A Letter from Sayed Mossa to Dear President Obama

Christian Aid Mission:

In October Sayed Mossa handed a letter to a Westerner who came to visit him several times in jail in Afghanistan. He also asked the visitor not to come back, fearing that any misstep could lead to his death.

The letter, a copy of which WORLD received in late October, begins with a plea "to the international church of the world and to the President Brother [Barack] Obama and to the heads of ISAF force in Afghanistan." It describes his imprisonment since late May "due to faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, saviour of the world." It also describes daily beatings and torture: "They did sexual things with me, beat me by wood, by hands, by legs, mocked me ("he's Jesus Christ"), [spit] on me. No body let me for sleep night and day." He also has received death threats.

Mr. Obama, why are we supporing a government and constitution that is allowing the persecution of Christians?

Mr. Obama please grant Sayed Mossa asylum and tell Karzai that if he isn't released safely to our hands in 24 hours we'll drop Karzai off in the desert south and let him fend for himself against the Taliban.

Hat Tip: Pam.
