Images: Al Qaeda in Somalia Behead Businessman for Not Paying "Jihad Tax"

Rahm over at Terror Free Somalia brings us word that al Qaeda's Somali affilliate, the al Shabaab Youth Mujahideen Movement (al Shabaab), have beheaded a man in the streets of Mogadishu.

His crime? Tax evasion. Rahm calls it the "jihad tax."

I don't read Somali, but the images pretty much speak for themselves.

I did a Google search on this and apparently this wasn't the only beheading in Mogadishu in the last couple of days. Another body was found near a market today, but that appears to be a separate incident that the one pictured below.

Strongest possible content warning. We show you these images only to remind you what type of people we are up against in Somalia, Afghanistan, Iraq and everywhere Salaafi Islamists fight for the establishment of Islamic law. We need to Keep in mind that they are an al Qaeda franchise with loyalties to Osama bin Laden and global jihad. Should they ever consolidate power in Somalia it would be a disaster.

Proceed with caution.
