Jaladhi, thank you for your kind words. I forgot to include mentioning the most menacing aspect of Julie's speculative conversion to Islam-that of placing her life in danger if she should wish to apostatize from the "religion of peace". As you stated, the penalty specified in the Quran for such an act is death, and were she to be living under Sharia law there would be a great possibility of her being executed.

I have read Robert Spencer's book "The Truth About Muhammad (and the Quran)" and highly recommend it to all of those who want to know from where the likes of Osama bin Laden, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Hamas, Al Qaeda, Hizbollah, and all of the jihadists derive their motivation. They assert that they pattern their actions after the "perfect man", Muhammad, and the Quran, which orders them to fight the infidels and subdue them as dhimmis, extorting the "jizzya" tax, converting them to Islam, or slaying them. In particular, the Jews are to be killed, for the Quran says, "the rock will say to the Muslim, there is a Jew hiding behind me, come and kill him". No wonder there is no peace in the Middle East, for the Palestinians are taught from their youth to hate the Jews and eventually to destroy the state of Israel.
