There just might be a glimmer of hope for Pastor Saeed, the American pastor imprisoned in Iran.
Iran’s foreign minister, speaking to CNN about Pastor Saeed, said, “We have various clemency measures in Iran that can be introduced, happened in the past, can be introduced again in these cases.”
Let’s take Iran’s foreign minister at his word. Let’s ask for clemency for Pastor Saeed.
President Rouhani and Foreign Minister Zarif,
We urge you to introduce in Iranian court a request for clemency for Pastor Saeed Abedini. He is no threat to Iran and merely wishes to return home to his wife and young children in the United States. This humanitarian gesture will be deeply appreciated by the American people.
Because of your support, we have taken Pastor Saeed's case to the U.N., White House, and Congress. Your support makes his defense possible.
