Sudanese Islamists Financing Genocide by Wiping Out Africa’s Elephants

This story is so depressing in so many ways and on so many levels because it shows you what will be left Africa or of any part of the world if the Islamists succeed. All that will be left are corpses, slaves and deserts. No civilization and not even much in the way of wildlife.

Cameroon’s Special Forces have been deployed to foil an imminent raid by Sudanese poachers who for eight weeks earlier this year slaughtered half the population of elephants for their ivory at one of the country’s wildlife reserves.

The poachers have been attempting to take park guards in northern Cameroon by surprise by exploiting greater ground cover that has sprouted in the rainy season, according to international conservation body World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF)

“This is the same group of poachers that in early 2012 travelled more than 1,000km on horseback from northern Sudan across the Central African Republic and Chad to kill over 300 elephants in the Bouba N’Djida National Park in northern Cameroon,” WWF said.

The heavily armed and well coordinated poachers, who had told local villagers of their plans to kill as many elephants as possible, claimed they had killed as much as 650 out of some 1,000 that roamed the park.

The elephant population in Cameroon and in central Africa is estimated to have been halved, mainly by poachers, between 1995 and 2007 with the number of elephants killed still on the rise…

“The millions of dollars their poaching raid must have brought in will allow them to replenish their weapons stores.”

And Al Qaeda in Somalia is also getting in on the act

Several Somali elders said that the Shabab, the militant Islamist group that has pledged allegiance to Al Qaeda, recently began training fighters to infiltrate neighboring Kenya and kill elephants for ivory to raise money.

One former Shabab associate said that the Shabab were promising to “facilitate the marketing” of ivory and have encouraged villagers along the Kenya-Somalia border to bring them tusks, which are then shipped out through the port of Kismayo, a notorious smuggling hub and the last major town the Shabab still control.

Islam… making the world a worse place one atrocity at a time. No creature on earth is safe from the evil that Mohammed spawned.

    Nice to know thanks to leftist moral equivalence "sensitivity training" that any of those poachers can be president of the USA some day as far as American voters care. Unless of course any of them are white, in which case what they (the white or whites) are doing is so horrible and disgusting that it's beyond words and proof of the vast right wing conspiracy that has now gone global.

    Where the heck is Paul Watson when you need him? Mr. Sea Shepherd should go do something USEFUL!

    And if he gets a bullet between the eyes, it's no great loss.

    I wonder if the folks at PETA will complain. Naw! They won't utter a peep.

      You know what all ! It is Christmas morning for me. I am off to thank God for all you who comment here and to give thanks for Daniel, David etc. You are a gift. The hard left and the extreme savages of islam ( I won't honor it with capitalization) who are slaughtering elephants are not the the worst of the problem. The problem it seems to me is the dead asleep liberal population around me, friends,family members included. I wreck my head trying to find creative ways to reach them without having them write me off as obsessive or paranoid or something. A Christian world will defeat Islam as it did before. I pray for that.

    We cherish clean air, water, and the food chain. The question is, why not the Muslims? Why don't they seem to need ecology? It seems that they have no plans to survive in a distant future. Do they have ancommandment to be apocalyptic? To bring about an apocalyptic war, in which they die as well?

      Allah will provide them with clean air, water and the rest of the stuff if they conquer everyone and force them to live under Islamic law.

      That's how they think.

        "Allah will provide them with clean air, water and the rest of the stuff if they conquer everyone and force them to live under Islamic law. That's how they think.

        These are mainstream teachings. Not only this, but we who build civilizations and massive high tech projects are to Muslims what worker bees are to the queen, or something along those lines. Allah created us to work for them. We've created all of these things in preparation for the pious Muslim generation to rightfully take over.
