‘A Gruesome Warning’: Islamist Video Titled ‘The Killing Of Seven Christian Hostages In Nigeria’ Confirms Murder Of Foreigners


By JON GAMBRELL, Associated Press via CTPost – “A video posted online appears to show the corpses of some of the seven foreign hostages abducted by Islamic extremists in northern Nigeria and later killed, a gruesome warning of the growing dangers in the region.

The video, viewed by The Associated Press on Monday, matched still images released earlier by the Islamic extremist group Ansaru when it claimed the killings. The face of one of the corpses in the video also resembled that of one of the hostages already named by authorities.

European diplomats said Sunday that the hostages had been killed.

On Monday, Nigerian Interior Minister Abba Moro told the BBC’s Hausa language radio service that those nations said that it was ‘likely’ that their citizens had died in the attack.

‘We hope they’re alive,’ Moro said. Moro did not respond to requests for comment Monday from the AP. Nigerian officials often speak to the BBC Hausa service, as it is viewed as one of the dominant independent news sources in Nigeria’s predominantly Muslim north.

In the video, a gunman stands in sand, holding a rifle near what appears to be dead bodies. A later shot in the video shows three male corpses, one of whom appears to have been killed by a gunshot wound to the head from a high-powered weapon.

The video has no sound. An accompanying caption for the video in Arabic calls it: ‘The killing of seven Christian hostages in Nigeria.'” Read more.

    what is wrong with this picture and the growing evidence that Islam is NOT ever and has never been a religion of peace, or maybe their definition of peace is greatly different than our western definition; peace when all the world is Islamic?

      Correct.

      An Exegesis of Islamic Peace – “Islamic understanding of peace means submission or surrender. Peace comes (according to Islam) only after one surrenders or submits one’s self. Submission or surrender to whom? Submission to only Allah (Islamic God) and his messenger Muhammad. Therefore peace (Islamic) exists only inside the Dar-ul-Islam—the house of submission, after the conversion to Islam. That is the ultimate meaning of Islamic peace. The false meaning of Islam as peace misguides the gullible western non-Muslims.” Read more.
