Levin: Where’s the media on Iranian pastor being put to death for apostasy?

Levin wonders why the media isn’t covering this outrageous decision of the Iranian government to put to death Youcef Nadarkhani, a Christian Pastor in Iran, for apostasy of Islam. As we know from last month, the Iranian government has tried to get Nadarkhani to recant his Christian faith and submit to Islam, but he resists and Iran has now issued a death sentence.

    The media IS covering the story..RIGHT here at Scoop. That’s what brings me back over and over.

    Thanks Scoop

    • Hey Right Scoop: You are the “media” now. We don’t and will never trust the lame street, cover up, corrupt media again. Basically the 5th Estate is DEAD. We appreciate hearing the truth and exposing what is being done behind our backs.


    ISLAM = EVIL = ENEMY .(period)

    • I was going to say pedophilia, murder, and much more, but EVIL covered it so I digress. Great point and a lot less typing than my follow up.

      • las1

        EVIL! How Santorum of us! Shh! Must not use the word evil or Satan.

        Meanwhile… Obama and his extremist leftist enablers mum on Pastor Nadarkhani because Obama is too busy apologizing (yet again!) for burnt Korans in Afghanistan. Oh well… only two American soldiers killed… small price to pay on top of the apology.

  • Maxsteele

    The hypocrisy is unbelievable in our MSM and in the Obama administration. The media is chock full of stories about our troops burning the Koran and how much we have upset the sensitivities of the muslims because of it. We burn the Koran and have to grovel for forgiveness but they burn down churches and synagogues, kill Christians and Jews but you have to search the internet for the story.
    Mark Levin at Jihad Watch has been covering this story since his arrest.
    Thank goodness for truth tellers like you at TRS.
    The muslim 5th column here in North America has repeatedly denied that Islam has the death penalty for converting out of Islam.
    I hope people wake up to the truth soon otherwise we are all in it knee deep. We believe Iran does not mean what it says with regards to destroying Israel and the US while they kill their own people for changing religions??? Are we insane?

  • Trust1TG

    Mark Levin is my favorite.

    I wrote to my Congressman about this a couple of days ago. There’s a Resolution going around (#546, I think). We have been praying for this man and his family for months. I reminded my little boy (who pronounces his name every night in his prayers, w/o my prompting) that God is good, all of the time. He will either deliver this man from this trial, through this trial, or He will deliver him by this trial. (Reference Daniel 3:13-18). There is fear that his death will kill Christianity in Iran. But we know that God’s plans always work to His good. May we all be so strong in our faith.

    • Amen Is_Sense. Well said sister.

    • “There is fear that his death will kill Christianity in Iran.”

      I’ve been praying about this for a while. I have friends in IT that are from Iran. They call themselves “Persian” and also fear the fall of Christianity in Iran. Most of the Persians I speak to are not Christian, but they are not Muslim either, and view Christianity as the most tolerant and giving religion in the Middle East.

  • sDee

    Nothing new for isalm. They have been doing this faithfully for 1400 years.

    The media has consciously chosen to not cover this. And more. The left’s innate hatred of true Christianity and its sick romance with islam can not be more clear than here.

    • Mohammad wrote “peaceful” parts of the kuran when his numbers were much less than his neighboring Jews. Once the numbers of his followers were enough to attack the Jews, the kuran from that point forward was nothing but pure violence and hatred. That should tell you that the peaceful parts of the kuran were a sham to lure the Jews into a trap. The peaceful part of the kuran is not Islamic and should be discarded like the Islamists do.

  • Conservative_Hippie

    This really makes my blood boil. If Obama (the so called christian – lol) had any gajones he would intervene and I’m NOT talking about sanctions!

  • Freedomswatch

    Praying for Youcef Nadarkhani and his family. This is the true face of the iranian regime. It is time for the youth of Iran to rise up against the regime and it is time for the United States to help those who want to be free.

  • To answer Levin’s question: the media does not care. They think Islam can do no wrong. The pastor probably has it coming for converting.

  • PFFV

    A Christian being murdered for believing in Christianity is probably just fine with the National Media and the O-blah blah administration. One thing we know for sure, the national media would NEVER insult Muslims the same way they crap all over Christians.

    This is a nation led by socialist cowards and political opportunists that seek to destroy the founding fathers perfect plan for us as a free society. They want to trample our rights and freedoms in the name of Social Justice and Forced Equality through redistribution of wealth. God Help Us!

  • PFFV

    LMAO! Sanctions! Only a politician believes sanctions will work on Islamic Extremists. The only thing these hate filled Muslims understand is death. If it was up to me I would have already joined with Israel and made all suspected nuclear sites and all the Iranian leaders homes fields of glass with small tactical nukes of our own. It’s time to show the world who is in charge again. Our procrastination and hesitation will come back to bite us inevitably. By waiting to deal with this we only make the problem worse.

  • Joe

    This a golden opportunity for ZERO

    To prove he is a Christian – He should object so the World hears him clearly
    (as he says – “right away”

    I bet he won’t – He seems to be siding with Islam all the time

    Obama shows his true colors more every day

    Is anybody listening ? Where is the MSM –

    The MSM is on the payroll – Just in case you missed this >>

    Islam good… Christianity bad…

    They have it backwards and that’s why they’ll suffer in hell for their ignorance.

    This is an outrage.

    • PFFV

      I hope they burn in hell for their immoral neglect and lack of common sense to do the right thing for the good of the USA. Their stupidity is stunning, but that is something I have known for a long time now. I guess to me the biggest thing is their childlike disregard for history and facts that clearly show what works and what doesn’t. Big Expansive Centralized Government / Planners Has Failed Everywhere It Has Been Attempted. To achieve the agenda they want we as a nation will no longer be free.

      Damn there I went again…lol! Sorry it’s my renewed passion now that times are getting near to Election Day. I think I am preaching to the choir I am certain 🙂

      I like your opinions too.. Catch you later all.

      • Sober_Thinking

        It’s funny… I’m getting mad all over again.

        One of my fears is that liberals will win again and Maobama will get re-elected. Then they can continue to distort and destroy history in favor of their own twisted, hell-spawned version.

  • Sober_Thinking

    Islam is the religion of peace and tolerance…

    The LSM has to keep reminding me of this.

  • sjmom

    In plain English Obama does not care about the pastor, Christianity or anyone or anything which cannot help him and his agenda.If you think about it he has done little for anyone since taking office. The only people he has tried to please are the far Left and this is only to get their votes in November.

  • Sober_Thinking

    After the “arab spring” we now have the “arab shame”.

  • DCGere

    SRM is dead, as Hannity said. They only have one mission – re-electing Skippy. They are nothing more than a mouthpiece for this admin.

    Prayers for Youcef and his family.

  • Islam is a culture of death. They kill people that burn a book or draw a cartoon and see no problem killing converts from Islam or their own daughter who looks at a boy. I only have one Mohammad T-shirt back when they were selling easily online (I have the one with the bomb turban on his head – funny). I need to find more. I like wearing them in a particular mall in NJ. (In my 30s, I was 19-0 in amateur MMA, so I’m crazy that way 😉 I don’t show pictures of it since I have a family to think about. Sad.

  • Maggie, are you still expecting the media to do anything but promote the liberal agenda?

  • Yazz55

    How can a religious requirement to kill anyone who isn’t a muslim be consistent with a religion of peace?

  • Szary1

    We are praying for Pastor Youcef and all the Christians behind the iron veil of Islam!
    That the Lord would strengthen them and use them to show the grace and mercy of a Loving God!

  • destroyer_of_moonbats

    the media doesnt report it because any bad press about izlamb offends the current US president… duh!

  • 911Infidel

    I believe FOX covered it. The rest of the dinasour media is more interested in cutting down Republicans with moral compasses than a Christian pastor about to be martyred for his faith in the One True God. Besides, they are all relativist screed merchants, who give more deference to the Religion of Beating Women and raping nine-yr-old girls, than a heroic man who has undergone torture at the hands of a Satanic regime; all because he won’t disavow his faith in Jesus Christ. They’ll never cover the story, because that would require exposing the Khomeni-ites as the genocidal maniacs that they are. And of course it would require a discussion of that Jesus Christ guy. Can’t have that.

    No compulsion in religion huh? Oh and don’t bother discussing the topic of naksh. Teaching the public the truth about Islam goes against the Messiah’s pedagogy. Can’t have that either.

  • jerryrob

    The mainstream media is in the same place they were when Christians were being killed and their Churches burned by followers of BHO’s cousin Raila Odinga in Kenya after this Odinga lost the election there and when muslims created violence in Nigeria when a Christian man won election there by a strong majority. They like to vet Republican candidates but they don’t want the facts out about their man. Obama wants a crisis situation with Iran at election time so he can cancel the elections and stay in power. It’s important for the president to be from America to remove the possibility of foreign powers being able to blackmail him with harm to his family overseas. This is simple. If he cancels the elections, he should be arrested.

  • denbren52

    Where is the outrage from our “Christian” President?

  • WordsFailMe

    Where are the Christians in the US?

    We have no history of staging marches, protests and nailing a damned list of demands on the door of the White House DEMANDING that a US PRESIDENT to take action against the repression of free Christians in this world! We have no history of needing to encourage our own government to do what is right.

    Maybe the Catholics, Jews and the others can issue a joint sticky note and leave it on the White House gate. After midnight.

    The world has changed people. You decent people were a majority before. Good went out looking for evil with a gun in its hand. Today you have no voice. You may want to check the rest of your anatomy for additional missing parts… Christians are being murdered and oppressed everywhere, including the US.

  • joyfulgiver

    the media is too busy with Obama and their focus is on his latest apologies for burning the koran. Pray for Nadarkhani and his family.

  • TPDanbo

    Never mind the phony leftwing/liberal media,I expect NOTHING from them, BUT where is that GREAT CHRISTIAN Obama’s crocodile tears and calls of outrage and grief for his brothers,…..ha,ha,ha,ha,ha,ha,ha,ha,ha,…….pathetic phony!!!

  • The Iranian regime is evil… It has to be removed/changed before it is way too late
