Nigeria is not totally an Islamic state.
At least, not yet.
It is half-Christian, half-Islamic.
As a result, oppressive sharia law has been introduced in the north,
and a brutal Islamic jihad against the Christians rages.
This is pretty much what Islam has done everywhere
for 1,400 years.
Good luck to the Christians and the liberal Muslims
trying to stop it happening to them.
Summary of Islamic slaughter in Nigeria, 2006-13.
From The Economist
- The Islamic jihadists
are waging a war of extermination against the Christians.
- Their name means "Education is Sinful".
Which rather sums up the global Islamic jihad.
- Islamist insurgency in Nigeria
- Terror attacks in Nigeria
- Boko Haram attacks
- Boko Haram emerged in 2009
campaigns to enslave Nigeria under a sort of "Pol Pot" version of Islam.
says the belief that the
world is round is contrary to Islam and should be rejected,
along with evolution and the theory that rain comes from water evaporated by the sun.
- To make their point, they ... slaughter innocent people.
- Robert Spencer,
July 27, 2009:
"Imagine the quips, the digs, and the New York Times analyses if there were a Christian group calling itself "Education Is Sin.""
Boko Haram violence, July 2009.
Nigerian Christian pastors beheaded by Boko Haram, July 2009:
"They .. cut their heads one after the other and thereafter, shouted allah akbar in wild celebration
An eye witness .. gave us details of how the pastor was killed. He told us they were persuading him to accept Islam and he said over his dead body. He was even said to have preached Christ to Mohammed Yusuf and that reportedly angered the sect leader who then .. ordered that the pastor and others be killed immediately".
"male captives were given a choice between conversion to Islam or death
... Boko Haram leader, Yusuf Mohammed, personally oversaw the forcible Islamisation of hostages, and the execution of anyone who refused to convert."
- Justice came calling for
shortly after this.
But Boko Haram carried on.
- Slaughter of Christians:
- The satanic Boko Haram
bomb and shoot Christians at church, Christmas Day, 25 December 2011.
Boko Haram mass slaughter, Jan 2012.
Boko Haram slaughters Christians at Easter, April 2012.
Boko Haram slaughters more Christians at church, April 2012.
Boko Haram massacres Christian students at university in Nigeria, Oct 2012.
Like Nazis, they separate the Christians from the Muslims, and kill the Christians.
- Another Sunday:
Another day of Islamic slaughter.
Another bombing of Christians at church in Nigeria, Nov 2012. 14 killed.
Suicide bombing of Christian churches seems to be the norm now.
Islamic jihadists murder at least 62 people, including 22 at church service, Jan 2014.
- Boko Haram slaughters 100 in Christian village, Feb 2014.
- Boko Haram slaughters 135 civilians, Apr 2014.
- Boko Haram bombs bus station, killing 90, Apr 2014.
Jihadists burn church on Easter Sunday, murder over 150, Apr 2014.
- Targeting children:
- Boko Haram killer gets doubts, converts to Christianity.
Boko Haram kills his children.
Boko Haram burns a Christian orphanage, Jan 2012, leaving the orphans homeless.
A comment wonders about the infected minds of the Mujahideen, that they can celebrate attacking orphans:
"A mentality that sees such heartless deeds in heroic or godly terms is simply diseased."
Boko Haram kills the children of a security forces officer in front of their mother, Nov 2012.
The father, a member of the Nigerian State Security Service, was away,
so the brave jihadis killed his children, age 5, 7 and 12, in front of their mother.
Child suicide bomber, age about 10, used to kill 19 people in market, Jan 2015. The Islamist way of war.
- The jihad against schools:
- For inscrutable reasons
(but mainly because the jihad allows any evil)
Boko Haram has started slaughtering random children at school.
- Boko Haram kills primary school headmaster and his family, July 2013. They kill his wife and four children.
- Boko Haram slaughters children at school in Yobe State, 6 July 2013. They kill at least 42, shooting children point blank and setting them on fire.
For no reason other than their belief in "Allah", a god of violence and death, who does not exist.
- Boko Haram calls for jihad against schools, July 2013:
"Teachers who teach western education? We will kill them! We will kill them in front of their students, and tell the students to henceforth study the Qur'an."
Boko Haram kills 59 children at Nigerian boarding school, Feb 2014.
They shot the children, cut their throats, and burned them alive.
Boko Haram suicide bombs school, kills 48, Nov 2014.
- The jihad against medicine:
- Sex perverts:
Typical Islamist warfare:
No morality. No honour.
French family, including 4 children, kidnapped by Boko Haram
in Cameroon, Feb 2013.
Taken across border into Nigeria.
The children are aged 5, 8, 10 and 12.
Aren't they the big brave men, holding frightened children at gunpoint
threats to kill the children
"Implement our demands. If you leave out even one, we will kill these people."

Boko Haram is the same satanic evil as Al Qaeda.
The appeal of evil and cruelty and violence to some humans is eternal.
The existence of either group is a stain on humanity.
abducted 300 Christian schoolgirls to use for rape in April 2014
- and suddenly
the western left paid some attention
to the Nigerian jihad.
For some reason,
after 5 long years of Boko Haram atrocities,
it was this
finally got the western media and the western left interested in Boko Haram.
It wasn't even the first time Boko Haram abducted girls to rape.
300 Christian schoolgirls kidnapped by Boko Haram rapists to use for rape, Apr 2014.
- Unimpressive commentary:
- When people who never normally pay any attention to the jihad suddenly notice
you know they're going to write rubbish.
And that is indeed what happened.
Boko Haram is caused by the West.
So says Lindsey German
of the pro-jihad
Stop the War Coalition
and the pro-jihad
says jihadists like Boko Haram are responding to western oppression,
rather than having their own agenda to impose their religion on Nigeria.
"If Islamism is now a threat to western interests in growing parts of Africa, it is one that they have played a large part in creating."
That is the only sentence in her article where the word "Islam" appears.
The words "jihad" and "sharia" never appear.
Boko Haram is caused by poverty. So says Bob Geldof, May 2014.
"Boko Haram is an excrescence of poverty, as famine is,
as hunger is, as corruption is, as war is, as lack of education and health is.
If you've got a job and you've got some stature, some dignity and you have a family, then you don't pick up a gun.
If the only way of earning any money whatsoever is to take a gun and direct it at a target ..."
Such complete drivel.
Boko Haram is caused by religion, not by poverty.
This is the same Geldof who never said clearly that the
Live Aid famine was
caused by communism.
- Boko Haram is caused by climate change. So says Nafeez Ahmed, The Guardian, 9 May 2014.
"Instability in Nigeria .. has been growing steadily over the last decade - and one reason is climate change.
the hundreds of innocent girls kidnapped in Nigeria are not just victims of Islamist fanaticism; they are also victims of failed foreign, economic and security policies tied to our infernal addiction to black gold."
- So the West should feel guilty
when Islamic religious maniacs rape and slaughter.
But why stop there?
Maybe the Christian schoolgirls themselves should feel guilty.
Maybe they did something to anger Boko Haram.
Creepy use of language in the pro-jihad English paper
, 29 Apr 2014.
Umm, don't you mean "sex slaves" and "mass rape".
"Appalling language from the Guardian. Makes it sounds like one big party."
What Nigeria needs are drones and US/Western special forces.
The counterjihad has been covering this story non-stop since the start in 2009:
A search in May 2014 of "Boko Haram" on the
gives 13,200 results
, going all the way back to 2009.
Leftists, Islamists and the media have been ignoring this story for years:
A search in May 2014 of "Boko Haram" on the
Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR)
gives 27 results, all about the recent abduction that got media attention.
And now we are meant to believe that CAIR opposes Boko Haram.
they obviously feel strongly about it.
In reality, what they really hate is people who report on
Boko Haram and other Islamic violence.
How I felt when the left suddenly noticed the Nigerian jihad in 2014.
While the West went back to sleep,
the jihad massively escalated.
Nigeria needs western military support.
- More slaughter:
- Boko Haram kills 300 in Gamborou Ngala, May 2014.
- Boko Haram kills 120 in Jos, May 2014.
- June 2014 Islamic slaughter in Nigeria

- Boko Haram captures an entire city, Gwoza,
and declares a "caliphate", Aug 2014.
Boko Haram kills Christians who refuse to convert to Islam, report, Oct 2014.
Boko Haram storms two churches, murders 31 Christians as they worship, Oct 2014.
- Massive suicide bombing at main mosque in Kano city, Nov 2014. 120 dead.
Oppose Boko Haram: They will suicide bomb your mosque during Friday prayers.
- Baga massacre, Jan 2015. Maybe the biggest mass killing to date.
- Boko Haram carries on raping:
- The girls kidnapped in Apr 2014 were taken from the town of Chibok.
- In Nov 2014, Boko Haram
seized Chibok entirely
and implemented brutal Sharia rule.
- Feb 2016 summary
of the jihad against Christians:
11,500 Dead, 13,000 Churches Destroyed.
- Islamic State beheads Christians in Nigeria, Dec 2019.
- Koshebe massacre, Nov 2020.
- Owo church massacre in Nigeria, June 2022. 40 Christians murdered at Mass.
- Some well-meaning Muslims claim Boko Haram are "un-Islamic".
But they fail to answer certain questions.
In a nutshell:
Can anyone explain how Boko Haram abducting girls to use as "wives" is any different to
what the Prophet Mohammad did with
- Or indeed, how are Boko Haram any different from Moses in
Arsalan Iftikhar (of CAIR), 6 May 2014, claims Boko Haram should read the Quran:
"we're utterly certain that it condemns kidnapping young girls and selling them into slavery
... They must have also missed the numerous times that the Prophet Muhammad categorically stated .. that women or children were never to be harmed".
That's nice, but he never addresses the cases of Safiyya and Rayhana.
- Book 8, Hadith 3432
says captive women can be raped.
(Maybe this is where Boko Haram got the idea.)
The hadith says:
"Having overcome them and taken them captives, the Companions of [Muhammad]
seemed to refrain from having intercourse with captive women because of their husbands being polytheists.
Then Allah, Most High, sent down regarding that:
"And women already married, except those whom your right hands possess"
(i.e. they were lawful for them when their 'Idda period came to an end)."
I'm not sure what the jihadis are fighting for, since Nigeria already has sharia.
Nigeria as a whole is only 54 percent Muslim,
46 percent non-Muslim.
But already the north of Nigeria has brutal sharia law.
Atheists are arrested.
People who leave Islam are arrested.
Everywhere it goes,
Islam means the oppression of non-Muslims under sharia.
Boko Haram laid out their plan for total jihad in 2009.
You could see it on Jihad Watch
if anyone was interested. (But no one was.)
They promised to enslave all of Nigeria and kill all its Christians.
"the Southern states, especially the infidel Yoruba, Igbon and Ijaw infidels will be our immediate target.
We will teach Nigeria a lesson, a very bitter one.
from the Month of August, we shall carry out series of bombing in Southern and Northern Nigerian cities, beginning with Lagos, Ibadan, Enugu and Port Harcourt. The bombing will not stop until .. Western Civilisation is wiped off from Nigeria.
We will not stop until these evil cities are turned into ashes.
We call on all Northerners [to] join the struggle for Islamic Society
that will be corruption free, Sodom free, where security will be guaranteed and
there will be peace under Islam.
ITS EITHER YOU ARE FOR US OR AGAINST US".
Well, that's a hard one.
