The BBC reports on a boy killed for making an offhand remark about the Prophet. 

The theological knowledge of the killers is open to doubt: "The four [killers] looked like jihadis but stopped to buy a packet of sunflower seeds. People explained that the truly pious would not eat sunflower seeds because they take so long to shell". Perhaps real jihadis crack their eggs at the other end too.

Are we meant to be supporting the people who eat sunflower seeds or the other ones?
