Rifqa Bary, 17, who converted from Islam to Christianity, has been ordered by a Florida judge back to Columbus, Ohio, where her fate will be left in the hands of the courts there. Rifqa genuinely fears that she could be killed in an Islamic "honor killing." Considering the fact that the Qu'ran teaches that anyone who converts from Islam should be killed, her fears could be justified-- “Kill those who join other gods” (Sura 2:256)--, and considering that thousands of "honor killings" are committed within the Muslim world every year, her fears are not without merit.
