Somali Convert from Islam Whipped in Public Compass

Woman left bleeding in front of hundreds of spectators for becoming Christian. NAIROBI, Kenya, January 10 (CDN) — A Somali convert from Islam was paraded before a cheering crowd last month and publicly flogged as a punishment for embracing a “foreign religion,” sources said.

Sofia Osman, a 28-year-old Christian from Janale city in Somali’as Lower Shabelle region, had been taken into custody by Islamic extremist al Shabaab militants in November; the public whipping was meant to mark her release. She received 40 lashes on Dec. 22 while jeered by spectators.

“Osman was whipped 40 lashes at 3 p.m., but she didn’t tell what other humiliations she had suffered while in the hands of the militants,” an eyewitness, told Compass, adding that whipping left her bleeding. “I saw her faint. I thought she had died, but soon she regained consciousness and her family took her away.”

The whipping was administered in front of hundreds of spectators after Osman was released from her month-long custody in al Shabaab camps. Nursing her injuries at her family’s home, in the days after the punishment she would not talk to anyone and looked dazed, a source close in touch with the family said. She has since been relocated.

“Please pray for her quick recovery,” the source said.

Islam is full of cowards and bullies who are running a scam. Someone who is confident of their beliefs does not need to throw pearls before swine. The truth exists independent of anyone’s belief. Only when you are running a CON do you have to stop people from questioning and taking or leaving your religion. Islam is 1000 miles wide but only a few inches deep. It has to be kept in place through force and intimidation.

Qur’an:9:112 “The Believers fight in Allah’s Cause; they slay and are slain, kill and are killed.”

All you have to do is read what they have to say. n/s

The Religion of Peace I think the dopes in the media call Islam. Do I have that right?

It’s like the Gates Test. When you pull the gates (of Islam) up, do the people run in our run out?
