- Operation Restore Hope, 1992-1993
- Non-Muslim Westerners see pictures of poor starving Muslims.
They try to help them
for no reason other than altruism.
Local warlords and radical Muslims are not grateful but rather attack and slaughter the Westerners,
and drag their bodies through the streets.
The Westerners leave, abandoning the poor Muslims to their starvation.

that killed about 500,000 Somali men, women and children in 1991-1995.

Terrorizing Terrorists, Ralph Peters, January 10, 2007
- On US air strikes against Islamists in Somalia, 2007,
hoping to hit
Fazul Abdullah Mohammed,
the Butcher of the 1998 U.S. Embassy bombings.
- "the terror regime in Mogadishu crumbled overnight
- collapsing the lie that extremist Islam is on the march to an inevitable victory."
- "The speed of the Ethiopian advance cornered hundreds of hardcore Islamist fighters
in a forlorn backwater,
where they can be killed out of sight of their media defenders.
And be killed they will."
- "Far from being a growing threat - as America-haters insist - al Qaeda's on the run.
Confident that they had a new refuge in Somalia, international terrorists instead find themselves scrambling to escape justice."
- "no amount of rationalizations by anti-American voices can disguise the fact that this has been
a huge defeat for radical Islam and its terrorist vanguard: They're homeless again.
Fanatical dreams of re-establishing - and extending - the Muslim caliphate on the African continent
are suddenly in shambles
Far from impressing the world with its strength,
extremist Islam just revealed its inherent weakness again: Average Muslims don't like it and won't defend it."
William David Cleveland
being dragged through the streets of Mogadishu in 1993.
The Americans only went into Somalia because of TV images of the famine.
Their reward was to have their soldiers dragged through the streets.
The Americans withdrew, leaving the Somalis to their famine.
The Somali jihadists taught them the lesson:
Don't try to help starving Muslims.
You might think that is a bad lesson to teach the Westerners.
But jihadists do not think like you or me.
Many Somali pirates
will be simple criminals
But it is also true that Islamic warfare
has long (for centuries) justified such activity
against infidel ships.
And there is much evidence that
jihadists in Somalia (Al-Shabaab)
fund their war through pirate attacks.
Islam has a long history of piracy and slavery.
- Muslim pirates raided Christian Europe for booty and slaves for centuries
before Europe grew strong enough to stop them.
about the Islamic pirates of Aceh, Indonesia.
From The Achenese,
Christiaan Snouck Hurgronje,
pub in Dutch in
"To these peoples in whom the savage is as a rule not yet extinct, nothing can more attractive than the idea that they as Mohammedans are the lords of the world and that all infidels stand far below them while the privilege or obligation of depriving certain of the latter of life or property merely gives a new turn to their favorite pursuits of fighting and pillage.
From Mohammedanism .. [Aceh] really only learnt a large number of dogmas relating to hatred of the infidel without any of their mitigating concomitants; so the Acehnese made a regular business of piracy and man-hunting at the expense of the neighboring non-Mohammedan countries and islands".
Sounds like Somalia today.
- The failed, semi-jihadist state of Somalia is the centre of modern Islamic piracy.
(but existed before then).

Movie about the hijacking.
Islam and jihad are not mentioned.
Leftist Johann Hari defends pirates, 4 Jan 2009.
He claims low rank pirates on pirate ships
were better treated than low rank sailors on navy and merchant ships,
which might actually be true,
but look at his wording (in bold):
"Pirates were the first people to rebel against this world. They mutinied against their tyrannical captains - and created a different way of working on the seas. Once they had a ship, the pirates elected their captains, and made all their decisions collectively."
Robbing and raping is "working"!
Tribute to the US Navy SEALs' epic shooting in the
Maersk Alabama hijacking
("Al Qaeda in East Africa")

the violent religion of Islam
Enslave all Somalis under Islamic sharia law.
Forcibly convert or kill all non-Muslims.
Sickening massacres of innocents.
Because they have no morality.

- Al-Shabaab abuse children, report, Feb 2012.

"al-Shabaab has increasingly targeted boys as young as 10 for action on the frontline to join its dwindling ranks. Whole classrooms have been forced at gunpoint to leave school and fight."
They abduct girls to use as sex slaves:
"A 16-year-old girl who refused to marry an al-Shabaab commander .. was killed .. and beheaded. Her head was brought back to the school as a warning".

Well, what else could it be?"

As seen in Sudan, famine
is one of the regular consequences of jihad
- Jihad causes poverty and famine
- 2011 Somali famine
- Somali jihadists ban aid groups during 2011 famine.
"Most Western aid agencies quit Somalia in 2009 following al-Shabab's threats".
- Al-Shabaab jihadists preventing aid from reaching 2.2 million Somalis
Al-Shabaab threatens to attack starving people who have gone to western aid camps
if they don't turn around and go home.
- Somali jihadists say famine declaration is a hoax to make Muslims flee toward "Christian" influences in neighboring countries.
Al Shabab is intentionally starving Somali Christians in territory it controls.
"Any Somali that is suspected of being a Christian, or a friend of a Christian, does not receive any food aid".

Somali jihadists kidnap western aid workers who are only trying to help, Oct 2011.

are let go.
The non-Muslims are killed.
- Kenyan shopping centre attack
Al Shabaab jihadists raped shoppers in front of their children.
- Al Shabaab tortured and castrated shoppers:
"hostages were dismembered, had their eyes gouged out and were left hanging from hooks in the ceiling.
Men were said to have been castrated and had fingers removed with pliers before being blinded and hanged.
Children were found dead in the food court fridges with knives still embedded in their bodies".
"They removed 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.
fingers are cut by pliers, the noses are ripped by pliers."
- Journalist Kamal Kaur was caught in the attack. Her tweets are heartbreaking:
- Two ex-soldier heroes among the shoppers:
former Irish soldier
former British soldier
saved hundreds of lives.
Acting on training, armed only with handguns, they went back in repeatedly to get people out.
They fired on the killers.
How proud Britain and Ireland can be of these men.
The Guardian on Kenya
wrote an extraordinary stream of rubbish about Kenya.
- The jihadists are fighting against capitalism:
Giles Foden, 23 Sept 2013, has got a brand new theory of the Islamic jihad.
Despite the jihadists openly and endlessly saying they are fighting for Islam,
Foden knows what they are really fighting for.
"like al-Qaida before it ... al-Shabaab is really attacking the very idea of capitalism".
The killers identified non-Muslims and killed them.
There is no ambiguity whatsoever in this naked display of religious terrorism.
Foden is merely imposing his own strange western ideas on people who do not believe them.
- We hate jihadists because they is black:
- Jamie Gilham, 25 Sept 2013,
complains about the "demonisation" of Al Shabaab scumbag Samantha Lewthwaite.
"Her transgressions are plentiful: she converted to Islam, took the veil and a Muslim name,
married a black and notoriously radical convert, and is the mother of mixed-race children."
- What? She married a suicide bomber who bombed London! And she supports Islamic terror!
It is nothing to do with marrying a "black" and having "mixed-race children"!
Who is fooled by this transparent attempt to smear opponents of Islamic terror as racists?
- Why would any intelligent person read this newspaper?
- I was expecting
The New Yorker
to be similar, but in fact
Jon Lee Anderson, 25 Sept 2013, delivers total sense:
"The culprit here, beyond poverty and lack of education and all the rest of it, is political Islam and its aberrant variations, which together have taken a religious faith and turned it into a tool of warfare and a toxic adjunct of modern day globalization. The answer has to include a thus-far undetectable bout of soul-searching, especially among political, civic, and religious leaders in the Muslim world."
The Islamist way of war:
The Somali Muslim Al Shabaab fighters attack women and children in a
shopping centre in Kenya, Sept 2013.
The hero trying to protect the women and children
who is Somali Muslim himself.
He fired on the killers with a handgun.
It was a welcome piece of good news to
have a Muslim hero respond to the attacks.
A Muslim that fights jihadists to save infidels deserves the highest praise.
A true Muslim hero.
Al Shabaab boast they killed "over 100 Kenyan kuffar" in the shopping centre, Sept 2013.
Yet still Allah does not exist.
