Our rally for Rifqa generated yet another fallacious hit piece by the useful idiot and Islamic apologist Meredith Heagney over at The Columbus Dispatch, entitled 120 Rally for Rifqa outside courthouse. (The police count was 220, mine was a bit higher, but Heagney lowballs it in the headline, kabish?) And notice how Heagney ignored that folks came from Michigan, New York, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, Texas, Missouri, Louisiana, Toronto, California...
Nonie Darwish, apostate and speaker at the rally, takes Heagney to task for spreading deception and lies about sharia law and apostasy. Meredith will traffic in any obfuscation to return this Christian convert to a devout Muslim household. If anything happens to Rifqa, Heagney and her fellow trolls are indeed responsible.

Thank you for writing the following article, however, I have a comment on what Alan Godlas said: "120 Rally for Rifqa outside Columbus Courthouse" Alan Godlas, a professor of Islamic studies at the University of Georgia, said in a phone interview that Islamic law does permit the execution of a person whose betrayal of the faith would likely result in the deaths of Muslims, but Rifqa's conversion does not qualify. If you kill someone unjustly, you're a murderer under Islamic law, Godlas said.
Mr. Godlas is not accurate in the statement he gave Ms. Heagney. According to Islamic Law, all schools of Sharia agree that a Muslim who leaves Islam must be killed immediately and I think Mr. Godlas agrees with that. However, what the professor failed to mention is that according to mainstream Shafi law, there are three murders where a Muslim will not be punished, which means that a Muslim is forgiven if he kills under 3 conditions, one of which is killing an apostate. The Middle East studies professor can open the mainstream Shafi Law book Reliance of the Traveler. law number o5.4 page number 593. to see that such a law encourage vigilante street justice against apostates. Killers of apostates are often defended by none other than top Al Azhar Sheikhs.
Mr. Godlas also stated under Islamic Law "If you kill someone unjustly, you're a murderer. That is correct but it only applies if a Muslim kills another Muslim, yes they are murderers and get the death penalty. However, he failed to mention Sharia states . "There is no retaliation if a Muslim kills a non-Muslim". Ref. o1.2 (2)page 584. Therefore,if a Muslim kills another Muslim he gets the death penalty, but if he kills a non-Muslim he will not get the death penalty. Under Islamic law, the law does not protect everyone equally from murder, example apostates, adulterers and non-Muslims. I wonder why Mr. Alan Godlas failed to mention that.
