature, and religious articles promoting the Western tradition.

“Everyone in society should feel responsibility in this matter and play his or her role in spreading of pure Islam and fight false and distorted cultures,” the news agency quotes him as saying.

Postscript:  From Ezekiel in the Old Testament we read about the coming battle of Gog and Magog – Islamic armies descending with Russia onto the Northern plains of Israel – where 5 out of 6 of them are destroyed by fire from heaven.  Iran is clearly in prophecy and its actions now indicate that Western missionaries are making serious headway in these last days to bring some to Christ…perhaps the youth who see the perverse direction that the government is taking toward the West and Israel – resulting in an isolation of their country from the world, its knowledge and progress…

Many countries have banned and burned the Bible – including secular Jewish elements who are taught by their rabbis that Jesus was a heretic and not to be considered the Messsiah…the world’s history as we know it is slowly but surely sliding toward its prophesied ending…however, when you read the “back of the book”, you will find that “we  won”…
