Carrying out the death sentence mandated by Islamic law for those who attempt to convert Muslims away from the faith. From the Telegraph, with thanks to Sr. Soph:
A husband and wife who dedicated their lives to helping African children were murdered in cold blood by Islamic terrorists, an inquest heard yesterday.
Dick and Enid Eyeington were watching television at their home in Somaliland when a terrorist linked to al-Qaeda shot them.
Dick and Enid Eyeington had lived in Africa since marrying in 1963
The couple were considered “infidels” by their attackers, who wrongly believed that they were trying to convert Africans to Christianity.
Four men were involved in the attack in which a gunman wielding an AK47 put the weapon through the living room window and opened fire on Oct 20, 2003.
Mr Eyeington, 62, was shot four times. He was still holding the television remote control when he was found, Westminster coroner’s court heard. Mrs Eyeington, 60, died from a single shot to the head.
And Islam’s honor was saved.
