Radical Islam does not embrace freedom of religion. Christians are brutally tortured, kidnapped, and beheaded for no other reason than their faith and belief in Christianity.
From torturing a couple in Iran for reading the Bible, to a father in Saudi Arabia violently cutting out his young daughter’s tongue and burning her alive for converting to Christianity-the danger is clear and present.
In Iraq, a Christian community that used to have one million followers has dwindled. Across Baghdad terrified Christians remaining in Iraq celebrate Easter while under protection. Today, most of the worshipers are women and children, as many Christian men have either been kidnapped, or worse, killed.
In 2006, the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs in Baghdad, reported a story about a 36 year-old Christian woman, Julie Carlo: “Recently, life for Christians in Iraq has turned into a horror movie.”
In the West Bank, Christian villages have been set ablaze by Molotov cocktails thrown by Muslim neighbors. Predominantly Christian cities such as Bethlehem have become Muslim dominated. Christians have left due to severe and violent persecution. Christian leaders remaining in Bethlehem have dodged multiple assassination attempts.
Group asks American Muslim leaders nationwide to repudiate Sharia’s requirement to execute Muslim apostates.
The group, Former Muslims United, has developed a document they call the “Muslim Pledge for Religious Freedom and Safety from Harm for Former Muslims” or The Freedom Pledge. Muslim leaders are receiving the pledge with a request that they sign and return it.
The document cites eight different sources to establish the fact that mainstream Islam includes doctrines requiring apostates to be executed. Here’s just one example:
All four schools of Sunni Islamic law… as well as the other main schools of Shia Islamic law… unanimously agree that a former Muslim male, also known as an apostate, must be executed. While some hold that an apostate woman should also be executed.
Interesting isn’t it? A majority of the most dedicated and knowledgeable members of the ‘religion of peace and tolerance’ advocate murdering the ones, who part with Islam, and yet many would claim that I am the one scaring people and using hate speech!
To what are the Islamic leaders being asked to agree? Stated at the bottom of the pledge is:
I renounce, repudiate and oppose any physical intimidation, or worldly and corporal punishment, of apostates from Islam, in whatever way that punishment may be determined or carried out by myself or any other Muslim including the family of the apostate, community, Mosque leaders, Shariah court or judge, and Muslim government or regime.
The Daily Mail reports that Harry Potter actress, Afshan Azad, has fled for her life after her father and brother tried to kill her.
According to Atlas Shrugs:
The Muslim actress who plays ‘Padma’ in the Harry Potter films has fled her home in Manchester, England after her father and brother tried to kill her. The father and brother have since been charged with attempted murder (with the brother also being charged with physically assaulting his sister); She’s going to need some hiding because both the father and brother have now been released on bail.
