Christian Father Commits Suicide After ISIS Members Rape Wife And Daughter In Front Of Him Because He Couldn’t Pay Poll TaxJul 1st, 2014 | By Editor2
A Christian father who watched his wife and daughter get brutally raped by members of the militant group, Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) because he couldn’t pay them a poll tax in Mosul, Iraq, killed himself under the weight of the trauma this past weekend.
A report from the Assyrian International News Agency said ISIS began enforcing Islamic laws in the northern Iraq city which they overran on June 10.
Sudanese Christian Meriam Ibrahim, who faced death by hanging for “apostacy” against Islam, is currently living in safety at the U.S. Embassy in Khartoum.
Ibrahim had been released from prison earlier this week and thought she was free. When she and her family tried to get on a plane to leave Sudan, 40 security forces surrounded them and re-arrested her on bogus charges of forging travel documents. She was then re-released, but then sped off to the Embassy.
U.S. Senator Roy Blunt (Mo.) celebrated reports today that 27-year-old Meriam Ibrahim, the wife of an America citizen, will no longer face the death sentence and will be freed from captivity in Sudan. Ibrahim, who gave birth in jail and has been imprisoned with her two young children, previously faced the death sentence in Sudan after refusing to disavow her Christian faith.
The Religious Freedom Coalition is joining in the fight to #RescueMeriam Ibrahim from a Sudan prison. She faces 100 lashes and death by hanging for refusing to deny her faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.
The penalty of 100 lashes is for “adultery” (having sexual relations with her Christian husband). Death by hanging is for “apostacy” – leaving Islam.
Dozens of human rights and faith groups began demonstrating Thursday, June 12, in front of the White House for the release of Meriam Ibrahim, the 27-year-old mother of two sentenced to death for apostasy in Sudan.
Before her execution by hanging, she is to receive 100 lashes for her marriage to a South Sudanese Christian. ”Because the Shariah court in Khartoum considers her a Muslim, it does not recognize her marriage to Daniel Wani, who is an American citizen, originally from South Sudan,” said Faith J. H. McDonnell, an official of the influential Institute on Religion and Democracy.
A “We the People” petition drive has been launched on the White House website urging the Obama administration to take action on behalf of a Sudanese woman awaiting execution for the “crime” of converting from Islam to Christianity.
