Guy,
 
  Saeed is not an American as you think. He was born and raised in Iran and only became an American citizen in 2010 to escape prospective deportation or dentention or use it as leverage in his campaign to spread evangelical Christianity in Iran. They gave him 9 chances but he still would not listen he continued to ''spread the word of Christ''. Second. You have to understand Iran's position. They are constantly being threatened, under surveillance, spied on, sanctioned on, having their scientists killed by the Israelis and Americans, and demonized by the US and Israel.  Also during the Shah years Islam was just about banned as a religion to be practiced and going to a mosque was made illegal by the Christian backed Shah that reigned as a dictator installed in by the US government.  On top of that 8 years of bombing by Iraq with chemical weapons and artillery all spearheaded by good old Ronald Reagan caused thousands of deaths. It is not as simple as ''save saeed'' Saeed is an Iranian at heart. And he knew very well what is going on in his country.  As far as l'm concerned I really don't care what religion he adopts and yes he has every right to adopt any religion or no religion at his discretion.  But going into a country where they have been constantly attacked and spied and threatened and embargoed should give you a sense of why they might be apprehensive of such people.

Regardsless of your religious beliefs, and regardless of your opinions
on American - Iranian relations, this is simply a matter of liberty
being denied to an American in a foreign country.

Thanks
