    Re: UPDATE: Mexican senate condemns Iran

    While listening to the radio today, the ACLJ announced the latest news about our brother Pastor Youcef. They've once again handed down a death sentence. Death by "pegging"???? At least pegging is what I thought they said. Don't know what that is but I'm certain it isn't pleasant. Praying for comfort and encouragement for him and that his faith continue to stand even to the end. Praying we also when faced with such persecution may be able to stand.
    Don't seek too much knowledge. You just may be putting more weight on your shoulders than you're able to bare. Let God be the one to decide how quickly you grow.

    Iranian Authorities Order Death Warrant for Pastor Nadarkhani

    By Michael Ireland
    Senior International Correspondent, ASSIST News Service

    RASHT, IRAN (ANS) -- A US-based ministry has received a report out of Iran that the Iranian courts have signed an execution order for Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani.

    “At this point this is the only detail we know," said Jason DeMars of www.presenttruthmn.com .

    “Based upon how the Iranian courts have acted in the past we do not know what to anticipate. Often they will execute people without any prior notice to attorney’s or family,” Demars said in an e-mail to ANS.

    “The order has not been delivered to Youcef’s family and we do not know if they will allow another appeal. We also do not know if it has been approved by the Ayatollah who is the head of the Judiciary, Sadegh Larijani,” said Demars.

    “At this point ask that you be praying for his deliverance and that God would use this as an opportunity to declare to everyone that all power is given to the Lord Jesus Christ and resides in His Name. It is never too late for the Lord to bring deliverance.”

    Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? As it is written, ‘For your sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.’ No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

    UPDATES: White House Statement Today: Report from CSW UK

    'The White HouseOffice of the Press Secretary

    For Immediate Release

    February 23, 2012

    Statement by the Press Secretary on the Case of Iranian Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani

    The United States condemns in the strongest possible terms reports that Iranian authorities’ reaffirmed a death sentence for Iranian Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani for the sole reason of his refusal to recant his Christian faith. This action is yet another shocking breach of Iran’s international obligations, its own constitution, and stated religious values. 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. The trial and sentencing process for Pastor Nadarkhani demonstrates the Iranian government’s total disregard for religious freedom, and further demonstrates Iran's continuing violation of the universal rights of its citizens. The United States calls upon the Iranian authorities to immediately lift the sentence, release Pastor Nadarkhani, and demonstrate a commitment to basic, universal human rights, including freedom of religion. The United States renews its calls for people of conscience and governments around the world to reach out to Iranian authorities and demand Pastor Nadarkhani's immediate release.'

    From CSW, UK:

    Iran: Pastor Nadarkhani’s lawyers still awaiting confirmation of execution order (Feb 23)

    Christian Solidarity Worldwide (CSW) has learned that Pastor Nadarkhani spoke to his wife as recently as yesterday, although his lawyers and the Church of Iran leadership are still seeking clarification and written confirmation of a report that the order for execution has been issued.

    The Supreme Leader of Iran, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, has not made a decision on Pastor Nadarkhani’s death sentence for apostasy, despite two appeals for him to so from the lower court in Rasht, which originally heard Nadarkhani’s case. He and Mr Sadegh Larijani, the Head of the Iranian Judiciary, are the only people with the authority to stop the execution, but without their intervention the authorities are obliged to carry out the Supreme Court ruling, which stated that Pastor Nadarkhani could be executed if he did not recant

    .
    Pastor Nadarkhani has been offered freedom in exchange for renouncing his faith on at least four occasions, but has consistently refused to do so.According to Iranian law, once the execution order is officially confirmed, Pastor Nadarkhani’s lawyers would have a final opportunity to stop the execution if notified in time. However, it is not uncommon for the Iranian authorities to execute a prisoner without notification. In 1990, Pastor Hossein Soodmand was executed without notification.

    CSW’s Advocacy Director Andrew Johnston said, “In sentencing Pastor Nadarkhani to death for apostasy, Iran has so far flouted its own law and the principles of the international covenants to which it is signatory. We therefore have no confidence that the Iranian authorities will follow due process and notify his family and legal team if a decision to execute him has indeed been taken. We urge the international community to press the Iranian authorities for the release of Pastor Nadarkhani and to urge them to follow their own laws with regards to guaranteeing freedom of religion for Christians and other minorities in Iran.”

    UPDATE: State Department also releases statement

    'Execution Order for Iranian Christian Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani

    Press Statement
    Mark C. Toner
    Deputy Spokesperson, Office of the Spokesperson
    Washington, DC
    February 23, 2012

    The United States is deeply concerned by reports that a provincial court has renewed the execution order for Iranian Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani. Mr. Nadarkhani is facing a death sentence on charges of apostasy and has refused to recant his Christian faith. Such government persecution for simply following one’s faith is common in Iran, where followers of many religious traditions face harsh treatment and severe violations of their religious freedom. We have also witnessed a dramatic increase in the arrest of adherents to the Baha’i Faith recently, as well as an increase in repression of freedom of expression in all forms. We stand with religious and political leaders from around the world in condemning Youcef Nadarkhani’s conviction and call for his immediate release. '

    CDN: 'Rumors of Imminent Execution of Iranian Pastor [Nadarkhani] Unconfirmed'

    Compass Direct News reports:

    'Lawyers await written confirmation that court issued execution order.

    ISTANBUL, February 24 (CDN) — Lawyers for an Iranian pastor awaiting a final decision on his death sentence have not received communication from authorities that their client will be executed, despite reports that his death is imminent.

    Rumors of an imminent execution of Yousef Nadarkhani were leaked this week after a source close to one of his lawyers contacted international media, informing them that a lower court had signed Nadarkhani’s execution papers and that his death sentence would be carried out soon, sources told Compass.

    “The lawyer is waiting for confirmation, but he understood from a source that the execution was issued,” said Firouz Khandjani, a member of the council of the Church of Iran, Nadarkhani’s denomination. “Now we are trying to understand exactly what is happening. Because the information came from someone close to the lawyer, he took it seriously.”

    Nadarkhani’s case had been sent to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei for a decision on his death sentence, but legally the lower court still has the authority to issue an execution order, Khandjani said. Khamenei may or may not make a decision, and if the court were to issue an execution order, Khameni would have the authority to block it, Khandjani said.

    Though Nadarkhani’s lawyers have not received written confirmation of an execution order, Khandjani said he found it “worrying” that the government has repeatedly disregarded its own law and legal process in its treatment of Christians.

    The Iranian government has executed prisoners without prior notice, sources told Compass, though it is not common.

    “We are concerned for the safety of Christians in Iran, because the government is not respecting the law or the legal procedures,” Khandjani said. “We are waiting for a confirmation, but we have to take action, because we know of people who were executed without notification.”

    Nadarkhani spoke to his wife as recently as Wednesday (Feb. 22), according to sources, and Jubilee Campaign reported that the American Center for Law and Justice had confirmed that he was still alive earlier today.

    Some sources told Compass they are skeptical of the credibility of information that Nadarkhani’s lawyers received and the certainty with which international press have been reporting his “imminent death.” They say this may be a governmental ploy to gauge international reaction to such a rumor.

    Christians in Iran are routinely arrested and interrogated. Most of them belong to networks of house churches meeting in small groups in secret.

    In December the head of Iran’s Judiciary, Ayatollah Sadeq Larijani, reportedly ordered the presiding judge over the trial in Rasht to make no moves on Nadarkhani’s case for one year.

    In September 2010 Nadarkhani was sentenced to death after a court of appeals in Rasht, 243 kilometers (151 miles) northwest of Tehran, found him guilty of leaving Islam. He has been in prison since October 2009.

    The court in Rasht was expected to pronounce a verdict on Nadarkhani’s appeal in October 2011 but instead sent the Christian’s case to the nation’s Islamic authority, Khamenei.

    At an appeal hearing in June, the Supreme Court of Iran upheld Nadarkhani’s sentence but asked the court in Rasht to determine if he was a practicing Muslim before his conversion. The court declared that Nadarkhani was not a practicing Muslim before his conversion, but that he was still guilty of apostasy due to his Muslim ancestry.

    The Supreme Court had also determined that his death sentence could be annulled if he recanted his faith. The Rasht court gave Nadarkhani three chances to recant Christianity in accordance with sharia (Islamic law), but Nadarkhani refused to do so. The Supreme Court in essence ruled that Nadarkhani could be executed if he did not recant.

    “You have to consider that Nadarkhani has been condemned twice,” Khandjani said. “One time by a local court, and then the Supreme Court confirmed the death sentence.”

    Authorities arrested Nadarkhani in his home city of Rasht in October 2009 on charges that he questioned obligatory religion classes in Iranian schools. After finding him guilty of apostasy, the court of appeals in Rasht in November 2010 issued a written confirmation of his charges and death sentence.

    One of Nadarkhani’s lawyers, Mohammad Ali Dadkhah, also faces charges for “actions and propaganda against the Islamic regime,” due to his human rights activities.

    Iranian authorities view Iranian Christians as pawns of the West trying to bring down the regime, sources said. As Christians in Iran are held hostage to the government’s political whims, some Iranian Christians say the key to their freedom is continued pressure from the international community.

    “We have to keep praying and sharing information about Christians in Iran, because this is a difficult moment for the people of Iran,” Khandjani said. “The minorities are particularly affected, but Iranians in general are under pressure from the government. Their freedoms are very restricted.”

    Thank you for your prayers for Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani, his family and all other Christians in Iran (who may now be in even greater danger).

    'Iran Puts Off Execution of Christian Pastor...Unconfirmed' (VOM)

    From VOM

    February 28, 2012

    'it is being reported by the Israel National News..

    [http://www.israelnationalnews.com/Ne...#.T008xYfxrFL]

    ..that the execution of Pastor Youcef has been temporarily put off. The Voice of the Martyrs has not yet confirmed this report. However, here is the most up to date information we have from the Israel National News article. Please keep praying for Pastor Youcef and his wife and children, as well as those who are making the decisions concerning his case.

    Iran has put off the execution of Christian Pastor Yousof Nadarkhani -- probably in response to massive international pressure -- but it is not clear for how long.

    Nadarkhani was due to be executed on Tuesday, after having lost the final appeal against a conviction on a charge of apostasy in Iran's Supreme Court.'

    False Reports on Internet of Hanging of Youcef Nadarkhani

    The reports of the hanging of Youcef Nadarkhani yesterday (March 3) that have appeared on the Internet are false. According to the ACLJ and other sources close to Nadarkhani he is alive. I could find no official announcement of any execution by the Iranian government.

    UPDATE: Iran Finally Admits Nadarkhani Case Involves his Faith; Make More Allegations

    From the ACLJ via ICC (persecution.
    org]


    The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) report important developments in the Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani case at a meet of the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, Switzerland yesterday (March 12th), in Brazil , and in the Netherlands.

    1) UN Special Rapporteur Dr. Ahmeed Shaheed presented his report on human rights abuses in Iran. He did not specifically mention Pastor Youcef or the persecution of Christian is in Iran in his formal report, but in his closing remarks [and/or possibly immediately following his report] he specifically called for Pastor Youcef's release.

    2) Iran admitted for the first time to the international community that Pastor Youcef's case concerned his religious beliefs. Iran made three new allegations against Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani : a) he invited junior school students to his home to preach to them without the consent of the school or parent; b) he converted the basement of his house to a church without obtaining permission; and c) he offended Islam by preaching Christianity.

    [Comment: it is interesting that Iran say nothing about their earlier false allegations of “rape”, "extortion" and "security related" crimes ' made in October 2011]

    3) Brazil is directly engaging the Iranian ambassador to their country regarding the case.

    4) A Dutch member of parliament delivered a petition [with 20,000 signatures] to the Iranian ambassador to the Netherlands.

    UPDATE: Are the Iranian Government Statements about Pastor Nadarkhani Trustworthy?

    From Jason DeMars (Present Truth Ministries):

    'Recently the Huffington Post wrote an article stating that Iranian authorities claim that Youcef Nadarkhani will not be executed. While this appears to be great news, we cannot trust it. We have documented many instances that Iranian media and government authorities have lied about this case to the public. They have recently acknowledged that he is charged with Christian activities but continue to deny that he has been convicted of apostasy. We have copies of his written verdict that can easily be found online stating that his only charge is apostasy. In addition, his attorney, Mr. Mohammed Dadkhah, has clearly stated that the only charges levied against his client are apostasy. Iran wants Youcef’s case to disappear from the news so that they can do as they wish with him, but we will not forget and we will keep praying and working until he is released.'

    Also, there have been rumors circulating once again that Youcef was executed. These rumors are completely false. We are thankful to be able to confirm that as of today, March 16, Youcef is alive. Keep praying and spreading the word to everyone you know; ask your friends and your pastors to do the same.'
