That the clerics in Afghanistan want Rahman dead for converting to Christianity shows the intolerance of Islam itself. One thing that is striking about Islam is that it is the religious educated that are the most intolerant. The average person on the street who knows little the Koran tend to be more moderate in their views.
Senior Muslim clerics demanded Thursday that an Afghan man on trial for converting from Islam to Christianity be executed, warning that if the government caves in to Western pressure and frees him, they will incite people to "pull him into pieces."
These are the religious moderates!
