Pastor Saeed Abedini is an American citizen; a Christian who has been seized by Iran’s Revolutionary Guard and is being held in the notorious Evin Prison. Abedini is a former leader of Iran’s house-church movement – and is being abused in Iran simply because of his faith. Iran refuses to release him.
The American Center of Law & Justice (ACLJ) has launched an international campaign to free Abedini, and is calling on all people of the world to join in mobilizing for religious freedoms. Sign the ACLJ petition to urge the President & State Department to stand up for an American in danger. Sign the petition at: http://aclj.org/iran/save-
To: President Obama, the Secretary of State, and the United States Congress
Iran’s radical and violent jihadist regime is persecuting an American pastor for exercising his fundamental right to religious freedom. The United States cannot tolerate such assaults on its own citizens. Take all available diplomatic and legislative action to pressure Iran to respect religious freedom and release Pastor Saeed.
Simply put, Iran cannot be permitted to imprison and abuse American citizens.
