Islam cannot stand up to even a modicum of criticism, because it is a lie built upon the wet sand of violence, rape, murder, oppression, and avarice.

Saudi Arabia has religion police, for crying out loud. Hopefully he’ll just do a little jail time, like most of the women there who are guilty of being raped.

Remind me again how Malaysia has a more tolerant, less virulent form of Islam.

“”Malaysia has a long-standing arrangement by which individuals wanted by one country are extradited when detained by the other, and (Kashgari) will be repatriated under this arrangement,” it said in a statement.”

I somehow can’t picture them sending a muzzie to a Christian nation.

Here's what he said about Mo:
"I have loved things about you and I have hated things about you and there is a lot I don't understand about you.

"I will not pray for you."

His punishment might depend on how wealthy and how influential his family is in Saudi Arabia. Then again his own family might kill him just to show they are honorable Muslims. Honorable Muslims is an oxymoron but never tell that to a Muslim.

Google it (before the Saudis pay to have it all scoured away) and it comes back he said.....

““On your birthday, I will say that I have loved the rebel in you, that you’ve always been a source of inspiration to me, and that I do not like the halos of divinity around you. I shall not pray for you,” were among the tweets sent by Kashgari during the Muslim prophet’s birthday last week.

“On your birthday, I find you wherever I turn. I will say that I have loved aspects of you, hated others, and could not understand many more,” he wrote in a followup tweet.

“On your birthday, I shall not bow to you. I shall not kiss your hand. Rather, I shall shake it as equals do, and smile at you as you smile at me. I shall speak to you as a friend, no more,” he concluded.” http://mashable.com/2012/02/10/saudi-journalist-arrested-tweets-prophet-muhammad/

Gasp! No wonder the Saud’s are outraged!

Will they come for me too if I said I thought the big Mo was a narscasitic child molesting rug merchant who spoke to demons and is now rotting in Hell? Not that I would. Just asking about the rules.

The Saud Journalist should have picked on the Methodists or Buddists......you can say anything to those guys.

Malaysia is 40% NON MOSLEM.

This sort of thing is going to make it much harder for anyone there to get a visa to visit the United States.

I don’t quite get your reasoning there.

Remember we have a Muslim President, he isn’t going to care about Malaysia sending this guy back to the Saudi’s

Homeland Security has kept its eye on Malaysia quite closely. Obama doesn’t want one of their crazies slipping in here and offing him.
