Will Asia Bibi Get Out of Pakistan Alive?

"They were harvesting fruit when a row broke out about a bucket of water. The women said that because she had used a cup, they could no longer touch it, as her faith had made it unclean."

Asia Bibi is a Christian Pakistani woman who has spent 8 years on death row accused of committing blaspheming against Islam and the Prophet Mohammad. This past week, Pakistan's Supreme Court overturned her conviction calling it based on flimsy evidence. Now Asia is trying to find a country (like the UK or US) willing to give her asylum from Pakistan's unpredictable legal system as well as the savage mobs in the streets screaming for her head.

I would like to see the US offer her refuge. Asia is an example of a true refugee, a  Christian whose life isn't worth a cent in her own dysfunctional country.

Imagine. This is what's going on all over Pakistan as we speak.
