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.

    not one of the millions of ‘peaceful’ Muslims nor any Muslim group or organization is rushing in to correct these ‘misunderstanders’ of the peaceful religion of Islam…

  • Gee

    I wonder how loud the screams from leftists and Muslims would be if the West took them at their word and did the same to them.

    What did Imam Abubakar Shekauhear?

    A pastor once said in a sermon, when you hear a voice that it can be three things, G-D, The Devil, or yourself fooling yourself. It has been a decade so I do not remember much more from the particular sermon, but I would say it’s good advice.

    So did Imam Abubakar Shekauhear hear the devil or himself?

    Or is this his interpretation of the Qu’ran?

    Some Islamic scholars in Saudi Arabia have condemned Boko Haram’s actions. I take that as window dressing. I don’t see any sustained, large scale demonstration against Boko Haram by Muslims in Europe, North America or the Muslim world. Id do not see the King of Saudi Arabia public rebuking Boko Haram in public several times in conjunction with Muslim religious authorities.

    For the Islamic scholar to rebuke Boko Haram is like a small university think tank making a pronouncement on a Friday afternoon on a holiday weekend. They can say we took a stand when asked. But the stand was made to be on the record but not made to be widely disseminated or known. It means nothing.

      Mohammed heard the devil. Muslims believe that Mo received some messages from the devil which he confused with Allah.

    That’s clearly a declaration of war against the USA, ‘moderate’ muslims, and Christians everywhere. Al qaeda even put theirs in writing and we pretended we were at peace until they killed us by the thousands on our own soil.

      And not one word about mooselimbs at today’s dedication of the memorial.

    Tried to imagine Billy Graham saying the same thing in context. Couldn’t do it.

    Muhammad’s Koran is endorsed by Jinn. What does that tell you about the nature of Islam? If the prophet could be fooled by Satan once, how can one know that the rest of his revelations were also not from Iblis?

    Whenever he uses the word “Allah” simply change it to “Satan” and you’ve got it right.

    Could someone please get this message to President Goodluck Johnson? Read 1 Samuel 15 and heed what it says concerning Amalek. Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not. Leave no survivors whatsoever, and if necessary ask the Israelis to provide weapons of mass destruction.
