After Kenya, 60 Killed in Pakistan Church.

After, “The attack by Somalia’s al-Qaeda-linked rebel group, al-Shabab, at an upscale mall in Nairobi has killed at least 59 people and wounded 175 others, Kenya’s interior cabinet secretary said.

Multiple barrages of gunfire erupted on Sunday morning from inside the building where there is a hostage stand-off with the attackers nearly 24 hours after they stormed the Westgate shopping centre using grenades and assault rifles.”

The Guardian adds,

During a lull in the firing the attackers called out in Swahili, a language widely spoken in Kenya and the rest of east Africa, for Muslims to identify themselves and leave.

Covering the Christian name on his ID with his thumb he approached one of the attackers, whom he described as Somali, and showed them the plastic card. “They told me to go. Then an Indian man came forward and they said, ‘What is the name of Muhammad’s mother?’ When he couldn’t answer they just shot him.”

Now, there is this,

A suicide bomb attack on a church in the Pakistani city of Peshawar has killed at least 60 people, police said.

The attack occurred as parishioners left the building after attending Sunday mass, police said.
“After the service ended, people started to come out and the suicide bomber rushed towards them,” said Najeeb Bogvi, a senior police officer in Peshawar.

A hospital spokesperson said that at least 120 people had been wounded in the attack.

These two atrocities have a one, very clear, link.

  1. The Kenyan shopping mall is owned and managed by Israelis. A ‘white woman’ has been described as being one of the attackers. Jermaine Lyndsey’s widow peut-etre?
