choice (peace, or annihilation)

in Afghanistan, that "liberated" country, a man is awaiting trial. he will probably be sentenced to death. he converted to christianity yet was reported by his islamic family. i could go on and on and on about this, about how injust it is, about how these things have nothing to do with religion and respect for each other any more, but i will not start. i hope these words from Anthony Burgess's A Clockwork Orange will suffise. not that they will change the world.

"When a man cannot choose, he ceases to be a man."
