The smoke is clearing on why the Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas front CAIR suddenly made a deal on Tuesday to free Rifqa from sharia law (here and here). Even her defense was shocked by the CAIR capitulation. Now we know why.
Brian Smith filed for Global Revolution reinstatement on September 29, 2009, after a flood of money was coming in for Rifqa Bary, solicited by myself and others. Rifqa was in desperate need of legal counsel after the Islamic machine came after her for leaving Islam. Perhaps Brian reinstated the paperwork so that he could cash the checks. The VOLUNTARY DISSOLUTION of the Global Revolution Church was filed last week on the 15th, here. So they knew it was all going to hit the fan shortly.
Brian Smith, the judas prick who turned on Rifqa and those who saved her from certain tragedy, is even worse than we thought. (Is that possible?)
Brian Smith of Blake Lorenz's former church made a full court press on his affidavit. Smith contended that the Lorenzes "ignored warnings" not to take Rifqa in. Blake Lorenz states adamantly that is absolutely not so. Brian Smith provided the affidavit to Omar Tarazi, Rifqa's parents' attorney, upon request.
Much has been said of Pastor Blake Lorenz and his wife Beverly, who took Rifqa in when she made her desperate escape from the devout Muslim household. The Islamic machine has tried to cast the good deed of the Lorenzes in their demonic light, with the help of Brian Judas Smith. (here)
Now we find that those who worked against the Lorenzes and Rifqa were stealing Rifqa's money, along with Islamic accomplices. Such lovely cannibals.
Back in August I ran a post advising readers that they could send a donation to Rifqa via the Global Revolution Church. This was before her trust was established and, from what I can determine, is not involved in this skulduggery.
Here is the Atlas post from last summer.
Donations went to the Global Revolution Church. Can Atlas readers be helpful here? If you sent a check to Rifqa last summer, get a copy of the back of it from your bank and see what bank numbers are stamped on it. If you bank online, you can easily do this .......let's find out where the bloody money went.
Hat tip to Dee, who picked up on these irregularities a month ago.

And Jawa has this:
Yesterday, the Orlando Sentinel published the second article in the past week disclosing alleged recorded conversations between the current Global Revolution Church officials, Brian Smith, Tom Sanchez and Jeff Parker (aka the “Judas Three”) and the former pastors of the church, Blake and Beverly Lorenz. The Judas Three have submitted affidavits through Tarazi with the Ohio court. The conversations were recorded illegally, as Florida law requires all parties being taped to be notified they are being recorded. A criminal complaint for their illegal wiretapping has already been filed with the Orlando Police Department.
Now here's what the Columbus Dispatch and Orlando Sentinel conveniently forgot to report about their supposed "star witnesses" in the case.
Perhaps the most disturbing element to the crimes committed by Brian Smith, Tom Sanchez and Jeff Parker is that they have illegally embezzled and/or misappropriated funds sent to the church from all over the country by Rifqa's supporters intended for Rifqa’s legal defense fund. The Orlando law firm overseeing her defense fund, Fowler, O'Quinn, Feeney & Sneed, confirmed this week that they have not found any records of EVER receiving any monies from Global Revolution Church sent to the church designated for Rifqa’s legal defense. I have been provided copies of checks sent to the church designated to Rifqa's defense fund, confirming that monies were in fact received, but never forwarded to Fowler, O'Quinn, Feeney & Sneed.
Anyone who sent checks to the Global Revolution Church or transferred money through the church's PayPal account since August for Rifqa's defense is encouraged to contact the Orlando Police Department at 321-235-5300 (complaint desk) to report the funds missing.
The “Judas Three” are also facing federal mail tampering charges. After the trio engineered a church leadership coup and fired the Lorenzs back in September, they intercepted personal mail intended for the Lorenzs sent to the church post office box. Instead of forwarding the mail to the Lorenz’s in accordance with federal law, they sent the mail to CAIR attorney Omar Tarazi, who is representing Rifqa's parents in Ohio. Tarazi, knowing that the mail had been illegally obtained, then attempted to use this purloined correspondence to sabotage negotiations with Rifqa's legal team, making him an accessory after the fact to the Judas Three's felonious mail tampering. Additionally, Tarazi never notified postal authorities of the crime as required of an officer of the court. The mail tampering was attested to in an affidavit submitted to the Ohio court last month by Blake Lorenz (posted at Atlas Shrugs).
Anyone who sent mail to the Lorenzs at the Global Revolution Church address are directed towards the USPS website to file a complaint to assist the pending federal mail tampering investigation.
The Judas Three are also facing a lawsuit from former church officials who claim that the trio held corporate meetings for the church without the knowledge or notification of other corporate officers for which there are no notices, meeting minutes or agendas; conducted corporate business without authorization; and submitted falsified information to the state of Florida in order to wrest control of the corporation from other church officers. Based on this information, the Lorenzs are considering a separate lawsuit that they were illegally fired by the trio.
The selective reporting by the Dispatch’s,Meredith “Hijab” Heagney and the Sentinel’s Amy Edwards is no surprise. Their persistent bias in “reporting” on Rifqa’s plight from the beginning of the affair has already been widely discussed here at the Jawa Report and elsewhere (e.g. Atlas Shrugs and JihadWatch). The actions of the Judas Three and their open alliance with CAIR appear to be an effort to cover up possible financial and other crimes. And it seems evident now, considering the settlement earlier this week in Rifqa’s case, that CAIR’s strategy in the wake of that stunning legal defeat is to attack in the media and the courts those who helped Rifqa escape an abusive home and the terror-tied Muslim community in Ohio. That the media, Tarazi and the Judas Three have banded together in a criminal enterprise should be no surprise to anyone as well.
We’ll keep you posted on the pending criminal charges and lawsuits against Brian Smith, Tom Sanchez, Jeff Parker and CAIR attorney Omar Tarazi.
Busy as a burglaring bee was Brian. Brian was trafficking in the PO Box of the Global Revolution Church. Not only was he stealing Rifqa's rubles, but he set up a business using the Church PO box ..... more on that tomorrow.
