Editorial Christian pastor and father of two is set to be executed they -- going to hang him.
Why well he dared to leave the Islamic convert to christianity it's happened in Iran and that's actually only the beginning it's not an isolated case a war on Christians is spreading throughout the Muslim world Christians have been murdered -- -- machetes -- jail burned forced to their homes you name it.
It is happening to them.
Reverend Franklin Graham has seen it firsthand.
His -- -- samaritans purse is helping displaced Christians in the Sudan.
Sudan's military recently bombed -- Bible school built by samaritans purse reverend Graham joins us next sister.
Could review I'm I'm before -- up big picture want to talk about this that pastor in.
He -- to become a Christian.
Greta good group of go according to court records what we can determine.
He never was a Muslim his parents promotional.
And he proved it was a Christian.
I think his age nineteen what -- -- him on as a pasta cereal under Islamic law and this is it's called Sharia law.
This is this is what he's been charged with four.
For converting to christianity has since he hadn't been a Muslim.
They're they're -- hanging me anyway because his parents were -- and so therefore.
He's been -- he's been sentenced to death because his -- from some but he was never emotional.
What even if he had been a Muslim.
And he converted and -- that would be appalling forget the fact that doesn't you know that did they say that did you know that your conversion is where is what and he makes you eligible for execution.
But he means it's just sort of the idea that that that a man or woman just decides to convert to christianity from another -- Muslim.
Well -- I needed to and you get any get.
Hanging there there there's there's there's millions of Muslims out there that don't agree with us they're wonderful people grow up.
But they're under the system of -- all they can get out from under because the law of the Koran demands of a person leaves this -- there to be killed there there -- given a chance to move to recount.
And they convict -- they can reverse this but they don't recant -- they don't announce their faith.
What -- like from this man was told renounce -- faith in Jesus Christ but he refused to do it and so therefore they're gonna hanging.
But this is that this is the law sure re senators -- a scary.
And sure real long governs all of life reform assault it's it's it's political it's military -- economic -- real long governs everything.
And so they do that in no western law has recognized it's only -- -- law.
And and this of course nothing that does the United States can do for this pastor in Iraq and you've got enough problems with the Reinemund -- -- are typically the dead.
I think -- -- -- -- over the the president could could he could call for permitting you have to but it White House he could he could make a statement.
So we apologize to to the Afghans because of Koran was mistakenly burned in this Koran had been -- smuggling now messages out of Monroe prison.
And what he apologizes.
To the Afghans after an Afghan soldier killed two Americans.
But why does he speak out.
He could he could use the power of the White House to call -- stood together at the White House and have a permit for this guy.
But he hasn't done it.
Out you know what we talk about this one case we see the picture with a -- was horrified but the Newsweek cover this week out and hold it up on it this is -- Then what's happening to this man is -- particular and you -- it talks about the war on Christians.
In in Newsweek and and they writer goes through many situations -- -- Current.
-- we have we have people in the Sudan well right now.
They're they're being bombed.
Do it's it's almost every day.
And if so that they're probably civilians not military targets a civilian targets.
-- because many of them as their faith in Jesus Christ of the Nubian people are mix between Muslim and Christian.
And they're they're black Africans and the north is for the most part -- it's a race war and Arabs are trying to kill the blacks and and on the mall for a plan.
And the world is saying very little about this -- -- and that.
It breaks my heart we've got a lot of friends I've done a few years ago the Muslims burned over a thousand churches -- the south Sudan.
There in the Nuba mountains wouldn't go back come out 356.
In these churches and already to Begin to burn them again.
And you -- -- -- to a video in the New York Times in New York Times website sounds which which shows video from the area and it's it's breathtaking it's a Harlem.
It is then don't appreciate very much the New York Times us and in a report America and the -- Christoph.
To -- to document this.
In terms of this and generate -- for what you think that with the south Sudan Sudan that president can be both leaders.
Would go very far you would -- president this year has told me on several occasions he would.
He's one of the guys well there's a lot of bad guy weighs under indictment by the international criminal court and they hear us and him but he -- said America has to be engaged in this in America's -- morning.
-- have a cure in this and the south the president's office at the same thing the United States has to be engaged.
You know Jimmy Carter do about it -- he took -- a big risk when he invited.
-- -- And -- -- to come.
To Camp David two to hammer out a piece.
Treaty between Israel and need to know involved or whatever happened.
And he did it because both sides -- weary of war both sides want a piece.
I think both sides want peace and they're wary of it but if someone like our president I think you could do it.
Brought them here to to Washington sat down at Camp David and I have been hammered out -- peace deal this thing can be solved.
