We live in the era of the anti-Christian pogrom. The slaughter at Garissa University College in Kenya that killed nearly 150 people last week was the latest example of the bloodlust.
Usually, such mass-casualty attacks are indiscriminate, but the killers of the Somali-based al-Shabab terror group sought to be exacting during their all-day assault on the largely Christian university.
A student told The Associated Press, "If you were a Christian, you were shot on the spot."

Kenya shopping mall attack: Nairobi hostages were tortured before they were killed, says police doctor
A police doctor scouring Nairobi?s Westgate mall for bodies after a four-day siege by Islamist gunmen that claimed dozens of lives has said victims were tortured before they died, according to a Kenyan newspaper.
?Those are not allegations. Those are f****** truths,? the doctor, a forensics expert, told The Star newspaper. ?They removed balls, eyes, ears, nose. They get your hand and sharpen it like a pencil then they tell you to write your name with the blood. They drive knives inside a child?s body. Actually, if you look at all the bodies, unless those ones that were escaping, fingers are cut by pliers, the noses are ripped by pliers.?

The move came after an audacious attack by al-Shabaab gunmen, who stole into a tented labourers? camp 10 miles from Mandera, a town on the Somali border, in the early hours of this morning, singling out non-Muslims and shooting them at pointblank range. Witnesses said that at least two of the workers were beheaded.
