CAIR attorney withdraws motion to ban and seize Christmas cards for Rifqa Bary
Interesting developments today in the Rifqa Bary saga. As we reported here first earlier this month, Omar Tarazi, the CAIR-backed attorney representing the Bary parents, had filed a motion with the Franklin County courts demanding a ban and seizure of all Christmas cards sent to Rifqa.
Apparently stung by the public exposure that our JAWA EXCLUSIVE brought to the situation, Tarazi withdrew his motion during the hearing today as reported by Fox News.
Needless to say, this has caused great consternation to CAIR's media allies carrying their water, namely Meredith "Hijab" Heagney of the Columbus Dispatch, who filed a short article making no mention of Christmas cards (as Tarazi's motion did), only calling them "third-party messages". Heh.
Another important matter was whether the court was going to force Rifqa to participate in mediation sessions with her parents, who she doesn't want to see. The court ruled in her favor saying that individual counseling sessions would suffice. Another issue that was raised was the concern that Rifqa may be suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Gee, wonder where she got that? Not like anybody's threatened to kill her because of her Christian faith or anything. Oh, wait...
Merry Christmas, Rifqa!
