An Orlando, Florida, attorney has filed court documents to support his contention that a Columbus, Ohio-area mosque has ties to terrorist groups and would present a clear and present danger to a 17-year-old Christian convert from Islam who fled to Florida in fear of her life.
OneNewsNow reported on Monday, Rifqa Bary fled from her parents after she claims her father threatened to kill her when he learned from members of his mosque, the Noor Islamic Cultural Center in Columbus, Ohio, that Rifqa converted from Islam to Christianity. Rifqa is staying with a Christian foster family in Orlando pending a court hearing this Thursday.
Her father says Rifqa can practice any religion she wants and that he only wants her to return home. But Orlando attorney John Stemberger said in a telephonic news conference on Monday afternoon that Rifqa fears for her life, and that Rifqa's family is heavily involved with the Noor Islamic Cultural Center.
"The primary issue in the case is the clear and present danger that is presented by the Noor Center mosque and its ties to terrorist activity. We believe that the facts are there that support the allegation that this mosque has ties to terrorist activity," he notes. "Rifqa's affidavit indicates that her parents were regularly involved with this mosque."
Stemberger points out it was the Noor Center that tipped off Rifqa's family about her conversion to Christianity.

Why are our centers of government attractions for extremist Muslims?
Could it be that they are also an attraction for liberals and that the two have a sordid symbiotic relationship?
How is it that parents are entitled to ‘custody’ over an unwilling 17 year old?
I’m kind of hoping that the case will be tied up in Florida courts until she turns 18. Then the case will be moot.
God help this poor girl, as I have little faith in the “legal” system for her.
