Ahmed Sumeira, a courageous Muslim civil liberties lawyer I knew in the Middle East, says he has personally investigated the dispute between the Iranian government and Fox News about why Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani faces capital punishment. The government says he committed rape and extortion. Fox News reviewed the Court decree ordering the hanging and discovered that not a word was mentioned about rape or extortion. As a former Muslim Pastor Nadarkhani’s to be hanged for apostasy.

Amnesty International says the government has offered leniency on the condition that Nadarkhani renounces his Christian faith.
