Kenya: “Muslims Slit Victims’ Throats And Threw Screaming Hostages From Balconies”

Westgate Kenya yesterday, Westfield London tomorrow.

What right does the politicians in the U.S., U.K. and E.U. have to permit dangerous and hateful immigrants to flood into the country in millions, and then continue denying their hateful religion and behavioral problems and do nothing about it? There are now over 50 million Muslims throughout Europe. The majority of these have entered only within the past 20 years. UK claims their unofficial figure states 5 million Muslims now reside in the country, while official figures (and they alter quite a bit) estimates 4.8% Muslims. Muslims themselves claim their numbers are more than double the official figure because most of them enter via forged passports and ID cards. They have Muslims working within all levels of police, immigration and government, which apparently makes sure even fake passport numbers are made authentic in government books.

In Sweden Muslims are claimed to be around 500,000. And as in England, Muslims themselves claim they are at least twice that number and steadily keep increasing. Again from forged passports, drivers licenses – or bribed documents from other EU countries which then gives them easy and free access to any other nation in the EU.

In the United States the Muslim population quickly rose from 2.7 million to roughly 8-9 million (Obama’s numbers) in less than four years. There is already a continuous increase in terrorism attempts, and specially hidden and creeping terrorism such as poisoning of water sources, derailing of trains, arson, financial jihad, lawfare, indoctrination in Universities and schools for anti-Israel and anti-government sentiments and on and on.

The Kenya devout Muslims (why call them terrorists? They’re DEVOUT Muslims, appeasing their Allah) claim they had taken over 83 hostages and strapped bombs to them. They further claim that the Kenyan police, by throwing explosive into the building caused the collapse of the entire roof – killing all the hostages they had kept there. Witnesses claim the Muslims burnt mattresses which eventually caused the roof to collapse.

Meanwhile in England they are becoming more and more insane: the new Archbishop of Canterbury have asked people to ‘Pray for the Kenya TERRORISTS’! They are truly MAD people. No wonder they are now known as Britanistan.

Shocking new video today revealed the true extent of the destruction caused to the Nairobi shopping centre during the four-day battle between Kenyan forces and Islamic militants.

Aerial footage shows a gaping hole in the mall’s roof after three storeys collapsed when Kenyan soldiers fired rocket-propelled grenades inside the complex, knocking out a support column, a government official said.

The collapse happened on Monday when government troops launched a massive assault on the mall where up to 150 people are thought to have been killed.

During the firefight, hostages reportedly had their throats slashed from ear to ear and were thrown screaming from third-floor balconies as the siege came to a bloody end.

Shell-shocked Kenyan troops said the inside of the Israeli-run mall resembled a ‘scene from a horror movie’ with blood spattered everywhere and dead bodies strewn across the floor.

One soldier told the Daily Mirror: ‘I have seen many bad things, but this will haunt me for the rest of my days.’

The main thrust of the operation began at 6am on Monday when troops and helicopters surrounded the building, but their efforts were hampered by an Al Shabaab sniper who managed to pin them back for nearly 24 hours.

As tear gas was used to try to flush him out, another terrorist reportedly blew himself up. It is believed the resulting fire may have killed dozens of shoppers in a supermarket.

The following day, the soldiers were ordered to adopt a ‘shoot to kill’ policy and launched their final attack on the terror group on the roof of the mall at 5pm.

The mall was retaken about half an hour later.

Between 10 and 15 terrorists are thought to have stormed the mall on Saturday, according to Kenyan officials.

The police said five insurgents were killed in the battle and at least 10 taken into custody.

HOW DID AL SHABAAB SMUGGLE IN SUCH AN ARSENAL OF WEAPONS?

When Kenyan troops launched their assault to retake the mall, they didn’t just face bullets from AK-47 rifles.

They found themselves up against an arsenal of booby-trap explosives, heavy-calibre machine guns, rocket-propelled grenades and tens of thousands of live rounds.

Much of this would very unlikely have been carried into the complex by the Al Shabaab militia, say security sources.

They say they were much more likely to have been smuggled in beforehand.

This adds weight to claims that the group
hired a women’s clothes shop in the mall beforehand to stash their weapons.

It is also thought English-speaking foreign fighters were carefully selected and plans of the huge Westgate mall studied down to the ventilation ducts.

This raises questions about how intelligence agencies failed to pick up on such an elaborately planned attack.

A British defence source told the Independent: ‘This was hardly a spontaneous event, the way these guys were deployed… the fact they could replenish their ammunition shows a lot of pre-planning.’

Video of the roof collapse showed massive carnage with cars littered among the piles of rubble.

Although a government minister said the terrorists had set mattresses on fire, causing the roof to collapse, the video showed such massive destruction that the explanation seemed unlikely to be the full story.

On its Twitter feed, Al Shabaab, the Somali Islamic extremist group which carried out the attack, claimed the Kenyan government assault team carried out ‘a demolition’ of the building.

It accused the Kenyan authorities of using chemical s to subdue the attackers, a claim denied as ‘wild allegations’ by the government.

Meanwhile, fears have been raised of a second attack after at least four militants tried to escape halfway through the siege, but were forced back by Kenyan commandos and U.S. agents.

A security source with detailed knowledge of the siege said the armed terrorists tried to flee from a second-storey roof, according to The Times.

It came on the same day that security services warned of a possible second attack.

FBI experts have now begun fingerprint, DNA and forensic analysis near bodies crushed by rubble in a bullet-scarred mall to help identify victims and the gunmen.

It comes as ten Britons were yesterday thought to have died in the Nairobi mall massacre as it emerged the death toll could double to more than 130.

Six Britons are confirmed dead but investigators believe the bodies of at least another four UK citizens may be trapped under the collapsed Westgate complex.

Scotland Yard detectives were among the first into the remains of the mall yesterday seeking to identify the Britons – and terrorists.

MALL TERROR GROUP KILL TWO POLICE ON SOMALI BORDER

The same extremist group that took over a Nairobi mall attacked a security post near the Somali border Thursday and killed two police officers, while promising the violence would continue until Kenyan troops were withdrawn from Somalia.

The leader of the Somalia-based al-Shabab, Ahmed Godane Shaykh Mukhtar Abu Zubayr, warned the Kenyan public there was no way they could ‘withstand a war of attrition inside your own country,’ in a new statement posted on the Internet late Wednesday.

‘Make your choice today and withdraw all your forces,…’ Godane said.

‘Otherwise be prepared for an abundance of blood that will be spilt in your country, economic downfall and displacement.’

The current death toll is 72 and is likely to climb with uncounted bodies remaining in the wreckage of the mall.

Another 175 people were injured, including more than 60 who remain in hospital. At least 18 foreigners were among those killed.

Al-Shabab said foreigners were a ‘legitimate target’ and confirmed witness accounts that gunmen separated Muslims from other people and let the Muslims go free. The others were gunned down or taken hostage.

‘The Mujahideen carried out a meticulous vetting process at the mall and have taken every possible precaution to separate the Muslims from the Kuffar (disbelievers) before carrying out their attack,’ the group said in an email exchange with The Associated Press.

Witnesses have said gunmen rounded up people, asked questions about Islam that a Muslim would know and told the Muslims to leave the mall. Still, some Muslims were among the victims.

Also among those killed when the militants entered the mall on Saturday, firing assault rifles and throwing grenades, were six Britons and people from France, Canada, the Netherlands, Australia, Peru, India, Ghana, South Africa and China.

Asked if al-Shabab had intended to kill foreigners, the group said ‘our target was to attack the Kenyan government on its soil and any part of the Kenyan territory is a legitimate target … and Kenya should be held responsible for the loss of life, whether foreigners or local’.

Al-Shabab had threatened retaliation against Kenya for sending its troops into Somalia.

The group’s leader, Ahmed Godane, said in a new audio statement that the attack was carried out in retaliation for the West’s support for Kenya’s Somalia invasion and the ‘interest of their oil companies’ – Somalia has untapped energy reserves. More attacks would come, Godane said, if Kenya did not withdraw its troops.

Although Kenya’s foreign minister said earlier that ‘two or three’ American citizens may have been involved in the attack, a Western official said that after checking passport and refugee databases that there was not yet an indication any Americans were involved. Several US cities, notably Minneapolis, host large Somali-American communities.

The violence continued elsewhere yesterday. In the Kenyan town of Wajir, which lies along the border with Somalia, one person was killed and four wounded after a gunman opened fire and threw grenades, the Interior Ministry said.

Interior minister Joseph Ole Lenku said forensic experts from the US, Israel, Britain, Germany and Canada were taking part in trying to reconstruct the scene at the mall. He said results would not be ready for a week.

Mortuaries in Nairobi have been prepared for the last two days for a large influx of bodies still in the mall. Officials have said the shopping centre, which the terrorists held for four days, could hold dozens more bodies.

The government has confirmed 72 total deaths: 61 civilians, six security forces and five attackers. The Red Cross says 71 people remain missing.

At least 12 Muslims are among the civilians killed, according to The Times.

Al-Shabab said the Kenyan government assault team carried out ‘a demolition’ of the building, burying 137 hostages in the debris.

A government spokesman denied the claim and said Kenyan forces were clearing all rooms, firing as they moved and encountering no one.

The al-Shabab claim appeared to refer to the rocket-propelled grenades fired inside the Nakumatt department store, in the incident described by a government official.

In a series of tweets from a Twitter account believed to be genuine, al-Shabab also said that ‘having failed to defeat the mujahideen inside the mall, the Kenyan govt disseminated chemical gases to end the siege’.

Kenyan government spokesman Manoah Esipisu said no chemical weapons were used – including tear gas – and that the collapse of floors in the mall was caused by a fire set by the terrorists.

Mr Lenku said there were no indications that a woman took part in the attack, despite persistent press speculation, and he said officials had not yet confirmed reports that the attackers had rented a shop inside the mall.

In another development, a British man was arrested in Kenya following the terrorist attack, the Foreign Office said.

British officials were ready to provide assistance to the man, the FO said. The man is believed to be in his 30s and a newspaper report said he was arrested on Monday as he tried to board a flight from Nairobi to Turkey with a bruised face and while acting suspiciously.

Kenya says 11 suspects have been arrested in connection with the attack, including at least seven at the airport.

The International Criminal Court in the Hague has said it is prepared to work with Kenya to bring the attackers to justice. ICC prosecutor Fatou Bensouda said while Kenya had primary jurisdiction in the murder of civilians in the mall, the atrocity could also fall under the court’s remit.

The mall attack was the deadliest terrorist attack in Kenya since the 1998 al Qaida truck bombing of the US embassy in Nairobi, which killed more than 200 people.

  1. MOHAMMEDAN CONSTITUTION:

    RELIANCE OF THE TRAVELLER:
    A CLASSIC MANUAL OF ISLAMIC SACRED LAW
    Ahmad ibn Naqib al-Misri

    09.0 JIHAD
    (0: Jihad means to war against non-Muslims, and is etymologically derived from the word mujahada, signifying warfare to establish the religion. And it is the lesser jihad. As for the greater jihad, it is spiritual warfare against the lower self (nafs), which is why the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said as he was
    returning from jihad,

    “We have returned from the lesser jihad to the greater jihad.”

    The scriptural basis for jihad, prior to scholarly consensus (def: b7) is such Koranic
    verses as:

    (1) “Fighting is prescribed for you” (Koran 2:216);
    (2) “Slay them wherever you find them” (Koran 4:89);
    (3) “Fight the idolators utterly” (Koran 9:36);

    and such hadiths as the one related by Bukhari and Muslim that the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said:

    “I have been commanded to fight people until they testify that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and perform the prayer, and pay zakat. If they say it, they have saved their blood and possessions from me, except for the rights ofIslam over them. And their final reckoning is with Allah”;

    and the hadith reported by Muslim,

    “To go forth in the morning or evening to fight in the path of Allah is better than the whole world and everything in it.”

    Details concerning jihad are found in the accounts of the military expeditions of the
    Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace), including his own martial forays and those on which he dispatched others. The former consist of the ones he personally attended, some twenty-seven (others say twenty-nine) of them. He fought in eight of them, and killed only one person with his noble hand, Ubayy ibn Khalaf, at the battle of
    UhuJ. On the latter expeditions he sent others to fight. Himself remaining at Medina, and these were forty-seven in number.)

    THE OBLIGATORY CHARACTER OF JIHAD

    09.1 Jihad is a communal obligation (def: c3.2). When enough people perform it to successfully accomplish it, it is no longer obligatory upon others (0: the evidence for which is the Prophet’s saying (Allah bless him and give him peace), “He who provides the equipment for a soldier in jihad has himself performed jihad,”
    and Allah Most High having said:

    “Those of the believers who are unhurt but sit behind are not equal to those who fight in Allah’s path with their property and lives. Allah has preferred those who fight with their property and lives a whole degree above those who sit behind.
    And to each. Allah has promised great good”
    (Koran 4:95).

    If none of those concerned perform jihad, and it does not happen at all, then everyone who is aware that it is obligatory is guilty of sin, if there was a possibility of having performed it. In the time of the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) jihad was a communal obligation after his emigration (hijra) to Medina. As for subsequent
    times, there are two possible states in respect to non-Muslims.
    The first is when they are in their own countries, in which case jihad (def: 09.8) is a communal obligation, and this is what our author is speaking of when he says, “Jihad is a communal obligation,” meaning upon the Muslims each year.

    The second state is when non-Muslims invade a Muslim country or near to one, in which case jihad is personally obligatory (def: c3.2) upon the inhabitants of that country, who must repel the non-Muslims with whatever they can).

    09.2 jihad is personally obligatory upon all ‘those present in the battle lines (A: and to flee is an enormity (dis: pH)) (0: provided one is able to fight. If unable, because of illness or the death of one’s mount when not able to fight on foot, or because one no longer has a weapon, then one may leave. One may also leave if the opposing non-Muslim army is more than twice the size of the Muslim force).

    09.3 Jihad is also (0: personally) obligatory for everyone (0: able to perform it, male or female, old or young) when the enemy has surrounded the Muslims (0: on every side, having entered our territory, even if the land consists of ruins, wilderness, or mountains, for non-Muslim forces entering Muslim lands is a weighty matter that cannot be ignored, but must be met with effort and struggle to repel them by every possible means.
    All of which is if conditions permit gathering (A: the above-mentioned) people, provisioning them, and readying them for war. If conditions do not permit this, as when the enemy has overrun the Muslims such that they are unable to provision or prepare themselves for war, then whoever is found by a non-Muslim and knows he will be killed if captured is obliged to defend himself in whatever way possible. But if not certain that he will be killed, meaning that he might or might not be, as when he might merely be taken captive, and he knows he will be killed ifhe does not surrender, then he may either surrender or fight. A woman too has a choice between fighting or surrendering if she is certain that she will not be subjected to indecent act if captured. If uncertain that she will
    be safe from such an act, she is obliged to fight, and surrender is not permissible).

    WHO IS OBLIGED TO FIGHT IN JIHAD
    09.4 Those ealled upon (0: to perform jihad when it is a communal obligation) are every able bodied man who has reached puberty and is sane.

    09.5 The following may not fight in jihad:
    (1) Someone in debt, unless his creditor gives him leave:
    (2) or someone with at least one Muslim parent. until they give their permission;
    unless the Muslims are surrounded by the enemy, in which case it is permissible for them to fight without permission.

    09.6 It is offensive to conduet a military expedition against hostile non-Muslims without the caliph’s permission (A: though if there is no caliph (def: 025), no permission is required).

    09.7 Muslims may not seek help from non Muslim allies unless the Muslims are considerably outnumbered and the allies are of goodwill towards the Muslims.

    THE OBJECTIVES OF JIHAD

    o9.R Thc caliph (025) makes war upon Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians (N: provided he has first invited them to enter Islam in faith and practice, and if they will not, then invited them to enter the social order of Islam by paying the non Muslim poll tax (jizya, def: 01 L4)-which is the significance of their paying it, not the money itself-while remaining in their ancestral religions) (0: and the war continues) until they become Muslim or else pay the non-Muslim poll tax (0: in accordance with the word of Allah Most High,
    “Fight those who do not believe in Allah and the Last Day and who forbid not what Allah and His messenger have forbidden-who do not practice the religion of truth, being of those who have been given the Book-until they pay the poll tax out of hand and are humbled” (Koran 9:29), the time and place for which is before the final descent of Jesus (upon whom be peace). After his final coming, nothing but Islam will be accepted from them. for taking the poll tax is only effective until Jesus’ descent (upon him and our Prophet be peace), which is the divinely revealed law of Muhammad, The coming of Jesus does not entail a separate divinely revealed law, for he will rule by the law of Muhammad, As for the Prophet’s saying (Allah bless him and give him peace),

    “I am the last, there will be no prophet after me,” this does not contradict the final coming of Jesus (upon whom be peace), since he will not rule according to the Evangel, but as a follower of our Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace)).

    09.9 The caliph fights all other peoples until they become Muslim (0: because they are not a people with a Book, nor honored as such, and are not permitted to settle with paying the poll tax (iizya») (n: though according to the Hanafi school, peoples of all other religions, even idol worshippers, are permitted to live under the protection of the Islamic state if they either become Muslim or agree to pay the poll tax, the sale exceptions to
    which are apostates from Islam and idol worshippers who are Arabs, neither of whom has any choice but becoming Muslim (al-Hidaya sharh Bidaya al-mubtadi’ (y21). 6.48–49)).
    THE RULES OF WARFARE

    09 .10 It is not permissible (A: in Jihad) to kill women or children unless they are fighting against the Muslims. Nor is it permissible to kill animals, unless they are being ridden into battle against the Muslims, or if killing them will help defeat the enemy. It is permissible to kill old men (0: old man (shaykh) meaning someone more than forty
    years of age) and monks.

    o9.11 It is unlawful to kill a non-Muslim to whom a Muslim has given his guarantee of protection (0: whether the non-Muslim is one or more than one, provided the number is limited, and the Muslim’s protecting them does not harm the Muslims, as when they are spies) provided the protecting Muslim has reached puberty, is sane, and does
    so voluntarily (0: and is not a prisoner of them or a spy).

    09.12 Whoever enters Islam before being captured may not be killed or his property confiscated, or his young children taken captive.

    09.13 When a child or a woman is taken captive, they become slaves by the fact of capture, and the woman’s previous marriage is immediately annulled.

    09.14 When an adult male is taken captive, the caliph (def: 025) considers the interests (0: of Islam and the Muslims) and decides between the prisoner’s death, slavery, release without paying anything, or ransoming himself in exchange for money or for a Muslim captive held by the enemy. If the prisoner becomes a Muslim (0: before the caliph chooses any of the four alternatives) then he may not be killed, and one of the other
    three alternatives is chosen.

    09.15 It is permissible in jihad to cut down the enemy’s trees and destroy their dwellings.

    TRUCES

    09.16 (0: As for truces, the author does not mention them. In Sacred Law truce means a peace treaty with those hostile to Islam, involving a cessation of fighting for a specified period, whether for payment or something else. The scriptural basis for them includes such Koranic verses as:

    (1) “An acquittal from Allah and His messenger…” (Koran 9:1);
    (2) “If they incline towards peace, then incline towards it also” (Koran 8:61);

    as well as the truce which the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) made with Quraysh in the year of Hudaybiya, as related by Bukhari and Muslim.

    Truces are permissible, not obligatory. The only one who may effect a truce is the Muslim ruler of a region (or his representative) with a segment of the non-Muslims of the region, or the caliph (025) (or his representative). When made with other than a portion of the non-Muslims, or when made with all of them, or with all in a particular region such as India or Asia Minor, then only the caliph (or his representative) may effect it, for it is a matter of the gravest consequence because it entails the nonperformance of jihad, whether globally or in a given locality, and our interests must be looked after therein, which is
    why it is best left to the caliph under any circumstances, or to someone he delegates to see to the interests of the various regions.
    There must be some interest served in making a truce other than mere preservation of the
    status quo. Allah Most High says,

    “So do not be fainthearted and call for peace, when it is you who are the uppermost” (Koran 47:35).

    Interests that justify making a truce are such things as Muslim weakness because of lack of numbers or materiel, or the hope of an enemy becoming Muslim, for the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) made a truce in the year Mecca was liberated with Safwan ibn Umayya for four months in hope that he would become Muslim, and he entered Islam before its time was up.
    If the Muslims are weak, a truce may be made for ten years if necessary, for the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) made a truce with Quraysh for that long, as is related by Abu Dawud. It is not permissible to stipulate longer than that, save by means of new truces, each of which does not exceed ten years.
    The rulings of such a truce are inferable from those of the non-Muslim poll tax (def: 011); namely, that when a valid truce has been effected, no harm may be done to non-Muslims until it expires.)

    010.0 .THE SPOILS OF BATTLE

    010.1 A free male Muslim who has reached puberty and is sane is entitled to the spoils of battle when he has participated in a battle to the end of it.
    After personal booty (def: 010.2), the collective spoils of the battle are divided into five parts.
    The first fifth is set aside (dis: 010.3), and the remaining four are distributed, one share to each infantryman and three shares to each cavalryman.
    From these latter four fifths also, a token payment is given at the leader’s discretion to women, children, and non-Muslim participants on the Muslim side.
    A combatant only takes possession of his share of the spoils at the official division. (A: Or he may choose to waive his right to it.)

    010.2 As for personal booty, anyone who. despite resistance, kills one of the enemy or effectively incapacitates him, risking his own life thereby, is entitled to whatever he can take from the enemy, meaning as much as he can take away with him in the battle, such as a mount, clothes, weaponry, money, or other.

    010.3 As for the first fifth that is taken from the spoils, it is divided in turn into five parts, a share each going to:

    (1) the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace), and after his death, to such Islamic
    interests as fortifying defenses on the frontiers, salaries for Islamic judges. muezzins, and the like;
    (2) relatives of the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) of the Bani Hashim and Bani Muttalib clans, each male receiving the share of two females;
    (3) orphans who arc poor;
    (4) those short of money (def: h8.11);
    (5) and travellers needing money (h8.18)

    011.0 NON•MUSLIM SUBJECTS OF THE ISLAMIC STATE (AHL AL-DHIMMA)

    011.1 A formal agreement of protection is made with citizens who are:

    (1) Jews;
    (2) Christians;
    (3) Zoroastrians;
    (4) Samarians and Sabians, if their religions do not respectively contradict the fundamental bases of Judaism and Christianity;
    (5) and those who adhere to the religion of Abraham or one of the other prophets (upon whom be blessings and peace).

    011.2 Such an agreement may not be effected with those who are idol worshippers (dis: o9.9(n:», or those who do not have a Sacred Book or something that could have been a Book. (A: Something that could have been a Book refers to those like the Zoroastrians, who have remnants resembling an ancient Book. As for the psuedoscriptures of cults that have appeared since Islam (n: such as the Sikhs, Baha’is, Mormons, Qadianis, etc.), they neither are nor could be a Book, since the Koran is the final revelation (dis: w4).)

    011.3 Such an agreement is only valid when the subject peoples:

    (a) follow the rules ofIslam (A: those mentioned below (011.5) and those involving public behavior and dress, though in acts of worship and their private lives, the subject communities have their own laws, judges, and courts, enforcing the rules of their own religion among themselves);
    (b) and pay the non-Muslim poll tax Gizya

    THE NON-MUSLIM POLL TAX

    011.4 The minimum non-Muslim poll tax is one dinar (n: 4.235 grams of gold) per person (A: per year). The maximum is whatever both sides agree upon.
    It is collected with leniency and politeness, as are all debts, and is not levied on women, children, or the insane.

    011.5 Such non-Muslim subjects are obliged to comply with Islamic rules that pertain to the safety and indemnity oflife, reputation, and property. In addition, they:
    (1) are penalized for committing adultery or theft, though not for drunkenness;
    (2) are distinguished from Muslims in dress, wearing a wide cloth belt (zunna:r);
    (3) are not greeted with “as-Salamu ‘alaykum” ;
    (4) must keep to the side of the street;
