Pregnant Sudanese Christian Woman Meriam Yehya Ibrahim Faces Death Sentence in Sudan for Converting From Islam … She Refused to Recant her Faith Declaring, “I am a Christian, and I will remain a Christian.”
TAKE A LOOK AMERICA AT THE REAL WAR ON WOMEN AND WHO IS DOING IT, HINT … IT IS NOT THE REPUBLICAN PARTY, ITS ISLAM.
27 year old Meriam Yehya Ibrahim, a wife and mother expecting another child, was sentenced to death by a Sudanese court for apostasy. The Court ruled that she is Muslim because her father was Muslim, even though she was raised Christian. The court ruled she left Islam and therefore the pregnant Meriam is subject to receive 100 lashes for adultry and then be hanged. Before imposing this heinous sentence, the court gave her an opportunity to recant her Christian faith, but Elnabi said Ibrahim refused to do so, declaring: “I am a Christian, and I will remain a Christian.”
“We gave you three days to recant but you insist on not returning to Islam. I sentence you to be hanged,” Judge Abbas Mohammed Al-Khalifa told Mrs Ibrahim, addressing her by her father’s name, Adraf Al-Hadi Mohammed Abdullah.
Mrs Ibrahim also faces a sentence of flogging for adultery on the grounds that her marriage to a Christian man from South Sudan is considered void under Islamic law. She will be given 100 lashes. Because her father was Muslim, she was considered by the court to be the same.
Oh wait Sharia law is pro-woman after all … it prohibits the execution of pregnant women. Instead, the sentence is delayed until two years after lactation. UNREAL.
Ibrahim’s lawyer, Mohamed Jar Elnabi, said that he plans to ask an appeals court to review the sentence, and could file the request as soon as Sunday. Elnabi argues that Sudan’s constitution allows religious conversion without restriction.
On Thursday, a Khartoum court convicted Ibrahim of apostasy, or the renunciation of faith, and sentenced her to death.
Ibrahim was born to a Sudanese Muslim father and an Ethiopian Orthodox mother. Her father left when she was 6, and she was raised by her mother as a Christian.
Her lawyer, Mohamed Jar Elnabi, said the case started after Ibrahim’s brother filed a complaint against her.
The brother alleged Ibrahim had gone missing for several years and that her family was shocked to find she had married a Christian man.
Because her father was Muslim, the Sharia law court considered her to be the same. It refused to recognize her marriage to a Christian and also convicted her of adultery, with an additional sentence of 100 lashes.
The death ruling for Ibrahim drew condemnation from Western embassies in the Sudanese capital, Khartoum, and international rights groups, including Amnesty International.
When are people going to comprehend that Muslim Sharia Law cares little about woman and Islam has nothing to do with freedom of religion.
“The Embassies of the United States of American, the United Kingdom, Canada and the Netherlands in Khartoum express their deep concern over the apostasy ruling handed down on Sunday in the trial of Meriam Yahia Ibhrahim Ishag,” said a statement posted on the website of the U.S. Embassy in Khartoum.
“We call upon the Government of Sudan to respect the right to freedom of religion, including one’s right to change one’s faith or beliefs, a right which is enshrined in international human rights law as well as in Sudan’s own 2005 Interim Constitution,” the statement added.
Background of this atrocity … Her own brother ratted her out, who filed a complaint against her, alleging that she had gone missing for several years and that her family was shocked to find she had married a Christian man.
Amnesty International said Ibrahim was arrested and charged with adultery in August 2013 after a family member reportedly claimed that she was committing adultery because of her marriage to a Christian South Sudanese man.
Under Sudan’s Islamic Shari’a law, a Muslim woman is not permitted to marry a non-Muslim man, thus any such marriage is considered to be adultery. The court later added the charge of apostasy when Ibrahim asserted that she was a Christian and not a Muslim.

Boko Haram Claims Responsibility For Kidnapping More Than 200 Missing Nigerian Girls … Islamist Militant Terrorist Leader Says … “I Will Sell Them … Allah Says I Should Sell”
THE REAL WAR ON WOMEN …
Abubakar Shekau, man claiming to be the Boko Haram leader has claimed responsibility for the mass kidnapping of over 200 Nigerian girls. In a video tape the Muslim Islamist militant leader said, “I abducted your girls. I will sell them in the market, by Allah. There is a market for selling humans. Allah says I should sell.” Over 200 girls were abducted on April 14, 2014 when a school in north-east Nigeria was attacked by members of the Islamist group Boko Haram, whose name means “Western education is forbidden,” in Chibok.
And of course Islam is a religion of peace.
About 230 girls are still believed to be missing, prompting widespread criticism of the Nigerian government.
The Boko Haram insurgency has left thousands dead since 2009.
The girls were taken from their boarding school in Chibok, in the northern state of Borno, on the night of 14 April.
“I abducted your girls. I will sell them in the market, by Allah,” a man claiming to be Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau said in a video first obtained by Agence France-Presse.
“There is a market for selling humans. Allah says I should sell. He commands me to sell. I will sell women. I sell women,” he continued, according to a CNN translation from the local Hausa language.
Boko Haram is a terrorist group receiving training from al Qaeda affiliates, according to U.S. officials. Its name means “Western education is sin.” In his nearly hour long, rambling video, Shekau repeatedly called for Western education to end.
Democrats would tell you that the GOP is conducting a war on women. Sorry, but you trivialize the actual war on woman and their exploitation that is taking place in the world no different than Democrats fauz cries of racism just because someone may disagree with Obama’s policies. As Legal Insurrection states, take a real good look at the real war on women courtesy of Islamists.
CNN Poll: Obamacare Support Drops To An All-Time Low … The New War on Woman, Opposition to Obamacare Rose 6 Points Among Women to 60% from 54% in November
Welcome to the new ‘War on Woman’ … No wonder Barack Obama couldn’t get away to Hawaii fast enough.
According to the most recent CNN poll, support for Obamacare has reached an all-time low as only 62% oppose Barack Obama’s signature piece of legislation, while just 35% are in favor of it. OUCH!!! The numbers are getting so bad for Obamacare that this is no longer just a problem for Obama and Democrats, but instead a toxic disaster. Making matters even worse for Obama and Democrats, if possible, “opposition to Obamacare rose six points in December among women, from 54% in November to 60%”. It appears that 15% of socialists think that Obamacare is not liberal enough. To those we say, there is always Cuba to live in.
62% opposition is not only a rejection of the implementation of Obamacare, it is a rejection of the product, compounded by the fact that Barack Obama lied to the American People.
Talk about a great ad for Southwest Air … Obamacare failure … ‘Wanna Get Away’?
Only 35% of those questioned in the poll say they support the health care law, a 5-point drop in less than a month. Sixty-two percent say they oppose the law, up four points from November.
Nearly all of the newfound opposition is coming from women.
“Opposition to Obamacare rose six points among women, from 54% in November to 60% now, while opinion of the new law remained virtually unchanged among men,” CNN Polling Director Keating Holland said. “That’s bad news for an administration that is reaching out to moms across the country in an effort to make Obamacare a success.”
Jammie Wearing Fool reminds us that today us Happy Healthcare Day and the deadline to sign up for Obamacare to have coverage for January 1, 2014. Then again as they say, what difference does it make as Obama will just arbitrarily and illegally change the rules anyhow. Yes he will.
Ain’t No Way to Treat a Media … Obama Administration Calls Female Reporter a “B*tch, C*nt, A**hole” For Asking Tough Questions
Call it an Obama ‘War on Woman’ a ‘War on the Media’ and ‘War on Freedom of the Press’.
Has the media bloom finally come off the Barack Obama rose? Is the MSM finally going to do their job and hold the Obama administration accountable for their actions, policies and agenda? Via Jammie Wearing Fools comes the following accounts of how the vile Team Obama treats the media and namely woman. Forget the threats that veteran journalist Bob Woodward received from the Obama gang, what about the stories from liberal journalist Jonathan Alter? He recounts the time that a young female reporter was asking tough, important questions of an Obama Cabinet secretary when she was bullied by Team Obama. Jonathan Alter stated to the NY Post, “She was doing her job”, and they [Team Obama] were trying to bully her. In an e-mail, they called her the vilest names — “b*tch, c*nt, a**hole.”
Finally, this week, reporters are pushing back. Even Jonathan Alter — who frequently appears on the Obama-friendly MSNBC — came forward to say he, too, had been treated horribly by the administration for writing something they didn’t like.
“There is a kind of threatening tone that, from time to time — not all the time — comes out of these guys,” Alter said this week. During the 2008 campaign swing through Berlin, Alter said that future White House press secretary Robert Gibbs disinvited him from a dinner between Obama and the press corps over it.
“I was told ‘Don’t come,’ in a fairly abusive e-mail,” he said. “[It] made what Gene Sperling wrote [to Woodward] look like patty-cake.”
“I had a young reporter asking tough, important questions of an Obama Cabinet secretary,” says one DC veteran. “She was doing her job, and they were trying to bully her. In an e-mail, they called her the vilest names — bitch, c–t, a–hole.” He complained and was told the matter would be investigated: “They were hemming and hawing, saying, ‘We’ll look into it.’ Nothing happened.”
As we always say, where there is smoke there is fire and when there is one cockroach on the floor, there are hundreds in the walls. The MSM is starting to spill the beans and come clean on this vile Chicago-style thug presidential administration that has disdain for a free press and like to threaten the media to keep them in line. If the MSM ever decided to abandon Obama altogether and report on him like they would a Republican president, his approval rating would sink into the 20′s.
What Hypocrisy … Candy Crowley Asks Does it Matter if There is a Lack of Diversity In Obama Cabinet Matter?
Yet another example of media double standard and the demise of the MSM …
Just when you thought there could not be any more hypocrisy from the liberal MSM, they outdo themselves. It is simply amazing just how far they have sold their journalistic integrity when covering Barack Obama. The latest example is their coverage of Obama’s lack of diversity in his Cabinet picks. On CNN’s State of the Union this weekend, host Candy Crowley began a segment on Obama’s lack of diversity in his Cabinet picks by asking her guests, “Does it matter?”
CANDY CROWLEY: There is a lot made about the president’s latest picks in the cabinet. Jack Lew, Senator Hagel, Senator Kerry in key positions here. Treasury, defense, state department. Something that your colleague Congressman Rangel said about the lack of diversity in the cabinet thus far. I’m sorry. Yeah, he said, “It’s embarrassing as hell,” his words. “We’ve been through all of this with [2012 GOP presidential nominee] Mitt Romney. And we were very hard with Mitt Romney with the women binder and a variety of things. And I kind of think there’s no excuse with the second term.” He was talking about where are all these, and there was a White House cabinet picture, a photo that went out and it was kind of astonishing in its white male variety. First of all, does it matter?
What a joke, even Democrat US Rep. Charlie Rangel from New York realizes it is an issue, yet those in the MSM like Candy Crowley who continually carry the water for Obama suddenly have a change of heart when it comes to holding Obama accountable. From Mediaite, Representative Elijah Cummings (D-MD) said that “it does matter” but noted “it’s a little bit early” to judge, because not all the cabinet positions have been filled. All during the 2012 Presidential election the MSM accused the GOP of a “war on woman” and continually accuse the Republic party as being one of white men. Yet, when Barack Obama does the same with his Cabinet, the media asks whether diversity matters. UNREAL. It is simply shameful that a media would provide Obama a pass when we all know that if and when a Republican is the president and did the same thing, they would be calling for diversity.
For the MSM diversity does matter, as long as Barack Obama is not President. They have sold their journalistic souls to be Obama’s propaganda machine.
RUT-ROH BARACK … Women are turning on Obama.
President Barack Obama goes into the Democrat National Convention on a polling low as his popularity wanes. Only 47% of registered voters in the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll see Obama favorably overall, down 7% from April. The most startling data is the fact that Obama has lost all of his popularity among woman and is now underwater with them. So much for Romney’s gender gap. So much for Obama and the Democrats claiming that the GOP is waging a war on women. Looks like it has backfired.
Full poll results HERE.
Barack Obama approaches his nomination for a second term with the lowest pre-convention personal popularity of an incumbent president in ABC News/Washington Post polls since the 1980s. He’s also at his lowest of the year among registered voters, with trouble among women.
Just 47 percent of registered voters in the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll see Obama favorably overall, down 7 percentage points from his recent peak in April, while 49 percent rate him unfavorably. He’s numerically underwater in this group for the first time since February.
The decline has occurred entirely among women registered voters – from 57-39 percent favorable-unfavorable in April to a numerically negative 46-50 percent now. That’s Obama’s lowest score among women voters – a focus of recent political positioning – in ABC/Post polls since he took office.
As stated at Blue Crab Boulevard, isn’t it fitting that Obama is now underwater, so many Americans mortgages are under water and the Dems at the DNC is at this moment showing a tribute to Ted Kennedy. Someone else who left someone underwater. OUCH!!!
Black Caucus Chairman Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.) Calls Democrats For Claims GOP is Waging ‘War on Women’ & WI Gov. Scott Walker Comparisons to Hitler
Prominent Democrat calls Obama’s “War on Woman” comments absurd and a made up premise …
US Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO) called out Democrats over the weekend and condemned them for making such charges like Republicans are engaged in a “War on Woman”. When directly asked whether it was wrong for Democrats to claim that the GOP is conducting a war on woman Cleaver responded, “Yes, that is wrong, and I have never said it, not one time,” he said. “I condemn it. If it’s a Democrat, if it’s my cousin, then it’s wrong.” Cleaver called such comments damaging to the body politic. However, earlier in the show DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz was asked the same questions and responded with no direct answer while moving her lips. Debbie did all but say there was a war on woman. Cleaver also called such comparisons like GOP Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker to Hitler useless and unproductive.
The chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus, Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.), on Sunday condemned the charge by some Democrats that Republicans are engaged in a “war on women.”
Cleaver appeared on an Easter Sunday panel on CNN’s “State of the Union” to criticize the claim by some conservatives that the Obama administration is prosecuting a “war on religion” through its policy mandating that employees of religious organizations have access to contraception.
“We’ve got to quit exaggerating our political differences,” Cleaver said. He pointed out that he had condemned fellow Democrats for comparing Wisconsin GOP Gov. Scott Walker to Adolf Hitler.
Who thinks that Cleaver will be getting a call from the Obama White House to cease and desist?
