“You mean I shouldn’t have eaten that Christian after Karzai threw him into the arena? Sarah and Glenn didn’t mind… hey, he was just an Afghan wog; he wasn’t a real person… he wasn’t an American Baptist from Texas, after all… give a poor little lion a break”.
On 31 May, Said Musa, a 45-year-old Christian, was arrested in Afghanistan for professing Christianity; since then, he was subjected to constant harassment, and he was forced to renounce his faith publicly. In June, the government attempted to coerce Musa to recant his faith before the television cameras, but they didn’t release him from imprisonment, and he continued to confess Christianity, according to the website Christian Post.
In a letter addressed to Christian churches throughout the world and directly to President Barack Obama, as well as to NATO, Musa wrote that he’s constantly subjected to verbal abuse in prison, physical and even sexual violence, but despite it all, he’s willing to suffer for Christ and thus strengthen the faith of other Christians. “I’m living in very, very bad conditions in prison … I’m alone, like a sheep among 400 terrible wolves”, Musa wrote. “For the sake of the Lord Jesus Christ, please pray for me and save me … Otherwise they will kill me, because I know that they are very, very cruel, and have cold hearts”, he wrote in his letter to the world community. Musa described the injustice that prevails in prison, noting that the prosecutor read out false accusations in court, and demanded a bribe from him.
The Afghan authorities arrested Said Musa soon after a local television station broadcast the baptism of Christian converts. The next hearing in Said Musa’s case is expected to take place next Sunday. In Afghanistan, whose legal system is based on a strict interpretation of the Sharia, apostasy is punishable by death. In June, Deputy Abdul Sattar Havasu, the Speaker of the Lower House of Parliament, issued an appeal calling for the execution of all Christian converts.

The Islamic Republic of Afghanistan isn’t a free country… it’s an Islamofascist dictatorship that’s corrupt to the bone and run on identical principles to the Islamic Republic of Iran. Yet, the USA props it up with oodles of money and the blood of the poor sods deployed there. It’s nothing but a sordid little kleptocracy and a bloodthirsty theocracy… and the Republican Party defends this pathetic client state tooth-and-nail. The neocons and teabaggers support the persecution of Christians through their sponsorship of the Karzai junta. After all, didn’t Joe Miller’s goons handcuff a reporter and didn’t Glenn Beck’s toughs threaten a Russia Today crew? Why, that’s no different from the persecution of Said Musa, is it?
Britain couldn’t conquer Afghanistan… Russia couldn’t conquer Afghanistan… guess what? The USA won’t be able to do it either. This pointless colonial war has dragged on for nine years… why? The USA is paying for its support of the Taliban and Osama bin Laden in the 80s and early 90s to the uttermost farthing… this is our payback for backing the Islamic militants against the DRA. I’ll say this… the DRA wouldn’t have blown up American embassies or flown airplanes into the World Trade Center. It speaks volumes about the intelligence level of Republicans and Democratic Wilsonian interventionists, doesn’t it? Oh… I’m not a “commie zombie” for pointing that up…
