Islamists Slaughter many in Kenya and Christians Singled Out

Islamic jihadists struck Mpeketoni in Kenya and then began to slaughter Christians and non-Somali nationals according to local reports. Of course, in the hate inspired world of radical Sunni Takfiris then slaughtering is second nature. Indeed, recent images in Iraq testify to this just like the countless beheadings in Syria and in other parts of the world that are blighted by Takfiri jihadists. Therefore, innocents were slaughtered in Kenya based on being Christian and non-Somali.
Of course, in Somalia the al-Shabaab (al-Shabab) hunts down all apostates to Christianity and then kills them in heinous ways. In other words, the al-Shabaab and other radical Takfiri Islamists enjoy butchering in the name of their God.
Lee Jay Walker at Modern Tokyo Times says: “It is known that at least 50 individuals were slaughtered in Mpeketoni on the grounds of their religious faith. This sickening reality is all too common because minority Muslim groups like the Shia are often butchered in Iraq, Pakistan and in Syria by the same Takfiri mindsets. Therefore, if Sunni jihadi Islamists can slaughter minority Muslim groups and mainstream Sunni Muslim clerics with glee – then clearly butchering Christians isn’t difficult.”
The BBC reports: “Anne Soy in Mpeketoni says she was told the gunmen shot dead anyone who was unable to recite verses from the Koran.”
Benson Maisori, the local district deputy commissioner, reported to AFP news that: “There were around 50 attackers, heavily armed in three vehicles, and they were flying the Shabab flag. They were shouting in Somali and shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ [God is Great].”
The government of Kenya is clearly worried about religious tensions erupting because the al-Shabaab thrives on chaos and hatred. At the same time, the ethnic angle is another major issue. Similarly, given the loathing of Takfiri jihadists towards indigenous Islam in Somalia then clearly Gulf petrodollars are involved. Therefore, Muslim shrines are also being destroyed by the al-Shabaab in Somalia and this sums up their “year zero Takfiri” mindset.
Other nations throughout the region are blighted by Takfiri terrorism, sectarianism and the role of Gulf petrodollars – irrespective if this is direct government involvement – or based on the wealth of certain individuals and groups throughout the Gulf region. Kenya therefore should be alarmed and the same applies to other regional nations that must work together against this dangerous menace.
Sadly, fresh reports in Kenya highlight another massacre because Reuters reports: “Somali-linked Islamist militants killed at least eight people in a second night of attacks on Kenya’s coast, after a raid on the town of Mpeketoni left at least 50 dead, the Kenya Red Cross and the Somali rebel group said on Tuesday.”
The al-Shabaab is now killing all apostates to Christianity in Somalia while in Kenya it is abundantly clear that Islamist Takfiri groups now seek to spread fear and hatred to various parts of this nation. It goes without saying that it is hoped that Kenya will tackle this “brutal cancer” within society and cut off Gulf petrodollars while tackling Salafi indoctrination.
