[quote=iamrefreshed]Well, it looks to me like there were more than a few “fringe radical Muslims” in Afghanistan who were looking for Christian blood.
It makes it hard to swallow what I read here posted by other Muslims
That picture or any news that you read in the West, does not really tell the whole story, just like how people are not aware how many innocent soldiers of American and coalition forces have died in vain in Afghanistan and in Iraq during an ongoing unjust war for OIL.
Obviously media of corporate America or West’s biasness will not tell it’s viewers the whole story especially when it comes to Muslims or Islam.
Was Western media this much interested when Veteran Australian missionary Graham Stewart Stains and his two sons are burned alive by Hindu extremists when they were sleeping in a car in eastern India in 1999, not too long ago??

It is told that Abdul became Christian some 16 years ago. This man did not have any problem when Taliban were ruling, and he used to oppose even Taliban and Shari’ah law. No fatwa was casted by the Taliban, to kill him. Then Abdul have been working for Christian missionary organization in Germany for years (almost a decade). What missonaries do to him is not certain.
After occupation of Afghanistan by the American and coalition forces, Abdul came to Afghanistan. Why now? Probably he had an agenda to create a mischief by misuing the “freedom” created by the occupied forced with their support.
Don’t forget that majority of people of Afghanistan do not see America’s dropping heavy bombs on their innocent people, as liberators or killers of terrorists only.
Now the incident of Abdul and sole backing by the West, is seen as an invasion in their religion as well.
So if people of Afghanistan are angry over this issue, it has less to do with Abdul’s change of religion and more to what happened to their thousands of innocent children, men and women when America’s most advanced bombs were dropped on them and they died in seconds and countless have become injured and handicapped beyond repair.
And it also has to do with what happened in Abu Ghurab Jail in Iraq, because Muslims cannot ignore what is happening in other Muslim countries and how more than hundred thousand innocent Iraqi children. men and women are laready dead.
All these facts and factors **should be kept in mind ** when talking about any demonstration or outrage of Muslims in any Muslim country.
Now, Abdul is released because it is found that he is mentally ill. It means he was an abnormal. An abnormal/mentally ill man’s change of faith means nothing. It is also possible that Christian missionary must have given him an assignment to disrupt and create a situation in Afghanistan.
There is a widespread dissent among the masses in Afghanistan against the activities of Christian missionaries. These missions exploit the poverty of Afghan people and they pay them to convert.
An **Afghanistan state prosecutor Sarinwal Zamari ** said of Abdul Rahman in an interview with the Associated Press on March 22, 2006, **“We think he could be mad. He is not a normal person. He doesn’t talk like a normal person. Doctors must examine him. If he is mentally unfit, definitely Islam has no claim to punish him. He must be forgiven. The case must be dropped.” ** Other sources said Rahman is "perennially jobless and mentally unbalanced."
