The Jawa Report blogged An Egyptian group calling itself the "al-Jama’ah Consultative Council" has sent an e-mail hit list to people deemed 'apostates' yesterday. The group warned that those people on the list who had left the faith would have three days (as of yesterday) to repent or they would be killed. The group also warned that the wives and children of the Muslim apostates were being followed & would be killed.
That is interesting. They are saying they will kill the innocent. Is that supported in the Quran?Under Islamic Law, the maximum penalty for apostasy is death.
Even though it does not say so in the QuranThe list includes prominent Muslims living in the West who have spoken out against violent Islamic extremism and intolerance,
So they are still Muslims; they have just spoken out against violent Islamic extremism and intolerance, and Surat an-Nisa,093 (Quran 4.93) says "If a man kills a believer intentionally, his recompense is Hell, to abide therein (For ever): And the wrath and the curse of Allah are upon him, and a dreadful penalty is prepared for him."some still living in Muslim countries, as well as Coptic Christians who have advocated equal treatment in Egypt.
