And He Is Seen As A Moderate

Afghanistan Cleric Abdul Raoulf had this to say about Abdul Rahman, the Christian on trial for renouncing his Islamic faith.

"He is not mad. The government are playing games. The people will not be fooled," and "This is humiliating for Islam. ... Cut off his head."


And by local standards there is a good chance that Raoulf is a moderate.

That is why our gift of Democracy was not enough. We also needed to supply them with liberty and personal freedom. Without these protections, Democracy is nothing more than the tyranny of the majority.

And that is what they will have in Afghanistan, with Islamic law being allowed to overrule personal freedom.

Just another failure, in a long list of failures, of our current administration.
