Al-Jazerra is reporting that this is a Mumbi type of thing in that the attack was terror just for the sake of terror.

Your second sentence does not say what you meant to say.

Apparently the various Countries in the World are not fed up with the sort of thing that is happened in Kenya to do much about it.

How often does this happen? What is the worldwide risk of death from Islamic terrorism vs getting killed crossing the street?

Religion is the problem - yesterday it was christians, today its muslims, tomorrow it will be something else. But yes, islam seems to be overtaken by lunatics.

The community/religion does not seem to be doing enough to stop this madness either.

You're are slow to answer Sloride. But it gave me some more time to think about it and then it got to me; this already comes to towns near us, the last one was on a navy shipyard just a week ago. So what do you think we should do about it Sloride?
