Terror: Kenya PM asks Israel for help

2011-11-14 13:56

Nairobi - Kenya's prime minister is seeking Israel's support in stopping reprisal terror attacks by an al-Qaeda-linked militant group Kenyan troops are pursuing in Somalia.

A government statement on Monday said Prime Minister Raila Odinga asked Israeli President Shimon Peres for assistance in building the capacity of the Kenyan police to deal with attacks by al-Shabaab militants.

Israeli security forces are among the best in the world in dealing with terror threats, but al-Shabaab could view Kenya's request as a provocation.

Kenya last month sent hundreds of troops into Somalia to pursue al-Shabaab, whom it blames for attacks and kidnappings in Kenya. In response, al-Shabaab has threatened to carry out terror attacks in Kenya's capital.

      Shame, these peace loving and innocent little fellows in sandals and robes, are misunderstood. All they want is peace and the non- muslim war mongers respond by wanting to kill them. No in all seriousness, Kenya is on the right track and Israel is the right country to approach for help. Kenya should pursue these barbarian terrorists and should not rest until the last one is wiped out

      @Dirk. How can you say Israel is the right country to ask. Granted they could help but they cannot answer. They need to speak to the USA as Israel is the whore of the USA. Agreed ?

      Barry- I dont think those comment are worthy of a response.

      Barry - 2011-11-15 03:52

      I don't think you want to respond because you know my statement is true.

      Barry - rubbish. Israel is the most appropriate power to ask for help. They have the most successful anti-terror approach. Obviously the USA will assist, but can't be seen to.

      @Iamn.. Exactly. Israel is USA's whore.

    Aint going to score points from the AU bruthas, they would rather you sat back and took in on the chin than use Zionists to help protect your people.

      Maybe the Kenyan Prime Minister should ask the AU for help? He will get nothing but rhetoric. The man understands more about international problems than you Paas.

    He is asking the people who have the expertise. Who better to ask than Israel?

      @Barry I wish guys like you would make up your minds. I thought it was supposed to be the Jews who control the USA.
