Kidnappers Offer Trade for Abdul Rahman

Source: BBC News (H/T Michelle Malkin)

Photojournalist Gabriele Torsello was seized last week while travelling on a bus in southern Afghanistan.

The kidnappers will free Mr Torsello, a Muslim convert, if Abdul Rahman returns from Italy where he was granted asylum earlier this year, the aid agency says.

Mr Rahman had escaped a possible death sentence for becoming a Christian.

He had been charged with rejecting Islam and released this March after being deemed mentally unfit to stand trial on a charge of apostasy.

Background here and here.

They won't quit. They'll never quit. They think it's a great idea to behead people for what they do or don't believe. They think it's fine and dandy to kill people for drawing cartoons. They're barbarians, they're unhinged, and it is most decidedly NOT "intolerant" to say so.

Godspeed, Mr. Rahman. You have our prayers for your new life in Italy.
