Dear Mr. President,
The indigenous church in Sudan is a vital American interest because the church confronts the forces of Islamic extremism every day with the Gospel message of mercy, reconciliation, and peace. This influence is having a major transformative effect on society — and that makes America and the world safer.
Right now, two Christian men are sitting in a Sudan prison. One is a pastor, the other is a student from Darfur.
Both have been found guilty of ungrounded crimes, and sentenced to long prison terms. Rev. Hassan Abdelrahim Kodi, and Abdelmoneim Abdelmoula, were each given 12-year sentences for standing in solidarity with the persecuted church in Sudan.
We have seen the brutality of the Islamist regime in Khartoum in the trial of Miriam Ibrahim, who was under sentence of death in 2014 for allegedly “converting” to Christianity. She was only released after intense international pressure and is now safe in the United States.
We ask that you intervene and exert your influence on behalf of the men who are imprisoned, demand that they be released, and that Omar al Bashir’s government begin to respect the basic human right of conscience for all Sudanese citizens.
The Sudan Government has been desperately trying to gain “normalized” relations with the West. It needs to be told in no uncertain terms will “normalization” occur while people are targeted, imprisoned, tortured, and otherwise persecuted for their ethnicity, political affiliation, or religious faith.
