Somalia: Al Shabaab, On Twitter, Threatens To Kill Kenyan Hostages
Update: Kenya Won't Negotiate With These Bitches

First, Al Shabaab (aka the African Taliban) tweet a link to the download:

Next, it appears on JihadTube:

Then the threats:

Twitter yawns over TOS violation as they did when Al Shabaab, aka @HSMPress, threatened to kill French hostage Denis Allex if France attempted to rescue him. He died and Al Shabaab tweeted several images of a French commando who was killed in the failed hostage rescue operation.

I suppose we should start calling Twitter JihadTweet or JihadTwitter or TwitterJihad, much like we call Google's YouTube JihadTube.

Update: Kenya officials respond to the above threat We will not bargain with al-Shabaab

* Says government "cannot negotiate with terrorists"
* Nairobi says hostages are non-combatants, not POWs
"not POW's", exactly.

Update: If you so choose, tweet this article to @hrw and/or contact them here and ask why the silence on these hostages and the death threat. If Jews were involved it would be all over the news.

Update: OWND:
