Naghmeh Abedini calls on Obama administration for ‘decision’ to bring Saeed Abedini home

Pastor Saeed Abedini has been in an Iranian jail for over two years now and his wife, Naghmeh, speaks out to call for a stronger move by the Obama administration.

Even though President Obama called on Iranian President Rouhani regarding Saeed and Secretary of State John Kerry has called for the American pastor’s release, Naghmeh explains her frustration and what she feels has and has not been done.

Naghmeh Saeed AbediniIt’s been frustrating. It took a lot of pressure from the American people for him to say something, make a phone call and then – he did mention Saeed at the prayer breakfast. But, I feel like that decision hasn’t been made to use leverage or to put pressure to bring Saeed home. I don’t know if his statements have been made to just appease me or the American people. Deep down I don’t think there has been a decision made to bring him home because I do believe if that decision had been made, he would be home right now,” she tells Townhall.com.

” I believe they’re going to use all the leverage that they have for nuclear talks, and I do believe Saeed has been abandoned and forgotten in this process. Again I’m thankful for those statements, but there has to be action to back that up. It’s been two years too long.”

Naghmeh pours out her heart and soul during the interview and reiterates Saeed’s strength in Jesus Christ and what he has overcome.

“He’s not denied his faith and under intense persecution and torture, especially early on in his imprisonment, and he’s who he is. No matter where he’s at, loving people means sharing about how God has changed his life. So that’s been who he is. It’s not because he’s being confined. He’s just sharing about hope and life that he’s found in Christ – wherever he’s gone.”
