'...is convicted of turning his back on Islam, the greatest religion the prophesy of Mohammad at the age of 19. He has often participated in Christian worship and organized home church services, evangelizing and has been baptized and baptized others, converting Muslims to Christianity. He has been accused of breaking Islamic Law that from puberty (15 years according to Islamic law) until the age of 19 the year 1996, he was raised a Muslim in a Muslim home. During court trials, he denied the prophecy of Mohammad and the authority of Islam. He has stated that he is a Christian and no longer Muslim.'The Iranian authorities have tried to backtrack, claiming that Yousef Nadarkhani was actually sentenced to death for being one or more of these more Western 'liberal' friendly crimes: a "Zionist traitor", a "rapist", an "extortionist" and a "brothel owner". The truth is in Iran's Supreme Court ruling.
Meanwhile on planet BBC, the story attracts little coverage. Indeed searching for Nadarkhani on the BBC news website I found just this...
Why so shy BBC?
However that external link is an interesting one, it takes you to a Ted Nugent article for The Washington Times that really does not fit well with the BBC's view of Islam.
'In yet further proof that Iran is a country of insecure and intolerant voodoo extremists, as I wrote this, this there was a possibility a Christian pastor would be executed because he would not recant his Christian faith and embrace Islam in the land of Allah freaks.There's more in the article, do go and read it; but shh don't tell the BBC what they have linked to!
Convert to Islam or die is the mantra of many of the world’s Muslims. It’s anti-human.
That’s right. In 2011, you can be executed in Iran for professing a faith other than Islam, the so-called “religion of peace.” It may be a religion of peace, but the religious voodoo whack jobs who embrace the faith are an oppressive, cruel and violent lot. Their faith is so weak that they execute and persecute others who are not Muslims.
Having a law that allows for the execution of people of other faiths is but one of the reasons why the unstable extremists in charge in Iran or other voodoo countries should not be allowed to get their hands on nuclear weapons. I stand with Israel.
The United Nations probably won’t even issue a proclamation condemning Iran for having a death penalty for practicing a different faith. Should Iran execute Christian pastor Youcef Nadarkhani, the United Nations will barely issue a whimper. The U.N. is infested with evil, soulless, brain-dead voodoo freaks. The fact that we have anything to do with the U.N. is disgusting and anti-American.
The persecution of Christians in Muslim-dominated countries is a story not given enough ink by our left-wing lapdog media. Even Christian churches and Christian leaders have failed miserably at identifying and condemning the persecution of their fellow Christians in Muslim countries. Political correctness has muzzled too many Christians.
A quick search of the Internet reveals hundreds of instances of Muslims terrorizing and killing Christians and destroying their churches. And we are supposed to believe that Islam is the religion of peace. I think not. Go to jihadwatch.com and read about Islam, the religion of persecution, death and destruction.
The world should be outraged over what is transpiring in Iran and, for that matter, in other Middle Eastern countries where it is impossible to tell the difference between their religion and their politics, where people of a different faith are terrorized, where kangaroo court systems will not stand for real justice. These subhuman countries deserve the world’s ridicule and scorn.
Whether or not Iran executes, locks up or throws pastor Nadarkhani out of Iran is not the point. The point is that Iran and other Middle Eastern countries legally sanction executing and terrorizing others of different faiths. It just goes to show you how little mankind really has evolved in some parts of the world.'
