Pastor Nadarkhani still alive but...

A Fox report today suggests Iranian Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani, sentenced to death for apostasy from Islam, is still alive, for now. Significantly, the report suggests pressure as a result of an outcry from the West is causing the Iranian authorities to reconsider their decision.

Why not retweet every reference to this issue we come across to bring it right up the agenda? I've posted a couple of links and appeals on Twitter@Smith_Calvin. I also noticed Nicky Gumbel (Alpha) had called for a mass Twitter response today. I'm sure others are doing likewise. Letters to the Iranian embassy are important, but the more this goes viral (as it has been doing for some days) the more people talk about it, and importantly, Iran knows it's being talked about.
