Somalia’s rag-tag extension of Al-Qaida, Al-Shabaab, a loose arrangement of idiots who claim to be following the principles of the Quran by attempting to install sharia law in a country that is becoming more westernized than Islamic, have once again inflicted terror on Kenya, a country that has provided shelter for thousands of Somalis at a time of great need, when they (Al-Shabaab) slaughtered their own brothers and sisters in the camouflaged name of Islam.
They have killed an estimated 59 people leaving over 175 wounded, some seriously, in a Kenyan shopping mall where shoppers were going about their business with the consciousness of being safe and free from terror. The Kenyan people are still reeling from the shock of such despicable act of terror inflicted on them for no apparent reason. Al-Shabaab claimed that their action was in retaliation for Kenyan troops fighting in Somalia, and they want them out. A terrible and foolish way to make a statement – as the Kenyan government can only now re-enforce its will to complete its mission and make the region free from such hopeless criminals.
Al-Shabaab have been killing and maiming their own people without achieving any of their objectives. They have destroyed their own country, a place they call home. Food and foreign aid provided by humanitarian organisations have been looted and stolen by Al-Shaabab - a group calling themselves Muslim. They kill at random with no real reason, they attack innocent civilians, women and children, something Islam is strongly against, yet they disgracefully commit such atrocities in the name of Islam.
Summary executions of all those who stand against their barbaric acts have become a daily ritual for a group whose primary aim is to convert Somalia into an Islamic state. They rape their own woman and children as they wreck havoc in their own communities in the name of the religion they claim to practice. There is simply nothing Islamic about Al-Shabaab – Islam is supposed to be a religion of peace – not one of tyrants and terrorists.
Al-Shabaab is simply a disgrace to the Muslim world and represent the ruthless ambition of Al-Qaida – to give Islam a bad name for their own selfish interests – as Al-Qaida engage in the drug-trade, so does Al-Shabaab in piracy, to fund their reckless acts of murder and slaughter of innocent people around the region. The people of Kenya have suffered at the hands of a brutal terror outfit that has no relationship to Islam – only a despicable ideology that resides in their sick mental framework. They have senselessly killed and maimed innocent ones once more, without achieving anything.
This is a lost cause for a terror organisation that is rapidly losing its identity as a Muslim outfit fighting in the name of Allah. They have now become everything true Muslims are not.
