Afghan Man Found His Brain and Might Loose His Head

Afghan Man Faces Execution After Converting to Christianity

An Afghan man who recently admitted he converted to Christianity faces the death penalty under the country's strict Islamic legal system. The trial is a critical test of Afghanistan's new constitution and democratic government.

The case is attracting widespread attention in Afghanistan, where local media are closely monitoring the landmark proceedings

Abdul Rahman, 40, was arrested last month, accused of converting to Christianity.

Under Afghanistan’s new constitution, minority religious rights are protected but Muslims are still subject to strict Islamic laws.

And so, officially, Muslim-born Rahman is charged with rejecting Islam and not for practicing Christianity.

Appearing in court earlier this week Rahman insisted he should not be considered an infidel, but admitted he is a Christian.

He says he still believes in the almighty Allah, but cannot say for sure who God really is. “I am,” he says, “a Christian and I believe in Jesus Christ.”

Rahman reportedly converted more than 16 years ago after spending time working in Germany.

Officials say his family, who remain observant Muslims, turned him over to the authorities.

On Thursday the prosecution told the court Rahman has rejected numerous offers to embrace Islam.

Prosecuting attorney Abdul Wasi told the judge that the punishment should fit the crime.

He says Rahman is a traitor to Islam and is like a cancer inside Afghanistan. Under Islamic law and under the Afghan constitution, he says, the defendant should be executed.

The court has ordered a delay in the proceedings to give Rahman time to hire an attorney.

Under Afghan law, once a verdict is given, the case can be appealed twice to higher courts.

This is the first case in which the defendant has admitted to converting and is refusing to back down, even while facing the death penalty.

If convicted, the case could ultimately force President Hamid Karzai’s direct intervention.

The president would have to sign the papers authorizing Rahman’s execution, a move that could jeopardize Mr. Karzai’s standing with human rights groups and Western governments.

So far, President Karzai has not commented on the case.

But political analysts here in Kabul say he will be under significant pressure from the country’s hard-line religious groups to make an example of Rahman.

Wild Thing's comment......
On the way to work Monday morning I heard this on the radio. When I got out of the car if someone had come up to me right then and said " Islam is the religion of peace" I would not want to be responsible for what my reaction would have been.
I was furious, not surprised at what I heard but angry. Angry because I have had it with people saying this LIE, including politicians that say it over and over again. Do they think we are stupid? Do they think we believe the propaganda of it being anything to do with peace.
The fact is that this death cult is NOT a religion, it is just that a death cult. It really does not matter that the man turned to Christianity at all. He could have decided to worship at the feet of Mickey Mouse. As long as he turned away from Islam is all these freakazoids care about. Oh maybe it is a greater insult that the man became a Christian but the truth is their anger and rules about this mean death to anyone leaving Islam.
My feeling about this may not be how others see it, but here it goes.

Islam is destructive, it is death and is spread by its devout followers with violence, beheadings, bombings you name it. I am glad the people voted in Iraq, I am proud of them and the courage they had to do this. Many for the first time, but the fact still remains they still worship a freakin sick cult that tells of how infidels should be whacked!

To think that just because they want peace, or say they do. That they say they love capitalism and the great and marvelous things our troops have done for them is great, they damn well better appreciate it! BUT they are still Islmaists and still one inch from going nuts and picking up a knife and taking my head off.

A moderate Muslim simply does not exist and I work with one so I can tell you they have an anger, a rage inside of them that at any second is ready to explode. For some silly reason he likes me even though I stand up top him, maybe he likes the spunk I have who knows. But I have seen him angry for us going into Iraq, mad that we did not let Saddam stay in power. Furious with MR.Bush as he calls him and we even have a bet... (that I will win.). He bet me that Bush will resign and I said no way. So we bet $20.00 on it.

Islam and politics are joined together. Allah ( moon god) is not primarily interested in individuals. Love is a completely foreign concept in Islam. Allah ( moon god) is destined to rule the world. That is the basis of Islam. Everything else is related to this goal. And the Doctor at work has said this very thing, " Islam will one day be in the majority in America above all else." Grrrrrrrrrrr! Take a number you old fart is how I feel about that.

I even told him to get in line that right now it says..." Press 1 for English and 2 for Spanish." Not press 2 for Muslimeze! So they are not even close and I pray they never will be, it is bad enough to have the 2 for Spanish. I told him this and he just smilied and said" you will see, you will see I am right."

90%-95% of all the conflicts on this planet today involve Muslims fighting non-Muslims or each other.

Islam remains a cult of the Dark Ages. It is the most violent and intolerant faith that has ever been presented to mankind! Make no mistake about it. Islam is on the move and is prepared to extinguish any and all civilizations that get in its way. Muslims are fundamentally non-assimilatible.Unless the civilized world resists and fights back, Muslims will vanquish the planet within a few decades. Only THEN will the "civilized world" know what devilish barbarism and uncompromising rigidity Israel has for so long been up against!!!

* Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler for a GREAT read see what Misha has to say about this. You will laugh as well at how he states his rant on this. It is excellent.

Inform the good doctor that as of now, the US moslem population stands at 1.4 percent. There are more druids and other fringe cults in the US than moslems. My best guess is that as their kids experience US culture they realize that islam is a sham. Shoot, even santaria sounds better than islam.

Hi raz0r thanks for commenting on this. I hope you are right about their kids choosing against Islam culture and not for it.

You got it right with the words death cult.

This is a good test of Democracy in Afghanistan, it's up to them to prove their tolerance, since their constitution is based on Sharia Law I'm betting Rahman is a dead man. I don't believe they'll let their people reject the cult of death out of fear of mass conversion and loss of totalitarian control.

Hi Jack you hit the nail, that is my bet too.

Thank you for your input on this.
