I don’t care what Muslims in the US and elsewhere say, they are NOT a religion of peace and they do NOT want to live in tolerance with any other religion. Case in point is that of Meriam Yehya Ibrahim.
Ibrahim is the daughter of a Sudanese father and Ethiopian mother. When she was six years old, her father left the family and she was then raised by her mother who is also a Christian. The Sudanese government however, still considered her to be a Muslim since her father was a Muslim.
Ibrahim met an American man, Daniel Wani and they fell in love and got married. Wani is also a Christian and this according to the Sudanese government is a crime punishable by death. They gave Ibrahim a choice of renouncing her Christian faith, which also includes denouncing her marriage which the Sudanese government says is illegal, or face a death sentence.
Wani told Fox News:
“She said she is not going to convert to Islam. And let them do whatever they want to do but she is still a Christian and she is a Christian since she was born.”
He told CNN:
“I’m so frustrated. I don’t know what to do. I’m just praying.”
Osman Mubarak, Ibrahim’s attorney explained Ibrahim’s decision to a radio station, saying:
“No, she thinks that the court is wrong, and she is refusing to abdicate her husband and she will continue her life with him, and he visits her once a week. Once a week the jail administration allows him to visit her.”
“To be executed to death or to return back to Islam.
“If she returns back to Islam, she cannot go back to her husband and marry him again. The marriage is [considered] illegal.”
Her decision not to renounce her Christian faith and her marriage has resulted in Ibrahim being sentenced to be hanged to death after receiving 100 lashes for adultery (for being illegally married to an American Christian). She is currently in prison with her 20 month old son. Oh yeah, Ibrahim is pregnant with the couple’s second child. Sudanese authorities plan to wait till she has the baby and then hang her.
According to Mubarak, the US government has done virtually nothing to help Ibrahim who is married to a US citizen. All they’ve done so far is to send a monitor to the latest court case in which Mubarak filed an appeal based on Sudanese adoption of international law.
Other than the monitor, the Obama administration has said and done nothing to help save this Christian wife and mother. Obama’s silence can only be interpreted as his validation of the Islamic death sentence on the wife of an American citizen. He is so quick to defend Muslims, but when it comes to Christians, and a pregnant Christian at that, Barack HUSSEIN Obama quietly sits back and waits for the hanging of Meriam Yehya Ibrahim.
