A woman accused of adultery was stoned to death by Islamists in Somalia.
Asha Ibrahim Dhuhulow, 23, was buried up to her neck in front of hundreds of people Monday in a square in Kismayu and stones were hurled at her head. She was dragged out of the hole three times to see if she was dead.
Islamists said Dhuhulow wanted punishment under Sharia law.
"A woman in green veil and black mask was brought in a car as we waited to watch the merciless act of stoning," said Abdullahi Aden, who witnessed the execution. "We were told she submitted herself to be punished, yet we could see her screaming as she was forcefully bound, legs and hands."
When a relative and others surged forward to rescue her, guards opened fire and killed a child, witnesses said.

Welcome to Somalia, nastiest place on earth.

Right now Somalia is 10,000 times worse than most areas of Afghanistan, yet no one wants to talk about Somalia. Figure that out.

Sounds like a lovely country to visit.

Peaceful loving religion FTW!!!

Somalia is a scary place. Holy shit.
Is it bad that when I saw it was from Faux that I questioned the veracity of the account?
10/30/2008 8:54:42 PM
Well, ain't that loving...

Thanks. <Crosses Somalia off his itinerary>

Religion - A bad excuse for killing people you don't like!

The religion of peace.
If you're a moderate, I suggest you guys collectively branch off and form a new religion that doesn't suck as much.
Call it Islam 2.0, or Islam XP, or Islam 4.0, or Islam 7 or something.

Somalia or Saudi Arabia; which is more retarded?
10/30/2008 11:23:10 PM
Ahh. the religion of peace.

I am actually relieved that I can still get mad about the cruel barbarity with which humans treat each other (particularly in the name of one "god" or another)
I'll likely regret asking, but was there a punishment for the MAN with whom the young lady commited adultery. (DRTA)

"It's not our fault, she wanted to be stoned to death!"
10/30/2008 11:52:37 PM
I just... there's nothing I can say to this that properly expresses what I'm feeling. The closest thing would have to be, "I fucking hate people."

I laughed so hard. Islam XP indeed. (It's much easier to follow than Islam Vista.)

Since this was on Fox News, I'll bet the next rejoinder was:
"Now, why can't we get back to traditional values like these in America?"

I weep for humanity.

Islam. Religion of peace.

Of course not. She probably exposed an ankle, and he was thereby rendered powerless under her seductive spell.

I'm a kuffaar and proud.

The Religion of Peace commits another benevolent act, I see.
10/31/2008 12:01:38 PM
you wonder why so many people who were from Somalia flee to another country to safety... that is deeply disturbing
10/31/2008 12:27:13 PM
Fucking barbaric savages. That may not be PC but when they act like it I have no qualms in attaching that label to them.
