Pastor Saeed Abedini Postcard Blitz

1415806840409

By Stoyan Zaimov, ChristianPost.com

A new initiative is encouraging supporters of Iranian-American pastor Saeed Abedini to purchase and send postcards to the White House to urge President Barack Obama to demand the release Abedini as part of the upcoming nuclear negotiations with Iran.

The prepared message to Obama on the postcards reads:

"A man in your position has been given great power and responsibility to represent every American, whether on domestic or foreign soil. Please hold to your own words, that no one is left behind. We, the American people, ask you to do everything within your power to bring U.S. citizen, pastor, husband & father, Saeed Abedini, home to his family from his time of incarceration in Iran.". . .

The American Center for Law and Justice, which represents Naghmeh Abedini and the couple's two young children, has pointed out that Obama's administration missed an opportunity previously to demand Saeed Abedini's release when economic sanctions were eased on Iran earlier this year.
