‘No Evidence’ Rifqa Bary’s Parents Want to Kill Her

US News • Views: 4,260

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.”

(CNN) — A Florida law enforcement report has found no credible evidence that a teenager’s father threatened to kill her for converting from Islam to Christianity.

Rifqa Bary, 17, says a mosque told her family to “deal with the situation” of her Christian conversion.

The 17-year-old girl, Rifqa Bary, ran away from her family in Columbus, Ohio, in July and took refuge in the home of the Rev. Blake Lorenz with the Global Revolution Church in Orlando, Florida. The girl was moved into foster care under the supervision of Florida’s Department of Children and Family after she said in a sworn affidavit that her Muslim father threatened her.

An investigative report by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement was released Monday after a juvenile court seal order expired.

“Our investigation has provided no clear evidence of criminal activity,” said the state report.

Investigators stated they could not find any evidence to support a history of abuse. A teacher at the girl’s high school told investigators she had no reports or evidence of abuse.

The girl had told investigators her father never saw her in her school cheerleading outfit because she feared his disapproval. But investigators stated in the report they saw pictures of the girl in her cheerleading uniform prominently displayed in the living room of the Bary’s Ohio home.

(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.)
