    NAIROBI - Somalia's al Shabaab Islamists said they staged an attack in Kenya on Saturday in which gunmen ordered non-Muslims off a bus and shot 28 dead, while sparing Muslim passengers.

    Three of the group led out to be killed saved their lives by reciting verses of the Qur'an for the militants, a local security official said.

    Al Shabaab said its men had ambushed the Nairobi-bound bus outside Mandera town, near Kenya's border with Somalia and Ethiopia, and killed the non-Muslims in retaliation for raids on mosques in the port city of Mombasa.

    Early this week, police in Mombasa shot dead a man and arrested over 376 others when they searched four mosques in the port city that they said were being used to recruit militants and stash weapons.

    "The Mujahideen successfully carried out an operation near Mandera early this morning, which resulted in the perishing of 28 crusaders, as a revenge for the crimes committed by the Kenyan crusaders against our Muslim brethren in Mombasa," Sheikh Ali Mohamud Rage, al Shabaab's spokesman, said in a statement.

    Islamist militants use the term "crusaders" to describe Christians or non-Muslims in general.

    KILLERS HEAD FOR BORDER

    Police Inspector General David Kimaiyo told reporters that 19 men and nine women were killed. "Preliminary reports indicate that the attackers, who were heavily armed, later fled towards the border into Somali," he said.

    A witness to the ambush, who asked not to be identified, said the attackers boarded the bus and tried to identify Muslims and non-Muslims.

    Ahmed Maalim, an official at the Mandera East sub-county security force, said the attackers ordered passengers thought to be non-Muslims out of the bus. Three were spared after reciting verses from the Qur'an and ordered back on the bus.

    "The women and men (remaining outside) were separated, then shot at close range. None survived," he said.

    In response to the attack, Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) launched ground and air raid and destroyed a camp believed to have been used by the attackers.

    "The KDF operation will continue until they arrest the attackers," said Col. David Obonyo, KDF spokesman.

    Al Shabaab claimed responsibility for a 2013 attack on Nairobi's Westgate shopping mall that killed at least 67 people and attacks in Lamu in June and July that killed at least 65.

    The group has vowed to drive Kenyan and other African Union peacekeeping troops out of Somalia.

    Saturday's attack showed al Shabaab remains able to strike both in Somalia and abroad despite the killing of its leader Ahmed Abdi Godane in September.

    The Mandera region is awash with guns due to its proximity to Somalia, where al Shabaab has been fighting to topple the government, and Ethiopia, whose armed Oromo Liberation Front has made incursions into Kenya.

    Insecurity plagues East Africa's biggest economy, prompting Western nations to issue travel warnings and hitting the tourism industry, a major source of hard currency.

    Cliff Notes
    • Islam is considered to be created by the prophet Muhammad when the angel Gabriel came to him and spoke the first revelations to him around 622CE.
    • Some of the most important people in Islam history would be the prophet Muhammad, Khadijah bint Khuwaylid who was Muhammad’s first wife and the first person to accept his prophet hood, Imam Ali Abi Talib who was Muhammad’s successor and the first male to accept Islam, and Fatimah bint Muhammad’s daughter who is one of the “Four Women of Paradise”.
    • The most important religious text in Islam is the Quran. The Quran means “The recitation”. The Quran was made into book shortly after the Prophet Muhammad’s death. The Quran is believed to be the word of God by Muslims. The Quran is composed of 114 chapters (also called suras).
    • The Five Pillars of Islam are basically the principles of Islam. The Five pillars are as followed Shahada or witnessing that Allah is one and Muhammad is his messenger, Salah which means Prayer, Zakah which is obligatory charity, Sawm which is fasting, and Hajj which is the pilgrimage.
    • Islam is considered to begin in Arabia in the Middle East (now known as Saudi Arabia). Arabia is where Muhammad spent all of his life trying to spread the word of the Quran. Islam did not spread rapidly until Muhammad’s death.
    • According to numerous historical sources, women played a major role in the early days of Islam as they supposedly helped Muhammad in the spreading of Islam. Certain parts of the Quran specify that a woman is to be a servant to men and that their job is in a sense to please the man.
    • Islamic architecture derives originally from Iranian or Persian architecture from its ancient times. Typically Islamic architecture can be seen primarily through mosques, tombs, palaces, forts, or other Islamic government facilities.
    • Islamic art is typically seen through calligraphy, this is because most Muslims think it is not appropriate to have images of sacred prophets, so people are not typically portrayed in Islamic art.
    • Mecca was considered a strong city used for trade in which numerous people came in and left taking the Islamic culture with them. The most significant aspect of Islamic spread was how the Muslims conquered much land using quick and violent methods, forcing everyone to convert. However, they gave the people the option to not convert, but those who did not convert had to pay a tax.
    • Islam and Judaism are the same in the sense that they are both monotheistic as well as Abrahamic religions. However, Islam has about 1.4 billion adherents whereas Judaism only has about 15 million. Islam is the 2nd largest religious belief in the world, and Judaism falls in at 12th place.
    • The religion has billions of adherents composing about 1/6 of the world's population. It is also because of the Holy Wars or Crusades in which the Christians attempted to take the Holy Land back from the Muslims. This is regarded as one of the most violent times in history resulting in numerous wars based off religion, primarily through the Catholic Church and Islam. Throughout the course of our modern history, the largest impact Islam has left on the world is arguably the conflict that has arose, not from Islam alone, but how religions have interacted with it as well as others. Conflicts in which we still see today by nations across the globe caused by disagreement which have led to wars, government issues, and even acts of terror from all sides.

    Put that to memory..............heaven help us.........

    Sand-people easily scare, but they'll soon be back, and in greater numbers.
