Balqis blogged about this, and having followed the link and read up on it I'm blogging too.
Obviously, I am not on the inside of the courts, and cannot vouch for what is what. My point is that the courts should have a chance to hear from her, and from her Ex-Husband and decide what is in the best interests of the children. To deport her before she is given a fair hearing is a grave miscarrage of justice.
The following is Excerpted from the website linked below, and is according to Kahdijah's american family:
Khadijah Heather Jones is an American citizen born in St Louis Mo. She has3 children. Zakaria, Amani, and Yosef. Heather went to St. Louis to be with herfamily, and receive cancer treatments and her children were with her on the trip stateside. When she returned to Oman, her father assisted her in traveling with the three children. When they were picked up at the airport, they were separated into 2 cars. This is where Jamal abducted the children. Her husband, Jamal Mohammed AlBalushi then told Heather he was divorcing her.
Jamal has threatened her life repeatedly. One time in front of US Embassywitnesses. Jamal pursued her in a car chase, Heather drove to US Embassy grounds where the guards there protected her, her father and the children behind Embassy gates. Suffice to say, there are many harrowing occurrences. There are too many to enumerate now. Bottom line is this, she is was forced out of the home, forced out of her job, and now looks at being forced out of the country without her children. She will not be able to enter Oman again, and due to the actions of Jamal canceling the kids American passports, the kids are not able to leave Oman.
