Let's all say a "thank you" prayer for the great nations we live in. This doesn't happen here:
A young woman recently stoned to death in Somalia first pleaded for her life, a witness has told the BBC.
"Don't kill me, don't kill me," she said, according to the man who wanted to remain anonymous. A few minutes later, more than 50 men threw stones.
Human rights group Amnesty International says the victim was a 13-year-old girl who had been raped.
Initial reports had said she was a 23-year-old woman who had confessed to adultery before a Sharia court.
Numerous eye-witnesses say she was forced into a hole, buried up to her neck then pelted with stones until she died in front of more than 1,000 people last week.
Her father reported that she had been gang raped by three men. She was only 13.
I have a 13-year-old daughter.
May God have mercy on her soul, and on the African continent.
Now please, if you haven't voted, go vote now. I can't. I'm Canadian. But you can. And vote for the team who is most likely to fight for an end to shari'a law like this and for justice for women overseas. For the sakes of little girls like this one, for whom my heart is bleeding.
