'I saw her eyes': Mom dons burqa, rescues kidnapped son in Egypt
Fox News ^ | April 28, 2013 | Joshua Rhett Miller

Posted on 04/28/2013 5:28:02 PM PDT by daniel1212

Through the slit of the burqa she wore to blend in on the streets of Alexandria, Egypt, Kalli Atteya waited and watched until the boy climbed off the school bus. When she saw him, she moved quickly, grabbing his arm and steering him toward the waiting motorized cart.

"Get in," she said to the 12-year-old, who recognized his mother's piercing blue eyes and obeyed wordlessly.

Soon, they were speeding toward a safehouse where they would wait for three weeks before returning to the U.S., and ending a 20-month ordeal that began with another abduction — one the boy, Khalil Mohamed “Niko” Atteya, did not accept willingly. His father, Mohamed Atteya, who is wanted by the U.S. authorities, is accused of luring the mother and son to his homeland, then snatching the boy and leaving Kalli Atteya and her sister on the side of a desolate road between Cairo and Port Said on Aug. 1, 2011.

“My Dad forced me to be Muslim, which I did not want to do,” Niko, who has been back in Pennsylvania for more than a month, told FoxNews.com.

A world away, he had a determined mother who would spare no expense and even risk her own safety to save her boy. After a torturous struggle that included false leads, false hopes and more than $100,000 spent, Kalli Atteya finally showed what the love and determination of a mom can do...

“Three months after our boy was born, he left,” Kalli Atteya told FoxNews.com. “He moved back to Harrisburg, and he dated many, many women. I tried to save my marriage but it didn’t work. Basically, he married me for a visa.”..

With each new bit of hope came a new charge until she had spent more than $100,000..

And for each one of these, there’s a thousand unsaid stories that don’t work out as well.

"Dont fall for the lies of Muslim men...."

That doesn't worry me for at least a couple reasons. But it seems like there are American women who think it's exotic or something to date a Muslim. Then when it's too late, the reality sets in.

She has great love, but she isn’t much in the brain department.

What the hell is a good American woman thinking of getting tied up to a Muslim.Why not just shoot yourself and have a lot less pain.

Never take “gifts” for the family back home if your new hubby is not flying with you.

Your post #16

...and unattractive American men are just about he prey of any bimbo from any 3rd world country...

Your comment brought to mind a particular tragedy which was indicated on national television. In this case it was a Russian woman who came over to America. I would not bother with this normally, but it does need an added caution.

The American man was not too bad in looks, but just an ordinary Joe. A bit overweight too. The Russian bride was incredible in looks. She had a body of an athelete and looks to go with it. Once established she told the man to go and fish, or something like that.

It ended in tragedy. No need to go into that, but her poor parents were bought over to the United States because of her death. One could see the mismatch here. She was a knockout in looks. Excuse the ramble but, guys should look around for a soul mate right in their own back yard.

“First good use of a burkka”

Oh, I don’t know.... ;-)

Top 10 Reasons Why Wearing a Burqa Wouldn’t Be So Bad

1. No more bad hair days.

2. You save a fortune on cosmetics.

3. Everbody’s measurements look the same - 50-50-50.

4. Buying a 52-pack of Hefty lawn and leaf bags provides you with an entire year’s wardrobe.

5. You can smuggle several hoagies and an entire cooler full of beer into a football game.

6. Never shave again!

7. Your age and weight would always be your secret.

8. You can stare at people or give them dirty looks with impunity.

9. No more tossing out perfectly good clothes because they are out of style.

10. As long as you don’t snore, you can sleep through useless meetings, boring sermons, and even bad dates.
