The winners of a quiz organised by Somali Islamists have been given weapons and ammunition as prizes.
Prizes included AK-47 assault rifles, hand grenades and an anti-tank mine.
The quiz ran during the holy Muslim month of Ramadan in the port city of Kismayo, and included questions about the Koran and Somali geography…
“The reason the young men were rewarded with weapons is to encourage them to participate in the ongoing holy war against the enemies of Allah in Somalia,” AFP news agency quoted al-Shabab’s Sheikh Abdullahi Alhaq as saying at the prize-giving ceremony.
The winning team, from the city’s Farjano district, reportedly won a rifle, two grenades, a landmine and office supplies worth $1,000.
But the runners-up did not go home empty-handed, taking away an AK-47 and bullets.
Has the Republikan Party considered doing this for best 19th Century slogan while waving tea bags?

Why not export the Christian right-wingers to Somalia and let them fight with these nutters on whose holy book correctly depicts God and his will. Make it a reality show for the rest of us…
I like that idea. In Hi-Def I hope.
Damn it !!! I like the way you think!
I would watch it.
On a big screen in HD?
There’s nothing like a religious nutter being blown away [NSFW] in HD…
Somali quiz winners receive, guns, ammo, landmines
As Mrs. Bakerman from the old Bob Newhart Show would say, “Isn’t that nice!”
“…and office supplies worth $1,000.”
For some strange reason I find myself far more curious about the office supplies than the rather mundane ordnance.
Red Swingline Staplers goes for $1,000 in Somalia… 😉
The staples are handmade from bomb shrapnel.
On the backside of the package: Can be used on both paper and humans…
