Somali Islamists Hunt Down Christians

09/16/2011 Somalia (OneNewsNow)-Violent persecution against Christians continues in Somalia, and one Christian watchdog group thinks Islamic extremists are to blame. The latest incident took place in Hudur City, where Jonathan Racho of International Christian Concern (ICC) reports that "Islamic radicals kidnapped a Christian brother and then beheaded him. His decapitated body was discovered."

"Members of the Islamic radical group al-Shabaab have made their intentions very clear that they want to get rid of Christians in Somalia," Racho notes. Juma Nuradin Kamil is the latest martyr for Christ in the country over which al-Shabaab holds much control.

"They have been hunting down Christians in the country," the ICC spokesman laments. "And wherever they find Christians, they martyr them. So, it's very, very difficult for Christians to freely worship the Lord in Somalia."

Racho is calling for Christians throughout the world to pray that the Christians in Somalia will remain strong in their faith and emerge victoriously from this situation(Source).

And I will be praying. I will be praying that my Somali brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus make up the majority in Somalia someday.
