Iran jails lawyer who defended Christian pastor on death row

No freedom compulsion in Islam. And silence from U.S. media and politicians. via Iran now jails pastor’s lawyer | Greeley Gazette.

The government of Iran appears to be doubling down in the case of a pastor facing the death sentence for leaving the Islamic faith by now arresting his attorney.

The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), which has been working to secure the release of Christian Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani, today called Iran’s decision to imprison Pastor Youcef’s attorney, Mohammad Ali Dadkhah, “very troubling.”

Dadkah told news organizations that government officials had informed him he had been convicted of acting against national security and spreading propaganda against the regime and could expect to be jailed soon.

“The news that this renowned human rights attorney has been sentenced to prison by Iranian officials is very troubling,” said Jordan Sekulow, Executive Director of the ACLJ. “This development only reinforces the fact that Iran has no regard for basic human rights. It also raises further concern about the fate of Pastor Youcef. With his attorney facing nine years in prison, and no other lawyer likely to take the case, Pastor Youcef has no legal advocate, which places him at greater risk.”

The decision by Iran to arrest Nadarkhani’s attorney comes amidst intense international pressure to free the pastor. Their actions towards Nadarkhani mirror those it shows towards the rest of the world in regards to its nuclear program.

Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani caught the attention of the world after being convicted for leaving the Islamic faith, even though he says he has never been a Muslim. Nardarkhani, who is facing a possible death sentence, has been caught in a catch 22 regarding Muslim teaching.

While Nadarkhani tells the world that he was never a Muslim that statement is contrary to Muslim teaching. According to Islam, everyone is born a Muslim. Thus, Nadarkhani or for that matter, any person who becomes a Christian or follows any other religion has “left Islam.”

On page 28, in the introduction of a copy of the Qur’an, printed by Ansariyan Publications in the Islamic Republic of Iran, the translator, M.H. Shakir in the section “Islam and Muslims” states, “In fact, every child that is born is a Muslim. It is the parents who make him a Jew, Christian or Hindu.”

Based on this teaching, even if Nadarkhani had never visited a mosque a day in his life he is still considered a Muslim. Therefore, when he accepted Christ as his savior and became a Christian he left the Muslim faith whether he knew it or not.

How many Muslims would there really be in the world if Islam didn’t dictate death for those who choose to leave?

  1. The way to abolish Shariah Law in the USA is to BAN Islam from being identified as a legitimate religion with constitutional protections as such.  Islam is a socio-political organization that poses as a religion and should be totally outlawed and banned in the USA.  There are plenty of countries that allow this barbaric system.  Those who practice it should stay there, and those who choose to convert should go to a Muslim country to Convert.  Enough of this insanity.  Would we allow a religion called Nazism to Exist where it’s adherents called for the Death to the USA and Death To Jews and Other Ethnic Groups.  Of course we would not.  Well, the so-called religion of Islam calls for the Death To the USA, Death TO Jews and in fact, Death To Anybody Who Refuses To Submit to Allah!!!  Wake Up America, Islam is no religion, in spite of what your Secular Humanist Catholics, The POTUS, Your Secular Humanist Episcopalians and others might tell you.

  2. A real life story witnessed first hand today, Tuesday, 06 March 2012. I was on my way from home and like I do many days, I stopped at the little convenience store closest to my home which is on the way, to pick up cigarettes, milk, etc. I… have long known that the owner of the little store, a convenience store, was from India, and had always assumed he was Hindu. This gentleman also owns several other convenience stores and also a truck stop. Each time I stop into this mans store, if he is working, he always has on a conservative talk radio show in the background. I have never engaged in political speech with this guy, just assuming he was a grateful immigrant living the American Dream and making big bucks in a Free Society and I assumed he was a conservative American, and likely of the Hindu Faith. Today. when I stopped in, he was listening to a conservative talk radio show and they were speaking of the primaries going on today, and I mentioned that I was a Newt Gingrich supporter. He said, “Newt Gingrich does not have a chance.” He went on to say that “the USA and the world is going to be dominated by Islam and Muslims because that was God’s Plan.” I then asked this: “Where did you say you are from?” He answered, “from India, but I am a Muslim.” I said, I thought that most Indians were Hindu.” He said, “Yes, but it was supposed to be Muslim and that is why we now have Pakistan.” Of course, as a history major in college at Auburn University, I knew of the Muslim-Hindu Split in India that created the so-called state and nation of Pakistan. This Muslim Businessman told me that it was “God’s Plan to take over the world, and it was just a matter of time.” I walked out of that store and said, :”You just got your last dime from me, and that I would stand by my earlier observations that there is no such thing as a moderate Muslim.” They have long-range plans, and that plan is world domination, and worse, they truly believe it is destiny as per God’s Plan. If this does not awaken you, then you are already brain dead. Think about this the next time you visit your local convenience store or motel run by Muslims. If you support them with your business, you are financing your won destruction and the destruction or your country.

  3. I guess that leaves the door wide open for us to arrest any muslim here for practicing there faith in America.
    AND START by tearing down all there Mosques we have let them build.

  5. Hire the Israelis to go in and clean that place up. Conscript all the muzzies in America and send them to fight in Iran as well. If they won’t fight, those Iranians will certainly shoot at them.

  6. Our military involvement with islamic regimes is totally unconstitutional .Our soldiers are dying for nothing and our tax dollars wasted by corruption and yet from Kosovo, Somalia, Kuwait,Iraq and Afghanistan millions of refugees invaded our country to wage their stupid jihad from within. If we dont stop this now America willbe an islamic shit hole soon. Our immigration policies must be reviewed and reversed. Meanwhile lets burn another Koran as a protest against islamic terror .

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
