Mali: It’s not funny anymore, not that it ever was…
The Radical Islamists in charge of Northern Mali have just stoned to death a couple guilty of adultery. While I am not a fan of adultery, this kind of iron-aged garbage belongs back in the iron age.
I wonder if the men who pulled the military junta have figured out that by distracting the nation with a civil war, they handed the northern part of the country to the Islamists. Timbuktu has been practicing its own mild form of Islam for a long time, and didn’t need this.
Time for honest elections, and a president who can start a real campaign to bring lawfulness back to the region.
