Meriam Ibrahim, the Sudanese pregnant woman who was sentenced to death by stoning and hanging for converting to Christianity from Islam, continues to be harass by the local government. After global public outcry demanding she not be put to death and be freed, judges in the Sudanese court stated she may give birth to her child first, then face death by stoning and hanging.

As international outcry grew, especially on social networking, where many condemned the actions of the Sudanese court (I called for sanctions against them on Twitter) they relented and freed Ibrahim, only to arrest her once again on false charges they’ve trumped up. Ibrahim was freed again on bail and took refuge in the U.S. embassy in Sudan. Ibrahim’s husband, Daniel, is an American citizen and she should be allowed to be with him in America. If Sudan does not let her go, the government should face serious financial sanctions.

I am a Christian, have been my whole life and no matter what, will continue in the faith (Christianity). However, I understand others have the right to religious freedom and can practice whatever religion they choose. This should be a right in every nation and one that is not infringed by others, with people being threatened with death over their religion.

This month, 85 Christians in Peshawar, Pakistan were killed in a suicide bombing attack at the All Saints Church. The attack was carried out by the Taliban, via two suicide bombers. It led to the three-day closure of “mission schools.” Pakistanis protested the gruesome incident, demanding protection for Christians in the nation.

Pakistan Christians Issue Call for Protection

Published: September 23, 2013 – LONDON — With its Muslim-style minarets topped by a large black cross, the All Saints Church in Peshawar has for more than a century offered a daring architectural expression of Muslim-Christian harmony and cohabitation. This is how the Taliban destroyed it: two suicide bombers rushed the church doors as worshipers streamed out on Sunday. One attacker exploded his vest inside, the other just outside…

Taliban Kills Defenseless Christian Woman

October 31, 2008

Gayle Williams, a peaceful, unarmed Christian woman was gunned down by two members of the Taliban.

The Taliban once again reminded the western world what it’s about when two of its terrorists murdered a Christian woman by gunning her down. They will never get sympathy from the world engaging in such unprovoked acts of violence. It only reaffirms world governments’ views they are a threat.

First picture of British woman aid worker gunned down by Taliban motorbike killers ‘for spreading Christianity’

A British woman aid worker was shot dead in Afghanistan today by Islamic extremists because she was a Christian. Two men rode up to Gayle Williams, 34, on a motorcycle and one opened fire at close range, hitting her seven times in the head and legs.

Ms Williams, from London, had been walking to work in an affluent suburb of the capital Kabul and was said to have died before the police reached the scene. The attack was seen by children going to school….

Ms Williams was a volunteer with the British-registered-Christian charity Serve Afghanistan, which works with the disabled. The Taliban claimed responsibility for the shooting, saying on its website: ‘Our people carried out this attack. The reason that we killed her was because she was spreading Christianity.’

PUBLIC FEEDBACK:

Oh, you brave, brave warriors, to take on a simple unarmed female aid worker with a gun like that. How proud you must feel, it only took two of you, armed with a gun, to kill a woman… and then you ran away, like scared little animals, to hide. How brave. How fierce. How mighty. What great soldiers you are.

You are ridiculous little men. Your ancestors look upon you with shame and horror, so low have you fallen… – Maggie, Strood, Kent, 20/10/2008 16:46

The Taliban are fanatical lunatics. If they were in schools here, teachers would know that they needed help because of their pathetic, immature stupidity. Why does everyone still try to make sense out of them? It’s impossible. – Anthony Reid, Stockport UK, 20/10/2008 16:41

I am sick and tired of these animals getting away with murder like this. Who do they think they are? – Diane, Bradford, West Yorkshire, 20/10/2008 16:40

Former Muslim Man Terrorized For Becoming A Christian

 April 30, 2008

Nissar Hussein

A former Muslim man Nissar Hussein is being terrorized in Britain. He is being harassed and threatened by Muslims in his area for converting from Islam.

In Britain there is freedom of religion and he does have the right to choose. I encourage Nissar to stick with his faith in Jesus, even in the face of persecution:

British Muslim ‘bullied’ for becoming a Christian

A British man who was attacked after converting to Christianity from Islam was told by police to “move to another place”, it has emerged.  A British man who was attacked after converting to Christianity from Islam was told by police to “move to another place”, it has emerged.

Nissar Hussein, 43, from Bradford, West Yorkshire converted from Islam to Christianity with his wife, Qubra, in 1996. A report by Christian Solidarity Worldwide, quoted in the Times, says he was subjected to a number of attacks and, after being told that his house would be burnt down if he did not return to Islam, alerted the police.

Muslim Baptized By The Pope In Danger

March 31, 2008

This month, a former Muslim, Magdi Allam, was baptized by the Pope. Subsequently, he says his life is in danger due to the conversion of faith. I would like to wish him well in his new life:

Muslim baptized by pope says life in danger

VATICAN CITY (Reuters) – A Muslim author and critic of Islamic fundamentalism who was baptized a Catholic by Pope Benedict said on Sunday Islam is “physiologically violent” and he is now in great danger because of his conversion.

“I realize what I am going up against but I will confront my fate with my head high, with my back straight and the interior strength of one who is certain about his faith,” said Magdi Allam.

In a surprise move on Saturday night, the pope baptized the 55-year-old, Egyptian-born Allam at an Easter eve service in St Peter’s Basilica that was broadcast around the world.

The conversion of Allam to Christianity — he took the name “Christian” for his baptism — was kept secret until the Vatican disclosed it in a statement less than an hour before it began…
