The American Center for Law and Justice, focusing on constitutional and international law, said today it has received information that Iran may have issued an execution order for Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani, who was sentenced to death because he refused to recant his Christian faith. The ACLJ is working to determine whether Pastor Youcef is still alive.
"As of today, we cannot confirm that Pastor Youcef is alive," said Jordan Sekulow, Executive Director of the ACLJ. "The news out of Iran is not encouraging. With Iran now dominating international headlines because of its military actions, it's clear Iran may have decided to move forward by issuing an execution order, knowing that the world's attention is focused elsewhere right now. We also know that Iran's top officials can reject the execution order and release Pastor Youcef if they so desire. We will keep the international pressure on Iran to free Pastor Youcef."
It is still unclear at the present time whether Pastor Youcef would have a right of appeal from the execution order. The head of Iran's Judiciary Chief, Ayatollah Sadegh Larijani, must approve publicly held executions, but only a small percentage of executions are carried out in public. Most executions in Iran are conducted in secret.

Obama’s silence is deafening. No MSM questioning why Obama isn’t opening his mouth - err, except to sing along with Mick Jagger.
No black pastors opening their mouths questioning why Obama isn’t saying anything as a “Christian”. JD Jakes? Where are these guys?
Franklin Graham, I applaud you.
Too many social justice libs have used Romans to say, “God put Obama in place, so we have to obey him”.
The 0bama0’s refusal to express outrage at such barbarity on the part of its Mohammedan clientele reveals it to be a Revelation 13 government, NOT a Romans 13 government.
The Romans 13 government punishes the evildoer and rewards them that do good.
The Revelation 13 government is an agent of Satan.
Santorum is right.
May God sweep him into office and sweep the refuse that 0ccupies our government into the trashbin of history, where it so rightfully belongs.
