Pray for Iranian Pastor
Sentenced to Death

Pastor Yousef Nadarkhani has been sentenced to death by an Iranian court for converting from Islam to Christianity. He is guilty of apostasy under Islamic law. Christians like this are being persecuted for their faith all over the world.

I will appear with Greta Van Susteren on the Fox News channel at 10 p.m. Eastern tonight to discuss Pastor Yousef and the global war against Christians.

In Acts chapter 12, the Apostle Peter was in prison. The church prayed, and while they prayed God sent an angel and rescued him. Please forward this email to your family and friends so they can join us in praying for Pastor Yousef.

Thank you and God bless you.

Sincerely,


Franklin Graham
President, Samaritan's Purse

Where did I ever say Jews were persecuted in Iran or that the country should be bombed? While they are persecuted they don’t receive equal treatment, the principles of Jewish schools are Shias and they are not allowed to close on Saturdays. Even the Australian reporter acknowledged that Jews in Iran "keep a low profile" and that few of them wanted to be interviewed. The Jewish population is a small fraction of what in 1979, they left the country that had been there homeland for millennia that should tell you something.

========= update ==============
Youcef Nadarkhani, Imprisoned Pastor, Won't Be Executed, Iran Claims
=====================================================
The Huffington Post By Laura Hibbard
Posted: 03/14/2012 12:54 pm Updated: 03/15/2012 12:46 am
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
An official from Iran has refuted claims of plans to execute imprisoned pastor Youcef Nadarkhani, who has been imprisoned for almost three years on accusations of apostasy, a crime where one disaffiliates themselves from a religion.

The refutation came after human rights investigator Ahmed Shaheed delivered a report to the U.N., which, in addition to citing Iran's "striking pattern of violations of fundamental human rights guaranteed under international law" and the country's "maltreatment of prisoners, dissidents, minorities and women," called for the release of Nadarkhani, FOX News reports.

Iran called Shaheed's 36-page report, which first circulated last week, "false," "fabricated," "biased" and manipulated by "certain Western countries and their cronies on the council," The New York Times reports.

Iran's insistence that Nadarkhani will not be executed is only the latest development in an ongoing legal nightmare, during which a litany of additional accusations, including rape and extortion, have been made against the Christian pastor by the Iranian government.

In September of last year, the Iranian Supreme Court upheld Naderkhani's initial conviction of apostasy after he allegedly refused to recant his Christian faith.

Then, in February, the American Center for Law and Justice received reports that Nadarkhani had been sentenced to death for the 2010 charges -- a ruling the White House quickly condemned in a statement.

"This action is yet another shocking breach of Iran’s international obligations, its own constitution, and stated religious values," the White House statement read. "The United States stands in solidarity with Pastor Nadarkhani, his family, and all those who seek to practice their religion without fear of persecution -- a fundamental and universal human right."


Leonard Leo, chair of the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom, told the Religion News Service last year that Iran's court proceedings can't be trusted.

"The court continues to demand that he recant his faith or otherwise be executed," Leo told RNS. "The most recent court proceedings are not only a sham, but are contrary to Iranian law and international human rights standards."

Despite the reported execution ruling last fall, Iranian envoy Mohammad Javad Larijani told the Human Rights Council that such punishment is not permitted in Iran.

“In the last 33 years after [the Islamic] revolution, no single person has been put to death or executed or pursued for changing his religion from Islam,” he told the council, according to FOX News. “Hundreds of people are changing from other religions to Islam. Why we should be so sensitive about a few people to change their religion from Islam?”

OK so they won't kill him for practicing his religion, they will simply keep him locked up for a long time,guess I was wrong about the mullahs being extremists.
