Obama say, "Respect it!"
Remember: It's not the mass murder in the cause of Islam that's the problem. According to Islamic supremacists, the sharia-compliant media, and other assorted useful apologist idiots, it's that I am reporting on it that is the problem.
Get it? Me neither.
Ground Zero mosque radical Rauf blames the media for jihad reportage and suggests that a media blackout on all reporting of jihad, homicide bombings, and ethnic cleansing of non-Muslims in order to solve the problem.
NEWS ALERT: Boko Haram Claims Deadly Church Attack In Nigeria BosNewsLife June 4, 2012
BAUCHI, NIGERIA (BosNewsLife)-- The militant Islamist group Boko Haram has claimed responsibility for a suicide bombing that killed at least 15 people at an evangelical church in northern Nigeria.
In a statement e-mailed to journalists Monday, June 4, group spokesman Abul Qaqa said Boko Haram had “successfully launched” the attack. "We thank Allah for giving us victory. We successfully carried out a suicide bombing on a church at Yelwa in Bauchi state," he said.
The email address was the same the militants always use, but reporters cautioned there was no way to confirm its authenticity.
A suicide bomber drove a car packed with explosives into the church Sunday, causing the building to collapse and trapping worshipers inside, witnesses said.
The bombing reportedly occurred just as the congregation of Living Faith Church in the Yelwa Tudu area of Bauchi city was leaving a worship service. However, the casualties came primarily from the neighboring church, Harvest Field Church for Christ, which bore the brunt of the explosion, according to Christian rights group Christian Solidarity Worldwide (CSW).
Over 40 people were injured in addition to those killed.
Twelve cars and a number of buildings were also reported to have been destroyed by the blast.
Boko Haram has increasingly focused some of its energies on Christian worshipers, including a Christmas Day bomb just outside the capital that killed 37 people and wounded 57.
Three other bombers carrying explosives were reportedly intercepted on their way to the Church of Christ in Nigeria (COCIN) and Catholic churches in Yelwa Tudu, but were killed by angry crowds that gathered there, rights activists said.
Analysts say the group wants to create divisions between Muslims and Christians in this nation of 160 million people, though there were no reports of massive reprisals yet.
Additionally, reports emerged on Saturday, June 2, of a night attack by armed Fulani tribesmen on Sansun Village in Zangon Kataf Local Government Area (LGA), Southern Kaduna State, in which a man named Matthew Aetung and his son were hacked to death, his wife was critically injured, and his home was razed to the ground, CSW said.
Boko Haram's also warned media they would be attacked if they write "anything false" about Boko Haram, which means 'Western Education is a Sin'.
