Afghanistan: Red Cross worker to be hanged for converting to Christianity

"Hello, Hamid? It's Hillary...Yes, yes, peace be upon those who are rightly guided indeed...Fine, thanks, and you?...A double eagle on a par-5 hole! Wow, that's terrific...Yes...Look, Hamid, about this Said Musa character, or Musa Sayed, or whatever. You know who I mean? Yes, that's right, the accursed murtadd dog. Look, Hamid, I know how you feel, and you know how much I respect Islam, but you guys are making it harder for me to keep on saying how peaceful and tolerant Islam is. Can you cut me some slack here, please?...

"Oh, no, I'm certainly not saying you should stop the trial...Release him? Oh, no, I'm not saying that...You guys are a sovereign government...A sovereign country...But...you're really making us come out of this building a new Afghanistan thing with egg on our face, Hamid...After all, we've been fighting for freedom for all Afghans, right? And that includes freedom of religion and freedom of conscience, right? I mean, Hamid, doesn't your own Constitution say -- How does it go? 'Followers of other religions are free to exercise their faith and perform their religious rites within the limits of the provisions of law'? And what are those limits, Hamid? 'In Afghanistan, no law can be contrary to the beliefs and provisions of the sacred religion of Islam.'...Oh, I see...I see...And Islam actually forbids conversion to another religion?...And someone who leaves Islam must be killed? Muhammad commanded it? Wow, Hamid, I had no idea....I mean, John Esposito told me -- what? Esposito's a what?

"But Hamid, can't you release this Musa Sayed or Said Musa character just as a favor to us?...What's that? People actually believe in laws like this? You'll have open revolt?...Well, yes, we did sign off on your Constitution, it's true. But we didn't realize that anybody actually took seriously -- well, of course Hamid. I see the tough position you're in...No, I don't think you should be made out to be an American stooge...No, of course we don't want to see your government fall...No, of course I don't want you to join the Taliban...No no no, of course I respect Islam...No, I'm not an Islamophobe...Look, calm down. It's all right, Hamid...Calm down...Now I know when you say that word, you mean an interior spiritual struggle...Just calm down, please...It's all right...We won't cut off any aid...No, not even if Said Musa or Musa Sayed or whatever is executed...Of course we know we've come this far with you, we can't abandon you now...Yes, certainly, Hamid...We'll go to Bullfeather's next time you're in Washington...All right, Hamid...You have a lovely evening too...Thank you...Good night."

The more things change, the more they -- you know it's the same old hamster wheel: this exchange is an updating and revision of this 2006 Jihad Watch post about another Afghan convert to Christianity who was facing the death penalty. Condoleezza Rice actually did call Karzai over that case; neither Hillary Clinton nor anyone else in the Obama Administration has taken any notice of this one.

More on this story. "One-legged Afghan Red Cross worker set to be hanged after converting to Christianity," from the Daily Mail, February 7 (thanks to all who sent this in):

An Afghan physiotherapist will be executed within three days for converting to Christianity.

Said Musa, 45, has been held for eight months in a Kabul prison were he claims he has been tortured and sexually abused by inmates and guards.

Mr Musa, who lost his left leg in a landmine explosion in the 1990s, has worked for the Red Cross for 15 years and helps to treat fellow amputees....

He claims he was visited by a judge who told him he would be hanged within days unless he converted back to Islam.

But he remains defiant and said he would be willing to die for his faith....

Defence lawyers have refused to represent him, while others have dropped the case after receiving death threats....



TOPICS: Foreign Affairs; War on Terror
KEYWORDS: 0bamasafault; afghanistan; christianity; jihad; obamasfault; redcross
Many verses from the Word spring to mind after reading this.

Acts 7:54-60, for example.

He claims he was visited by a judge who told him he would be hanged within days unless he converted back to Islam.

But he remains defiant and said he would be willing to die for his faith....

Defence lawyers have refused to represent him, while others have dropped the case after receiving death threats....

Maybe the LORD will stand for Said Musa as He did for Stephen.

Yes, even so, come Lord Jesus.

If you can't appreciate the pure beauty of the violin after hearing this, something's wrong with your ears.

Its the only religion I can think of, that the deeper you go, the worse you are.

The good muslims are all bad muslims. And vice versa.

I encourage fellow FReepers to take a moment and ask Obama to intercede with Hamid Karzai.

It'd be a good opportunity for the president to stand for individual freedom & liberty abroad.

He'd even have a little leverage he could employ, seeing as though any authority in the wretched place is backed up courtesy of the US military.

We shall see.

"We" aren't in control in DC, let alone Kabul.

It’s for THIS we’re sending our troops into a meatgrinder?

And to think we had a chance to support the Soviets when they invaded in ‘78. Too bad we didn’t know then what we know now.

Islam is not a religion. It is a theocratic fascist creed of involuntary servitude and an anathema to monotheoism.

When I was on my first deployment to Iraq in 04-05 and saw that the constitution the Iraqis were coming up with made Islam the state religion I wanted to scream. We should have forced them to have a secular government like we have.

I feel as if I have been used to help spread islam and I do not like it at all.

Islam is the opposite of a religion.

Actually, Christianity is the opposite of a religion.

Christianity is the complete surrender of human authority and ego to the Infinite God.

Islam is the perfect of example of what you get when man attempts to construct his own way to heaven based on actions and works.

You get a living Hell full of infinite horrors.


Today is a good day to die.
I didn't say for whom.

Perhaps the administration will protest. I know it's the will of the "people", but even apologists for the Muslim Brotherhood should recognize this as extreme. At least for now.

It’s like Mr. Phlegmatic of the UN recently said on Latma TV. Brazilians Samba. Jews eat kosher. Islamists slaughter. It’s a cultural thing, gives a sense of community. If they don’t have that, they might go out and commit crimes.
