The Death Sentence Seems Ever More Likely for Youcef Nadarkhani

Iran, don’t do this.  Don’t.

Imprisoned Iranian pastor Youcef Nadarkhani, originally sentenced to death for apostasy and refusing to renounce Christianity, is now in even greater danger of being put to death in light of reports in state-run media of other charges, including being a Zionist and a threat to national security.  “The charge of being a Zionist and thus a traitor is among the most serious accusations that can be made in Iran,” said Jordan Sekulow, executive director of the American Center for Law and Justice, or ACLJ. “Unfortunately, we know that this is the charge Iran levies to justify executing people who were actually arrested, imprisoned and tried on completely different charges.”

What barbaric inhumanity pretending to be ‘law’.

In a ruling from the Iranian Supreme Court obtained by, Nadarkhani was sentenced to execution by hanging for breaking Islamic law by conducting Christian worship and baptizing himself and others.

Is there no one in Iran to speak out for this man and against this insane ruling?
