Default Westlands Nairobi, terrorist shooting

On my phone so don't know how to link but 20 dead so far. Shooters walked in and told the Muslims to leave and tried to kill the rest. In a family shopping centre. I know there are a few Kenyanphiles here. My dad has a place in Muthaiga.

We spent yesterday evening glued to the overseas news on TV and internet. The Westgate Mall is a place we know very well. Terrible news. I suspect there will be local retribution on the streets of Nairobi.

I have a Kenyan friend who lives in Nairobi, thankfully he and his family weren't out shopping. What is wrong with these people?

I don't proscribe Muslims per see, it's the religion that I strongly dislike due to its ethnosupremacist and conquering mindset.

Terrible news story to see.

Lots of stories of people being stuck, hidden in the mall, must be terrifying.

Fingers crossed no more people die and those responsible are punished.

Agreed. Problem is that the punished become martyrs, at least potentially.

Have there been any condemnation statements from Muslim leaders on the World stage? I don't mean by Kingston's local Iman who will be petrified that his mosque will be torched, but by muslim governments? I hope so.

Wherever there are Muslims, there's trouble. They spend most of their time killing each other, so they're not going to have much respect for other religions. Sure there are good muslims but they have a herd mentality programmed to never criticise their own and those in the Arab world especially are brainwashed from birth. It's not even a religion, it's a death cult.

Whenever I travel the local kids are usually very cute and inquisitive about strangers;when I go back to the Middle East they chuck stones and shout "f#*# you".

Wow! Really? I must have missed this piece of factual reporting on the 1.6 billion or about 23.4% of the world population which are Muslim.

It seems that there is never enough of that. Insufficient condemnation may well be seen by the perpetrators as endorsement, so the powerful Muslim nations (yes, KSA, I'm looking at you) ought to be vociferous in the damning and distancing from such awful acts.
