Religion of Peace Claims 3 Americans
A noble warrior of Allah slipped into a Baptist hospital in Yemen today, hiding a gun in his jacket as if cradling a child, and cravenly murdered three American missionaries who had dedicated their lives to helping the people of Yemen.
UPDATE: Reader Solomon X points out a Reuters wire story that quotes the murderer’s confession:
A Yemeni official said Kamel told police he shot them because he believed they were Christian missionaries and he wanted to “cleanse his religion and get closer to God.”
“The gunman confessed to being a member of the Islamic Jihad group and said he shot the Americans because they were preaching Christianity,” the official said, referring to a Yemeni group unrelated to the Palestinian movement also called Islamic Jihad.
Witnesses said Kamel entered the clinic posing as a patient. When his turn came to be treated, he opened fire.
The ministry described Kamel as an “Islamic extremist” and said he was a member of the Islamic opposition Islah Party. But Islah said in a statement he had left the party to join Islamic Jihad because Islah was “too soft against the West and America.”
But I thought building hospitals and day care centers was supposed to make them love us…
