She told all this to Pope Francis, who called her a “martyr,” but of course said nothing about the belief system that led these men to torture her and murder her baby.
That was no surprise. Last September, the Pope met in the Vatican with Dr. Muhammad bin Abdul Karim Al-Issa, the secretary general of the Muslim World League (MWL), a group that has been linked to the financing of jihad terror. During the meeting, al-Issa thanked the Pope for his “fair positions” on what he called the “false claims that link extremism and violence to Islam.” Ahmed al-Tayeb, the Grand Imam of Cairo’s al-Azhar, has also thanked Francis for his “defense of Islam against the accusation of violence and terrorism.”
Pope Francis has proclaimed that “authentic Islam and the proper understanding of the Koran reject every form of violence,” doing his bit to ensure that as many Christians as possible would remain ignorant and complacent about the jihad threat that his precious “dialogue” does nothing to mitigate.
Pope Francis is a disgrace to the Catholic Church, to Judeo-Christian civilization, and to the free world.

“Islamic Radicals Drown Christian Woman’s Baby, Rape and Impregnate Her,” by Stoyan Zaimov, Christian Post, February 26, 2018:
A Christian woman who had to watch her 3-year-old son drown in a river before she was raped and forced to carry the child of a Boko Haram fighter in Nigeria, shared her traumatic story with Pope Francis at the Vatican.
On a special night highlighting Christian persecution, where Rome’s Colosseum was lit up in red colors for awareness, Rebecca Bitrus told Francis about the horrors she has suffered, as reported by Crux.
Bitrus revealed on Saturday that while her husband managed to escape in August 2014 when Boko Haram, the Islamic radical group, attacked the small town in Nigeria where they lived, she and her two young children were captured.
The Roman Catholic mother was taken with her children to a forest encampment, where the terrorists attempted to force her to convert to Islam, but she refused.
“One of the Boko Haram said, ‘You’re not ready to convert to Islam, so I’m going to teach you a lesson,'” she said, recalling how her 3-year-old son Jonathan was tossed into a nearby river, where he drowned.
Fearing for the life of her 5-year-old son, Zachary, Bitrus said that she agreed to “go through the motions of Islamic devotion,” but inside clung to her Christian faith.
“They would come on us with their guns and force us to pray. Each time I bent down to pray, I was reciting the ‘Hail Mary’ and the ‘Our Father,'” the woman said.
“I’m convinced that’s what saved me.”
Bitrus was then married off to one of the militants, who raped her on numerous occasions over several months, eventually leading her to give birth to a male child, who she called Christopher.
After two years of captivity she managed to escape when Nigerian troops engaged Boko Haram radicals in a battle, but pondered leaving behind Christopher, who was a heavy reminder of what she had suffered. She even laid him down on the forest floor and began to walk away, but her eldest son changed her mind.
“Zachary told me, ‘Jonathan isn’t here anymore, I don’t have a little brother, so why don’t you take Christopher?'” she recalled.
The mother decided to pick up the baby and take him with them….
Francis, who also heard about the tales of persecution of numerous other Christians, including mother of five Asia Bibi who has been placed on death row for blasphemy in Pakistan, declared both women to be “martyrs.”
“The witness of Rebecca and Asia Bibi are a model for a society that today has ever more fear of suffering,” the pope said….
