Nigeria: Over Three Million People Facing Humanitarian Crisis Because Of Islamic Jihad

The bitter fruit of Islam. Scripture said things like this would happen

By Robert Spencer, Jihad Watch – “How much have you heard about this in the mainstream media, compared to the claims of persecution of Muslims by Christians in the Central African Republic and by Buddhists in Burma? When the perpetrators are Islamic jihadists, the mainstream media and the world ‘human rights community’ goes strangely silent. Why is that? Is every last mainstream media reporter in the world convinced that innocent Muslims will be victimized if they report honestly and fully about Islamic jihad activity? Are innocent Catholics victimized by honest reporting of the priest sex scandals? Of course not — and the argument is just as preposterous in this context.

‘Nigeria’s Boko Haram insurgency ‘affects millions,’’ from the BBC, March 26 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

More than three million people are facing a humanitarian crisis in three northern Nigerian states hit by an Islamist-led insurgency, the government’s relief agency has said.

The conflict has displaced about 250,000 people since January, it added.

President Goodluck Jonathan declared a state of emergency in the three states last year to crush the insurgency.

However, the militant Islamist group Boko Haram has stepped up attacks in recent months.

The group operates mostly in Borno, Yobe and Adamawa, where the state of emergency is in force.
‘Unprecedented crisis’

In a statement, the Nigerian government’s National Emergency Management Agency (Nema) said the “needs of the affected population are increasing by the day and the support of all is urgently required”.

Borno was worst affected, with about 1.3 million people – most of them women, children and the elderly – in need of aid, Nema said.

In Adamawa, the number stood at around one million and in Yobe at more than 770,000, it said.

About 250,000 people were living in camps or with relatives and friends after being forced out of their homes, the agency added.

Nigerian Red Cross Society representative Soji Adeniyi said what has happening in the north-east was unprecedented.

“We have never had this kind of displacement caused by conflicts before in the country,” he is quoted by Nigeria’s privately-owned This Day newspaper as saying.

Earlier this month, Boko Haram fighters attacked an army barracks in Maiduguri, the capital of Borno state.

Its fighters also looted and torched several villages and towns in the state after launching attacks with rocket-propelled grenades and assault rifles.

Last month, the group was accused of killing at least 29 people in an attack on a rural boarding school in Yobe.

Boko Haram has waged an insurgency since 2009 to create a strict Islamic state in northern Nigeria.

The president insists that the state of emergency has been effective, saying the militants have been confined to a small area near the border with Cameroon.

Unsealed: A Closer Look At Revelation 6 And ‘The Four Horsemen Of The Apocalypse’ – “John describes the rider of the Black Horse in Revelation 6:5 as having ‘scales’ or ‘balances’ in his hands, employing the Greek word ‘zygos‘ which is also used metaphorically to refer to any sort of ‘burden’ or ‘bondage’ as well as the imposition of ‘troublesome laws’… Because of ‘Sharia lawlessness’ the ‘Religion of Peace’ is typified by widespread destruction and disparity, and any number of recent headlines bear this out all too well… In Mali, 4.6 million people are threatened with starvation following Islamist advances in the north. Starvation threatens more than 7 million citizens in Afghanistan as over 90% of the country’s agriculture is destroyed by drought. In Somalia, Islamist militants deprive 1.3 million people of food, clean water and health care after banning humanitarian aid… The fruit of Islam and its laws have produced and will continue to produce the type of conditions that precipitate and perpetuate all sort of pestilences, all manner of plagues, any number of conflicts and hardships both inside and outside the Islamic world.” Read more.
