Abd Al Nabi told Hardwired, Since taking Mariems case, extremists say we are not Muslim and are threatening our lives if we dont drop her case. When asked why he is risking his life for human rights and religious freedom, Abd Al Nabe continued, I defend everyone regardless of their beliefs because we all share a common humanity and no ones life should be taken because of what they believe. All of the laws need to be changed including those affecting religious freedom

Can anyone out there translate this language?
This is a story that defies truth. I thought she was released a week or two ago and sought refuge in the US embassy.
Abd Al Nabe is a HERO before the world and before God.
I also recall a story of a Muslim man in Africa protecting a Christian Family until they caught him and beheaded him. I know in my Heart that this man is in Heaven with the Lord. May God pour his wrath upon those who do Evil.
Not everybody who “says” he is Islamic may have the same view of the Lord.
Where’s Obama and Kerry...oh wait too busy condemning the Israelis for arresting that Pali American who was engaged in violent rock throwing.
He sounds like he would be a great American.
How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy.-- Sir Winston Churchill (The River War, first edition, Vol. II, pages 248-50 [London: Longmans, Green & Co., 1899]).
The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live.
A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.
Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it.
No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome.
Good for this guy!
See Rev 20:4.
The original linked article noted this;
“The multi-faith support for freedom in Sudan is nothing new. The first and last person sentenced to death for apostasy in Sudan was Mahmoud Mohammed Taha, a Muslim leader of the Republican Party. According to Abd Almoniem, Tahas death and the current sentence against Mariem are reminders that no one is safe under this government neither Muslims or Christians. If the apostasy law remains, others will be oppressed for what they believe, which is why we are all standing together to end this law now.
Which led me to look up Mahmoud Mohammed Taha. And I found this, linked from a Wiki article on him:
“Al-Ustaz Mahmoud himself had previously been detained together with eight leaders of the group, for one month in 1976-77 without charge for publishing a book criticizing the Wahhabi movement of Saudi Arabia.”
You can read about him here; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mahmoud_Mohammed_Taha
But that line about writing a book critical of Wahhabism makes me wonder if not only the unfortunate Mahmoud Muhammad Taha but also the folks mentioned in the Hardwired article in the OP are either Sufis, or at least strongly influenced by them. The ideas they espouse are very common in Sufism, and writing books/pamphlets/articles condemning Wahhabism/Salafism is something Sufis are pretty well known for - much to the chagrin (actually, spittle-flecked rage would be more appropriate) of Wahhabis/Salafists.
I admit I don’t know the intricacies of Sudan’s version of Sharia law, but if it’s like other Wahhabi/Salafist variants of the application of Sharia, then Sufism is automatically considered as apostasy and punishable by death. Which is typical of Salafists - they really don’t like the mystical ideas behind Sufism, or other notions, such as thinking for yourself, religious freedom, or the equality of women.
You know.....all that “dangerous stuff” according to the Wahhabists and Salafists.
