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.”
