Kenya mall attack: Death toll rises to 68
CNN ^ | Sept 22, 2013 | Faith Karimi, Steve Almasy and Lillian Leposo, CNN

Posted on 09/22/2013 11:28:27 AM PDT by Innovative

Sixty-eight dead. At least 175 injured. About 30 hostages still inside, as well as perhaps a dozen gunmen.

Those are the grim numbers, more than a day after Islamist attackers stormed an upscale Nairobi mall on Saturday, spraying bullets and holding shoppers captive.

The tense standoff continued into Sunday night, with sporadic gunfire heard through the day and at least one explosion.

I'm assuming there is a Muslim neighborhood somewhat in the area ... why not napalm it. Then napalm it again?

Just because.

“Coming to a suburb near you.

Just in time for the holidays.”

It may well happen — there seem to be lots of AlShabaab/Al Qaeda terrorists in the US also.

NY Rep. King: Al-Shabab Recruited in US

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3069830/posts

“A member of the House Homeland Security Committee says the al-Qaida affiliated group behind the deadly attack on an upscale shopping mall in Kenya recruited up to 50 people from Somali American communities in the U.S.”

...and how many more that we don’t know about?...

I’m surprised CNN actually identified them as Islamist. I figured they would be referred to as teens, or flash mobbers.

Sounds much like another Mumbai-style group terror attack. Mumbai was on 26 November of 2008, almost 5 years, coincidental?

Remember, the attacker can look at many targets and select time and place of the attack and concentrate his forces for that occasion. The defenders must monitor all targets, not be distracted or get bored and respond instantly wherever and whenever the attack comes.

Shopping areas, malls, transportation hubs and sporting venues are security nightmares all over the world!

My daughters 11th grade history book describes the terrorists of 9/11 as “Arabs”. Never a word about “Muslims” and never referred to as “terrorists”. Thank goodness my daughter knows better.

Gunmen shot anyone who could not recite an Islamic prayer in the #Westgate shopping mall attack

In one of today's DailyMail articles, an eyewitness said they lined up around 40 people and asked them Islam questions. The question he witnessed was what was the name of Mohammed's mother. The male witness was hiding with two wounded women under a car.

I learned about the Dutch resistance fighters during WWII; to determine if German captives were pretending to be Dutch because the languages are similar, they would point to a map of Holland and ask the suspected Germans to read aloud the name of a particular towns such as Schevenigen, because their pronunciation is so unique to the Dutch language.

REVELATION 20:4
I saw thrones on which were seated those who had been given authority to judge. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony about Jesus and because of the word of God. They had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

Obama’s cousin, Odinga has some potential connections here:

http://archive.org/details/BarackObamasCousinRailaOdinga-AgreementForIslamicShariaLaw

This is the infamous agreement (”Memorandum of Understanding”)that Barack Obama’s cousin made with Islamic Supremacists in Kenya, promising to suppress Christianity, and to establish Sharia (Islamic) law, if elected. Barack Obama assisted his cousin Odinga in this attempt to get elected, evidently knowing about this relationship with Kenyan Muslims. After Odinga lost the elections, and violence broke out against Kenyan Christians, Obama continued to assist Odinga, this time, in attempts to circumvent the election results.

More Muslim Connection in Kenya.

1997 Blackwater USA[edit source | editbeta]
Erik Prince, Blackwater founderBlackwater USA was formed in 1997, by Erik Prince in North Carolina, to provide training support to military and law enforcement organizations. In explaining Blackwater’s purpose, Prince stated that ‘‘We are trying to do for the national security apparatus what FedEx did for the Postal Service.’’[7] After serving SEAL and SWAT teams, Blackwater USA received its first government contract after the bombing of the USS Cole off of the coast of Yemen in October 2000. After winning the bid on the contract, Blackwater trained over 100,000 sailors.[8]

The women will save U.S.

If enough women are armed....a mall would be invincible.

A simple democratic process involving social groups in conflict....no subjugation by any violent group can occur when the majority is armed.

Yes some are spastic and irrational...some are socialized all their lives to get what they want through extreme and irresponsible emotional display. However the Majority that I have had experience with...after training are MORE realistic and thoughtful than males when they carry.
None of This would have happened if one in five women were armed in the mall.

In mexico right now along the boarder its armed women who support the last vestiges of civility.

I think all the rational women should be armed.
If they were islam would not exist in this form today.
I hate to say it but Islam is a male disease.Equality is like antibiotic.

I think...:)

Coming to a suburb near you. Just in time for the holidays.

I fear that this may just be the year. Such an attack abroad serves as a trial exercise (see what goes right/wrong).

The 9-11 attack was preceded by an earlier attack on the WTC (which was also designed to topple the building onto surrounding real estate). There were also earlier attacks on US interests.

The fruit of the boom panty bomber was on a Christmas flight.

The Boston bombers struck on Patriot's Day. Terrorists attacked on 9-11-2012 in Benghazi.

Dates mean things to them. And this administration has no spine.

I must agree. All the cult-like religions of the world feature men getting lots of sex -- with multiple wives, with children, with temple prostitutes or in the afterlife. Christ held women up as equals and treated them with respect.
