On the parliament floor. And surprise of surprises, there was no rush from the other parliamentarians to explain to him how he was misunderstanding Islam. But the broadcast of his remarks did indeed provoke an outcry — but not from peaceful Muslims outraged by his hijacking of their peaceful faith. Rather, his words brought together a Muslim mob calling for blood.

But wait! I thought all the learned analysts had assured us that there is no death penalty for apostasy in Islam! Isn’t that right, Dr. Bassiouni? Mr. Kruse? Ms. Heagney?

“Afghan Parliamentarian Calls for Execution of Christians,” from International Christian Concern, June 2:

Washington, D.C. (June 2, 2010) – International Christian Concern (ICC) has learned that an Afghan parliamentary secretary called for the public execution of Christian converts on the parliament floor.

On Tuesday, the Associated Free Press reported that Abdul Sattar Khawasi, deputy secretary of the Afghan lower house in parliament, called for the execution of Christian converts from Islam. Speaking in regards to a video broadcasted [sic] by Afghan television network Noorin TV showing footage of Christian men being baptized and praying in Farsi, Khawasi said, “Those Afghans that appeared in this video film should be executed in public, the house should order the attorney general and the NDS (intelligence agency) to arrest these Afghans and execute them.”

The broadcast triggered a protest by hundreds of Kabul University students on Monday, who shouted death threats and demanded the expulsion of Christian foreigners accused of proselytizing.As a result, the operations of Norwegian Church Aid (NCA) and U.S.-based Church World Service (CWS) have been suspended over allegations of proselytizing. The Afghan government is currently undertaking an intensive investigation into the matter. According to Afghan law, proselytizing is illegal and conversion from Islam is punishable by death. …

  1. I am a Christian and I thank my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who opened my eyes and brought me from Darkness of Islam to His Light.

    I grew up in Afghanistan. Went to Islamic and government school and prayed many many times in the mosque and at home and read and recite Quran in Arabic and also with its Farsi/Dari translation. And I know what is Islam about.

    Islam nothing but a region of fear. It spread over many countries by war and killing people. There is nothing peaceful about or in Islam. If you hear someone say oh but the people who are doing bombing or killing are not Muslim, don’t believe them. Because those are the real follower of Islam.

    My parents, brother and sister are still Muslim. And if they know I am a Christian, there is a very high chance that one of them would volunteer to slaughter me or chop my head off, in order to serve Allah.

    So those of you who think Islam is a good ideology and just a few terrorist are doing the bombing, you are wrong. The terrorists are the real Muslims.

    Lord I ask you to shine your sun of justice over the people of Afghanistan. And let them know that you have shad your Son’s blood to save them from the bondage of sin. So that they know you and come to praise you. I ask this in the holy name of Jesus.

    Thanks for stopping by the site. It is good news to hear that you have found the light of Jesus and broke away from the false religion of Islam. I will pray for your family that they too find Jesus in their heart.

    I will also pray for your safety and strength, especially that we are in the last days and so close to Jesus’s return.

    Always Remember Paul’s Words in Philippians 1:20, 22

    I eagerly expect and hope that I will in no way be ashamed, but will have sufficient courage so that now as always Christ will be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death. For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. If I am to go on living in the body, this will mean fruitful labor for me.

    Praying for you
    Your Brother in Christ
