@FLOTUS, where’s Meriam’s hashtag?
Oprah, where’s Meriam’s TV special?
These hypocrites make my skin crawl, cloaking themselves in do-goody rhetoric when the victims of jihad suffer in silence. The persecution of religious minorities under Islamic law is the worst human rights crime our time — and we can’t talk about it for fear of offending savages.
Her crime? Meriam Ibrhaim was brought up as an Orthodox Christian, but a Sudanese judge ruled earlier this month that she should be regarded as Muslim because that had been her father’s faith. That’s her crime under Islam.
“Meriam Ibrahim Re-Arrested in Sudan Just Day After Being Freed, NBC News, June 25, 2014
A mother who was freed from death row for refusing to renounce Christianity has been re-arrested just one day later while trying to leave Sudan, her lawyer told NBC News on Tuesday. Meriam Ibrahim, 27, was “very happy” after an appeals court on Monday overturned a death sentence imposed because she married a Christian man and allegedly turned her back on Islam. But lawyer Elshareef Ali Mohammed said a group of 50 security force personnel arrested her and family members during an angry confrontation at Khartoum’s airport on Tuesday.
Mohammed, who said he was at the airport with Ibrahim, said no reason was given for her re-arrest. Britain’s Foreign Office said it had received confirmation that Sudan’s National Intelligence and Security Service had detained Ibrahim and her husband Daniel Wani, an American citizen who told the Guardian following his wife’s release that he hoped they could start a new life in the U.S. The couple were with their two children at the time of their detention, including the baby Ibrahim gave birth to while she was on death row in a women’s prison. When contacted by NBC News, a State Department spokeswoman said Ibrahim was “safe,” but declined to say where due to security reasons.EPA FILE
