Nazanin, the Iranian teenager under a sentence of death, was acquitted, but the Islamic authorities are demanding that her family pay blood money (so called ‘diye’). This callous and reactionary demand must be condemned. If anybody is to pay damages, it should be the Islamic Republic of Iran, for the psychological and physical torment that it has inflicted on Nazanin during her imprisonment. Nazanin’s lawyers have also protested against the demand for blood money.

Meanwhile, on Monday Nazanin’s defence lawyers found out from the Prosecutors’ Office that Nazanin could be released on payment of a bail of 4 million Toman (around US$40,000).

To raise such a huge sum is beyond the means of Nazanin’s family. We are therefore reaching out for help to all those who helped win Nazanin’s campaign. We call on all concerned individuals and human rights organisations in Iran and around the world to contribute to the special fund that has been set up for this purpose.

You may pay your contributions to any of the following accounts:

Post Bank

Konto: 856915 469
IBAN: DE36 4401 00460856 9154 69
Blz: 44010046

Plusgirokonto: 412085-3
IBAN: SE 819500 00996042 0412 0853

We call on everyone to help so the campaign to save Nazanin succeeds fully, and we can celebrate her release. By paying the bail we will be able to return Nazanin to the warm embrace of her family.

  1. FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASEContact: Marvin Yakosmarviny@interbel.net Jesus, Jews, and Jihad: Spotlighting a Spiritual TruthAuthor discloses the greatest WMD on earth and the real motive of radical Islam in enslaving free worldLONGWOOD, FL— After escaping communist persecution in his native Austria, author Marvin Yakos’s parents immigrated to America when he was two months old. As a teenager, Yakos embarked on a passionate quest to find spiritual truth. Over the course of 40 years—filled with extensive travel and a period of habitation in India—his studies made him well-acquainted with Christianity, ancient Vedic teachings, and Islam. Now, in Jesus, Jews, and Jihad ($14.99, paperback, 1-60034-813-0), he seeks to warn Westerners about Islam, the avowed enemy of all infidels.“This book will help dispel the gross misunderstandings that have become stumbling blocks to America and the free world,” says Yakos. “Jihadists employ the Islamic law of lying (taquiya) that is always used in jihad, and since terrorists view us as pigs and dogs (infidels), we are lied to continually.”Yakos is no stranger to persecution. His parents’ brush with it in communist Austria gave him the perspective he needed to write this book and a working knowledge of the struggles many nations face. After studying world religions and their corresponding Scriptures, traveling the world, and living in and among various beliefs and customs, Yakos is poised to deliver a few words of caution to overzealous Americans everywhere: “Terrorists will not disclose their full intentions and motives, but Jesus, Jews and Jihad shines a penetrating light on the enemy that assails us.”Marvin Yakos was born in Austria. He studied spirituality, philosophy, and religions worldwide and subsequently earned a doctorate in English. He has published three other books, The Roaring Lion of the East, Deliverance from Drugs, and Prevent Life Decay. Xulon Press is the world’s largest Christian publisher, with more than 2,700 titles published to date. Retailers may order Jesus, Jews, and Jihad through Ingram Book Company and/or Spring Arbor Book Distributors.
