al-Shabaab's Savagery Detailed

The Independent:

A police doctor scouring Nairobi’s Westgate mall for bodies after a four-day siege by Islamist gunmen that claimed dozens of lives has said victims were tortured before they died, according to a Kenyan newspaper.

“Those are not allegations. Those are f****** truths,” the doctor, a forensics expert, told The Star newspaper. “They removed balls, eyes, ears, nose. They get your hand and sharpen it like a pencil then they tell you to write your name with the blood. They drive knives inside a child’s body. Actually, if you look at all the bodies, unless those ones that were escaping, fingers are cut by pliers, the noses are ripped by pliers.”

Ghoulish accounts on the fate of the hostages have circulated Nairobi and there have been claims that the military was forced to blow up part of the Westgate complex not just to bring the siege to an end, but to end the appalling suffering of hostages amid reports that hostages were raped, and others beheaded and their heads thrown out of the windows.

Remember al-Shabaab believes they did this in the name for Islam.

5 Beslan, Mumbai, Moscow theater... all a disturbing pattern of islamic "jihad" against civilians. Its just a matter of time before some islamists attempt such a thing in America.

I wonder, if (when) it does happen, will we still have people on the fence proclaiming "this isn't islam. This is just a few extremists..."
