Sad Story from Somalia

All Headline News: Islamists Kill Pregnant Women & Children For Protesting Public Beatings

Harardhere, Somalia (AHN) – Four people have killed and more than 12 others injured as Hizbul Islam militants opened fire in the Haradhere district in Somalia’s Mudug region on Thursday.

The death and injuries occurred when a group of people congregated and protested at a public square where the militants were beating the village’s teenagers.

Pregnant woman and children are among those killed, a witness told a local radio station.

Of course, there’s the ever-necessary question of where the women’s groups are when stories like this come out. So, where were they? Dan Riehl at Riehl World News points out that, for those keeping score, the National Organization for Women was busy endorsing Jerry Brown for California governor less than 24 hours after that lovely tape-recorded message came out in which a Brown staffer called Republican gubernatorial candidate a “whore” (and Brown himself tacitly agreed).

Obviously, those tireless defenders of women’s rights were, uhh, otherwise engaged when they could have commented on the gunning down of pregnant women and children who dared to protest a public beating as prescribed by Islamic law.

Maybe Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar could address the story on The View this week — so long, of course, as those who gunned down the pregnant women and children were properly referred to as anything but “Muslim.”

    Notice that is was Islamic Law that allowed for the beating to begin with. Such peaceful and loving people. I just don’t get how anyone can still claim that extremest have taken over the religion. And this goes back to the article you wrote that claimed this type of “religion” can make a good American.

    I have heard a number of people ask me lately, “Where are the women’s groups in all this?” They referred to the wife raping that the judge said was okay and other “peaceful” aspects of Muslim law. Not all Muslims are radical Islamists, but the radicals don’t wear a sign around their necks to identify who is or who isn’t.

    Should have expected Jeff to get fired up over this one! He holds his wife and child in highest esteem, deservedly (is that a word?). Any hint that his family could be subject to such abuse just lights his fuse. Thanks, Jeff! Women and children need to know that someone stands up for them/us. If Whoopi and Joy weren’t so Progressive, they might be entertaining…instead of disgusting! I do applaud Barbara Walters for her comment after the two women left the set when Bill O’Reilly was a guest the other morning.

    yappp..not all muslims are radical islamists..there are large population of muslims who thought that the terrorism is definitely wrong.actually,public beating or specifically public caning law is bonded to the certain rules and regulations. and there is a reason for that act.Phsychologically, don’t you dare to do the same crime if you had already know the bad consequences you might face.

    I love how all the comments above AUTOMATICALLY blamed Islam. Islamic Law does not state that innocent people should be beaten for protesting. But of course how many Amercians even know anything about Islam other than the constant propaganda you hear on the Media.

    As a Somali, I’m disgusted at the fake concern your showing. Instead of pointing fingers at atrocities done around the world why don’t you Amercians ever look at the lies, mass genocide and atrocities done in YOUR NAME?

    Stop with ignorance and arrogance.Look into your own policies and gov’t instead of focusing on a country your gov”t once attacked.

    Stop decieving yourselfs and stop with the hyprocisy. Somalis do not need your fake sympathy and concern.

    Then, Jasmine, perhaps your country would like to do without all the aid it receives from the American government and people.
