Why are any of them still in the U.S.

They came on a visa for Rifqa's eye surgery and illegally over stayed their visas.

Now they want to be rewarded for being here illegally for over a decade.

What has the family been doing to support themselves since it would have been illegal for them to work?

Who is paying for all Rifqa's expenses?

Sri Lanka was under the British Crown and all former subjects have the right to return to Britain- WHERE HEALTH CARE IS FREE!

They should never have been admitted in the first place.

"Rifqa Bary will not be forced to undergo chemotherapy for uterine cancer, which her doctors say is no longer detectable in her body."

Rifqa's parents wanted her dead, CAIR wanted her dead and even The Dispatch's Meredith Heagney blew Rifqa off and ridiculed her.

Very, very poor.

Thankfully, Rifqa will be an adult soon and can carry on to live her life without the meddling of those who wish her harm.

Interested in Kort Gatterdam's assertion that Rifqa merely went to a "prayer conference" and asked for prayer before treatment--not a faith healing event. Googling around, it does appear that a faith healing event, a big one, took place in Youngstown at about the right time. From their advertising:

"In this hour, God is demonstrating this power through his people in very practical ways ....

*Supernatural power to fix failing marriages.
*Power and wisdom to get out of debt and poverty.
*The power to walk in the Shalom peace of God which means wholeness and completeness.
*The power of divine health and protection.

These things are truly signs and wonders for this generation to see.

Come join us in an atmosphere of faith and get activated to believe and do the works of the Father. Hear the Gospel of the Kingdom of God and see it released through your life in a greater way.

Receive YOUR miracle which has been paid for by the finished work of Christ!"

There is more. But--it does seem as though a faith healing event was indeed held in Youngstown.

If people want to die, let them die. These people hope that the magic spirits will save him, let them be disappointed.
