American Teacher Executed in Yemen for ‘Proselytizing’

Home - by - March 19, 2012 - 11:30 America/New_York - 11 Comments


An English teacher from the United States was executed in Yemen on his way to work Sunday by an al Qaeda group that accused him of “proselytizing.”

Officials said a motorcycle gunman and an accomplice pulled alongside the vehicle that American Joel Shrun was riding in and opened fire.

Shrun was on his way to work in the city of Taiz at the time of the attack.   He served as deputy director of the Swedish Institute, a language school, and was born in 1983.

The assailants escaped after the shooting, but an al Qaeda-linked group quickly claimed responsibility for the attack.

    Teaching savages can be dangerous. Why we continue to try I’ll never know. Now NASA wants to teach them about space, share our knowledge with the bastards. These are trying times.

    Because Dear Leader says so, that’s how! Now I suggest you shut up and get back to your assigned station. Someone from The Ministry will be checking in on you directly.

    So, according to al qaeda it is “proselytizing” and deserving of execution when a Christian is peacefully engaged in humanitarian work. What do they call what THEY do? Gently (and with much delicacy!), but persuasively, convincing people to convert to or avoid leaving islime? With no consequences of course! Totally up to you! It is okay either way!

    The official response from Baraq Hussein:

    “Mr. Shrun was acting stupidly in a country in which he was a visitor. We apologize for any misrepresentations that he may have made to the good people of Yemen.”

    I’m sorry, but why anybody (civilized human being) would want to spend one millisecond in some shit-hole third world country, especially a moose limb one, is beyond me.

    A teacher? Let them remain in their beloved seventh century.

    So now, according to those filthy islamic goat phuckers, teaching the English language is considered proselytizing.

    This is obvious Faux News lies being propagated by subervise racists!!!

    His O’liness last week declared victory by saying no American has been attacked by Al Q since he became our Dear Ruler. And even kind Muslim posters here at iOTW have been telling us how peaceful Islam is.
