People around the world are breathing a sigh of relief with the news that the possible execution of confessed Afghani Christian Abdul Rahman has been solved and he will now be free to return to his life. Most people also believe this is an isolated incident.
Mr. Rahman is like a snowflake in a blast furnacehe has no chance of survival in Afghanistan. If Mr. Rahman is not escorted out of Afghanistan by heavily armed American Marine bodyguards, he probably will not live 24 hours after being released from jail for his “horrible” crime. If this courageous gentleman is not given safe-haven away from Muslims, his life is over. Islam will not allow him to live as a Christian. Muslims that were his friends for years will tear him apart in their rage, fomented by Islamic leaders who have ordered his assassination. Allah must have his ration of blood.
“Rejecting Islam is insulting God. We will not allow God to be humiliated. This man must die,” said cleric Abdul Raoulf. “The government is playing games. The people will not be fooled.” Raoulf went on to tell the Associated Press reporter, “We will call on the people to pull him into pieces so there’s nothing left.”
Sharia law is very clear on the matter. Allah stated emphatically through Mohammed: “Whoever changes his religion, kill him.”
Frantically, the Afghani government tried to find a way to salvage Islam’s reputation by declaring this man “insane” and thus couldn’t be charged with any crime under Islamic law. Why would Mr. Rahman be considered insane? He dared to abandon Islam and turned to Christianity. In the mind of Muslims, this would be proof that he is insane. No sane person would commit such a horrible crime. The “insane” person is given three days to reconsider and remain Muslim. If he refuses, he is killed.
Of course, this insanity defense was not successful but yet another bloodthirsty aspect of Islam has been exposed to the world. Will the West realize that Islam has been hanging people since the days of Mohammed for the crime of escaping Islam? This is not new. The Quran demands it.
Then the Afghan government remembered that it had freedom of religion in its new constitutionsort of. Anything written in the Afghani constitution means nothing because Islamic law is always supreme. There are no exceptions.
Listening to many of the talking heads on television, one would believe that this behavior within Islam is new or only found in backwards Islamic countries. This simply isn’t true. Far left websites are blaming this barbaric behavior on Bush. The leftists seem to think that somehow, American “aggression” against Muslims has suddenly turned them into bloodthirsty and intolerant people. If not for the evil West, Islam would be peaceful and loving to all.
After all the free world has learned about the inner-workings of Islam, it still doesn’t get it. What the world is witnessing in Afghanistan IS Islam. Islam is the only known “religion” that orders a death sentence for anyone who dares to break the chains of domination and believe in any God other than Allah.
The God of Islam, Allah, is not the God of the rest of the world. One can use the terms Islam and Allah interchangeably. America, indeed the free world, must understand this about Islam if there is to be any chance of defeating this enemy.
Muslim scholars state that to leave Islam is an insult to Allah. If the God of the Jews and the God of the Christians is the same as the God as the Muslims, how then, could God be insulted as long as one continued to believe and worship the one true God? Leaving Islam is not an insult to God; it is an insult to Islam. It is an insult to their God, Allah, who demands that all living beings believe only in Islam or is it Allah? It is very easy to confuse the two.
If there is not submission to Islam, there will death at the hands of Islam. This is the way Islam has been since Mohammed walked the earth and it remains that way today. For many Muslims, it is not devotion to Islam or Allah that keeps them going to mosque, it is fear.
The clerics and imams have been carefully schooled to maintain this fear and control over the followers. They know how to speak to crowds of men that are easily moved to near insanity and in this state of mind a raging mob will carry out any order that is given to them.
If this poor man, Abdul Rahman, is torn to pieces by the raging followers of the loving and peaceful “Allah” of Islam and dies for his belief in Christ as the Son of God, it would be almost romantic to call him a modern-day martyr. But Mr. Rahman is only one of many these days who are dying because they don’t believe in Allah. These people believe in a kind and loving God, not the bloodthirsty god of Islam. They die in Saudi Arabia and Indonesia and Sudan. Christians and Jews are martyred nearly on a daily basis somewhere in the world.
Betrayed by his Judas wife, Mr. Rahman is a Christian in a sea of hateful and angry Muslims. No one knows better than he the fate that awaits him. His courage is similar to another man who abandoned the faith of his birth and believed in a new beginning for mankind. There are many Muslims like Mr. Rahman in this world. There will be more as the hate and intolerance that is Islam becomes unbearable. There will come a day when the fear will not be enough to hold them. Mr. Rahman is just the most visible for now. This brave soul will leave the jail with his head held high. Mr. Rahman states he has no fear. He stated: “The punishment by hanging? I will accept it gladly, but I am not an infidel. I am not a traitor. I am a follower of Jesus.” One man may die for his religion and others will kill him because their religion demands it. In today’s world, it is not hard to identify which religion is which.
