[I posted this in another forum here at the DP on September 23. 2013. I also posted a comment at the UK Guardian website on the same day but it was removed by the mods. Personally I believe the writer of the article since I have known him for two years or more and his information is usually quite sound.]
The mall is owned by Israelis (echoes of 9/11). Here is an article from an Israeli dissident who is a political prisoner in Bolivia and has survived two assassination attempts by the Mossad. He believes that the incident was likely engineered by Israel since al-Shabab is apparently controlled by Israel. Here is an excerpt:
"In this case, al-Shabab is a misleading name referring to Harakat al-Shabaab al-Mujahideen, which is claimed by the West to be a Somali cell of al-Qaeda. Since Israel is involved and al-Shabab is not exactly what the West likes to claim, allow me a short introduction about a related event that took place in the days of the First Intifada. Since I want to keep the identity of my source safe, I won't provide a more exact date or location."
"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)
