To Kill an Apostate
by Nonie Darwish
Some Muslim leaders in America deny that there are any threats to the lives and safety of Muslims who decide to leave Islam. It is as though they have no role to play in changing the status quo of the tyranny of Islam. Muslim groups who call themselves "moderate" are strangely silent about the persecution, torture, killing, and imprisonment of apostates, women, and non-Muslims all over the Muslim world. All they seem to care about is pacifying the American public and convincing them that Islam is a "religion of peace," while hiding from view the fact that 1.2 billion Muslims are living under the tyranny of Sharia Islamic law, and how that tyranny is creeping into the West.
Whenever asked about what is happening in the Muslim world and its tragic impact on the West, critics are accused of being "Islamophobes" who need sensitivity training. What defenders of Islam say is: "We believe that Islam is a religion of peace and thus you too must believe the same, and never mind what your gut tells you or what is actually happening to your country from the Islamic invasion." They want us to disregard those who issue fatwas of death against Western politicians such as Geert Wilders, cartoonists, film makers, apostates, and practically any one who dares ask the difficult questions Islam has refused to answer since its inception.
