Somali Rock Art

Somali culture seems to consist of Islamic lunacy, AK-47 rifles and begging bowls. Andulus radio, run by Somalia's murderous al-Shabab nutter group, has recently awarded AK-47 rifles and hand grenades to children as young as 10 years old as prizes in its Koran-reciting and general knowledge contest. The children were urged to use their weapons to defend Islam (CLICK). Long before the invention of Islam, people in Somalia were creating rock art. Sada Mire (above) escaped Somalia when she was 14 years old. She studied to become an archaeologist and gained a fellowship in the department of art and archaeology at the School of Oriental and African Studies in London. In Somaliland, she has discovered a wealth of ancient rock art. The photo shows her examining some of the rock art she discovered in Dhambalin (title link).
