When the government officials themselves, starting from the very top, along with the country's police force and the army, are corrupt to the core ... what do you expect to happen in such countries? I wish those victimized in these countries had at least the money needed to buy firearms to defend themselves and their families. The sad truth is that, that the govts of such corrupt countries ... Nigeria and Somalia are two more from the long list of corrupt nations of Africa, do their best to keep the masses poor and ignorant because it serves their purpose of making untold amounts of money for themselves.
Besides the disgusting corruption in the African countries, the recent rise of Muslim terrorist groups in these countries is because the police force, the army and the government bodies themselves are full of Muslim supporters of the terrorist groups. It's what is destroying these countries from the inside.... just like how it will happen when the Western countries come to those kind of percentages within our governments and security forces. Make no mistake about that.
....Kenya Massacre: Somali Extremists Targeting Christians Kill Dozens at Resort.
Dozens of extremists attacked a Kenyan coastal town for hours, killing those who weren't Muslim and those who didn't know the Somali language, officials and witnesses said Monday. At least 48 people were killed and two hotels were set on fire.....
....Like the gunmen who attacked Nairobi's Westgate Mall last year, the Mpeketoni attackers gave life-or-death religious assessment, a witness said, killing those who were not Muslim.
"They came to our house at around 8 p.m. and asked us in Swahili whether we were Muslims. My husband told them we were Christians and they shot him in the head and chest," said Anne Gathigi.....
Another resident, John Waweru, said his two brothers were killed because the attackers did not like that the brothers did not speak Somali.
"My brothers who stay next door to me were killed as I watched. I was peeping from my window and I clearly heard them speak to my brothers in Somali and it seems since my brothers did not meet their expectations, they sprayed them with bullets and moved on," said Waweru......
As the operational picture of the Mpeketoni attack that occurred in the night of 15th June 2014, addition two bodies were recovered on 19th June 2014 near Witu, bringing the death toll to 60. The bodies of the victims have been preserved at the Mpeketoni sub county hospital.
Two Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camps in Kitale-Mavuno area of Poromoko and at Poromoko
centre with 506 and 100 households respectively continue to receive relief aid from Government, the Kenya Red Cross and well wishers. ........
.....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............
....Two nights of terror attacks on Kenya’s coast on June 15th and 16th left at least 65 people dead, prompting the Shabab, a Somali militia of extreme Islamists, to boast that it had turned the country into a “war zone”. The killings mark a change of gear. Previously the group has mainly committed sporadic acts of cross-border terror. Its latest massacres come closer to resembling a domestic insurgency. Yet Kenya’s president, Uhuru Kenyatta, seems to be blaming his political opponents at home for encouraging the violence........
