A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

Islam, the religion of peace: From Nigeria, whose justice system once brought you the classic hit "Rape victim sentenced to stoning death" comes another one.


Nigerian Muslim prosecutors are seeking the death penalty for two men accused of converting from Islam to Christianity.

Lawali Yakubu and Ali Jafaru have been given three days to re-convert by an Islamic court judge in Mada.

They are accused of joining the Great Commission Movement, an international evangelical church with a strong following in Nigeria.

Sharia court judge Auwal Jabaka said the Koran calls for the execution of Muslims who accept another religion.

But he said it is unclear whether the state's two-year-old Shariah penal code also permits such a punishment.

Jabaka adjourned the court for three days to allow the accused to "change their minds" and convert back to Islam.

In the meantime, he called on the Zamfara government to clarify its position on the matter.

"If the law empowers me to (execute the two for converting from Islam to Christianity), I will have no hesitation in doing that," the judge said.


It'd be nice if CAIR and the American Muslim Council would decry these sorts of things. Ever more evidence that Islam is only the religion of peace if it depends on what "peace" means.
