RIFQA -- Update (With Addendum From Always On Watch)

stuck topside for a bit. scroll down for newer posts
ALL -- I grabbed this from Atlas Shrugs. If you think you can help or have advice or ideas the best thing to do may be to follow the link to Atlas and leave the info there. She seems to read most of her comments. Just make sure you toodle on back here then:)

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:

WE CAN ALL HELP, HERE IS ONE OPTION - PLEASE READ. I have emailed Glenn Beck, Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity and Bill and Megyn on the fox morning show and asked (begged) them to give this story air time and check into it. Everyone here could also email them to encourage them to put the story on the air. Please send them all an email and anyone else that you think would give this story air time! We can help save her if we make our voices heard.

from Atlas

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.

There is no more compelling testimony than Rifqa's plea for her life made to a Florida reporter. Here's the video. Here is the text of Rifqa's cry.

Just as the the West failed Amina and Sarah Said in life and death, the West cannot fail Rifqa Bary in life or it will result in her death. This cannot be her fate.

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
the girl.

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.

=========END UPDATE=========

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.

Don't expect any help for this poor kid from CNN. They are too busy shilling for the virtues of the hijab.

Is there something that I can do? I mean, I don't know how to help her from here but I understand what she might be going through. I am in a similar situation. The only difference is, her parents found out and mine haven't yet.

This girl looks so young. And she is right, "you guys won't understand". I'd be laughing too if I knew that whatever I would say would be treated as "crazy load of crap from someone that is just seeking attention". That is probably what she's thinking, I don't know!

If you need any references from Islamic writings or any other references. I don't know if that might help you or the expert. If her lawyer needs to speak to me, I am ready to do that also over the phone. I don't know, I am just throwing out ideas. Don't know what else to do!

Examples of honor killings in Europe might help solidify the case. There is a long and bloody history of apostates dying. If there is anything that you might think is going to help, let me know.

Her story sounds like mine. I know those feelings first hand when she says "I want to worship Jesus...I don't want to die".

Imam Hatim Hamidullah didn't actually say that Islam doesn't prescribe the death penalty for apostasy. He just said that the father shouldn't harm his daughter because he is angry with her. This leaves the door open for the father to murder his daughter for apostasy or honor, as long as he does it dispassionately. Hamidullah: "It is not Islam for the father to bring harm upon his blood daughter or any other human being because of anger. Our position is to exhaust all measures that would bring peace and harmony back to the family. Being angry and threatening the life of someone is not one of those methods."

That's from Jihad Watch. The Imam is correct in what he said. Exhausting all option means, give the girl 3 days to recant. During those 3 days, lock her up in a room or/and don't give her food and water and recite the Koran to her. If she doesn't revert back to Islam, then kill her. I know this routine like the back of my hand. What I am scared about is that the leftist a**holes are going to buy it and this poor girl is going to disappear forever.

AA -- I saw your duplicate post above. I'll sticky this longer post at top for 12 hours or so and let yours continue to move down so folks see it twice.

Meanwhile, if you could pop over to Atlas Shrugs where this came from and leave all the info there or point her back here (instead of retyping comments) that would be helpful.

Thanks dude.

So Sgt. Cupp thinks the daddy is "genuinely worried" about his little girl? I bet he is. Just what does a Muslim male imagine will happen to him after death if he has shunned his duty to murder his apostate daughter. The houris will decline to, ah, peel his grapes for him in paradise?

Always On Watch said...

I added something personal at the end of this post.

Was I ever stupid back then!

I fully recognized that the girl I knew was afraid of her father. I didn't know why! He seemed such a nice man.

AOW - far too many of us were completely ignorant of the effect Islam, 'just another religion', held on our female contacts. I, too, frequently ponder the state-of-wellbeing of one of my sons teachers. She was a newlywed at the time, having taken the surname 'smith' yet her spouse was a Jordanian immigrant. Though fifteen years my junior, she latched onto me and confided her fears to me - at great effort, having given me the impression she 'escaped' for brief visits to coffee shops in San Jose. I had no clue about Islam back then ( months prior to 9/11). At the time, I suggested marriage counseling. In retrospect, I should have told her to RUN, I should have helped her return to VA. Clarity began to surface in 2004 when I stumbled upon JihadWatch. By then, we each had moved from the San Jose area and lost touch. Now, I wonder, have regrets, and worry for her.

with the election of Obama, and his willful (naive? ..maybe) stupidity on this .. the USA is NOT READY or WILLING at the electorate level to face the music on this issue.

The american people don't want to have to face that THESE ARE THE FIVE CARDS for our time on earth

Pastorius said...

One of my sisters Muslim friends (a white American convert) recently divorced her husband. She confided to us she had to have what she called "the talk" with her daughter.

"The talk" consisted of explaining to her daughter that, if her father ever takes her to an airport, he may take her back to the ME, and never allow her to return ... that she would likely never see her mother again."

That is the reality of Islam.

I agree with Epa on Tel Aviv being a safe place for her. However, I think getting her there would be more complicated than we might think.

Back when I started writing (and even now) the content of my blog posts tries to tell people that Muslims that carry out honor killings or support jihad are not two horned devils with red pointy tails. They look like you and me. They act like you and me. They are not the type of crazies you would put in a mental institution. They can look normal, they can keep their calm and they can tell a lie when they want to get things done their way.

Of course the father reported her sick, of course he LOOKED worried. He can't barge into a police station and tell the cops, "my daughter that I was supposed to kill tonight has run away, I need her back, I've already sharpened(word?) my sword." That cop that said something to the affect of "oh yeah, he;s a standup guy" is blind like the majority of the people in the world.

It is disgusting to see people's comments that are like "oh maybe she did something and wants to just run away and now is telling that she's christian." One commentator was clinging on to taqiyya in this way: "I will only believe her story if you show me her pictures at home wearing an abaya (burqa)" thats paraphrased, however, anyone that knows anything about Islam knows that women don't have to wear an abaya at home and again anyone that knows anything about Islam knows that Muslims that never even pray would kill their children for this because it is a great insult!

Of course the father filed a missing person\s report and of course he wants his daughter back. Try to put yourself in his shoes. If he doesn't do anything to his daughter and lets her go, he won't be able to show his face to the Muslim community in Ohio and not only that, his relatives back in Srilanka aren't going to welcome him back with open arms. He would be a failure as a father but most importantly, failure as a Muslim.

I can keep on writing about this here, AOW, but if you think I can help this girl in anyway, please email me. As I have said, I am ready to reveal my identity to save her life! I don't, not even for one second, doubt what she's saying.

sorry i meant to say, "of course the father reported her missing..." not "sick"

"They look like you and me. They act like you and me. "



While 'honor killing' is not in the Quran's been swallowed as such, thus those who LOVE THEIR CHILDREN 'more' than their religion have to resist the peer pressure of the ENTIRE EDIFICE OF CULTURE.

How many are prepared for such ostracism?
Those who truly are, are food for the gintsu themselves.

Anonymous said...

I don't know if the word 'honor killing' is in the Quran, but I do know that the injunction to kill apostates is there. Its in Sura 4.88-89. The only problem is that you have to know Arabic to get the real meaning. Its really easy to twist classical Arabic and thats what most of the translators do these days, because they want to cater to the western society! Another loud and clear example of taqiyya!

Oh just wanted to add another thing here: Renouncing your faith in public and on top of that embracing Christianity is seen as an insult to Islam. Hence it is seen as an attack on Islam.

I have regrets about my lack of action on behalf of that student of mine. Because of language issues, she was older than most sixth graders. As I recall, she was 14 or 15 years of age.

After she turned 16, she disappeared.

I think that I saved her essay. I'll try to dig it out of storage.

She and I did have a lengthy conversation after she wrote the essay. I still remember the fear in her eyes when we talked. Now I know what she was so afraid of, but I didn't know back then.

BTW, another element of her essay was about how cheating on schoolwork was both accepted and expected from her parents. She refused to cheat and got into trouble at home over that as well.

Spot on.

Our dhimmified law enforcement and justice system will not be her advocates - to the shame of the very principles upon with our nation was founded.

Avenging Apostate,
Renouncing your faith in public and on top of that embracing Christianity is seen as an insult to Islam. Hence it is seen as an attack on Islam.

And that's another reason that my student was secretive about her conversion.

I wonder if there are Muslim students in private Christian schools these days. The family of which I spoke in my addendum was the only Muslim family in the entire school - ever.

Avenging Apostate,
I'll email you if I think of something.

That sort of seems to be a "Pakistani" thing. My parents used to encourage stuff like that too but they never got mad if I didn't cheat. However, Islam does encourage lying to get your way. But that's mostly if it does something good for Islam.

Just sent emails to all those email address for fox news mentioned above. Lets see what happens in the next couple of days. I can't remember where, but someone said that keeping it a secret would have been better for the girl.

All this publicity and time is giving the "wrong" side more time to start a smear campaign against her and |make" her story "fake". To be honest, I don't have a lot of hope for this girl. Plus it doesn't help that she's 17 and hence still a minor.

this is listed as a "top story" now. At this link is an image of Rifqa's parents - a picture is worth a thousand words . . . Notice Rifqa's mom is veiled, covered and pinching her lips shut while daddy dearest is quite animated.

In case the story changes, here is the link to the image alone:

Parents named Mohamed and Aysha. I see. Shouldn't be any worries about sending her back home at all then... What is she, some kind of Islamophobe?
