As I'm sure most of you have already heard, a group of some 15 jihadis invaded the Westgate Mall in Nairobi, Kenya on Saturday, rounded up as many people as they could, released the Muslims and started murdering everyone else. At least count, 59 people had been murdered, 175 wounded, and the jihadis were still holding some 30 hostages
Where is the media coverage? This is Obama's native land -- where is his condemnation of the vicious sharia? His silence is sanction and support.
Of course, the problem is those of us who speak against this savagery. Not the savages. Have Muslim groups held an emergency press conference to denounce jihad and the Islamic texts and teachings that command these monstrous mass slaughters? 
'All Muslims leave... we only want to kill non-Muslims': Gunmen massacre at least 22 in Kenyan shopping mall after releasing anyone who could prove they were Islamic by reciting a prayerDaily Mail, September 21, 2013
  • Security guards wheel out bodies in shopping trolleys from Westlands Shopping Centre
  • Hostages are being held by at least five attackers still in building
  • Upmarket mall is a favourite shopping spot for expats and wealthy Kenyans
  • Police opened fire after gunmen launched attack at midday today
  • Armed gang believed to have been terrorists, police say
  • Kenya Red Cross says at least 22 dead though police not given exact toll
  • Witness says attackers told shoppers non-Muslims were the targets
  • Somali militant group al-Shabaab threatened to attack mall but no one yet claimed responsibility
Gunmen who opened fire at a shopping centre killing at least 25 and injuring dozens more today let muslims go free if they could prove they were Islamic. 
Witnesses caught up in the attack at Westlands Shopping Centre, in the Kenyan capital Nairobi, said anyone who could recite a muslim prayer to their captors was allowed to leave unscathed.
But the attackers turned their guns on anyone who could not prove their Islamic credentials.
Sir Simon Fraser, the Foreign Office's chief civil servant and head of the Diplomatic Service, said on Twitter that Britons had been caught up in the incident.
He posted: '@foreignoffice (The Foreign Office) and @UKinKenya (British High Commission) working hard on Nairobi shooting and hostage crisis to help all involved esp Brits.'
Sky News is reporting that the US State Department has confirmed US citizens are among the casualties.
But US citizens (and Brits) aren't just among the casualties. They're also among the terrorists.

Meanwhile, Israel has gotten involved in the rescue efforts.
"The Israelis have just entered and they are rescuing the hostages and the injured," AFP quoted a security source as saying.
The Jerusalem Post could not confirm the veracity of the report.
Reuters quoted an Israeli security source as saying Israeli advisers were helping Kenya with "negotiating strategy" to help end the siege.
"There are Israeli advisers helping with the negotiating strategy, but no Israelis involved in any imminent storming operation," said the source, who gave no further details and asked not to be identified.
The source said only a "handful" of Israelis, "purely in an advisory role", were on scene at the upscale Westgate shopping center, which has several Israeli-owned outlets and is frequented by expatriates and Kenyans.
An Israeli source in Nairobi said all Israelis who were in the mall at the time of the attack had made it out safely, with the last three rescued overnight.
There were conflicting reports from other security sources in Nairobi about the part Israel was playing.
One Kenyan security source, who asked not to be identified, told Reuters that the Israeli military was involved in the operation, while a private security official also said they were helping comb the mall.
But Kenyan Interior Minister Joseph Ole Lenku insisted it was a national operation, despite offers of foreign support.

Had they not suffered from "Islamophobia" before, I wonder if the affected families do so now.
