Iran to hang Christian ‘convert’ for apostasy – Barbados supports Iranian human rights violations

There is no freedom of religion or thought under Islam

When asked to “repent” by the judges, Youcef stated, “Repent means to return. What should I return to? To the blasphemy that I had before my faith in Christ?” The judges replied , “To the religion of your ancestors, Islam.” To which he replied, “I cannot.”

… Pastor Yousef Nadarkhani to the Muslim court

Iran can always count on the support of Barbados at the United Nations

“After all its public support over the years for Iran’s evil acts, how can Barbados now criticize the Islamic despots for more of the same?”

Youcef Nadarkhani was born to Muslim parents in Iran, but he never practiced or adopted the Muslim faith. At 19 years old he became a Christian, and later he became a Christian pastor.

That makes him apostate under Islam, and subject to death according to the Koran. Pastor Nadarkhani might well be already executed by the time you read this, or the Iranian barbarians might have ‘annulled’ the sentence due to worldwide pressure in this one case.

The annulment of one death sentence doesn’t change reality though, and the reality is this…

This persecution and trampling of human rights happens all the time in Muslim majority countries around the world. Whether killed by the state or by wild mobs of Muslims – Christians and other infidels are murdered daily by Muslims seeking to impose their ideology, social values and legal system upon the world.

Where is the outcry from so-called ‘moderate’ Muslims over the ongoing murders of non-Muslims to impose Islam? Where was the outcry from vast numbers of ‘moderate’ Muslims when Christian schoolgirls were beheaded as Ramadan trophies in Indonesia and more recently in the Philippines? When hundreds of Christians were hacked to death in Nigeria? Where is the horror of ‘moderate’ Muslims that 100,000 Copt Christians have fled Egypt since “Egyptian Spring”?

Where is the outrage when Muslim mobs burn Christian churches, Buddhist temples and Jewish synagogues throughout the world and Muslim governments deny freedom of religion?

Where is the diplomatic and community outrage in Barbados?

Barbados has a shameful voting record at the United Nations when it comes to human rights. We actually make a habit of siding with evil at the UN. We don’t want to offend any country that might toss a few coins our way.

Barbados loves Iran and we don’t care if they hang 15 year old girls for having sex outside of marriage, hang teenagers for gay sex, or imprison, torture and kill non-Muslims for their religion or stone women to death for adultery. We “abstained” from a UN vote citing Iran for human rights abuses, torture, discrimination and violence against women and then voted to protect Iran from UN sanctions.

After all its public support over the years for Iran’s evil acts, how can Barbados now criticize the Islamic despots for more of the same?

  1. Arab Fall?

    one can only hope!

    It would be a lot cheaper for the western world to train some young Iranian men and women who believe in basic freedoms and who wish to go back and liberate Iran from its despotic religious dictatorship rather than wait, unprepared, as in Libya, for liberators to be massacred holding pee shooters with no organization.

  2. The Watcher!

    We can solve the problem(s) we “see” in Islamic societies very easily by imposing harsh and un-usually cruel sentences on them when they contravene our Western laws in much the same way. If its illegal to be a Christian in Islamic lands, then it will also be illegal to be a Muslim in Western /Christian lands.
    Fair is fair isn’t it?

  3. rasta man

    @Watcher: Sounds good but do not hold your breath. The Muslims have all the rights in the country.

    WAR in the EAST , War in The West ! War down Sally , War up north ..!!! BOB Marley ‘simply put!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. J. Payne

    You want Barbados to get involved in that and then they start sending terrorists over this side? I suppose another VAT raise to pay for even tighter security would be to your liking too?

  6. PBUH

    The Koran makes it clear that apostates are to be killed. Muslim scholars have debates as to whether the apostate should be given 1, 3, or 100 chances to recant and return to the faith, but the concept of death for apostates is well founded in Sharia law.

  7. M7

    Iran recently said he is guilty of rape. This was never mentioned before as a charge. This means they will execute him but officially it will be for rape, not for being Christian but it is really that he is a Christian why they kill him. Understand?

  8. Leprechaun

    The Bible promotes the same filth.

    Kill Followers of Other Religions.

    1) If your own full brother, or your son or daughter, or your beloved wife, or you intimate friend, entices you secretly to serve other gods, whom you and your fathers have not known, gods of any other nations, near at hand or far away, from one end of the earth to the other: do not yield to him or listen to him, nor look with pity upon him, to spare or shield him, but kill him. Your hand shall be the first raised to slay him; the rest of the people shall join in with you. You shall stone him to death, because he sought to lead you astray from the Lord, your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, that place of slavery. And all Israel, hearing of this, shall fear and never do such evil as this in your midst. (Deuteronomy 13:7-12 NAB)

    2) Suppose a man or woman among you, in one of your towns that the LORD your God is giving you, has done evil in the sight of the LORD your God and has violated the covenant by serving other gods or by worshiping the sun, the moon, or any of the forces of heaven, which I have strictly forbidden. When you hear about it, investigate the matter thoroughly. If it is true that this detestable thing has been done in Israel, then that man or woman must be taken to the gates of the town and stoned to death. (Deuteronomy 17:2-5 NLT)

  9. just want to know

    Leprechaun have you ever read the one in the gospels where the woman was taken into adultery and brought before Jesus, He said, if any of you are without sin, cast the first stone. No one could because they knew they themselves were the culprits. Jesus told her after no one could cast the first stone go and sin no more.
