Youcef Alive, Execution Remains

By Jordan Sekulow1330306683000

Our sources in Iran have confirmed to the ACLJ that Christian Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani is still alive as of earlier today.

We still believe that his execution has been ordered, but it is clear that renewed international pressure on Iran for Pastor Youcef’s release is having an impact.

It is this immense pressure that continues to keep Pastor Youcef alive.

In less than one week, more than 145,000 people have signed our petition calling for Pastor Youcef’s release. Congress is taking action scheduling a vote as early as Wednesday on H.Res. 556 condemning Iran and calling for Pastor Youcef’s immediate release.

Numerous human rights leaders, governmental officials, and international media from all across the globe have joined the effort for pastor Youcef’s release. The ACLJ’s Tweet for Youcef program is reaching nearly 750,000 Twitter accounts in over 86% of the world’s nations.

It is critical that we keep international pressure on Iran to spare this Christian pastor’s life. Please continue to pray and share his story, as we continue fighting to save his life.
