Texas: Muslim Arrested For Making Terroristic Threats And Displaying Hoax Bomb After Four-Hour Standoff At Walmart

04/24/2014 3 comments

Hadith, Bukhari 2977, “I have been made victorious with terror” – The “Prophet” Of Islam, Mohammed

Qur’an Sura 33:21, “Indeed in Allah’s Messenger (Mohammad) you have an excellent example to follow for him who hopes in (meeting with) Allah and the Last Day …”

By Robert Spencer, Jihad Watch – “America, here is your future. Here is the future you have chosen by electing leaders who are — alm0st to a man or woman — willfully ignorant about the nature and magnitude of the jihad threat, and complacently trusting that a Muslim community in the U.S. that is largely under the control of the Muslim Brotherhood will clean its own house. Here is the future you have chosen by standing by and passively acquiescing in the demonization and marginalization of everyone — everyone — who told you about this threat honestly. Incidents like this will one day, not too long from now, be a more or less daily occurrence. You can’t say you weren’t warned.

‘Suspect in custody after bomb scare at Kemah Walmart,’ by Craig Hlavaty, Houston Chronicle, April 19 (thanks to David):

A man with a knife and several suspicious devices was arrested Saturday in a Walmart parking lot, after a four-hour stand-off that kept customers and employees trapped inside the Kemah store.

Mehrzad Malekzadeh, 35, of Sugar Land has been arrested and charged with making terroristic threats and displaying a hoax bomb, which are both class A misdemeanor charges.

Malekzadeh is currently in Galveston County Jail on a $5,000 bond.

“Several unknown devices were located in the pockets of the male suspect and attached to his person,” Kemah police said in a press release.

Kemah police were dispatched to the area around 9 a.m. in response to a report of a suspicious masked male in a car wielding a knife, first seen in a nearby Target parking lot. He later moved to parking lot of Walmart in the 200 block of FM 518.

The store was locked down around 10 a.m., as the FBI bomb squad and Kemah police responded to the threatening man and searched the area.

The scene was cleared shortly after 2 p.m. with no hazards found by FBI bomb technicians, according to spokeswoman Shauna Dunlap.

John Lamar, who works in the store’s automotive department, said that Walmart officials have advised everyone to stay clear of windows while the store was on lock down.

“They’ve come around with baskets of snacks and water for those locked down in the store,” he said on the phone.

A crowd of about 50 nervous friends and family gathered outside the store.

“I was freaked out, this stuff doesn’t happen here,” said Brandon Blackwelder, whose sister works there.

Yes, it does. And it will more often, too.” Source – Jihad Watch.

Afghan Security Guard Shoot 3 American Doctors To Death At Christian Hospital

04/24/2014 1 comment

For peaceful purposes. Islamists whose goal is to take as many lives as possible can’t bear the thought of having those around whose goal is to save them …

FOX News – “The U.S. Embassy in Afghanistan confirmed Thursday that three American doctors — including a father and son — were killed by an Afghan security guard who opened fire at a Kabul hospital.

‘With great sadness we confirm that three Americans were killed in the attack at CURE Hospital,’ said a statement posted on the Embassy’s Twitter page. ‘No other information will be released at this time.’

The shooting was the latest in a string of deadly attacks on foreign civilians in the Afghan capital this year.

Two of the dead Americans were a father and son, Minister of Health Soraya Dalil said, adding that the third American was a Cure International doctor who had worked for seven years in Kabul.

One of the doctors has been identified as Dr. Jerry Umanos, who practiced pediatric medicine at Lawndale Christian Health Center in Chicago, officials from the center said.

Dalil said an American nurse also was wounded in the attack.

‘A child specialist doctor who was working in this hospital for the last seven years for the people of Afghanistan was killed, and also two others who were here to meet him, and they were also American nationals, were killed,’ Dalil said. ‘The two visitors were father and son, and a woman who was also in the visiting group was wounded.’

The alleged attacker was a member of the Afghan Public Protection Force assigned to guard the hospital, according to District Police Chief Hafiz Khan. He said the man’s motive was not yet clear…

According to its website, the Cure International Hospital was founded in 2005 by invitation of the Afghan Ministry of Health. It sees 37,000 patients a year, specializing in child and maternity health as well as general surgery. It is affiliated with the Christian charity Cure International, which operates in 29 countries with the motto ‘curing the sick and proclaiming the kingdom of God.’” Read more

Qur’an Sura 2:191-193, “And slay them wherever ye find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution [of Muslims] is worse than slaughter [of non-Muslims] … fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for Allah.”

Qur’an: Sura 4:89, “Have no unbelieving friends. Kill the unbelievers wherever you find them.”

Qur’an Sura 9:29-30, “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day … nor acknowledge the religion of [Islam], even if they are of the People of the Book … the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them …”

Egypt: “Every Friday Is A Day Of Death” For Christians In Cairo

04/23/2014 Leave a comment

Fridays are often a day of death for Christians — and non-Muslims in general — all across the Muslim world …

Qur’an Sura 9:14, 30, “Fight them, Allah will punish them by your hands and bring them to disgrace … even if they are of the People of the Book … the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them …”

Revelation 13:15, “And it was allowed to give breath to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast might even speak and might cause those who would not worship the image of the beast to be slain.”

International Christian Concern – “The situation in Egypt continues to deteriorate for the nation’s Christians. As systematic kidnappings of Christians plagues the Minia region to its south, reports confirm the brutal murder of a Christian woman by Muslim Brotherhood radicals in Cairo. Viciously stabbed to death, Mary Sameh George was murdered for hanging a cross from her review mirror. The mob responsible for her death set fire to Mary’s car shortly after taking her life, sending a message of repression and violence to Christians local to Ain Shams.

04/22/2014 Egypt (GlobalDispatch) – A shocking new report details an Islamic mob of Muslim Brotherhood supporters in Egypt attacking and murdering a Christian woman for having a cross hanging on her car mirror. The report on Monday chronciles eyewitness account of the beating, stabbing, and shooting death of Mary Sameh George in Cairo on Martch 28.

“Every Friday the supporters of Muslim Brotherhood organize a march after Friday prayer in Ain Shams,” the witness told the International Christian Concern (ICC). Identified only as Wahid, he says that “On this Friday afternoon, violent clashes took place between the supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood and the security forces during their march.”

Mary, in her mid-20s, was parked near the Virgin Mary and Archangel Michael Coptic Orthodox Church to deliver medicine and food to the elderly after work that day. The protesters headed towards this church after the clash and attacked Mary when they saw her cross hanging from the rear view mirror of her car.

Wahid says the mob jumped on the car, collapsing the roof, and then dragged her from the vehicle, beating and stabbing her repeatedly. “They were chanting ‘Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar’ and cursing her while stabbing her,” Wahid said. “Then one of them shot her in the back and that led to her death. After killing her they set her car on fire.”

The War Against Christians In Africa

04/23/2014 Leave a comment

“Nobody shall be worshipped but Allah and Mohammed is his prophet.’” Or so they say. I’ve read the end of the Book and when all is said and done nobody shall be worshipped but Yahweh, and the false prophet will be cast alive into the lake of fire …

Revelation 19:20, 20:10, “And the beast was captured, and with it the false prophet who in its presence had done the signs by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped its image. These two were thrown alive into the lake of fire that burns with sulfur… and the devil who had deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur where the beast and the false prophet were, and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.”

Recommended: The Mark of the Beast – What Your Church May Not Be Telling You

By William Borst, Catholic Journal – “On September 21, 2013 a shocked world watched as Islamic gunmen attacked the Westgate shopping mall in Nairobi, Kenya targeting Christians, Westerners, and Muslims who were seen as not true-believers. The attack lasted four days, leaving 72 dead, including 61 civilians, six Kenyan soldiers and five attackers. More than 200 people were wounded in this attack.

The Westgate massacre was only part of a larger war against Christians that raged across Africa over the past three years. Stories of atrocities are numerous and horrific. The brutality of these attacks should awaken Christians globally and be a warning to Western leaders that the attack on the American embassy in Benghazi and the later Westgate killing spree were not isolated events, but part of a continuing pattern. Expect more reports of atrocities committed against Christians in the region.

The Islamist terrorists who are committing these atrocities in the name of religion make the Romans who persecuted Christians in ancient times look like 18th- century European philosophes. Eventually Rome converted to the powerful message brought by Christians — one that promised peace to the world through the salvation of Christ. These Islamist terrorists are not open to reason or conversion to the Christian message of ‘love thy neighbor.’ These fanatical Islamists seek to impose their beliefs through the sword by bringing death to the infidel unless their narrow interpretation of the Koran is accepted.

The Westgate Horror

The Westgate shopping mall proved an easy target for an Islamist gunman who shot Westerners on sight and rounded up natives suspected of being Christians. When dozens of militants wearing black turbans entered the upscale shopping mall frequented by Westerners and wealthy Kenyans, the terrorist began firing assault rifles and throwing grenades. Victims included six British citizens as well as others from France, Canada, the Netherlands, Australia, Peru, India, Ghana, South Africa and China.

Witnesses said that the gunman asked shoppers held hostage questions about Islam. Merely stating that one was a Muslim wasn’t enough. Terrorists demanded that those who claimed the faith recite verses from the Koran or name the Prophet Mohammed’s mother. Those who passed the test were allowed to walk away, while those who could not were summarily executed, children among them. One witness described her experience to the press this way: ‘I saw people being shot all around me, some with blood pouring from bad wounds. I was just praying, ‘God, keep me alive’ and that my day hadn’t come.’

A Pattern of Violence

The Westgate attack caught the world’s attention, but behind the headlines were two years of previous incidents of violence in Kenya and across the region that drew little attention in the West. From late 2010 through 2013 at least Read more…

Islam’s Religious War With Everyone

04/22/2014 1 comment

Throughout history, Islamists have never been able to win the war of words. Circular logic, the common senselessness of its incoherent theological dictates and its inhumanity towards humanity leave much to be desired for any rational human being. As such, Islamists are therefore forced to rely not upon the war of words, but upon the war of violent jihad — the sword of Islam — and their state of imposed delusion in an effort to win the only battles they can manage to muster, including those against fellow Muslims

Genesis 16:11-12, “The angel of the LORD also said to her: ‘You are now pregnant and you will give birth to a son. You shall name him Ishmael, for the LORD has heard of your misery. He will be a wild donkey of a man; his hand will be against everyone and everyone’s hand against him, and he will live in hostility toward all his brothers.’”

Hadith, Sahih Muslim 1:33a, “The Messenger of Allah [Mohammed] said: ‘I have been commanded to fight against people till they testify that there is no god but Allah, that Mohammad is the messenger of Allah, and they establish [Islamic] prayer …”

By Daniel Greenfield, FrontPage Mag – “Few divides are as impossible to bridge as those of religion. You either believe or you don’t.

When it comes to Islam, non-Muslims are expected to take its goodwill on faith. If you believe your eyes and ears, Islam and violence go together like peanut butter and jelly. But if you believe Muslims and their spin doctors with academic degrees, Muslims are the victims of other religions.

If Muslims fighting Christians, Jews, Hindus and Buddhists are the victims of non-Muslims, what are we to make of Muslims fighting other Muslims in Syria, Lebanon and Iraq? Religious civil wars make it hard to believe that Muslims are the victims of other religions instead of the authors of their own violence.

Religions have a long history of not getting along with one another, but there is only one religion that has never gotten along with any other religion, is engaging in a religious war with every religion that exists, with atheists who have no religion, and even with its own co-religionists.

Is all this violence someone else’s fault? Or is it Islam’s fault?

Muslim hostility to Christians and Jews is not a phenomenon that began with the modern State of Israel or American foreign policy.

Muslims have warred with Christians and Jews as minorities and persecuted them as majorities. Academic apologists claim that Muslim hostility toward Christians derived from an ongoing conflict, but at no time during the history of Islam until the twentieth century did the Jews have a functioning state.

Israel has conveniently become the focus and explanation for Muslim hostility toward Jews, but that fails to explain over a thousand years of Muslim hatred and persecution … long before Herzl or the IDF.

Why did Muslims persecute and kill Jews long before Zionism was even a word? For the same reason that they killed Christians.

Islam hated Judaism and Christianity from the start. The Koran urges Muslims not to befriend Jews or Christians (Koran 5:51) speaks of lenmity and hatredl with Christians (Koran 5:15) and the Jews (Koran 5:65) who are also to be cursed. The Jews are accused of lcreating disorderl (Koran 5:65) and Christians are accused of worshiping their priests (Koran 9:31). The Jews and Christians believe in evil things (Koran 4:52) and Allah’s curse will be upon them (Koran 9:30).

Muslims don’t hate and kill Jews because of Israel. They hate Israel because it is Jewish.

September 11 was part of an ongoing war against Christians dating back over a thousand years.

‘Our Youngest Hostage’: Syrian Islamists Post Shocking Photo Of Tiny Christian Toddler, Guns Pointed At Head

04/22/2014 1 comment

Behold the Beasts of the Earth. They are sick. They are inhumane. They are evil. And I wouldn’t be surprised in the least if some of these guns are among those being supplied by our own Western governments

Revelation 6:8, “And I looked, and behold a [chlōros - green] horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts [thērion - savage, brutal, beastial men] of the earth…”

By Raymond Ibrahim, Islam Translated – “According to Sham Times and other Arabic websites, jihadi social media networks posted the above picture of a child sitting on the ground while surrounded by armed men pointing their rifles at him.  The caption appearing with the picture, purportedly posted by a supporter of the Free Syrian Army, is ‘Our youngest hostage from among the hostile sects of Kessab.’

Kessab is a predominantly Christian Armenian village in Syria near the Turkish border.  Earlier it was invaded by jihadis, who terrorized, pillaged churches, and prompted some 2000 residents to flee.  Initial reports had stated that about a dozen families remained as hostages.

Since the picture appeared on Arabic social media, many have expressed shock and outrage, condemning the Syrian ‘rebels,’ while others cast doubt on the authenticity of the picture.

Of course, those wondering what the jihadis have to gain from taking such a picture and making it public would do well to remember that these are the same ‘rebels’ who decapitate people and wave their severed and bloodied heads in front of cameras while smiling; these are the same ‘freedom fighters’ who literally eat their victims on camera.

Surely ‘teasing’ an infidel toddler – a subhuman – with their rifles and sharing it with their sadistic comrades via the Internet for a ‘laugh’ should not be too surprising?

At any rate, the fact remains: the ‘Free Syrian Army,’ along with other ‘rebel’ groups operating in Syria, are guilty of countless barbaric crimes against humanity — including against women and children.

‘Carnage’: Nigerian Islamists Burn Down Christian Church And Homes On Easter Sunday, Murder Over 150

For peaceful purposes …

Qur’an Sura 8:59a, “The infidels should not think that they can get away from us. Prepare against them whatever arms and weaponry you can muster so that you may terrorize them …”

By Robert Spencer, Jihad Watch – “‘In response, the youths of the Wukari communities – were said to have organized themselves – and had reacted to attack a Mosque and burn it down. The youths were reported to join the attack against the Boko Haram jihadists.- If that reaches the mainstream media, it will be reported as Christians attacking the mosque out of -Islamophobia,- with no mention of the Muslims burning down the church. Note also that -the acting governor – is a -Boko Haram sympathizer.-

‘Police and Boko Haram Massacre Over 150 Dead,’ 247ureports.com, April 21:

Information reaching 247ureports.com indicates that another Boko Haram offensive have taken place again – only days after the massacre that took over 200 lives in Nyanya, Abuja federal capital territory.

According to the information, unknown gunmen launched attack at select communities of Wukari local government area in Taraba State. The attack began at about 1:30am on Sunday Easter morning and continued till 3pm Sunday Easter afternoon. The police image maker confirmed to 247ureports.com that the attacks began in the middle of the night in a manner resembling that of Kaura community [Kaduna] attacks by Fulani herdsmen. According to the police, the attacks initially was thought to be Fulani herdsmen but as the attacks progressed, it became obvious that the attackers were most likely Boko Haram jihadists.

It was confirmed that a church was burnt down during the attack – Christian Church of Nigeria – along with many homes belonging to non-Muslims. Eyewitness account indicates that fifteen corpse were seen littered on the streets – within the line of fire.

In response, the youths of the Wukari communities – were said to have organized themselves – and had reacted to attack a Mosque and burn it down. The youths were reported to join the attack against the Boko Haram jihadists.

The information remains sketchy but police sources told our reporter that the “carnage of this attack” may end up worse than the Nyanya attack. The police source declined to give the number of dead. The source points to two personalities as responsible for the violent attacks – as Danladi Shehu and Tanimu. He also points to the acting governor as a Boko Haram sympathizer.

Egypt: Rate Of Christian Girls Abducted And Attacked By ‘Extremists’ On The Rise

Daniel 11:37a, 38-39a, “Neither shall he regard the God [YHWH] of his fathers [Abraham and Ishmael], nor the desire of women … But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers [Abraham and Ishmael] knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things. Thus shall he do in the most strong holds with a strange god, whom he shall acknowledge and increase with glory …”

In the name of “Allah” the most [un]merciful and most [un]compassionate. In 2012, the National Council for Women revealed that girls were sexually harassed on average 7 times every 200 meters in Egypt, with well over two-thirds of all women suffering harassment on a daily basis. This type of behavior — including rapes, abductions and forced “marriages” — are part and parcel of the Islamist culture that is fomenting throughout the Muslim world …

Al Rod Al Anf, Volume 2, Page 182: “You see [our god Allah] will soon make you inherit their land, their treasures and make you sleep with their women.” – The “prophet” Mohammed

By Perry Chiaramonte, Fox News – “Young Christian women are facing a greater risk of being kidnapped by extremists, tortured, and even forced to convert to Islam since the Arab Spring ended in 2011.

This year already has seen a spike in the incidents, according to a report by the non-profit advocacy group International Christian Concern. It has been estimated by the ICC and other watchdog groups in the region that there have been 500 reported cases of young women being attacked by Muslim men since 2011, but unreported cases could send the figure much higher.

The girls are often assaulted, raped, kidnapped, forced to change their faith and sometimes killed, the ICC said. Making matter worse, nothing is being done by local authorities to prevent it in provinces across Egypt, according to officials from both the ICC and the Clarion Project, a US-based non-profit think tank and advocacy group.

‘Not only are they turning a blind eye, they are often compliant,’ Issac Six, a spokesman for the ICC told FoxNews.com, citing one incident in which a father was assaulted by an officer for asking too many questions about efforts to have his abducted daughter returned.

‘It’s pervasive; police at the local level are not stopping the abductions. There needs to be more pressure from the top,’ he added. ‘We have seen cases before where we’ve seen victims returned when the police put pressure on the kidnappers. We know it’s possible, unfortunately, the police are often complacent.’

Six added that the problem is largely ignored by the international community and that the U.S. needs to be more vocal about the issue in its dialogue with the Egyptian government.

One reported incident occurred in the city of Luxor as recently as February when 15-year-old Amira Hafez Wahib attended a morning prayer service at a local church, according to the study from ICC. Amira had asked her mother if she could go to a store near the church to buy an item. Her mother let her go but urged her to hurry right back.

Pakistan: Yet Another Muslim Kills Yet Another Christian For Not Converting To Islam

And yet another will be threatened and killed for the faith of Jesus as you read this …

Revelation 6:9-11, “… I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the testimony which they held. And they cried with a loud voice, saying, ‘How long, O Lord, holy and true, until You judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?’ Then a white robe was given to each of them; and it was said to them that they should rest a little while longer, until both the number of their fellow servants and their brethren, who would be killed as they were, was completed.”

Pakistan Christian Post – “Haroon, alias Sunny, aged 22, was murdered by a Muslim colleague who shot him dead on April 16, 2014. He had recently started work at an Islamic [business] in Lahore as a sweeper, where he worked alongside Muslim security guard Umer Farooq.

Farooq mocked Haroon’s Christian faith on a daily basis and forced him to embrace Islam. He started showing dreams to Haroon and told him that he was good looking and should embrace Islam. He also promised to him a life of luxury and marriage to a rich Muslim woman, but Haroon did not care about these things and refused to embrace Islam.

When Haroon told his father what was going on, he was advised to ignore Farooq. On April 16, 2014 Haroon went to work and Farooq again started a conversation about religion and began pressurizing him to embrace Islam. Haroon asked Farooq politely why he was so adamant for him to embrace Islam as he was not ready from his heart. He again clearly refused to convert, stating that he was a true follower of Jesus Christ. Farooq then became aggressive and opened fire on Haroon, with a bullet hitting him the head, killing him on the spot. He later started shouting that Haroon had attempted suicide.

The police took the security guard into custody immediately, but did not register an FIR because they wanted to convert the murder case into suicide. When the local Christians heard about the murder they came out of their houses and staged a protest in front of the police station – it was only then that they lodged an FIR.

Umer Farooq is currently in custody and his case is under investigation.

Nasir Saeed, Director CLAAS-UK, has condemned the killing.” Read more.

Central African Republic: Islamic Jihadists Murder Christian Priest, Mutilate His Corpse

For peaceful purposes …

Qur’an 9:14, “Fight them, Allah will punish them by your hands and bring them to disgrace …”

By Robert Spencer, Jihad Watch – “The Seleka rebels are Muslims who ousted the country’s Christian president and replaced him with a Muslim, and terrorized the CAR’s Christian population until they formed ‘anti-balaka’ militias — the balaka was a kind of machete that the Muslims had used to kill Christians — and began to fight back. The international media has focused entirely on Muslims as victims of Christian atrocities. No atrocities by anyone are ever justified; the coverage has been astonishingly one-sided. Here, as in so many places, Islamic jihadists began the conflict, and there would be no conflict without them.

Malaysia: National Fatwa Council Forbids Muslims From Saying ‘Rest In Peace’ To Dead Christians

04/18/2014 3 comments

For peaceful purposes. Apparently it’s a great sin for a Muslim to wish that an “infidel” rest in peace when “Allah” says they will burn in pieces …

Qur’an Sura 3:64, “Verily Allah has cursed the Unbelievers [Jews and Christians] and has prepared for them a Blazing Fire to dwell in forever. No protector will they find, nor savior…  ‘Give them double torment and curse them with a very great Curse!’”

Malaysia Chronicle – “Following the death of Karpal Singh and the outpouring of grief, Muslims were reminded by the National Fatwa Council today that they were not encouraged to use the phrase ‘Rest in Peace’ (RIP) to a non-Muslim because the term had Christian connotations.

In a statement issued on its website, http://www.e-fatwa.gov.my, the National Fatwa Council said Muslims could express their condolences to non-Muslim families.

‘Condolences can be expressed to a non-Muslim family as long as there are no religious implications,’ it said.

‘Wishes such as ‘I sympathise with what has happened to you’ or ‘we express our sadness at the loss in your family’ are allowed.

‘However, a Muslim is definitely not encouraged to wish a non-Muslim person ‘Rest in Peace’,’ the council said.

The council said RIP was an assumption that the non-Muslim person would receive God’s blessings.

“It is similar to the Latin prayer of ‘May his soul and the souls of all the departed faithful by God’s mercy rest in peace’.”

The council said this sentence was a form of prayer regularly used by Christians, especially during the 18th century and regularly engraved on tombstones.

‘From an Islamic point of view, a person who has died in blasphemy will not receive God’s forgiveness and blessings,’ it said.” Read more.

Slaughter In Nigeria — Where Is Obama’s State Department?

04/16/2014 3 comments

Aside from (reluctantly and half-heartedly) designating Boko Haram an actual terrorist organization, the State Department is MIA. Again. The utter lack of an efficacious foreign policy is not surprising, of course, considering some of the recent words and deeds of the man the Secretary of State himself must answer to directly …

By Faith J. H. McDonnell, FrontPage Mag – “An explosion devastated a busy bus station on the outskirts of the Nigerian capital of Abuja on Monday, April 14, 2014. It was the latest in a series of terrorist attacks on Africa’s most populous nation. No group had claimed credit for the attack as of Monday, but Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan laid the blame at the feet of Boko Haram, the Islamist terrorist group seeking the eradication of Christians and the Islamization of Nigeria.

The blast took place at 6:55 a.m. according to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN). Reuters reported at least 71 dead and 124 injured, but on Tuesday, Punch raised the number dead to 89, including three perpetrators, with 257 injured. And this was not the week’s only attack.

Just days earlier, Boko Haram jihadists killed some 200 in Borno, a northeastern Nigerian state that has seen far more than its share of jihad terrorism. Punch reported that on April 9-10 attacks took place on communities in several towns, as well as on a teachers’ training college and a group of students traveling to their matriculation exams. Boko Haram seemed determined to show that ‘western education is forbidden.’

Rarer was Monday’s attack on Abuja’s Nyanya Mass Transit Park – demonstrating the terrorists’ brazenness, operating in the country’s capital, as well as the northern and middle state belts to which they have already laid claim. The blast destroyed 16 high-capacity buses and damaged another 24, as well as affecting smaller vehicles, a police spokesman told Reuters. Many of the buses were loaded with commuters, so the attack left a hellish scene of charred bodies, body parts, and twisted metal. In Tuesday’s report, Punch told of an eyewitness who said that the attack was carried out by four insurgents in a Volkswagen Golf.

According to NAN, many of the commuters in this transit point for the satellite communities of the Federal Capital Territory surrounding Abuja were on their way to work and their businesses. But Nigerian attorney and human rights activist Emmanuel Ogebe pointed out that this attack took place on the first day of Holy Week in a country in which Easter is a major holiday.

‘Abuja is emptying out as people travel to their home states for the long holiday,’ said Ogebe. He believes the bus station was targeted deliberately on the week of Easter. This would be no surprise, as a majority of Islamist attacks in Nigeria target Christians, Christian holidays (holy days), and have occurred at churches and Christian schools and universities.
