Check out my latest at Newsmax today: Rifqa Bary Facing Shariah, Deportation
Here's an excerpt. Read it all:
Rifqa’s legal strategy has been reactive, not pro-active. They are being kept busy responding to motions Tarazi, who was allegedly chosen for the Barys by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a group under suspicion of funding the terrorist group Hamas.
The worst example of how Tarazi fooled Rifqa’s lawyers was that he compelled them to have Rifqa plead guilty to “unruliness” to secure dependency, and then reneged on his part of the deal once the guilty plea had been entered.
The guilty plea continues to have negative ramifications for those who love Rifqa and helped her. Using the “unruly” plea as a pretext, criminal investigations are proceeding and charges are pending against Brian Williams and Blake and Beverly Lorenz, who helped Rifqa when she fled from her home.
Why hasn’t Rifqa’s legal team demanded an investigation by child services into the abuse and death threats in Rifqa’s home? The eligibility requirements for Special Immigrant Juvenile Status demand it. The immigrant minor must not be able to reunite with her parents “due to abuse, neglect, abandonment, or a similar basis found under state law.”
All Rifqa’s lawyers have is a guilty plea to unruliness from Rifqa, and no establishment of abuse at all. In fact, in the stipulation to dependency, the lawyers on both sides were at pains to put on the record before the court the fact that the stipulation was not based upon abuse or neglect.
To support Rifqa’s abuse claim they’d have to get into Islamic apostasy law, and they don’t want to do that.
