Kill All Christians
by James Dunnigan
April 12, 2013

The U.S. believes that the Nigerian militant Islamic group Boko Haram is still moving men to and from (mostly from these days) Mali via Niger. The Boko Haram members fleeing Mali are providing trained (in Mali) men for launching more terror attacks. The U.S. is also not keeping quiet about the fact that the chronic corruption in Nigeria is the main reason for the emergence and persistence of Boko Haram. Most Nigerians accept the corruption angle but the Nigerian politicians are less enthusiastic about losing all that illegal income and prosecuting themselves.

In northern Borno state, where Boko Haram has been most active, the Islamic terrorists have destroyed all but two of the 52 Catholic churches in the state. Boko Haram has been particularly hostile to non-Moslems and southern politicians are having a difficult time restraining southern Christians from retaliating against Moslems living in the largely Christian south. This is what Boko Haram wants, as they see a general religious war as benefitting them. Most Nigerians don’t see it that way. In response to that, Boko Haram is increasingly vocal and specific about its plans to drive all Christians from Nigeria, killing those who resist. Christians are welcome to convert to Islam but going the other way will get you a death sentence from Boko Haram.
