Jihadis in Kenya, as elsewhere, 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 (they were chanting “takbir,” to which the response is “Allahu akbar”), 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.
“Local Muslims Stone Three Christians to Death During Protest,” International Christian Concern, September 25, 2018:
On September 22, 2018, a family in western Kenya laid one of their kin to rest after he and two other men were attacked by a Muslim mob and stoned to death. Fredrick Mukanda Bahati was a mason in Elwak, Mandera, a town close to the Kenya-Somalia border. He worked in Elwak for six months before his death.
The Muslim residents of Elwak were engaging the police after three suspected al-Shabaab militants were found killed outside of town. In retaliation, the irate protesters turned their anger toward three non-local Christians at the construction site.
A witness, who requested to remain anonymous, told International Christian Concern (ICC), “Fredrick was on top of a new house he was contracted to build. His two assistants were on the ground mixing mortar when the mob arrived in [a] hurry, chanting takbir, takbir, takbir. From a distance, I saw the men hurling construction stones towards Fredrick and his coworkers.”
He continued, “The three managed to flee into a nearby hotel for safety, although they had been badly injured. The Muslims relentlessly followed them up and stoned them to death.”…
Wycliffe Mukanda, Fredrick’s brother, stated, “This is a sad day in our family. We have lost a man who was skilled in construction and loved all of us. He always reminded us to pray and trust God even in difficult times. That is what is keeping us going after losing him. We were expecting to see him before the end of the year but now what we have is the memories, a widow, and two children to take care of.”
He ended with a poignant question that many of us have been asking as these attacks keep recurring in Mandera, “Where were the police to protect [them]?”
