Earlier today, TGR (The Geller Report) published news accounts of Muslims in Kenya going on a murder spree as’part of a campaign to kill unbelievers.’ This looks like it may very well be part of that Muslim war.

Kenya, once the beacon of leight of democracy on the dark continent, now under siege by jihad, thanks in large part to their native son, Obama.

“Man shot dead after stabbing guard at US Embassy in Kenya,” By Tom Odula | AP October 27 at 1:01 PM

NAIROBI, Kenya — A man was shot dead after stabbing a policeman guarding the perimeter wall of the U.S. Embassy in Nairobi and trying to take his gun, a Kenyan police official said Thursday.

The policeman who had been stabbed opened fire in self-defense and killed the attacker, said Vitalis Otieno, the officer in charge of the Gigiri area that hosts several embassies and the U.N’s African headquarters.

“He fired first and shot the person and the person died on the spot,” Otieno said.

The identity of the attacker, a Kenyan from the volatile region of Wajir near Somalia, is known to police, Otieno said.

Federal Bureau of Investigation personnel were seen collecting evidence at the scene of the shooting.

The U.S. Embassy confirmed there was a shooting and said no embassy personnel were involved.

Wajir county has been cited by Kenyan authorities as a hot spot for recruitment by the Islamic extremist group al-Shabab from neighboring Somalia.

Al-Shabab has vowed retribution on Kenya for sending troops to Somalia to fight the militants. The group has carried out a wave of attacks in Kenya that have left hundreds dead.

The extremist group claimed responsibility for an attack Tuesday in Mandera county that killed 12 people, saying its fighters were targeting Christians.

Al-Shabab is al-Qaida’s affiliate in the region, and it hosted Fazul Abdallah Mohammed, who was accused of masterminding the U.S. Embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998 that killed over 200 people. Mohammed was shot dead by Somali troops in 2011.

Recently, Kenya has been battling the recruitment of youth by the Islamic State group, which is al-Qaida’s rival. Kenyan police have linked three women who were killed after they allegedly attacked a police station in Mombasa to the Islamic State.
