The Islamic machine is in full swing. Their priority is to separate Rifqa from her supporters, her friends, her fortress against the jihad against her. The belligerent, hostile new Islamist lawyer for Mohamed Bary has tried vigorously to get John Stemberger (Rifqa's lawyer) removed. He shrieked in the court room that Rifqa's guardian ad litem was in cahoots with Rifqa's legal counsel (and what is their evil agenda? Rifqa's well being?). The Muslim offense is to restrict Rifqa's visitation with her close friends and Shayan Elahi (the Islamic lawyer) recommended to the judge that "medication" be administered to Rifqa.
Do you see where this is going?
But they can't attack that dear little girl every day, can they? No. So they switch off between Rifqa, "the right wing" extremists protecting and defending her (myself, Robert Spencer et al), Rifqa's lawyer (a Christian conservative activist!), Christianity itself and the good Pastor who took her in.
The corrupt and utterly debased media is only too happy to do the dirty work for jihad. Check out this disgusting editorial written by a Muslim accusing the church of "getting rich off Rifqa". First off, the Rifqa Bary Trust was only just established a couple of days ago. And Rifqa will be receiving all proceeds. This is an attempt to smear the church and keep money out of Rifqa's hands much needed for defense. She needs to hire various professionals for her defense. The lawyer that set up the trust did it pro bono. Believe me, there is no money cache.
Where are the Muslims defending Rifqa? Where are Muslim feminists (oxymoron?) coming to the defense of Rifqa. Every apostate has spoken fiercely in Rifqa's defense. How come we don't see those faces on television?
This case is about apostasy. Period. All this confetti is a trick to take the focus off the brutal punishment for apostates.
As a consequence, Web sites are publishing shrill articles, such as www.centerforsecuritypolicy.org's "Dead Girl Walking."
Not a single politician stood up for truth and justice in this case until Wednesday, when Franklin County Prosecutor Ron O'Brien issued a statement that, in 31 years, he has not heard of a single case of "honor killing" in the area. So the claim that the Muslim community of central Ohio, which numbers more than 60,000 people, is dangerous to people who leave the religion is nothing but hate propaganda.
Ron O'Brien ought to look beyond his lakeview townhouse where there are large concentrations of Muslims. As far back as 2004, UK police were re-examining more than 100 murders in England and Wales they suspect could be so-called honour killings. It has gotten so bad in the UK that the Parliament has taken it up as a critical issue. Last month a man, his wife, and son are accused of killing four young women, including the man's three daughters in what Canada police are describing as a savage honor killing disguised as a car accident.
O'Brien is an ignoramus. Do your homework before you sentence a girl to death.
Ohio child-welfare officials also issued a report stating that it is safe for Rifqa to return to Ohio. Rifqa Bary's family already has agreed to let her come back here and immediately be put under the protection of Franklin County Children Services.
I have spoken to a number of folks on Ohio and this girl has been living in fear for years. Terrified. As one of her best friends described her secret conversion, "It's an Ann Frank Story".
In response, the Florida court sealed the findings of its own law-enforcement investigation into the alleged "Ohio threat," because obviously there isn't one, and so far has refused to let her come back to Ohio.
Why not let her come here? Because Global Revolution Church, the fanatical group that targeted this minor on the Internet and put her up in the home of a male "pastor" in Florida without alerting the authorities for two weeks, is out to make money off this story.
I have met them, talked to them. They are lovely, G-d fearing Christians. The salt of the earth.
The church has succeeded in injecting bigotry and ignorance into the halls of justice in Florida. But I believe the hate that has infected Florida politics, a cancer that Americans soundly rejected in the last election, ultimately will be defeated in this case.
It is about time for Gov. Ted Strickland to do the right thing and take a stand in defense of our state and in the defense of justice and the rule of law.
It's disgusting how the smearing of the church is almost sport. But speak the truth about the extremism mosque, the Islamic terrorist that preach and plan, the vile sermons and teaching and you are committing .....blaspheme. And the lapdog media laps it up like the good dogs that they are.
These are the victims of Western apathy and silence, and it's only getting worse:
What follows are recent victims of honor killings in the West..... someone ought to email this to the maroon O'Brien as he throws Muslim girls and their right to love under the bus as he serves his Islamic masters.

The killing of Ghazala Khan in Denmark by her brother may be the only instance where an 'honour' killing has been photographed while being perpetrated. This picture was captured on cell phone camera and shows the woman's brother aiming the gun at his sister, lying on the ground. Her fiancee, also seen, was wounded, but survived. The killing was planned by her entire family, and Pakistani taxi drivers were used as spies to spot her and alert her family.

1/3 of the women murdered in Jordan are a result of Islamic "honor" killing. And yet I could not find one picture of a murdered girl in Jordan.
"It was a brutal scene. One victim's head was nearly cut clean off," an official is quoted as saying. (here)
And the thing is, this is the end - the final act, the culmination of the subjugation, oppression, violent abuse of women in Islam. The terror that precedes the murder is almost unimaginable. Living in fear, every day, living in fear of physical and mental abuse and still, standing up and living their own lives -- only to be murdered for it.
