Rifqa Bary Suffering from Cancer, Her Lawyers Bring in Her Parents
Atlas Shrugs | 05/24/2010 | Pam Gellar

Posted on 05/24/2010 9:59:28 AM PDT by Pyro7480

There has been a terrible development in the case of Rifqa Bary. According to Rifqa, she has been diagnosed with advanced uterine cancer

I ask all Atlas readers to put Rifqa in their prayers.

While this is a tragedy, how she is being victimized by her lawyers and her parents is an atrocity. Her lawyers kept her in the dark about her condition – cancer – for well over a week, while they conferred with her parents and their CAIR appointed lawyers about her treatment. While most cases like this result in a hysterectomy, she is only having the advanced malignancy removed. From what I understand, the survival rate in cases like these is 5%.

Was she allowed to get a second opinion? No.

While she was lying ill, her lawyers brought her parents to her hospital bed. She was strapped down for treatment and became very agitated and upset, and they had to removed. She has broken her silence, a silence mandated by her lawyers, that she could not talk to her friends such as Jamal Jivanjee and those of us who have been unwavering in our support for Rifqa Bary’s civil rights and religious liberty.

Now she is scared. Her entire legal strategy was directed at keeping her safe and securing her immigration status, and here we are at the end of May and she has no immigration status. Upon her birthday in August 2010, she will be an illegal alien, in need of serious chemotherapy and cancer treatment. This is a horror.

She is extremely, extremely young to have uterine cancer, let alone advanced uterine cancer, as uterine cancer usually has significant signs and symptoms for a long period of time before it progresses to an advanced stage.
There are many non-cancerous uterine tumors young women can have, but uterine cancer is very uncommon this early in one’s reproductive years. Is this story confirmed?

seems honor killing has taken a new twist with the muzzies inside America's gates.

"How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property - either as a child, a wife, or a concubine - must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the Queen: all know how to die. But the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world." Winston Churchill, 1899

Don’t be flip. There are plenty of outside interest groups involved in this story and sometimes the truth gets lost in everybody’s spin.

I don't know if she is going to die or not, but it doesn't look good. It doesn't mean that she can't get better if that's what God deems best, and the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob may very well do that -- but we don't know.

However, one thing is for sure, if it does turn out that she does not survive the cancer... it's good that God made it so that she became a Christian before her time came (if it comes to that). God is praised in that regard...

1 Corinthians Chapter 15

50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the
kingdom of God; nor does corruption inherit incorruption.

51 Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall
all be changed--

52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For
the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and
we shall be changed.

53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must
put on immortality.

54 So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal
has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that
is written: "Death is swallowed up in victory."

55 "O Death, where is your sting? O Hades, where is your victory?"

56 The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law.

57 But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord
Jesus Christ.

58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always
abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in
vain in the Lord.

She has already overcome!

“Her lawyers kept her in the dark about her condition – cancer – for well over a week, while they conferred with her parents and their CAIR appointed lawyers about her treatment.”

How about conferring with her? Did she have the chance to talk to doctors and understand her options and survival rates that go with those options? The parents and lawyers shouldn’t push her into choosing the one that has the worst survival rate.

Rifqa Bary is the teenager from Florida who converted to Christianity and left her parents in fear of her life. Her fate has been in a legal battle for some time.

Christian convert runaway Rifqa Bary can stay in Ohio foster care

January 20, 2010|By Rene Stutzman, Orlando Sentinel
The parents of Fathima Rifqa Bary — the Muslim teenager who gave her life to Jesus and then fled to Orlando — have given up their fight to get back their daughter.

In a court in Columbus, Ohio, they agreed Tuesday to let Rifqa, 17, live in an Ohio foster home until she reaches 18 years old in August. After that, she’ll be an adult and will be free to do whatever she wants.

That agreement ended an ugly, often-public six-month ordeal for the girl and her parents.

About 2 weeks ago I was out clearing brush when all of a sudden, out of the blue, Rifqu Bary’s name popped into my head. I had not heard anything about her in several months.

Sometimes this is how God lays someone on my heart to pray for, and so I did - for a couple of days pretty regularly, without a clue as to why.

Now that I know why God put her on my heart to pray for, I’ll keep those prayers up.

This sort of ‘coincidence” might freak a new Christian out - but I’ve gotten used to it long ago, Praise Yeshua.

There can be no doubt that this young lady is still intimately close to the Master’s heart, and in no way will she be forgotten or overlooked.

“Not a sparrow falls” - and precious Sister Rifqa is of much greater worth than a flock of sparrows!

May the power of the Divine be mightily demonstrated in this case, and may G-d be glorified in the process.

I’m sure they made sure she was just sick enough to require sterilization..., er, I mean, removal of just the “malignant” parts. They wouldn’t want her eventually delivering to a Christian husband a rightful child of Mohammed, now would they?

I'm in agreement with your prayer. The church I attend is becoming Cancer-free. Many believers have been healed of all types of cancer in all stages.

Nothing is impossible for the Great Physician.

Sterilization would be the appropriate treatment for advanced uterine cancer - hysterectomy is the appropriate treatment. Which is why this article is highly suspect.

You were saying ...

She is an adult now isnt she?

No, she's not an adult now, and that's why she's been in this hassle with her parents, with her saying that her dad was going to kill here (but she was a minor when she left).

And also, she's an illegal immigrant, too... so it's problems all the way around ...

She'll be 18 a bit later this year, though. The problem is that she can be deported, too -- and that would put her in greater danger of being killed by Muslims "back home" ...
