Good day all. This is a bit different from the last few weeks. I’m delving into foreign policy. In this case, I’m going to talk about Pastor Saeed Abedini. He has been stuck in an Iranian jail for months, undergoing beatings simply because he is a Christian.
Now, the Iranians have sent his “case” to a judge who likes to order people hanged. Here are a few details from the Jerusalem Post:
The family of American-Iranian pastor Saeed Abedini released a letter from him on Thursday stating that Iranian authorities have threatened him with death because of his belief in Christianity.
“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,” he wrote in the letter.
“One day, there are intense pains after beatings in interrogations; the next day they are nice to you and offer you candy,” continued Abedini, who is imprisoned in a Tehran jail.
Pastor Abedini converted from Islam to Christianity. This is considered a capitol crime in the Islamic world. In their barbarian eyes, once a Muslim, always a Muslim…or else. So, what’s the response from the Obama regime? About what you might expect.
The US State Department expressed “serious concerns” about Abedini’s situation on Friday.
Considering the State Department has been sucking up to every Radical Islamic Fundamentalist out there for the last 4 years, this “concern” is typical. The correct response should have been, “You have 12 hours to put Pastor Saeed Abedini on a plane out of Iran or we start turning your outhouse of a country into a smoking crater.”
Sekulow and the ACLJ have urged the US government to intervene in the Abedini’s case. He told the Post that “after months of urging the US State Department to get involved in Pastor Saeed’s case, a State Department spokesperson on Friday addressed his plight publicly, acknowledging for the first time that it has ‘serious concerns’ about his fate. We are hopeful that this statement represents an important first step forward for the State Department toward securing Pastor Saeed’s freedom.”
“Pastor Saeed is a US citizen – an American imprisoned in Iran because of his religious beliefs. The State Department must do more – it must condemn his imprisonment and call on Iran to immediately release him. The world is watching. Time is of the essence,” the human rights activist continued.
You have a better chance of getting the SCoaMF, King Putz, to invite you to a round of golf. He doesn’t care since it doesn’t affect him.
The regime in Tehran has waged a campaign of imprisonments, executions and show trials against the Baha’i community since coming to power following the 1979 Islamic Revolution.
I have heard a rumor that once Hagel is sworn in as the new Secretary of Defense, Iran intends to send him an invitation to a front row seat for the hanging.
As much as I hate to say this, the good Pastor is toast. Obama has a long history of hanging Americans out to dry. This is just another reason he needs to be removed from office and prosecuted.
