Israeli Forces Reportedly on the Ground in Nigeria, to Help in Rescue of Kidnapped Girls

"Israel expresses deep shock at the crime against the girls. We are ready to help in finding the girls and fighting the cruel terrorism inflicted on you." -Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Israeli security forces have arrived in Nigeria to aid in the search for [over] 200 young [mostly] Christian girls recently abducted by the radical Islamist group Boko Haram.

On Monday, international media was abuzz after the publication of a video showing many of the captive girls dressed in Muslim garb (pictured) and reciting passages from the Koran. In the video, Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau says the girls will be held and continued to be forcibly converted to Islam until jailed members of his group are freed by the Nigerian government.

The government of Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan rejected the demand, and turned to the international community for assistance. Israel was quick to answer the call.

"Israel expresses deep shock at the crime against the girls," read a statement from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. "We are ready to help in finding the girls and fighting the cruel terrorism inflicted on you."

Members of a Nigerian delegation currently in Israel told Channel 2 News that their government had accepted the offer of Israeli aid, and confirmed that Israeli counter-terrorism experts were already en route to the West African nation.

An Israeli military official who just returned from Nigeria told popular Internet news site Buzzfeed that "in the wake of this crisis, Israel increased its assistance and we have been providing support in any manner possible. We have been involved on this from the beginning."

It was reported that at present, Israeli forces are helping to gather intelligence and guide Nigerian forces on how to best tackle the Boko Haram threat. Some Israeli radio commentators also suggested that Israeli special forces could be taking part in reconnaissance and combat operations.

May the good Lord and Saviour bless and keep Israel for fighting against the hatred and destruction of Islamic terrorists and their allies, the evil worthless American left and their Islamic friends. The hateful obamanation of America's desolation and ruler of them that hate God, family and country(ie, the democrats), . Israel's Prime Minsister is a fine leader and real man who knows what it means in God's Word that a leader is to be a defender of the weak and what being "my brothers keeper" truly means. Prime Minister Benjamin Netenyahu has been a defense against all who hate Israel and of other Christians and is a man to be admired, a leader worthy of being a protector of Israel and those who are weak. Obamanation is an enemy of all Christians including the foolish who belive him, a monster and hate filled Islamic terrorist supporter. Israel will be the next and last great world superpower when God in the flesh, even Jesus Christ returns and defeats all Israel's enemies and become's the King of the World, as The Holy Bible teaches. As for America, it is most probably over as the monsters of the left continue brainwash and torture the foolish and the helpless children in the the American evil government largely feminist infested democrat run and hate filled school systems. To America at large, I would say what the Scriptures teach;

Ec:10 16Woe to thee, O land, when thy king is a child, and thy princes eat in the morning!

17Blessed art thou, O land, when thy king is the son of nobles, and thy princes eat in due season, for strength, and not for drunkenness!

18By much slothfulness the building decayeth; and through idleness of the hands the house droppeth through.

And our illustrious President’s wife posts a tweet, instagram-whatever, with a scowl on her face and “just words.”

Typical Obama - “just words”

Thank God someone who is brave and knowledgable is over there! The US certainly couldn’t do it, even if our -resident was interested in this horrible persecution of Christians, which he isn’t, of course.

That Islamist piece of crud who took those girls, should start shaking in his boots with Israeli security/intelligence men going there. They are the best in the world and the piece of crud is the worst in the world at the moment.

When you have the Israelis backing you up, you have the best. We have some fine guys in security/intelligence but they are worthless now due to their commander in chief. Hussein is never going to let our guys help Christians.

I truly believe he would feel just great if all we Christians dropped dead. And, if he could, he would make it happen. He came close to killing Bundy and the rest of the Christian men/women who came to Bundy’s aid. If not for the instant news coverage, he would have killed them all. To Hussein, Christians are terrorists he must eliminate so Islam can take over.

It's my reasoned opinion that the whereabouts of this huge crowd of girls has been known for a while....and what's going on ("we don't know where they are") is a bluff while preparations and plans are being formulated to get them safely out of the clutches of the fanatics.

You can't hide a group this large for long....as they have to be near food, water, shelter and other necessities. Wherever they are camped has to be a center of some visible activity, both in and around the total body of prisoners.

Again, I'm convinced that their location is known.

Now that the “Zionist Entity” has become involved, look for the MSM, and all of the usual suspects to lose interest in this story, real quick. Wish I could post a “sarcasm tag” here, but unfortunately, this will probably be the true result of this story. Blessings upon Israel, and those poor innocent children.

If they are successful they will get no thanks whatsoever.
In fact, they will probably be attacked anew in their own country.

Yes, but they have the moral strength to do what is right. Our approach under Obama of making nice and befriending the Islamist has helped groups like Boko Haram spread everywhere.

Out POSOTUS can’t be bothered with trivial matters like hundreds of kidnapped Christian girls while he’s busy with:
Golf
Vacation
Covering up multiple scandals
Regulating cow farts
Making sure every American is up to speed on gay and transgender issues
And of course the fundamental transformation of anything else left of this country.

I am very glad that Israel is stepping up. They will do a better job anyway since they can do the job without having to please a Muslim boss.

Amen. And may the Lord and God of Israel and His Son Jesus Christ bless all them who bless Israel and curse all who curse Israel lest the evil one destroy all who love God and family and country. I pray for the PM Benjamin Netenyahu and for the God of Israel to guide him in wisdom and strengh and protect him from the devious evils of the left and all who support Islamic terrorism and hateful leftism worldwide. Can any thing good come from lestists policies and hatreds? I think not!

A more direct solution is for the Nigerian government to announce that for every girl not returned immediately, 10 Boko Haram will be executed then disposed of in a cesspit with pig offal.

If the IDF was there, it would be on the front page of the Slimes or no one would know.

So I have to call BS.

I love when Christians stick up for Israel, and when Jews are willing to risk everything for anyone who is a victim of Islamic terrorism.

As a Christian, I support everything Israel does to combat terrorism and protect the Jewish State. I was referring to Operational Security (OPSEC). I don’t think they appreciate any publication of their involvement until the girls are safe and the terrorists have found their special hell.

As, I think are British and American forces. It's important to send a message to Islamic thugs. Shame on the State Department for opposing declaring Boku Haram a terror group years ago. I understand, the Nigerian government is largely Christian, but that's no excuse for not calling Islamic terror what it is.

The Lord will bless all those who bless Israel and curse all who curse Israel, the land the Lord Jesus will rule in over all the earth for a thousand years, after the 7 year flood of judgments to war against all who hate Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour. God the Father will bring all of Jesus Christ's enemies down to hell in His final 21 flood of judgments against all nations who defy His Son and will empty the world of the wicked during the prophesied 7 year tribulation by the old testament and new testament prophets. Then begins the 1000 year rule of the King of kings and Lord of Lords after the terrible 7 year tribulation of God on all nations who have tried in their vanity and arrogant ignorance to destroy the Jewish peoples homeland, given by God the Father almighty to the Jewish people forever, as those who believe and read the Scriptures know and look forward too. The Just shall live by his faith in Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour.
