Between Abdul Rahman and the Cartoon riots

World: Islam is getting the publicity equal of 20 on 1 beatdown. This won't lead to positive image enforcement.

Under the interpretation of Islamic Sharia law on which Afghanistan's constitution is based, Mr Rahman faces the death penalty unless he reconverts to Islam. "The Prophet Muhammad has said several times that those who convert from Islam should be killed if they refuse to come back," says Ansarullah Mawlafizada, the trial judge. "Islam is a religion of peace, tolerance, kindness and integrity. That is why we have told him if he regrets what he did, then we will forgive him," he told the BBC News website.

BTW, anyone see any Imans, clerics and other assorted special interest groups/persons coming out in trying to protect this man from being killed? I mean in the same amount of numbers as they did for the cartoons? You mean for them this respect and tolerance mantra is a one way street?
