Rifqa Barry has cancer; Muslims: "She deserves it"

From FoxNews:
The Muslim teenager from Ohio who converted to Christianity and fled to Florida in fear of retaliation is being treated for an "aggressive" form of uterine cancer, a close friend told FoxNews.com.

Fathima Rifqa Bary, 17, has undergone two operations and has a third scheduled for Thursday, said Jamal Jivanjee, an ordained pastor who heads an Orlando-based ministry.

"The biopsy did come back malignant," Jivanjee told FoxNews.com. "It's a pretty aggressive form of uterine cancer."
While a couple of the comments on this story at Firas Press are sympathetic, others are saying that this is a punishment from Allah about her conversion. One commenter calls her a "traitor and an apostate," while another says "To hell with her and good riddance."
