Report: Iranian Regime Hangs Christian Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani (Update – Unconfirmed)

Christian pastor Youcef Nadarkhani with his wife, Fatema Pasindedih, and his two sons, Daniel, age 9, and Yoel, age 7. (Christian Post)

Free Republic reported:

Youcef Nadarkhani has been executed in Iran. He is the Christian pastor who has been imprisoned and found guilty by the courts in Iran of being a Christian. Now he’s been executed in spite of international appeals to spare his life. He was hanged today.

UPDATE: I made a few calls to Iranian activists and friends but so far no one can confirm this report.

UPDATE: There is no evidence that Nadarkhani was executed. Please continue your prayers for his release.

    I pray for his family.

    Now, my thoughts. LaHood son is coming home. Where was Obama on this. He is a disgrace and I am sure he will be voted out of office. If not I don’t know my fellow Americans.

    Youcef Nadarkhani – modern day martyr. May God be with his family.

    Very Sad.

    CAIR, will you accusing Iran of Christianaphobia? Nah, too busy calling Americans racists.

    May God be with his family during these trying times. Seems weird to think that a Koran is burned and people die…because we do not respect the Islamic faith? Yet, one of another faith is executed? Hmm,

    will the Left continue to teach tolerance of a faith that has NO tolerance?

    The Navy needs to dust off their Crusaders.

    Executed for preaching “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and soul and mind, and love thy neighbor as thyself.”

    SO, they admit by their actions they are afraid of this.

    Would not want to be Iran. God is not mocked. There was a fourth man in the furnace and that same ONE is saving up HIS wrath for Iran. He will Seal Team Six look like Cirque du Soleil.

    The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want.
    He makes me to lie down in green pastures,
    he leads me beside still waters,
    he restores my soul.
    He guides me in paths of righteousnes
    for his name’s sake.
    Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of
    I will fear no evil,
    for you are with me;
    your rod and staff
    they comfort me.
    You prepare a table before me
    in the presence of my enemies.
    You annoint my head with oil;
    my cup overflows.
    Surely goodness and love will
    follow me
    all the days of my life,
    ad I will dwell in the house of the LORD

    Psalm 23

    This is a barbaric action and these islamic savages are not civilized people.

    The moslem culture is a primitive one. As such they should not possess nuclear weapons.

    They can only develop nuclear weapons by purchasing the components from other societies and assembling the various devices. This is not the same as inventing and constructing the devices needed to develop nuclear technology, which requires an advanced society with industrial capabilities. Such societies also possess at least some degree of higher culture, which general intellectual atmosphere also facilitates other advanced types of developments, including social. We see no evidence of this in any moslem society, including Pakistan, which should not have been allowed to have nuclear technologies.

    It is for this reason that these lesser cultures, and yes they are indeed lesser cultures, should not have nuclear technologies.
