A Defending Crusader…

The best defense is to be good and offensive…or something like that.

Persecution of the Day

Posted by Godefroi on July 29, 2008

From International Christian Concern.

Islamic extremists shot and killed a Muslim convert to Christianity on July 10, 2008 in Afgyoye, a town 18 miles away from Mogadishu, Somalia’s capital. The victim’s name was Sayid Ali Sheik Luqman Hussein, and he was 28 years old.

On Tuesday, July 8, two Muslim men approached Mr. Hussein and asked him if he faces Mecca when he prays (Mohammed instructed his followers to face the city of Mecca when they pray). Hussein told them that as a Christian, he does not have to face a specific direction to pray because God is omnipresent.  

The two Muslim men returned on July 10th armed with an AK-47 assault rifle and a semi-automatic handgun and shot Hussein to death.

Hussein’s wife went into premature labor and delivered a stillborn baby upon hearing of her husband’s murder.
