Tanzanian authorities have arrested six people, including four from Saudi Arabia, in connection with an attack that killed two people and injured 30 others during a mass at a church, officials say.

Gotta love that Obama and his brethren’s outreach program.
Makes me sick that we have a Ghazi in OUR White House.

The President of Tanzania wasted no time in calling this a terrorist act. Could we please trade Presidents? I know ours is Kenyan, but they’re next-door neighbors and that’s close enough/s;)
Four Saudis engaging in terrorism? Must be a misprint, they were Amish.
So where any named Abdulla Rahman Al Harbi? /s
Shocked, just SHOCKED I tell y’all!
That’s the saudis for ya, spreading peace and love everywhere they go....
Arusha is a lovely hamlet town, been there. It has a wonderful meerschaum mine from which lovely polished white pipes are made.It is also home to the Calabash model of pipe made famous by the character Sherlock Holmes.
Why these Saudi effing camel humpers would want to kill the peaceful black Christians living there is beyond me.ALL Saudi nationals should be banned from entry to every nation in which they perpetrate terror.
Holder is already on his way to Tanzania to help
the Saudis with everything the criminal DO”J” has
to help terrorists worldwide. The Obama-Holder Way.
I saw a small report about this (in the WSJ) and I thought at the time that this was the first time I’d seen anything about Tanzania.
The Muslims won’t rest until all of Africa is in flames and Islamic. The Arabs in particular have a long tradition of coming down there for this purpose. Or to capture slaves.
What’s it going to take for the world to see that Islam and civilization are incompatible?
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Many thanks for those informative details about Arusha. It sounds like a wonderful, peaceful community - now set upon by extremists.
