Muslims celebrated Christmas in Nigeria by massacring around 100 Christians across a dozen communities. The Jihadis hacked Christians to death with machetes and burned down churches as part of a genocidal campaign that has killed 52,000 Christians in over a decade and forced millions to leave their home and become refugees in the African nation.
In America, not a single person marched, rallied or protested over this actual genocide.
The rampaging mobs crying that Hamas is suffering genocide remained silent. Black Lives Matter had nothing to say about it and neither did any of the politicians and social media influencers who spend all of their time pushing fake casualty numbers out of Gaza.
According to the International Society for Civil Liberties and Rule of Law (Intersociety), a local NGO, over 4,500 Christians were killed this year in Nigeria. Unlike Israel’s defensive war against Hamas, this latest year of the ongoing Muslim genocide has resulted in no UN Security Council sessions or UN General Assembly votes. And the media has kept the killing off its front pages.
Every human rights organization that shouts “genocide” whenever a Hamas terrorist dies has yet to declare genocide over the killing of over 50,000 civilians by Muslim gangs aided and abetted by the Muslim rulers who have taken over Nigeria and waged war on Christians.
Earlier this year, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the ‘Godfather of Lagos’ educated in Chicago and once accused of ties to heroin trafficking, named “leader of warriors” by the Emir of Borgu, took power earlier this year, replacing the brutal regime of President Muhammadu Buhari, a former dictator backed by the Obama administration to usurp former Christian President Jonathan Goodluck.
Intersociety described the massacre of 700 Christians earlier this year as a “farewell gift” to outgoing President Muhamadu Buhari warning that 100 churches had been destroyed by Islamic Jihadists in just 60 days. Every time a terror mosque is bombed in Gaza, it’s in the headlines, but how is it possible that 100 churches being destroyed in mere months isn’t news?
Intersociety began its count of the over 50,000 murdered Christians in 2009. That’s no coincidence. As part of the ‘Arab Spring’, the Obama administration had set out to ‘flip’ Middle Eastern countries from secular to Islamic rule, but in a less well known move, had also begun flipping African countries from non-Muslim to Muslim rule, resulting in the massacre of Christians. There is more Christian blood on Obama’s hands than anyone in a long time.
The Obama administration staged a Muslim coup in Côte d’Ivoire leading to a civil war in which it indirectly intervened in favor of Alassane Ouattara who has remained in power since 2010. In Kenya, Obama backed efforts by his cousin, Raila Odinga, who like Obama claimed to be Christian, but had developed close ties to the country’s Islamic population and ran as their champion, to take power. And in Nigeria, Obama had pressured the government to stop fighting Islamic terrorism. The end result of these efforts was a horrifying wave of Boko Haram terror.
Boko Haram, an Islamic Jihadist group dedicated to enforcing Islamic law, amped up the violence while the Obama administration insisted that the Nigerian military should avoid going after the terrorists and instead pumped a fortune in foreign aid to deal with “social inequities”.
The money instead helped finance a genocidal wave of Islamic violence, much as it had in Gaza and Iran, but the Obama administration and its leftist allies went on lying about the genocide. The official position was that Muslims were killing Christians in response to oppression. If only they had better economic prospects and more political power, the violence would stop.
The Obama administration refused to add Boko Haram to the list of Foreign Terrorist Organizations which allowed the Jihadists to benefit from money coming out of the United States until mounting political pressure from Republicans forced it to do the right thing. But not until thousands had been killed while Obama officials falsely claimed that Boko Haram was not an Islamic terrorist group and that FTO designation would only alienate Nigerian Muslims.
In 2021, the New York Times published an op-ed claiming that, “there is no proof that a well-organized, ideologically coherent terrorist group called Boko Haram even exists today.” But by 2014, Boko Haram’s mass kidnapping of hundreds of Christian girls led to the #BringBackOurGirls campaign. The efforts to deny that an Islamic terrorist group inspired, trained and financed by Al Qaeda, which had killed thousands, even existed, ended.
But the motives behind the lies that enabled the Christian genocide remained the same.
Obama got what he wanted with Muhammadu Buhari, but after two terms of the former Muslim dictator, the killing goes on. Boko Haram, an Al Qaeda ally, has gotten bogged down in fighting a local splinter group affiliated with ISIS, for the bragging rights to Christian genocide. And ordinary Fulani Muslim tribesmen and gangs have taken over campaigns of butchery like those that occurred over Christmas. And some Nigerian Christians say that the atrocities of these ordinary Fulani Muslims are even worse than those practiced by Boko Haram.
“The disembowelling of pregnant women and the butchering of the fetus is a specialty of theirs,” the rector of a Nigerian seminary described.
Obama officials claimed that the real issue wasn’t Muslim terrorism but Muslim oppression. A decade later as Fulani Muslims have gone on massacring Christians, the story hasn’t changed even as the massacres continued under the regime of Buhari: a fellow Fulani Muslim.
Instead of addressing the Fulani Muslim genocide of Christians, human rights organizations and the media have claimed that members of the Fulani ethnic group are the ones facing “persecution” in Nigeria and elsewhere in the region for their Jihadist tendencies.
The massacre of Christians in Nigeria, like Oct 7 and Islamic terrorism around the world from India to America is part of a thousand year Islamic genocide of non-Muslims commanded by the Koran. Every time their victims fight back, the Islamists and their allies cry “genocide”, but the true genocide is the one that has claimed countless millions across every religious group in every part of the world. It is a thousand year genocide that the world must fight back against.
Muslim terrorists are not the victims of genocide, they are its perpetrators.
We must stand with the Christian victims of Islamic genocide in Nigeria, with the Jewish victims of genocide in Israel, the Hindu victims of genocide in Kashmir, the Buddhist victims of genocide in Myanmar and with the atheists being murdered in Bangladesh.
If we do not, the final genocide will be our own.
