Murder Okay, Watching Soccer, Not So Much

Here’s just another classic example of the utter depravity that is the sick and twisted religion of Islam.

Somali militants threaten World Cup TV viewers

Somali militants have threatened football fans they will be publicly flogged – or worse – if they are caught watching the World Cup on TV.

Gangs of Islamists are reported to be patrolling the areas they control looking for people watching games.

Dedicated fans are watching matches in secret, or in the few areas controlled by government forces.

On Saturday militants killed two people as they attacked a house where people were watching a game.

Militant group Hizbul-Islam also arrested 10 others at the house north-east of the capital Mogadishu where fans were watching the game between Argentina and Nigeria.

‘Mad men’

A spokesman for the group, Sheikh Mohamed Abdi Aros said the rest of Somalia should respect their ban on the World Cup.

“We are warning all the youth of Somalia not to dare watch these World Cup matches. It is a waste of money and time and they will not benefit anything or get any experience by watching mad men jumping up and down,” he said.

Okay then, watching soccer is a waste of money and time, but hunting down and murdering soccer fans, that’s Islamic productivity. Yeah, that make sense. Then again, Muslims kill people over cartoons in the name of Allah. Islam is an intrinsically violent religion, so it’s not really a surprise.

/the only marginally redeeming social value in preventing soccer fans from watching the World Cup is that it saves them from the incessant vuvuzela torture
