Mr. Stemberger, a US lawyer who successfully defended Rifqa Bary, a teenage Christian convert from Islam, has had his organisation’s website destroyed by a Muslim hacker. Mr Stemberger represented Rifqa Bary, who hit the headlines last year when she told US media that she would not be safe with her Muslim parents and feared an ‘honour killing’. Her father has denied the allegations. Mr Stemberger’s pro-family organisation, the Florida Family Policy Council (FFPC), said that a Muslim hacker had managed to access their website, disabling parts of it and interfering with the inner workings of the site in September 2010. The hacker left an “obscene message on the events page explaining in broken English who he was and why he was hacking the site”, according to Mr Stemberger. It is reported that the message included references to the organisation’s views on “the Great Islam”. We thank the Christian Institute for this report.
