Sometimes, indeed often, the comments on Jihadwatch are so true. This was in response to the murder of the girl by stoning:
“They replied : ‘We will do what Allah has instructed us.'”
I’ll only believe in Allah when he convinces you guys to all go jump off a cliff and no longer be a threat to humanity.
“David Copeman, Amnesty’s Somalia campaigner, said: ‘This was not justice, nor was it an execution. This child suffered an horrendous death at the behest of the armed opposition groups who currently control Kismayu.
‘This killing is yet another human rights abuse committed by the combatants in Somalia and again demonstrates the importance of international action to investigate and document such abuses, through an international commission of inquiry.’
Amnesty said partway through the stoning nurses checked whether Aisha was still alive. They pulled her body out of the ground to ascertain she was still breathing before the stoning continued.”
Am I reading this correctly? David Copeman calls this incident “another human rights abuse committed by the combatants in Somalia”? How about calling this murder committed by Islamic terrorists?
I never knew there were “stoning nurses” before but what good are they? Obviously they are only there to see if the stoning has been effective or not – they don’t actually help the victim being stoned.
Finally, Copeman’s argument that this “again demonstrates the importance of international action to investigate and document such abuses, through an international commission of inquiry.'” does nobody no good. International commissions of inquiry don’t help the 13-year old girl being stoned. It’s questionable whether international action can ever be taken over such matters and as usual, it would only be left to democratic states to do something about this. The garbage coming from this guy reflects an outdated belief in the usefulness of international institutions – they’re only good for talk and no action.
