Sister Leonella: Murdered by jihadists

There’s a new Associated Press report on the murder of Sister Leonella that confirms the bloody obvious:

An elderly nun who was gunned down at the hospital where she worked in Somalia’s capital was “specifically targeted before being executed by gunmen lying in wait,” a hospital official said Monday.

Willy Huber, regional director of the Austrian-funded hospital where 65-year-old Sister Leonella had worked for four years, said the killing was not random. “She had no chance,” said Huber, who heads the S.O.S. Kinderdorf organization in East Africa. “It was like an execution.”

It was an execution:

…Sister Leonella was shot in the back four times by pistol-wielding attackers as she left the Austrian-run S.O.S. hospital. Her bodyguard also was slain. The two had been walking the 10 meters (30 feet) from the Mogadishu hospital to the sister’s home, where three other nuns were waiting to have lunch with her.

“The gunmen specifically targeted her,” Huber said. “They were waiting for her. As she crossed the road they opened fire. We had no warning of this.”

He spoke after accompanying the Italian nun’s body to Nairobi, Kenya, late Sunday. He said she will be buried in the capital later this week. Three other nuns who also worked at the hospital were pulled out of the Somali capital, and no decision has been made on their return.

Sister Leonella, whose birth name was Rosa Sgorbati, had lived and worked in Kenya and Somalia for 38 years, her family said.

Her last words:

Sister Leonella, 65, muttered the words ‘I forgive, I forgive’ in Italian after being targeted by gunmen in an apparent execution-style killing, father Maloba Wesonga told The Associated Press at the nun’s memorial mass in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi, on Monday.

Those are the words and deeds of a true martyr. God bless her.




Meanwhile, they burn the cross and firebomb Christian churches because they know they have nothing to lose–not their heads, their lives, anything. But if we so much as drop a Koran, joke about Muslims, or draw Mohammed…
