The Abdul Rahman Watch Continues

Karzai at Pope John Paul II's funeral.

The Karzai government is getting an earful from the free world.

But he is hearing from the other side too.

The Holy Men weigh in:

Afghan Muslim leaders at Friday prayers called for the execution of a Christian convert and demanded that the government resist international pressure.
And the voice of a moderate:

One, Abdul Raoulf - regarded as a moderate after being jailed for criticising the hardline Taliban regime when it was in power - said of Abdul Rahman: 'He is not mad. The government are playing games. The people will not be fooled. This is humiliating for Islam. Cut off his head.

Dhimmi Watch and the Jawa Report alert us to the fact that Mr. Rahman is not the only apostate in peril.

Baron Bodissey gives a very astute response to a commenter on his blog at the Gates of Vienna.

Daily Kos is all over the issue.
UPDATE: Kos has seen the light. There is a lengthy story about it. Of course the issue is important. It is an easy way to attack the President. Rat.
