Interfaith outreach in Nigeria: Chanting “Allahu akbar,” Muslims murder over 50 Christians

FrancisdovecrowThis is the kind of story that shows how truly evil the “Islamophobia” smear campaign against foes of jihad terror really is. Reporting on this kind of story gets one charged with being an “Islamophobe.” No one dares speak up for the persecuted Christians, because they don’t want to be tarred as “hateful” and “bigoted,” and that is what happens to everyone — everyone — who does speak up. This is what the smearmongers are enabling: the murder of ever more innocent people, while the world human rights community looks the other way or commissions another study about “Islamophobia.”

Also, the jihadis chanting “Allahu akbar” yet again gives the lie to the common assumption in the West that jihadis have only a peripheral or incidental relationship to Islam, when in reality it is at the heart of their motivations.

“Survivors: Extremists kill dozens, slit throats, of Christians in northeast Nigerian village,” by Ibrahim Abdulaziz for the Associated Press, February 16 (thanks to Blazing Cat Fur):

YOLA, Nigeria (AP) — Chanting “Allah is great,” suspected Islamic militants gunned down dozens of Christian villagers and slit the throats of others in the latest attack in a northeast Nigerian area where the military has been bombing extremists out of forest hideouts, survivors said Sunday.

Local government chairman Maina Ularamu told The Associated Press he has reports of more than 50 people killed in Saturday night’s attack on Izghe village in Borno state.

One survivor said the village list of those killed amounted to 63 dead. He spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of reprisals.

He said the attackers looted the village food stores and made off with about 10 vehicles.

Survivors said they are among hundreds of people from Izghe and neighboring villages who fled on foot through the bush in the night from Borno into Adamawa, two of three northeast Nigerian states under a state of emergency to halt a 4-year-old Islamic uprising. The area is inhabited mainly by Christians in the overwhelmingly Muslim north of Nigeria.

Insurgents of the Boko Haram terrorist network routinely attack civilians after they are attacked by the military….

Thousands of Muslims and Christians have been killed and tens of thousands forced from their homes by the state of emergency and by militants who want to create an Islamic state in Nigeria, Africa’s biggest oil producer with a population of more than 160 million made up of about equal numbers of Christians and Muslims.

    It’s time for ALL Good men to stand up and speak out to evil. Whether, Christian, Jew Buddhist, Hindu or atheist.

    You know the end times are a commin when the Pope in less than 6 months says you can go to heaven without believing in Jesus, Abortionist and Gays should be part of the leadership of the church, and Islam is the Religion of Peace, only a few misguided individuals ruin the message!

      You’re right about the need to unite against Islam.
      As for the Pope, he can say whatever he wants, I, as a Catholic, don’t give a s— about what he has to say unless it is said ex-cathedra, in virtue of his supreme apostolic authority. Other than that, he’s nothing but an ordinary person capable of saying the most stupid things you can imagine. And he’s doing just that!

        Pope Francis should go to Nigeria and personally DENOUNCE iSLAM if he has any faith in Christ at all!

    Why is it that atheists such as myself (following the example of fellow infidels Christopher Hitchings and Richard Dawkins for example) are horrified by the Islamic persecution of Christians, while Christian leaders and politicans such as the current Pope and UK PM David Cameron, assure us, after each new atrocity, that Islam is a ‘religion of peace’?

    Christianity is one of the most blood soaked religions of all time, but Islam is fast catching up. Yes, we should pray for innocents slaughtered in the name Allah, but then we need to do something about it. Christian, Jew, Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist, Atheist, it doesn’t matter anymore, we are all the same in there eyes and they will kill us regardless.
