Thou shalt not leave

A splendid turn of phrase for our Malaysian readers, from the savants at Gates of Vienna (GoV):

...the portal to Islam is a one-way valve: people may pass through the door into Islam, but no one is allowed to return through it, on pain of death.

It’s certainly true that once Muslims become a majority in a country, they use any and all methods at their disposal — lethal violence, threats, intimidation, legal sanctions, economic incentives, punitive taxation, clan warfare, social pressure — to persuade unbelievers to convert to Islam and stay there.

If this pithy and spot-on writing does not describe the situation in Malaysia for its entire national existence, I don't know what does.

Read the rest at GoV.
