Skip to comments.Kenya mall attack: Death toll rises to 68
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.

Coming to a suburb near you.
Just in time for the holidays.
... Gun free suburb
“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
“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!
By the way. Kenya is safe, guns are outlawed in the hands of her citizens.
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.
Is this for Trayvon?
In other news today, U.S. President Obama stepped up his rhetoric in support of the Al Quaida rebels in Syria, pledging that he would do “whatever it takes” to ensure their success in overthrowing the Assad regime. (s)
someday (after USA recovers from its take-over by the Muslim Hros.), the entire world is going to have to tell these Islamicists to knock off the krap or get same beat the hell out of them once and for all
kissing A and all the PC in the world will NOT solve the problem of Muslim aggression, terrorism, violence....
Success copies success. Al Shabaab has Somali supporters in the USA. No good turn goes unpunished.
A chilling tweet I found on rt.com
“our mujahideen are all under 25 years old. 7 of them having completed training in black water facility in north california! #Westgate”
This is a pretty big story. Why does Drudge refuse to report it on his site? Can’t find a trace of it anywhere.
Impossible. Islam is a religion of peace.
Have you and your daughter read “The Harbinger?”
Very interesting parallels with 9/11 and Israeli hisitory.
You’re predicting the future. That’s when it happens here.
There is a thread on the subject — but no real answers:
Vanity: Why Is Drudge NOT Covering Kenya Slaughter?
No but thanks for the heads up! Will look into it.
Residents of St. Cloud, MN, take note.
Bin Laden is dead! Al Qaeda is on the run!
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.
Just like our soldiers would ask “Who won the 1938 World Series?” during WWII.
I have been wracking my brain trying to understand Drudge on this story. Yesterday morning he had the story up briefly- then he took it down. Not a word since then. Bizarre.
I’ve been following it on rt.com, they seem to be the most informative, plus they don’t have to worry about offending Muslims.
“the entire world is going to have to tell these Islamicists to knock off the krap or get same beat the hell out of them once and for all”
End times being fulfilled...
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:
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.
Yes well it is surely clear that alluh is satanic.
hah! Good point.
It’s after 10pm there now. Maybe a night-vision raid..but these bad guys seem well-equipped and may be prepared for night fighting.
Don’t forget how they tortured and raped the hostage children at Beslan.
See #16. Our media sure as heck isn’t going to cover this.
That is strange. I wonder why Drudge doesn’t have it on his site?
You got THAT right!
BHO2 didn’t spend $20+ million dollars of our tax revenues to help Kenya rewrite its national constitution for no reason other than to have another nation to move to and continue raping their treasury.
“...black water facility...”
Does that mean an inland, hidden compound on a lake? Just wondering.
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. 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.
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.
Oh I forgot
Bacon is Good,Dogs are Nice,Women are People.
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.
Islam is a religion of peace, and they’ll murder you to prove it!
Okay, so it’s a Blackwater-like facility; I’ve heard of them. Got it. Thanks.
Apparently, the muzzies have more than one ‘training facility’ here:
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.
