Kenya: Islamic Radical Attacks Against Christians are Getting More Frequent and Intense


By Michael Carl – “Attacks on Christians are surging in Kenya, and analysts say Islamic radicals are putting a bull’s-eye on the community.

International Christian Concern’s Middle East specialist Aidan Clay says he recently visited a victim of a Somali mob attack in Kenya.

‘When I saw him a month after the incident, he was still badly bruised, could hardly see out of his right eye which was black, and was missing teeth,’ Clay said.

Clay said the attacks are getting more frequent and more intense.

‘Recently, there has been a slight surge of violence targeting Christians inside Kenya, provoked mainly by Somali Muslims, some of whom are likely from the militant group al-Shabaab,’ Clay said.

‘It appears that the Islamist militants are not only targeting crowded areas and tourists, but also narrowed in on a Kenyan Christian community,’ he said.

Recently, a Somali Christian man living in Kenya was beaten unconscious by Somali mobs inside Kenyan territory.

Christian news agency Compass Direct, which reports persecution of Christians, reported that a gang of seven Somali Muslims accused 23-year-old Ibrahim (his last name was withheld for security) of apostasy, then left him for dead. It happened only a few weeks after a similar attack on his brother.

Reports also say that Ibrahim was raised as a Christian, so the charge of apostasy has no legal grounds.

Clay said the attack victim he saw “was followed home by six Somali Muslims who had overheard the young man saying on the phone that he is Christian.”

‘They beat him unconscious, nearly killing him, and dropped him off, bleeding and naked, outside a Presbyterian church in Nairobi. The guards outside the church took him to the hospital and his life was spared,’ Clay said.” Read more.
