“I am told I will hang for my faith in Jesus,” says American pastor who faces death sentence in Iran

images-1Until now, the Obama Regime has been totally ignoring the plight of an American pastor being beaten and tortured in an Iranian prison, who now is scheduled to go before a “hanging” judge in Iran on Monday, Jan. 21st.

Telegraph  An American Christian pastor faces a possible death sentence in Iran after prosecutors accused him of harming national security on charges he and his supporters claim amount to religious persecution.

imagesSaeed Abedini, 32, who is Iranian born, is expected to go on trial next week before a revolutionary tribunal in Tehran in a hearing presided over by a judge blacklisted by the European Union for handing down harsh verdicts. His wife, Najmeh, says he has suffered beatings during interrogation and has expressed fears for his life in letters to her. “This is the process in my life today: one day I am told I will be freed and allowed to see my kids on Christmas (which was a lie) and the next day I am told I will hang for my faith in Jesus,” Mr Abedini, a father-of-two, wrote in one letter. “One day there are intense pains after beatings in interrogations, the next day they are nice to you and offer you candy.”

The origins of the charges against Mr Abdini are not clear. But the American Centre for Law and Justice, a Christian advocacy group founded by the evangelist preacher, Pat Robertson, said it was connected with starting a home church movement.


Harming national security is a capital crime under Iran’s legal statute. Critics say it is vaguely defined and used to suppress opponents of the country’s Islamic regime. Mr Abdini, who converted to Christianity at the age of 20, was building an orphanage near the city of Rasht on the Caspian Sea, fuelled by a belief that the Bible teaches helping widows and orphans, according to his wife.

Mr Abidini had travelled to Iran nine times since his detention before being arrested again. “He had no worries that he would be arrested, believing that he kept his end of the promise and that the government would keep their end,” she told AFP.

He has not had access to a lawyer since being re-arrested, she added. Mr Abdini is expected to be tried by Abbas Pir-Abassi, a judge subject to EU sanctions for human rights violations after sentencing several activists to death.

  1. ……..and we the Faithful, sons and daughters of Christ will continue to pray for your release, the welfare of your soul, and the eventual rejoining to your family. In any event, we will hold the responsibllity solely at the hands of a satan lover/fellow traveler , one which goes by the name of barry soetto/-baraque hussein obama, this fraud, to account as witnesses before GOD upon judgement day. in the event his people, as directed by the State Dept. do nothing in securing your release, or intervene on your behalf as a citizen of America, a son of Christ/God that if it comes to pass your life was forfitted at the expense of political correctness, in the case of your murder at the hands of his pals, the mullahs for the failure of your secured release from their captivity, we shall all scorn him to hell, where he begot his hatred under false pretences, claiming to be of a Christian himself, know ye that he is a liar, proven far too many times to ignor or deny, that he alone is responsible for your fate, and will have to answer before God for his deciets in the affairs of mandkind.
    Certain darkness will fill his soul as payment in kind for his black heart against God’s people, the Jews. It is instructed of us to pray for his wickedness, that he turn assunder/away/apart from the ways of the wicked, repent, and enter the light of the true path of salvation and we shall. We Pray almighty God, merciful protector of the rightious, loving father of all souls, a quick and painful release of his vassel/ soul to the gates of hell as soon as possible, for an eternity, amen.

    Going GALT, starve the beast of men, i.e. baraqu hussein obama of his rightful place upon humanity and his place in the historical records of a wise and noble God fearn’ man among men of this God ordained Nation, that he is deprived of such noble notions of a decent person, he is nothing of the sort, deserving nothing but our contempt and hatred of his black soul. May he and his hencemen/ladies rot in hell for an eternity.

  2. ‘Praying’ isnt going to do a damn thing for this man, dammit. How about calling Congress and the WH? Do you Christians ACTUALLY PRAY at night for this man, or just type a good talk? What a load of TRIPE! PRAY? Really?
    Sit by your bed and pray for him, since June, pray all you want to WHO?
    Get off your asses and do something, rather than simply talk shite!

  3. My thoughts and prayers to his family.

    Is it any wonder there are so many in so called “Islamic” states that convert to knowing Christ as their savior every day?

    I take comfort in knowing God is in control, however. Ultimately, even if they do take his life, they will fail, because he will be sent to meet his Lord and Savior.

    Still… if they kill him, it only furthers the position that the iranian regime is nothing more than a sophisticated band of murderers.

  4. Bless the Lord, Oh my soul, and ALL that is within me, Bless HIS Holy name! Let us exault His Holy name together.
    The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear Him. He hears you, and will deliver you from your fears.. The devil is a liar, and he is defeated.

    If this pastor is martyred, know that many have gone before, and many more will come after him. These are the times we live in. In America, this president is a muslim lover. So no help from him can be expected, BUT GOD!.

  5. Yes, Zahra Kazemi was the journalist covering the story of protesting students outside a prison in Tehran and they beat her viciously and raped and murdered her and she had concussion and lost consciousness and after she died, her son had one heck of a time trying to get her body back to give her a decent burial in Canada. I hope Clinton will act on this one and fast enough too. What a shame.

  6. Does he hold an American passport? It’s no good for toilet paper, but is it any good as a legal/political document?

    Remember Zahra Kazemi, she had an Iranian passport (unlucky for her) as well as Canadian, and was arrested on a trumped up charge, and raped, tortured and murdered (not necessarily in that order) by religious islamists (fucair). After a ‘show’ trial which Kafka, Joe Stalin and George Orwell could not top, no one was punished. In fact, they were probably promoted!
