Christian nun from Nineveh denied visa to testify before Congress. A Limerick. Update: Visa granted thanks to pressure from the American People.

Sister-Diana-MomekaA Nineveh nun fled from ISIS,

deny her a visa not wise is.

For she would testify

before Congress, and why

Islam – Peace the biggest of lies is.

Background:

A leading conservative is asking why the Obama State Department is barring a persecuted Iraqi nun from entry into the United States to share her message about the brutal treatment of Christians in her country.

Nina Shea of the Hudson Institute’s Center for Religious Freedom, writes in a National Review op-ed that Sister Diana Momeka is “an internationally respected and leading representative of the Nineveh Christians who have been killed and deported by ISIS.”

Yet this nun is being “barred from coming to Washington to testify about this catastrophe?”

Sister Diana was the only Christian in the delegation and the only member blocked from the trip, the Washington Times reported, leading some of her American supporters to question why she was singled out.

Shea, in her op-ed titled “With Malice Toward Nun,” exposed the real reason why Obama denied the visa for Sister Diana.

“Sister Diana Momeka of the Dominican Sisters of Saint Catherine of Siena was informed on Tuesday by the U.S. consulate in Erbil that her non-immigrant-visa application has been rejected.

“The reason given in the denial letter, a copy of which I have obtained, is:
‘You were not able to demonstrate that your intended activities in the United States would be consistent with the classification of the visa.’”

Update: Pressure from outraged Newsmax TV viewers and others has forced the State Department to reverse course and grant a visa allowing an Iraqi nun into the United States to speak out about “Christian genocide” in the Middle East, author Johnnie Moore revealed Friday on “Newsmax Prime.”

In an interview with host J.D. Hayworth, Moore credited Newsmax TV viewers with helping to put enormous pressure on the Obama administration to allow Dominican Sister Diana Momeka to come to Washington to talk about the persecution of Christians in her war-torn nation.

“Newsmax made the first call to contact government officials, and I’m absolutely convinced that we wouldn’t have seen the response that we saw had Newsmax not stepped up. I’m incredibly grateful for what you did,” Moore said.
