TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KLIX)- Over a two night period at churches in Filer and Twin Falls well in excess of 500 people came to hear a former Muslim speak about his conversion to Christianity.  It’s not all Pastor Shahram Hadian is talking about.  He warns Islam and Christianity aren’t compatible.  Hadian, who came to the United States as a boy from Iran explains Islam promises the only sure way to heaven is martyrdom.  He also argues there is no such thing as radical Islam.  In his words “fundamentalist Islam” requires making non-Muslims submit to the faith.

During his remarks Tuesday night at Eastside Southern Baptist Church in Twin Falls he cautioned there could be some dangerous people among the Syrian Muslim refugees on their way to resettlement in the Magic Valley.  He claims most government officials are unaware Islam isn’t a religion-of-peace and indeed he suggests it isn’t even religion.
