Why do we keep seeing so much jihad terrorism? Because it works. If it didn’t work, if non-believers didn’t kowtow and cower and curtail their activities in response to it, jihadists wouldn’t pursue it.
“Kenya: Teachers to stay home following deadly terrorist attack (03 December 2014),” Education International, December 3, 2014:
The Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT), affiliated to Education International (EI), has condemned the shocking attack in the Mandera county that left 22 teachers dead early on 22 Nov. At least 28 people were executed by Al Shabaab militias after hijacking a Nairobi-bound bus.
“I call upon all teachers working in Northern Kenya and whose actual residence belongs to other counties to return to their respective counties, and await to be redeployed to other schools within their county of birth by the Teacher Service Commission (TSC),” said KNUT Secretary General Wilson Sossion.
He was particularly addressing all teachers working in unstable areas such as Kapedo, Turkana, Samburu, and northern parts of Kenya. Most schools had already closed for the December holidays.
“KNUT will not sit and watch the union lose all its teachers to bandits, militia, and other outlawed sects in the country,” Sossion added. “We want the TSC to act and protect the teachers it employs.”
Call for key resignations
The killings prompted the union to demand the disbandment of top security organs in the country. It also called for the immediate resignation of the Cabinet Secretary for Interior and Coordination of National Government, Joseph Ole Lenku, and of the Inspector General of Police, David Kimaiyo, for their failure to comply and act immediately on intelligence provided to them.
Among the 28 killed people were 19 men and nine women, of whom the majority came from Western parts of Kenya. Twenty-six bodies have already been identified by relatives….
