Remember, Islam has nothing to do with this. It’s a peaceful and non-violent religion.
The leader of Boko Haram sect, Imam Abubakar Shekau, released a video yesterday in which he claimed responsibility for abducting the Nigerian school girls, and also threatened more attacks, He said; he will soak all Nigerian soil with Christian blood, and Muslims opposing them, describing them as infidels.
“It is Allah that instructed us, until we soak the ground of Nigeria with Christian blood and so called Muslims contradicting Islam. After we have killed, killed, killed, and get fatigue and wondering on what to do with smelling of their corpses, smelling of Obama, Bush and Jonathan worried us then we will open prison and be imprisoned the rest. Infidels have no value.”
Later he said, “This is a war against Christians and democracy and their constitution, we have not started, we will be in Abuja, and in your state. This war is against Christians, I mean Christians, generally the infidels. Allah says we should finish them when we get them.”
What we have here is a failure to communicate. Boko Haram insists on explaining that they are motivated by Islam to kill Christians and abuse women. And the pundits and diplomats rush out to insist that we shouldn’t pay any attention to them.
Boko Haram’s big dream is genocide followed by locking up whoever survives. And the mentions of Bush and Obama suggest that this terror group, linked to Al Qaeda, has plans beyond Nigeria’s borders.
