After today's bombshell press conference - Rifqa Bary's statement and mosque investigative report - there was not one, not two, but three CAIR-fused anti-Rifqa articles at the Orlando Sentinel today. Three. The shills at the Orlando Sentinel are on the warpath against Rifqa Bary. It's like watching a train wreck in slow moe. It is jaw dropping how vested the media is in advancing CAIR's fallacious narrative against Rifqa and those speaking in her defense. So much so they print the most ridiculous trash without so much as a question mark. They ignore everything that validates Rifqa's claims.
Armaros wrote in a previous thread:
But what horse does the media have in this?
Are they so afraid that their kids might be lured into Christianity by on line predator missionaries?
.....they fear them more than AL Queda, as Al Queda was "exaggerated" by Bush and Cheney. Christians are the enemy. Their bibles, guns and pick up trucks. Hell if it weren't for them and "their president" Bush, Muslims would be in deep love with us.
They have latched on to the religious euphoria, which Rifqa is obviously
exhibiting, and assume as if it was unique or somehow due to the Pastor couple
who have taken her in. All converts go through this phase. Especially if met
with such adversity which also happens to revolve around their new faith.
How many shills have we heard about John Walker Taliban Lindt?
The explanations for his "misguided yet well meaning" euphoria he felt about Islam were so many I lost count. As well as concerns for his safety.
Will he be devoured by inmates in prison?
Should he get extra protection...?
And above all, how he must be able to continue practicing his faith.
All that while the real question should have been whether to hang him or shoot him for his treason.
It is striking how the media let themselves be played.
They ignore everything and anything relating to the Barys. Nothing even seems odd to them. Their suspicion is 100% with the other side. Not 60% or 80%. 100%.
The US immigration paper Pamela posted indicates that Mr Bary violated the
conditions required for permanent residency in the USA. That being, the 6 years
continuous presence on US territory. It appears from his own accounts that he
was going on business trips while he was supposed to stay put in the US.
Not that this makes one a murderer or reveal sinister things.
Still strikes me as odd when papers so kindly miss this, and all the other shenanigans like if this was the 08 election campaign.
I think the Bary side is already playing a field ahead.
I believe they resigned to the possibility that the Florida court will move in favor of a child's welfare, especially given her age of 17. It will be judged that she was old enough to assess danger if she saw it.
-At least I hope that.
So the Bary camp is already setting up the narrative for the next round.
For this they have enlisted the sympathetic, naive and politically correct media.
The narrative being, their poverty, misfortune and victim hood to Islamophobia and a right wing christian conspiracy after the economic misfortunes of Mr Bary having lost his shipment in 2001 and his unfair treatment by the INS.
[Needless to say ..... the Barys were still renting two homes, owned two businesses and traveled a lot. Up until the very end of last month. Ignoring his business dissolution and distracting with this luggage story says more about the journalism at the Sent and StP Times than the Bary camp who is trying to win a fight.]
These new "revelations" are readying them to face off at a higher venue. This is why they re feeding the media with these stories and this is why the christianophobic liberal establishment is taking up their cause. Such cause being based in a lie, that Rifqa was converted and brainwashed by child stealing christian fanatics. Leaving behind in shatters the Bary family after all the other injustices they have suffered, including being refused permanent status in the USA because of silly and archaic immigration rules. Those "un american" rules Pelosi was pontificating about when pimping herself for the "legalize them all" crowd.
Here's the trifecta at the Orlando Sentinel:
What did the tools at the Sentinel expect? That the mosque would say, Oh yes, we are extremists tied to Hamas! Such stupidity takes the breath away. Here is the evidence of the terror ties here, here, and here.
In a 35-page memorandum filed Monday in Orange County family court, attorney John Stemberger claims Fathima Rifqa Bary, who will remain in foster care in Florida at least until a hearing on Thursday, should not be returned to the custody of her parents, Mohamed and Aysha Bary, because of their connection to the Noor Islamic Cultural Center near Columbus, Ohio.
"The leader of the mosque, Dr. Hany Saqr, was previously an imam for another area mosque at the same time the largest known Al Qaeda cell in the U.S. since 9/11 was operating out of the mosque," the document read. "Additionally, Dr. Saqr was identified in exhibits submitted by the Department of Justice in a recent terrorism finance trial in Texas as being one of the leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood in North America — an international organization responsible for birthing virtually every Islamic terrorist organization in the world, including Al Qaeda."
The center also is affiliated with Dr. Salah Sultan, a "cleric alleged photographed with terrorist leaders designated as such by the U.S. government," according to the document, and frequently hosts "extremist speakers" who have allegedly made statements supporting violence and terrorism.
Back to the dhimmi Sentinel:
One can only imagine what a Hamas ideologue mosque would do with a little girl like Rifqa Bary. I mean, think about it.
"At our center we know that people accept Islam, some people accept Christianity, some people accept Judaism," Saqr said. "Based on our religion we think that there's no compulsion to religion. Everybody has the right to choose whatever religion he wants to."
Pure taqiya, lies to advance Islam.
Muslims fear runaway girl's case will fuel religious hatred (oh yeah right). I love Robert's take on it here: "Muslim father threatens to kill daughter for leaving Islam; Muslims claim victim status"
This is, of course, how Islamic groups in the U.S. have reacted to every act of violence and every threat that any Muslim has issued in recent years: they've raised fears of a non-existent "backlash" and claimed they're being persecuted, rather than address the root causes of the violence and brutality within their own community. And the bemused, befuddled multiculturalists in the mainstream media go along with it happily, every time.
The Orlando Sentinel has been engaging in a full-scale campaign to discredit Rifqa Bary and her defenders. Pamela Geller skewered a few of their recent propaganda pieces here, here, and here. And here's the Sentinel's latest fresh steaming pile of Rifqa coverage:
Rifqa said, "My father was very intent on making sure that his children, and especially me, were raised deeply in the faith of 'Original Islam' which was taught at the Noor Center"
"The first thing that we are calling you to is Islam." -- Osama bin Laden, October 6, 2002 (hat tip Robert)
And today's press conference confirmed the reports of abuse I first documented here on August 17th - no other media reported it. Another Atlas first.
