Rifqa Bary Death Threat: Exhibit A, The Document: FATWA (Death Penalty) for Apostasy

UPDATE: Hearing today on procedural matters at 3pm at the Thomas S. Kirk Juvenile Justice Center in Orlando. There are several motions that Judge Dawson has to consider. One motion may be an effort by the Barys’ attorney, Shayan "Shaytan" Elahi, to have John Stemberger removed as Rifqa’s personal attorney.

I received this document from Oda Dridi-Dörffel, Parliament (Bundestag), Ministry of the Interior, the Army (Bundeswehr), Ministry of Integration and the Police organizations. Oda Dridi-Dörffel is an esteemed figure in international circles.

Here Oda Dridi-Dörffel presents the actual fatwa issued at Al-Azhar University in Cairo, the most important institution of islamic law in the sunni world, and where here and here.)

Obama describes Al-Azhar University 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".

Proof of the fatal threat against Rifqa Bary:

Here is the fatwa, proof that death "is a very normal part of Islamic law for apostasy
and for every muslim its an honor to CLEAN the umma if Rifqa is dead".


Fatwa committee concerning the case of a
man who converted to Christianity: "Since he left the Islam, he will
be invited to express his regret. If he does not regret, he will be killed
pertaining to rights and obligations of the Islamic law."

 Hallo, Pamela Geller.

Sorry for my English:

I follow the Rifqa Bary  case from the beginning. You make a brilliant job!!!

I’m an adviser (in the background) for Islam/Terror/Migration for the Parliament (Bundestag), Ministry of the Interior, the Army (Bundeswehr), Ministry of Integration and the Police organisations.


I have for you a very important document:

A fatwa from university of Al-Azhar in Cairo, the most important institution
of islamic law in the sunni world:

In all opportunities I present this fatwa in front of muslims in public (conferences..),
the reaction of muslims was the same: releases, threats, denial and totally dis inhibiting.

The Non-Muslims in the conference were absolutely shocked about these reactions.

A view behind the curtain of the system of muslim lies.

You need this fatwa as a proof that death is a very normal part of islamic law for apostasy
and for every muslim its an honor to CLEAN the umma if Rifqa is dead.


Legal opinion on apostasy by a Fatwa committee concerning the case of a
man who converted to Christianity: "Since he left the Islam, he will be
invited to express his regret. If he does not regret, he will be killed
pertaining to rights and obligations of the Islamic law."

Author: al-Azhr, the Egyptian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs
This Fatawa describes how an Egyptian man turned apostate and the
subsequent punishment prescribed for him by the Al-Azhr Fatawa council.
The following translation is a rough guide:

In the Name of Allah the Most Beneficient the Most Merciful.


Council of Fatawa.

This question was presented by Mr. Ahmed Darwish and brought forward by [name obscured] who is of German nationality.

A man whose religion was Islam and his nationality is Egyptian
married a German Christian and the couple agreed that the husband would
join the Christian faith and doctrine.

1) What is the Islamic ruling in relation to this man? What are the punishments prescribed for this act?

2) Are his children considered Muslim or Christian?

The Answer:

All praise is to Allah, the Lord of the Universe and salutations
on the leader of the righteous, our master Muhammed, his family and all
of his companions.


This man has committed apostasy; he must be given a chance to
repent and if he does not then he must be killed according to Shariah.

As far as his children are concerned, as long as they are
children they are considered Muslim, but after they reach the age of
puberty, then if they remain with Islam they are Muslim, but if they
leave Islam and they do not repent they must be killed and Allah knows

Proof doesn't stop Michael Kruse from displaying his profound asshattery skills. Robert takes him apart here:

Kruse is yet another mainstream media pseudo-journalist who
relentlessly pursues a politically correct multiculturalist agenda, and
the facts be damned. You can see previous discussion of this
"reporter's" casual acquaintance with the truth here.

Yesterday in the St. Petersburg Times he continued his campaign to
discredit Rifqa Bary, the girl who says her father threatened to kill
her for converting from Islam to Christianity, and her defenders. A
girl's life is a stake, but who cares? The gods of political
correctness must be appeased.

"How real are runaway's fears?," by Michael Kruse for the St. Petersburg Times, September 19 (thanks to Kinana):

Will religious runaway Rifqa Bary be killed if she's sent home to Ohio?

is the 17-year-old girl who fled to Florida in July because she's
terrified that her Muslim family has to murder her due to her
conversion to Christianity.

Authorities in both states say
there's no "credible" threat against her. Investigators from the
Florida Department of Law Enforcement say her fear is "subjective and
speculative." Her parents say they don't want to hurt her and just want
her back.

On the FDLE report, see this analysis
of its many flaws by a veteran FBI agent. As for what her parents say,
what does anyone realistically expect them to say? Even if everything
Rifqa Bary has said that they said to her is true, does Michael Kruse,
or the FDLE, or the Governor of Ohio, or anyone else actually think
that they're going to say, "Yes, of course we want to kill her, now
send her back to us so that we can slit her throat!"? Also, other
fathers who have threatened to kill their daughters have lured them
back home with assurances that all is forgiven — only to murder them
when they return. These include Yaser Said, the father of Amina and
Sarah Said, who were murdered in Texas on New Year's Day 2008, and
Mohammed Parvez, father of Aqsa Parvez, who was murdered in Canada in
2007. Do we really want to take that kind of a chance with Rifqa Bary's

She's living with a foster family as a court in Orlando
tries to decide what to do with her. The next hearing is Monday
afternoon. Attorneys for her parents are expected to argue that the
case should be shifted to Ohio.

This is a good time to pause for a bit and take another look at her Aug. 10 interview with local TV. It remains this ongoing story's primary source.

"I'm fighting for my life!" she said in her nearly seven-minute interview with Orlando's WFTV. "You guys don't understand!"

Let's understand then.

"Imagine the honor in killing me," she said. "It's in the Koran."

It's not. Here's what is.

that this supposedly "objective" journalist does not simply report —
as would a genuinely objective journalist — that some people say that
the Koran mandates the killing of apostates and that some people say it
doesn't. Instead, he sets himself up as judge in the case and decides
it all for you. To be sure, he trots out witnesses in his show trial,
including me, but he has already delivered his verdict: Is the death
penalty for apostates in the Koran? "It's not."

verse: "If any of you turn back from their faith and die in unbelief,
their works will bear no fruit in this life and in the Hereafter; they
will be companions of the Fire and will abide therein."

Another verse: "If they turn renegades, seize them and slay them wherever ye find them."

are parts of the two verses Robert Spencer cites to support his belief
that Bary will be killed because Islam says she must be killed.

don't think Rifqa Bary "will be killed because Islam says she must be
killed." That would be asinine, and I expect Kruse knows that. I think
Rifqa Bary might be killed because she says that her father
said he would kill her, and because there is abundant support in Islam
for the idea that apostates should be killed. Michael Kruse wants to
gamble with her life. I don't.

There's more numb-nuttery. Read it all.
