Default Kenyan Muslims shield Christians in Mandera bus attack

A group of Kenyan Muslims travelling on a bus ambushed by Islamist gunmen protected Christian passengers by refusing to be split into groups, according to eyewitnesses.

They told the militants "to kill them together or leave them alone", a local governor told Kenyan media.

Occasionally there is some good news in the news.

-- hey, all you folks (including but unfortunately not limited to certain USA politicians and would-be politicians) trying to divide Muslims from everybody else: here's an excellent example of one of the reasons why that's a bad idea.

That's what I thought, and wondered if this would get the publicity it deserves. That really took some courage, and people standing up not only for individuals, but for the kind of world they want to live in.
