Islamic Militants in Somalia Murder Christian Leader

NAIROBI, Kenya (Compass Direct News) – Islamic extremists shot the leader of an underground church to death outside the capital city of Somalia this month and have threatened to kill his wife, his tearful widow told Compass.

Having learned that he had left Islam to become a Christian, Somali militants from the Islamic extremist al Shabaab murdered 41-year-old Mohammed Ahmed Ali at about noon on Jan. 1, Amina Ibrahim Hassan said.

He was killed sometime after leaving his home in Hodan, on the outskirts of Mogadishu, she said. She and other family members were not immediately aware that he had been killed.

“We waited for him that day, but he did not turn up,” said Hassan, who has since fled to Nairobi. “The following day, on Jan. 2, I was informed by the fellowship that my husband had been killed.”

I wonder when moderate Muslims will start condemning such hideous crimes.

  1. what about muslims organize themselves and obliterate their own terrorists? that would be a sign of normality! as long as muslim countries encourage terrorism and the western powers give water and food to somali muslim pirats, insead of capturing them, things will not change. the west made itself powerless and it is nicknemad “christan” by muslims. that’s an invitatin to rob, kill and destroy.
