Somali radio gives away assault rifles in Quran contest

You're not gonna believe what this radio station in Somalia did!
The "Al-Andalus" radio station offered weapons (and cash) as prizes for winners in a Quran memorization contest this past Ramadan. The first place winner got an AK-47 and the equivalent of $700. Second place winner got an AK-47 too, plus the equivalent of $500 in cash. The third place winner, well, he got 2 hand grenades and $400 in cash...The contestants? Children between 10 and 17 years old.

As a reminder to all those that think Arab Muslims would be peaceful if not for that pesky Israel, "Al-Andalus" is what Muslims call southern Spain. They consider it lost territory since they occupied it until Spanish King Ferdinand drove them out in 1492. So, once they drive the Jews into the sea, they will then begin working to get the rest of "their' territory back and the Iberian peninsula will be high on the list.

Re Kafir: Not like us peaceloving Christians who are perfectly happy with our own territory and never go about invading anyone else.
