Hamas-Linked CAIR Supervised Police Interview of Rifqa Bary’s Parents on Abuse Allegations

We have blogged often about a girl, Rifqa Bary, 17, who ran away from her Muslim family after converting to Christianity, out of fear for her life.
Yesterday, we blogged on a report filed by Florida State officials that stated they couldn’t find any evidence that her life was in danger. This finding seemed to be somewhat acceptable until I looked at all the evidence they hadn’t considered.
Today though, we found out, from Robert Spenser’s Jihad Watch and the Jawa Report, that members of The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), were invited to go with the Florida officials as they investigated her parents.
Now aside from the fact that they had no relationship to this investigation and should never have been included, keep in mind that CAIR is, according to Jihad Watch, “an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case — so named by the Justice Department. CAIR operatives have repeatedly refused to denounce Hamas and Hizballah as terrorist groups. Several former CAIR officials have been convicted of various crimes related to jihad terror. CAIR’s cofounder and longtime Board chairman, as well as its chief spokesman, have made Islamic supremacist statements.”
Not exactly a reliable “expert” to include in an investigation. The lack of findings by the Florida officials makes a lot more sense now.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case — so named by the Justice Department. CAIR operatives have repeatedly refused to denounce Hamas and Hizballah as terrorist groups. Several former CAIR officials have been convicted of various crimes related to jihad terror. CAIR’s cofounder and longtime Board chairman, as well as its chief spokesman, have made Islamic supremacist statements.

Florida law enforcement officials should have shunned this unsavory group. Instead, they let them supervise their investigation. Is it any surprise, then, that the FDLE found no evidence of abuse?

“Terror front CAIR supervised police interview of Rifqa Bary’s parents on abuse allegations,” from the Jawa Report, September 14:

A report by the Florida Dept of Law Enforcement (FDLE) that has been sealed by the court investigating the Rifqa Bary abuse and honor killing allegations is set to be released today. While the report is still sealed, we can report based on law enforcement sources who have read the report that the FDLE interview of Rifqa’s parents was supervised by Hamas front organization, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). According to my sources, this is what the report says:

“FDLE/DCF Investigators were accompanied to the Bary residence by Sgt. John Hurst of the Columbus P.D. Child Abuse Squad. The residence is located in an apartment complex. Mr. Babak Darvish, Executive Director of the Council for American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), Columbus and Mr. Romin Iqbal, Staff Attorney for CAIR OHIO were present. Investigators interviewed Mr. Bary in a non-custodial setting.”

What makes this decision by FDLE and the FL Dept of Children and Families to allow CAIR- who is not a party to the legal dispute and has not notified the court that they are representing the Barys in any legal capacity – is that FDLE/DCF conducted a three and a half hour interrogation of Rifqa, the victim in this case, without her attorney and guardian ad litem being present. We reported on that revelation 10 days ago….

CAIR’s bloody fingerprints have been all over this case while they have remained behind the scenes. As we noted on August 21st, a source who attended a CAIR strategy session on the Rifqa case had stated that CAIR intended to push the story that Rifqa had been abducted and brainwashed by a Christian cult.

Florida Gov. Charlie Crist ought to be ashamed to allow his FDLE and DCF goons behave in such an unprofessional and grossly political manner. Crist has clearly endorsed FDLE/DCF’s conduct all in order to whitewash this investigation and send Rifqa back to her family and place her back in harm’s way to placate the gods of political correctness and to avoid jeopardizing his US Senate race next year. Here’s the contact information for Crist and DCF if you would like to tell them what you think about their handling of this case:Governor Charlie Crist’s office: Phone: (850) 488-4441, (850) 488-7146
