Somalia, where soccer is a capital offence.

When you read stories like this you realize just how screwy radical Islamists are. Most Muslims I have met are big soccer nuts, but the very devout ones see it as a distraction from their submission to Allah. Therefore anyone who enjoys soccer (or pretty much anything else outside of the mosque) is deemed to be unworthy. I wish Somalia could get it’s act together, I suspect for that to happen it will have to break up into smaller bits such as Somaliland. Of course the UN and others don’t want that to happen, as the status quo suits them. Current polices are not working, let them divide up the land, some people will still suffer badly, but other parts might start getting their act together and have some sense of stability.
