Valentines Day Al Shabab Style (Beheading)

shabaab_behead_hostage.jpgThe video below fold is a beheading by the Somali terrorist group al Shabab. The mans sin was converting to Christianity.

Warning....graphic.

Update: Some are upset with me for posting this video on Valentines Day. I say, don't watch it. All I am doing is showing reality in this day and time. In a pretend world this wouldn't happen, this isn't pretend and it happens. Live with it.

Update II: I won't link to site where I saw this video as the site is pro-terrorist. Anonymous in comments thought I had seen it at Terror Free Somalia. The site is well worth the link, keep up the good fight.

UPDATE III by Rusty: I can verify that the site where we found the video embedded is pro-Shabaab. It is not clear if the person who uploaded it to Google was doing it out of love or hate for Shabaab.

He titles the video "Al-Shabaab oo Gowracaya Nin Soomaali Ah" and describes it as "War waxaan diina ma lahan ee waa mooryaanta Casriga". Clearly, these are the al Qaeda linked Shabaab.

What the crime of the victim is alleged to be, I've no idea. Perhaps Stable Hand saw some commentary on it elsewhere. I don't speak Somali, so make of it what you will. [Update VI: Link to article...Stable Hand]

[UPDATE within an update] I traced the videos origin to the official website of the Shabaab. It dates from September of last year. So, there it is. This is definitely Shabaab.

UPDATE: The original video we had posted from Google was taken down. But I found another version of it. It was posted on what appears to be an anti-Shabaab Somali website. I'll leave the original embed below it, just in case it goes active again.
