Last week the U.S. State Department, through the U.S. Mission in Geneva, raised American Pastor Saeed Abedini’s case at the United Nations.

Ambassador Keith Harper, the U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Human Rights Council, delivered a statement calling for Pastor Saeed's release (seen above).

Ambassador Harper directly called on Iran to “uphold its religious freedom obligations and release those imprisoned for their religious beliefs, such as Pastor Saeed Abedini, and protect the rights of all individuals to manifest their religious beliefs.”

We are grateful that Ambassador Harper and the State Department used this opportunity to once again call on Iran to immediately release Pastor Saeed whose only “crime” is his Christian faith.

It’s time for Pastor Saeed – a U.S. citizen – to come home to his wife and two young children here in America.

We continue to urge the Obama Administration and the State Department to use every opportunity and every avenue to secure this innocent U.S. citizen’s release.

Now, especially in light of the looming November 24th nuclear negotiation deadline with Iran, it is more important than ever that the U.S. government exercise every means at its disposal to bring Pastor Saeed home.

As we continue fighting for Pastor Saeed’s freedom, please continue to pray.  Pastor Saeed still sufferers from intense stomach pain, the result of injuries he has received from multiple prison beatings during his two years of wrongful incarceration in some of the worst prisons in Iran.

Pastor Saeed is not forgotten.  Over 307,000 people have signed the petition for his release at BeHeardProject.com.  Please sign the petition and be heard for Pastor Saeed.
