Afghan Man Faces Death for Allegedly Converting to Christianity

Via Fox News:

KABUL, Afghanistan — An Afghan man who allegedly converted from Islam to Christianity is being prosecuted in a Kabul court and could be sentenced to death, a judge said Sunday.
The defendant, Abdul Rahman, was arrested last month after his family went to the police and accused him of becoming a Christian, Judge Ansarullah Mawlavezada told the Associated Press in an interview. Such a conversion would violate the country's Islamic laws.
Rahman, who is believed to be 41, was charged with rejecting Islam when his trial started last week, the judge said.
During the hearing, the defendant allegedly confessed that he converted from Islam to Christianity 16 years ago when he was 25 and working as a medical aid worker for Afghan refugees in neighboring Pakistan, Mawlavezada said.

Okay, two points here.

One: Where is Bush? I like Bush, and Afghanistan so far has been a shining example of his philosophy. He'll lose credibility fast if he ignores this one, though. This can't happen - Afghanistan is supposed to be Islamic, yet free.

Second: This bunch never had any credibility anyway, but where is Amnesty International? The ACLU? The mainstream press? CAIR? Femenists?
They must be preoccupied defending with Islamic terrorists at Gitmo.
