Gunmen stormed a crowded shopping mall frequented by Westerners on Saturday in the Kenyan capital of Nairobi, a brazen midday attack that has killed as many as 15 people.

A witness said that gunmen armed with AK-47s and grenades told Muslims to stand up and leave and that non-Muslims would be targeted, according to The Associated Press.

At least 15 people have been killed in the assault, the Kenya Red Cross estimated, though Kenyan police and government officials have not released numbers of casualties.

  1. This is what happens when you live where there is massive gun control, mass shootings for a vast number of reasons. The Moslems use to do this in Israel until they discovered that the Israelis carry handguns and shoot back.

  2. When Lee Rigby was killed on the direct instruction of the Koran,The UK Prime Minister David Cameron said: “There is nothing in Islam that justifies this truly dreadful act. … Terrorism that has taken more Muslim lives than any other religion….”

    So this isolated incident had nothing to do with Islam.

    Socialism -The Compassion of the Attached, as opposed to Buddhism’s Compassion of the Detached, as Islam walks straight up the middle on their blind sides. Because the deep-seated hatred for the Mother of Life so astoundingly unbelievable, and open, while there’s is alluded to by over-feeding or under-feeding, so women’s lives are miserable and unvalued in the home, that they imagine Islam’s not there, so it will go away. Islam is very truthful, what you read on the tin is what you get inside, as every child kicked by their shrouded mothers learns the score exactly.

    Nato troops killed in Afghanistan (BBC, Sept 21, 2013)
    A man wearing a uniform of the Afghan security forces has killed three Nato troops in the east of the country, the coalition says.

    No group has said it carried out the killing, but similar “insider” attacks have been used the Taliban as a way of getting close to foreign targets.

    More than 100 Nato soldiers have been killed in such attacks since 2007.

    A rise in insider attacks last year eroded trust between Nato troops and their Afghan allies.

    It also raised questions about what will happen when international forces pull out of the country…”

  5. Al Shabaab tweets :

    The Mujahideen entered #Westgate Mall today at around noon and are still inside the mall, fighting the #Kenyan Kuffar inside their own turf

    What Kenyans are witnessing at #Westgate is retributive justice for crimes committed by their military, albeit largely miniscule in nature

    Only Kuffar were singled out for this attack. All Muslims inside #Westgate were escorted out by the Mujahideen before beginning the attack

    HSM Press has just made contact with the Mujahideen inside #Westgate Mall. They are still fighting and still strong. Stay tuned!

    They Kenyan govt is pleading with our Mujahideen inside the mall for negotiations. There will be no negotiations whatsoever at #Westgate

  6. It is coming here.

    Of you want to terrorize and raise your status among terrorists group and sovereign countries, then you have to attack new countries or previously safe countries.

    Attacking the Nairobi mall for the 5th tome just won;t capture the same headlines. it won’t be news.
    There fore they will have to do something different lie attack a western mall.

    Which is my problem with Ifti Ahmad. they’ll claim they don’t hear crap at their mosque or other mosques in their region. They are either part of the See no evil, hear no evil, I speak n evil crowd or they are approving of the advancement of their religion by violent means.

  7. Martin post above.

    Those 4 people could take that gunman. Yes people are going to die in the attempt, but people are going to die if they do not do anything.
