ROME - An Afghan Christian convert who had faced the death penalty for abandoning Islam has left Afghanistan for Italy where he has been granted asylum, the Italian foreign ministry said Wednesday.

Abdul Rahman’s departure happened as Afghanistan’s parliament demanded that the government prevent him from leaving the country.

Italy has close ties with Afghanistan, whose former king, Mohammed Zaher Shah, was allowed to live with his family in exile in Rome for 30 years. The former royals returned to Kabul after the fall of the Taliban regime in 2001.

And let's all remember this the next time we're told that your average Muslim is a nice, tolerant, peace-loving soul. It was the average Muslims in Kabul, the "Muslims next door", who were threatening to tear this guy limb from limb if he was released. Not the "radical" Muslims who we're told give the rest of them a bad name, but the regular old man-on-the-street who were ready to kill this guy because he converted.

I love how they decided he was "mentally ill" - and that was their justification for letting him go.

So, it will still be perfectly okay for them to execute a "mentally competent" former muslim who converts to Christianity (or any other religion).
