In some good news on this case, an Ohio magistrate has ruled that Rifqa Bary is not required to meet with her parents as part of a would-be reconciliation (via Riehl World View).
And, she can also recieve the Christmas cards sent to her. As FOX reports (via AmerIsrael):
"In the end, she's getting the Christmas cards," Sternberger told FoxNews.com. "They're just making sure there's no white powder or anything in them."That's understandable! What if some Islamofascists were to take advantage of this and send booby-trapped mail to her? Yes, it is possible they could, so those responsible for the mail call are right to be concerned.
Her next dependency hearing is said to be on January 19th, so while this current news is good, Rifqa is still not out of the woods yet. Let's hope her defense and supporters are ready to campaign for her again when the time comes.
