Moderate Islamist group had long suspected woman in Puntland was Christian.
Three masked members of a militant Islamist group in Somalia last week shot and killed a Somali Christian who declined to wear a veil as prescribed by Muslim custom...
Members of the comparatively moderate Suna Waljameca group killed Amina Muse Ali... in her home .
Ali had told Christian leaders that she had received several threats from members of Suna Waljameca for not wearing a veil, symbolic of adherence to Islam. She had said members of the group had long monitored her movements because they suspected she was a Christian.
The source said Ali had called him on Oct. 4 saying, My life is in danger. I am warned of dire consequences if I continue to live without putting on the veil. I need prayers from the fellowship.
It is unknown how many secret Christians there are in Somalia... but what is certain is that they are in danger from both extremist groups and Somali law. While proclaiming himself a moderate, President Sheikh Sharif Sheikh Ahmed has embraced a version of sharia that mandates the death penalty for those who leave Islam.
Her death follows the murders of several other Christians by Islamic extremists in the past year.
On Feb. 21 al Shabaab militants beheaded two young boys in Somalia because their Christian father refused to divulge information about a church leader.

Religion of peace!
islam is satan worship, period.
It takes a strong faith to live as a Christian in a muslim country.
Ahh cultural tolerance.
No First Amendment in Somalia.
It’ll be happening here very soon. Or at least in Europe.
This woman was a brave soul. How sad.
Ah, but they insist that others tolerate islam.
Remember, all religions are of equal value and worth and everyone worships the same God.
Pray for this girl.
I heard that 30,000 Iraqis are destined to be resettled in the USA. We have had a number of Somali terrorists return to their country to pursue terrorism and piracy. More Islamic voters for Obama in 2012.
I’m confused...in other countries (like Mexico) women wear lace veils on their heads when they go to church...and it’s making a comeback here in the U.S.
These were moderate Muslims, right?
Well, they killed a woman and created a saint. Not what they had in mind, but Heaven’s army is growing.
Religion of Pieces!
With their fondness for beheadings, amputations, and suicide bombings its one body piece here, one body piece there....
And it looks pretty besides...
Every notice that almost no news story about Muslims fails to mention how much angrier they are? They stays angry and feel vindicated only when a head comes off. I am sick of Obama putting down America’s Christian roots from the Bible while fabricating this facade about the goodness of Islam.
I see...thank you for the explanation.
