Christian convert faces death in Afghanistan
19/03/2006 21:29 - (SA)
Kabul - An Afghan man is being prosecuted in a Kabul court and could be sentenced to death after being charged with converting from Islam to Christianity, a crime under this country's Islamic shariah laws, a judge said on Sunday.

The trial is believed to be the first of its kind in Afghanistan and highlights a struggle between religious conservatives and reformists about what shape Islam will take here four years after the ousting of the Islamic fundamentalist Taliban regime.

The defendant, Abdul Rahman, 41, was arrested last month after his family accused him of becoming a Christian, said Judge Ansarullah Mawlavezada.

Rahman was charged with rejecting Islam and his trial started last Thursday.
During the one-day hearing, the defendant allegedly confessed that he converted from Islam to Christianity 16 years ago while working as a medical-aid worker for an international Christian group helping Afghan refugees in the Pakistani city of Peshawar, Mawlavezada said.


'An attack on Islam'
The judge said in an interview: "We are not against any particular religion in the world.
"But, in Afghanistan, this sort of thing is against the law. It is an attack on Islam."


Mawlavezada said he would rule on the case within two months.

Afghanistan's constitution is based on shariah law, which states that any Muslim who rejects Islam should be sentenced to death, according to Ahmad Fahim Hakim, deputy chair of the state-sponsored Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission.

The prosecutor, Abdul Wasi, said he had offered to drop the charges if Rahman converted back to Islam, but he refused.

"He would have been forgiven if he changed back. But he said he was a Christian and would always remain one," said Wasi.

"We are Muslims and becoming a Christian is against our laws. He must get the death penalty."

This shows how the biggest victims of Islam are Muslim people themselves. They are denied the basic right of choosing their beliefs.

What kind of religion threatens violence and killing to maintain its numbers? The answer, of course, is that no true religion would.

The very existence of Islam is a violent threat to Humanity, and a world worth living in.

Muslim convert faces death in Israel

19/03/2006 21:29 - (SA)
Tel Aviv - An Israeli man is being prosecuted in a Tel Aviv court and could be sentenced to death after being charged with converting from Judaism to Islam, a crime under this country's Talmudic laws, a judge said on Sunday.

The trial is believed to be the first of its kind in Israel and highlights a struggle between religious conservatives and reformists about what shape Judaism will take here four years after the resurgence of the Jewish hardline Likud party.

The defendant, Schlomi Cohen, 41, was arrested last month after his family accused him of becoming a Muslim, said Judge Moshe Rabinowicz.

Cohen was charged with rejecting Judaism and his trial started last Thursday.
During the one-day hearing, the defendant allegedly confessed that he converted from Judaism to Islam 16 years ago while serving as a soldier patrolling predominantly Arab East Jerusalem, Rabinowicz said.

'An attack on Judaism'
The judge said in an interview: "We are not against any particular religion in the world.
"But, in Israel, this sort of thing is against the law. It is an attack on Judaism."

Rabinowicz said he would rule on the case within two months.

Israel's constitution is based on Talmudic law, which states that any Jew who rejects Judaism should be sentenced to death, according to Ari Goldstein, deputy chair of the state-sponsored Isreal Independent Human Rights Commission.

The prosecutor, Yuval Epstein, said he had offered to drop the charges if Cohen converted back to Judaism, but he refused.

"He would have been forgiven if he changed back. But he said he was a Muslim and would always remain one," said Epstein.

"We are Jews and becoming a Muslims is against our laws. He must get the death penalty."

I wonder how the world would react if the above were true...

Israel is a SECULAR culture; don’t worry about your friend. Only in Islamic countries people are killed when they question the religion. That started with Mohammed who killed those who “insulted” him. And when he died, Arabs were enslaved by the religion of “submission” when they rejected his message in the wars of the apostate (Horoub El Rud-da).
I know that many Muslims would like to leave Islam or to leave religion in general, but they can’t because they would be killed.
Sad

I simply don't understand how any religion in the world could be so insecure or so authoritarian that it would kill people who leave the faith?!

Really, what kind of a religion is that? Better yet, what kind of a god would sanction that type of action? I do know that it is NOT the Judeo-Christian God. It's not Buddhism, Hinduism, atheistim, hell..it ain't even Satanism!!

Only in Islam do do you get your head chopped off if you leave.

Hmm...I wonder how much death and destruction this world would know if ALL religions chopped the head off of people who leave the faith? What would the world's history look like if "infidel relgions" followed the template that Islam (the religion of peace)uses...just food for thought.

To all Fanatics/terrorist/fundementalists of the world (and anon @ 3:39):

GET OVER THE SPANISH INQUISITION AND THE CRUSADES!

Get over it!!! Quit comparing modern day terrorist to incidents that happened a millenia ago!

You sound really stupid when you talk about those events.

You don't hear anyone bitching about the Muslim Crusades that Mo and his marauders went on, do you? Or the Ottoman Crusades against the Byzantines or the Spanish Crusades.

"Crusading" was and is a fundemental part of your religion.

-Didn't Mo raid and plunder caravans coming from Damascus to Medina/Mecca?
-Didn't Mo enslave, rape and trade the people he captured?
-What did Mo do to Kinana al-Rabi?

"Torture him until you extract what he has." So he kindled a fire with flint and steel on his chest until he was nearly dead. Then the apostle delivered him to Muhammad b. Maslama and he struck off his head, in revenge for his brother Mahmud."
-"Sirat Rasulallah" by Ibn Ishaq

It just sounds really stupid and ignorant when I hear muslims crying about the Crusades...that's all. So I'm not really sure who the "lame hypocrite" is?

Interesting story,
in 2000 if this would have happened, the dude would be dead, and we'd never know! Darkness hates light.

"Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him" (Bukhari Volume 9, Book 84, Number 57).

Here is the basis for how to deal with "apostates"...there is no ambiguity here.

Truly the "Religion of Peace"
