An Iraqi Dominican nun known for her advocacy of religious minorities in the Middle East won’t be telling her story in Washington about terror and persecution under the Islamic State after the State Department denied her visa application to join a delegation to describe the situation in her home country.

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

The sister was told Tuesday by the U.S. consulate in Erbil that her application for a nonimmigrant visa had been rejected on the grounds that she was “not able to demonstrate that [her] activities in the United States would be consistent with the classification of the visa,” according to her denial letter. Sister Diana planned to speak with other representatives of persecuted minority groups in the region, including Yazidis and Turkmen Shia Muslims, at various venues in Washington for a period of about a week in mid-May.

      To Charles Snipes; Five more minutes with B.O in office brings less liberty to my pet chimp. IMPEACH, IMPEACH, IMPEACH!

  • James in Texas

    The Dept. of State has broken one of the “old Golden Rules” which was “You will find that many people may think that you are stupid. Do the right thing and don’t prove it for them”! This department has now proven that the are now the Department of Stupid, too the entire World! When did the Department of State last find any Nun working a side job of International Terrorist?????

  • IF YOUR WONDERING HOW OBAMA GOT RE ELECTED, REMEMBER THE YOUNG BLACKS ON T V AFTER THE FIRST ELECTION WHO SAID THAT THEY VOTED OVER 100 TIMES EACH FOR HIM, I WONDER HOW MANY DID THAT?

    he does not want the TRUTH about what his Muslim Brothers are actually doing to people in Syria, Iraq and Lebanon being told to the rest of the world. He is the Defacto Leader of ISIS. As long as he can hide the truth he will be able to keep importing his Radical Muslim Brotherhood Army into America under the lie of they are refugees just trying to escape the violence in the Middle East. Once he has imported enough of his soldiers, he will unleash them upon us. We must stand up and stop his evil plans NOW! He and his entire Muslim Brotherhood Administration should be remove from th Treason and convicted and then EXECUTE every last one of them to show and supporters left what we will do with TRAITORS.

    It doesn’t stop, it just doesn’t stop. Not likely to in the future either.

  • Gerry

    Our gov’t has become a total disgrace to the world. They have also become the biggest joke with obozo the head clown.

  • James Maxwell

    Stop anyone who might upset the apple cart and actually tell the truth about what is happening over there and the persecution of Christians and other non muzzies.
    This nun could speak first hand and tell the truth not some watered down o’muzzie approved version of the intolerance of the muzzie terrorist.

  • L.E. Liesner

    Denying the truth has become the norm for this Department of State. Why doesn’t the Congress invite her to speak to a joint session and defy this administration to block a visa. Of course that would take a little backbone from the so called leaders in the House and Senate.

    • Raymond Ambrozaitis

      When you look closely at Muslim Countries you will see they tend to share these values;

      They’re anti-abortion
      They are very supportive of the death penalty
      They oppose separation of Church and State
      They believe religious doctrine should be taught in schools
      They believe women should have fewer rights than men
      They oppose multiculturalism
      They consider homosexuality as evil and believe gay marriage should be outlawed.

      • Cactus Jack Hollis

        You are a joke, probably your parents were also which caused you to be. Something makes me believe you are an Obama supporter.

  • ChuckL

    OK, It is time for all of us to write to our representatives, except Harry Reid of course, and demand that they fix this autrocity.

    • Donald Mccormick

      I THINK that EVEYTHING about Obama is a LIE because every time I turn around I hear something else that contradicts something about him.

      When ever Obama TALKS, what he says usually becomes a LIE a few day or weeks later when we find out that things like health care when he SAID “WE COULD KEEP our doctors and our health care plans” and after he PUSHED through HIS IDEA of a HEALTH CARE plan, WE found out the NEW health care system would be VERY RESTRICTIVE and MOST people would have SPESIFIC HOSPITALS and SPESIFIC DOCTORS we HAD to go to GET our health care.

      He is a VERY CONTOLLING person and it SHOWS in what he does.

    If you want to know about Barack Obama you have to read about Frank Marshall Davis, the guy who was taking nudie pictures of his White mother just about the time she became pregnant with him. Then Google Obama giving a speech at a VA meeting that he was proud his father served in WWII. Then Google the ages of his alleged fathers and neither of them would have been old enough to have served in WWII. Then read his book “Dreams from my Father” which should have been titled “Dreams from my Real Father”, in which he talks about a mysterious mentor, a man called Frank. Then here how Frank was on the FBI’s list of potential Communists to be picked up in the event of war with the Soviet Union. Frank was a big supporter of Wealth Distribution, attacking rich corporations, and believed that America was a racist Country. As compared to whom, the Soviet Union whose human rights policies we should try to emulate? Obama’s mind has been so thoroughly corrupted by Frank Marshall Davis that he could not acknowledge any improvements in race relations of the past 20 years. According to him and Holder, Sharpton and Jackson, they are still Blacks hanging from trees in Georgia and Alabama. The South has changed dramatically yet they refuse to see any difference between today and when Davis was taking pictures of his nude mother.

    It is a refusal also to let go of the past that makes people not trust Blacks at times, it is the reason the Middle East is in constant turmoil, they have been fighting for the last 1000 years the same old grudges. What has it got them? Are they a more advanced society or are the living in the middle ages? Are their children safe and happy? We can venture down that road with Obama and Sharpton, or we can say today is a new chance for us all to forget past grievances and move forward together in a better brighter future. If all you can think about is something that happened 200 years ago then nothing will get better for you or society. Come folks this is America, acknowledge mistakes have been made on both sides and stop the racial games some Black leaders want you to play.

    She knocked at the wrong door! The nun should have gone through the Mexican door with a hood on and ISIS flag. Obama and Johnson would have had someone with body guards and a limousine pick her up, put her up in a fine hotel, & fly her 1st class to the white house.

    • ]ann

      she should be accepted, and if she was illegal, she would be. Being illegal Mexican or muslim, she would have been given the key to whatever city she wanted. Shame,

    • Gerry

      Podunk — you hit the nail squarely on the head. No post has been more accurate than yours. It is a pity that the people of this country have allowed such actions from our politicians. We need to rid our gov’t of all of the demoRAT and rino bast—s.

  • James Donohue

    It is hard to believe that the Obama administration would block a Christian Nun from informing us of the persecution of her religion in the Middle East. They must feel she is terrorist or a grave threat to Isis murderers.

    • MORT MASON

      Our president was born a Muslim, was raised a Muslim, and remains a Muslim. What more does one need to know?

    • sn

      Hard to believe???? obamy the muslim HATES anyone that IS NOT a muslim. She has a better shot at getting into the USSR. Just remember this when it is time to vote (if that ever happens again) what the demon-craps have done to OUR country.

    • punisher

      JAMES! HE’S A MUSLIM. THE AMERICAN PEOPLE NEED TO GET THIS THROUGH THERE HEADS. HE IS A JIHAD MUSLIM IN OUR WHITE HOUSE. HE WILL DO WHAT EVER IT TAKES BEHIND CONGRESS’S BACK TO TURN THIS COUNTRY INTO A ISLAMIC STATE. THE MUSLIM ARE TAKEING OVER THE WORLD. THE UK DOES NOT HAVE THE BALLS TO GET RID OF THE MUSLIM THAT HAVE TAKEN OVER THERE TOWNS. THEY USE SHARIA LAW AND THEY DON’T LET NON MUSLIMS IN THERE AREA. NOT 1 MOAQUE SHOULD GO UP IN THIS COUNTRY. THE ONES THAT ARE UP SHOULD BE BURNED TO THE GROUND. RESTURANTES SHOULD HAVE PORK ONLY ON THERE MENUES . A SPECIAL MENUE FOR ANY MUSLIM THAT WANTS TO EAT THERE.

    • Cactus Jack Hollis

      James Donohue , it may be hard for you to believe but anyone with more than an IQ of 75 has no difficulty believing it at all. You demoncraps have to be illiterate to support this pile of excreta.

  • Donald Berry

    Typical bull coming out of the Obama administration can’t believe all Americans can’t see what’s going on and how they are trying to ruin our country

  • Thatsa because Obama is the leader of ISIS and any thing but a Christian
