Islamic Courts... Fuck You!

The Islamists controlling much of southern Somalia on Saturday flogged two unmarried teens for romancing in private, an indication that they mean to apply strict Sharia law in the Horn of Africa nation.

In the latest in a series of moves that have fuelled fears of a Taliban-style takeover, a 22-year-old boy and a 19-year-old girl were given 30 lashes each at a public ceremony in northern Mogadishu's Sinaay district after they were caught making out.

Witnesses and court officials said the pair were trailed by Islamic militia and then busted, but it was not made clear whether they were actually having sex.

Last month, the Karan Islamic Court in Mogadishu, which is part of the Islamic Courts Council, fulfilled a sentence on 2 men accused of selling homemade alcohol and 1 man for smoking marijuana.

The 3 men were publicy flogged 40 times each by Islamist militias, who also dumped the alcohol to the ground in front of witnesses.

Islamic courts in Somalia... FUCK YOU.
