Boko Haram Violence: Christians Take Revenge Against Muslims In Nigeria

Christians are attacking Muslims in northern Nigeria in revenge for allegedly backing the Boko Haram militant group. The Nigerian government recently reclaimed some northern territories from Boko Haram, but some Muslim residents said they were afraid to return home because of harassment from their Christian neighbors, according to media reports.

One Muslim said a friend’s wife was found floating in a river with her hands tied behind her back after she tried to hike through a Christian district. Salihi Ateequ, a member of the Adamawa State Muslim Council, said his sister was carrying an infant on her back when she was ambushed by Christians. Both were hacked to death.

“The Christians … believe the Muslims invited Boko Haram to come and kill them,” Ateequ said. “So now it’s vengeance and every Muslim is a target.”

    “Afraid to leave islame because they’ll kill you? Here, let us give you an equivalent incentive to help you make the commitment.”

    This will give the NYTimes, et al, something to report on in Nigeria.

    Given the historically documented lean to violence by Muslims to push their beliefs, finally an incentive for them to convert to Christianity.

    I’m sure the Toronto Star and the rest of the Western media will have major reports on the plight of poor peace loving muslims in Nigeria. Prepare your barf bags.

      Yet they give limited time to the thousands of non muslims who are killed.

      Worse, they will use this as the ‘poster child’ child to slam all Christians with.

      “See you do it too!!111one” Is what they’ll say all the wile conveniently forgetting thousands of years of tribal living does not evaporate in a few years being “Christian”.

      On top of that they will also ignore there own hatred for ‘blanket statements’ and ‘sweeping generalizations’ whilst making on of Christians.

      Red cross, World Vision, Watoto, etc….all this contributions never looked at and never talked about and christians are still the bad guys. One death in the name of Christ is too many but hundreds of millions in the name of ‘Progress’ is forgivable.

      I’m getting to the point where you know what fine. If I’m the bad guy no matter what i do then i might as well get some enjoyment out of it. Now if you’ll excuse me I’m going to work on my evil cackle and make sure I’m as maximally offensive as possible since I’m paying the penalty regardless.

      but more likely ill just get another coffee.

    I lived in Africa for five years, The locals getting choppy choppy with each other was really the normal than the extraordinary. Religion, tribe, or just losing a game of cards, they don’t need much excuse. I have a nine inch scar on my noggin to prove it.
    Rwanda, Liberia, Congo, Somalia, Nigeria, same shit different day.
    The only time we hear about it is when they get really wound up and the numbers are big enough for a good news story.
