War on women

Daniel Wani, an American citizen living in New Hampshire, was not able to celebrate Father’s Day with his wife and two tiny American children.

They cower in a filthy, bug-infested prison thousands of miles away in Sudan, where the mother, Meriam Ibrahim, is chained to a prison cell wall.

After weaning her newborn baby, she is sentenced to receive 100 lashes and then be hung by the neck till dead unless she renounces her Christian faith.

Finally last week, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry publicly condemned Sudan’s conviction and imprisonment of Ibrahim, but only after more than 380,000 people signed a petition demanding that Sudan release the mother of two and urging the Obama administration’s action in her case.

The president needs to leverage this nation’s hundreds of millions of dollars in foreign aid to win the release of two American children who will otherwise die in a prison with an infant mortality rate of one per day.

The situation is even more desperate now as some British papers report that the 27-year-old wife of American Daniel Wani could be flogged within days if her appeal is thrown out.

This real “war on women” is a barbaric practice that leaves its victims screaming and pleading for their lives with skin torn from their bodies.

Daniel’s brother Gabriel says the 100 lashes can kill, “while others hover ‘in bad condition’ until they are executed.”
