SHACKLED PASTOR SAEED ABEDINI WAS TASER’D BY INTELLIGENCE OFFICIALS WHEN THEY INTERROGATED HIM OVER NEW BOGUS CHARGES.
Yet a few days later at the UN in New York, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani hinted at a ‘prisoner swap’ for Saeed and other Christians imprisoned in his jails.
YOU WOULD THINK that the opinion of one million people would matter to a USA President – but it seems not in the case of Barack Obama.
While the President reportedly enjoyed a rare ‘father-daughter’ time with his daughters Malia and Sasha, all smiles following the Iranian nuclear deal – thousands of miles away American Pastor Saeed Abedini sat in his jail cell in Rajai Shahr Prison in Karaj, oceans away from his own children, waiting for the next violent blow.
A COUNTRY credited with being the world’s chief sponsor of terror, and which has consistently called for the destruction of Israel, has been given the go-ahead to generate nuclear energy following an international agreement, sparking fears of a global threat to peace.

As the prophet Isaiah said, the morning is coming – but first there must be night…This is an impassioned plea for the Church to arise and pray…
HAVE YOU EVER had a sleepless night when you keep looking at the clock and wondering how much longer it will be before you see daylight?
If you have ever sat with a sick person through the night and longed for the morning you will understand a message given by the prophet Isaiah (Isaiah 21.11–12). He lived in a day before clocks and watches so he describes a man calling out to the watchman patrolling the streets.
The re-election of Binyamin Netanyahu in the Israeli General Election was a blow to President Obama who had sent his senior political team to Israel to try to influence the electors to reject their Prime Minister. Why this Obama drama?
THE PLAIN FACT IS THAT OBAMA WANTS TO SOLVE THE ISRAELI/PALESTINIAN PROBLEM IN HIS FINAL 18 MONTHS IN THE WHITE HOUSE SO THAT HIS LEGACY IN HISTORY IS SECURED.
He wants to achieve this at any cost to Israel and he sees Netanyahu as his chief opponent.

“Mr President, can you get my dad home by my birthday?”
“Jacob, it’ll be hard but I’m going to try.”
This was the conversation between the son of imprisoned Pastor Saeed Abedini and President Obama in January, after his mother Naghmeh fasted and prayed for the chance to meet the president when he paid a whirlwind visit to her town in Idaho.

It is not safe, currently, to convert from Islam to Christianity, especially if you live in Iran. Nor can you expect a warm welcome in Britain. Chris Eyte hears how one man has provided spiritual refuge for his fleeing countrymen
IF YOU MET MOHAMMED you would never guess the painful ordeal he has recently experienced. He just looks like a regular guy from the Middle East who is now living in East Sussex.
