I See Death Squads...

the following statement about Tunisia's current turmoil sent me in to a small panic attack and I'll explain why.
The state of emergency decree bans more than three people from gathering together in the open, and imposes a night-time curfew. Security forces have been authorised to open fire on people not obeying their orders. read more
 that is EXACTLY what happened in El Salvador during the civil war that ended in 1993 (the year I escaped).  These death squads patrolled the streets and anyone caught out after 6 was shot dead.  They also used to drag people out of their homes and shoot them in the streets.  *shudder* The streets were littered with bodies, mothers crying for their fallen children, women raped and executed, children witnessing all of this. YA ALLAH! Ya Allah! Ya Allah!  Not again, ya Allah not again.  Have mercy on my brothers and sisters all over the world. Please grant them affiyah in their affairs and this dunya.

Ya Allah! grant my Tunisian brothers and sisters JUSTICE, please keep them safe from the injustice of the unjust.  Grant them a just ruler. AMEEN.

They say security forces I see death squads.

Wow does this also mean that people can't meet in a home or masjid to pray together? We all need to be making dua'
