The wolves are howling for this opastate
The Tundra Tabloids dear friend and colleague, Pamela Geller
from Atlas Shrugs
, is interviewed by FPM’s Jamie Glazov, about the Rifqa Bary court hearing the other day. There is much, much more in store ahead, like the status of the Bary family, and as soon as Pamela posts more info on it, I’ll post it as an update. This time it’s how
Mr.Bary has lied through his teeth about his status in the US, ever since he spoke with the police and the court system. Pamela has already posted a piece about it. KGS
UPDATE: Read it all here.
ATLAS EXCLUSIVE BREAKING Mohamed Bary’s Missing Immigration Documents: Status ILLEGAL:
“Check out Mohamed Bary’s missing immigration documents. Mr. Bary lost his application for amnesty. He lost his appeal for reconsideration of the administrative law judge’s denial of that amnesty application, (or, application for change of status to temporary resident legal alien, to be more precise.) Mohamed Bary made contradictory allegations as to his residency, and he obviously committed perjury.
He and his family are subject to immediate deportation and further exclusion. He claimed he came to America to tend to Rifqa’s eye, when in fact he came illegally through Mexico (according to the document) and the “doting” father never got Rifqa medical treatment.
For the several months the attorneys for Rifqa Bary’s parents have been promising to produce their immigration documents. And yet they still have failed to produce them. First, Craig McCarthy (since discharged) and then the new, improved, CAIR-approved Shayan “Shaytan” Elahi repeatedly promised to produce them here and here and here and here. The Barys have ten days before they are in contempt of court. My money says they are going to say the documents are lost.”
[…] The media refuses to discuss apostasy, but the motive behind the threat is apostasy. It is verboten in the court room.
There is an upside. The parents have been very dodgy, dishonest even, on their immigration status. Time and time again they have ignored court orders to produce copies of their immigration documents. This is a key issue, because when Rifqa ran away, her mother had packed all of the family’s belongings and said they were going back to Sri Lanka. This is what I believe the family, the community, CAIR, and the Islamic machine really wants: to get Rifqa back to Sri Lanka.
I asked an apostate from Sri Lanka who showed up at the hearing yesterday to provide moral support for Rifqa, if Rifqa would be safe in Sri Lanka (not a Muslim majority country). She said,
“No. She will die, she will die in her society. Society won’t leave her alone. Even if the family, Mother and Father has a little sympathy, but not society, society is worse because she has gone too far. The society will never leave the family in peace. They have to take a stand for this, because it is the shame. Rifqa has brought a shame for their religion and for their society.”
The judge is aware of this, because he ruled he would not release Rifqa until the family’s immigration documents were submitted to the court. Then Mohamed Bary’s lawyer, belligerent and rude, made all sorts of wild accusations. He alleged that John Stemberger (Rifqa’s lawyer) was going to kidnap Rifqa and “squirrel her out of the country”. When in fact that appears to be the Islamic plan, but that is typical: blame it on “right wing extremists” or “anti-Muslim bigots”. Hence the insane accusations in the court room. But the bottom line is Rifqa will not leave Florida until the immigration papers are filed. And the Bary lawyer has been threatened with contempt should he not produce them.
This is a tinderbox. But for now, Rifqa is safe in Florida. If the issue is not resolved by the end of October, a judicial review has been tentatively scheduled for November 10. I do not believe the parents will provide the documents. And then? Stay tuned.
FP: What are the possibilities if the parents do not provide the documents?
Geller: It’s anyone’s guess. The whole family could be deported. The risk to Rifqa’s life is considerable. The sooner Rifqa’s defense team has the documents, the sooner her status can be addressed. There are several different approaches to securing her safety. A person seeking asylum may do so from inside the US and does not have to leave and petition for re-entry. That is the advantage. Religious asylum is seldom granted though. Perhaps Rifqa could file a claim on a civil rights violation (a CAIR move) against her parents.
The question of jurisdiction may appear to be settled but it is not. Dawson said he doesn’t plan to release her until he sees the Bary immigration documents. It will be interesting.
FP: Why do you think there is such silence about apostasy when this is actually causing the case itself? The media is saying nothing about this.
Geller: It’s indicative of how sick our society has become. Spinelessness and ignorance are a lethal combination. Apostasy is the motive behind the death threat. Period. Of course the FDLE found no evidence of a threat, they did not investigate threats of a religious nature. Perhaps the upside (if there could be such a thing) to this terrible case is that the media is being exposed for their conquered, dhimmi approach to the story. And that is why new media/alternative reporting was so critical to this story.
FP: Overall, what do you think this case has signified? What has been its meaning? What have your own impressions been?
Geller: This is a landmark case on so many levels. The obvious is the media’s auto-censorship. Their bias is so fixed that they would rather put a teenage girl’s life at risk than report the story. Why wouldn’t they err on the side of caution? What is Rifqa Bary so terrified of? The media’s indifference is devastating.
It’s the proverbial teaching moment. Why isn’t the media giving Wafa Sultan, Ibn Warraq, Nonie Darwish and any of the thousands of apostates living in the shadows, front page exposure in the media, to help push back, push Islamic supremacism back to the fringe of civilization?
Further, this case pits Sharia law and its absolutism against the rule of law in America. If we turn a blind eye to the execution of sharia law in our society, is that not our sanction? Are we not complicit if we are not vigilant?
The silence of the media, pundits, law enforcement, psychologists, the court system renders the girls, the women, the men murdered in the name of Islam nothing more than a rumor. They are invisible and count for nothing. It speaks volumes to the West’s respect and sanctity of life.
The larger picture is the clash of civilizations, a clash of human systems. The battle is for our very soul.
President Obama addressed the Muslim world in June from Al Ahzar University in Cairo where a fatwa (death penalty) was issued for apostasy. The President described Al Azhar. this way: “For over a thousand years, Al-Azhar has stood as a beacon of Islamic learning, and for over a century, Cairo University has been a source of Egypt’s advancement.”
In that same speech Obama declared, ”….the United States government has gone to court to protect the right of women and girls to wear the hijab and to punish those who would deny it.”
Well, what about the right of women and girls not to wear the hijab?
America is the greatest, the noblest, and in its original founding principles, the first and last moral country (save Israel) in the history of the world – what happened?
FP: What can we do to help Rifka?
Geller: Call, write, fax, snail mail, Governor Charlie Crist, gently persuasively. Every day.
