Death Toll 147 After Muslim Terrorists Target Christians at University in Kenya

Posted on | April 3, 2015 | 30 Comments

The latest atrocity in the global jihad:

Up to 150 people have been murdered by masked al-Shabaab terrorists who stormed a Kenyan university and shot and beheaded Christians in the worst attack in the country in 17 years.
The group raided the Garissa University College campus shortly after 5am local time yesterday, overwhelming guards and murdering people they suspected of being a Christian.
The death toll rose to 147 last night and the 13-hour siege ended. A total of 79 were injured and 587 were led to safety.
Most of those killed were students but two police officers, one soldier and two watchmen are among the dead. . . .
The attack is believed to be the worst terrorist attack on Kenyan soil since the bombing of the U.S. Embassy in Nairobi in 1998 which killed more than 200 people.
The terrorists stuck mid-way through Holy Week, the most solemn period in the Christian calendar. Last night, the Christian students were planning to celebrate the Last Supper in preparation for Good Friday.

(Via Memeorandum.) Islamic violence continues daily around the world. Most of this violent savagery goes unnoticed by the major U.S. media. Pamela Geller is one of the few sources who monitors the global jihad regularly. A few of her recent headlines:

UNHRC Confirms 200 Kidnapped Christian Girls
in Nigeria Murdered by Devout Muslim Group

Muslim mob attacks Sikh Temple in the UK

Two New York Muslim Women Arrested in Bomb Plot

No Insurance Available for Jewish Kindergartens in Belgium

Wait — what was that last headline?

A Belgian insurance company has refused to insure a Jewish kindergarten in Brussels.
The company claimed the risk of a terror attack on the European Jewish Association-run institution was too high.
EJA General Director Rabbi Menachem Margolin called on all European governments and heads of European Union institutions to provide security to all Jewish institutions that would satisfy insurance companies, and establish an alternative insurance mechanism that would secure any institution that might fall victim to anti-Semitic attacks.

Read the whole thing. This is both insane and unnecessary.

Sixty years after the Allies defeated Hitler, why should European Jews have to live with this kind of fear every day? Why should Christian students in Kenya have to fear being shot or beheaded by a gang of bloodthirsty Muslim fanatics? And why should Pamela Geller’s American Freedom Defense Initiative have to fight court battles — and media smear tactics — to run its advertisements in Philadelphia?

On Wednesday SEPTA buses first began rolling with ads the transit agency was forced to run after losing a legal battle on First Amendment grounds.
“Islamic Jew-hatred: It’s in the Qu’ran,” state the ads, which feature a picture of Hitler.
Eighty-four articulated buses operating out of three depots will carry the ads, SEPTA said.
That message doesn’t sit well with local Muslims.
“That’s wrong,” said Amira Muhammed, 30, of Northeast Philly, of the ad, after she got off a Route 33 bus carrying the new advertisement. “That’s not in the Koran. It says we have to respect other religions.”
Muhammed was shocked to learn that SEPTA lost a legal battle with the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), which paid $30,000 for ad space, and that SEPTA is required to run the advertisements.
“What we need to do is go in front of City Hall and say that this needs to stop,” she said.

You can’t stop the truth, Ms. Muhammed. The Koran does advocate violence against Jews, against Christians, against everyone who refuses to bow down to the hateful doctrines of the ignorant murderous “Prophet” for whom you are named.

How Irrational Is ‘Islamophobia’?

The truth is not “hate” and facts are not a “phobia.” Some people just don’t want you to know the truth about Islam and its founder.

“Muhammad was a bloodthirsty polygamous warlord
and also the prophet of a religion that
commands the murder of non-believers.”

All honest and intelligent Americans know this to be true. It is simply a fact of history, and anyone who doesn’t know the truth can read Robert Spencer’s books The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam and The Truth About Muhammad. You can read Brigitte Gabrielle’s Because They Hate: A Survivor of Islamic Terror Warns America. You can read Pamela Geller’s Stop the Islamization of America: A Practical Guide to the Resistance. No one has an excuse to be ignorant of the truth, nor should any American ever be afraid to speak the truth.

What we need is more courage. I just gave a donation to the American Freedom Defense Initiative and I hope others will do the same.

“Truth is great and will prevail if left to herself . . . she is the proper and sufficient antagonist to error, and has nothing to fear from the conflict, unless by human interposition disarmed of her natural weapons, free argument and debate, errors ceasing to be dangerous when it is permitted freely to contradict them.”
Thomas Jefferson, Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom, 1786

    Don’t you dare say anything anti Islamic about this, Islam is the Religion of Peace and Iran is out partner in Peace!

    Businessmen don’t have the luxury of thinking with
    their hearts; they use cold, hard facts in assessing their decisions, because if they don’t, they are very likely to fail in business. And when businessmen in much-more-liberal-Europe won’t sell insurance to a Jewish kindergarten, because the risk of a terrorist attack is too high, you know that that was the result of a cold assessment of the risks.

    I’m not entirely sure that’s correct in this case. For one thing cowardice effects business’ actions every day, the boycott Israel movement’s successes being a prime example. But giving the Belgian insurer the benefit of the doubt, the problem is that he can calculate the cost of not insuring the kindergarten. It must be extremely difficult to calculate the odds of an attack or the cost.

    They aren’t “real” Muslims, because real Muslims would never do this. They are, um, activists upset because they lack good jobs. And EBT cards. And midnight basketball. And flat screen TVs and xBoxes.

    Either that or a false flag operation by the Mossad, in league with the Tea Party. But not Muslims. And besides… hey look! Indiana!

    Thing is, the odds of an attack are very high. Maybe not at any particular kindergarten, but some Jewish target. Too much uncertainty to calculate an actuarial table.

    A couple wars going on right now. Good chances of one or two more starting. Don’t put any money on the other guy realizing his errors.

    Assuming that they are “errors.” Eventually, after watching the same policies implemented with the same results contrary to their stated goals, you have to evaluate whether you are watching mistakes or a deliberate campaign. Obama has drastically weakened America and emboldened our enemies. I think that’s a feature, not a bug.

    Did Ron Paul attribute this to American aid to Israel, American troops in Afghanistan, the residual American force in Iraq, American aid to the former Yemeni government, the American naval base in Mombassa, or the Truman Doctrine?

    This whole business decision carries the stench of zombie Thomas Watson Jr. and the entire IBM franchise. Watson was also completely without morals, ethics, or an ounce of compassion. He and his Hollerith machines greatly aided the Nazis in their destruction of more than six million Europeans before and during WWII. I’m sure Watson used “cold, hard facts” to make his decisions. He was also an ardent supporter of Hitler until that position became untenable in the United States. The business decision to not ensure a Jewish kindergarten smells like more of the same.

    And if those Christians would just rejoice and enable us in everything we set our minds to do, they wouldn’t have a problem. They keep harshing our mellow with stuff we don’t care about, like “facts” and “morality”, as if we care about those things.

    Sounds about right to me.

    Here’s a peek at our future: First [the corporations] came for the Jews…etc…

    p.s. Hey Tim Cook: my iPad is full of Bible translations, Greek and Hebrew interlinears and syntax references, Bible commentaries, historical atlases, and so on. That I use for Bible study. How do you like those apples ? ? Way to insult your [now former] customers, you creep. Guess you don’t care though. You got your “golden parachute”.

    You’ve confused Thomas Watson, Jr. with Thomas Watson, Sr. (and traduced the memory of both).

    Yes, I must apologize for confusing Jr. with Sr. The older Watson was certainly more obviously a Nazi than his offspring. Considering the role IBM continues to play in the Chamber of Commence, the American Community Survey and Left-Wing politics, however, I have no problem castigating IBM and anyone evil enough to support it.

    I disagree, they’re cowards. They remind me of the rats who insisted Hirsan Ali move out of her Dutch apartment because the Barbarians put a price on her head. I say let Europe die as the spineless weasels they are. The Jews can go to Israel.

    Europe is lost, it is only a matter of time now.
    Demographics is destiny and the only way to prevent the Islamization of Europe would be a war of genocide against the invading Muslims.
    Problem is the Europeans don’t have the balls to defend their way of life.
    They may as well all convert now.
