On the Wing

Flying in the face of widespread left wing extremism!

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.

  1. Interesting that they were sorry for shooting the child. Could it be the loss of some future suicide bomber?

    It has now come out , that she was in fact a 13 year old girl, who had been trying to report a rape. Not a grown woman!!!

    Yes. I saw that too. What really gets me going, is that we have not yet heard one word of condemnation from the so-called leaders of the Islamic world and very little from all the “human rights” organisations. Or the feminists. How can anyone condone this? The world should be up in arms. But, no. Hardly a murmur. Just a bump in the road. Move along folks, nothing to see here. Except, perhaps, the mutilated corpse of a thirteen year old girl stoned to death by the very people who should be protecting her.
    I firmly believe that we are dealing with a sub-human mentality.
