Fears are growing for a priest believed to have been kidnapped by ISIS as sickening reports suggest he may be crucified on Good Friday.
Father Tom Uzhunnalil was seized when four armed militants stormed an old people’s home in Aden in Yemen on March 4.
The gunmen killed 16 people, including four nuns, in the brutal attack on the home run by the in a brutal raid which killed 16 people including four nuns.
No group has come forward to claim responsibility for the kidnap of the priest, who was a member of the Silesian order in of Bangalore, India, but a survivor said ISIS was to blame.
Now reports shared on social media suggest the priest faces being brutally tortured this Friday as Christians mark the day Jesus died.
The Franciscan Sisters of Siessen , based in South Africa, posted on Facebook: “Was informed that the Salesian priest, who was kidnapped by ISIS from the Missionaries of Charity Home in Yemen is being tortured and is going to be crucified on Good Friday.
“This calls for serious concerted prayers from all of us.”

In addition Free Republic stated:
Since the reports were posted, members of Fr Tom’s order have stepped forward to deny them.
However they are unable to say where the priest may be held or whether he is alive or dead.
Father Mathew Valarkot, spokesman for the Salesians’ Bangalore province to which the kidnapped priest belongs, said: “We have absolutely no information on Fr Tom.
“But even today we do not know who has taken him and what their motives are because no one has claimed responsibility.”
Earlier this month, the sole survivor of the brutal attack, Sister Sally, described how the militants, who she said belonged to ISIS, killed everyone else.

WASHINGTON (AP) — North Korea has expanded a uranium enrichment facility and restarted a plutonium reactor that could start recovering material for nuclear weapons in weeks or months, the U.S. intelligence chief said Tuesday in delivering the annual assessment by intelligence agencies of the top dangers facing the country.
He also said Islamic militants and those inspired by the Islamic State group will continue to pose a threat to Americans at home and abroad; al-Qaida remains an enemy; and the U.S. will continue to see cyber threats from China, Russia and North Korea.
Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said that Pyongyang announced in 2013 its intention to refurbish and restart nuclear facilities, to include the uranium enrichment facility at Yongbyon and its plutonium production reactor, which was shut down in 2007. Clapper said U.S. intelligence had assessed that North Korea has expanded Yongbyon and restarted the plutonium production reactor there.
Below is the actual tweet from 3:58 am several hours before to Saeed Abedini’s wife from my wife as she was led of the Lord through the Holy Spirit in a prophetic word, we, who allow the Holy Spirit to possess us, and will incline our ears to hear, and share the truth, will always be blessed to be a blessing. In October, the Lord gave her a specific scripture to share with Naghmeh that her prayers had reached the throne room of Heaven and would be answered. God’s ways are not our ways and He uses the foolish things to confound the wise. If we are to be called names or persecuted for preaching the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and share in His sufferings in order to bring souls to Father God in Jesus Name, so be it. May Jesus Name be Glorified until His return may we all draw near to God through Jesus His Only Son, Who is the Word of God being equal to God made flesh. In Jesus Name. Amen. –Pastor David
Dear USA, We are all witnesses to the fervent prayers of a righteous woman, Naghmeh Abedini, who has been praying for the release of her husband Pastor Saeed Abedini from the world’s worst prison, Evin prison in the Islamic Republic of Iran for several years now. God has heard and answered. For Jesus said and says to us who believe, “Ask anything in My name and I will go to The Father on your behalf and He will answer you for My Namesake and these things shall you do even greater things than Me.” Jesus says… It is all for God’s Glory in Jesus Name.
Naghmeh’s prayers were heard by God The Father presented to Him by His Son Jesus Who is seated at His Right Hand, “The Lord said to My Lord” is God’s Son Who is equal to God The Father, Jesus Who is the Only Mediator between all men, women of all races, cultures, tribes, and creeds. God’s Jesus’ Holy Spirit, The Comforter Who raised Christ Jesus from the dead lives in each one of us who believes in our heart’s and confesses Jesus as Lord God before all men. Those of us who ask shall receive the Power of The Holy Spirit when we are Baptized by The Holy Spirit in Jesus Name with Holy Fire poured out of and upon everyone who asks shall receive.
God spoke these words to me for Naghmeh Abedini regarding the Lord releasing her husband Saeed Abedini from prison the night before his supernatural totally miraculous release by the hand of The Living God The Word Made Flesh Who is Jesus The Son of God for all nations and all tribes.
Psalm 102:19-20 (NIV)
“The Lord looked down from his sanctuary on high,
from heaven he viewed the earth,
to hear the groans of the prisoners
and release those condemned to death.”
Prior to Saeed’s sudden miraculous release, he was said to have been in Irans equivalent of CIA custody, according to online reports by Jay and Jordan Sekulow, two attorneys who are also brothers who have been heavily invested in time and prayers in this case as well as many other persecuted Christians cases. This case was one that was refused to be heard for over three years regarding the release of Pastor Abedini and three other Americans. A fourth American, former FBI agent working as a CIA agent contractor, Robert “Bob” Levinson, is still not yet heard from. The US administration has asked for any word to his whereabouts in the Islamic Republic of Iran and his family cries out to this day for answers. We pray that Mr. Levinson’s name is written in the Lamb’s Book of Life no matter where he is right now.
God is a Good God. He is our daddy God Abba Father Daddy God. He cares for us His Children who are grafted onto the vine of His Chosen People Israel. We are Jewish, all Christians are by the circumcision of our hearts. We are adopted co-heirs of the Promise given to Father Abraham through Isaac the Promised Chosen son. It is through the lineage of Abraham down through King David and King Solomon his son that Jesus was born of a Virgin and espoused to Joseph her husband.
Pastor Saeed Abedini has been a constant Witness to others to the faithfulness of His Savior Jesus. We are to visit and bring comfort to those who are in chains in prison suffering for Righteousness sake and intercede for all who suffer giving practical aid and defense to widows and children who are defenseless on their own.
The Body of Christ comprised of sinners is made righteous by Faith through Grace and not by works lest we boast. If we are to boast let us boast of what Jesus has done through us.
What makes anyone righteous, you, me, anyone in the Body of Christ, which is The Bride of Christ? It is not by our own good works, but by the Blood of Jesus spilled out for all of our sins collectively for all time.
God’s Word says that we have overcome the enemy by the blood of The Lamb and the Saints testimony.
We are Victorious in this life and the Eternal life to come by Jesus The Word Who is God made flesh.
Pastor Saeed Abedini is coming home to be back in the land of the Free and Home of the brave. Let us not disappoint him that we have surrendered what Freedoms he was placed in the worst prison in the world for.
My husband Pastor David Orts and I have never met Naghmeh or Saeed but have been in intercession for their family’s suffering and ongoing battle to bring her husband home. Many Christians in USA and around the world have been praying for Saeed as well as the other US hostages being held as prisoners in Evin prison and elsewhere. Jay Sekulow has been fighting for Saeed’s freedom for a long time. God Bless you Mr. Sekulow!
When God speaks to the Body, He can use anyone anyway He chooses, but it will always line up with His Character and His Living Word speaking Truth in Love. To hear an answer to prayer, a revelatory Word on behalf of another Brother or Sister in the Lord is a Gift. God’s Holy Spirit wants all who seek God to know His Son Jesus intimately in the midst of suffering, all trials, yielding to surrender to His Holy Living Word bring strength which is Joy, hope in the middle of despair. God’s Holy Spirit is on standby for all Who seek Truth Holiness, Love, Forgiveness, Redemption, Restoration, and Eternal Salvation. His Name is Jesus. Thank You Jesus for helping us all seeking Mercy in our time of need, in Your Name we thank You Jesus!!! In Your Name Jesus we pray Amen.
#All4 Released Praise Jesus & prayers

“Pushing Back Tyranny With Truth for USA Israel & The World”
10 High Risk GITMO terrorists were released one day after Iran’s IRGC released the ten kidnapped US Navy Sailors. Coincidence?
Obama ordered the 10 Muslim terrorists to be temporarily kept at Oman before being released back into battle. Oman is right next to Yemen a hotbed for ISIS training camps and is an Islamic military stronghold.
US sailors were allegedly 50 miles off course however there is normal Navy protocol to get an assist from fellow Navy in vicinity, even French ships were nearby ready to assist if called upon. No, this wasn’t a case of two lost armed US Navy Riverines, this looks like a set up by Obama to place his own Navy in danger to help Iran’s propaganda continue showing US to be weak and helpless in Iranian waters.
Other Navy Command ships nearby did not hear the request for help. Communications were said to have been down. They were captured by Iran’s IRGC which Obama reportedly did call to inform Iran US sailors needed assistance. Obama allegedly gave our enemy Iran our US Navy’s exact coordinates who went and picked them up, then blindfolded them after filming all their identities. Wonder if those Sailors knew they would be held hostage for 16 hours before being released back to USS Truman aircraft carrier. All ten are being debriefed in Qatar as is normally done in hostage situations. It is not clear if Iran absconded with the two Riverine boats and all the enclosed secret technology. Iran definitely violated the Geneva convention. Obama is a Traitor to our Republic USA. And Allen West is right. We are in WWIII.
Secretary Ash Carter said, “It was a navigational error.” Jennifer Griffin on Greta states there was no sign of mechanical failure on either boat and neither boat attempted to communicate. Iran fired ballistic missiles nearby several days back with no consequences and then allegedly got precise coordinates presumably by Obama himself as stated in Ash Carter’s public press briefing. Iran’s forces proceeded to have their missiles lock onto USS Truman aircraft carrier with armed missiles.
In the meantime, while ten Sailors were unsure of their fate or the fate of their carrier ship USS Truman, Obama ordered ten high level Muslim monster terrorists to be released. They were released and sent to Oden temporarily, supposedly in custody. Oman borders Yemen which is a terror hotbed. Obama also announced that he will release 30 more GITMO Muslim Islamic terrorists by this summer.

Breaking News Now! Reliable reports say Iran’s Navy Commander Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi had his forces IRGC (Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps) missiles locked on target, The USSTruman aircraft carrier. It is the exact same ship that the US Sailors were taken from and held hostage by Iran. They were subsequently released after being forced onto their knees and apologizing. Were they ordered to surrender? It is not like our US military to surrender or apologize. Were there missiles aimed at the USS Truman before and during the Sailors abduction and not just afterwards? Were the Sailors trying to save the entire ship and all crew aboard? Original reports stated that two of the smaller Navy vessels originally dispatched for unknown reasons were experiencing mechanical problems, identical ones. It was then theorized by many that Iran must have emitted an EMP or had gotten the electrical computer codes somehow to remotely disable the boats. The story keeps changing. We are seeking the truth behind these incidents which appear to be related somehow (i.e 10 Sailors held hostage with missiles pointed at The USS Truman and the subsequent release today of 10 high level GITMO terrorists by the Obama administration.)
Colonel Allen West seems to agree that something really odd is up here,
The result of two U.S. Navy vessels being boarded and seized by an enemy – which is what the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Navy is – is disturbing. The images and video they took depicting our sailors on their knees in the position of surrender is damning. This, folks, is an act of war, and our sailors were captured. Let’s not try and use “nuanced” language.
USS Truman is also same carrier that Iran had fired unguided missiles at days before. Click to view
Iran’s Navy Commander Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi said on Wednesday, shortly after Iran released ten US sailors it had captured the day before after they strayed into Iranian waters due to a technical malfunction, that his forces were ready to blow US warships out of the water.
Fadavi, of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) navy, warned that his forces were “awaiting orders” to shoot their coast-to-sea missiles at the USS Harry S. Truman aircraft carrier, which together with a French aircraft carrier and additional warships was maneuvering near Iranian waters, uncertain over the fate of the captive sailors.
“The USS Truman Aircraft carrier showed unprofessional moves for 40 minutes after the detention of the trespassers, while we were highly prepared with our coast-to-sea missiles, missile-launching speedboats and our numerous capabilities” and were ready to strike, Fadavi said according to the semi-official Fars News Agency.

Is that why these Sailors surrendered before their ultimate release by Iran? Don’t miss fact that 10 GITMO terrorists ordered released back into field by Obama yesterday, Thursday (1.14.2016) – by M. Katherine Orts

Dear Fellow Citizens of The Republic of The United States,
We invite your news tips, comments, if you “see something please say something” to somebody trustworthy to help protect each one of us, our families, co-workers, friends and neighbors. Each one of us must aim for excellence in our individual talents making the most of our time, being good stewards, faithful in our collective and individual callings, helping every loyal US citizen to rise to greatness for every fellow American and every true ally, especially our Mid-East ally Israel, for Father Jehovah God’s Glory in the name of Jesus “Yeshua Ha Mashiach” Word of God Made Flesh and in the Power and Might of The Holy Spirit “for such a time as this.” Esther 4:14
A reliable intel source pointed me in the direction of a recently written article, and in my opinion had not yet widely been circulated or connected to the US Sailors plight. My source states that certain politicians will eventually acknowledge that these two incidents “are interconnected.”
Is it a ludicrous “coincidence” that in this same week, of releasing 10 GITMO Muslim high risk Islamic jihadist terrorists, The Islamic Republic of Iran, was allowed to publicly, and for all time record books, humiliate ten (10) of our US Armed Servicemen and one servicewoman who were held hostage?
Thank God all ten Sailors were safely released back to our US Navy.
Who allowed or ordered Iran to force our heroes on their knees to apologize? Did this Commander apologize on his own behalf or others? Was this Sailor, or all, threatened with torture or death by Islamic Iran? This is not our fighting style America. We wish no soldier ever to be in this position. We need more facts to judge rightly.
How was it that it was somehow the @USNavy ‘s fault that Iran was inconvenienced to capture ten (10) of our best in two identically electronically disabled boats? Was there an EMP? Or as The Savage Nation talk show host, author and botanist DR. Michael Savage stated on his show last night asked if someone, maybe Obama himself, gave Iran access codes to US Navy boats?
Who, where, why, what and when exactly were our US Sailors set up? Were they to be used as pawns? To be traded as assets by Obama and his administration?
10 US Sailor heroes > for 10 Muslim monster Islamic #Manimals murderers intent on continuing Jihad wherever able upon their release.
#GITMO10 release is happening today #USA Be prayerfully prepared always in all ways in Jesus Name above all names.

The U.S. military is preparing a bulk transfer of 10 detainees on Thursday from its detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, two defense officials told Fox News.
The transfer, amounting to about 10 percent of the remaining prisoners, marks the largest group of detainees to be shipped out of the camp since Defense Secretary Ash Carter informed Congress in December his department would transfer a wave of detainees at the beginning of 2016.
The accelerated transfers reflect a renewed effort by the president – who is likely to highlight the issue in the State of the Union address Tuesday night – to shutter the controversial prison camp. But the moves have heightened security concerns, as some of the latest detainees being shipped out were deemed medium- or high-risk prisoners.
“All these guys are the ‘hardcore’ type; if not, they would have been transferred earlier,” said one official familiar with the list of those being transferred Thursday.
The upcoming transfer would bring the number of detainees moved out of the camp this year to 14; the administration is looking to transfer a total of 17 in the coming weeks. Right, now, there are 103 detainees remaining at the camp, and all have ties to Al Qaeda or other terrorist groups.

Quagmire is not pronounced “qwawgmire” Mr.Obama.
Something bothered me more than all the usual repetitious self back patting, faux accomplishments and regal declarations coming out of POTUS’ mouth such as “We have to change how the system works” in tonight’s final SOTU (State of The Union) January 12th, 2016 9pm.
It was the timeline.
“In five years…”
“In ten years…”
Why were those two statements of reaching time line goals for The Republic of The United States of America so troubling?
In five or ten years, Barack Obama will then (hopefully) have no pen or phone, at least one in the Whitehouse Oval office but…
The timelines line up exactly with Islam’s Millennium Goals as outlined by the UN/OIC and ISIS is that same government’s standing army. Its moving, growing and consolidating with all who fight Jihad in the name of Islam, allah and Muhammad globally.
There is danger in this subtle reference of five years and ten years by our POTUS Barack Obama because his loyalty, as We The People have seen, is not to Our Creator God Jesus, as acknowledged in The Declaration of Independence or to our US Constitution but Obama’s loyalty is to his Muslim Brotherhood and all of Islam, which is a Theocratic Military run Government at enmity with God Himself and all Saints.
The Organization of Islamic Cooperation heads ISIS and all Islamic jihadi forces around the world via the strongholds of all Islamic Republics as represented by selected delegates in the UN. These “Millennium Development” goals have been repetitively referred to by Obama in all of his UN speeches. The Islamic goals via the UN and the OIC are identical and their intent is to overthrow all of Western civilization and all non Muslim governments in five (5) year incremental time limits or goals.
The closest five year goal is the year 2020. It is the UN/OIC/ISIS=Islamic Caliphate’s ultimate and shared trophy for a global caliphate which will be ruled by one Imam, the 12th Imam, The Madhi who is recognized in all of Islam as Barack The Madhi Hussein Imam Obama. In the Bible he is referred to as The AntiChrist. ISIS is the AntiChrist’s Army making war with all the Saints (Christians and Jews) turning all armies under One World Islamic banner to attack USA and crown jewel Israel, God’s Chosen People in their Promised Land with Jerusalem as her capital.
In prayer, Jesus’ Holy Spirit revealed to me that the Temple has already been desecrated by the Abomination. The Temple is The Body of Christ and the Abomination is The AntiChrist Barack Obama. The Saints are being wearied and killed around the world. Obama has changed times, customs and laws. #WakeUpAmerica
The Paris Agreement is non enforceable yet it was heralded as a great accomplishment in uniting all nations in fight against manmade global climate change. It has a five year end goal.
Only 23 seconds warning was given before the weapons were fired, according to U.S. Navy Cmdr. Kyle Raines, a spokesman for U.S. Central Command.
The rockets were not fired at the Truman and other ships, and there were no direct communications between U.S. and Iranian navies, military officials said.
“The IRGCN’s actions were highly provocative,” Cmdr. Kevin Stephens, spokesman for the U.S. Fifth Fleet, said Wednesday in a statement.
“Firing weapons so close to passing coalition ships and commercial traffic within an internationally recognized maritime traffic lane is unsafe, unprofessional, and inconsistent with international maritime law.”
Iran’s navy conducted rocket tests last week near US warships and other commercial vessels in the Strait of Hormuz, the American military has said.
The tests threaten to cause new tensions between the two nations following their landmark nuclear deal.
Iran fired “several unguided rockets” about 1,370m (1,500 yards) from two US vessels and a French frigate, US military spokesman Kyle Raines said.
The tests were “highly provocative”, said Cmdr Raines.
The Strait of Hormuz is a narrow waterway between Iran and Oman that provides passage for nearly a third of all oil traded by sea. The strait is also crucial for ships taking part in the war against so-called Islamic State.
In 2012 Iran threatened to block the strait, which lies at the entrance of the Gulf and is 33km (21 miles) wide at its narrowest point.
The latest incident, which took place on Saturday according to the US, follows a series of weapons tests by the Islamic Republic. Iranian media and officials did not immediately comment on the reports.
Iranian ships announced over maritime radio their intention to carry out the test 23 minutes before the rockets were fired.
“Firing weapons so close to passing coalition ships and commercial traffic within an internationally recognised maritime traffic lane is unsafe, unprofessional and inconsistent with international maritime law,” Cmdr Raines said.
The US Navy’s 5th Fleet is based in nearby Bahrain. It conducts anti-piracy patrols in the Gulf and serves as a regional counterbalance to Iran.
Iran signed a long-term deal with six world powers in July to limit its sensitive nuclear activities in return for the lifting of crippling sanctions.
However, this year it has also broadcast footage of a missile attack on a mock-up of an US aircraft carrier and aired film on state TV of an underground missile base.
The Strait of Hormuz was the scene of a battle between the US and Iran in April 1988, when the US attacked two Iranian oil platforms used for surveillance and sank or damaged six of its vessels, including two naval frigates.
Tensions had erupted after the near-sinking of missile frigate USS Samuel B Roberts by an Iranian mine.
In July 1988, the USS Vincennes was patrolling the strait when it shot down an Iran Air flight heading to Dubai, killing 290 people on board. The ship’s crew apparently mistook the plane for an Iranian F-14 fighter.
WASHINGTON — Four months after a historic accord with Tehran to limit its atomic ambitions, American officials and private security groups say they see a surge in sophisticated computer espionage by Iran, culminating in a series of cyberattacks against State Department officials over the past month.
The surge has led American officials to a stark conclusion: For Iran, cyberespionage — and the power it gives the Iranians to jab at the United States and its neighbors without provoking a military response — is becoming a tool to obtain the influence that many in Iran hoped the nuclear program would give the country.

President Obama’s marquee deportation amnesty has been stalled by the courts, but the rest of his executive actions on immigration, announced exactly a year ago, are moving forward — including his move protecting more than 80 percent of illegal immigrants from any danger of deportation.
The amnesty, dubbed Deferred Action for Parental Accountability was supposed to grant full tentative legal status — including work permits, Social Security numbers and driver’s licenses — to more than 4 million illegal immigrants. It has been halted by a federal appeals court, and its fate will soon rest with the Supreme Court.
