This is all about apostasy. Rifqa Bary is terrified of going back to Ohio. So wouldn't sending her back be the worst form of child abuse?
Rifqa's parents, whose reputation is questionable, have filed a complaint against Rifqa. The abusive father who used Rifqa's eye loss as a pretext to come into this country and then never did anything about it is filing a claim against Rifqa. The parents who forced her to lie about how she lost her eye. The father who terrorized her and threatened to kill her has filed a complaint against Rifqa.
This is obviously a legal move to exploit the neglectful findings of Ohio law enforcement. Shayan Elahi warned us, promised us this at the last hearing. Shayan Elahi threatened to file a motion calling Rifqa "an unruly delinquent" if there were no proof of abuse or danger, so that she would be forced to go back to Islamist Ohio. More on the hearing here and my liveblog here.
The Florida judge has said that Florida had jurisdiction because no case had been filed in Ohio. Well, now a case has been filed.
Are honor students "incorrigible"? Are Christian girls "incorrigible"? Are apostates "incorrigible"? -- because that is her crime according to shariah law. No boys, no drugs, no alcohol -- incorrigible? 3.5 GPA -- "incorrigible".
Look at this. CAIR, the Islamic community, the NOOR mosque, will. not . let. this. girl. go. They will not let her live her own life. She'll be 18 in under a year. CAIR Puppet Ohio Governor Strickland Shills for Un-Indicted Co- Conspirator CAIR, On the Islamic Payroll calls for Rifqa's return to Ohio.
The girl left her parents' Northeast Side home on July 19 and took a bus to Orlando, Fla., saying her father will kill her for converting from Islam to Christianity.
She's now in foster care in Florida, where the 9th Judicial Circuit Court is to determine whether she should stay there or be returned to her parents.
Circuit Judge Daniel P. Dawson determined that he had jurisdiction because no case had been filed in Ohio.
The document filed Tuesday in Franklin County says Rifqa is "habitually disobedient," comes and goes as she pleases, defies her parents and their rules, and is truant at home and school. Ohio attorneys for the Barys wouldn't comment on the filing.
In separate news, an investigative report about Rifqa's safety completed by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement was to be made public soon, but Rifqa's attorney, John Stemberger, filed a motion to keep it sealed. The other parties in the case have until Monday to respond to his request, said Shayan Elahi, Mohamed Bary's Florida attorney.
We need Ohio to stay out of Rifqa's case. Ohio is biased, Florida is neutral. Look at the remarks that law enforcement made before they conducted any investigation.
The police and child services in Ohio have spoken to Rifqa's friends. Back in July, the news reports mentioned her recent trips to churches in her community; some of her friends were worried that her going missing had something to do with her recent conversion. Law enforcement knows about the abuse.
And Ohio has been repeatedly sanctioned by the federal courts for failing
to install adequate protective custody services for children. There have
been innumerable child deaths due to parental abuse. They are afoul of
Brian Williams, Rifqa's dear friend. said of "doting dad":
Yeah definitely, she was terrified of her father, she told me at the time, just driving in the car, I'm not sure what it's called, but the head wrap that you see Muslim women wearing, she didn't want to wear that and I guess that her father punched her or hit her in the face or something like that in a rage. I'm sure that there were a lot of things you know, but as a sixteen year old at the time, it was tough for her to talk about it with people. One, that I think she thought that people wouldn't believe her, and secondly, as a young person there were other emotional issues aside from any spirituality, the emotional state of being threatened by your father.
Rifqa cannot be returned to this town in Ohio where the local scholars glad hand with the likes of a jihadist Islamic supremacist genocidal sheikh like Qaradawi.
Dr. Wafa Sultan, apostate in America, wrote here:
After hearing the story of Rifqa Bary I urge well meaning American citizens to take action and keep this innocent girl out of her family’s reach. There are all kinds of reasons to believe that she will be harmed both emotionally and physically, or worse—be killed—once her family has charge of her. Our Western court system must be educated on Islamic apostasy laws to understand Rifqa Bary’s predicament, and the plight of all those like her who choose to leave Islam.
I therefore implore our court authorities who are involved in this case: take notice and listen to individuals like myself. Keeping Rifqa protected and away from her family is the proper way to go both legally and morally.
