The real war on women is the war being waged by radical Islam under the banner of Shari’ah Law. Let the upcoming hanging of a Christian woman serve as an example.
Sudanese Coptic Priests
According to Amnesty International a 27-year old Sudanese woman, Meriam Yehya Ibrahim, who is pregnant, was convicted by a Khartoum court this week of apostasy. She will be executed by hanging for that “crime.”
They consider her a Muslim. She married a Christian man and converted which is not allowed in the Sudan. Muslims in that country do not recognize her marriage to a Christian and convicted her of adultery as well. She will suffer 100 lashes for that “crime.”
Judge Abbas Mohammed Al-Khalifa told the woman that she was given three days to recant but will not return to Islam and must therefore be executed.
She reacted without emotion to the decision. She told the judge, “I am a Christian and I never committed apostasy.”
The Sudan’s Islamist regime introduced sharia law in 1983. They often flog people but usually don’t execute according to the MSN.
However, MSN failed to notice that there is currently a pogrom against Christians taking place in the Sudan.
Appeals and vigils have not softened the stance of her prosecutors.
There were competing demonstrators for and against the decision.
“This is a decision of the law. Why are you gathered here?” one supporter asked, prompting an activist to retort: “Why do you want to execute Meriam? Why don’t you bring corruptors to the court?”
The Embassies of the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, and the Netherlands gave their usual weak condemnation. We don’t know if they also tweeted their disdain.
They called “upon the Government of Sudan to respect the right to freedom of religion, including one’s right to change one’s faith or beliefs, enshrined in international human rights law as well as in Sudan’s own 2005 Interim Constitution.” They also urged “Sudanese legal authorities to approach Ms. Meriam’s case with justice and compassion that is in keeping with the values of the Sudanese people” and expressed concern “over the brutal sentence that could be faced with respect to the finding of adultery.”
“We need the U.S. and others to pressure the Government of Sudan to release my wife and son and cancel the charges against her,” Meriem’s husband Wani said.
Where are the women libbers? Where’s Gloria Steinem? They only come out over birth control and abortion?
What does Sandra Fluke think? Probably nothing at all.
This is the face of the faux war on women:
