The Jawa Report has posted a hit list from an Egyptian Islamic site. “Islamists Post Hit List of ‘Apostates'”:
An Egyptian group calling itself the “al-Jama”ah Consultative Council” has sent an e-mail hit list to people deemed ‘apostates’ yesterday. The group warned that those people on the list who had left the faith would have three days (as of yesterday) to repent or they would be killed. The group also warned that the wives and children of the Muslim apostates were being followed & would be killed.
Under Islamic Law, the maximum penalty for apostasy is death.
The list includes prominent Muslims living in the West who have spoken out against violent Islamic extremism and intolerance, some still living in Muslim countries, as well as Coptic Christians who have advocated equal treatment in Egypt.
I trust law enforcement officials are aware of this. Go to the Jawa Report to see who is on the list. Some of the names will be familiar to regular Jihad Watch readers. It is interesting to note that one of the names on the list is “condemned as an ‘apostate’ because he accepts only the Quran as authentic and rejects the sunnas.” I am participating in a FrontPage Symposium right now (it should be published in a week or so) with a couple of Muslims who do just that, one of whom has upbraided me for noting that his position is a minority view with little chance of gaining currency in the Islamic world. But this just bears out what I am saying.
