Wow, Islam has some work to do... (news flash)

"KABUL, Afghanistan - An Afghan man who had faced the death penalty for converting from Islam to Christianity has been released from prison after the case was dropped, the justice minister said Tuesday. ...

Hours earlier, hundreds of clerics, students and others chanting "Death to Christians!" marched through the northern Afghan Mazar-i-Sharif to protest the court's decision Sunday to dismiss the case.

"Abdul Rahman must be killed. Islam demands it," said senior Cleric Faiez Mohammed, from the nearby northern city of Kunduz. "The Christian foreigners occupying Afghanistan are attacking our religion."

Several Muslim clerics have threatened to incite Afghans to kill Rahman if he is freed, saying that he is clearly guilty of apostasy and deserves to die.

Rahman, 41, was arrested last month after police discovered him with a Bible. He was put on trial last week for converting 16 years ago while he was a medical aid worker for an international Christian group helping Afghan refugees in Pakistan. He had faced the death penalty under Afghanistan's Islamic laws."

At some point, can we stop saying that a belief system isn't a neutral variance, like brown and blue eyes? At what point is violence and intolerance linked? There's a slew of crazy people among every group... and Islam is no exception. But when are self-questioning liberals supposed to look at something and say, "wow, that belief system is in large part whack. Unacceptable beliefs and behaviors are fundamental to such a large proportion fo this group that I can no longer call it a coincidence, be there nice members of the group or not."

Cartoon in europe = riots and killings.
Antisemitic cartoons = ok
MURDER of a prisoner or conscience = ok
Murder for converting to islam in the west = can you even imagine the outrage (justifiable this time).

Sad fact is that; when mohammed first recieved the first revalations, he went to his wifes cousin, a christian to understand what is going on.

The christians of etheopia gave muslims assylum when the Quraish were going after the muslims.


The afgans need to do some reasearch.

Islam illustrates exactly why I don't like little kids. Diplomats to the middle east must make awesome nannies.
