Posted on 04/29/2012 1:49:04 PM PDT by CHRISTIAN DIARIST
At least 16 Christians were murdered today while attending church services in Kano, Nigeria, the nations second-largest city. As many as 22 other worshippers reportedly suffered gunshot wounds.
The massacre took place on the campus of Kanos Bayero University. Police report that gunmen interrupted the church service and used small explosives to chase worshippers out before shooting those who fled.
This is but the latest violent attack upon Christians in Muslim-majority nations in Africa, the Middle East and Asia. Such attacks increased more than 300 percent between 2003 and 2010, according Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a research fellow at the America Enterprise Institute.
In no country do Christians face greater danger than Nigeria, where the radical Islamist sect Boko Haram (which means Western education is sacrilege) has publicly declared its intent to kill all Christians in the country.
And that was no idle threat.
In 2011, the terror group killed more than 500 Christians, while burning down or destroying more than 350 Christian churches. And Boko Haram continues its jihad against Nigerias Christian community in 2012, killing 54 in January, 38 last month at an Easter church service and, this Sunday morning, 16 murdered in Kano.
What particularly troubles is that the alarming increase in genocidal attacks against Christians witnessed not only in Nigeria, but throughout the Muslim World, has generated little outrage in the United States, Europeand the rest of the non-Muslim World.
Ali, who authored a recent Newsweek cover story on the Muslim War on Christians, attributes that unconscionable silence to the outsized influence of such well-financed lobbying groups as the Organization of Islamic Cooperation and the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
Individuals and organizations that call attention to Muslim atrocities against Christians like the attack this morning in Nigeria are accused by those lobbying groups (and others) of being Islamaphobic.
Of course, that accusation is patently absurd. No less so than the claim that Islam is a religion of peace.
Where is that bastion of human rights, the United Nations? Oh, that’s right...countries such as Nigeria, Syria, and Venezuela sit on the Human Rights Committee. They have nothing to say when Christians are murdered in their own countries.
And the tax drones of the USA provide the funds to keep that Morgue of Dead Freedoms in NYC open.
Hey I have got an excellent idea! Let’s invite some of the poor, misunderstood mooselimbs over to the United States because we simply do not have enough of their type of angry diversity.
What a foolish nation it is that recognizes lethal poison and ingests it anyway.
can’t be, islam is the religion of peace
