For all the malarkey the left spews about the fabricated War on Women in America, one would think there is real persecution happening within our borders. Yet the truth is that Sandra Fluke, Gloria Steinem, and the rest of the bra-burning brigade don’t have a clue and are an embarrassment of the worst order.
The real war against women is occurring right now, almost every day – in Muslin controlled countries, while hypocritical women like Hillary Clinton expound on and expand their platform for dividing America.
Consider Dr. Meriam Yehya Ibrahim, who according to Reuters is a 27-year-old Sudanese Christian physician who’s about to be flogged 100 times and then put to death. Her crime? The unthinkable sin of not being Muslim.
Dr. Ibrahim’s father was Muslim and ran off and left her home when she was six years old. Since her mother was a Christian, she raised Meriam in the same faith. Meriam is married to Daniel Wani, a South Sudanese Christian with U.S. citizenship. The couple has a 20 month old son and Meriam is eight months pregnant with their second child.
But the couple’s faith is a problem for the oppressive government in Sudan. Since the predominantly Christian South Sudan secession in 2011, the government of Sudan has made it clear they are aiming for a 100% Islamic constitution, without any outside influences. That equates to no Christianity. Although the new constitution has not yet been ratified, the government has apparently already adopted Shari’a law.
Meriam’s horrifying ordeal began last August, when someone posing as a relative reported to the authorities that she was a Christian. She was subsequently arrested in February and charged on March 4, for apostasy and for adultery. According to Shari’a law a Muslim woman is forbidden from marrying a Christian man, and thus the marriage to Wani was annulled by the Sudan court. The annulment set her up for the crime of adultery and she was convicted of both apostasy and adultery on Mother’s Day, May 11.
She was given three days to renounce her Christian faith and convert to Islam, or face a flogging of 100 lashes for adultery, followed by the death penalty for being a Christian. Her sentencing is set for today, Thursday, May 15.
