To the Editor:
In the Sudan, Mariam Yahia Ibrahim Ishag, brought her punishment of death
upon herself, said Judge Abbas Mohammed Al-Khalifa: “We gave you three days to recant but you insist on not returning to Islam. I sentence you to be hanged to death.” For good measure, Judge Khalifa ordered the woman to be beaten with 100 lashes of the whip before being hung for “adultery.”
She’s nine months pregnant. They’ll permit her to give birth to her baby and wean it before executing her. However, the punishment for “adultery” — 100 lashes — will be administered immediately after the birth. (That’s awfully Muslim of them!)
The “adultery” in question is not adultery. Sharia does not recognize the marriage between the woman (whom it considers an apostate Muslim) and a Christian man, ergo, their sexual congress is “adultery.”
Oh, and her 20-month-old child is in jail with her. Because Sharia law will not permit the Christian husband–an American citizen–to care for a child they claim is Muslim. That wouldn’t be kosher.
I’m not hearing anything about this story except from right-leaning sources. We have, once again, an incredible outrage, barbaric, dehumanizing, and fascistic, but the villains are wrong. The villains aren’t the villains the left prefers–like Boko Haram. Ergo, the outrage must be tacitly permitted. And, it involves three hundred girls and young women–most of whom were Christian–before converting to Islam at gun point. I agree with the attempt to save the 300 girls in NIgeria. But, what Sharia Law does to thousands of young women one at a time doesn’t give the liberals #cover.
Has the State Department even taken the drastic step of issuing a vigorous #Hashtag? It is doing NOTHING while Christians are being killed. Where is Michelle Hussein Obama holding a “#Stop Sharia Law–Bring Back Our Humanity” sign?
