Apostate From Islam Watch: Rifqa Bary is ‘Johnsoned’ by Charles Johnson at Little Green Footballs…….

Rifqa Bary: I’ll pray for ya Chuck

Charles Johnson at LGF attempts another try in defeating the Counterjihad with his swipe at a poor defensless girl, a former Muslim who flees her home because of her father’s threat to kill for her conversion to Christianity. Great going Charles Johnson, now Rifqa Bary knows what it’s like to be *Johnsoned* by the Lidless Eye as well.

Charles Johnson: “The anti-Islam blogs have been hyperventilating for months over the case of Rifqa Bary — a Muslim teenager who converted to Christianity, ran away from home, and found a new home with a radical fundamentalist Christian preacher, Blake Lorenz of the “Global Revolution Church.”
People like Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer have injected themselves into this case, judged her parents, and found them guilty of intended murder — because they’re incapable of imagining that Muslim parents might not be murderous monsters. In their twisted paranoid world, all Muslims are honor killers, and that’s all there is to it. Evidence be damned. If her parents say they love her and would never hurt her … well, that’s just what a lying Muslim would say, isn’t it?
Now the Florida Department of Law Enforcement has issued a report on their extensive investigation into the charges that Rifqa Bary’s parents intended to murder her, and it concludes that there is “no evidence whatsoever of alleged abuse or threats of death made by the girl’s parents.”
He then links to a CNN report that mentions the findings of the local police which were lead by the nose during their investigation, by CAIR, a front group of the Muslim Brotherhood. Of course, when an Islamist, fundamentalist organization is giving instructions to the ignorant police on how to approach the situation of apostacy, the end result is assured, and Johnson wants to place the fate of the girl, Rifqa Bary, in CAIR’s hands.
CJ:I’m fairly sure that Spencer and Geller will now attack me, but that’s standard fare for them when they’re caught out espousing bigotry and inciting hatred.”
No Johnson, you’ve been caught playing the stooge for these radicals, which does not come as a surprise since you’ve long given up on the idea that Islam, and the people that actively promote it, pose an existential threat to our liberal values and democratic system of government and rule of law.
Folks, here is the following link to a report by John Guandolo of the FDLE analysis of Rifqa Bary investigation:

[Note: John D. Guandolo is a 12 ½ year veteran of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. At the request of the Center for Security Policy, he prepared an assessment of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement’s (FDLE) investigation of the Ohio-based parents of former Muslim Rifqa Bary, the 17-year old apostate from Islam who has sought refuge in the state of Florida. The FDLE report is provided here, and is available as searchable text for the first time, below his analysis. The significant errors and omissions that Mr. Guandolo and other experts have found in this FDLE investigation show a failure in FDLE’s professional responsibility in handling the Rifqa Bary case. Governor Crist and FDLE management need to get new investigators on the job, start over, and this time do it right. A life may be at stake due to FDLE negligence– and willful blindness– in conducting this investigation.]
John D. Guandolo:
Response to FDLE Investigative Report on Rifqa Bary Matter
Upon my review of the report filed by the FDLE regarding the Rifqa Bary Matter in Florida, I offer my professional opinion.
1. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) Investigative Summary OR-73-1741 encapsulates the investigation into allegations made by Fathima Rifqa Bary (hereafter referred to as “Rifqa Bary”) that she is or may be in physical danger from her father, Mohamed Bary, or others. Point 4 on page 2 of the report states Rifqa Bary believes her life to be in danger from an “honor killing” by her family or others, which she states is in accordance with Islamic Law. The report finds: “Ms. Bary’s concern that she may be killed because of her conversion from Islam to Christianity remains a subjective and speculative concern…” and concludes there is no conspiracy to commit violence against her. The investigators in this matter offer this opinion void of any knowable facts.
In fact, a due diligence review would reveal the existence of authoritative Islamic Law texts officially translated into English. This review would further reveal Islamic Law – which is real law – has requirements and rules as to how to deal with those who leave Islam [eg The Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law, “Umdat al-Salik” also known as “Reliance of the Traveller” – publicly available]. If it can be shown (1) there is a requirement in Islamic Law for killing Ms. Bary as a publicly declared apostate from Islam, (2) that her parents adhere to Islamic Law, and (3) that she did, in fact, leave Islam and convert to Christianity, then the FDLE has a professional responsibility to include these facts in this report, and investigate this matter fully. There is nothing subjective about this – these are all ascertainable facts. I would hope the Florida State’s Attorney’s Office has done their due diligence on this matter and is aware of this


Everything that Rifqa Bary has been saying about her conversion, when she converted, and how, and about the people she met who have been speaking on her behalf, have all checked out. The parents’ stories however, have not, as Pamela Geller’s extensive reporting on the case has shown, but Charles Johnson, in order to try and score some meaningless points against Pamelal Geller and Robert Spencer, chooses to side with the parents, and CAIR, and the little life of Rifqa Bary be damned.
Here is an excerpt from a recent video of rifqa Bary that Pamela Geller’s Atlas Shrugs is running, that validates the girl’s claim that she’s been a Christian for over three years before fleeing from Ohio:

Rifqa: I am sixteen and I love Jesus, I’m crazy how I found the Lord but, people were blown away but, my parents are Muslims, radical, radical Muslims. You guys don’t know the history of Islam, it’s really hostile towards Christianity and the mere word of Christian can bring such a hatred in them right. I’m a secret Chrisitian, I’ve been hiding for a long time, three of four years. They can’t know of my faith, because if they do know, the consquences are really hard. Just the culture and background they come from like, is so hostile towards Chrisianity ….the consequences are great.
Yeah, I’ll choose Rifqa Bary’s credibility over that of her parents, unlike the FINK Charles Johnson, who should now be considered a stooge for CAIR and the Muslim Brotherhood. Here is what Bruce Bawer recently stated in Canada during a conference sponsered by the Canadian chapter of the International Free Press Society, concerning Muslims leaving Islam and the response of those who turn a deaf ear to their plight,….just like Charles Johnson of LGF is doing to Rifqa Bary.

Bruce Bawer: “And in many cases they shamefully close their eyes to honor killings. The murders by parents and siblings, of girls and women who in some cases doing no more than looking at a boy the wrong way, have according to Islamic beliefs, soiled family honor. European authorities are so much a prisoner of multiculturalism that they´could actually believe that their obligation in such matters is not to protect innocent children from brutality, but to display sensitivity to cultural difference.

Within Muslim communities, there are only a very few unimaginably bold men and women, who dare to speak out against the traditional sharia based autocracy of the Mullahs and Imams. And when they did so, they were not defended, let alone praised for it by the government, media or by professors,but were rather accused of betraying their people and rocking the boat. Take the writer Whalid Al-Kalbaisi, who came to Norway from Iraq many years ago, and has recounted a conversation he had with the Ethnic Norwegian Director at what Al-Kalbaisi described as an “international cultural center.

This cultural bureaucrat plainly thought of himself as being devoted heart and soul to the welfare of immigrants, but when Al-Kalbaisi raised the question of the freedom of Muslims to criticize or even leave their own religion, the cultural bureaucrat was displeased. “You are a Muslim Whalid”, he said, “and you must not lose your identity. ” “But do you believe”, Whalid asked, “that I will lose my identity if I believe in the freedom of expression?” “Listen” the man replied, “this is something that you decide yourself, but your attitude causes a lot of problems. We want to create a multicultural society and we don’t want to dissolve these foreign cultures, your attitude alters all our plans, it creates conflicts between immigrants.”

And so it goes, while Western Europe multicultural mentality views native Westerners as individuals, who have an inalienable right to self determination, and views Muslim immigrants as a member of a group with its own collective self definition, and while those within the group who labor to reinforce to enforce that self definition are rewarded. Those who try to live as individuals in ways that are inconsistent with the community orthodoxy, are seen as making problems, creating conflicts. For the only legitimate identity they have in the eyes of European multiculturalists, is a collective identity, an identity yoked entirely and irreparably to skin color, ethnicity and religious background.

If ethnic Europeans choose to belong to any religion or none, but are expected to respect the law, Muslims, as Al.Kalbaisi has pointed out, are seen as quote, religious beings by nature, and therefore as people who cannot be expected to conform to European law and culture, but who cannot be blamed for adhering to the most inhuman of Koranic precepts. It is precisely this kind of thinking, this type of multicultural thinking that has led judges across Europe to give perpetrators of honor killings, not heavier sentences, because their crimes are premeditated, but lighter sentences because their crimes in the eyes of the perpetrators of native cultures are not crimes at all.

Yeah, the Tundra Tabloids will believe the words of Rifqa Bary over that of her parents, and Charles Johnson, any day of the week. KGS

  1. CJ is quite close to declaring Islam a non-problem ("Problem? What problem? Was there ever one?"). He really is returning to his left-wing home, utterly careless about womens' rights or democracy.

    De-linking LGF is an appropriate response.
