Has our State Department started a hashtag yet for the soon-to-be-murdered Sudanese Christian mom?

posted at 6:41 pm on May 16, 2014 by Allahpundit

I’m stealing that question from Ace, as it deserves amplification. What are the criteria for “hashtag activism”? If the bleeding edge of U.S. diplomacy now involves moral posturing on Twitter in lieu of doing anything constructive, let’s at least be consistent about it. As with Boko Haram and the Nigerian schoolgirls, you have here a Christian female — pregnant, no less — being potentially brutalized and murdered by Islamist savages. Her husband is a U.S. citizen; his son is a U.S. citizen. Punishing her for her faith is as clear-cut a human-rights violation as exists. And yet, nothing on social media from State or the White House, which has been only too happy to showcase their well-meaning impotence for a good cause over the past few months. Ed noted yesterday that U.S. options in Sudan are severely limited; true, but the #BringBackOurGirls campaign created international pressure to act. If State took the lead on promoting awareness of Ibrahim’s ordeal, it would twist arms at the UN and among NGOs with more reach than we have to negotiate for her release. Instead, crickets.

Two possibilities here, neither one good. It could be that the White House is more skittish about starting a campaign on Ibrahim’s behalf than it was on behalf the Nigerian schoolgirls because this one deals more directly with religious conflict. The schoolgirls’ kidnapping was sectarian too — Islamists terrorizing Christian girls for getting an education — but it could be spun as an essentially secular issue involving the right of women to attend school and learn. There’s no way around the religious issue in Ibrahim’s case, in which case maybe the White House decided that a big PR push against Muslim apostasy laws is more trouble than it’s worth for America’s wider Middle East diplomacy. The other possibility is that Obama and Kerry have learned a hard lesson from Boko Haram about how “hashtag activism” can backfire. Politico noted the other day that Michelle Obama’s contribution to hashtagging was undertaken with some misgivings, as it risked inadvertently encouraging Boko Haram by publicizing their kidnap campaign. A terrorist outfit that’s getting attention from the White House is, by definition, a formidable outfit, and that’s good for their PR. Could be State has decided that promoting Ibrahim’s cause will create the same problem — Sudanese authorities, which enjoy a relationship of mutual loathing with the U.S., might enjoy the spotlight and resolve to take advantage by executing Ibrahim as a lesson to other Christians there. Lying low while quiet diplomacy plays out might be State’s best play. So much for hashtagging.

Hashtags are reserved for the big wars.

I wish my father were alive so that he could comment on president sissy pants. He was a man that I watched as a boy punch a man that made an off color remark to my mother. WWII and Korean vet. He put up with exactly zero sh!t and the world would be a better place with more like him. I doubt that Maddow’s sister would say anything around him.

The schoolgirls’ kidnapping was sectarian too — Islamists Muslims terrorizing enslaving Christian girls for getting an education to use them sexually —

I dont’ know about a hashtag, but there is a whitehouse petition demanding her release on pain of war.

I would support a raid by Delta force or the seals to grab her and her husband and bring them out, along with Bin Ladan’ng the judges who want to murder her.

The State Department has no interest in this case because the father is Christian and will not dare challenge Islam.

Christians are slaughtered every day by Muslims and nary a peep from Obama or his henchpeople.

Now, if Christians were slaughtering Muslims … well, Obama would send the military in.

Mr. Obama recalled the opening lines of the Arabic call to prayer, reciting them with a first-rate accent. In a remark that seemed delightfully uncalculated (it’ll give Alabama voters heart attacks), Mr. Obama described the call to prayer as “one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.”

I haven’t forgotten that. But I believe that was lip-service for monetary support. Has anyone fully investigated where his campaign money came from? Or does anyone care. He’s a muslim sympathizer but he’s a secularist. In his mind he prolly believes he is God. Evan Thomas sure did.

Sudan has no intention of killing an American citizen, but every intention of ransoming her life for cash. It shall be paid, in secret, and she’ll be miraculously freed by a merciful court.

I mean except for Syria . . . . . oh, and also Egypt … and Libya, and Jordan, and Turkey, and Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Oman, United Arab Emirates, Lebanon, Iraq, Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan, France, England, Denmark, Sweden, … and probably I should throw the Philippines in there, as well.

Keep in mind that this death sentence for apostasy (or blasphemy) is standard Islam (not “radical” Islam) as practiced for 14 centuries. The Islamic basis for this is described here.

Apostasy is legally punishable by death today in Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Iran, Sudan and Afghanistan. In other parts of the Muslim world apostates will be shunned by family and friends and occasionally murdered – per Islamic law execution doesn’t have to be formally court ordered.

We always have a few Muslims in the West telling us that Islam is really a tolerant & peaceful religion, as if all those tens of millions of Muslims over there just got it wrong while they just happen to get it right. And you’re suppose to believe them.

Chessplayer on May 16, 2014 at 7:50 PM

For the record, in case the State Department has overlooked it, the UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights has two articles which might be referenced in arguing that Sudan will be in violation of their membership requirement and may be sanctioned for this violation.

Article 16:
(1) Men and women of full age, without any limitation due to race, nationality or religion, have the right to marry and to found a family. They are entitled to equal rights as to marriage, during marriage and at its dissolution.
(2) Marriage shall be entered into only with the free and full consent of the intending spouses.
(3) The family is the natural and fundamental group unit of society and is entitled to protection by society and the State.

and

Article 18:
Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance.

Maybe these should be what is hashtagged. Of course highlighting these will cause more than Sudan to be caught up in the argument, since this is relevant to any country that uses Sharia Law as the governing legal text.

True. If she was a progressive left atheist communist union member community activist, i.e. someone of value, the Administration might not move heaven and earth but Michele would surely hashtag for her.

Got nothing to say about this poor Christian woman who is bound for martyrdom at the hands of Muslims?

No? Just defending the Administration against accusations of…what- doing nothing for this woman?

Or do you just want to change the subject entirely to Boko Haram and the big fat nothing the Administration and State are accomplishing there?

My advice: stay away entirely from the whole subject of Obama’s many foreign policy failures- there’s no hope of convincing anyone except your fellow bad-speller leftists.

Yes. We all know this. The pathetic aspect is that the Obama’s are in a position to actually do something to #bring back our girls (like send in the military). I.e., Obama is the person that the pressure is supposed to be on, but his political amd military impotence are such that he is reduced to having his wife tweet about it. If the US military isn’t going to #Bring back our girls, to whom are the tweets directed? Occupy Wall Street? Putin? You state that they are not directed to Boko Haram itself. Who is the big hero that is supposed to do the rescue if not the US, and if it is the US, why isn’t Obama doing it instead of tweeting about it? Pathetic.

Back in 2007, in an interview with Nicholas Kristof, then candidate Obama related his experiences growing up Muslim: ”

Mr. Obama recalled the opening lines of the Arabic call to prayer, reciting them with a first-rate accent. In a remark that seemed delightfully uncalculated (it’ll give Alabama voters heart attacks), Mr. Obama described the call to prayer as “one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.”

That folks is the shahada–and to believing Muslims, it’s proof that he is one of them. After all, reciting the shahada is all it takes to convert to Islam.

Mrs. Ishaq’s father had abandoned her mother before her birth. She was raised Christian by her mother and has never considered herself Muslim, according to Al Jezeera, she says she’s never committed apostasy. Al Jezeera link

There is NO question but that Pres. Obama’s girls are FAR more “Muslim” than this woman–after all, their father has been involved in their lives from day one–HAS recited the shahada, redirected NASA to reach out to Muslims spoken glowingly of the Qur’an and Islam in general oh and met and bowed to Saudi kings!
