Justice was served Sunday, per AP, that is, according to Islamic sentencing.

One Muslim male was put in a pit, dirt up to his chin, then stoned in the head till dead. Stone sizes are stipulated by the Koran—not too big as to bring quick end. Allah be praised.

A second Muslim male was shot to death. Allah be praised.

The first had committed adultery, according to his accusers.

The second had committed murder, according to his accusers.

“Islamic courts run by radical clerics have ordered executions, floggings and amputations.

“In some areas militants have also banned movies, musical telephone ringtones, dancing at weddings and playing or watching soccer.
