A controversial mosque in Ohio is now the focus of attention in the case of a Christian convert from Islam.
On Monday, an attorney for Rifqa Bary, the 17-year-old girl who ran away from her Ohio home, gave the court information detailing ties the mosque has to terrorism.
Attorney John Stemberger believes that the Noor Center, which her parents are members of, represents "a clear and present danger" to his client.

"As this facility is the spiritual home and directly connected to the Bary family's daily and weekly life … concerns about the mosque's leadership and ideology are critical to understanding the potential threat to Rifqa Bary," Stemberger said in a Monday telephone news conference.
Bary fled to Florida last month, claiming her parents threatened to kill her after they discovered that she had converted to Christianity.
"This is just not some threat," the 17-year-old warned with tears in her eyes. "This is truth. This is reality."
A Florida judge ruled earlier this month that Bary can stay in foster care in Florida until another hearing on her case is held. The judge will decide this week whether Barry should remain in Florida or be returned to her parents in Ohio.
