Somalia Town Threatens to Behead People (must pray 5 times)
FoxNews ^ | 06 December, 2006 | Al AP

Posted on 12/06/2006 10:21:49 AM PST by batter

MOGADISHU, Somalia — Residents of a southern Somalia town who do not pray five times a day will be beheaded, an official said Wednesday, adding the edict will be implemented in three days.

Shops, tea houses and other public places in Bulo Burto, about 124 miles northeast of the capital, Mogadishu, should be closed during prayer time and no one should be on the streets, said Sheik Hussein Barre Rage, the chairman of the town's Islamic court. His court is part of a network backed by armed militiamen that has taken control of much of southern Somalia in recent months, bringing a strict interpretation of Islam that is alien to many Somalis.

They crawled into a time machine and can't quite figure out how to get it out of the 7th century.

What do you suppose the odds are that this story will be on any of the MSM evening news channels tonight?

A million to one?

A billion to one?

A ka-jillion trillion to one?

This wouldn't even have happened in the 7th century.

This level of insane strictness is new even for Islam.

Ethiopia is threatening to attack Somalia as a defensive measure. Shall we send them guns?

Ethiopia's regime isn't a pleasant one, but at least they are willing to stop a Taliban-lite regime on their doorstep. I say give them air support too.

They don't have the option. The Islamists ordered guns to be turned in a few weeks ago. Wanna guess what happens next?

The one who is armed has the option. Firearms are assumed, but I had sharp-edged weapons in mind. Nobody crowds a man who wears a sword.

Hmmm, if you don't pray 5 times a day you get beheaded.

Does that mean that if you pray 10 times a day you get.....

You do understand why they will succeed hugely in Somalia. The ground is plenty fertile for the Islamists to impose their courts and strict form of societal control.

Islamists feel plenty good about themselves showing the grasshopper eaters a better way. First thing cover up those floppies and that junk from foot to toe. Don't show a scrap of skin lest those leopard like men jump you for sex like an animal on the open plain. Our version of infidel is going to blow their crap away when they come griping about us being equally brutish.

Wish the US could give orders like this (minus the beheading, of course): you will surrender the name of the baby's father, you will pay child support, you will not drink and drive, you will spend life in prison (or worse) if you kill another human being. Many others... A silly dream, I know.

I suggest we find a golf course with a well stocked clubhouse for the ISG...and confine them there. That's all they're qualified to do.

Well, then, the MSM will destroy their reputation and the Democrats will abandon them like Jimmy Carter did with the Shah of Iran.

Funny you should mention him...remember it was the Fascist Italian invasion of Ethiopia which portended (among other things) World War II. It's interesting that once again, we return to Ethiopia.

Sadly that wouldn't be difficult to do. However, the Somalian regime is pure evil.

Who is going to be on the streets during prayer times to make sure no one is on the streets during prayer time?

I hope this country wakes to the clear and present danger of Islam before we hear some guy calling us to forced prayers 5 times a day.

One big difference, however, is that the Nazis troops had sense enough, in general, to avoid death. The new fascists worship death.

In days past, I took an evening walk through the streets of Al Khobar. My walk ususally coincided in part with prayer time.

It was interesting to observe the society.

Many men went to the mosque to pray and to socialize. There are many many mosques, public and semi private. The auto traffic remained about the same,but I seem to recall there was reduced foot traffic. One comical sight were all the Philippinos in Domino Pizza uniforms, sitting on the street and curbs, smoking and chatting until they could go back to work.

Telling, perhaps fortelling the future, were many young men who came to the autoteller machine kiosks just outside the bank on my route. Auto teller machines don't sleep and don't pray.

Even the WWII Japanese seem more rational than the Islamofascists, but, to be honest, I'm not as well versed in WWII Japanese beliefs in relation to today's Islam as I should be.

If only all Muslims were this strict, and this prepared to behead each other. They wouldn't have the time, or heads enough left atop of shoulders, to blow up Jews and Westerners.
