Rahaf Mohammed, Linda Sarsour, and the Question of Apostasy


It's a very important case. Thanks to Rahaf Mohammed, the world has been given a good look at several aspects of Islam that deserve to be held up for inspection. First, there is the demonstration that despite Qur'an 2:256, a favorite verse for Islamic apologists that says "there is no compulsion in religion," the example of Rahaf Mohammed shows that there most certainly is "compulsion" in the religion of Islam. The threat of death for apostasy, which Rahaf Mohammed clearly fears, constitutes all the "compulsion" any Muslim needs to stay within the faith.
