Slaughter of the innocent

A mother was knifed 113 times and her three children – one of whom was disabled – were butchered in a Queenstown killing so brutal it has attracted the attention of the United Nations.

Since the victims were Somali immigrants, the UN is investigating whether the bloody slaughter was xenophobic. WTF?

Sahra Omar Farah, 46, and her children, Mohamed Isse Osman, 19, Ibrahim Isse Osman, 14, and their younger sister Asha Isse Osman, 12, were killed three weeks after emigrating from Somalia to set up a spaza shop in Tambo village, outside Queenstown.

They were found in a pool of blood after children went to their shop to buy bread.

The killing is being investigated by the UN High Commission for Refugees in Pretoria which, on learning about the bloodbath, immediately sent an official to the area.

Deputy regional representative Abel Mbilinyi said they were shocked by the brutality of the killings and wanted to discover whether the attackers had a xenophobic motive.

We can’t wait for the government to work alone in this,” he said.

“This is a complex issue so, as the United Nation’s High Commission for Refugees, we have to investigate and help where we need to help.”

But acting provincial police commissioner Nomalady Dlani is convinced the killing was not motivated by xenophobia.

“We strongly condemn the killing,” said Dlani.

“The motive of the killing was robbery and we want to dispel the fear that it might be a xenophobic killing.”

Nomaleti Mdeni, the murdered family’s neighbour, said the four bodies were found by the children after they saw blood splashed all over the place on Friday morning.

“We thought there was no one inside, but seeing a lot of that blood we knew that something was wrong,” she said.

“It was a very painful death. They were all naked and their bodies had multiple stab wounds.”

She said villagers had battled to open the shop as the killers had apparently locked up the room before fleeing.

The scene that greeted them when the door was eventually opened was so terrible that it had many screaming in horror – the blood-soaked bodies were piled on top of one another.

They had been repeatedly stabbed and it could be seen that they had been bashed against the walls before they were dragged behind the shop counters.

“This is the scariest thing I’ve ever seen in my life,” said Mdeni.

Farah’s husband was in the United Kingdom at the time of the murders, but has been informed.

Swift action by Queenstown police resulted in the arrest of three suspects.

Mandla Thomas, 22, Melikhaya Ncaphayi, 26, and Masithini Dyasi, 19, appeared in the Queenstown Magistrate’s Court yesterday in connection with the killings.

Police spokesperson Superintendent Gcinikaya Taleni said four charges of murder were being investigated.

Police could not confirm that the mother and her 12-year-old daughter were repeatedly raped before they were killed.

Ahmed Yusuf, a Somali national, said the doctor informed them the woman had 113 stab wounds.

“What must we do,” he asked.

“We ran away from our country but it was not like this; we don’t deserve this. Not a single government official came to us and see what happened; nobody cares about us, but we won’t let this go without being challenged.”

Queenstown Somali Association branch chairperson Osman Gedi said many families moved to South Africa in search of a better life, but instead were treated like outcasts and butchered like animals.

“Just imagine when they were begging them to stop killing them: it was painful, very painful. They were slaughtered like animals; we saw them, their bodies were full of stab wounds and they were skinned by those knives.

“They came to the country to get help for the deaf boy to get better, and now this.”

Another neighbour, Nwabisa Lani, said they were a loving family who, in a short space of time, had got on well with the community.

“This was a lovely family and we loved them a lot. You could see the mother working hard to look after her children, and we loved the disabled child, he was so sweet,” said Lani.

As cruel and grave as this murder may be, it is rather strange that this SINGLE incident is now being investigated by the UN. Why would the other THOUSANDS of murders not raise an eyebrow?

"An average of 55 South Africans are murdered every day"..."more than in many countries which are at war."

At 55 murders per day, the total number of murders per year is about 20,000, compared to about 16,000 for the United States. The latter, of course, has more than six times the population of South Africa.

The genocide of the Boers is completely ignored and hardly even reported in South Africa.

"It's politically correct to kill whites these days,"

"The white Boer Afrikaner farmer is easily the highest at-risk group for murder on Earth."

South Africans, (SA has a population of 47 million people) reported 19 202 murders at the SA Police Service from April 2006 to March 2007. (Source)

The South African farming community has suffered from attacks for many years. The vast majority of the victims have been white farmers, with claims of death tolls of up to 1,700 (July 2005) cited in the media.

The age of those killed range from as old as 87 years to young infants. Genocide Watch has stated that these attacks constitute early warning signs of genocide against Boers and has criticized the South African government for its inaction on the issue, pointing out that the murder rate for them ("ethno-European farmers" in their report) is four times that of the general South African population.

Ahh, but we forget..when the victim is blek, eish, it is a bad thing. The UN, Amnesty Intl and Geldof gets stuck in.

When the victim is white, they 'deserve' it.

The thing is this: we (meaning the whites) are alone in this world. Even among some of our own race, we are still alone. We must accept that no one gives a crap. We can only fight back by highlighting the hypocrisy and educating people (usually the white useful idiot liberal leftwing kind) that they are being screwed for being white.

And we must take care of ourselves. No one else will. Things may change in a few decades but for the moment, we are under a sort of peecee siege where all things non-white is good and white is bad. We must just accept that and act with that knowledge as our basis for doing anything. Start to look after yourselves, your kind (just like other races do), form whites only organisations (like other races do) and things will change. It is not about superiority, it is about fairness.

I'm not sure what bothers me the MOST, the fact that the boers are subject to a campaign of brutal genocide or the fact that this will continue unabated while the world turns a blind eye yet jumps to investigate a so-called xenophobic attack. Has the U.N even seen some of these farm murder reports? People are butchered and nothing is stolen, 100% pure hate crimes, which the U.N I believe has a mandate on when committed against a minority.

The world wants to see white South Africans punished, continually punished forever! We will never have paid our dues in the eyes of the world. The thing that always makes me think is, after WW2 the German people were never punished, it was their leaders who stood trial and were punished. In time all Germans weren’t thought of as Nazis, the world moved on and let them forget the past and let them grow and progress, now when you think of Germany its synonymy’s with ‘efficiency, beer fest, or good cars’. The Germans weren’t subject to continuous reminders of their ‘dark days’ yet their crimes against humanity in WW1 & WW2 make apartheid look like a walk in the park.

I agreed with apartheid, but I didn’t agree with the brutality even though I understand it was totally necessary. The most fundamental aspect of apartheid which is NEVER mentioned is we provided blacks with their own black-homelands which they were free to govern in any way they saw fit separate from us whites.

Back to the point, what I’m trying to say is, in the eye’s of the world South Africans need to be punished for our so-called crimes, but does the world forget nobody ended apartheid but us, we freed Mandela, we held democratic elections, we let the kaffirs take over peacefully we gave the world and those liberals what they wanted, what more did they want??? We could have taken the fight straight to them and blown them off the face of the earth, we could have let Mandela rot in jail. We even had a nuclear capability & to put that into perspective, think about how much stress N Korea gives the world with theirs!

The world doesn’t even begin to understand how much we paid in repentance even before the farmer genocide began! People will only change their minds about South Africans until we are all dead or left the country, we can never let the former happen, the latter is our only option for survival.

@ anon 10:54..

Very well stated. Like I said, we are alone. We must forget about the world giving a shit and we must forget about playing 'democracy' with a group of misfits (ANC) who do not give a flying f**k about us. We must take care of ourselves, it is the way it is.
