Gartenstein-Ross Gets It
Daveed Gartenstein-Ross gets it when it comes to Abdul Rahman (last post) -
This case makes clear that the threat to converts out of Islam does not just come from the state, but from private citizens as well. And it makes clear that the belief that apostates deserve death is not an aberration, but is more widespread that many would like to acknowledge. The resolution of this case may well be a barometer of Afghanistan’s future, and the future of democracy in the Middle East.
