Who’s Behind the Latest Kenya Attacks?
The terror group as brutal as Islamic State
A TERROR group that has killed thousands of people and carried out public mutilations on innocent citizens is lesser known than Islamic State but just as brutal.
Once again, I would hasten to add that all of these myriad terrorist groups read the same Koran and they all worship the same meshugge profit of Islam. It makes not one iota difference to us, the infidels, what they call themselves. They are all soldiers of allah. They all share the same goal.
A YOUNG girl accused of adultery is forced into a hole in the ground and buried up to her neck in front of about 1000 spectators who have come to the football stadium to watch her death.
Aisha Ibrahim Duhulow, 13, pleads for her captors to “don’t kill me” before a truckload of stones is rolled in and about 50 fighters from the Al-Shabaab militia start to hurl them towards her.
She’s being punished for reporting that three men had raped her in the southern port city of Kismayo in Somalia.
After about 10 minutes of being violently struck by stones, two nurses are instructed to dig up Ms Duhulow, and check if she’s still alive. She is. Barely. So they put her back into the hole and the men continue to pelt stones at her until she is dead.
“This child suffered a horrendous death at the behest of the armed opposition groups,” Amnesty International’s Somalia campaigner David Copeman said at the time.
It was October 27, 2008 and the terror group responsible for the killing was relatively new but since then it has grown bigger and deadlier.
Al-Shabaab — a terror group lesser known than Islamic State but just as brutal — imposes its own version of Islamic law, which includes dress regulations and public mutilations, and has an estimated 7000 to 9000 fighters. The name translates to “The Youth” in Arabic.
It’s been responsible for the deaths of thousands of people in a string of guerrilla-style terror attacks, making it Africa’s deadliest Islamic extremist group.
The group is suspected to be responsible for the deadly truck bombing which killed at least 276 people and injured 300 on a crowded Mogadishu street on Saturday.
