Islam’s Terrorist African Caliphate

Posted on | January 21, 2014 | 12 Comments

Will America stand idle while this happens?

Islamist militants stormed a village in remote northeast Nigeria on Monday, torching houses and spraying them with bullets in an attack that killed 18 people, witnesses said.
The latest Boko Haram assault, on Sunday night, came hours before Nigeria’s four top military chiefs handed over to fresh commanders in a ceremony on Monday.
President Goodluck Jonathan announced the reshuffle of his entire military leadership last week in a bid to reinvigorate the fight against the insurgents.
“Most of those who survived the attack have fled the village as they do not know if they will be attacked again,” said Bulama Ibrahim, the chief of Alau Ngawo village, which was attacked sometime after 10 p.m. on Sunday. . . .
The village lies in remote northeastern Borno state, the epicenter of the insurgency and relic of Nigeria’s oldest medieval Islamic caliphate, which once prospered from trans-Saharan trade routes passing though the largely Muslim north.
Boko Haram is fighting to re-establish an Islamic kingdom in northern Nigeria, breaking away from the largely Christian south. Its fighters have killed thousands of people since they launched an uprising in mid-2009.

Just another 18 people killed by terrorists whose ambition is to forcefully take over Africa for a worldwide Islamic caliphate.

Nothing to see here. Move along.

    If Martin Luther King was still alive I suspect he would speak out against violence such as this. The savagery of Islamists in Sudan, Algeria, Mali and Nigeria is beyond disturbing and can’t be passed off as an aberration. It is part of the Islamist strategy.

    Well, it will be easier to identify spam coming from Nigeria… “I, Said Abdullah, humble servant of the Prophet (PBUH), selected you to receive $10 million because…”

    Given the Obama global retreat and apology tour, absolutely nothing will happen.

    It may be worth clarifying that the trans-Saharan trade routes may also be accurately described as “trans-Saharan slave trade routes”

    Slave trading is why the trade routes came south from the Sahara into black Africa. I have as yet to hear any criticism of Muslim slaving. They still do it too.

    While I expect so, it would have little impact. If he went to places like NYC and Chicago and saw the hustlers that have taken advantage of his name and work, I think he’d commit suicide in shame.

    Another Bush-43 initiative undone by Obama: fighting the slave trade. Obama hates people of color.

    Well, of course we weren’t just standing by, and we did take forceful action. Secretary of State Kerry seriously, seriously! scolded Nigeria for a new law banning same-sex “marriages.”

    The United Nation’s will take action, I’m sure.

    Don’t all those guns, bullets, rocket launchers, explosives, etc. the terrorists are using cost real money? Where does all that money come from in these poor countries? Somebody’s paying the bills and it sure ain’t the peasants.
