Who and what is Boko Haram? This group is known as “the Congregation of the People of Tradition for Proselytism and Jihad and known by its Hausa name Boko Haram. This group is a militant organization based in the northeast of Nigeria, north of Cameroon and Niger. It was founded by Mohammed Yusuf in 2002. The organization seeks to establish a “PURE” Islamic state ruled by SHARIA. The group’s goal is to put a stop to what they call “Westernization,” which is a goal of all of the terrorists. They are known for attacking Christians and government targets. In the past, they have assassinated members of the Islamic governments who have condemned their operations. The violence they have caused is linked to 10,000 deaths between 2002 and 2013. The odd thing is you do not hear any loud noise from the Muslims to condemn any of these people. Is it that they agree with them? The U.S. does not ask these people to become “westernized. What do they do – they all swarm into the U.S. to participate in the welfare system because their country does not take care of their people and then they do not want to participate in our freedom of religion but want to bring and expect everyone to switch to Islam and their Sharia. We especially do not like the way they treat their women as second class citizens. Why don’t they stay in their own country and help it progress! By all means, why do they swarm here if they don’t like being “westernized?” It is the free money, honey!
A state of emergency has been declared in the areas of northeastern Nigerian states of Borno, Adamawa, Kaduna, Bauchi, Yobe, and Kano due to their violence. The group has not established a chain of command only factions and splits; therefore, the only name we have heard is “Abubakar Shekau”.
In November 13, 2013, John Kerry finally designated the group a terrorist organization which is something that Hillary Clinton refused to do during her rein and why not? The media are reporting that the President Goodluck Jonathan is not interested in negotiating with Boko Haram and a rescue, due to the remoteness of the area, is unlikely. How did they get that many people to one area if it is so remote?
The leader, Shekau has stated, “now that these girls have been converted from Christianity to Islam”, we will exchange them for militant prisoners. The young girls were shown wearing full veils and praying. Does this make them official Islam young girls because they dress in the Islamic full dress? In one part of the video, the girls were reciting, “Al-Fatiha,” the first chapter of the Quran and is one of the first prayers taught to those learning Islam. What would you do if you were in their shoes – the same thing – saying those prayers as fast as you could? The girls’ comments were not released due to their being held as hostages.
As we know these girls were kidnapped on April 14 when this group stormed a secondary school in the northeastern village of Chibok. These young girls were in the middle of taking exams. Some of them managed to escape; but, 200 are now missing and assumed to be in this group who are under the control of these kidnappers.
This is just one good example of how the group of eight leaders in this world just don’t get it and continue to walk around “terrorist Islam” and let it continue to fester by letting them participate in a sham democracy all the while preparing Jihad and where is the United Nations’ (UN) Human Rights group, hiding in the closet? Women in this part of the world are mistreated and abused and the UN remains silent. The examples of terrorism are so evident with all of the bombings throughout the world that even a blind man can envision it. What happens when they cut off our knees and we won’t have any knees to have that knee-jerk reaction? Silence is not bliss – we must confront this thing called, “Jihad and Sharia,” because it is not going to go away and the sooner the better.
A good example is the map of the terrorists in the U.S. which outlines the areas in which they are located. The strange thing about this map, it seems it does not make any difference. It seems to appear as just any map on the internet that people see and use to make a trip – that is the outcry. To see the full map, scroll to the right.
