Skip to comments.'All Muslims leave...we only want to kill non-Muslims': Gunmen massacre at least 30 in Kenyan mall

Kenyan police and soldiers have pinned down the remaining gunmen who opened fire at a shopping centre earlier today, killing 30 and leaving at least 50 others injured.
A security source at the scene in the capital Nairobi confirmed moments ago the attackers have been isolated.
The source said: 'The attackers have been isolated and are pinned down in an area on one of the floors - the rest of the mall seems to be secure.'
No-one has claimed responsibility for the attack, but it is looking increasingly likely the Somalia terrorist group al-Shabaab may be responsible.
A statement released through its Twitter account said it warned Kenya to pull its troops out of Somalia.
However, the group has did not take responsibility for the attack.
One witness who was embroiled in the situation claimed that the gunmen told Muslims to stand up and leave and that only non-Muslims would be targeted when they opened fire at the upmarket mall of the Westlands district around midday.
At least two dozen people, wounded and dead, were wheeled out on stretchers and in shopping trolleys by security guards, while others were seen walking out of the building, clutching bloodied clothing around their injuries.
Locals and tourists who were out shopping on the sunny Saturday in Kenya ran screaming from the building and cars were left abandoned as attackers threw grenades and fired AK47s.

Ditto the above. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRR......
Raoul Odinga, what say you of this?
How could this happen when Kenya has VERY STRICT gun-control laws???
Nope. The NRA.
I see the religion of Peace is spreading the love again.
” the group has did not take responsibility for the attack.”
Take no prisoners, be sure there are no survivors.
“I thought gun violence was only caused by the 2nd Amendment.”
Very funny. You nailed it.
Toss in a bar of soap and some deodorant, then mow’em down when come tearing out in terror..
CNN is not my choice news source but they seemed to be the only ones who had this as the main story they were reporting.
Al-Shabaab has taken “credit” for it:
Now that I think about it the same thing has happened over and over again, for instance Communists.
There's a certain pattern in some of the comments on that news page. Certain "ALL RELIGION IS BAD!!!!!!!!" comments are there, and if no one's been cheating with the voting, these comments seem pretty popular.
What you mention in your post reminds me of such people's blind spots--if a Muslim does something bad, then it's Religion's Fault instead of anything in particular about Islam, and atheists (especially the State Atheists of communism) have never, ever committed atrocities in the name of their beliefs.
I mentioned on another thread that this reminded me of Mumbai; in that attack they bypassed other Muslims as well.
It is scary enough living in NJ (with large Muslim populations in Jersey City & Paterson/Passaic); I couldn’t imagine living anywhere (heck, even visiting) in whcih these people comprised more than 1% of the population. In the US such places are increasingly difficult to find...
Are you sure he didn’t really say “Jesus is lord! All hail the Tea Party and death to all non Aryans”?
Religion of Peace.
See MSM thinks it’s no big deal as this happens millions of times a year in America by Christians.
Oh wait, it never does.
Oh well can’t mess with the MSM’s “Islam is Awesome” and “Let’s All Live Under Sharia Law” and “All religions are the same” templates.
They kill other muslims for not being the right sect, they’d have no problem offing a foreigner kaffir like you and me.
Maybe it’s like an abusive boyfriend to some people?
The word’s “Somalia terrorist group” and “mall” bring to my mind “Minnesota” (huge influx of Somalians) and the “Mall of America”.
