O.K. Islamic world, you know how you guys are always complaining about injustices (real and or perceived) that you suffer from Israel, The US, Christians, Jews, etc., etc., YET AGAIN, I hear no sounds of protest from MUSLIMS about what has happened (yet again) within your Islamic world. A young 23 year old woman is stoned (buried from the neck down) was stoned to death for the crime of...adultry. Here is a link to the story and here are some excerpts (with DJBA Commentary ON):
"The 23-year-old woman was placed in a hole up to her neck for the execution late on Monday in front of hundreds of people in a square of the southern port of Kismayu, which the Islamist insurgents captured in August. Stones were hurled at her head, and she was brought out of the hole three times to see if she had died. When a relative and others surged forward, guards opened fire, killing a child, the witnesses said.
"A woman in green veil and black mask was brought in a car as we waited to watch the merciless act of stoning," one local resident, Abdullahi Aden, told Reuters. "We were told she submitted herself to be punished, yet we could see her screaming as she was forcefully bound, legs and hands. A relative of hers ran towards her, but the Islamists opened fire and killed a child."
OK Lets stop here for a minute....It's O.K. to KILL a child, but adultery deserves a death sentence? Then of course they claim "the punishment was her choice? We go on to read in the article:
"The Islamists last carried out public executions when they ruled Mogadishu and most of south Somalia for half of 2006. Allied Ethiopian and Somali government forces toppled them at the end of that year, but they have waged an Iraq-style guerrilla campaign since then, gradually taking territory back."
You know, I wish the US had worked with these Islamist, not like how we work with the Islamist in Afghanistan (supporting their brand of lunacy), personally, I am very imperialistic about the whole thing (surprise) we should have worked with them, helped rebuild infrastructure, put a US flag on every school, hospital, power plant and water treatment center, and let the people see what a little capitalism, democracy and actually FREEDOM looks like, let them make the choice, support them when they overthrew the Islamist, and pursued, close with and destroyed any resistance. BUT hey that's me..we go on...
"The stoning was totally irreligious and illogical," said her sister, who asked not to be named. "Islam does not execute a woman for adultery unless four witnesses and the man with whom she committed sex are brought forward publicly."
So if there were six witnesses and the guy was brought forth, stoning them BOTH would have been o.k.? O.K., here is where we show the difference in Christianity and Islam or should I say in JESUS and Mohammed: John 8:7 "But when they persisted in asking Him, He straightened up, and said to them, "He who is without sin among you, let him be the first to throw a stone at her."
Muslims say that Jesus was at least a prophet, and you honor HIM, Honor THAT....anyway as we go on:
"Islamist leaders at the execution said the woman had breached Islamic law. They promised to punish the guard who had shot the child in the melee around the execution. "We apologise for killing the child. And we promise we shall bring the one who opened fire before the courts and deal with him accordingly," one unnamed Islamist leader told the crowd."
So, in further reading it appears they are consistent in their insanity...
