The Robert Hussein Case
Its Ramifications for U.S.-Kuwaiti Relations and International Law
George J. Gatgounis
Of the many influential religious-liberty cases with which the Rev. Dr. George Gatgounis, Esq., has been involved, his work through the Rutherford Institute as counsel on the Robert Hussein case in Kuwait is certainly one of the most compelling. Hussein was a Kuwaiti citizen sentenced to death by his government in the 1990s for converting to Christianity. When efforts by his legal team and U.S. officials failed to overturn the sentence, Hussein fled to America but eventually converted back to Islam and returned to Kuwait. This thoroughly footnoted book provides unique insight into the Islamic legal system and how the United States might respond to it.
