SOMALIA: ISLAMISTS BEHEAD TWO SONS OF CHRISTIAN LEADER
Compass Direct News ^ | July 01, 2009

Posted on 07/01/2009 7:19:05 PM PDT by george76

Father refuses to give al Shabaab extremists information about house church pastor.

Islamic extremists have beheaded two young boys in Somalia because their Christian father refused to divulge information about a church leader, and the killers are searching Kenya’s refugee camps to do the same to the boys’ father.

Before taking his Somali family to a Kenyan refugee camp in April, 55-year-old Musa Mohammed Yusuf himself was the leader of an underground church in Yonday village, 30 kilometers (19 miles) from Kismayo in Somalia. He had received instruction in the Christian faith from Salat Mberwa.

Militants from the Islamic extremist group al Shabaab entered Yonday village on Feb. 20, went to Yusuf’s house and interrogated him on his relationship with Mberwa, leader of a fellowship of 66 Somali Christians who meet at his home at an undisclosed city. Yusuf told them he knew nothing of Mberwa and had no connection with him. The Islamic extremists left but said they would return the next day.

“I watched my three boys dragged away helplessly as my youngest boy was crying,” Arbow said. “I knew they were going to be slaughtered. Just after some few minutes I heard a wailing cry from Abdulahi running towards the house. I could not hold my breath. I only woke up with all my clothes wet. I knew I had fainted due to the shock.”

With the help of neighbors, Arbow said, she buried the bodies of her two children the following day.

You need to read the whole article. The older boy who was beheaded was 12 y/o. The younger one was only 7.

And we let these Somali Muslims immigrate to this country and subsidize their families with taxpayer money. We must have a death wish.

Islam needs to be wiped off the face of the Earth...it promotes nothing but ignorance...and can be blamed for 90% of the violence in the world. It’s no more than the extension of the Arabic tribal system and no no place in today’s modern society.

I know my answer is violence and that I am no better than they are - but I want to protect what we have in Western civilization - not stand by and see it wasted by a bunch tribal elders and religious freaks bent on destruction, submission, and death!

That's true.

That said, I wouldn't mind being among those that send these scumbags to a very soon, but very painfully protracted meeting with God.

Obammie the Commie, on the other hand, may express his concern.

Do Obama protest or do he be happy ‘bout dis atrocity? Isn’t this just exactly what the mohammedans do all the time and everywhere they can? We need to step up the war on terror.

Somali....oh where does one begin when discussing a country that produces the best taxi drivers in the world??

Why is anyone surprised when they read about the actions of islamists doing the will of allah?

muzzies are born out of the a$$ which mad-mo created & people question why?

I'm not sure whom I detest more?

The muzzies, or the apologists?

Revelation 20:4 “ Then I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was given to them And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony of Jesus and because of the word of God, and those who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received the mark on their forehead and on their hand; and they came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.

5 The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were completed. This is the first resurrection. “

I can say no more except to pray for their family.

Isa 63:1 Who is this, coming from Edom, from Botzrah with clothing stained crimson, so magnificently dressed, so stately in his great strength? “It is I, who speak victoriously, I, well able to save.”
2 Why is your apparel red, your clothes like someone treading a winepress?
3 “I have trodden the winepress alone; from the peoples, not one was with me. So I trod them in my anger, trampled them in my fury; so their lifeblood spurted out on my clothing, and I have stained all my garments;
4 for the day of vengeance that was in my heart and my year of redemption have come.
5 I looked, but there was no one to help, and I was appalled that no one upheld me. Therefore my own arm brought me salvation, and my own fury upheld me.
6 In my anger I trod down the peoples, made them drunk with my fury, then poured out their lifeblood on the earth.”

Don’t worry, He’s coming.

9 And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: 10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, do you not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? 11 And white robes were given to every one of them; and it was said to them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellow servants also and their brothers, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled. Revelation 6:9-11

I’m reading a book called How The Catholic Church Built Western Civilization. A bit strong on the Catholic stuff but says that about 13th century, there were some of Aristotle’s writings which were rescued and translated into Arabic and made their way into Europe. They did influence Western thought and Christian Europe did much more with them than the Muslims. Good book. Sort of Western Civ for Dummies with a RC twist.

Exactly. We're going to have precisely the same problem with them in 20, 40, 80 or 100 years from now. The damned savages will be beheading our young grandchildren and great-grandchildren someday. Count on it. There's absolutely no getting around it unless ______ (I'll let Freepers fill that part in).

Muslims have been behaving like this for their entire 1500-year existence. They will never change. Damn them and damn the liberals who brought them here.

Revelation 14:The Harvest of the Earth
14I looked, and there before me was a white cloud, and seated on the cloud was one “like a son of man”[a] with a crown of gold on his head and a sharp sickle in his hand. 15Then another angel came out of the temple and called in a loud voice to him who was sitting on the cloud, “Take your sickle and reap, because the time to reap has come, for the harvest of the earth is ripe.” 16So he who was seated on the cloud swung his sickle over the earth, and the earth was harvested.

17Another angel came out of the temple in heaven, and he too had a sharp sickle. 18Still another angel, who had charge of the fire, came from the altar and called in a loud voice to him who had the sharp sickle, “Take your sharp sickle and gather the clusters of grapes from the earth’s vine, because its grapes are ripe.” 19The angel swung his sickle on the earth, gathered its grapes and threw them into the great winepress of God’s wrath. 20They were trampled in the winepress outside the city, and blood flowed out of the press, rising as high as the horses’ bridles for a distance of 1,600 stadia.[b]

Footnotes:

1. Revelation 14:14 Daniel 7:13
2. Revelation 14:20 That is, about 180 miles (about 300 kilometers)

I don’t understand why the father didn’t take his family with him when he left. Not blaming him, but I’m wondering if this horrendous murder of two innocent children could’ve been avoided.

Yep, and they’ve been behaving like this toward US for all of our existence too - remember Jefferson, the Leathernecks and the Barbary Pirates. Jefferson was told way back in 1784 by an ambassador from Tripoli that the Koran tells them to plunder and enslave non-Muslims.

But this is a religion of peace hijacked by extremists.

bull-****. The "islmmic" golden age was due to the Christians in Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, North Africa, Jordan, Iraq, Turkey, Iran. It was due to the Zoroastrians in Iran, Central Asia, Turkey, India. It was due to the Hindus and Buddhists in Afghanistan, Central Asia, western India (now Pakistan).

The only place that didn't experience the slammie golden age was the SAud peninsula: because Christians had been hounded out of there in the 8th century.

The rule is -- as the % of Mozzies increase, the overall culture, intelligence, IQ, civilisation, morality etc. decrease correspondingly.

Jesus said the greatest love was when we die for others, but said we must turn our own cheek. So, logically, we can and should defend, with our lives, the least of these (especially the Pre-born) and make sure you take a brother with you so he can cover your back, and you his. Jesus will avenge all the innocent murdered. God also views the acts of murder on a different time line than we do.
