Obama refused to designate the Muslim group, Boko Haram (Arabic translation "books bad" or "Western education is haram -- unislamic"), which is responsible for this jihadist slaughter, a terrorist organization. They have been waging jihad in the cause of Islam, fighting to establish Islamic law in Nigeria. They have killed more than 1,000 people in numerous attacks across northern and central areas in Nigeria over the past 12 months.
Where are the plaintive cries from American Muslims, decrying such bloodlust in the cause of jihad? Where are the denunciations and condemnations of this jihad, ethnic cleansing and Islamic supremacism from the "moderate" Muslims? Why, they are in a froth denouncing my ads (like the one running on the backs of NYC buses, above).
"3 beheaded, 5 others killed in northeast Nigeria" AP January 24, 2012 (thanks to Tom)
MAIDUGURI, Nigeria (AP) — Officials say suspected fighters from a radical Islamist sect beheaded three people in a northeastern Nigerian city where gunfire has echoed through the street.
The violence happened Wednesday in Maiduguri and appeared to be the work of the sect known as Boko Haram.
Lt. Col. Sagir Musa said three people had been beheaded in an early morning attack in a Maiduguri neighborhood. Later, witnesses and officials said four dead bodies were found in another neighborhood. Residents say a Boko Haram fighter also shot and killed another person, drawing mortar fire from the military.
Boko Haram is waging a bloody sectarian fight against Nigeria's weak central government, which has been unable to stop the violence. Authorities blamed the sect for killing five others Tuesday in the northern city of Kano.
