Israeli advisers helping Kenya in mall siege: security source

from Reuters (H/T Brian)

Israeli advisers are helping Kenya formulate a strategy to end a siege at a Nairobi shopping mall where Islamist militants have killed at least 59 people and are holding hostages, an Israeli security source said on Sunday.

“There are Israeli advisers helping with the negotiating strategy, but no Israelis involved in any imminent storming operation,” said the source, who declined to be identified.

The source said only a “handful” of Israelis, “purely in an advisory role”, were on scene at the upscale Westgate shopping center, which has several Israeli-owned outlets and is frequented by expatriates and Kenyans.

An Israeli source in Nairobi said all Israelis who were in the mall at the time of the attack had made it out safely, with the last three rescued overnight.

There were conflicting reports from other security sources in Nairobi about the part Israel was playing.

One Kenyan security source, who asked not to be identified, told Reuters that the Israeli military was involved in the operation, while a private security official also said they were helping comb the mall.

But the Kenyan Interior Minister insisted it was a national operation, despite offers of foreign support.

  1. This is the same exact script as the Mumbai attacks…

    Somali “terrorists are implicated within the day, which is the new chapter in the book called “Wes Clark Seven”

    We’re going to take out seven countries in five years, starting with Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and, finishing off, Iran.

    The timing is a little off.. I guess they were counting on a quick Syria back then… But the list is the list.

  2. Hey Scott,

    Willy Whitten here. I thought you might have some distant interest in this…I just read the Gumwall at COTO, and saw that your argument with JerseyGirl and the one I recently had with same, is so similar as to knock on wood and say yoiksa.

    I ain’t Coto no more. jersygirl – er make that, Nurse JG Rached took it upon her control freak self to purge two of my pages from the blog, after many of the same spurious accusations that you and Cinderman were accosted with. I won’t go into the bloody details of this, but I will say that the site has turned into a ‘Groupthink’ batch of twatsniff’s that I no longer want to be around. I am not officially banned ‘yet’, but I no longer make commentary there. Their idea of what “Free Speech” is, is far from mine, and I can no longer countenance the blatant despotism there.

    Glad to see your site here is flourishing.

    • Hi hybridrogue1

      Good to hear from you. I can’t say that I had forgotten all about that episode over there, but it’s been ages hasn’t it? I check out COTO every now and then though. Still have some decent posts every now and then and I do appreciate going through the comment sections. And one reason for that is your comments.

      Needless to say, it’s unfortunate that it turned out the way it did.

      I wonder if people are just getting scared these days. Many of my older regular commenters seem to gone or at least they aren’t leaving comments anymore. Cinderman is an example as a matter of fact. You can hardly blame them with all the scare-mongering dredged up by the Edwardo Snowjob psyop. If I had half a brain I would probably stop doing this stuff myself.

      Sorry the COTO thing turned on you as well.

      Yeah, I’m still plugging along. Good to hear from you. You’re always welcome here.

      • “If I had half a brain I would probably stop doing this stuff myself.”

        If they haven’t got your number by now Scott…{grin}..what follows that statement is so redundant I need not repeat it.

        I should think you and I and most of our acquaintances are all proud top of the red list alumni by now.

        Real Fear is for the Elite, who quiver in their darkness for the eventual blowback — Scrooge’s dreams got more horrific as the nights passed.

        • WW, saying everyone on the site has turned into a “Groupthink’ batch of twatsniff’s” because of the “row”, and now you’re not contributing out of free choice…that’s a stretch. Its not cool to lump everybody as a chump and then split. Anyways, Mr. Scott’s blog is a good one.

          • Boomer,

            Scott has had his own history with the despotic ‘Coto Queen’…

            I have no interest in “cool” Garth. Anyone who blindly follows this tyrannical nanny thread monitor is indeed a twatsniff. You don’t like that opinion? No doubt…Lol

            I know you don’t like being a subject in the ‘Big Sister is Watching You’ experiment; that you were so grateful was “flushed” down the Memory Hole by your glorious leader. But that flushing only occurred on coto, and there is a world wide web that you now have to deal with.

            It is NOT a matter of my not contributing out of “free choice” on coto, why don’t you snap out of your trance and face the facts pal?

            Enough of this for Scott’s blog. You want to bitch, do it on coto.

  4. Psyops at Westgate Mall
    http://disturbinganomalies.blogspot.ca/2013/09/the-attack-on-westgate-mall.html

    –A little-known fact is that the neighborhood of Westgate Mall is also home to the Kenyan headquarters of the USAID. The CIA, MI6 and Mossad are all very active in Kenya.

    –The ‘bogeywoman’ of the attack is reportedly Samantha Lewthwaite, a leader figure of Al Shabaab. She is known as the “white widow” because her late husband happens to be Germaine Lindsay of the 7/7 patsy quartet. She is the daughter of a British army officer and the two met at school run by the intelligence services of Great Britain.

    –The attack was carried out on the eve of the autumnal equinox (9/22) and lasted through it. The targets were, in code, the names of Masonic lodges in Charlotte, North Carolina.

  5. Israel at the Westgate Mall
    Israel at the Westgate MallThe terrorists rented a shop in the Israeli owned Westgate shopping mall in Nairobi , which was later stormed by Israeli commandos working with the Kenyan military, acting as lead advisors. Three floors in the mall collapsed, although it is not reported that the terrorists employed demolition ordnance. No security videos of the terrorists or their actions are yet available. It is reported that Israel has had a decade long plus security relationship with the government in Kenya.
    No reports yet on the insurance carrier for the collapsed Israeli owned and secured mall.

    17.08 The militants are believed to have rented a shop in the complex to gain full access to the Israeli-owned plaza.
    The gunmen were able to closely study the shopping centre as tenants, a move reflected in their well-planned operation, according to Kenyan security forces quoted in the IB Times.
    The group said that it targeted the mall because it was home to a number of Jewish and American premises. Police and witnesses said the insurgents appeared to possess full knowledge of the layout of the mall.

  6. I regularly listen to No Agenda podcast, which I occasionally mention (and recommend) here at AE.

    Less than a week before the Nairobi attacks, some listeners of the show who were stationed in Nairobi (we do not know at what capacity) had let Adam Curry know that something was bubbling in Nairobi. At the time, during the show, this piece of info was found peculiar since everyone was guessing the next thing that popped would happen in Somalia. Shortly after, the Nairobi attacks took place.

    During yesterday’s show, there was mention of another piece of info from the same source, which was that the actual attackers had left the mall almost immediately during the initial commotion, and that they had rigged many areas with remote and/or timer controlled firearms and explosives to give the impression that they were fighting back, and holding hostages.

    I know, I know… This is just a “sources say” kind of reporting, and I am not able to provide any links except for the podcast itself. So take it with a grain of salt…
