    What we can expect from Pat Buchanan's idea of "realist" international relations:

    Reuters:

    The 15-year prison sentence given to a woman and her seven children by an Egyptian court for converting to Christianity is a sign of things to come, according to alarmed human rights advocates who say the nation's Islamist government is bad news for Christians in the North African country.

    A criminal court in the central Egyptian city of Beni Suef meted out the shocking sentence last week, according to the Arabic-language Egyptian paper Al-Masry Al-Youm. Nadia Mohamed Ali, who was raised a Christian, converted to Islam when she married Mohamed Abdel-Wahhab Mustafa, a Muslim, 23 years ago. He later died, and his widow planned to convert her family back to Christianity in order to obtain an inheritance from her family. She sought the help of others in the registration office to process new identity cards between 2004 and 2006. When the conversion came to light under the new regime, Nadia, her children and even the clerks who processed the identity cards were all sentenced to prison.

    Samuel Tadros, a research fellow at Hudson Institute's Center for Religious Freedom, said conversions like Nadia's have been common in the past, but said Egypt's new Sharia-based constitution "is a real disaster in terms of religion freedom."

    "The cases will increase in the future," Tadros said. "It will be much harder for people to return to Christianity."

    President Mohamed Morsi, who was elected last June and succeeded the secular reign of Hosni Mubarak, who is now in prison, pushed the new constitution through last year.

    Tadros said the constitution limits the practice of Christianity because "religious freedom has to be understood within the boundaries of Sharia." He added that the constitution prescribes that the highest Sunni authority should be referred to as an interpreter of the religion clause contained in the constitution.


    The president's "Arab Spring" policies are in tatters. There has not been a revolution anywhere that has not morphed into an anti-American, anti-human rights nightmare. Obama has turned the largest Arab state with the largest Arab army over to crazy men who think Jews are descended from apes and pigs and who think that "religious liberty" depends on how a radical Sunni "authority" interprets the constitution.

    What will the world look like 4 years from now?

    For those who think that Egypt's policies are none of our business, remember that Egypt has received billions of dollars in US aid, including military equipment, which will be used to persecute religious minorities by Islamist thugs, and to spread Islam beyond Egypt's borders.

    Nothing to see here. You republicons always overreact. Muslims have no interest in doing what you say they want to do. Sharia is not on the rise. Muslims respect all religions and are peaceful and don't want to convert you. Now come over here and put your head in the sand or up your ass like I am.

    Duh.

    Give them another two billion Fredo. I wonder what the penalty is for converting to Judaism? I don't think we'll ever know because much like there are no homosexuals in Iran, no one ever converts to Judaism.
