Better dead than Christian. From WorldNetDaily.com, with thanks to all who sent this in:
A Christian woman who once served as an FBI informant on her husband’s alleged support of terrorism now is seeking divorce from the self-described radical Muslim who told her he would be proud if their two teen sons blew themselves up for Allah.
But she’s finding herself on her own — completely — after a judge allowed her lawyer to withdraw, refused to allow an interested lawyer from appearing in her court, and then refused to allow time for any other replacement to be found before today’s trial.
At stake are Rosine Collin Ghawji’s sons, whose futures have been defined by her husband as being “good Muslims” or dead, she said.
The situation is developing in the case in which Mrs. Ghawji is seeking not only her freedom from her husband, Maher Ghawji, but also to protect her sons Louis and Takek from any violent Islamic plans their father may have for them.
Joe Kaufman, who has run an anti-terrorism organization for several years, noted that both of the Ghawji sons have, in e-mails and other communications, told friends their father was planning to take them to Syria against their will, and one noted that his grandfather has promised to beat him up when he arrived there.
Mrs. Ghawji’s local lawyer was given permission by a Memphis, Tenn., judge on Dec. 19 to withdraw from the case, another lawyer willing to represent her — Larry Klayman — was denied permission to enter the case, and the court ruled that the trial date — today — would not be delayed.
Klayman, who’d been contacted about the case a few months earlier, told WND that the facts read “like a John Grisham novel.” Only this case is real life, with the FBI holding ex parte meetings with the judge, the federal agency “wiring” her to record and report on her husband, her husband allegedly threatening the children that they would be better off dead than Christian, and allegations of extramarital affairs.
