Justice Under Sharia Law, and Other Islamic Fun!

Aisha Ibrahim Duhulow, age 13, was stoned to death on Monday 27 October, 2008 in a stadium in the southern port of Kismayu Somalia. Amnesty International said it had learned she and father had said she was gang raped by three men. The girl was accused of adultery in a Sharia court.

A witness who spoke to the BBC's 'Today' programme said she had been crying and had to be forced into a hole before the stoning. The Islamic administration in Kismayo brought the girl to the soccer stadium and when she came out she cried, "I'm not going, I'm not going. Don't kill me, don't kill me." Numerous eye-witnesses say she was forced into a hole, buried up to her neck then pelted with stones by more than 50 men. According to Amnesty International, nurses were sent to check during the stoning whether the victim was still alive. They removed her from the ground and declared that she was'nt dead yet. So, she was replaced in the hole so the stoning could continue.

None of men she accused of rape were arrested.

In more recent news, the Saudi newspaper al-Riyadh is reporting the Saudi National Human Rights Commission has formed a committee to investigate the marriage between a 80 year old man and an 11 year old girl. The girl's father, who is also a cousin to the groom, accepted 85,000 riyals (about $22,000) in dowry. When questioned, the father was quoted as saying, "I don't care about her age. Her health and her body build make her fit for marriage. I also don't think what her mother thinks" (The report indicated mom wasn't too thrilled about the marriage). The girl will join the grooms other 3 wives.

But of course your thinking that REAL Muslims don't condone this practice. Read the Qur'an.

If you believe that this type of Islam is only in Eastern counties, and the West has little to fear from contemporary Islam:

Never happen in America, right? Radical Islamic agendas would never take root in America.

Never assume someone else will stand up for your rights. And never assume it's someone else's responsibility to stand up for those who can't stand up for themselves. A Christian is a follower of Jesus, and truly living a life under the example of Christ means Christian is a verb.
