Seriously, how messed up is this. Al Shabaab insurgents in Somalia (Al Qaeda’s proxy in the region) are going around flogging teenagers for listening to music and watching videos on their phones. Not to mention the senseless killings and amputations.
Fighting has killed almost 20,000 Somalis since 2007, and though some semblance of order has been restored, the imposed Sharia law has banned even moderate muslims from dancing at weddings, or even playing and watching soccer. If you’re having a bad day today, take a moment and remember just how good you actually do have it. [Reuters]
