The International Religious Liberty Association has joined more than a dozen religious groups and human rights advocates calling for the release of American pastor Saeed Abedini, who was imprisoned in Iran in September for his religious beliefs.
Abedini, who periodically traveled to his native Iran to establish and manage an orphanage, was arrested and convicted of endangering national security. The Christian Post last week reported that Abedini -- a member of a non-denominational Christian church -- was helping Christians in underground churches. He is now being tortured and forced to recant his Christian faith, the Post reported. . . .

Iran lied about the 2015 nuclear deal and has been lying about its nuclear program, and that is very dangerous. It’s time to fix the nuclear deal or get out. Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu just held a press conference to confirm what we’ve been telling you for years. Obama’s Iran Deal...
