Petition to call on Iran to save Christian Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani

In an attempt to add to the diversity of my reporting today I bring you this story.

As you are all aware I am a Christian. This is my choice and a choice made of my own free will. I totally respect everyone’s freedom to believe as they will. To me personally, that is what ‘free will’ is about.

Petition to Secretary of State Clinton – Call on Iran to save Christian pastor

To: Secretary of State Clinton

We cannot allow this atrocity to be carried out. Christian Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani faces imminent execution in Iran for his Christian faith. In July, your office stated that it was “dismayed over reports that the Iranian courts are requiring Youcef Nadarkhani to recant his Christian faith or face the death penalty for apostasy.” Now, Pastor Youcef faces execution that could be carried out at any time.

It is absolutely critical that you call for Iran to overturn Pastor Youcef’s death sentence and demand his full and unconditional release from prison. As other world leaders denounce Iran’s condemning this man to death just for being a Christian, it is critical that America – the land of liberty – take a stand and pressure Iran to release Pastor Youcef.

I urge you to take immediate action to call on Iran to stop this ultimate human rights abuse, and free Pastor Youcef before it’s too late.

I am saddened when I read something like this. I am told it is coming up as a top story in the U.SA on the news bulletins. Please read for yourself and if you feel inclined, sign the petition. I have signed it.

It is sad that in the 21s century people are still persecuted for their beliefs. It would seem that the TRNC are not the only state to ignore Human Rights.
