There Is No Freedom of Religion Under Sharia Law: Family Sentenced to Jail for Converting to Christianity

Muslims and Western liberals who claim that sharia and religious freedom are compatible either don't understand sharia or don't understand religious freedom:

The 15-year prison sentence given to a woman and her seven children by an Egyptian court for converting to Christianity is a sign of things to come, according to alarmed human rights advocates who say the nation's Islamist government is bad news for Christians in the North African country.

A criminal court in the central Egyptian city of Beni Suef meted out the shocking sentence last week, according to the Arabic-language Egyptian paper Al-Masry Al-Youm.... When the conversion came to light under the new regime, Nadia, her children and even the clerks who processed the identity cards were all sentenced to prison.

It could have been worse. Had the court followed the traditional penalties prescribed by sharia for the crime of apostasy, the penalty would have been death.

Sharia: I do not think it means what you think it means.

1 It means on your belly total subservience to Mohammed, Allah and the Ummah with no if's, and or buts.

2 And just in case you wonder sometimes what they preach at the little mosk on the road out of your town, or the converted bowling alley, open your eyes and behold the end result of total mohamadan power. This is what the regime wants for America.

3 Moshe, I thought you were going to say Obama, not Mohammed.
