Rifqa Bary and CAIR

New pics reveal Hamas-linked CAIR’s backstage media coordination in Rifqa Bary case

The picture above shows the parents of Rifqa Bary with Babak Darvish, an official of Hamas-linked CAIR. Here is the whole story: “Pics reveal CAIR backstage coordination of media in Rifqa Bary case and how the media kept silent,” from the Jawa Report, December 14 (thanks to Isabella):

Since early August we have been following the ongoing saga concerning Rifqa Bary, the Ohio Muslim-turned-Christian convert teenager who fled her home to Florida in fear of her life after her family discovered her conversion. Last Friday we reported a motion filed by the Bary’s CAIR attorney with the Ohio court considering Rifqa’s case demanding a ban and seizure of all Christmas cards sent to her from outside parties. We also broke the story of how CAIR officials were allowed to be present as “neutral observers” when the Bary family was interviewed by Florida investigators.

Early on in this case we reported that the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) had convened a strategy session in Rifqa’s hometown of Ohio where they formulated their media strategy in response to the negative press the parents were receiving:

But a source who was inside a secret strategy meeting conducted by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) earlier this week has conveyed the strategy that the media’s favorite Islamist group has devised to respond to the ongoing public relations crisis. According to my source who attended the strategy session, CAIR officials handed out copies of this Orlando Sentinel article and want supporters to push the meme that Christians have brainwashed and abducted this gullible teenage girl. They have also instructed supporters to circulate rumors that Rifqa had been carousing with infidel boys and engaged in acts of immorality. This CAIR strategy takes the focus off the near-universal Islamic legal precepts and Quranic injunctions that demand death for apostates and impugns the character of the innocent girl at the center of this controversy who appears to be in genuine fear for her life if she is returned to her parents.

That media narrative of Rifqa being brainwashed and abducted by a Christian cult was one that was carried by many media outlets, most notably Meredith “Hijab” Heagney of the Columbus Dispatch, Michael Kruse of the St. Petersburg Times, among others. In all their reporting, however, they carefully left the connections of the terror-tied CAIR out of their stories.

But from my source inside CAIR comes new information indicating media complicity with respect to concealing CAIR’s backstage management of the case on behalf of Rifqa’s allegedly abusive parents. Most of the stories by these media hacks featured pictures of the Bary family, such as this photo accompanying an article by the St. Pete Times’ Michael Kruse:

a4s_revolutionary082_81633c.jpgWhat is important about this photograph is not so much what you see as what you don’t see. As the late Paul Harvey said, and now for the rest of the story…

What CAIR’s media allies neglected to mention was that these interviews with the lapdog media were being conducted in the office of CAIR-Columbus executive director Babak Darvish as seen in the following photographs taken in various media interviews.

Go here to see the pictures. In a sane world, this revelation would destroy the credibility of the Kruse/Heagney media coverage of the story for good, as well as the credibility of the parents’ case against Rifqa and attempts to get her back home despite her fears for her life. Would it matter to the case that media interviews with the parents were being conducted in the offices of an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas funding case? Would it matter to the case that media interviews with the parents were being held in the offices of an organization that was known to have held meetings about false talking points it was going to circulate in order to discredit this girl and her defenders?

It should matter. But it doesn’t. For the elites to whom it should matter are just as corrupt and compromised as Kruse, Heagney and co.

Radio Program: Rifqa Bary

October 14, 2009

RADIO JIHAD SHOW |18 Sept. 2009

This show discusses:

Rifqa Bary and why the Islamists around the world are deathly afraid of what she represents as a living apostate. Ms. Bary is now a Joan of Arc capable of leading thousands of other girls, boys, and women who want to leave Political Islam regardless of the death sentence for doing so.

We discuss how US forces have come to the military aid of Muslims in Bosnia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, etc… and for what – we explore the Constitutions of Iraq and Afghanistan.

Fathima’s Fears

By INVESTOR’S BUSINESS DAILY | 22 Sept. 2009

Islamism: A Muslim teen who fled from Ohio to Florida after becoming Christian swears her father will kill her if she goes back home. Florida authorities appear willing to take that chance.

The state believes her fears are unfounded after talking to the devout Muslim father and his lawyers, who work for the Council on American-Islamic Relations. And it’s expected to return her to his care.

Florida conducted a juvenile hearing after the father sued to regain custody of his 17-year-old daughter — Fathima Rifqa Bary — who sought shelter with a Christian family in Orlando after he allegedly threatened to kill her for changing her religion.

In their report, Florida authorities found: “Ms. Bary’s concern that she may be killed because of her conversion from Islam to Christianity remains a subjective and speculative concern.”

Based on the facts of the case — along with prior Muslim father-daughter “honor killings” inside America — we would argue that the concern is, on the contrary, very real. Consider that:

• Bary swore in a court filing that her father confronted her in her bedroom and said: “If you have this Jesus in your heart, you are dead to me!” And then, picking up a laptop as if to hit her, he allegedly added: “I will kill you!” A friend reported the incident to local police.

(The father, Mohamed Bary, admits grabbing the computer but says he meant only to throw it. He denies threatening her life.)

• The daughter also swore that her father punched her in the face on the way to mosque one day because she complained about wearing a hijab. (The father denies striking her.)

• Bary also testified her family’s radical mosque told her father to “deal with the situation” of her Christian conversion, a thinly veiled reference, she says, to honor killing.

The CAIR lawyers assured Florida investigators that there’s no such thing as honor killings in Islam. In fact, there is a requirement in Shariah, or Islamic, law for killing publicly declared apostates, and Bary announced leaving Islam on her Facebook page.

CNN and others in the mainstream media have made an issue of Bary’s truthfulness, and some details of her story don’t hold up. Notably, she said she hid her cheerleading because she feared her father’s disapproval.

But investigators say they saw photos of the girl in her cheerleading uniform prominently displayed in the family room of their Ohio home. (It’s not clear when the photos were put up, however, and investigators confirmed that at least the mother had denied her permission to join the squad.)

Bary’s mother told authorities that her husband believes that if their daughter returns home, she should practice Islam as long as she’s underage and living under their roof. What if she doesn’t? What then?
