Is this really example of what Mohammed wanted Islam to be?

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

What's happening in Kenya? The media showed us a major war in a mall in Nairobi, then left us to wonder what it was all about. So I went searching, and found an article from Freedom Outpost.com with more details about the happenings there. But now, suddenly, we are hearing again about Al Shabab.
We were originally told that 10 or 20 jihadists rampaged a mall in Nairobi, and after several days were defeated. The real story is that they didn't just shoot people. They kept hostages (non-Muslims) and tortured them, removing fingers, eyes and other parts, and stabbing and hanging them. Some graphic pictures are on the website. Up to 69 civilians were killed.
The rescue operation began at 6 a.m. on Monday when Kenyan troops and helicopters surrounded the building, but their efforts were hampered by an Al Shabab sniper who managed to pin them back for nearly 24 hours. Tear gas was used to try to flush him out, and another terrorist reportedly blew himself up. It is believed the resulting fire may have killed dozens of shoppers in a supermarket. The mall was retaken when soldiers attacked the terror group on the roof of the mall.
The first pictures taken inside of the site show a gaping hole in the mall's roof after three stories collapsed when Kenyan soldiers fired rocket-propelled grenades inside the complex, knocking out a support column.

This massacre was all done in the name of Allah. Is this really what Mohammed wanted Islam to be? Where are all the peace-loving Muslims? Why is the media so quiet about what really happened there? Why would peace-loving people massacre innocent civilians? Will we get any answers from the leaders that were captured in Somalia? The world needs our prayers.
