Violating Allah's Boundaries

Reuters via Dhimmi Watch:

An Egyptian living in Saudi Arabia has been sentenced to death for desecrating the Koran and renouncing Islam, Saudi newspapers and a rights activist said on Wednesday.

Okaz and al-Hayat newspapers said worshippers at a mosque in the desert town of Arar in north Saudi Arabia lodged a complaint with police saying the man, a pharmacist, had left copies of the Muslim holy book in the mosque washrooms.

They said a court found the man guilty on Tuesday of no longer being a Muslim because of his acts and 'violating the boundaries set by God'. They said the man, whom they identified only as an Arab national, pleaded guilty.

Saudi Arabia executes murderers, rapists and drug traffickers to death by public beheading, according to an austere version of Sunni Islam. Anyone found guilty of apostasy can also face death.

Somehow I don't think Islamic organizations in the West will condemn this gross violation and abuse of "peaceful Islamic rules".

You put your finger on it. What gets to me most is not that this exists in the Muslim world, but that hardly anyone within the Muslim world protests it.

The reason for their silence is quite simple: Saudi Arabia is implementing Islamic law.
