    Good thing British authorities are keeping foes of jihad such as Pamela Geller and me out of the country, eh? If they let us in, people like these men with "roots in Turkey, Pakistan, Algeria and Azerbaijan" might get angry and start plotting violence.

    After Islamic gunmen attacked the Westgate Mall in Nairobi, Kenya, the collective reaction from the US media was to speculate whether such terror could happen here, as if a jihadist assault on a mall inside America had never before been tried. CNN was typical: “Can it happen here? Yes, say security experts, but it hasn’t.” News flash: it did. On the evening of Feb. 12, 2007, a young Muslim man walked into the Trolley Square mall in Salt Lake City with a pistol-grip, 12-gauge shotgun and a 38-caliber revolver and opened fire on shoppers, killing five and wounding four others,...

    Pretoria - South Africa has been put on terror alert after Samantha Lewthwaite, the alleged mastermind behind the Kenya terrorist attack, was seen doing surveillance of embassies in Pretoria recently. Dubbed the "White Widow" by the British media, Lewthwaite has been on intelligence watch lists for the past two years. Recent sightings of her were brought to the attention of the South African police intelligence by a security organisation linked to the local Jewish community. According to the Sunday Independent, South Africa is on a level 4 – orange-coded – rating following this new development. Only a red alert is...

    'A British man who offered himself as a hostage to save the lives of a group of children was today described by colleagues as a 'born leader'. Mitul Shah, 38, a sales executive from London attempted to strike a deal with the terrorists, replacing children with himself, a heroic act which gave several victims vital time to escape. The selfless father did not get through to the gunmen and was shot alongside a number of children in the Kenyan tragedy, leaving behind his wife and two-year-old daughter. Today his employers, the cooking oil company Bidco Oil, and his work colleagues...

  • Kenya President Declares Victory Over Terrorists in Mall Carnage

    The president of Kenya declared victory over terrorists today saying that despite an "immense" loss of life during the attack on a Nairobi shopping mall, defense forces "ashamed and defeated our attackers." President Uhuru Kenyatta described a scene of bloody carnage following a lengthy siege of the Westgate mall that left at least 72 people dead, including 61 civilians. The death toll is expected to rise, he said, because in the final hours of fighting, three of the mall's floors collapsed, resulting in "several bodies still trapped in the rubble including the terrorists." He said 240 people had been injured...

    A doctor told Kenya's The Star newspaper that Al Shabab militants castrated hostages, gouged out eyes and cut off limbs. And that was just the beginning of the nightmarish cruelty of the radical group aligned with Al Qaeda that made its move Saturday. "They removed...eyes, ears, nose. They get your hand and sharpen it like a pencil then they tell you to write your name with the blood," said the doctor, who was not named in the report cited by England's The Independent. "They drive knives inside a child's body. Actually, if you look at all the bodies, unless those...

He managed to evacuate scores of people to safety, including that young American girl, Portia Walker, and is being hailed in Kenya as a hero. -snip- Haji says he grew up around guns and lately had been carrying his pistol...

    The woman in a full-length burka walked calmly into the drab government office. She moved close to the desk behind which an administrator was shuffling his papers. Others queued around her. Suddenly, without warning, she detonated the suicide vest she was wearing. The explosion flashed a brilliant white on the grainy CCTV before the cameras cut out, obliterating everything – and everyone – in the room.

    As he reminded us again after losing narrowly to Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire, Barack Obama likes to evoke Martin Luther King's "I have a dream" speech. We must all hope that, like King's, Mr. Obama's dream is "deeply rooted in the American dream." But before giving him the keys to the White House, Americans might like to know a little more about the content of Mr. Obama's dream. Let me propose an unlikely place to start looking: Kenya. Even in the midst of the primaries, the horrific scenes from that country since the disputed election on December 27 will...

    The al-Qaeda affiliate Al-Shabaab has launched a lengthy massacre in an upscale Nairobi mall popular with Westerners, with a death toll of at least 59 people so far. The attack comes in reprisal for Kenya’s participation in suppressing the terrorist networks that operate in al-Shabaab’s home base of Somalia, and specifically targeted “non-Muslims.” It’s essentially a replay of Mumbai from five years ago, with the only question remaining is how many more will the terrorists kill before getting killed themselves or committing suicide. The terrorists told Muslims to clear out of the mall before attacking the rest:(VIDEO-AT-LINK) The Kenyan military...

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...
