Kenya: More fun and games from the Religion of Peace.

Terror Alert for Kenya Athletes
"The World Cross Country Championships due to take place in Kenya this month could be the target of a possible terrorist attack, the US has warned. The US Embassy in Kenya said extremists might launch an unspecified attack during the marathon race on 24 March."

Guess who?
"The US embassy is also aware of public statements by leaders of Kenya's coastal Muslim community threatening to disrupt the world cross country championships through unspecified means,.."

Jizya time?
"Officials say Internal Security Minister John Michuki will be meeting Muslim leaders in Mombasa next week ahead of the world championships. The Council of Imams and Preachers of Kenya (CIPK) warned that they would disrupt the event in response to alleged harassment of Muslims by the Kenyan police. "We are going to have a very big demonstration during that time to show the world that Muslims are marginalised in Kenya," said Sheikh Mohammed Dor, the council's secretary-general."

The last time some Muslims felt marginalized in Kenya: 1998's Embassy bombing.
