Assigned Reading: Rifqa vs. Goliath
(FROM: Atlas Shrugs)
I’m not certain how many of you have been following the story of Rifqa Bary, the 17-year-old Ohio girl who fled to Florida from her home because her father and family threatened to kill her for converting from Islam to Christianity. Currently, a Florida judge has allowed Rifqa to stay in Florida until a hearing on September 3, 2009 which will decide whether or not she is to return to her parents.
Pam Geller, who has always been on top of the creeping tide of radical Islam into America and American life at Atlas Shrugs, and this case is no different. Her extensive background work can be found by clicking HERE.
In the meantime, Rifqa Bary faces an uphill battle. I’m not certain that America and the American people are ready to address and discuss the brutal realities of radical Islam, the same realities which have manifested themselves in the form of the honor killings across Canada and throughout Europe occurring at a quickening pace.
Please take a few minutes and read Pam’s materials on Rifqa. I’m doing the same. This is a truly remarkable and courageous young woman who has been injected into a struggle larger than any of us can comprehend. She could very well be the catalyst for the awakening with regard to radical Islam that we need here in our nation, sadly detached from such realities.
