I guess Obama's letter or concern didn't arrive in time.

The pastor is in a better place than those mullahs will end up.

He fought the fight and kept the faith. His reward will be great in Heaven. Prayers for his family and friends.

Maybe Obama should apologize to the muzzies for folks being Christian...

That might help calm things down. /S

In “their” world, you are one of three: (1) A Muslim
(2) A slave to a Muslim (3) Dead

In Islam, there is no discussion of ideas, their ONLY interest is YOUR CONVERSION to THEIR IDEAS...........

According to whom? I’m not seeing this confirmed in any news source, conservative or otherwise. The only place I’ve seen this reported in is this blog:

I’ve been looking elsewhere for confirmation also, but haven’t found it. I’ve looked on Jay Sekulow’s website since they have been at the forefront on behalf of this pastor. No confirmation as of yet.

And when do the gloves come off ye Christian soldiers? These people have always hated our guts and will always hate our guts and no real method of persuasion, corruption, lies or political correctness will ever change that, ever. It is written in their koran, which they believe is the literal word of God, which cannot be changed. The Israelis know it, too. Islam and it’s followers are our sworn enemies in a bitter fight to the end, that has been ebbing and flowing for 1,400 hundred years. Religion of peace, a no bigger blasphemous lie, than mohammed was a prophet of God. He was a messenger from the devil himself, sent to destroy Judeo-Christian society. That is the truth that refuses to be recognized by fellow travelers of the mohammedans. There will never be peace with these misled, ignorant, hateful followers of mohammed; the sooner we fully understand that and contain them (or destroy them) we will survive. If not, they’re hell bent on destroying or subjugating or converting us, there is no middle ground with these so-called people. Are we willing to go all the way and survive,or....the clock is ticking and more of their ilk continue to grow in influence and immigration to the West. Time will tell.

Those who should be concerned are the rabid Moose. They will get a far “warmer” welcome to eternity than they imagined, unless they repent and believe on Christ. This pastor is not simply gone to heaven, he has a wonderful reward for not welshing on his faith in the face of death.

They hang a Christian for exercising his religion. And our judges say it is fine for a muzzie to beat up our people for walking in a parade dressed as Mohammed. Yeah those are are morally equivalent.

Screw CAIR. It may be about time for us to get down to their level.

There’s no way they can coexist with “liberal” (as in classic liberalism, not today’s left-wing liberalism) Western values.

This is not true. The report originated with an Arabic language website. The latest confirmed reports (as of March 2) indicate that he is alive and Iran is now saying they will not execute him.

This is from a Brazilian news source

Brazilian diplomacy intervines and Iranian authorities guarantee that Yousef Nadarkhani is alive

Maybe these Moose were testing the waters to see how the Christian West would react — and they are all wishing him bon voyage in heaven. Not the abject terror that the Moose expected out of the “infidel.”

If this is true, I agree.

The time for talk will be over and action should be taken.

What that action might be—————I don’t know but I have some thoughts.

The era of the Crusades was marked by political arrangements that the classic liberal West would not duplicate today. But somewhere these Moose have to be told stop or else. If they want to make their own countries into hell holes that is one matter. They can’t be allowed to make the West into another hell hole (although sometimes it seems the West is doing a good job of that all on its own).

With the CAIR tail wagging the dog in DC thats becoming less likely by the day.

Things like this are never considered when we decide who to allow in to the US and in what numbers and it will be our undoing, eventually.

The media will downplay this, if they mention it at all. I’m sure they already have orders from the Kremlin to bury the story. Won’t be too long before reporters who refuse to join King 0bama’s ‘Truth Team’ are hanged. Scary times ahead, folks.

Very similar attitude as the Left, as well as the attitude that the Individual is subservient to the Group and the Leadership.

No wonder they get along so well.

I hope there is a concerted effort to identify every one of his persecutors. At a minimum, they should be informed that they have been identified as complicit in murder, and that at any time in the future they may be personally arrested and tried for that crime. Which, depending on the nation in which they are tried, could result in their being given the death penalty.

However, if they can prove that they are not substantially involved in this murder, they should preserve that evidence in hope that they might receive a lesser charge, or even exoneration.

Hope and pray the Brazilian article reflects accurate and up to date info, however, the date of that Brazilian article is 3/2 and could be older than the date of the sourced article of this post (3/3). Comments at the Brazilian article question the authority and veracity of the statement as well.

A comment posted at this posts source link:

5.Ronnie James says: March 3, 2012 at 10:32 am .Apostasy Watch Last night a report was posted that Iranian Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani had been executed by Iran. The report was originally translated from an Arabic website. We have been unable to confirm this information through the US State Department or any western media. We will continue to monitor the situation. Please keep Nadarkhani and his family in your prayers

If anyone can locate the original Arabic or Persian source detailing otherwise, kindly post link. Thanks.
