Sorry!

Once again, Islamic justice has shown us “the way”…

The 23-year-old woman was placed in a hole up to her neck for the execution late yesterday in front of hundreds of people in a square in the southern port of Kismayu, which the Islamist insurgents captured in August.

Stones were hurled at her head and she was pulled out three times to see if she was dead, witnesses said. When a relative and others surged forward, guards opened fire, killing a child.

“A woman in green veil and black mask was brought in a car as we waited to watch the merciless act of stoning,” one local resident, Abdullahi Aden, told Reuters.

“We were told she submitted herself to be punished, yet we could see her screaming as she was forcefully bound, legs and hands. A relative of hers ran towards her, but the Islamists opened fire and killed a child.”

The European Union’s presidency condemned the stoning.

“The EU … condemns a particularly vile execution, which the Islamist insurgents who took control of the city deliberately publicised,” it said in a statement.

The Islamists last carried out public executions when they ruled Mogadishu and most of south Somalia for half of 2006. Allied Ethiopian and Somali government forces toppled them at the end of that year, but they have waged an Iraq-style guerrilla campaign since then, gradually taking territory back.

As when they ruled Mogadishu in 2006, the Islamists now controlling the Kismayu area are again providing much-needed security, but also imposing fundamentalist practices such as banning forms of entertainment seen as anti-Islamic.

Relatives of the woman executed in Kismayu, whom they named as Asha Ibrahim Dhuhulow, were furious.

“The stoning was totally irreligious and illogical,” said her sister, who asked not to be named. “Islam does not execute a woman for adultery unless four witnesses and the man with whom she committed sex are brought forward publicly.”

Islamist leaders at the execution said the woman had broken Islamic law. They promised to punish the guard who had shot the child in the melee around the execution.

“We apologise for killing the child. And we promise we shall bring the one who opened fire before the courts and deal with him accordingly,” one unnamed Islamist leader told the crowd.

Oh well. At least one of them apologised for unnecessarily killing the child, even if the coward didn’t want his name mentioned.

What a wonderful religion. What wonderful people. I can’t understand why we don’t invite a few more in.

Brussels Revisited

Posted by Exile on October 14, 2008

Having had good reason to travel all the way to Germany last weekend, a group of friends plus myself took a week off work and made a late holiday of it. Our business concluded, we journeyed off to Brussels.

The last time I was there was in September last year. I was there for the SIOE demonstration that was so badly mauled by the Belgian police at the invitation of mayor Freddie Thieleman. Well, I hope he’s happy now because as far as I could see, Brussels is lost to us. The demography has shifted, the white people are leaving in droves and the town looks even more depressed than it did a year ago. I will not be going back there again. Ever. The centre of Brussels is encircled by a ring of foreign occupation that stretches out in every direction round the old city. It doesn’t feel safe to be out after twelve at night. The town is beginning to decay. Gangs of youngsters hang around on street corners most of the evening and when they get bored they appear to amuse themselves by setting fire to the piles of rubbish that adorn the streets and then wait for the fire services and police to arrive. It happened every evening in the area of our hotel, which was no further than 1000 metres from “Le Grand Plads”. Even if it didn’t come to violence, the tension in the air was obvious.

Poor old Brussels. Once magnificent, now slowly dying, is a non-European multicultural disaster area.

Don’t go there. It isn’t worth the bother any more.
