Meriam Ibrahim's Muslim Relatives Trying to Prove She is Muslim; Lawsuit Could Delay Departure to US
Christian Post ^ | 07/05/2014 | Stoyan Zaimov

Sudanese Christian mother Meriam Ibrahim is facing a new lawsuit after her Islamic relatives submitted a case on Thursday trying to prove that she is a Muslim, which would make her marriage to a Christian man illegal under Islamic Shariah Law. The lawsuit could further delay Ibrahim's hopes to travel with her husband and children to the U.S. and seek refuge.

Abdel Rahman Malek, the lawyer hired by Ibrahim's Muslim family, said that the Khartoum Religious Court will be reviewing their case "asking to prove that Meriam Ibrahim belongs to her (Muslim) father and family," according to Reuters.

The 27-year-old woman was spared the death penalty after an appeals court overturned the sentence in June, which was originally imposed on her for marrying a Christian South Sudanese-American. Ibrahim was briefly detained last week following her release from prison, with Sudan's government accusing her of attempting to travel with falsified South Sudanese documents.

After being released from custody, Ibrahim has been staying at the U.S. embassy in Khartoum along with her husband, Daniel Wani, and two young children.

Meriam's lawyer Mohaned Mostafa added that the Christian woman has not yet been notified of the lawsuit against her.

Who's the superpower? This family should've been transported to the US under military protection as soon as they got to that embassy.

Beyond disgusted.

Her muslim father ABANDONED the family before she was born. She was raised by her mother, and claims she is a Christian because of her upbringing.

NOT under Islamic law though. You take the religion of your father whether you like it or not.

This is SUDAN, not the USA.

Islam is patently evil...

If this woman and her family were Mestizo Illegal Aliens, Obama and GOP would have them here already

If they win the lawsuit or even if they don’t and get custody of her, they will kill her for their “Honor”.

So her so-called family can sue her, however for some reason she is prevented from suing them?

Sudan or not, the so-called family should be kicked to the curb.

How many MOABs will it take to convince the Islamists to let her go?

(How many MOABs does it take to convince an Islamist country? That's a question I hope to hear more and more often now that ISIS has claimed that it is now a country.)

I believe Obama has every intention of allowing this woman’s muslim family to murder her. They will also attempt to get custody of her children and raise them as muslims.
He could have had her out of there months ago. Actions speak louder than word and this regime is aiding and abetting muslim evil and rule all over the world. The man is a closet muslim, without question.

Indeed.

Stanley could have been an atheist, a “christian”, a Buddhist, or a Hindu and it wouldn’t have made any difference at all.

Helicopter them out. A few gunships as escort.
Cut off all foreign and relief aid to Sudan. Let them stew in their own juices!

The person in question should be able to acknowledge if he or she is a Muslim or not.

Merriam already said OPENLY under penalty of death that she is a Christian. She refuses to recant even when given the chance. What else is there to be done?

We’re not dealing with a rational culture...

Countersuit, all right — in the form of hot lead.

You’d be amazed at how a volley of hot lead discharged in the right direction solves a lot of problems.

That is what I was trying to explain.

Seen the dialogue between Ibrahim Hooper of CAIR and Megyn Kelly and IH and BOR?

That’ll give you an idea what Muslim logic is like — lie, lie, lie (taqqqiya) and change the subject in mid-sentence to confuse the opponent and then lie again.
