Not a single news headline even attempts to describe reality: Islamic terrorism, just a random car bombing that killed nearly more than 200 300.

Update: Somalia truck bombing toll over 300 as funerals continue

MOGADISHU, Somalia (AP) — The death toll from a truck bombing in Somalia’s capital has risen above 300, the director of an ambulance service said Monday, as the fragile Horn of Africa nation reeled from the deadliest single attack it’s ever experienced.

More people died of their wounds in the past few hours, said Dr. Abdulkadir Adam of Aamin Ambulance service. Funerals have begun, and the government said the death toll is expected to rise in what has become one of the world’s worst attacks in years.

Saturday’s truck bombing targeted a crowded street in Mogadishu, and about 300 others were injured, many with horrific burns.

MOGADISHU, Somalia (AP) — The death toll from the most powerful bomb blast witnessed in Somalia’s capital rose to 189 with more than 200 injured, making it the deadliest single attack ever in the Horn of Africa nation, police and hospital sources said Sunday.

Somalia’s government has blamed the al-Qaida-linked al-Shabab extremist group for the attack it called a “national disaster.” However, al-Shabab, which often targets high-profile areas of the capital with bombings, had yet to comment.

“They don’t care about the lives of Somali people, mothers, fathers and children,” Prime Minister Hassan Ali Khaire said. “They have targeted the most populated area in Mogadishu, killing only civilians.”

Somalia’s information minister, Abdirahman Omar, said the blast was the largest the city had ever seen. “It’s a sad day. This how merciless and brutal they are, and we have to unite against them,” he said, speaking to the state-run radio station.

  1. You will not see this fairly or accurately reported because the truth goes against the Islam is “The Religion of Peace ” mantra. Reality shows that the 7the Century lifestyle know as Islam’s goal is to take over the world and force everyone to live under Sharia Law or Die. It is in their teachings and ignored by Liberals on a daily basis.

  4. It’s sickening that these African nations act as if they are shocked by the violence. This may have been carried out by an extremist group, but the Muslims in Somalia, Libya, Egypt, and all the rest, allow this to happen day in and day out. Their silent consent has allowed this to happen and now, they’ll want some kind of aid from the U.S. I say screw them all. They brought this on themselves, let them live with the consequences. Of course the leftists here and the Muslim scum here won’t say a word against these “terrorists”. Their silence is their consent and condoning this act!

    • “…the Muslims in Somalia, Libya, Egypt, and all the rest, allow this…”? Well, but wait. (1) X% of Muslims actually respect hard-core jihadism, don’t do it themselves, but might support it behind the lines. (2) Sociology 101: to argue and move against jihadism in a traditional Muslim society–as I understand it (perhaps erroneously), you’d be risking “informal social control” (shunning or much worse) by your “reference group.” Is this two-part idea of mine, correct? [[[[[ Amazingly, I’d like to know and explore. It’s just that old “civil discourse” etc. that was “free speech” some time ago in some area called Western, I don’t know… ]]]]]

  5. I think you are asking if this would be difficult to speak out against jihadist in a Muslim country. I believe, that it would, but these nations are largely uneducated Muslims and probably just trying to get by day to day. I was referring to Muslims in other nations, such as so called moderates in the U.S., Canada, and Europe. They sit by silently, supporting CAIR and the Muslim Brotherhood with their donations, while this violence continues unchecked. If islam was truly a peaceful religion, these moderates in the Western world would stop donating to, and supporting known terrorist organizations. They would also be loud and outspoken ranting against these bombings and violence around the world. Instead, they continue with donations and unspoken consent by doing nothing!

    • Yup. People seem to forget some key facts about Islam:
      The ones now labeled ” Radical Muslims ” want to kill non Muslims in support of Islam. This is about 15-25% of Muslims.
      The ones now labeled ” Moderate Muslims ” want the ones labeled Radical to kill Non Muslims in support of Islam. This is about 25-50% of Muslims.
      The ones now labeled ” Conservative or Peaceful Muslims ” want to support Islam. About 25-50% of Muslims. However, Over 75% of all Muslims want Sharia Law and Islam to rule which means 75% of the 1.2 Billion Muslims want Non Muslim killed or forced to live under Islamic Rule. The problem is Islam.

      • You are absolutely correct! Islam is the problem no matter how you look at it. Even Muslims who have been living in the U.S. for more than one generation, and who appear westernized by all accounts, still have stated they believe in sharia law and would support a Caliphate if they were forced to choose. I recently read this in a poll conducted by Rassmussen. Islam is definitely the problem!

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
