Somalia (MNN) ― Somalia's Muslim militants are hunting down converts to Christianity. According to Voice of the Martyrs Canada, Al-Shabaab members have murdered 14 believers since July 15.

Compass Direct News reports the September 15 shooting death of 69-year-old Omar Khalafe, an underground Christian who had Bibles in his possession.

On the day of his death, Khalafe was carrying 25 Somali Bibles he hoped to deliver to an underground fellowship in Somalia. At a checkpoint controlled by al Shabaab--a rebel group linked with al Qaeda which has taken over large parts of the war-torn country--bus passengers were ordered to disembark for inspection.

Voice of the Martyrs Canada and Compass Direct reports agree on the events following the discovery of the Bibles.

The assailants used photos they found to determine if they could match the faces to any passengers. When they noticed a resemblance to Khalafe, they asked if the Bibles were his. The radicals shot and killed him when he did not respond.

Militants then displayed his body in Merca along with the Bibles as a warning to others. Later that day, a militant reported Khalafe's death on a radio program.

“Islam is a religion of peace”

Sure, if you’re dead, you’re peaceful.

Revelation 6

9When he opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain because of the word of God and the testimony they had maintained. 10They called out in a loud voice, “How long, Sovereign Lord, holy and true, until you judge the inhabitants of the earth and avenge our blood?” 11Then each of them was given a white robe, and they were told to wait a little longer, until the number of their fellow servants and brothers who were to be killed as they had been was completed.

They really ought to split it up into something that is not just a free-for-all kill the Christians kind of thing. How about going after the Catholics, Reformed, Baptist, Protestant, and other denominations in certain parts of the year....kind of like we hunt animals here in Michigan..........

HUMMMMMMMMMM hold on.....I thought islam WAS the religion of PEACE........how could I think such a thing?

Don’t worry, God will take care of them. Just read Ezekiel 38 & 39.

“Soon to be an Olympic sport for 2016 Chicago.”

Looks like the Islamic trash in Detroit is merely “practicing for the Olympics” - who knew?

My brother, may we meet at the feet of Christ, in heaven.

Prayers for his family, and for the unbelievers.

I am a Catholic.....at least I was raised Catholic. Nothing like a good ol religious war here in America to solidify my belief that America IS a CHRISTIAN nation.

Heaven forbid this happened in the USA.....the response would make the Crusades look like a carnival event.

“Muslim Militants Slay Long-Time Christian in Somalia”

SNIPPET: “NAIROBI, Kenya, September 18 (CDN) — The faith journey of a long-time underground Christian in Somalia ended in tragedy this week when Islamic militants controlling a security checkpoint killed him after finding Bibles in his possession.

Militants from the Muslim extremist al Shabaab killed 69-year-old Omar Khalafe on Tuesday (Sept. 15) at a checkpoint they controlled 10 kilometers from Merca, a Christian source told Compass. A port city on the Indian Ocean 70 kilometers (45 miles) from Mogadishu, Merca is the main city of the Lower Shabele region.”
