The jihadis are waging war against the rest of the world, but for the most part the attention of Western authorities is focused more on “islamophobia” than it is on jihad terror. And even when the jihadis shout out their intentions, as they did here (“These infidels must be wiped out!”), most authorities look for the root causes of jihad activity in Western misdeeds (colonialism, Israel, etc.) rather than in the Islamic texts and teachings that jihadis invoke to explain and justify their actions. It’s madness.
“Suspected members of Islamic extremist group Al Shabaab shot three Christians to death in northeastern Kenya at 1 a.m. on Friday (Feb. 16), sources said,” Morning Star News, February 19, 2018:
NAIROBI, Kenya (Morning Star News) – Suspected members of Islamic extremist group Al Shabaab shot three Christians to death in northeastern Kenya at 1 a.m. on Friday (Feb. 16), sources said.
Targeting Kenyans who came from other areas to work in predominantly Somali Wajir, some 100 miles from the Somali border, the suspected terrorists from the Somali rebel group entered the sleeping quarters of personnel at Qarsa Primary School and killed two Christian teachers and the wife of one of them, sources told Morning Star News.
After killing Seth Oluoch Odada, his wife Caroline and teacher Kevin Shari, one of the assailants said in the Somali language, “These infidels [non-Muslims] should be wiped out,” a teacher who survived the attack told a worker at Wajir Referral Hospital, the worker told Morning Star News.
The pastor of an area church, undisclosed for security reasons, told Morning Star News that Odada and his wife attended his church.
“We are very concerned about this selective kind of attack on non-locals who are also Christians in this region,” the pastor said. “Our other church members are not safe. Many of the church members, including teachers, have started fleeing the area to their home villages, and some did not attend the church for the Sunday service.”
It was not known if Shari belonged to a church. The bodies of those killed have been transferred to Chiromo Mortuary in Nairobi.
The hospital worker said that after shooting the couple, one of the assailants entered the house Shari shared with the surviving teacher.
The gunman shot at Shari, and the same bullet struck the hand of the survivor, who fell down and pretended to be dead, the hospital source said, adding that the injured man said the shooter wore a mask typical of Al Shabaab militants.
The area pastor said local people believe area residents have joined Al Shabaab.
“I think these are the people who killed the three Christians,” he said….
