My article on quotes from the Koran ranks number one when the keywords "quotes on Islam," "quotes about Islam" or "quotes from the Koran" are googled. This article contains numerous Koranic scriptures calling for the death of infidels. This meme or mental conditioning is not going away anytime soon, as has been abundantly evidenced over the past several decades.
How soon we have forgotten why our airports had metal detectors installed in the first place! Does anyone remember the constant threat of hijackings perpetrated by Muslims fanatics beginning in the '70s? The assassination of Anwar Sadat (1981)? How about the Achille Lauro in 1985? Or the slaughter of tourists at Luxor in 1997? We're not talking about a new phenomenon even in the modern era - the destruction of Bengladesh is proof enough of that fact. The religion did not begin peacefully, nor has it been perpetuated peacefully.
The question is, how do we stop this destructive meme?
Afghan Convert Released, Goes Into Hiding
By AMIR SHAH
KABUL, Afghanistan - An Afghan man who had faced the death penalty for abandoning Islam for Christianity was freed from prison and went into hiding Tuesday in Kabul after Muslim clerics threatened his life. Italy said it may grant him asylum.
Abdul Rahman, 41, was released from the high-security Policharki prison on the outskirts of the capital late Monday after a court dropped charges of apostasy against him for lack of evidence and suspected mental illness. President Hamid Karzai had been under heavy international pressure to drop the case.
Muslim clerics condemned Rahman's release, saying it was a "betrayal of Islam." They threatened to incite violent protests.
