Americans Support for Pastor Youcef Overwhelming

Liberty Alerts, American Center for Law and Justice

Today, we are hand-delivering a petition directly to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on behalf of over 156,000 Americans, urging Secretary Clinton to engage Iran at the highest levels to secure Christian Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani’s release.

We are also asking Secretary Clinton to work with the United Nations, the Organization of the Islamic Conference, and other foreign leaders to ensure that this ultimate human rights abuse – the execution of a man for his faith – is not carried out.

Now that Iran’s Supreme Leader, the Ayatollah Khamenei, will decide whether Pastor Youcef lives or dies, it is critical that America take the lead in preventing this atrocity.

As more than 150,000 Americans are telling Secretary Clinton: “As other world leaders denounce Iran’s condemning this man to death just for being a Christian, it is critical that America – the land of liberty – take a stand and pressure Iran to release Pastor Youcef.”

Because of your support this number of signatures continues to grow by the minute, and we have informed Secretary Clinton that she can expect the outcry of Americans to continue to increase until she takes direct action to call for Pastor Youcef’s release.

Please continue to add your name to this critical petition today.

In addition to the ACLJ’s petition, over forty Members of Congress are sending a letter to Secretary Clinton urging her to engage Iran to save the life of Pastor Youcef, and more and more Representatives are signing on to this letter every day. Please continue to contact your Representatives and encourage them to join this bipartisan letter today.

Your voice is being heard by the State Department, Congress, the international media, the United Nations, and most importantly by Iran’s leaders. Please continue to share these updates and pray for Pastor Youcef.
