More than a year ago, Sofia was abducted from her home in Lighthouse Point, Florida, by her Syrian National uncle, who is practicing medicine in the Chicago area.
Last March, a Florida judge issued an order to pick Sofia up from the uncle's house in Chicago and return her to her home to Florida.
Due to a jurisdiction question in court - since Sofia had never lived more than 6 months in one state at the time of her abduction - the judge later gave temporary custody to her mom until the court could determine final jurisdiction between Florida, New Jersey, and Illinois.

In July 2010, based on this uncle's instructions, Sofia was abducted by her mom to Syria where she has been missing her life-saving medical treatment.
Sofia's Syrian National uncle is still practicing medicine in the Chicago area.
As I explained repeatedly in multiple blog posts since her abduction more than six months ago, she needs urgent daily therapy, which was initially scheduled until the age of three.

I strongly believe that the MD uncle's "physician license" in the United States should be revoked immediately due to his abduction of Sofia from her home in March, 2010, as he has endangered Sofia's life by keeping her away from her much-needed medical care in Syria.
The Syrian doctor should also be deported from the United States for his actions against humanity, as he doesn't care about the health of his two-year-old niece Sofia.
I will discuss the details of this situation on national morning TV shows, which will air in the United States.

Sofia needs intense urgent daily therapy, up to 4-5 hours per day, which was scheduled to start seven months ago in New Jersey, United States.
She has not received any medical attention for her condition since her abduction to Syria.
Diane Macedo of Fox News worked on Sofia's story for more than a month, studying documents, interviewing more than a dozen people, and fact-checking before publishing her news story on Monday and airing our interview.
Here is the link to the Fox News on-camera interview.
On Monday, she also published a detailed article on Sofia that was picked up by a dozen or so media outlets around the world during the week.
When Sofia returns safely home, she will pay her first visit to Diane at the Fox News headquarters in New York City.
As of today, and since July 2010, my abducted daughter Sofia Kircaali, a US citizen, remains in Syria and in harm's way.
On Friday, I watched videos on the Internet showing violence inside a mosque one block away from where Sofia currently lives with her mother and grandmother.
