Over the past few days, the world has been reminded of the dangers of terrorism born from radical Islam. The first attack happened at a busy shopping center in Nairobi, Kenya where a Somali terror group with links to Al Qaeda killed at least 60 people and took many more hostage. At present, it seems that at least 5 and perhaps as many as 10 of the terrorists were American citizens.
The second attack came in the form of twin suicide bombings at an All Saints Church, which is a Christian church in Peshawar, Pakistan. The terrorist group responsible for this is also Al Qaeda linked with headquarters in Palestinian territory. This attack killed at least 120 people. The reason for the attack is said to be because of American drone strikes in Pakistan.
These recent attacks only echo the mindset behind terrorist groups such as Al Qaeda, the Muslim Brotherhood, and all radical Islamic terrorist organizations.
This year alone we have witnessed the barbarism of an Al Qaeda rebel fighter in Syria cutting the heart out of a government soldier and eating it. (WARNING: The following videos are graphic in nature)
