Youcef’s Death Order
Jordan Sekulow’s sources have led him to believe the execution order has been given for Youcef Nadarkhani, the Iranian Pastor that left Islam for Christianity. In fact if you have not been following the news about Pastor Youcef, he has an execution sentence merely for converting to Christianity. Leaving Islam is a capital crime in most Islamic nations including Twelver-Shias in Iran.

Our sources in Iran believe Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani’s execution order has been issued. He is still alive, but his death is imminent unless the Supreme Leader of Iran intervenes.
Our aggressive international efforts to secure the release of this persecuted pastor continue to grow. The White House and U.S. State Department have now condemned Iran and joined the call for his release.
In just four days, more than 100,000 people have signed the ACLJ’s Petition to Free Christian Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani. If you have already signed, thank you.

It is critically urgent that we keep Pastor Youcef’s story in the international media to pressure Iran for his immediate release.
The ACLJ has helped spread the news about Pastor Youcef’s execution order across the world, including major print and television media as far away as Brazil and Australia.
Our Tweet for Youcef campaign is growing dramatically, reaching over 600,000 Twitter accounts each day on Pastor Youcef’s behalf.
It is critically important that we urge Congress and the United Nations to call for Pastor Youcef’s release while there is still time. Take action now.
