Kenya Muslims say no to fighting Somalia Islamists.

Terrorism: Not that they don't want Kenya dragged into a regional war, but they just don't like them Christians who may be trying to take over. The Horn of Africa is ripe for chaos.

The Kenyan Muslim leader says Muslims in Kenya will not allow their country to be used in what he describes as "Christian plans" to attack Somalia to discredit and destroy the growing Islamist movement there. "We will never support a Christian country, or a Christian army to fight against our Muslim brothers," said Dor. "We will not say how we are going to protect our Muslim brothers in Somalia, if any foreign country passes in Kenya. But we are telling you, we will definitely protect our Muslim brothers. Definitely." Muslims make up about a quarter of Kenya's predominantly Christian population of nearly 36 million. Since the September 11, 2001, attacks in the United States, tensions between Kenyan Muslims and Christians have been rising steadily, amid Muslim complaints of harassment and intimidation in the country's official efforts to combat terrorism.
