from jihadwatch:

"It is stories like this that make the smooth deceptions of Muslim spokesmen such as Salam al-Marayati, M. Cherif Bassiouni, and Ali Eteraz so dangerous. They assure us that Islam has no death penalty for apostasy, despite Muhammad's words,'Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him.' If al-Marayati, Bassiouni and Eteraz were sincere, they would be denouncing the Iranian action here and working against it, instead of attacking Western non-Muslims who dare to point out the grim reality of Islam's death penalty for apostasy."

Dishing out threats of death for apostasy makes sure that almost everyone sticks to Islam whatever they really think!
