“This high rate of conversion of Iranian youth to Christianity is in spite of rigorous Islamic indoctrination of the youth in their families and educational system,” according to the report.

“The Islamic government of Iran dedicates massive budgets to the support of Islamic organizations that promote Islam among the youth within and without Iran’s borders,” the report continued. “Regardless of such efforts, Iranian youth seem to become increasingly distant from Islam, which is a cause of great concern for the Iranian Islamic government.”

    "High rate of conversion"? One would like to have more concrete information than simply "high rate." They "SEEM to become increasingly distant from Islam"? Again, a less impressionistic assessment of the situation would be helpful.
