Somali Children Made To Watch Executions

From those defenders of the faith at BBC New:

Somalis ‘made to view executions’

Hundreds of people in Somalia have been forced to watch Islamist militants executing two people accused of spying.

People in Merca said al-Shabab militia patrolled the town with loudspeakers, demanding they attend the executions.

The militants also ordered schools to close for the day as they were keen for children to watch the two men being shot dead by a firing squad.

Most of those at the execution, on a patch of open ground, are reported to have been women and children…

Somali children’s rights groups say al-Shabab is intent on brainwashing the young to believe in violent Islamism.

In this way, it can ensure it has a steady supply of recruits, ready to fight for its aim of establishing extreme Islamist rule, not only in Somalia but far beyond its borders.

More selling points for the wonders of Sharia law and the Religion Of Peace In General.

The hell you say.

Now that is news.

    Nothing like 100% consistency with the Barberism that dominated the world for 10 millenia.

    It worked out quite well for the .001% who had the stomach and cruelty to impose their will on those unable to resist. And being the descendent of gods, or the gods chosen representatives sure has been an effective companion to that cruelty.

    So what’s not to like….if you are a Mullah, a Stalinist, a barbarian, a butcher, a mass-murderer, a sadist, a nazi, a despot, an emperor or one of their modern day admirers.

    Put a little lipstick on it, and you might even be as pretty as say, a Rahm Emmanuel.
