On Christmas Eve Muslims attacked Christians attending a Catholic Christmas celebration in the German city of Mönchengladbach-Rheydt. The five Muslims forced their way into the St. Mary’s Church shouting, “F*cking Christians.”
Police arrested two youths.
Atlas Shrugged reported:
Muslim children and a teenager disturbed the nativity celebrations for children in the Rheydter St. Mary’s Church. The Muslims screamed, Sh*t Christians!” and, “F*cking Christians!” during the Christmas Eve mass. The sexton held two of the five Muslims before police arrived. Police identified the troublemakers and turned them over to their parents. Police would not say whether it was a deliberate action to disrupt worship on Christmas Eve or a thoughtless prank children in the incident.
(Reuters) – Eight Islamist gunmen infiltrated the main African Union (AU) base in Mogadishu on Thursday and killed three peacekeepers and a civilian contractor, the AU mission in Somalia said.
Somali militant group al Shabaab claimed responsibility for the attack, which lasted several hours, and said it had killed 14 peacekeepers. Witnesses reported hearing bomb blasts and volleys of gunfire through the day.
“We targeted the enemies at a time they were celebrating Christmas,” Sheikh Abdiasis Abu Musab, al Shabaab’s military operations spokesman, told Reuters.
The al Qaeda-aligned militants want to topple the Western-backed Mogadishu government and describe AU troops as “Christian enemies”. The Islamist group also wants to impose its own strict version of sharia law in the country.
