And the sentence is...

Well, in a Muslim country, it depends. If you are a Muslim caught beheading Christian schoolgirls, you might get 14-20 years in prison. If you are a Christian caught doing, well anything that any Muslims don't like (like being accused of smuggling drugs, you could get the death penalty.

This is not to defend drug smugglers. However, the disparity in sentencing is striking. As Publus Pundit points out, it does make you wonder if there is a little bit of anti-Christian/Western bias operating here. And yet these are the same folks who cry for extra-legal protections when they receive any criticism based on their own actions.

Remind me again why the West has to compromise with these people? Hat tip to Publius Pundit.
