"Pamela, I have been in Law enforcement for the past 20 years and am currently training the police here in Iraq. I worked homicide in the US and am now training with Iraqi Investigators here in Baghdad. TRUST ME, I know, first hand how much danger this young lady is in. I see it everyday here. I see the results of Sharia law and and how fanatical Muslims are and how deep it is embedded into their culture. I will take this knowledge and experience back with me when I return to US law enforcement so we wont be so "clueless" :-) BTW, keep fighting the good fight, I stand with you!"
I said this before and I'll say it again. The courts 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 complicit in 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 pulled the description of HONOR KILLING from the Said honor killing murders . 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 doubt city man a threat to teenage Christian convert
Fathima Rifqa Bary, 17, was found in Florida and placed in foster care there pending investigation.
But Sgt. Jerry Cupp of the missing-persons unit of the Columbus police special-victims bureau, disputes Fathima Rifqa Bary's allegation. He said her father, Mohamed Bary, appears to be a loving parent who knew about her conversion to Christianity months ago.
The New Albany High School cheerleader, who goes by Rifqa, disappeared on July 19, prompting fears that she had been abducted, Cupp said....
Cupp has interviewed the father several times, he said, and doesn't think the man is a threat.
"The parents knew months ago that she was … going to different religious, Christian functions," Cupp said, and there's no evidence that they threatened her with violence.
It "seems outlandish to me," he said, "but that's not for me to decide. We'll gladly let the courts work this thing out."
Atlas on Rifqa:
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"
