Arguably, in burning his wife, Aslam transgressed the bounds of Islam. This is because burning as a punishment is reserved for Allah, who says in the Qur’an that he could have guided everyone to the truth, but instead decided to burn some people in hell:

And if we had willed, We could have given every soul its guidance, but the word from Me will come into effect [that] “I will surely fill Hell with jinn and people all together” (32:13).

According to a hadith, burning is solely Allah’s prerogative. In a controversy over some apostates from Islam having been burned to death – not because Islam doesn’t mandate death for those who leave the religion, but because of the way it was done:

Ali burnt some people and this news reached Ibn ‘Abbas, who said, “Had I been in his place I would not have burnt them, as the Prophet said, ‘Don’t punish (anybody) with Allah’s Punishment.’  No doubt, I would have killed them, for the Prophet said, ‘If somebody (a Muslim) discards his religion, kill him’” (Bukhari 4.52.260).

I hear and read stories of American women, Christians and Jews both, who marry a Muslim and convert to the religion. Why would any American woman give up her rights and freedoms to become a slave of a man with a 7th century mentality who would beat her or even kill her if she dared to disobey. I think there should be a total embargo of immigration of any Muslim country to the United States; regardless if it's a student or even some officer going to the War College. Inviting Muslims into our country is the same as inviting our enemies into our camp; enough already with political correctness.

Guess the 9/11 Islamic pilots weren't too concerned about the no burning thing either.

It is interesting that our 'allies' in Pakistan have a picture of a terrorist recruiting center featured on their money.

I understand, and sympathize with, the plight of women born into islam, but it is beyond me as to why any woman would voluntarily join that death cult. Or why any woman would stay if she had a chance to leave. I understand that the punishment for leaving islam is death, generally at the hands of your own family, but if given a chance, why would any choose to stay for the sake of the religion?

Stockholm syndrome? If you grow up believing you will go to hell if you leave Islam and are brainwashed from the time you are a little child... I would imagine it's hard to leave. What I don't understand is how the leftist multiculturists in this country can defend this type of culture.

Because they want to use Mujahideen as foot soldiers against those "evil Christians" that they hate so much.

There is the root of the entire thing. The Muslims believe it was Ishmael, the Jews and Christians believe it was Isaac. A family feud, thousands of years old.

This is not exactly a family feud because Christians and Jews don't care if Muslims believe it was Ishmael - if it were up to us there would be no feud. The Muslims, on the other hand, care very much what others believe.

I think there's also a reason why they replaced Isaac with Ishmael. After all, Isaac was there in the story for a couple of millennia before Islam and Muhammad must have known the story from the Jews and Christians living in Mecca because the Muslim story is more or less the same except the replacement of Isaac with Ishmael. As it happens Muhammad was Arab and the Jews believe the Arabs are the descendants of Ishmael, so replacing Isaac with Ishmael most likely happened for this reason. Much like the purpose of building a mosque on top of the Temple Mount and converting ancient churches, Buddhist and Hindu temples, and synagogues into mosques. The purpose is replacing all other religions with Islam. So this is not a family feud between members disagreeing on this or that detail, but one religion that wishes to extinguish all other religions.

Did Mohammad know the story? Yes, he heard many stories from the Jews and the Christians of that time but did he really listen to them? He used a lot of them in his fable but he got most of them terribly wrong. Wrong names, wrong places, wrong circumstances, did he get anything right? Oh, and how long was it before anyone decided to write down his rambling godsends? A hundred years? A hundred and fifty?

No, not thousands of years old. Until the Koran's authors decided to counterfeit the story of the Akedah and subsitute Ishamel for Isaac, there was no document contradicting the biblical story. The 'feud' if you can call it that, is at best 1300 years old, but it is not really feud as much as it is Muslims denying the validity of any other religion.
