An Afghan Christian convert, who had faced the death penalty in his country for abandoning Islam, has arrived in Italy which has offered him asylum, Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi said on Wednesday.
“He is already in Italy,” Berlusconi told a news conference in Rome.
US-based Christian news source, Compass Direct, reports that more Christians have been arrested for their faith in Afghanistan in the wake of the release of Abdul Rahman. Compass, a news service that tracks persecution of Christians mostly in Islamic countries, says harassment of the Christian community has been stepped up.
Compass says two more Christian converts have been arrested in other parts of the country, but further information is being withheld in the “sensitive situation” caused by the international media furor over Rahman.
Reports of beatings and police raids on the homes of Christians are filtering out of the country through local Christian ministers…
Howie at The Jawa Report is reminded of two Reagan quotes, that are meaningful in more ways than one this week:
“If we ever forget that we’re one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under.”
“No arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world, is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women.
Allah Pundit e-mails:
“The question now is, what price will Karzai pay for letting him leave the country?”
