    EIGHT foreign aid workers on trial in Afghanistan for allegedly preaching Christianity could be hanged if found guilty, Taliban Chief Justice Mawlawi Noor Mohammad Saqib said yesterday.

    He told the Afghan Islamic Press that the punishment would fit the alleged crime and the death penalty was an option if the eight foreigners were found guilty.
    Diana Thomas and Peter Bunch from Western Australia are on trial in Kabul with two Americans and four Germans.

    "We will punish them according to the laws they have broken. If they have broken the law and should be hanged then we will punish them like that," Mr Saqib said.

    Considering the last few days, they should let the Christians go and put Osama bin Laden on trial before our military drops a couple bombs in their punchbowl! :mad:

    Let's remember the Christian persecution in this country in the upcoming days. I'm sure that Afghanistan will be in the news for days/weeks to come.

    Let us also, write to newspaper editors so that the issue of Christian persecution will be mentioned in the media during the coming days.

    Islam is no more a religion of hate than Christianity is the religion of Koresh, the Inquisition, etc.

    According to the news here, the western aid workers have pleaded "not guilty" to witnessing to the Afgans. Does anybody know any more on this? As members of an organisation that claims to be Christian, it would seem to be a terrible thing for any Christian to claim in court that they have not tried to share their faith. What do others think?

    Praise the Lord!!!!!!

    I just heard on the news where all eight of the missionaries have been rescued, taken to Pakistan and picked up by the American Military and are on their way back to America.

    I truly believe that God must have had his hand in this as I did not honestly expect them to still be alive.

    WOW!!! I heared it here first! Thanks for the news. I was thinking earlier today that a hostage situation with these eight could be our next great stumbling block. Let the posterior punting commence.

    While it is good these workers were freed, I’m concerned about people being now suckered into the illusion.

    As I view this thread, the people in question have been rescued and are now in safe hands. Unless there are anyother developments that grow directly from these folks's capture by the Taliban, this thread has just about run its course.

    Islam is a man-made religion from the dreams of a pedophile mad-man.
