Kenya, Islam and Demonic Terror

I have already written about the horrific Islamic terror attack on a mall in Nairobi, Kenya. Of course it was still early days then, and events were still unfolding. But even then things looked pretty horrific indeed:

Well with the siege finally at an end, we now know far more about this diabolical terror attack, and it is even far worse than any of us could have imagined. The mind-numbing violence, bloodshed, torture, mayhem and killing can be accounted for by with only one thing: this is a religion that comes straight out of the very pits of hell.

It almost seems that what we had running amok in this mall were not just mere men, but demons. How else can we explain the utterly horrific and barbaric acts of cruelty these Muslims perpetrated on poor, innocent men, women and children?

The reports now emerging about this massacre are almost beyond belief. But sadly we have witnessed many other atrocities committed in the name of Islam. And we will likely learn of even worse things in the days ahead. Consider how one UK account describes the situation:

“Soldiers told of the horrific torture meted out by terrorists in the Nairobi mall massacre yesterday with claims hostages were dismembered, had their eyes gouged out and were left hanging from hooks in the ceiling. Men were said to have been castrated and had fingers removed with pliers before being blinded and hanged. Children were found dead in the food court fridges with knives still embedded in their bodies, it was claimed.

“Most of the defeated terrorists, meanwhile, were reportedly discovered ‘burnt to ashes’, set alight by the last extremist standing to try to protect their identities. The horrifying details came yesterday as the first pictures emerged from within the wreckage of the building, showing piles of bodies left strewn across the floor. A third of the mall was destroyed in the battle between terrorists and Kenyan troops.

“Lying in the rubble are feared to be the bodies of as many as 71 civilians who have been declared missing by the Kenyan Red Cross. With detectives, including the FBI and the Metropolitan Police, still unable to reach the wrecked part of the mall for fear of setting off explosives, it could take up to a week to determine exactly who is still inside.

“Yesterday, soldiers and doctors who were among the first people into the mall after it was reclaimed on Tuesday, spoke of the horrifying scenes inside. ‘You find people with hooks hanging from the roof,’ said one Kenyan doctor, who asked not to be named. ‘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. They drive knives inside a child’s body.

“’Actually if you look at all the bodies, unless those ones that were escaping, fingers are cut by pliers, the noses are ripped by pliers. Here it was pain.’ A soldier, who took pictures at a bread counter and at the ArtCaffe, said he was so traumatised by what he saw he has had to seek counselling….

“Between 10 and 15 terrorists are thought to have stormed the mall on Saturday, according to Kenyan officials. The police said five insurgents were killed in the battle and at least 10 taken into custody. One soldier told the Daily Mirror: ‘I have seen many bad things, but this will haunt me for the rest of my days’.”

And yet the most amazing thing about all this is how so much of the Western media refuses to even properly identify the demonic killers. The ‘I’ word was conspicuous by its absence in far too many media reports. The refusal of the Western media to tell it like it is regarding Islam shows how far we have gone down the path of dhimmitude in the West.

We would rather allow the mass murder and torture of countless innocent civilians than actually name the real culprit behind all this. Well, I am not afraid to do this. The political ideology of Islam is the culprit, and it is a curse upon this civilised world.

Indeed, just imagine if this horrific act of evil and terror were carried out in the name of Christianity. The outrage would be universal, constant and exceedingly loud. Yet because this was done by Muslims, most of the lamestream media wants to keep silent about the source of this evil.

One writer however was smart enough and brave enough to discuss this very matter. In her article “After Kenya, no more turning the other cheek to those who hate us,” Allison Pearson was quite forward about these matters. She begins her piece this way:

“Picture the scene if you can bear to. A bustling shopping precinct where a group of men, women and children are surrounded by armed men. As one of the terrorists moves among them, he demands that the person quailing in front of him names the mother of Jesus or recites the Lord’s Prayer. ‘Our Father which art in Heaven,’ says one woman. She is spared. Her neighbour, a Muslim boy, racks his brain for any line of the Bible, anything he has heard in school or on TV. But it’s too late. The boy is shot through the head; put to death for not being Christian.

“Imagine the uproar if that ethnic and religious cleansing had taken place this week. Picture the hollering human-rights activists, the emergency session at the United Nations, the promise of action against the perpetrators who had singled out non-Christians for execution.

“Yet this is a hellish mirror image of what took place in the Westgate shopping mall in Nairobi. Islamic fundamentalists murdered scores of innocent shoppers for failing to name the mother of the Prophet Mohammed or recite from the Koran – sufficient proof that they were despised ‘kafirs’ or unbelievers.

“Radio presenter Saadia Ahmed said she saw people say something in Arabic ‘and the gunmen let them go. A colleague of mine said he was Muslim and they let him go as well.’ But she added: ‘I saw a lot of children and elderly people being shot dead. I don’t understand why you would shoot a five-year-old child.’

“Roughly the same reason you would stroll down a street in Woolwich and behead a young squaddie wearing a Help for Heroes T-shirt – which is to say, no reason at all, unless blind ideological hatred counts as a reason.’ You’re a very bad man. Let us leave,’ four-year-old Elliott Prior shouted at the gunman in Westgate mall who had just shot his mother, Amber, in the leg.

“The startled jihadist gave Elliott and his six-year-old sister, Amelie, a Mars bar and allowed mother and children to go after urging Amber to convert to Islam. As if. There is a photograph of Elliott and Amelie standing next to a dead body, still clutching their unopened Mars bar. The children’s eyes are brimming with what they have seen, and can never un-see.”

Yes the emotional, mental and physical scars of the poor men, women and children who somehow managed to survive all this may never be healed. Please pray for them. Pearson concludes her article with these words:

“Where are the voices from Britain’s Somali community condemning the murder of innocents by maniacs acting in the name of their religion? As a former Sunday schoolteacher, I sort of get the point of turning the other cheek. But, really, enough is enough.

“Time for a crackdown on fundamentalism in all its poisonous guises. Time to stop appeasing those who hate us and our way of life. Time, in fact, for the clear-eyed moral judgment of a four-year-old child. ‘You’re a very bad man,’ said Elliott Prior to the jihadist. And he was, and they are.”

Exactly right.

  1. Thanks for informing us, Bill. We must never lose sight of who our enemies are and what they are inflicting on the innocent. These actions remind me of the merciless ancient Assyrians who were feared above all of the other most barbaric cultures of the day. We are looking at an unprecedented imagination for evil here; a cruel and supernatural genius for inventing the most heinous of actions. We are facing demon inhabited human bodies venting their rage on the pinnacle of God’s creation. But despite their evil, we must remember that we have been given power to drive them back through prayer

    Matthew 16:19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

    Matthew 18:18 Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

    Luke 10:19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

  2. Well done Mr. Mühlenberg The Australian media has shamefully neglected the relevance of this terrible episode for/to this country: see my own article of a few years ago; (before the cowardly retreat).

    The atrocities visited on captives before death were almost unbelievable except for pictures and newsreel footage now circulating. On the worst day, the ABC was more concerned about the Climate Commission and Nairobi barely rated: I found myself watching the BBC and the voice of jihad, al-Jazeera.

    As a migrant myself, I cannot believe spinelessness in the face of evil, nor the resort to the ostrich position.

  3. Turn the other cheek, depending I suppose. “The alien who lives among you will rise above you higher and higher, but you will sink lower and lower. He will lend to you, but you will not lend to him. He will be the head, but you will be the tail.” Deuteronomy 28:43-44 (NIV)

  4. G’day Bill,

    I have not read, anywhere, the horrifying description of the torture and mutilation of the victims. Thanks for keeping us informed.

    When the news first came out, I read the article on the ABC website. The word ‘Islamist’ was there, though deep in the article. Later that day, I happened to read the article again, and the word ‘Islamist’ had disappeared. I emailed the author of the article, asking why the word was removed and who had required the change. Needless to say, I didn’t get a reply.

  5. Bill, a graphic description, not read in the media. Almost unreal, yet it happened.
    The media diverts from the truth all the time.

  6. I wonder if some of the neighbouring African nations—together with support from the international community—are considering entering Somalia, to help roll back the chaos, and assist quality local leaders to restore law, order, and a safe society.

  7. I looked up Kenya’s “Daily Nation”. It is quite brief on details:

    “Reports that hostages held by the terrorists were tortured have been confirmed, but what really happened remains a mystery.”

  8. I felt sick to the stomach as I read this article and wondered why our newspapers and TV stations are so gutless when it comes to anything that may involve Muslims. As you say Bill if they had been Christians it would be splashed across every news paper, TV, Facebook etc.around the world.
    There is a war going on and yet so many Christians seem to be either avoiding it or are not prepared to face reality because it is not politically correct to do so.

  9. Demonic is too mild a word to describe this kind of terrorism inflicted by Muslim “extremists” all over the world. It needs to be called Satanic. Not only are these Satan possessed Muslims attacking others, but also their very own:

    This ugly news turns the stomach, and also turns Jesus’ statement upside down, making what this father did more Satanic, than demonic:

    “Which of you fathers, if your son asks for[f] a fish, will give him a snake instead? Or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!” (Luke 11:11-13)

    Which of those Muslim fathers, indeed? You can’t trust those who would turn on their own kind. Which comes to another verse in the Bible, reminding us of the Power of Prayer, enter God’s power and might: (Read 2 Chronicles 20) …
    22 When they began singing and praising, the Lord set ambushes against the sons of Ammon, Moab and Mount Seir, who had come against Judah; so they were [e]routed. 23 For the sons of Ammon and Moab rose up against the inhabitants of Mount Seir destroying them completely; and when they had finished with the inhabitants of Seir, they helped to destroy one another.

    We cannot defeat this Satanic enemy without God.

  10. Johannes Archer – I suspect you have hit a nail firmly on the head here. After reading your post, I couldn’t get this quote out of my mind – usually the Holy Spirit wanting to show me something, I have found. I have heard it said that islam is a judgment of God on the West. Now I think that is absolutely the case. The Deuteronomy 28 quote is pretty clear. We are meant to be discipling the nations, ie teaching them to obey all that the Lord has commanded us. We are meant to be preaching the gospel to all and sundry, healing the sick, driving out demons, and raising the dead. The theory of evolution shows up in 1859, and what does the Church do? Let the enemy take the high ground in this key area. We retreat from the political arena. We retreat from media, we retreat from movies which mould the hopes, dreams, and aspirations of the rising generation. We retreat from education. We retreat from the marketplace of ideas generally, and should we be surprised that the enemy has occupied these key areas? I know these are generalisations, but please tell me I am wrong. We are getting what we deserve. Freedom comes at a price. If we are unwilling to pay that price, we get less and less freedom. Surprise, surprise.
