Story On Islamic Crackdown Spreading

WorldNetDaily has picked up the story of the Algerian crackdown on Christianity today. They write:
As attention focused on an Afghan Christian convert who faced the death penalty for his conversion, Algeria quietly passed a law that punishes anyone who persuades a Muslim to leave his faith, with up to five years in prison, and banishes house churches.

The government said the law's purpose is to prohibit "clandestine organizations" it claims are secretly trying to convert Muslims, according to London-based Alarab Online.
Hopefully there will be a bit of a snowball effect, as the word on the Islamic crackdown begins to spread.

(And thanks to John, Yorkie Lady, Will, Paulo, and others who've picked up the story.)
