Iran, Get a Grip-!

Okay, Iran, it’s really time to grow up.  Grow. up.  Get a grip.  Change from the lunatic path on which you are set, sentencing an Iranian Christian pastor to death.

This form of militant Islam is getting your people nowhere:  any mention of Jewish or Christian beliefs, experiences, or viewpoints in the world, much less among his own people makes the Iranian leader nuts, absolutely and totally nuts.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s position of Holocaust denial is wrong, particularly when he parades such beliefs before the United Nations. United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said, “Denying historical facts, especially on such an important subject as the Holocaust, is just not acceptable. Nor is it acceptable to call for the elimination of any State or people. I would like to see this fundamental principle respected both in rhetoric and in practice by all the members of the international community. United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan himself visited Iran and had a series of dialogues with the Iranian leadership and other senior-level people. Wherever and when, and if the situation requires me to do, I am also prepared to engage in dialogue with the Iranian leadership.”

At the same United Nations, he has publicly stated that the 9/11 attacks were orchestrated by the United States, at which point the U.S. delegation exited in protest.  Good for them.

The leader has also stated numerous times that Israel needs to be wiped off the face of the earth, and is developing the nuclear capabilities to do just that.  It would not be surprising if Israel needed to take care of that threat sometime in the next year.

Now Ahmadinejad is going into overdrive yet again, with his regime sentencing a Christian pastor to death.  Held for two years in jail, Pastor Yousef Nadarkhani’s crime?  His failure to convert to Islam.  The 34-year-old was born to Muslim parents and turned to Christianity at the age of 19.  The married father of two protested when his two sons were taught Islamic teachings in their Iranian public school.  He was arrested, tried, and found guilty of apostasy.

On February 22, Iranian courts issued an execution order for the Iranian pastor because he would not recant (renounce) his faith in Jesus.

This is sick and an affront to all people of faith worldwide.  Unless this death sentence is immediately revoked, I believe it’s time for our Secretary of State to call Ahmadinejad persona non grata in America, and bar him from every entering our nation again.

Pastor Nadarkhani, you, your wife Fatema, and sons Daniel and Yoel are in our hearts and prayers.

Contact the US White House and Secretary of State Clinton as soon as possible to speak out against this human rights abuse:  www.whitehouse.gov/contact and www.state.gov/ and go to “E-mail a question/ comment”.  Let your voice be heard.

    We heard Franklin Graham talking about this pastor Thursday night. Both my husband and I stopped to pray for him, as well as all the other Christians under threat of death because of their faith. I’ve also been listening very intently to what Israel may do with all this information coming out of Iran. Wild! BUT… so glad that I have been “adopted” by my Heavenly Father, and none of this is taking Him by surprise. Sure is wonderful to have that Peace when the world seems to be spinning out of control.

      I feel bad that Israel has to do the clean-up work for the rest of the world, but they understand the threat and that it’s not going to go away if we all try to play nice…. Here our country is apologizing for burning Korans that were issued by OUR Armed Forces for Muslims taken into custody… and then discovered that they were passing terror instructions from prisoner to prisoner by writing inside them… while we don’t officially speak out about a man, a human being, a LIFE, being killed for his faith. Why is one faith more important? Since when is a book more precious than a life? Thank you for praying, Phyllis.
