Meanwhile, in Hell on Earth…

My heart is breaking reading the reports out of Somalia today…

From the New York Times:

MOGADISHU, Somalia — The Shabab Islamist insurgent group, which controls much of southern Somalia, is blocking starving people from fleeing the country and setting up a cantonment camp where it is imprisoning displaced people who were trying to escape Shabab territory.

The group is widely blamed for causing a famine in Somalia by forcing out many Western aid organizations, depriving drought victims of desperately needed food. The situation is growing bleaker by the day, with tens of thousands of Somalis already dead and more than 500,000 children on the brink of starvation.

Half a million kids being starved to death by Islamist warlords.  This is a holocaust, plain and simple, happening right now in 2011.  I don’t even know what to say…
