    What gorgeous freedom looks like. Rifqa made it. She's free. The case of Rifqa Bary resonated nationally at a time of tense Muslim-Christian relations. One of Rifqa's primary supporters is a blogger who a year later led a campaign against the development of an Islamic center in New York City near ground zero. AP [Christian should come before Muslim, just sayin'] And they can't bring themselves to write my name -- bloody cowards.Despite intense pressure from the Islamic supremacist machine, charges will not be filed against those righteous souls who helped Rifqa Bary escape her devout Muslim household after...

    A Florida attorney says the misconduct complaint filed against him is a frivolous motion from a disgruntled opposing lawyer for his legal representation of a Christian who converted from Islam. The complaint was filed by The Florida Bar on behalf of Columbus attorney Omar Tarazi as he alleges that John Stemberger, who represented Rifqa Bary after she ran away from Ohio to Florida in 2009 because she feared persecution from her family, appeared on TV as the girl's attorney after he stopped representing her. Tarazi had represented the teenage girl's parents as they hoped to return Bary to their custody,...
  • Muslim Hacker Destroys Website of Florida Group Defending Christian Convert [Rifqa Bary]

    Orlando, Fla., Sep 14, 2010 / 06:07 am (CNA).- A hacker has attacked the website of the Florida Family Policy Council (FFPC), a group assisting the Christian convert Rifqa Bary. The hacker said he made the attack because of the group’s thinking about “Great Islam.” The loss of the website could have consequences for the 2010 election in Florida, the group claimed. In an e-mail to supporters the FFPC said the hacker gained access to its website last Friday and “disabled the entire back-end controls on the site, erased most of the data, disabled the blog and left an obscene...

    There is more fall-out from the Rifqa Bary case. Rifqa is the young girl who converted to Christianity and fled her home in Ohio on the grounds that she feared for her safety due to her parents’ Islamic views. Just weeks ago Rifqa turned 18, and we saw a great victory when her freedom and status were secured as a “Permanent Legal Resident” in the U.S. Now comes word from one of her lawyers: “Last Monday, the lawyer who represented Rifqa’s parents in Ohio – who claims to be a “Muslim scholar” – filed a $10 million lawsuit against me...

    COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A lawyer for a runaway Christian convert from Ohio who was also an illegal immigrant says the 18-year-old woman has gained permanent residency in the United States. Kort Gatterdam, a lawyer for Rifqa Bary, said Tuesday the news means Bary can now start applying for a driver's license, Medicaid coverage and college scholarships. Gatterdam says Bary, a native of Sri Lanka, received her permanent residency card last week and can apply for citizenship in five years.

    Rifqa Bary will not be forced to undergo chemotherapy for uterine cancer. The Christian convert's parents were trying to compel Rifqa, who will be 18 in a week, to follow her doctor's recommendation: 45 weeks of chemotherapy. A doctor said Rifqa is disease-free, according to "available imaging techniques," her attorney, Kort Gatterdam, said today in Franklin County Juvenile Court. He assured Magistrate Mary Goodrich that Rifqa will continue to consult her doctors but has chosen against chemotherapy. She has had surgery for her cancer. "She is mature enough to make the decision's she made," he said. Gatterdam also took exception...

Fathima Rifqa Bary, the Muslim teenager from Columbus, Ohio, who converted to Christianity and ran away to Orlando, is being treated for uterine cancer. Rifqa, now 17, has already undergone two operations and will have a third one on Thursday, according to a close friend and her former Orlando lawyer.

    There has been a terrible development in the case of Rifqa Bary. According to Rifqa, she has been diagnosed with advanced uterine cancer I ask all Atlas readers to put Rifqa in their prayers. While this is a tragedy, how she is being victimized by her lawyers and her parents is an atrocity. Her lawyers kept her in the dark about her condition – cancer – for well over a week, while they conferred with her parents and their CAIR appointed lawyers about her treatment. While most cases like this result in a hysterectomy, she is only having the advanced...

    The teen convert to Christianity who ran away from her Muslim family last summer is fighting to stay in the United States. An attorney for Rifqa Bary asked an Ohio judge Monday to declare that the girl is unable to reunite with her parents by her 18th birthday. The order would allow Bary to apply for immigration status and avoid possible deportation to her homeland, Sri Lanka. Though there is no move to deport Bary at the moment, her attorney, Angela Lloyd, said reconciliation is unlikely to happen by her client’s 18th birthday, which is Aug. 10. Lloyd said obtaining...

I am convinced that Rifqa’s own legal team’s blindness regarding the threat that Rifqa faces, as well as their legal blunders, are endangering her life as much as the Muslim CAIR attorneys are. Rifqa herself will have to be the one to take charge over her own defense if anything will change. She is the only one with authority to do anything. I ask all who read this to set aside time to fast and pray for Rifqa....

    Rifqa Bary is the 17-year-old girl who converted from Islam to Christianity and fled from her family in fear for her life. For more than nine months now, the Islamic machine has been trying to make an example of her, as a warning that even in the U.S., those who try to leave Islam will fail. Rifqa’s entire legal strategy, meanwhile, has hinged on ignoring the Islamic aspects of the case, although Islam’s death penalty for apostasy is the only thing that explains why she is in danger. Instead, her lawyers are trying to obtain for her Special Immigration Juvenile...

It cannot and must not continue. After learning some disturbing things over the last several days, and...

    This afternoon (Tuesday, Jan. 19th 2010) Rifqa Bary was declared a dependent of the state of Ohio! This is very good news for Rifqa because it ensures that she will remain in foster care until she is 18. This protects her from being forced to return to her parent’s home. Apparently, Rifqa’s parents realized that they were not going to win the dependency case should it have went to trial. The dependency trial that was scheduled for January 28’th is now cancelled. In exchange for dependency, Rifqa agreed that she violated rules by fleeing her home.

    [More Facebook groups devoted to the murder of Rifqa Bary] In Islam, yes, apostasy is the death penalty. However it is a ruling that is made by the Islamic Courts of Shar'iah and not done on an individual basis, hence there's no legal ruling in Islam allowing Shari'ah to be carried out in dar ul harb.

    Atlas Shrugs ^ | 1/13/10 | rae4palin
    Is Judge Gill and Rifqa's crack legal defense team going to continue to ignore the apostasy and sharia law for those who leave Islam? Are the CAIR militants going to thug, intimidate and pervert the American justice system to enforce Islamic law?

    The Jawa Report ^ | 1/7/10 | rae4palin
    The CAIR attorney representing the Bary parents in the Rifqa Bary saga has not only committed a major legal blunder, but has perjured himself in motions recently submitted to the Ohio court. In the filings, CAIR attorney Omar Tarazi denied connections to CAIR and to the Ohio terror mosque responsible for pressuring Rifqa's father, Mohamed Bary, prompting the threats to his daughter about her conversion to the Christian faith.

    American Thinker ^ | 12/24/2009 | Pamella Geller
    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...

    Today - December 22, 2009 a hearing was held in Franklin Country Juvenile Court in Columbus, Ohio concerning Rifqa Bary. People began arriving around 8:30 AM for the docket that began at 9:00 AM. I glanced at the list of cases and Rifqa's was listed as the second one, so I thought that was good news. Little did I know at the time that the order of the list has nothing to do with the order of the cases - her case ended up being the last one for the day. I also noticed the nature of her case listed...

    The magistrate in the Rifqa Bary case ruled today that the 17-year-old who ran away from her Columbus home in July does not have to sit down for mediation with her parents. There were several issues resolved today at the hearing in Franklin County Juvenile Court, including: Mediation. Magistrate Mary Goodrich said issues now being discussed would best be resolved with individual counseling instead of group mediation. Third-party messages. Bary's parents don't want her to receive Christmas cards, and had filed a motion that any third-party messages first go to Franklin County Children Services. Omar Tarazi, the family's attorney, withdrew...
