"Kill Us All or Leave Them Alone": How Kenyan Muslims Saved Christian Lives

A group of Kenyan Muslims were traveling in the same bus as Christians from the capital Nairobi to the town of Mandera in northern Kenya.

They were ambushed by armed Islamists. The Islamists then asked the Christians and the Muslims to separate into two groups in order to identify the Christians so that they could be murdered.

A local governor reported to Kenyan media that the Muslims on the bus, refusing to split into two groups, told the Islamists:

"Kill us all or leave them alone".

The Somalia-based al-Shabab group is the main suspect in the attack, which still left two dead.

Last April it was the al-Shabab group that killed 148 people at Garissa University, letting the Muslims go and only executing the Christians. Everything seems to indicate that they wanted to reproduce the same scenario here.

A manifestation of unity and solidarity prevented the same gruesome story from happening again! This time the Islamists of al-Shabab left the scene seeing that they would not be able to separate the passengers into two groups and identify which were the Christians.

We can only thank the Lord for the protection of our brothers and sisters who were on this bus and continue to pray for all persecuted Christians in the world. We also salute the courage of those Muslims ready to die themselves to save the lives of the Christians who were with them.
