The current crisis in Somalia and the ongoing barbarity of radical Sunni Islam is clear for all to see. However, very little is being done to contain this barbarity and the outside world is mainly silent or in political correct mode? Therefore, even when details are given about the ongoing brutality in Somalia, the real reasons are being glossed over or ignored.
Given this, it is essential to look at the real reasons behind stoning people to death for adultery, killing Muslims who have converted to Christianity, chopping hands and feet off for stealing, and so forth.
The truth is rather simple, however, the political correct brigade, radical Islamists, anti-Westerners, apologists, and others; desire to cover up the obvious reason. Yes, stoning people to death for adultery, killing Muslim converts to Christianity, and other draconian measures, are all based on the teachings of Islam itself.
Of course, for the politically astute or because of the reality on the ground, it is abundantly clear that my findings are not so enlightening because it is obvious and many people have stated this before. Yet mainstream media, on the whole, does dilute the real factors and invalid excuses are often given or the dreaded political correct brigade wins out again and the same applies to apologists who always like to gloss over reality.
Therefore, let us look at the ongoing reality of Somalia and then equate this with the reality of modern day Saudi Arabia. After all, it is abundantly clear that people are being stoned to death in Somalia and converts to Christianity are being killed in the name of Islam.
Mohammed stated the following:
“O Prophet! Make war against the unbelievers [all non-Muslims] and the hypocrites and be merciless against them. Their home is hell, an evil refuge indeed.” (Koran, 9:73)
“As for the thief, both male and female, cut off their hands. It is the reward of their own deeds, an exemplary punishment from Allah. Allah is Mighty, Wise.” (Koran 5:38)
While the Hadith 9:4 says “Wherever you find infidels kill them; for whoever kills them shall have reward on the Day of Resurrection.”
Therefore, in 2009 Christians have been burnt alive in Pakistan and persecution is ongoing; in Somalia converts from Islam have been beheaded and all Christians face the brutality of Al-Shabab which is yet another militant Sunni Islamic organization; while in Nigeria radical Sunni Islamists have beheaded Christian pastors for refusing to convert to Islam; and of course Christians in Iraq face persecution and death and the same applies to other non-Muslim minorities in this nation.
Al-Shabab, a radical Sunni Islamic organization in Somalia, wants to go back to “year Mohammed” and because of this they are implementing barbaric laws which are based on the Koran, the Hadiths, and Islamic Sharia law.
Therefore, in modern day Somalia it is open season for killing Christians, killing Muslim apostates, and stoning people to death for adultery. Other draconian measures have also been implemented and chopping the hands off small time criminals is deemed to be a religious duty. Also, strict dress codes are getting even stricter and women have to remain in the shadows.
If we turn to the land of Saudi Arabia it is abundantly clear that Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, and all other faiths, are forbidden in the land of Mecca and Medina. At the same time, apostates face the death penalty and women have severe restrictions put on them. Even Shia Muslims are deemed to be un-Islamic and countless numbers of terrorists have left this nation in order to spread terrorism and persecution, and of course many internal organizations or individuals have funded terrorist projects or built schools of hate.
If you want to find the reasons for killing converts from Islam, stoning people to death for adultery, killing homosexuals, chopping hands off, and other brutal Islamic methods; then just focus on the teachings of Mohammed.
After all, Islamists follow the sayings of Mohammed and in Hadith 9:4 Mohammed stated “Wherever you find infidels kill them; for whoever kills them shall have reward on the Day of Resurrection.” Mohammed also stated in Hadith 9:50, 57 that “No umma (a member of the Muslim community) should be killed for killing a kafir (an infidel) … Whoever changes his Islamic religion, kill him.”
The 7th century Islamic jihad against diversity is ongoing and the rule of terror can be seen by the recent stoning to death of a female in Somalia on the grounds of adultery, and of course this was done by people who follow the teachings of Mohammed.
