Al Shabab terrorist handed Mars bars to kids: ‘please forgive me, we are not monsters’

A four-year-old British boy survived the Kenyan shopping mall terror attack after standing up to a gunman and telling him: ‘You’re a very bad man.’  (Metro)

The boy was with his mother, who is in hospital recovering after being shot in the leg during the attack, and six-year-old sister when they were approached by one of the terrorists, the Sun reported.

As a gunman approached he shouted: ‘You’re a bad man, let us leave.’

The terrorist took pity on the family and after giving them Mars bars he let them escape with their mum, saying: ‘Please forgive me, we are not monsters.’

The mother revealed one said they only want to kill Kenyans and Americans.

She added: ‘He told me I had to change my religion to Islam and said, “Do you forgive us?”’

Melanie Phillips Sets David Cameron Straight Re Jihadi Terrorism Being Part and Parcel of Islamic Doctrine  (Scaramouche)

She writes:

In response to the Nairobi atrocity, in which the Somali Islamic terrorist outfit al Shabab murdered at least 62 people in a shopping mall and injured at least 170 after separating out the non-Muslims and then killing them, the British Prime Minister David Cameron said:

‘These appalling terrorist attacks that take place where the perpetrators claim they do it in the name of a religion – they don’t. They do it in the name of terror, violence and extremism and their warped view of the world. They don’t represent Islam or Muslims in Britain or anywhere else in the world.’

Oh dear.

You know what he’s trying to say. He’s trying to make the necessary point that countless Muslims in Britain and elsewhere abhor such attacks. It is indeed important not to tar all Muslims with the same murderous brush. But the rest of his statement is simply false. Not just false, but also potentially lethal.

All attacks by Islamic terrorist groups are very explicitly made in the name of a religion. The perpetrators may recite Koranic verses, scream ‘Allahu akhbar’, declare they are acting in the name of God, proclaim Islamic holy war or single out non-Muslims for slaughter. These characteristics are all clues that such people act in the name of a religion…

Apparently, Cameron is another politician who, like Senator John McCain, is prepared to believe that the age-old jihadi war cry is merely an Islamic way to say G’day, Allah.
