Yesterday freedom-loving people in the world rejoiced because a Sudanese court annulled the death sentence of Meriam Ibrahim, who was in jail with her children for marrying a Christian and for “abandoning” the Muslim faith.. Unfortunately, the joy at her release was short-lived.
CBN News is reporting today that she was re-arrested Tuesday at the international airport in Khartoum while trying to leave the country.
The article reports:
The case drew outrage from the international community. Protesters recently gathered outside the White House to demand action by the Obama administration.
“She and the children should be reunited at home with her family rather than held in prison on charges of apostasy,” U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said, calling Sudan to repeal it’s anti-human rights laws.
He also suggested that Sudan repeal any Islamic laws that go against basic human rights.
Meanwhile, the American Center for Law and Justice is calling Ibrahim’s arrest a “deeply troubling” development.
“The decision to take the entire family into custody is a violation of international law and we call on Sudan to release them without delay,” ACLJ Executive Director Jordan Sekulow said in a statement.
This is the face of Sharia Law. This is what Muslims (even some ‘moderate’ Muslims) want to bring to America. Make no mistake, Sharia Law and religious freedom cannot co-exist. If you like your religion, you cannot keep it under Sharia Law. Americans need to stand strong for human rights in our own country and for people around the world. We need to exert a lot of pressure on Sudan for the treatment of this woman–her husband is an American citizen and her children are American citizens. Is American citizenship worth anything right now?
