    Circumstances of Disappearance

    Al-Omary was last seen in Jonesboro, Arkansas on August 14, 1997. She was abducted by her non-custodial father, Abdulbaset A.M. Al-Omary during a court ordered visitation.
    Abdul phoned Machael's mother, Margaret, the night of August 14, 1997 from Saudi Arabia. The message on the phone call said: "Hi Margaret, how's it going?. We are calling here from Saudi Arabia... and Misshi (Heidi) is here with me. She says, Hi. I'm willing to make a deal. If you wish to have further communications with your darling daughter, you drop all charges of child support and not bother me when I return here to the United States. I'll call you sometime in the future. Good Bye."
    Abdul called Margaret about 10 minutes later. He demanded no child support in the future, he wanted full custody of Heidi, and for her to drop all court judgments against him.
    Margaret begged him for the return of Heidi and stated that no charges would be pressed. Abdul allowed Heidi to talk to her mom for a brief few seconds. That was the last time Margaret ever spoke to her daughter.
    An International Parental Kidnapping warrant was issued for the abductor on August 20, 1997.
    Machael and Abdulbaset are thought to be in Saudi Arabia. They may have also travelled to Sweden.

    This is such a horrible case. I can only imagine how helpless her mother Margaret must feel-- knowing who has her daughter and where they are (generally), but not being able to get to her, or even talk to her on the phone.

    Pages with more information about Machael Heidi:

    It reminds me a lot of Maureen Dabbagh and her daughter Nadia. Nadia was taken to Saudi Arabia and then Syria by her father in 1992 and her mother has also had no contact with her since then.

    Machel's Poster. Please hang it up on phone poles, windows, public bulletin boards, etc. Every little bit helps!

    I would also like to add that Machel's father, Abdulbaset, is violent and has a very bad temper. She should not be in his custody.

    When Abdulbaset called Margaret, this is the message he left on her machine:

    "Hi Margaret, how's it going?. We are calling here from Saudi Arabia... and Misshi (Heidi) is here with me. She says, Hi. I'm willing to make a deal. If you wish to have further communications with your darling daughter, you drop all charges of child support and not bother me when I return here to the United States. I'll call you sometime in the future. Good Bye."

    He called her again ten minutes later and he said that he wanted full custody of Heidi and all charges to be dropped. Margaret got to talk to Heidi for a few seconds.

    It has been eleven years since Adulbaset kidnapped Heidi. It is time for her to come home to her mother and family who loves and misses her.
    If you have ANY INFORMATION, PLEASE call the police or the Jonesboro PD at 870-935-556. They are probably in Saudi Arabia or Sweden. Abdulbaset has relatives in Jiddah and Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

    This is such a heartbreaking story, the mother did get to visit her daughter , but not surprisingly she has been brainwashed:

    The link has the whole story and explains sharia law:

    http://www.newenglishreview.org/Jerr..._with_Shariah/


    McClain: Heidi was allowed to visit her father every other weekend and six weeks in the summer, although in actuality, she did not spend much of that time with him. Sometimes he traveled to Saudi Arabia for months at a time, so Heidi barely knew him. On weekends, he would keep her for a few hours and then drop her off back at home. I found out that on one of his trips home, he had married his cousin and brought her back to the US. I never saw the woman, but Heidi told me about her. I don’t even know if she was of legal age here in the US. Al-Omary had once announced that since Mohammed had married a nine-year-old, he planned to emulate him. He told the court that she was his cousin and was staying with him to receive medical treatment. That was bogus! According to Shariah law, a man cannot live or travel with any female relative who could be a potential mate—that includes cousins. Al-Omary had no trouble lying under oath, and indeed, this is another aspect of Shariah law—lying to non-Muslims is not only permitted, but it’s a duty. The American courts just don’t get it. Few of our judges have been trained in Shariah law and they really don’t know of its pitfalls and dangers to our society. Our judges believe in freedom of religion because it is a tenet of the Constitution; what they don’t know is that Islam is not just a religion—it is an all-encompassing social, secular, religious, political, and economic system—one whose sole purpose is to deny the religious freedom of everyone else.



    Gordon: How many times did you visit her and when was the last time?

    McClain: I have visited her three times. The last time she was 15 years old, and she indicated to me that she wanted to die for her religion. I lost hope of ever seeing her be a normal person again. She was brainwashed into thinking that suicide bombing was an acceptable way to practice her religion. She no longer wanted to come home. Another thing she said that made me fear for her life was when she described the Oasis bombing and massacre that happened near her school, which was under lockdown. No child, and especially a girl, is safe in that country.
