SAVE PASTOR YOUCEF NADARKHAN

Voice of the Martyrs is reporting that Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani's death sentence has been upheld by the Iranian Supreme Court and that your urgent action is needed!


Pastor Youcef, a leader in the Full Gospel "Church of Iran" was arrested in 2009, after protesting a decision by the government requiring that his son study the Quran. He was later sentenced to death by the Iranian regime for apostasy. Pastor Youcef appealed the decision and was waiting for the Supreme Court to review his case and decide whether to uphold the death sentence. A judicial execution of a Christian convicted of apostasy has not occurred in Iran in two decades.

Sources inside Iran have informed our ministry partners that there is no more action that can be done within the Iranian court system at this time to overturn this sentence which can be carried out at any time. The only option right now is to IMMEDIATELY and SWIFTLY raise international attention to this issue.

Please petition the Iranian leaders, United Nations and the European Union on behalf of Youcef Nadarkhani. US citizens may also wish to contact their US Representatives. Get others involved by forwarding this e-mail to everyone in your address book.
