It’s really hard to know which group of crazed radical Muslims are the worst group of crazed radical Muslims, there seems to be two contenders for the crown. First, we have ISIS/ISIL, who are murdering their way across much of the Middle East, declaring themselves to be the arbiters of true Islam and willing to kill anyone who disagrees. Then you have Boko Haram, who is doing largely the same thing in central Africa and has racked up an absurd body count of infidels. This week, I take another look at the latter, as Boko Haram reaches some new heights in religious massacre.
Fair warning, there is one really graphic images below and many more in links I’ve seen, don’t scroll down if you’re disturbed by dead people and copious blood. I’m not one of those people who posts trigger warnings but I think it’s important that people understand what’s really going on at the hands of fundamentalist, extremist Islam in Africa. You have been warned.
In the village of Gwoza, in northeastern Kenya, Boko Haram rampaged, reportedly killing 100 Christian villagers. Some reports state that the villagers were shot, hacked up with machetes, burned alive and cooked. Adeniyi Ojutiku related reports that perhaps the death toll was up to ten times higher than officially reported, with perhaps 1,000 people killed by Boko Haram. Survivors reported Boko Haram fighters blockading all of the roads into and out of the village, then going door to door, systematically murdering anyone they found inside. The Nigerian military abandoned their weapons and ran, vastly outgunned by the militants, leaving villagers undefended and vulnerable to whatever violence the Muslims saw fit to visit upon them.
Of course, Gwoza isn’t unique, there are many villages where the same thing is happening. At another village called Sata, resident Pirda Tada told the media that “These Christians in our village had their throats slit with knives while their hands were tied behind their backs. Some houses were bombed as the Boko Haram gunmen were chanting, ‘God is great!’ in Arabic.”
According to the Nigerian-based Jubilee Campaign, as of the end of July, 2014, Boko Haram has killed 4,239 Christians, moderate Muslims, government officials and civilians in their ongoing reign of terror across Africa. This predates the Gwoza slaughter, that figure is likely well over 5,000 now.
Yet we don’t hear anyone talking about going to help the innocent Kenyans against their own extremist Muslim slaughter, nobody wants to do bombing runs against Boko Haram, they are largely left to run rampant over an innocent populace, imposing their views on Sharia Law on people who want nothing to do with it. It’s only a matter of time before more blood runs red in the streets as these religious madmen hack and slash in the name of Allah. It’s standard operating procedure on Horror Show Sunday.
