Sign the Saeed Petition


Today I received this email and am going to share it verbatim:

Pastor Saeed’s life is in grave danger.

Yesterday, he was transferred to another Iranian prison – a deadly cellblock in one of Iran’s most dangerous and obscure prisons.

He is no longer sharing a cell with political prisoners but with murderers. Rajai Shahr Prison is where prisoners are sent to disappear – many are murdered at the hands of other prisoners.

President Obama, who has already spoken to the President of Iran about Pastor Saeed, must take immediate diplomatic action to save Saeed’s life. Time is of the essence.

Join our urgent new effort to urge President Obama to take decisive action. There is no more critical time than now.

Sign our New Petition: Immediately Intervene to Save Saeed.

Jay Sekulow
ACLJ Chief Counsel

P.S. Please earnestly pray and share this critical message. A U.S. citizen’s life hangs in the balance. 

Evidently Senator Rand Paul co-sponsored a Senate resolution calling for Saeed’s release. This is from the Facebook page Pray for Pastor Saeed Abedini.

If you are unfamiliar with Saeed’s story, see Iran: Free Saeed Abedini! He is originally from Iran, became an American citizen, went back to Iran to do humanitarian work, and was unjustly imprisoned and tortured for being a Christian. His wife and children wait at home for him in Idaho.

The way Saeed is being treated testifies to the evil that exists in the Iranian government. This is a human rights violation and an unlawful detention of an American citizen. While there are a great many Iranians who value freedom and life, including many who have moved to this country, their government is merciless and two-faced, slowly killing Saeed and other prisoners while asking the world to support their supposed commitment to controlling nuclear weapons.

If you believe in human rights, value freedom, and love America, please, speak up for Saeed, because what you do in this life, as the saying goes, will echo in eternity. To our brothers and sisters in Christ inside Iran, we love you! Please don’t ever forget that there are many Americans who are praying for you.

یهوه‌ تو را بركت‌ دهد و تو را محافظت‌ نماید.
یهوه‌ روی‌ خود را بر تو تابان‌ سازد و بر تو رحمت‌ كند.
یهوه‌ روی‌ خود را بر تو برافرازد و تو را سلامتی‌ بخشد.


In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends. -Martin Luther King Jr.
