Christian widow killed four months after husband slain

Islamist militants in Somalia have killed the widow of a Christian who was slain for his faith in December, leaving the couple’s five children orphaned, sources said.

Islamic extremist Al Shabaab rebels shot 42-year-old Fartun Omar to death on April 13 in Buulodbarde, 20 kilometers (12 miles) from Beledweyne, according to Abdi Aziz Suleiman of Radio Shebelle in Beledweyne. The extremists had been searching for her for several months, as they knew that she was a secret Christian like her late husband, Mursal Isse Siad, sources said.

Siad had been receiving death threats for leaving Islam.

...

“A week before she was killed, rumors were flying that the Al Shabaab were looking for her,” one of Omar’s neighbors said.

Due to the threat of persecution, Omar on April 10 decided to leave the central Somalian city of Beledweyne by bus with another neighbor to seek refuge with relatives, the first neighbor said. On reaching Buulobarde, which is controlled by Al Shabaab, militants at a roadblock ordered passengers to disembark and questioned them one by one.

“Unfortunately, she was not cleared by the Al Shabaab,” said the neighbor who accompanied her. “I only heard one of them saying, ‘This is the woman whose husband was killed last year. Do not let her in.’”

...

Somalia’s is close to 100 percent Muslim.

One day, these animals are going to have to face the judgment of the God of the Universe and he's going to be terribly displeased at this event. I wouldn't want to be in their sandals when that day arrives. If it's after the RAPTURE I hope I'm standing right there, watching on the right side of The Father. Actually, I don't because it's going to be a terrible sight to behold and I'll be wanting to get back to the party that will last eternity!

Meanwhile the head of CAIR in the US wouldn’t admit that there is Islamic Jihad in the world.

Tell it to this poor woman and her husband and their orphaned children.

But CAIR doesn’t CARE, does it?

Actually, a far better example can be had in the person of General "Black-Jack" Pershing who rid the Phillippines of Muslim extremism for about 90 years by one act of justice. Snopes has this as "indeterminate" which to my view means "affirmed" given the extreme leftist leanings of snopes.
