Somalis suffer and die as Islamists ban ‘infidel’ aid and tell Somalis to trust God instead

Drought has caused a national disaster in Somalia. Tens of Thousands of children alone have died or are dying from the famine already. Of the millions of people being hit the hardest by the famine most are in areas controlled by Islamic militant extremists who are forcing inhabitants not to accept 'infidel' aid but to trust in God instead. This on top of war, gangs and corruption and abuses by government soldiers, pro-government militia forces, African peacekeepers and Kenyan police. Only this kind of religion could manage to make a situation as grim as Somalia's worse for it's own people.

So far no one in Islamic leadership of any kind has said a word to condemn this and so as activists we must never let Islamists forget that they have let this level human suffering and misery happen with their silence.
