Islamic Republic continues to kill Christians while Larry King interviews Ahamdinejad

The Islamic Republic's religious apartheid regime continues to hang Christians.This report is from a great blog, Internation Musings:

Hossein Soodmand converted from Islam to Christianity in 1960, when he was 13 years old.
Thirty years later, in 1990, he was hanged by the Iranian authorities for that decision.Today, Rashin Soodman the daughter of Hossein Soodman, living in London, fears that her brother, Ramtin, held in a prison cell in Mashad, Iran's holiest city, will face the same 'faith'.
He was arrested on August 21. He has not been charged but he is a Christian. And Rashin fears that, just as her father was the last man to be executed for apostasy in Iran, her brother may become one of the first to be killed under Iran's new law; "Islamic Penal Code", which would codify the death penalty for any male Iranian who leaves his Islamic faith. Women would get life imprisonment. The majority in favour of the new law was overwhelming: 196 votes for, with just seven against.
Today, only in Islam apostasy is punishable (It’s virtually impossible to find a Christian state which persecutes. Most of the countries which do persecute are Muslim–with a few Communist or former Communist states thrown in). And its punishable by death in countries such as Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Iran, Sudan, Afghanistan, Mauritania and the Comoros. In Qatar apostasy is a capital offense, but no executions have been reported for it.
Here the article.
Note: Many ex-Muslims in Great Britain have faced abuse, violence, and even murder at the hands of Muslims; one estimate suggests there are 200,000 apostates in Britain. There are similar reports of violent intimidation of those electing to reject Islam in other Western countries.Other examples of persecution of apostates converting to Christianity have been given by the Barnabas Fund from Kuwait, Sudan, Iran, Yemen, Pakistan, Egypt, and Bangladesh.

This is one of the 'authentic' Islamic laws. The penalty for leaving Islam is death.

A number of 'authentic' Islamic laws are worth waging war over. This is only one of them.
