Several children were among those massacred. Some of those killed were executed after failing to recite a Muslim prayer at gunpoint.
It's likely the Shahada, which is the Islamic assertion of religious supremacism. It's why Muslims kill and it stands to reason that it's the prayer that the Jihadists would ask their victims to recite.
Several children were among those massacred by al Qaeda-linked terrorists armed with guns and grenades. Some of those killed were executed after failing to recite a Muslim prayer at gunpoint.
One image showed a dead child cuddled up to his dead mother inside a car. Other pictures showed a bloodied woman being wheeled out of the mall in a shopping trolley.
This wasn't about a protest. This was about killing non-Muslims. That's what every terrorist attack is really about.
Ms Ahmed said the attackers released people who were able to prove they could speak Arabic.
"I witnessed a few people get up and say something in Arabic and the gunmen let them go.
"A colleague of mine said he was Muslim and recited something in Arabic and they let him go as well.
"I saw a lot of children and elderly people being shot dead.
"I don’t understand why you would shoot a five-year-old child.
Because the child was a non-Muslim. It's the same reason the Nazis killed five-year-old children. Islam is inherently tribal. It's about either enslaving outsiders or killing them if they resist.
Non-Muslims are not people. So Muslims kill them. It's that simple. The Shahada, that the Muslim terrorists no doubt asked them to recite, is "There is no god but Allah, Mohammed is the messenger of Allah."
Either you believe that. Or they kill you.
That is the clash of civilizations summarized in one bloody moment.
