    Christian in Iran is on death row for faith

    I wonder what you guys think of this:

    Christian pastor spends 1,000th day in prison


    New charges for man who refused to teach kids about Islam, told to 'recant faith or die'

    by Michael Carl

    Jailed Christian pastor Youcef Nadarkhani is approaching his 1,000th day in an Iranian jail – where he faces additional charges and possible execution – all because he refused to allow his children to be taught Islam.

    Arrested in 2009, Iranian pastor Nadarkhani remains on death row and fighting a battle for his life. Middle East Concern is now reporting that he will face new charges in September.
    The group revealed that Pastor Nadarkhani was informed on July 4 that he will stand trial for the vague and unspecific charge of “activities against the state” or “against state security, rather than religious charges.”

    Even with international pressure, an Iranian court is letting the death sentence for blasphemy stand.

    The announcement of the new charges will mean a longer prison stay for Nadarkhani, who will spend his 1,000th day in an Iranian jail Sunday.

    American Center for Law and Justice Executive Director Jordan Sekulow said the ACLJ is keeping the pressure on Iran on behalf Pastor Nadarkhani.

    “We continue to work to keep this important story in the news,” Sekulow said. “On July 8, Christian Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani will have been imprisoned for 1,000 days. Nearly three years – in captivity – facing a death sentence because of his Christian faith.”
    Support for Pastor Nadarkhani is growing around the world.

    A large crowd protested outside of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s Rio de Janeiro hotel when the Iranian leader visited Brazil in June for the Rio+20 U.N. conference.
    Brazilian pastor Silas Malafaia organized the June 21 protest to demand religious liberty in Iran and an immediate release of Nadarkhani.

    In the U.S., the Senate Foreign Relations Committee unanimously passed Senate Resolution 385, demanding that Iran’s government release the jailed pastor.
    Authored by Louisiana Republican Sen. David Vitter and supported by 10 co-sponsors, the bill cites the pastor’s path to nearly 1,000 days in prison.
    Whereas, in October 2009, Youcef Nadarkhani, an Iranian Christian, protested an Iranian law that would impose Islam on his Christian children;
    Whereas, in September 2010, a local court in Iran accused Youcef Nadarkhani of abandoning the Islamic faith of his ancestors and condemned him to death for apostasy;

    Whereas the court sentenced Youcef Nadarkhani to death by hanging;
    Whereas, on December 5, 2010, Youcef Nadarkhani appealed his conviction and sentence to the Supreme Revolutionary Court in Qom, Iran, and the court held that if it could be proven that he was a practicing Muslim in adulthood, his death sentence should be carried out unless he recants his Christian faith and adopts Islam;

    Whereas, from September 25 to September 28, 2011, a local court in Iran held hearings to determine if Youcef Nadarkhani was a practicing Muslim in adulthood and held that he had abandoned the faith of his ancestors and must be sentenced to death if he does not recant his faith;

    Whereas, on numerous occasions, the judiciary of Iran offered to commute Youcef Nadarkhani’s sentence if he would recant his faith;
    Whereas numerous Government of Iran officials have attempted to coerce Youcef Nadarkhani to recant his Christian faith and accept Islam in exchange for his freedom;

    Whereas Youcef Nadarkhani continues to refuse to recant his faith;
    Whereas the Government of Iran continues to indefinitely imprison Youcef Nadarkhani for choosing to practice Christianity; and
    Whereas the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Iran has reported that, at the time of his report, on March 6, 2012, the Government of Iran had secretly executed 249 people in 2011, and in 2010, the Government of Iran secretly executed more than 300 people:
    The bill ends with an unconditional demand that Iran release Pastor Nadarkhani and all others imprisoned for their faith.

    An unnamed Foreign Relations Committee staff member confirmed the unanimous vote.
    Sekulow said Pastor Youcef’s courage while still facing a death sentence should serve as an inspiration to Americans.

    “Pastor Youcef’s courage and commitment is truly inspiring,” he said. “When Iranian officials demanded that he recant his faith in Jesus Christ or die, he responded with two words: ‘I cannot.’

    “We cannot and should not stop working to secure Pastor Youcef’s immediate and unconditional release.”

    Sekulow added that the power of prayer is vital to securing Pastor Nadarkhani’s release.
    “We also know the importance of the power of prayer. And, so does Pastor Youcef. In a letter he released from prison not long ago, he specifically thanked everyone who has ‘asked for my release, or campaigns and human rights activities which are going on against the charges which are applied to me,’” Sekulow said, quoting Pastor Nadarkhani.
    The jailed pastor has asked for prayer.

    Sekulow said, “We continue to pray for Pastor Youcef and all of those who face persecution because of their Christian faith.”

    Fox news does not count, it's the only conservative main stream media. This information is beyond alarming. We are going to give money to Egypt who are allowing such acts?



    "Christians in today's Pakistan (2% of the population) have paid a high price for being in the minority. In Islamabad, the capital, a community of 5,000 of them live in extreme poverty, literally walled-off from the rest of society."



    All of the wears people down. It's meant to, and the real goal is demoralization.

    Re: Christian in Iran is on death row for faith

    A nice Israel Hasbra lie about Iran. In the Islamic Republic, all cases of non-Muslims are referred to their religious courts. Iran has three reserved seats in the Majlis (parliament) for Christians and one for the Jewish community.

    Western media is full of lies about how the non-Muslims, Sunni Muslims, Kurds (both Muslim and Jews) and Gay/Lesbian are mistreated. In 2010, French Zionist Jewish author Bernard-Henri Levy, supported by French president Nicolas Sarkozy alerted the French public to the case of Sakineh Mohammad-Ashtanni, a young Iranian woman reportedly condemned to death by stoning for committing adultery. He launched a signature campaign through the Internet to put pressure on the Iranian authorities, urging them to stop this barbaric act. In reality, Sakineh, was sentenced to death for conspiring with her boyfriend to murder her own husband. But, one has excuse the Zionist jews because their Holy Talmud allows such sexual affairs outside marriage.

    Re: Christian in Iran is on death row for faith

    Absolutely shocking arrogance on the part of the US to think that they can pass a resolution requiring another part of the world act in accordance with their unilateral ruling. Who do they think they are? That body in Iran could just as well pass a resolution requiring the US to do the same on their soil. How do you think the US would view that? Laughing their asses off, I suspect. What makes them think their word has any greater gravity?

    I'm personally against any death penalty broadly, just for the record. The US has it. Who are they to mandate the laws, values, and practices of other nations?
    Dare to fail.

    You're absolutely right Rehmat nearly everything that they can put in the news is to make the Western world hate the people in the Middle East to support their wars.
    You know they are listening to you but they can't hear you.
