The reality of Islam in all its hatred can be seen in Afghanistan, the Maldives, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Yemen, and a few other nations, where converts from Islam face the death penalty.  In Somalia, the Sunni Islamic fanatics called the Al-Shabaab (Al-Shabab) have once more killed a convert to Christianity and in true style the soldiers of Islam held down a Christian lady and slit her throat in front of many villagers.  This hatred is clearly based on the teachings of Mohammed because he supported killing apostates and the ongoing Islamic inquisition continues in nations like Somalia.

Religious minorities in so many nations are facing the Islamic sword and often it is difficult to notice the difference between Islamic jihadists who slit the throats and behead innocents in order to appease Allah or national governments which support killing apostates.  After all, the Al-Shabaab in Somalia and the Taliban in Afghanistan support killing apostates and these groups are deemed to be Sunni Islamic fanatics. However, government elites and the legal system also support killing apostates in both Afghanistan and Somalia.  Therefore, it is difficult to notice the difference in some nations because Islamic hatred is being installed on all sides, irrespective if they are Sunni Islamic jihadists or national governments.

The same problem of religious intolerance and discrimination is factual within nations like Egypt where Coptic Christians suffer from institutional discrimination and in Pakistan it is clear that Ahmadiyya Muslims, Christians, Hindus, and Sikhs, reside in fear because of blasphemy laws and mass discrimination.

Therefore, on January 7th in 2011 the holy warriors of Islam captured a Christian mother of four and slaughtered her in front of many villagers in Warbhigly in Somalia.  Like usual the Koran holding individuals will have been shouting Allah Akbar while cutting the throat of Asha Mberwa.

The 36 year old Asha Mberwa was a mother of four and she had committed no crime and had harmed nobody.  However, Mohammed supported the killing of apostates therefore the Al-Shabaab killed the Muslim convert to Christianity in order to appease the Islamic god.

In true Islamic justice an innocent convert to Christianity was killed in cold blood and bystanders were forced to watch while her throat was being cut.  Her death, like so many other Christian martyrs in Somalia, is a witness to the reality of Islamic Sharia law and the brutal teachings of Mohammed.  Therefore, the Islamic inquisition is in full swing in Somalia and Christians are being hunted down and killed.

The reality of modern day Afghanistan and Somalia is the same reality which befell the Buddhists and Hindus of Afghanistan in history.  If we look at the modern Islamic inquisition in Somalia then we can imagine how Buddhism and Hinduism were destroyed in Afghanistan. Hindus also face complete annihilation in modern day Kashmir and the Hindu population in Pakistan is in freefall. The same applies to ongoing persecution in Bangladesh of Buddhists in the Chittagong Hill Tracts and Hindus throughout this nation.

It should also be noted that it is abundantly clear that many members of Al-Shabaab have been brought up in nations like America and the United Kingdom. Therefore, the multi-religious agenda of equality is clearly failing and Muslims who are joining Al-Shabaab in the West appear to have a different Koran to that of the liberals or appeasers of Islam.

However, the Koran of these Muslims is based on the real texts of Islam and they fully understand the Hadiths and all the quotes that justify killing apostates and enforcing Islamic Sharia law.    

Al-Shabaab is being supplied with manpower both internally and externally and the terrorist attack in Uganda is clear evidence that this Islamic movement is intent on spreading Islam and terror to other nations.  Therefore, the Al-Shabaab is clearly causing concerns throughout the region. Also, returning Islamic jihadists to America, the United Kingdom, and other nations, may spread their terrorism and objectives because the Islamic terrorist conveyor belt is ongoing.

Steve Emerson, executive director of The Investigative Project on Terrorism, stated in his article called How al-Shabaab Target Western Youth, that At least six Americans have been killed after going to Somalia to join al-Shabaab. One of those was Shirwa Ahmed, who left Minnesota in December 2007. Ten months later Ahmed blew himself up, apparently becoming the first American citizen to carry out a suicide bombing. Another is Jamal Bana, 20, who in July was reported killed in Somalia. He was studying engineering at two Minneapolis schools when he disappeared in November 2008. Bana’s family said it learned of his fate when a photograph of his body appeared on a website. Burhan Hassan, 17, also disappeared from his Minneapolis home in the fall of 2008 and flew to Somalia to join al-Shabaab. He, too, was shot to death in June.”  

Steve Emerson continues by stating that Thus far, Congress and the intelligence community have been reluctant to conclude that Americans who train with al-Shabaab could return and stage terrorist attacks in the United States or threaten American interests outside the Horn of Africa.” 

“But Mudd, associate executive assistant director of the FBI’s National Security Branch, provided one significant caveat when asked how serious a problem the group is.”

This applies to Philip Mudd commenting that “I would talk in terms of tens of people, which sounds small but it’s significant, because every terrorist is somebody who can potentially throw a grenade into a shopping mall,” he said. Mudd added that information about the number of American recruits for al-Shabaab is “fuzzy” because “[t]here are thousands of people – thousands – going to the Horn of Africa every month. You can go to Kenya to look at game parks, and it’s hard for me to tell you if somebody’s going to a game park or going to Shabaab. So I am sure that there are people out there that we’re missing.”  (IPT NEWS – January 29, 2010)  http://www.investigativeproject.org/

Therefore, the ongoing Islamic inquisition in Somalia is being supported by Muslims who once resided in America, Canada, the United Kingdom, Sweden, and other nations. It is abundantly clear that Muslims or converts to Islam who have joined Al-Shabaab have rejected all notions of religious pluralism, democracy, and liberalism.  Instead, they have joined a Sunni Islamic group which supports killing all converts to Christianity, stoning women to death, chopping hands and feet off, and other crimes against humanity.

Asha Mberwa is the latest Christian martyr in Somalia to be killed by the followers of Islam who follow Islamic Sharia law, the teachings of the Koran and the Hadiths. This innocent Christian lady was killed by Muslims reciting the Koran and her death was slow and with the knowledge that the same Islamic fanatics would try to find her children and indoctrinate them.

It appears that the Christians of Somalia have been abandoned and if we look into the mirror then this Islamic inquisition is the same Islamic inquisition which befell the Buddhists and Hindus of Afghanistan in past history.  Sadly, the annihilation of non-Muslim faiths is still being allowed but this darkness is not only a tragedy and a crime against humanity; it will also encourage Islamic jihadists to spread their hatred to new nations.

Currently it appears that the “light” of Asha Mberwa and religious freedom is being allowed to be defeated by the forces of “Islamic darkness” which desires complete Islamization in Somalia.

SOMALIA and Christian martyrs killed by Muslims

Somalia and Christian Martyrs Killed by Muslims

A Muslim man in Somalia

In some parts of the world it can be very dangerous to convert from Islam to Christianity, or any other faith. Sometimes Christians are killed by radical Muslims or sometimes by the state which sanctions death or prison. Somalia, like some other Muslim majority nations, clearly does not believe in religious freedom and the small Christian population faces an uphill struggle to survive. Therefore, it is essential to remember these martyrs because organizations like Al Qaeda would like to spread this tyranny to every nation. So why is it so dangerous to convert to Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, or any other religion, from Islam?

Firstly, it is essential to remember that religious freedom is denied to other faiths in other parts of the world. For example, religious freedom is severely restricted in Laos and Cambodia. However, religious restrictions in these two nations, and other similar type of nations, is based on political ideology and no single religion is favoured.

Yet when we focus on Afghanistan, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, and other Muslim majority nations it is clear that religious freedom is denied because of Islam itself. These restrictions are multiple, and this applies to either radical Islamic organizations or because of state sanctioned Islamic Sharia Law.

For example in modern day Saudi Arabia the Islamic establishment will not allow one non-Muslim place of worship. Also, conversion from Islam is punishable by death and you are not openly allowed to read about Buddhism, Hinduism, Christianity, or any other non-Muslim faith in Saudi Arabia. These laws and restrictions in Saudi Arabia are based on the Koran, the Hadiths, and Islamic Sharia Law.

Even in more moderate nations like Egypt we see state sanctioned discrimination because the Coptic Christian community is treated unequally. This applies to the very basics of human life. For example a Coptic Christian male will suffer persecution if he wants to marry a Muslim female and in child custody cases involving a Muslim male or Christian female, the child or children will be given to the Muslim male. The reasons for this are simple, it is because Christians are deemed to be inferior to Muslims and this issue threatens all non-Muslims in Sharia Islamic based nations.

Turning back to Somalia it is now “open season” to kill Christian converts from Islam because radical Sunni Islam is on the march. Last year, for example, Sunni Muslim fanatics beheaded Mansuur Mohammed who was a Christian convert. He was beheaded in the most cruel and barbaric way and at the same time Muslims were celebrating by saying Allah Akbar (God is great).

You see, for rational people or people of compassion this act was barbaric and a crime against humanity. However, for the Muslims who did this they are following the Koran and the Hadiths and to these Islamic fanatics it is they who are following Islam to the full.

Therefore, Mansuur Mohammed had done nothing wrong in accordance to Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Sikhism, or any other religion. Yet in accordance with Islam, Mansuur Mohammed was an apostate and despite him caring for humanity, this meant nothing. Given this, Sunni Islamic fanatics held him down and beheaded him while they were praying to Allah.

The last moments of Mansuur Mohammed were full of pain and just like the followers of Osama Bin Laden, the brutal killers video taped this murder, just like so many people who have been killed by fanatics in Iraq. Therefore, just like the complete annihilation of Buddhism in Afghanistan in past history, these Islamic jihadists desire the same outcome.

Sahih Bukhari recorded the sayings of Mohammed and the Hadiths are very important to Muslims. In volume 4, Book 52, Number 260: Ali burnt some people and this news reached Ibn Abbas, who said, “Had I been in his place I would not have burnt them, as the Prophet said, ‘Don’t punish (anybody) with Allah’s Punishment.’ No doubt, I would have killed them, for the Prophet said, ‘IF SOMEBODY (a Muslim) DISCARDS HIS RELIGION, KILL HIM,’”

Therefore, in the eyes of many Muslims, not all, it is moral and right to kill converts from Islam and in nations like Saudi Arabia this is enshrined fully within the codified law of Islamic Sharia Law. Even moderate branches of Islam face persecution, for example the Alevi’s in Turkey and the Ahmadiyya in Pakistan are also victimized by conservative Islam.

Therefore, the martyrdom of Christians in Somalia continues and in recent times we have heard about the brutal killings of innocent Christians in Somalia. The list includes Mansuur Mohammed, David Abdulwahab Mohammed Ali, Prof. Da’ud Hassan Ali, Pastor Hussein Adan Ahmed, Faarah Ibraahim Adaaweh, Pastor Liibaan Ibraahim Hassan, Ahmadey Osman Nur, and Savid Ali Sheik Luqman Hussein.

Sadly the list will continue to grow and the aim of these Islamists is to turn Somalia into a one hundred percent Islamic nation. Not that this will help Somalia because just like in Afghanistan and Pakistan, the same Islamists will then desire to kill and persecute moderate Muslims or kill Muslim minorities, for example many Shia Muslims have been killed in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

I can hear both liberals and Islamic apologists complaining about this article and the implications of what is written. Yet you have one simple truth, and often the truth is very hard to find. However, if any Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, or Sikh, went to Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, or Somalia, and they openly tried to convert people then the consequences would be death.

The Christian martyrs of Somalia died because they loved humanity but all that is evil in humanity killed them because they want to crush religious freedom, liberty, justice, and all that is positive in this world. In modern day Iraq the minority Christian population is trying to survive massive persecution and violence because Islamists, just like in Somalia, desire to destroy and crush all minorities.

Therefore, the Christian martyrs of Somalia are a testimony of the evils of a religion which fears the freedom of religion and free thought. In modern day America and Japan where I reside, people have the freedom to follow any religion or no religion and Muslims are welcome in both nations. However, in modern day Saudi Arabia and Somalia, the sword of Islam is still being used against converts to Christianity, therefore, how much longer can the world remain silent?
