The US Government Abandons American To Sharia?
The American Conservative ^ | May 16, 2014 | Ron Dreher

Andrew Bostom raises a disturbing question about the case of Meriam Ibrahim, the Sudanese Christian woman sentenced by a sharia court in Khartoum to hang for apostasy. Excerpt:

Ibrahim’s naturalized American husband, Daniel Wani reports that since their incarceration a guard named Kawther Hassen has not allowed his wife and son to receive visits, including from him, or to access medical assistance. However, Mr Wani also notes that his wife has been allowed visits by Muslim scholars who have been pressuring her to ‘return’ to Islam, the religion of her father.

More:

How has the Obama Administration reacted to the grotesque (if Sharia-sanctioned) violation of Meriam Ibrahim’s basic human rights—including the incarceration of her 20-month old toddler son Martin, a U.S. citizen?

Daniel Wani described the unconscionable indifference to his wife and family’s plight. Re-affirming what is quite evident, “My wife was never a Muslim,” Wani—a U.S. citizen—pleaded with “the government of the USA to help me.” But Wani claims that when he called the U.S. Embassy on April 9, 2014 a representative in Khartoum informed him of their lack of interest in the case. Noting that the couple’s toddler boy, Martin, is a U.S. citizen by virtue of his father’s U.S. citizenship, Daniel Wani also declared that U.S. Embassy officials in Khartoum have not cooperated in granting the family travel papers to leave The Sudan, and further have told him he must prove he is the father with a DNA test prior to even offering any assistance!

If this is true, then Congress should be raising hell.

At least they’d cut off Bradley Manning’s head, rather than his ...

As far as I am concerned, the poor people are left to kiss the boots of the elite, because there’s some sort of Armageddon promised by the government if we don’t.

Congress raising hell???
That will never happen.
Next to the fraud in the white hut, they are the most disreputable bunch of cowards in this country.
