Help Dr. Wafa Sultan

Important information from Brigitte Gabriel's Act! for America, on March 29, 2008:
Help Wafa Sultan-Send a Letter to the Qatar Embassy about her Death Fatwa

We posted on courageous Dr. Wafa Sultan's second al-Jazeera interview that included a debate with Egyptian Islamist, Tal'at Rheim on the republication of the Danish Mohammed cartoons. Subsequent to the March 4th Al-Jazeera interview, Egyptian Islamist Sheik al-Qaradawi issued a Fatwa against her.

Sultan and her family have gone into hiding.

Our ally, Bob Spencer of Jihad Watch has called Sultan " a national and international treasure". Having met Dr. Sultan, we agree.

Yesterday, we received email s from Joyce and Persia expressing concerns about the lack of 24/7 personal security protection for Dr. Sultan. Note that in Holland, Dutch Parliamentarian Geert Wilders received 24/7 security from his government with the release of his important film, "Fitna". Her safety is the equivalent of what the British government did for author Salman Rushdie when the Ayatollahs of the Islamic Republic of Iran issued a Fatwa calling for his death with the publication of his book, 'The Satanic Verses". Our government should consider doing the same for Dr. Sultan, an American citizen who is the subject of a death threat from an Islamist Cleric, Sheik al-Qarawadi.

She asked us to help her by submitting a letter to the Embassy of Qatar. Qatar hosts the 24/7 Arab language satellite TV channel Al-Jazeera....

I had no idea. The last I heard Dr. Sultan was living in California with her family. She was on a Fox News Channel special tonight on home grown terrorism. This is terrible.

Wafa Sultan has been exercising her God-given right to Freedom of Speech. The government's job is to protect her against those who would try to kill her for exercising her right. That's the first responsibility of our government.
