    By ALLY JAMAH
    KENYA: Muslim leaders have strongly condemned the terror attack by the Al-Shabaab, terming them barbaric terrorists who do not represent the religion or its faithful.
    Leaders of major Muslim organisations said the Somali-based militia was trying to spark sectarian conflict between Kenyans of different faiths by claiming they are acting on behalf of Muslims and Islam.
    Secretary-General of the Supreme Council of Kenya Muslims Adan Wachu said the wanton and indiscrimate killings of innocent men, women and children goes against all Islamic teachings and tenets.
    Mombasa Senator Hassan Omar said it was the height of deception for the killers to suggest they were targeting non-Muslims only.
    Al Amin Kimathi, convenor of the National Muslim Human Rights Forum, said the government should pursue the terrorists robustly, terming their actions indefensible and reprehensible.
    Others who condemned the attack were Ustadh Juma Ngao of the Kenya Muslim National Advisory Council, National Muslim Leaders’ Forum Vice Chair Yusuf Murigu, Fazul Mahamed of the Association of Muslim Organisations of Kenya, Sheikh Khalfan Khamis of Majlis Ulamaa Kenya and Abdul Bary Hamid, Jamia Mosque’s secretary general.

    The caption says “World’s Muslim Leaders”, not "Kenyan Muslim Leaders. Are there no Muslim Leaders in the rest of the world? Can you find quotes from them? Thanks.

    Your comment doesn’t really deserve a reply, but the answer is Yes:

    Members of Minnesota’s Somali community expressed shock and grief at the attack on a shopping mall in Nairobi, Kenya that has claimed 62 lives and left as many as 175 wounded.

    Imam Abdisalam Adam was first to speak at today’s news conference saying the Somali community in Minnesota strongly condemns the “outrageous acts of violence” which he said has no value or place in Islam. He stressed that “these extremes do harm to Islam,” and told the gathering that “the safety and security of the United States is of utmost importance.” The Imam said “Muslims must shun extremism” and he called on all Muslims to have a dialogue on the dangers of extremism and to shed light on what he called “the proper form of Islam.”

    In an impassioned spiritual plea to Muslims, Imam Abdul Hashi said, “This type of activity, the killing of innocents has no basis in, or relationship to Islam,” and he condemned this kind of activities and teachings. He added from the Koran, “Whoever kills one soul, kills all of humankind, and whoever saves one soul, saves all of humankind.”

    You can do the rest of the research for yourself.

    lonecat, you are not going to reach these posters (as I think you know). They have a very narrow view of the events and responses to events from the rest of the world. Do you really think they take the time even to check out Al Jazeera English much less any other non-US source? So how should they know what the rest of the world is saying, much less the diversity of opinion and viewpoints from the rest of the world? You can give them links, you can even put the links in a single click format, but it doesn’t seem to lead them to click and read, much less understand.

    I really don’t expect to get through to the cement heads, but when a cartoon is so misleading (to put it kindly) I think the truth should be shown.

    And that is the reason I don’t usually even look at Gorrell, it’s his MO. I just see it when one of you posts there, and I want to see what and why you said something.

    What absolute bigotry. This cartoon spreads hatred, not “political opinion.”

    Rather early to be condemning anyone for not reacting to an attack that just ended.
