Nigeria: Islamists in Northern Nigeria Killing Christians to Eliminate Christianity in the Northern States

A ‘committee’ is needed to ‘investigate’ Boko Haram and to look into the ‘reasons for the violence’?  Well, investigative committee, here are just a few of many that they see every day within the pages of their Qur’an:

 Surah 5:51, “O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people.”

Surah 3:151, “We shall cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve…”

Surah 4:89, “Have no unbelieving friends. Kill the unbelievers wherever you find them.”

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

Surah 8:12b, “… terrorize and behead those who believe in scriptures other than the Qur’an.”

By Michael Ireland – “WASHINGTON, DC (ANS) — Members of a radical Islamic group, Boko Haram, have killed at least ten Christians in Maiduguri, Nigeria over the past two months in what one Christian leader is calling a ‘silent killing’ of Christians.

In an interview with International Christian Concern (ICC – http://www.persecution.org ), an anonymous local church leader explained, ‘Boko Haram is seeking to eliminate Christianity because they want Islamic (Sharia) law. They don’t want to see anything Christian in the northern states [of Nigeria]. That is why churches are being persecuted and Muslims who don’t follow the [hardline teachings of] Boko Haram are also persecuted.’

ICC says Boko Haram is close to achieving its goal of eliminating Christianity from Maiduguri.

In its latest report on the situation, ICC said: ‘Most of the Christians have fled the city in fear of further attacks by the Islamists. Of the churches that remain, some have felt compelled to suspend their services to protect their congregations.’

ICC explained that the Nigerian government, which has also been attacked by Boko Haram, deployed security forces to quell the violence, but came under sharp criticism from human rights groups for excessive use of force and the indiscriminate killing of civilians. The government of Nigeria has now established a committee to investigate the members of Boko Haram and look into the reasons for the violence.” Read more.
