Muhammad commanded: “Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him” (Bukhari 9.84.57). This is still the position of all the schools of Islamic jurisprudence, both Sunni and Shi’ite. Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the most renowned and prominent Muslim cleric in the world, has stated: “The Muslim jurists are unanimous that apostates must be punished, yet they differ as to determining the kind of punishment to be inflicted upon them. The majority of them, including the four main schools of jurisprudence (Hanafi, Maliki, Shafi`i, and Hanbali) as well as the other four schools of jurisprudence (the four Shiite schools of Az-Zaidiyyah, Al-Ithna-`ashriyyah, Al-Ja`fariyyah, and Az-Zaheriyyah) agree that apostates must be executed.” There is only disagreement over whether the law applies only to men, or to women also – some authorities hold that apostate women should not be killed, but only imprisoned in their houses until death.

Deconstructing Harry Reid
This could be a hunch, but I suspect that vulnerable congressional Democrats are going to regret Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid having prematurely kicked off 2014 election season by declaring his party’s campaign slogan to be ‘All Obamacare Victims Are Liars.’
After regaling his colleagues with the glories of Obamacare, Reid warned recently, “Despite all that good news, there’s plenty of horror stories being told. All of them are untrue, but they’re being told all over America. … those tales, turned out to be just that: tales, stories made up from whole cloth, lies distorted by the Republicans to grab headlines or make political advertisements.”
He Got His Job Because He Said ‘He’d Keep Me From Accomplishing Anything’
They are looking for a name.
On Friday, a federal jury took less than two hours to convict the daughter of President Barack Obama’s controversial former pastor, Jeremiah Wright, of fraud.
9/11 was tragic on another level that is rarely discussed. It created a generation of people who immediately say every video they see is fake, and then they dissect the thing and invite you to go to a time stamp on the video where they have proof positive that the entire thing is a charade.
I’m not making a claim one way or the other about this video (but the fake brigade is in full dudgeon in the youtube comments), because I really don’t care or obsess whether it is or not. What is disconcerting, however, is that most of these hoax-seekers are “inside jobbers,” and when they discover a faked youtube video it bolsters their contention that 9/11 was a hoax, as if one has anything at all to do with the other.
