|We are struck by the commitment of those in the Islamic world - who try to do what we take for granted.|
Let this man go to New Zealand!!
Sheikh Saleh bin... Fowzan, a member of the 7-man supreme committee of scholars in Saudi Arabia, said it has been established in Islam that any one who insults God or the Prophet should be killed.
To clear that up!!
In the west - with current trends - this man would have been called a 'racist' or an 'Islamphobe' - and claim that that he set out to purposely 'insult' all Muslims and that perhaps if 'he had learned more about Islam' he would 'like it better'.
And it seems the Saudis would agree!!
It shows how our cherished beliefs in freedom of religion and conscience are being undermined.
An apostate Saudi journalist who is believed to be facing execution for insulting Prophet Mohammed PBUH (Peace Be Upon Him) has repented at court and this means reduced sentence.
Notice how (Peace Be Upon Him) becomes a stiff rigid mantra.
This is obviously Muhammad's way - accept conversion, by any means - even a sword at the throat.
Sounds like compulsion to me!
According to the Arabic language daily Sharq, Hamza Kashgari declared his repentance before the judge at the court in Riyadh.
“Kashgari declared his repentance and expressed regret for offending the Prophet (PBUH)….this means he will face a light sentence,” the paper said, citing Kashgari relatives.
The 23-year-old man, who works for Albilad Arabic language daily, fled to Malaysia last month after King Abdullah ordered his arrest on charges of apostasy in an article he wrote on Twitter. A few days later, he was deported to the Kingdom and arrested on arrival.
Speculation mounted after his arrest that Kashgari could be executed following statements by a senior Saudi Muslim cleric that the writer would be sentenced to death for apostasy.
Sheikh Saleh bin Fowzan Al Fowzan, a member of the 7-man supreme committee of scholars in Saudi Arabia, said it has been established in Islam that any one who insults God or the Prophet should be killed.
“Repenting will not work…any man who insults God or our Prophet (PBUH) should be killed,” he said. “But we should first verify that this man (Kashgari) did insult Prophet Mohammed in his article on Twitter…if verified, then he must be killed……many scholars and people are now demanding his execution.”
