In The American Thinker today, Pamela Geller chronicles the ongoing CAIR machinations and chicanery in the Rifqa Bary apostasy case:
There is a war of attrition going on in the Rifqa Bary case. Rifqa is the girl who converted from Islam to Christianity and fled from her family in fear for her life — and the Islamic machine is attempting to wear her down, grind her down by constant mental abuse. The persecution is so obvious, and yet so mundane that no one seems to take notice. The banality of evil.
Some sources say that a Muslim psychiatrist was assigned to Rifqa while she was in Florida, where she fled from her Ohio home (now she has been returned to Ohio, where she is in foster care.) How cruel and inhuman. And Omar Tarazi, the CAIR-linked lawyer for Rifqa’s parents, asked the court to hold her in contempt to force her to attend counseling sessions with a Muslim counselor. The counselor that her parents were demanding she see also filed an affidavit in support of Rifqa being held in contempt. Psychological abuse, that’s what that was.
The Barys’ lawyer had also demanded that all the Christmas cards sent to Rifqa in the Christmas card campaign for Rifqa that I originated at my website AtlasShrugs.com be banned and seized. Rifqa has received hundreds, perhaps thousands of cards — and the Islamic machine saw every one of them as a threat. They wanted Rifqa isolated from everyone except those who will break down her resistance and run roughshod over her conscience and her religious freedom. The judge ruled against them on that one Tuesday. But the fact that it was even an issue was the real issue.
The Barys, in league with the Islamic machine, are now prosecuting their pious, straight-A honor student daughter on a fallacious charge of “waywardness.” Further, they hope to prosecute any friend of Rifqa who helped her. Why? Because she converted out of Islam. The pastor who took Rifqa in and provided her shelter when he fled to Florida is constantly being threatened by CAIR-appointed attorneys with some trumped-up charge. Why? Clearly to discourage anyone from helping apostates escape Islam.
The latest warning is that Brian Williams, a missionary and the pastor in Ohio who baptized Rifqa, may very well be arrested. He was, at one time, a big brother to her — unlike her actual brother Rilvan Bary. Rifqa has made no secret about not wanting to see her brother and has repeatedly refused, and with good reason. Rilvan Bary is a hooligan who in October leaked her whereabouts to a Muslim stalker-blogger. Rilvan gave the address of Rifqa’s Florida foster family to San Francisco-based Islamic blogger Davi Barker, who then bragged at his blog that he knew Rifqa’s present location and issued this veiled threat: “I’ll tell you one thing reader… if she’s not safe in Ohio, she’s not safe in Florida.”
No one involved in Rifqa’s case in Florida or Ohio took note of this threat, or of Rilvan’s role in it. But Brian Williams and the Florida pastor who took Rifqa in may very well be arrested; they have been so warned. Making this even more ironic is the fact that Rilvan Bary has been arrested — for underage drinking — and brags in lurid language about his sexual prowess on his Facebook, MySpace, Windows Live pages. Typical of Islamic misogyny, misplaced priorities and encouragement of the worst behavior in males is the fact that Mohamed Bary was enraged by his daughter’s conversion to Christianity, but seems to have had nothing to say about his son’s sleazy sexual trolling on the Internet….
