Time to Demand Saeed’s Freedom

By Jordan Sekulow1416843668858

News is breaking this morning that the deadline for nuclear negotiations with Iran has been extended until next June.

This is a critical decision for American Pastor Saeed who continues to suffer in an Iranian prison for his Christian faith.

First, Pastor Saeed was not completely abandoned.  The American people were heard and Iran was not rewarded with a nuclear deal while it continues to imprison and torment a U.S. citizen.  Yet Pastor Saeed is not free.

Second, the reports indicate that there will be no lull in the negotiations; they will continue as soon as next month.  That means now continues to be a critical time to pressure Iran to release Pastor Saeed.

We can’t trust Iran as it violates Pastor Saeed’s human rights.  President Obama and Secretary of State Kerry must use this new extension of time to demand Pastor Saeed’s freedom.

The U.S. and Iran continue to be seated at the same table.  This represents the most dialogue our nation has had with Iran in 35 years.  We cannot squander this opportunity to directly demand Pastor Saeed’s freedom.

In just the last week, over 150,000 people have signed our petition demanding no deal without Pastor Saeed’s freedom at BeHeardProject.com.

We are continuing to work in Congress to pressure this Administration to demand Pastor Saeed’s immediate release and are continuing to meet with world leaders, urging increased international pressure on Iran.

Please continue to pray and sign the petition.
