Islamic miliants have executed two Somali football fans for watching Nigeria play Argentina on Saturday night.
The deaths happened in Central Somali which is under strict Islamic law and forbids anyone in the region from watching World Cup matches
Sheikh Mohamed Abdi Aros, a spokesman for the militants, said that, "We are warning all the youth of Somalia not to dare watch these World Cup matches." He said that the people of Somalia should focus on pursuing jihad and not, "watching mad men jump up and down."
Hizbul Islam had previously invited Osama bin Laden to Somali.

Just for "fun"...here is a quick sampling of some of the news coming from the Religion of Peace today, in addition to the World Cup murders:
"Officials said 138 people were killed and nearly 1,800 wounded since the violence began last week, but an Uzbek community leader said at least 200 Uzbeks had already been buried, and many bodies had not been recovered from charred homes and businesses..."
Al-Qaida-linked militants beheaded three loggers in the Philippines in apparent retaliation for government offensives in the country's south, security officials said Sunday.
Militants last week stormed two Ahmadi prayer halls in Lahore, killing 82 worshippers in gun and grenade attacks. Gunmen later raided the hospital where victims were treated, killing four people in a shootout.
Just a quick sample...
You know, and I know, there are oodles of stories like this one today alone...and every day...week after week...year after year.
So please spare us more of the "but Muslims aren't usually like this" every time a story breaks - yes they are!
