Another propaganda piece by the hijab-wearing Meredith Heagney in the Columbus Dispatch *sigh*.
She kicks off her Christian hit piece inside Pastor Blake Lorenz's church. It smacks of mockery and contempt for Christianity. Here is the opening paragraph:
One young woman appealed to God to send dreams to Rifqa's 6-year-old brother to inspire his conversion. "Amen," the group muttered, some rocking in their chairs. "Yes, Jesus."
They asked God to heal her right eye, blinded in a childhood accident, as a divine sign. "It would show the world there is one true living God," Lorenz said. "We do believe, oh God, Jesus is preparing the world for his return."
Get it? A praying for Rifqa freak show. I have met those folks. The Lorenzes and the good people of that church and Rifqa's Christian friends have more goodness and integrity than there is in all of hijabed Heagney's writings. Imagine if Heagney wrote this, " The imam lay facedown on the living room floor, placed his hands over his eyes and pleaded with Allah to bring Islamic justice to apostate Rifqa Bary".
Here she goes on:
So what? Muslims danced in the streets on 911. What of it? It's one thing to pray for conversion, it's another to kill non-believers, torture them, force them to live in dhimmitude and pay a jiyza. Praying for conversion and enforcing "convert or die" dictum are completely opposite.
There's a lot more of this anti-Christian 'bigotry'. But you get the idea.
Has the hijabed Meredith spent time undercover in the NOOR mosque? Has she reported on any of the goings-on inside the mosque? Renee the rube Stuzman has been in Pastor Lorenz's church every Sunday. She was there yesterday. Why? Has Renee the rube visited the mosque? Have any of these reporters looked into any of the teaching of Islam? Three out of four mosques preach hate against the West. Where's the reportage?
Would she report anything untoward about the mosque if she saw it?
To the key issue -- the only issue of consequence, apostasy, hijab Heagney writes:
Has Heagney or any reporter covering the story looked into apostasy in Islam, at all?
Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi: "Apostasy Major and Minor," IslamOnline, April 13, 2006.
Sharia law on apostasy:
1- Apostates are to be given three days to repent and return to Islam. If s/he refuses, s/he is immediately killed. This is stated in all schools of Sharia: Hanafi, Shafi?i lawf1.3, Hanbali law, Maliki law and Codified Islamic law. No exception.
2- There is no indemnity for killing an apostate (O: or any expiation, since it is killing someone who deserves to die). Shafi'i o8.4
3- Testimony of apostates is not admissible. Hanafi Law, 362.
4- An apostate does not inherit from Muslim parents. Shafi'i L1.0
5- Marriage of an apostate is immediately dissolved if the spouse is and remains Muslim. Shafi'i m7.
Have they spoke to ONE apostate? Are Ibn Warraq, Nonie Darwish, Ayaan Hirsi Ali et al fielding phone calls? Even one?
She calls Rifqa's plead for her life " a rambling and emotional YouTube video of Rifqa" -- rambling, indeed. "Youtube video" -- as if Rifqa produced it for distribution.
Is Heagney biased? Uh, you tell me!
And during last year's Eid al-Fitr celebrations, Heagney authored a whining piece about the mosque's services entitled, "Muslims still look for acceptance". While conducting her reporting at the mosque she was photographed sporting her hijab along with her Dispatch ID card: (hat tip Barbarossa)
We will have more on the Dispatch's Dhimmitude in the coming days, but newspaper subscribers and the Columbus-area public should take this into consideration when weighing Meredith Heagney's "reporting" (or anyone from the Dispatch for that matter) on the Rifqa Bary case.
Read the whole piece of taqiya. CAIR is working the comments section. Big time. Lots on nasty Geller shiz in there :)
