If you don't pray... you'll be beheaded

I almost fell off my chair when I read this. THIS IS REAL!!!

Yes... If you don't pray five times a day in a southern Somalia town you will be beheaded. An official said that the edict will be implemented in three days. Shops, tea houses and other public places in Bulo Burto, about 200 kilometers (124 miles) northeast of the capital, Mogadishu, should be closed during prayer time and no one should be on the streets, said Sheik Hussein Barre Rage, the chairman of the town's Islamic court. His court is part of a network backed by armed militiamen that has taken control of much of southern Somalia in recent months.

Sheik Hussein Barre Rage... FUCK YOU.

Those who do not follow the prayer edict after three days have elapsed, "will definitely be beheaded according to Islamic law," Rage told The Associated Press by phone. "As Muslims we should practice Islam fully, not in part, and that is what our religion enjoins us to do." He said the edict, which covered only Bulo Burto, was being announced over loudspeakers throughout the town. Some seriously mad things have been happening in Somalia recently such as: public executions, floggings of people convicted of smoking tobacco, bans on women swimming in public beaches and on the sale and chewing of khat. BTW, I tried khat once. It is good stuff and should never be banned.
