Islamic judge orders pregnant girl to be hanged for being Christian

KHARTOUM, Sudan, May 15, 2014– A Sudanese judge has sentenced a twenty-seven-year old, pregnant Christian woman to be hung for apostasy, which is the renunciation of one’s religion. Before Mariam Yahia Ibrahim Ishag (her Christian name) is to be executed, the judge ordered she be given 100 lashes. Despite Western protest, the execution is scheduled to move forward.

“We gave you three days to recant but you insist on not returning to Islam,” Judge Abbas Mohammed Al-Khalifa told the woman on Thursday while addressing her by her father’s Muslim name, Adraf Al-Hadi Mohammed Abdullah.

“I sentence you to be hanged to death.”

Protesters demonstrated against the verdict. These protesters were met by another group that supported the verdict.

“It’s not only Sudan. In Saudi Arabia, in all the Muslim countries, it is not allowed at all for a Muslim to change his religion,” said Ahmed Bilal Osman, Sudan’s information minister, while speaking to AFP news on Wednesday.

Syrian Woman Blasts Senator McCain Over Supporting Al Qaeda

At a town hall meeting a Syrian immigrant blasts John McCain (R-AZ) over supporting the Syrian rebels who have ties to Al Qaeda. John McCain’s body language says it all. He initially refuses to make eye contact with the woman who stands begging before him less than a foot away from his face. “My cousin was killed last week!” Her words are strong, passionate and true. “We do not want another engagement in the Middle East. We do not want Al Qaeda to take over,” she screams. McCain simply looks away as if he is more concerned with getting back to his iPhone poker game. He even laughs at one point.


John McCain’s counter was simple. “I’ve been to Syria too,” he says. He provides no real substance other than an emotionally based argument that Assad is a butcher. John McCain joined only two other republicans in voting in favor of the Senate resolution to engage in a Syrian war. All eyes are now resting on the House to see how members will vote.
