Sudan Christian woman Meriam Ibrahim, with her baby in her arms, is shown in the video below deplaning in Italy:
So we now have good reason to believe that Ibrahim is finally safe.
And who rescued this wife of an American citizen? Not the U.S. State Department but the Pope and the Italian government.
Here are some quotations from the Telegraph:
Meriam Ibrahim, the Christian woman who was spared a death sentence for apostasy and then barred from leaving Sudan, met Pope Francis on Thursday after arriving in Rome to jubilant scenes following intense international efforts to free her.
Father Federico Lombardi, the Vatican spokesman, described the meeting as “calm and affectionate” and said the Pope wanted it to be a “gesture of support to all those who suffer for their faith, and living in difficult or restrictive situations.”
Pope Francis met the couple at his Vatican residence after the 27-year-old landed at Rome’s Ciampino airport by surprise aboard an official Italian government aircraft with her husband and two young children early Thursday.
She was accompanied by Italy’s deputy minister for foreign affairs, Lapo Pistelli, who flew to Sudan to collect her late on Wednesday, after intense diplomatic negotiations from the Italian government and the Vatican ended her almost year-long ordeal.
Mr Renzi mentioned Ms Ibrahim’s case in his speech to inaugurate Italy’s six-month European Union presidency earlier this month.
“If there is no European reaction we cannot feel worthy to call ourselves ‘Europe’,” Mr Renzi said.
So if you are an expatriate U.S. citizen, and your wife and children are imprisoned because of her Christian faith… the Vatican and the Italian government will work tirelessly on your behalf!
What about “your own” State Department? Other than demand you submit a blood test to prove the children are yours, they won’t do anything at all! Even the British government will show more concern for your predicament than your own will. The White House, it seems, is too busy trying to recruit traitor-“Christians” to push homosexual marriage across the globe to give attention to a traditional Orthodox Christian.
We are not the only ones asking about the White House’s non-action and un-interest in this matter. Some in Congress tried to give her citizenship. As Ted Cruz asked, “Where is the President?”
