‘Are we dead inside’: Pregnant Sudanese woman sentenced to death for Christian beliefs

On radio this morning, Glenn read a disturbing report involving Meriam Yehya Ibrahim, the Sudanese woman who was recently sentenced to death by hanging for refusing to renounce her Christian faith. According to her lawyers, Ibrahim, who is married to an American citizen, gave birth to a baby girl in a filthy prison cell in Khartoum, Sudan on Monday. After sharing the story Glenn had a simple question for his listeners: Are we dead inside?

Earlier this month, TheBlaze reported that Ibrahim and her 20-month old son were detained in a Sudanese prison after the 27-year-old refused to renounce her Christian faith.

Ibrahim became a Christian after her father, a Muslim, abandoned her family. After being raised by her Ethiopian mother, who is a Christian, Ibrahim adopted her mother’s faith. Ibrahim later married a Christian man named Daniel Wani. Wani is a U.S. citizen.

Shariah law in Sudan requires that children follow their father’s faith. Ibrahim was first arrested and charged with adultery in August 2013 and was later charged with apostasy in February 2014 after she said she was a Christian and not a Muslim.

The Daily Mail has spoken to Ibrahim’s husband, and he said he had been in contact with the American Embassy in Khartoum, but they refused to assist him.

“I thought this would be the one place which would help me, but they told me they didn’t have time to do anything. I was upset because now that I am American citizen I thought they would help me,” Wani told the Daily Mail. “I was threatened. They said ‘well your wife isn’t American, so we can’t help.’ I felt disgusted. My home is in America and still they won’t help. It’s getting uglier and it’s not going in the right direction.”

Furthermore, the Daily Mail lays out how these charges against Ibrahim came to be:

[Ibrahim’s] lawyer, Mohaned Mustafa Elnour, a Muslim, has received death threats for defending her but has already lodged an appeal. If he does not succeed at the Appeal Court, he will take the case to Sudan’s Supreme Court.

Mr Elnour said the case hinges around the testimony of two men who claim to be her brothers, and one woman who claims to be her mother.

In court they claimed that she had disappeared from the family home in a small village in the east of Sudan and then discovered her living in Khartoum, married to a Christian man.

But the lawyer said all three witnesses have proven to be liars because their evidence to the court has been highly contradictory.

He suggested that the trio are making up their story in an attempt to claim ownership of Meriam’s flourishing general store in a shopping mall on the outskirts of Khartoum.

Mr Elnour added: 'We can prove that Meriam’s mother died in 2012 and that the two others are definite fraudsters. But the court is not interested in our evidence.’

“Will we in America do anything? Are we so dead inside,” Glenn asked exasperatedly. “I mean I got on CNN and I said, ‘I will stand with the people who are trying to stop the hetero-fascists in Russia that say death to all homosexuals.’ I will stand with people I really, really don't like… much to their chagrin because we don't do this to people. We don't stone homosexuals. We don't kill people because of their beliefs. We don't do it.”

“If we don't stand for this, what do we stand for? ‘Well, we can't get involved in other people's country.’ Okay, that's fine. This is an American citizen,” he continued. “The father is going to lose the children because the father is Christian and the children cannot be raised by a Christian. I understand this is the Sudan, but these are Americans… We must stand for something.”

While everyone knows that this type of persecution is indefensible, Glenn feared man’s love for his fellow man has waxed cold.

“What is wrong with us? We just had a caller last hour. He said, ‘Our backs have been thrown up against the wall.’ You're damn right it has. Everybody's back is being thrown up against the wall – unless you are part of the elite power group,” Glenn concluded. “[But] you can only complain so long… Americans don't give up on things. Americans also don't strike out in anger and hatred… This is the truth. We are not here to slaughter you. We are here to have you realign yourself with truth.”

Glenn Beck: THIS is why Biden nominated Merrick Garland as attorney general

Many will remember President Biden's attorney general nominee Merrick Garland as the man Republicans refused to hold a Supreme Court confirmation hearing for back in 2016. So, was Garland's AG nomination just meant to be a slap in the face to Republicans? Glenn Beck thinks there's a lot more to it.

Given how focused Democrats are on rooting out vaguely defined "right-wing extremism," Garland's work in supervising the prosecution of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing suspects gives us a hint, Glenn suggested on radio this week. He said he's "all for" stopping dangerous extremists, but couldn't help noticing how Garland isn't talking about any of the destruction that happened over the summer.

"I am all for justice. I am all for making sure we catch the bad guys, as long as the bad guys are not defined to be on only one side," Glenn said. "Merrick Garland said [Monday] that there was no comparison between what happened on January 6th and what happened over the summer. That is because the Washington elites see themselves as better than somebody who owns a taco stand. I don't. The Constitution doesn't. They are the same crime."

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades. But what used to be wacky has now worked its way into the world's power structure. You must believe the science. You cannot question the science.

The Texas power failure provided America with a disturbing and deadly preview of the Great Reset. But Bill Gates, AOC, and other Democrats say this only proves we need to enforce MORE green policies.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck reveals how deep the Great Reset tentacles reach into government and business to strangle freedom and their efforts to control every aspect of your private life.

Why are we letting criminals out of prison while putting pastors in? Pastor James Coates of Canada's GraceLife Church was recently fined, arrested, and put in maximum security prison for violating lockdown rules.

Rebel News founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to discuss the story. Ezra said he's noticed a trend of government officials "picking on" Christians as "lockdownism" becomes almost a new kind of religion, and warned this might be just the start of more persecution to come.
