Hero's Welcome For Lockerbie Terrorist's Return To Libya
The man who helped blow up a jetliner 21 years ago over Lockerbie, Scotland, killing 270 persons, including 189 Americans, receives a hero's welcome from thousands of his fellow Muslims. When Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed Al Megrahi stepped off the jet the country's leader dispatched to bring him home to Triipoli, Libyan Prsident Gadhafi's son personally escorted him off the plane with the roaring approval of the thousands waving flags who gathered to welcome him home. President Barack Hussein Obama pleaded with Libyan officials to avoid this very scene after his pleas to Scottish officials not to release him failed. Scottish officials decided to release Megrahi from prison early because he is dying of prostate cancer. Megrahi denies he committed the crime of which he was convicted. He served only eight years of a life sentence for his crime. Meanwhile, back in America, a 17-year-old Rifqa Bary pleads with her fellow Americans to understand that she will be murdered by her own family because she committed one of the worst conceivable acts in Islam--she converted to Christianity. Bary ran away from her home in Columbus, Ohio to Florida after fearing her life would be taken by the hands of her own father.
