Jews for Jesus Update: from “Pressure Grows to Free Afghan Convert, from AP, with thanks to the Constantinopolitan Irredentist:
Another cleric, Ayatullah Asife Muhseni, told a gathering of preachers and intellectuals at a Kabul hotel that the Afghan president had no right to overturn the punishment of an apostate.
He also demanded that clerics be able to question Rahman in jail to discover why he had converted to Christianity. He suggested it could have been the result of a conspiracy by Western nations or Jews.
Note that he also says that Karzai has no right to intervene in the case. And of course, from the standpoint of the Afghan Constitution, he doesn’t: how can the President overturn Islamic Sharia? The Constitution never should have been written that way in the first place, and now that it has, it must be definitively repudiated — or the Americans should leave Afghanistan and send it not a penny more.
