Muslims Converting To Christianity

A Turkish man who is believed to be a descendant of Mohammed himself has come to know Jesus as his Lord and Messiah (from Atlas Shrugs):

They are not going to like this down at the mosque. Not one bit. This man's life is not worth a plug nickel. Want to convert to Islam? Think twice. Because if you change your mind, you're an apostate and they will kill you. Channelling Centanni and Wiigs here and here
Descendant of Muhammad converts to Christianity But faces threat to life if forced to return to Turkey

A Turk who claims to be a descendant of Islam's prophet Muhammad has converted to Christianity while living in Germany.

But Sedar Dedeoglu, of Luedenscheid, now faces a threat to his life if he's forced to return to Turkey, and is seeking help from German authorities.

Dedeoglu, who is involved in Christian outreach programs among Muslims, has been receiving death threats from Muslims unwilling to accept his conversion. His relatives also regard the apostasy as shameful.

If Dedeoglu is returned to his native country, he very likely would be killed, his lawyer says.

And, in France, Muslims are converting to Christianity by the thousands:

Zee News from India has some great news from France, (except for those who have to go into hiding) about how tons of Muslims are converting every year to Christianity (via IRIS Blog):

Muslims are converting to Christianity in their thousands in France but face exclusion from their families and even death threats.

Most Muslims hide their conversion and Protestant ministers do their utmost to protect new converts. It is estimated that every year in the world some six million Muslims convert to Christianity.

The Muezzin call to prayer. But here in France it is no longer reaching all Muslim ears.Around 15,000 Muslims each year are converting to Christianity - around 10,000 to Catholicism and 5,000 to Protestantism.[...]

Many Muslims in France hide their conversion but the trend is continuing. World wide around six million Muslims a year convert to Christianity.

If my estimates are correct, the Muslims population in France may actually be shrinking, as many of them turn to Christianity instead.
