City of Brass

wretched savage barbaric murdering evil obscene damned

Believe me, the title of this post is mild praise compared to what these subhuman animals deserve:

An Islamist rebel administration in Somalia had a 13-year-old girl stoned to death for adultery after the child’s father reported that three men had raped her.

Amnesty International said the al-Shabab militia, which controls the southern port city of Kismayo, arranged for a group of 50 men to stone Aisha Ibrahim Duhulow in front of a crowd of about 1,000 spectators. A lorryload of stones was brought to the stadium for the killing.

Amnesty said that Duhulow struggled with her captors and had to be forcibly carried into the stadium.

“At one point during the stoning, Amnesty International has been told by numerous eyewitnesses that nurses were instructed to check whether Aisha Ibrahim Duhulow was still alive when buried in the ground. They removed her from the ground, declared that she was, and she was replaced in the hole where she had been buried for the stoning to continue,” the human rights group said.

This is the kind of thing that leaves me shaking with fury. This isn’t about religion, or politics, or anything more complicated than simple barbarism, raw and naked in its primal expression. It’s a cancer that deserves to be stamped from this earth. It is hirabah, and they are muharib.

The one infinitesimal sliver of a silver lining to this story is a tragedy in and of itself:

“Inside the stadium, militia members opened fire when some of the witnesses to the killing attempted to save her life, and shot dead a boy who was a bystander.”

In other words, even in a stadium full of bloodthirsty orcs, there were some mensch, who were willing to risk their lives to prevent the atrocity unfolding in front of them. Allah have mercy on their souls – and take the measure of all those present, who did nothing, on Judgement Day, accordingly.

    ORCAS or ORCS:
    Orcas are wounderful wild creatures with great intelligence. They kill to eat! To meet one in ‘person’ can be scary but tinged with revalations of unity.
    Occs are monsters from mythology-Orge. If you must rely on mythology as an informational source, then dream on. Or if you use this term as an anology, reference point then these humans have had their judgement; they are deprived of their souls and salvation.
    Blood thirsty humans, who are taught by action and words, are the fruit of their learning and their society.
    Sincerely,

    This is an inhuman act that must be stopped. This is NOT Islam!!! I pray, that those responsible are punished threefold to what they did to that innocent little girl. She is with God now, in a much better place. I pray for her and those who tried to protect her. A heart renching story, that everyone should read. This violence is not accepted ANYWHERE or ANYTIME.
    I pray to God, to keep Aisha close to Him…

    It’s been said before, but “God hates Africa”.

    I have heard of so many instances just like this one in the world of Islamic. I am only shocked that people are surprised. Men and women should be treated equally and until Islamic sees that, this type of behavior will continue across the globe. I have heard of it in Iraq and Iran. If a girl is raped, it is supposedly her fault. Why is it that one man’s testimony is greater than two women? Why can a man divorce but not a woman. Why must a woman cover her face but not a man? There is a great deal wrong here! Sure there are over zealous Christians who have bombed Abortion clinics, but if you took raw data statistics, it shows there are more radical Islams than there are radical groups in any other religion. Islam needs to preach love not death to infidels like what is in the Quran. I have read it and find a great deal to be disappointed in.
