    An Ex-Muslim's Letter to the Critics of Pamela Geller This letter was sent to me from an apostate living in Europe. He has asked me to publish it. Dear Pamela, The more I go through the online videos of your media interventions, the more I am astonished by the way many Americans attack you. Being an ex-muslim — ie: a European who converted to Islam in his youth, who lived in the muslim ummah, travelled and studied in depth Arabic and islamic jurisprudence — your arguments are very clear to me, whilst the arguments of your critics fail to make...
  • Are we in Afghanistan to defend the Kabul government's right to kill Christian converts?

    Pressures appear to be growing from the U.S.-backed government in Kabul against any manifestation of Christianity in Afghanistan by Afghan citizens or by citizens of other nations who are working in the troubled central Asian nation, according to World Magazine's Mindy Belz. Afghan Christians make up a tiny minority of the officially Muslim nation's population. The Afghanistan constitution adopted in 2004 with substantial U.S. input and backing affirms the right of all persons to practice their religious faiths. But the latter is qualified by saying such practices must be conducted within the provisions of Afghan law, which effectively means Sharia,...

    Rifqa Bary's parents and their CAIR-appointed attorney have reneged on the deal for dependency and instead want to go to trial. As I long suspected, Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas front CAIR had no intention of allowing an apostate from Islam to live freely as a glowing example to other Muslims dying to leave Islam. An anonymous source tells me Rifqa wasn't told of the terrible development from her lawyers. She had to read the hijabed Heagney's account. I contend, yet again, that Rifqa is ill represented by an uninformed counsel chosen by John Stemberger. But I hear Stemberger inked his...

    There is a war of attrition going on in the Rifqa Bary case. Rifqa is the girl who converted from Islam to Christianity and fled from her family in fear for her life -- and the Islamic machine is attempting to wear her down, grind her down by constant mental abuse. The persecution is so obvious, and yet so mundane that no one seems to take notice. The banality of evil. Some sources say that a Muslim psychiatrist was assigned to Rifqa while she was in Florida, where she fled from her Ohio home (now she has been returned to...

    In spite of the cover up, this is perhaps the first time in the history of Islam that Muslims finally have access to the truth about their own religion, thanks to the Internet and satellite dishes (invented by infidels). There are daily news reports of heart-broken Muslims who say they cannot believe what is written in Muslim scriptures and say that Muslims have been living under the greatest lie in human history. Others simply deny and say that it can't be so. While Saudi Arabia is spending billions to Islamize the West, many Muslim prisoners of Islamic submission are dying...

    A Florida judge will determine whether Islam-to-Christianity convert Rifqa Bary will be returned to Ohio this afternoon at 3:15pm EDT. As I reported yesterday, the extremism of the Central Ohio mosque her parents attend, the Noor Islamic Cultural Center, has become a central issue in the dispute. But a source who was inside a secret strategy meeting conducted by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) earlier this week has conveyed the strategy that the media's favorite Islamist group has devised to respond to the ongoing public relations crisis. According to my source who attended the strategy session, CAIR officials handed...

    A judge in Florida has determined arguments over a young Christian who ran away from her Muslim parents in Ohio when her father allegedly threatened her life will continue in Florida, and she will not be returned immediately as her parents wished. Fathima Rifqa Bary, 17, an honor student and cheerleader, was raised in a Muslim family in Columbus, Ohio. She became a Christian four years ago as a result of her interactions with children at school. But Bary, a native of Sri Lanka, hitchhiked to a bus station and ran away from home July 19 because she says her...

    Pamela Geller has the most recent news. WND will have an update shortly that Florida Governor Crist has weighed in and taken action. Every bit of news has a promise and threat. Threat is that she could end up with who knows what in the FL foster parent system. I wish she could stay with some Christians that would put her interests first. The promise is that Christ may have saved her life, for now.

    Back in 2002, my then-Senate boss, Sen. Bob Smith (R-NH) had the good fortune to meet with young Elian Gonzalez in Miami and with his extended Miami family. He was only six years old and his mother had perished tragically at sea on their raft, hoping to bring him to freedom and a better life. The Senator knew after questioning him at length that he wanted to stay in America. Sadly, the Clinton Administration, which changed Cuban asylum policy to wet foot/dry foot (meaning that those seeking refuge from the communist island nation had to make it to dry land),...

Pamela Geller from the blog Atlas Shrugs has been following this story closely and joins EC to discuss how Rifqa's case is unique, not in the fact that she has been marked for death by her family, but in that she has escaped and is telling her story publicly... and the...

    A 17-year-old girl who fled to Florida after converting from Islam to Christianity will almost certainly be forced to return home to Ohio, experts say -- despite her fears that she will become the victim of an honor killing for abandoning her parents' faith. Rifqa Bary, who hitchhiked to an Ohio bus station earlier this month and took a charter bus to Orlando, remains in protective custody with Florida's Department of Children and Families. A judge is expected to rule Friday on the jurisdiction of the case, but several legal experts contacted by FOXNews.com say the girl is bound to...

    A young Christian runaway in custody of child protective services awaits her hearing tomorrow when Florida authorities will decide whether she will be forced to return to her Muslim parents – whom she says will kill her for converting to Christianity.

She became a Christian four years ago as a result of her interactions with children at school. Atlas Shrugs' Pamela Geller has followed Bary's case closely, reporting that the girl's friends accompanied her to the school counselor after they noticed bruises...

    A 17-year-old girl who ran away from her Ohio home to Florida says she fears her parents will harm her for converting from Islam to Christianity, but her parents dismiss her claim and say she was brainwashed. Her parents also question how the girl ended up in the home of a Florida family she met through an online prayer group. Authorities are trying to determine whether the girl, Rifqa Bary, should stay in state custody or be returned to her family in Ohio. "We love her, we want her back, she is free to practice her religion, whatever she believes...
