According to Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani's Iranian lawyer, the court delayed issuing a verdict and "has decided to ask the opinion of Mr. (Ali) Khamenei." Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei is an Islamic jurist and the final arbiter of questions of Shariah law.
Now that Iran's Supreme Leader will be considering the case, it is imperative that our top diplomat, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, personally intervenes in working for Pastor Youcef's unconditional release.We are hand-delivering this petition to Secretary Clinton the moment the State Department opens its doors tomorrow morning.
It is not too late to add your name to the list of over 127,000 people who have already signed this petition online. Pastor Youcef's life hangs in the balance. Sign the petition at www.aclj.org.
