Wishful thinking, biased reporting endanger Rifqa Bary Pamela Geller, American Thinker
Heagney's report is striking as much for what it left out as for what she mentioned. Why doesn't the hijabed one talk about the fact that few visitors who are allowed to see Rifqa at all have to be fingerprinted? It seems to me that they are fingerprinting the one or two who visit Rifqa in order to criminalize them: in the event that Rifqa goes on the run again (rather than meet persecution at home if she is returned), anyone who had contact with her will be a suspect. Hence the fingerprints. If they exact Islamic justice and harm Rifqa, the Christians will be blamed (they'll say she ran away with their help). If she does run away, the Christians will be blamed, too. Clearly they are making it very difficult for anyone to help her.And what of all this secrecy? Clearly this is not in the best interests of Rifqa. The only ones who seem to get access to all the unfolding events in this case are Rifqa's worst enemies in the media, like Heagney. Meredith Heagney should visit an Islamic Republic, where she can experience firsthand all that she advocates for.Hussein Wario, a native of Kenya and, like Rifqa, an apostate from Islam, tells the truth that Heagney ignores: "I am very concerned for Rifqa. If the judge reunites her with her family, you know that she will either be severely persecuted or killed here in the United States or elsewhere. An ardent Muslim father would rather kill his child in order to preserve his family from ridicule (from fellow Muslims) than see him or her alive. Mr. Mohamed Bary would be hailed as a hero to Muslims if he were to carryout-God forbid-Islamic judgment on Rifqa because she refuses to revert to Islam."Rifqa's close friend and another convert from Islam to Christianity, Jamal Jivanjee, adds: "As Meredith Heagney is the main reporter assigned to the Rifqa Bary story, I have read several articles that Ms. Heagney has written about the case previously. Each time I read her account of Rifqa's situation, I come away amazed at her ‘selective' use of pertinent information that she includes in her articles. I am beginning to wonder if this is more than just simple oversight. I am convinced that Meredith's oversight reveals at best, a hidden bias against Rifqa Bary, and at worst, a deliberate attempt to deceive the public in Central Ohio. This latest article was unfortunately no exception."The media is against her. Child Services is against her. Her own family is against her - and eagerly awaiting her return to their clutches.
Who will stand for Rifqa Bary?
