Islam spread by the sword

From Adnkronos International:

An Iranian army colonel who many years ago converted to Christianity has been summoned to appear before a Tehran court on charges of apostasy, that is publicly rejecting the faith in which one has been raised. Hamid Pourmand, 47, is the first Iranian for more than ten years to be tried for this crime, which carries the death penalty. Now retired, Pourmand is a pastor with the protestant Assembly of God faith in the city of Bushehr, the site of Iran's main nuclear reactor.

It speaks very little of Islam that Moslems must use the threat of death to prevent people from choosing not to be a Moslem. Yes, I know that not all Moslems approve of what Iran is doing, but then I don't seem to hear all that much objection to it from them.
