I have seen print versions of this at ABC and Fox News. But here's a great idea anyone can do from Aspasia in comments:

I said this before and I'll say it again. The courts and and the cops have no clue what they are dealing with. Subversive groups like CAIR , ISNA and MPAC have been successful at shutting down any discourse on Islam. Anyone who tries to escape is in real danger. The media have subjugated themselves to Islam and in their silence are complict to Islamic misogyny, oppression and suppression. Have you noticed how quiet CAIR has been on this? One can only wonder what their "involvement" is behind the scenes.Rifqa Bary needs experts to testify on her behalf. The leading scholars on Islam - Ibn Warraq, Robert Spencer, Wafa Sultan (living in hiding in the US because she speaks the truth about Islam), Nonie Darwish should be called to testify. This girl cannot be returned to her devout Muslim home.
Based on the cops' ignorance, they will err on the side of political correctness and expose this teenage girl to the prospect of an early, horrible death. This reminds me of the FBI's capitulation on the Said honor killings. They too bowed to Islam and They pulled the description of HONOR KILLING from the Said honor killing murders/ wanted poster. The FBI copped a plea "As far as we're concerned until motive is proven in a court of law, this is just a homicide".
How many girls have to die? How many girls have to live in abject terror?
Police Have Questions About Ohio Runaway’s Story Fox News (hat tip Greg)
COLUMBUS, Ohio—A police detective is questioning the claim of an Ohio
teenager who says she ran away to Florida fearing for her life because she
converted from Islam to Christianity.Sgt. Jerry Cupp, head of the Columbus
Police Department’s missing persons’ bureau, says the girl’s father seems
genuinely concerned and worried about his 17-year-old daughter
Cupp said Wednesday that police tracked the teen from Columbus to Orlando,
Fla., after interviewing a minister from Kansas City who had been in touch with
An Orlando judge on Monday ordered the girl into the custody of the Florida
Department of Children and Families until a hearing next weekThe teenager, who
is not a U.S. citizen, says she fears her family would hurt her, kill her or
send her back to her native Sri Lanka.
PLEASE HELP SAVE THIS TEENAGE GIRL: "They have to kill me. My blood is now halal which means because I am now a Christian, I am from a Muslim background, it is an honor. If they [my family] love god more than me, they have to kill me"
The sight of her father makes the teen "frantic and hysterical," Rosa Gonzalez, the attorney for Rifqa Bary, told Orange Circuit Judge Gail A. Adams. The teen is in fear for her life, Gonzalez said.
This is happening in America. Listen to her cry. This is here now. WATCH THIS VIDEO. It is the most compelling plea I have ever seen.
This is so tragic, so frightening - we must act. Can someone get the name of this girl's lawyer? Experts must testify on her behalf. We will raise the money to fly scholars on Islam to Orlando to speak for the veracity of this girl's claims. Please contact me off line if you know anything. Please. Quickly.
The court does not know what it is dealing with: the obfuscation and lies of the propaganda wing of Islam. Florida took emergency jurisdiction until the court can confirm, but Ohio will take over the case and investigate........"the child should be returned to Ohio".
Girl Says Family Wants To Kill Her For Being Christian
ORLANDO, Fla. -- An Ohio girl ran away to Orlando because she said her
family threatened to kill her for converting to Christianity. Rifqa Bary, 17,
said she was threatened by her family because she converted from Islam to
"What did your father say to you?" WFTV reporter Mary Nguyen asked.
"He said he would kill me!" replied Bary.
They have to kill me. My blood is now halal which means because I am now a Christian, I am from a Muslim background, it is an honor, if they love god more than me, they have to do this."
This is not just some threat. This is reality. This is truth. This is reality.
This is to break the heart. The status hearing is set for next Friday. Something must be done. You can hear the cries of Amina and Sarah, Aqsa, Rand ............. all of those girls, you can hear them in her voice.
I beg you to help this child. This girl is in real trouble. The court does not understand. They will buy into the Muslim lies. Apostasy is death in Islam. If this girl is sent back to her family, they will ship her off to Sri Lanka and we will never hear from her again.
Here's the backstory: She got away!
A week or so ago I blogged about a missing Muslim girl who converted to Christianity. I wrote: Atlas Shrugs: Fathima Rifqa Bary: I hope she got away.
Police had been looking for information about Rifqa, a central Ohio teenager who vanished nearly three weeks ago.
The teenager's cell phone has been turned off and her Facebook account deactivated, Kocot reported.
According to police, the girl's friends told detectives that it was possible she ran away because of conflicting religious beliefs in her home.
She's alive! And in court in a custody battle that could send the girl to her death. I pray they have experts who know about honor killings testify.
The West's abject failure: the gruesome gallery of honor killings in the West.
Addendum from Always On Watch:
I have worked in Christian education for over two decades. After watching the above video of Rifka Bary, I thought back to the mid 1980s, to one of the Pakistani girls in my sixth-grade class. She wrote in her end-of-year essay that (1) she was a secret Christian and (2) she could never tell her parents about her conversion. She further stated that the reason she never learned her Bible verses during the school year was that her parents didn't allow her to have a Bible in the house. Back then, I didn't know the truth about Islam. Back then, I was one of those fools who believed "Islam is just another religion."
I often think of this girl now. I wonder where she is and what's happened to her. Grapevine news this past spring has it that she was sent back to Pakistan and married off to an old man, one of the family cousins. Nobody has heard from her in a long, long time. Her older sisters, college material while the girl in my class was not, stayed here in the United States.
My point....Lest any reader of this post think that Rifqa's story is automatically false, think again.
