We are assured by the taqqiya specialists at Islamonline.net and other places that it is absurd to think that Islam prescribes death for apostasy in the form of conversion to Christianity. ("Taqqiya" is the revered institution of dissimulation or lying to further Islam.) Yet, once again, some Muslims are so upset that a convert to Christianity still lives, they have kidnapped an innocent person to exchange for the apostate. Why? Not to invite him to a party, you may be sure.
The convert: Abdul Rahman. To avoid imposing the death penalty for apostasy in Afghanistan, the Afghan legal system found him to be mentally incompetent. He was allow to escape under guard to Italy to avoid mobs of angry Muslims.
How can anyone respect a religion that breeds people like these kidnappers?
