ICC Note: Former hostage of the Iranian regime, Saeed Abedini is appealing to the United States to take action against the practice of mass prisoner execution in Iran. Pastor Abedini spent years in an Iranian prison that, every Wednesday, executes tens of prisoners, mostly serving timefor political and religious reasons. He has condemned this practice and condemned the Western world for ignoring it.
Iran (Christian Post):Iranian-American Pastor Saeed Abedini, formerly a hostage held in Iran, has condemned the continued mass executions of prisoners in the Islamic Republic, including Christians, and asked why the United States, the European Union and the U.N. are not doing anything to stop Iran.Abedini posted photos of recently executed prisoners in Iran on Facebook Monday, noting that one of the men put to death was a Christian by the name of Ali Asadi.
“Every Wednesday in Rajaeeshar prison [where] I was for more than two years, [the] Islamic Republic of Iran executes tens of people by hanging them,” Abedini wrote.”The saddest part of [this] horrible story is U.N., EU and U.S. don’t have any active plan to STOP [these] executions,” he added, noting that Western leaders regularly shake the hands of Iranian representatives at conferences and continue giving them money, yet know all about the systematic executions that have been going on for years.
Abedini, who spent three and a half years in an Iranian prison for his Christian faith before being released in January,said thatthe Iranian government might have killed Asadi’s body, but vowed that his soul and spirit are “alive forever.”He added that there are a number of prisoners in Iran who decide to become Christians and change their lives around, but all of them are now in great danger because of their decision.
“We need to PRAY for all of them” and for the Iranian regime to change its behavior toward its people and toward Christians, he added.The pastor argued that “we need to do something about it NOW, tomorrow is too late,” when it comes to speaking out for the human rights of prisoners.…
