Sudanese woman sentenced to die for Christian faith to be freed, report says
Fox News.com ^ | May 31, 2014

Posted on 05/31/2014 3:59:37 PM PDT by Kaslin

The Sudanese woman sentenced to death earlier this month after refusing to renounce her Christian faith will reportedly be freed in the next few days.

A foreign ministry official told the BBC that Meriam Ibrahim, 27, is guaranteed religious freedom in the country, despite a judge's earlier ruling that she should be hanged for apostasy.

Ibrahim gave birth to a girl early Tuesday at a prison clinic in Omdurman, near Khartoum, one of her attorneys told FoxNews.com by phone.

It appears that she is being freed because of the UK Foreign Office applying pressure on Sudan. Despite having an American husband and two American children, it appears the US State Department and White House did NOTHING to try to secure her release.

When the US government threatens to cut off the cash, these third world dictators get the message.

Sudan only had 300 million reasons to let her go.

DAMMIT.

(Did I write that or just think it...)

Surely somebody wrote a memo to somebody who wrote an email to somebody else who called somebody. Nothing?

Well, I'm glad of that, but they really need to decide what the laws are in their country. Shouldn't be too hard.

Thanks be to God (and not to Allah) that this woman is apparently being freed--- although I'll believe that when I see it.

And thanks be to God that Meriam Ibrahim has proven faithful to Jesus Christ Our Lord. A serious and stunning example to us all.

I have lived and worked in South America, North America, Europe, Africa, and Asia. We always knew if things were a little bit dicey the American Embassy would get us out of Dodge City. We also knew if things had really turned to politically incorrect sh-t, go to the British Embassy. The Brits would do what was right instead of what was politically correct. That was in the 60s 70s and early 80s. I hope this still is correct for the Brits as I sure as hell know it is not correct for my American Embassy.

What a beautiful name for such a beautiful witness....Ibrahim, the father of the faithful; Miriam, the sister of Moses who sang of the Lord's triumph over Pharoah at the Red Sea.

Yeppers.

NOTHING was done by Barry Soreto .. because this was a pregnant Christian woman being persecuted and tortured by Muslims because of her faith.

Do you really think he really cares? Assuming of course, that Barry was actually told anything about this of course.

Noteworthy is the fact that now the odds of that "ministry official" to be killed by a islamaniac are about 50-50.
The sharia" judge? pretty much zero.

She may be in more danger when she is released.

If they just open the doors and let her out the gates of the prison, she will killed within minutes by a crowd of people.

Well, I'm glad of that, but they really need to decide what the laws are in their country. Shouldn't be too hard.

You can't be serious.

The two major sects of islam can't agree of what "the laws" are. They have killed each other for centuries over that single issue.
And neither set are secular laws.

Except that for 20th-21st century Muslims, a "martyr" (shahid of shaheed) is a person who loses his life while murdering a whole bunch of other people, including innocent ones. In fact, I've read that if a Muslim "fighting in the way of Allah" (for the advancement of Islam) dies in his bloody assault and kills a bunch of Muslim bystanders simultaneously, the Muslim "collateral damage" people are also considered shahids, that is, they are honored as fortunate and assured of Paradise.

So they're not particularly scrupulous about "collateral damage," even if the people they kill are their own.

Thus --- at least in our lifetime --- "martyr" to Muslims has acquired an almost opposite meaning that the word as applied by Christians.

In the Catholic Church, for instance, a person cannot be honored with the title of "martyr" if he died "in possession of arms."

Your statement.

It appears that she is being freed because of the UK Foreign Office applying pressure on the Sudan.

Splendid news! Out of politeness I will not comment on the White House here. I can only hope some decent soul, did some fast work on this woman's behalf Stateside. Who knows? What I would like to comment on, is the name Omdurman. Scene of the British/Egyptian forces victory over the Sudanese Arabic forces in 1898. Churchill was there riding in the Cavalry. Possibly one of the last battles in which the forces of Islam took the field. Although they did fight in WW1 in the Middle East and were defeated by Lord Allenby's forces.

This seems to be another victory. One for diplomacy.

Thank you, UK.

See what a little pressure from “outsiders” (UKIP, Tea party) will do?

You know where he stands when the political winds shift in an ugly direction.

Why would they? They believe that Sharia Law has its place here - it certainly gives those in power some juicy options to handle "heretics" and "apostates".....
