  1. “The Islamic militant group al-Shabaab said it executed the attack as revenge…”

    Religion gives wrong answers to questions.
    But they are such comforting answers they are almost irresistible.

    The price you pay for these comforting answers?
    Occasionally you must go to war to defend them.
    Because the other side prefers their comforting answers,
    just as much as you like yours.

    Religion is the worst, most inhuman idea ever invented.
