Islamists Are Slaughtering Christians Left and Right in Nigeria
Abraham Cooper and Johnnie Moore of the New York Post provided lurid details about the Christian slaughter taking place in Nigeria.
In recent years, Islamist terrorists of Boko Haram have gained notoriety for the slaughter of Christians in the African country.
A 9-year-old girl told them about her experience witnessing terrorists murder her parents and siblings with machetes.
They also recounted the story of the kidnapping of two female parishioners of a church that had been destroyed twice.
The church’s pastor had to rescue them by paying off the terrorists with a ransom.
According to the authors, “The ransom demanded was a fortune for any individual in his modest town. So he sold virtually all his possessions, as did other church members, to pay the thousand dollars required to save their lives.”
Another village’s experience didn’t turn out well:
Other stories didn’t end so happily. We met men from a village razed entirely by the Islamists. The livelihoods were sabotaged, their families’ massacred. The attackers waited till the middle of the night before assailing men, women and childnre with guns and machetes. Kidnapping wasn’t to their taste. They started fires, then unleashed horrific ethnic cleansing.
One victim — Leah Shurabi — has stood out among the rest. This Christian teenager was 14 years old when she refused to convert to Islam despite the constant threats coming from her terrorist captors. The two authors were in Nigeria on the second anniversary of her abduction.
Nigeria’s Muslim president, Muhammadu Buhari, shared her Christian testimony in a statement on the front page of a leading newspaper in Nigeria.
“Leah remains in the hands of the terrorists,” declared Buhari. “They say [it’s] because she refuses to renounce her Christian faith. We say that no person has the right to force another to change their faith against their will, and that all life is sacred.”
In Nigeria, terrorists are waging a de facto holy war, as Christians get slaughtered left and right.
The 21st century will not end up being kind for Christians as the politically correct West becomes more secularized and Islamism grows faster in the Third World.
