Somali Islamist hardliners behead 7 people

Islamic slaughter accelerates in Somalia against suspected Christians. This is of par for the course for Muslims who have the Koran and Muhammad as examples. The only way Islam survives is by the use of terror, against non-Muslims and Muslims alike. Without the threats of flogging and death, there is no rational reason to join or stay in Islam.

MOGADISHU (Reuters) – Somalia's hardline Islamist rebels beheaded seven people on Friday for being "Christians" and "spies" in the latest implementation of strict sharia law by the al Qaeda-linked al Shabaab movement, witnesses said.
Though al Shabaab has carried out such punishments before in regions it controls, the beheadings on Friday were thought to be their largest number of executions at one time, Somalis said.

"Al Shabaab told us that they were beheaded for reasons they described as being Christian followers and spies," said one relative, who gave his name only as Aden, after the executions in the south-central town of Baidoa.
The group beheaded three people in the region last month.

The Shabaab, which means "Youth" in Arabic, have vowed to rule the majority Muslim nation by a hardline interpretation of Islamic law. The group has dug up Sufi graves, forced women to wear veils and amputated limbs for theft.
Somalia's government has been unable to wrest control of large tracts of the Horn of Africa nation and the capital from Shabaab militants who continue to wage guerrilla-style attacks on Somali troops and an African Union force there.
