Islamist Rebels Kill Two Somali Lawmakers in Two Consecutive Days



Al Shabaab Bella Naija

Islamist rebels shot and killed Somali lawmaker, Abdiaziiz Isaak Mursal near Mogadishu, Somalia on Tuesday while on his way to work. Another Somali parliamentarian, Isack Mohamed Ali, was also killed on Monday when a bomb hidden in his car exploded.

Al Qaeda-linked terrorist group Al Shabaab, has claimed responsibility for the attacks. The terrorists reportedly told Reuters that the killings were carried out to as a message to Western-backed Somali President, Hassan Sheikh Mohamud. These attacks have taken place while the President wraps up a 3-day security conference on improving security in the country. 

“This proves that they cannot and will never do anything about security … more serious killings are on the way,” said Al Shabaab’s military spokesman, Sheikh Abdiasis Abu Musab.

    I think it’s high time Muslims stood up against terrorism, since they claim terrorist are not real Muslims. They should speak up against it; in mosques and through whatever medium available. Sensitize their youths esp. the illiterate ones, on the ills of joining these terrorist groups, teach them that this was not Mohammed intended. This issue is getting out of hand abeg. Wasting innocents lives in the name of a holy war that no one sent you to fight.

      I tire O. I know all of this is the result of misunderstanding or deliberately misinterpreting Islamic doctrine, but the silence is not helping.

    Most of these problems started from the childhood by making some people believe that education is forbidden (Boko Haram) while Muhammad (p.b.u.h) himself said in one of his teachings that “seek knowledge even as far as China” which was an affirmation that education is very paramount to any society. If truly education is forbidden, why there are so many Sciences in the Quran? if you take a look at the background of those people joining terrorism, they are the people that was once told all these lies but the messenger of those lies will send their own children abroad to gain western education while people at home are just going thru the Islamic teachings which is not bad as well but they tends to be brainwashed by mixing lies with truth.

    Most of the war being fought by Muhammad then was even a self-defense, he even ran away from Mekkah (birth city) to Medinnah when those idol worshipers in Mekkah was feeling reluctant to suppress to his calling (oneness of God), they still went to Medinnah to fight against him and he commanded his troops not to kill children and female in any battle.

    There were so many Jews and Christians living in harmony with Muslims in Mekkah then but they must obey the law of the land . Some of the Jews even reverted to Islam bcos there was a day one Jew and a Muslim man brought a case to his chamber and the Jew man won the case, he was surprised that Muhammad was not favour his Muslim brother.

    Quran 5:32 …. Whoever saves a life it is as if that person has saved all of humankind.
    Whoever kills a person it is as if that person killed all of humankind.
