Muslims shield Christian passengers in attack on Kenyan bus

December 23, 2015

Christian leaders hailed Muslims for their bravery and selflessness Tuesday after they shielded Christians from suspected al-Shabab gunmen who attacked a passenger bus.

The gunmen sprayed the bus with bullets Monday, killing two. But when they asked the Muslim passengers to help identify the Christian passengers, they told the militants to kill everyone or leave. The Associated Press reported Muslims also helped dress non-Muslim passengers in scarfs to try to conceal their identity.

Defeated, the militants left hurriedly, according to witnesses.

The gesture is uniting Christians and Muslims in the county, which lies in the country’s north along the border with Somalia.

    Too bad but this just isn’t beleivable

    I can see muslims protecting Christians. In Syria, before we started the war with Assad, Muslims and Christians lived in harmony in the same towns. That is the reason we went in to destabilize Syria, like we did in Iraq and Libya. Syria was not fundamental crazed out muslims, that is why we had to go in and destroy them. The only problem with this story is that they did not fully report the events that transpired…typical.

  • reggie says:

    As usual, only half the story. From nation (dot) co (dot) ke. “…He went on: “As the attackers started separating passengers according to their religions, we heard the sound of an oncoming lorry. They all ran back into the bush thinking it was police. After realizing it was not police, they stopped the lorry as we dashed back into the bus and sped off.”

  • Bernie Lounds says:

    Islam is not a religion, but a cult.It needs to throw the Quran in the gutter where it belongs and pick up the Holy Bible And the find Jesus Christ.I don’t believe any book that says you should kill no-believers is a bible.

  • Faithful American says:

    There are SEVERAL possibilities here: maybe these MUSLIMS have been watching CHRISTIAN TV in Africa, and perhaps SECRETLY CONVERTED so were actually CHRISTIANS dressed in MUSLIM garb, or ELSE they COULD have been ANGELS from GOD dressed in MUSLIM garb to PROTECT the CHRISTIANS. God is so FAITHFUL!

    Finally, accountability, if we can believe everything we hear.

      Or read, and we can’t!

      NDAA 2013, Smith-Throneberry amendment. Domestic propaganda is now legal.

    A load of crap….

    1. reggie says:

      It was only 1/2 right, as usual. Everyone was being separated, when a truck came down the road. the group thought it was cops, so they ran and hid. When they saw it was a truck, they stopped it as well. In the meantime, everyone jumped back on the bus and left. Taken from the Kenya Daily Nation. Even the original article contradicts itself.

  • Dave N. says:

    I’ve done some reading recently about Islamic fundamentalists to better understand what and why they do the things they do. Putting this together with previous actions that I’m aware of this doesn’t fit. They would have slaughtered everyone without thought or hesitation, particularly the Muslim’s protecting Christians, I seriously question this story.

    1. USNavyPatriot says:

      I agree. Islamic terrorists kill Muslims all the time without hesitation.

  • jimdarnall says:

    Sounds all like phony bunch of baloney. We know terrorists kill Muslims that are either Christians or sympathetic to Christians.It happens all the time. It is hard to believe the terrorists left for that reason. Have those that were Christian been interviewed?

    1. bobnstuff says:

      There is a lot of coverage of this and it did happen. Islam peaches caring for strangers. You need to remember that main stream Islam is a religion of peace.

      1. nonstopca says:

        Yea….Yea….Yea — YOU go ahead and believe that…….as they cut YOUR head off…

        1. bobnstuff says:

          My guess is you know nothing about Islam and have never spent time with a Muslim. I have.

      2. KDC says:

        Cough, cough…just like your comnents, huh? Who are you trying to kid?

        1. bobnstuff says:

          Morning KDC, This isn’t the first news story of Muslims protecting non Muslims. You should know better to judge a whole religion by the actions of a extreme wing. The KKK is a Christian group. All Christians are like the KKK, right? You also know that the ISIL group are killing Muslims in greater numbers then any other group.

          1. KDC says:

            Well, let’s see. If Christians were reading in the bible, hate, destruction, murder, sadism then yes, I would feel the same thing about all of them too. One should turn their back on evil and not participate in any way which would include reading a book that promoted these atrocities like the Quran. So I don’t see any Muslims doing that with their idiology.

            If the KKK were a Christian group, which they aren’t, I would feel the same way. You have to watch out because many say they are Christians, but don’t have a personal relationship with Christ. They never took that step. So anyone like the KKK who does evil things is in opposition to what Christ teaches. So they are not born again believers.

          2. bobnstuff says:

            If you read the Old Testament you will find hate, destruction, sadism are all there along with a lot of other things like selling your daughter and killing your son. In fact most of the things that are in the Quran about killing non believers were lifted right out of the Old Testament. The ancient Jews made ISIL look like pikers. Just like most Christians don’t follow the old testament most Muslims don’t kill non believers. The thing to remember is ISIL is to Islam what the KKK is to the Christian world, Islam preaches hospitality and charity even more so the Christians. A true follower of Islam will treat his neighbor with respect no matter their faith. For some reason, political I’m sure, Islam is very misrepresented in our country. Since the fall of the USSR we have been looking for a villain and Islam has become it. The powers that be need an enemy to get use to give money for arms. Most of the wars we have fought since WW II have been to enrich the military industrial Complex.

            KKK was started by democraps. Get off the christian rant.

          4. KDC says:

            You don’t know what you’re talking about. Old Testament Judaism is no way near the exploits of the Muslims and their Quran. Sadism? From Jews? No way. They were under Mosaic law. They abide by the Ten Commandments, first off. Excuse me, most people, Christians and others, follow the Ten Commandments.
            Boy, I don’t know where you come up with your information. Everything you say is contrary to what is said even in the media. And quit referring the KKK to Christians. That’s a liberal creation against blacks. Nothing to do with Christianity. You talk about looking for a villain, well if the Muslims would stop their war against humanity and stop the murder, torture and other physical atrocities that they do, then perhaps they would be viewed in a different light. I have a problem with the “so called” good Muslims who sit by and watch their brothers commit these deplorable acts, and do nothing. The idiology of Islam is the same for all Muslims, right? Well, there ya go!

          5. bobnstuff says:

            Read some of the history of the Jews before the time of Christ. These were not people who you would like as neighbors. The Jews were one of the fiercest fighting forces of there time and would kill every man woman and child.

          6. KDC says:

            WASHINGTON – ISIS has reportedly approved the harvesting of body parts for organ transplant, adding to the list of the Islamic State’s sanctioned atrocities.
            Reuters reported the U.S. government has obtained documents in which Islamic scholars outline the rules for taking body parts and for rape.

          7. bobnstuff says:

            I can come up with a Biblical scholar to sanction almost anything. Does that mean it’s right?

          8. reggie says:

            KKK started by democraps to keep black from voting.

          9. reggie says:

            The KKK was started by democraps.

          10. KDC says:

            Wrong! KKK is NOT a Christian group. Where in earth, did you ever get that idea?

          11. KDC says:

            They “BELIEVE” themselves to be Christian? Did you ever hear of lying? That whole thing Is against every Christian doctrine the bible teaches. Read the bible for yourself, then you’ll see. Until you do, you’ll be saying stupid stuff like that because you don’t know.
            ISIS follows what the Quran says. Case closed.

          12. bobnstuff says:

            So is turning your back on the needy and the poor against Christian doctrine but the so called Christian Right has not problem with it. We are rejecting refugees who need our help because we are afraid. No where in the Bible does it say God helps those that help themselves. It’s how we treat others that proves our faith. It’s easy for the so called good Christian to support hate for others who don’t believe dogma that they do.. ISIL does not follow Islam any more the the KKK follows Christ but you want to believe they do so you can sit back and do nothing to help their victims. You believe what you are told. I have been aware of what Islam teaches long before ISIL or even the first Gulf war. We as a country have allies that are Muslim. There are brave members of our military that are Muslims, In fact as a percentage of the population Muslim serve in our armed forces more then most. As far as reading the Bible I would say I’m pretty well versed since I read Biblical Greek and am a ordained minister.

          13. KDC says:

            We should be rejecting these people for the safety and well being of American and the citizens. The nation comes first. We should be setting up safe zones in their country or nearby countries, then help by supplying them with the necessities of life. ISIS does not follow Islam? Boy, you’ll say just about anything, won’t you?. You better mention that to the media and the administration, because they have it wrong, then, too. Those Muslims that serve in our military and some others, who came here to America, have assimilated haven’t they. ( not a ques.) As for being ordained, well you could have fooled me. Head knowledge with the things of God is not what God wants and I’ve seen some discrepancies in your statements and thinking. God wants circumcision of heart not just going through the motions.

          14. bobnstuff says:

            We should all hide under our beds like the cowards we as a nation have become. We come first before giving aid to others. When people who go to aid ISIL have to buy Islam for dummies you can be pretty sure the don’t understand Islam. The President has said it over and over but the fools and the war mongers on the right are to greedy to care and people like you just go along. God want and open and giving heart, we are to put others needs before our own. Christ didn’t say check to see if a person is a Christian before you help them. Faith active in love.Love for all. It’s truly amazing just how little it take for the so called Christian right to reject Christs teachings for their own comfort and safety. Why is Canada taking in refugees when we aren’t Even the French are showing us up but we are no longer the home of the brave, The French are.

          15. KDC says:

            I disagree. There is a time to be wise as serpents. Most coming over ARE NOT refugees. Btw who says we aren’t taking refugees? BO, your buddy, has introduced so many illegals and refugees we cannot sustain them. I have a suggestion, move to France, the new homes of the brave. So how’s that working out for France? Not so good, huh?

          16. bobnstuff says:

            You seem to have a little problem with the facts of the matter. The borders are more secure today then at any time and with no help from the congress. Had the republicans passed the immigration bill they would be even more secure but the republicans don’t want to closed the borders, they just want to see how much they can blame on the president. The number of illegals in the country is going down not up. We are the richest country in the world and you are whining that we can’t afford to do what other much poorer countries are doing. Maybe if we taxed the rich we could do what is right but the republican still believe in trickle down economics. I call cowards cowards and selfish fat cats just that. The republican right is a bunch of self centered cowards that have no problem sending young men to die for oil but won’t help those in need here our in greater world. I guess you like being ripped of and don’t care if the air isn’t breathable and the water can’t be drank. You trust faceless corporations to do the right thing but are afraid of the elected government. Stupid sheep that will believe anything you are told. Go hid in fear but remember you are not safe, it’s not the illegals or your terrorists that you have to worry about, its your food and water that will get you if the right wing get there way.

          17. KDC says:

            Are you in another country? The borders are not secure. No immigration bill, it’s detrimental to the soverignty and welfair of America and its citizens. I can’t talk to anyone who says such STUPID things like the republicans wanting to blame poor BO. He’s a traitor in my eyes and in the eyes of many. Let men enlighten your puny brain. Liberal/progressives AND Est.Rep. are in the same corrupt tank. Wake up! I don’t belong to either side, nor do I trust either side. Nor will I vote for either side. But guess what? You’ll vote for your corrupt Liberal party, won’t you!

          18. bobnstuff says:

            You don’t know what’s in the bill because you have never read it. To be very honest I know the borders will never be secure and anyone who claims they can be is truly stupid. Look at a map and tell me how you seal all the borders. Closing the Mexican border would do very little and you can’t close the coasts. You notice no one even talks about closing the border with Canada. Obama pulled agents from the Canadian border for the Mexican border but there still are not enough. The Republicans set out in the beginning of Obama’s presidency by saying they would block everything. Over the past seven years they have done everything they could to damage him even voting against their own bills if they could help him. I would think that people that put politics first and the countries needs second might be the traitors. The conservatives Saint Reagan had 134 people indicted in his administration, how many has Obama had? If you keep a score card you would find that the Republicans have some real problems with their record which is why they are attacking Obama so much.

      No, they left because they heard a lorry (truck), thought it was the police. They hid, then stopped the lorry. In the meantime, the passengers jumped back on the bus and left. Full article in the Kenya Daily Nation.
