Cartoons are not always intended to be funny. This one by Chip Snaddon asks a most pertinent question – in the wake if the Westgate shopping mall terrors attack in Nairobi, Kenya.

The Islamist group Al-Shabaab claimed responsibility for the incident, which it characterised as retribution for the Kenyan military's deployment in Somalia. Many media outlets also suspected the insurgent group's involvement in the attack based on earlier reprisal warnings it had issued in the wake of Operation Linda Nchi from 2011 to 2012. (Source)
According to several news reports the attackers told Muslims to leave and that non-Muslims would be targeted (murdered in cold blood). Others were asked to name the mother of the Islamic prophet Muhammad to distinguish Muslims from non-Muslims. They also distinguished Muslims from non-Muslims by asking others to recite the shahadah, an Islamic creed which declares belief in the oneness of God and acceptance of Muhammad as God's prophet.
In the meantime…
The same extremist group that took over a Nairobi mall attacked a security post near the Somali border Thursday and killed two police officers, while promising the violence would continue until Kenyan troops were withdrawn from Somalia.
The leader of the Somalia-based al-Shabaab, Ahmed Godane Shaykh Mukhtar Abu Zubayr, warned the Kenyan public there was no way they could "withstand a war of attrition inside your own country," in a new statement posted on the Internet late Wednesday.
"Make your choice today and withdraw all your forces,…" Godane said. "Otherwise be prepared for an abundance of blood that will be spilt in your country, economic downfall and displacement." (Source)
An older posting (Aug 2011) published on the TIA MYSOA Blog warns of a possible ‘Islamic inspired’ bloodbath coming to South Africa sometime in the near future. Another older posting on this blog titled “THE PERSECUTION AND GENOCIDE OF CHRISTIANS IN AFRICA” includes a map of Africa that shows how Islamic influence in East Africa is surging downwards towards the south, where it has dissected Kenya, Tanzania, and Mozambique. It’s only a matter of time before the terrorist wave hits South Africa in full force.
University of Free State political scientist Hussein Solomon, himself a Muslim, has been warning South Africa of the risks of terrorism in the country for some time. According to him South African security services are not taking ‘the peril of Islamist terrorism seriously’. He further states: “Speak to a South African securocrat on the need for vigilance against any Islamist terror threat and you will most likely be scoffed at.” (Source)
Many of Solomon’s peers accept his basic assumption that South Africa is inadvertently providing a safe haven for members of organisations like al-Qaeda and al-Shabaab to conduct other activities. This fact in itself is already sufficient proof that the current Marxist-Communist rulers were ‘handed’ power by the devious hidden hand of satan.
Is South Africa Turning A Blind Eye To Terrorism?
Will the Westgate terror attack be a wake-up call for South Africa? Of course not!
