Pamela Geller has been in touch with someone who is very close to Rifqa Bary, and has some chilling new revelations:
On several occasions friends of Rifqa would bring her down to the school counselor because of bruises on her legs and her arms, beatings suffered at the hands of her father and brother (sounds like Islam Said). The middle school, in a serious dereliction of duty, did not report these beatings to child welfare services. Beatings were random, violent, unprovoked. Take, for example, when Rifqa and her father Mohammad were driving in the car. He would force her to wear the hijab, which she hated. In her discomfort she would slouch down, embarrassed, and her father would haul off and sock her in the face so that she never forgot to sit up straight in her costume. The beatings were regular and so much a part of the landscape of Rifqa’s life, she became inured to them, just like Amina and Sarah and Aqsa and every “honor” victim.
There is much more — including Islamic supremacism at the Barys’ home mosque in Ohio. Read it all. And please contact the Governor of Florida and ask him to make sure that Rifqa Bary is not sent back to her parents in Ohio, and that the Department of Children & Families (DCF) keeps custody of her.
People can also call George Sheldon, Secretary of the DCF:
