White House: Boko Haram Is An Education Problem, Not A Jihad
Daily Caller ^ | 5/13/14 | Neil Munro

Posted on 05/13/2014 9:03:57 AM PDT by Nachum

symbolic obstacle to girls’ educational progress, not as another murderous example of militant Islam that could be fought by U.S. forces. The straight-faced effort to change the subject from jihad to education policy is a reach even for the White House’s media team, partly because the jihadi group has a decade-long history of bombing Christian churches and schools, and killing thousands of Africans. On May 12, for example, the group paraded more than 100 kidnapped girls who have converted to Islam to escape rape. The first lady and

It’s an education problem. It’s workplace violence. Al Qaeda is on the ropes. Crimea is a regional corruption issue.

Seriously, the media and world governments are so corrupt that they can’t be honest with themselves anymore let alone the people they purport to rule.

The fact that WH and USG can behave this way, should point you to the fact that “We the People” are no more. The people of the once free Republic would have never allowed this USG/news facade to continue.

islamism is NOT and education problem. It’s an attempt to have every last one of us living under sharia.

Please God, give our Congressmen the fortitude to rid us of this enemy within.

I'm learning from Zen Master Barry that there is not a 900 lb. gorilla in the room, and that its name is neither “Jihad,” “Boko Haram,” or “Moochelle.”

Sometimes I wonder if they believe their own propaganda or if they just think that Americans are so stupid and the Regime has such total control over the media that they can say and do anything and the voters will just nod in slack jawed obeisance.

BOKO HARAM is an education problem, not a jihad - as Charles Manson is a behavior problem, not a murderer.

Boko Haram’s New War Song: “We Will Enter Churches and Slaughter Christians…”

Leah Barkoukis

3/31/2014

http://townhall.com/tipsheet/leahbarkoukis/2014/03/31/boko-haram-jihadists-sing-song-vowing-to-storm-churches-and-kill-christians-n1817188

In a video explaining how they attacked Giwa Barracks earlier this month, the Nigeria-based Islamist militant group, Boko Haram, also sang songs about how they plan to continue targeting Christians, churches, and the country at large.

Sahara Reporters brings you the latest from the Religion of Peace (emphasis mine):

The 24-minute video appears to confirm the sect’s sophistication as well as its access to modern weaponry.
The video shows the sect exhibiting their warfare techniques, shooting targets from specialized armed vans, as well as holding and firing grenades from the ground. It also shows the sect’s commanders coordinating operations by giving orders.

The footage contains details of how the sect launched attacks from several directions in and around the military barracks. It also shows hundreds of people the sect claimed to have freed from detention by the Nigerian military.

Warning Nigerian police officers to stay off their path, the sect sang, “Police give us way, you are too weak and small to stop us. You are all women and we understand you.”

The sect sang that their demand for Sharia cannot be compromised. They restated that their targets remained churches, Christians and the Nigerian state. Part of the song stated, “We are working for Allah and must bring Shariah to existence; we are committed to protecting Muslims from being annihilated by infidels. We are going to kill them. We will enter Churches and slaughter Christians and barracks. We are calling on all Muslims to come out and fight Jihad. If you joke, these infidels will annihilate Muslims. You see how they are killing our women and children.”

The group boasted that it had demonstrated its prowess in Borno, Bauchi and Abuja, and the infidels of Plateau, Kaduna, Adamawa and Gombe.

They vowed to fight for Shariah will all their might until success was achieved.

Designated as a foreign terrorist organization by the State Department, Boko Haram has been violently attacking churches, schools, markets, and government forces since 2009.

As a result of attacks by Boko Haram and “uncontrolled reprisals” by Nigeria’s security forces, there have been more than 1,500 deaths in the country in 2014 so far, according to Amnesty International. Boko Haram is responsible for more than half of the killings, however, which includes “scores of schoolchildren who have been the victims of deliberate attacks.”

According to the United States Institute of Peace, Boko Haram believes “the politics in northern Nigeria has been seized by a group of corrupt, false Muslims” and therefore wants to wage a war against them, the Nigerian government, military, and civilians in order to “create a “pure” Islamic state ruled by sharia law.”

Where was Obama during the Islamic terrorist arrack in Benghazi? Did you heard Obama and Michelle’s outrage over the massacre of Christians by Muslims during the last 6 years of his presidency?

Since liberalism is also an education problem, I can see how Carney came to this conclusion.

If this Current Regime says it is not a “jihad”, then in all certainty the Beau-Coup Harem clearly IS an Islamic jihadist terrorist organization.

Columbine or Sandy Hook might have been an “education problem”, but there was no organized pseudo-religious BS in the assault.

Well, we obviously need a $500 million dollar grant to teach Boko Haram the tenets of communitarian living, so they won’t need to resort to violence in the face of continuous white repression. /s

“The people of the once free Republic would have never allowed this USG/news facade to continue.”

What made the greatest generation so great was that they defeated, tried, and severely punished Nazis who used the power of government to deny civil rights to members of other races thus allowing innocents to be killed.

They would have done this even if the Nazis of that era were Eskimos, homos, or negroes.

I think the simple solution is to educate them, I suggest a large dose of education delivered with an appropriate mineral supplement of lead directly to their craniums until until the desired impact has been achieved. Some members may require more mineral supplements than others, results may vary but the appropriate level of education will have been achieved when respiration has been eliminated.

In the last week I have heard Boko Haram is due to poverty, global warming, White racism, and now this. I guess the fact that they have an islamic war cry as a name has nothing to do with ISLAM.
