Latest Saeed Abedini Items
How is it possible that we're willing to pay the price of returning monsters like the "Taliban Five" to secure a military deserter, but we use no leverage for Pastor Saeed Abedini when we had it?
After being treated for two months in a hospital for injuries suffered from beatings during his imprisonment, Saeed Abedini – a Christian pastor and American citizen – is being returned to Iran's Rajai Shahr prison.
American Pastor Saeed Abedini is serving an eight-year prison sentence for proselytizing his Christian faith in the Islamic Republic of Iran, but that plight didn't stop him from penning a powerful Easter message from his hospital bed on Sunday.
President Obama prayed publicly Thursday for the release of two Americans held separately by North Korea and Iran, and said religious freedom “is under threat” around the world.
President Obama emphasized global religious freedom in remarks at the 2014 National Prayer Breakfast, while the head of the U.S. Agency for International Development stressed a social welfare message based on a New Testament passage.
In 1979, Americans were outraged as Iran took our citizens hostage at the U.S. Embassy in Tehran. For more than a year, daily news broadcasts reported on the crisis as our internationally weakened leadership ineptly stumbled through the ordeal. It was common to see yellow ribbons tied on trees as a symbol of our desire for the safe return of our citizens.
Hasan Rouhani, Iran's new president, made his debut on the world stage at the U.N. General Assembly on Tuesday, calling for "a framework for managing our differences." He didn't offer the olive branch President Obama wanted. If Tehran is genuinely interested in improving relations with the United States and the West, Mr. Rouhani and the ruling mullahs could prove it with a small gesture. He could free a Christian pastor who on Thursday marks his first anniversary as a political prisoner in Tehran's notoriously evil Evin Prison.
An appeals court in Iran has reaffirmed the conviction and eight-year sentence of an American Christian pastor, his wife and supporters said Monday.
A Republican lawmaker expressed shock that State Department officials dodged a Friday hearing to discuss the ongoing saga of imprisoned American pastor Saeed Abedini.
