Islamic terrorists just murdered as many as 2,000 people in Nigeria

This is very sad – magnitudes worse than what recently happened in France:

Amnesty: Nigeria massacre deadliest in history of Boko Haram

January 9, 2014

YOLA, Nigeria — Hundreds of bodies — too many to count — remain strewn in the bush in Nigeria from an Islamic extremist attack that Amnesty International suggested Friday is the “deadliest massacre” in the history of Boko Haram.

Mike Omeri, the government spokesman on the insurgency, said fighting continued Friday for Baga, a town on the border with Chad where insurgents seized a key military base on Jan. 3 and attacked again on Wednesday.

“Security forces have responded rapidly, and have deployed significant military assets and conducted airstrikes against militant targets,” Omeri said in a statement.

District head Baba Abba Hassan said most victims are children, women and elderly people who could not run fast enough when insurgents drove into Baga, firing rocket-propelled grenades and assault rifles on town residents.

“The human carnage perpetrated by Boko Haram terrorists in Baga was enormous,” Muhammad Abba Gava, a spokesman for poorly armed civilians in a defense group that fights Boko Haram, told The Associated Press.

He said the civilian fighters gave up on trying to count all the bodies. “No one could attend to the corpses and even the seriously injured ones who may have died by now,” Gava said.

An Amnesty International statement said there are reports the town was razed and as many as 2,000 people killed.

If true, “this marks a disturbing and bloody escalation of Boko Haram’s ongoing onslaught,” said Daniel Eyre, Nigeria researcher for Amnesty International.

The previous bloodiest day in the uprising involved soldiers gunning down unarmed detainees freed in a March 14, 2014, attack on Giwa military barracks in Maiduguri city. Amnesty said then that satellite imagery indicated more than 600 people were killed that day.

The 5-year insurgency killed more than 10,000 people last year alone, according to the Washington-based Council on Foreign Relations. More than a million people are displaced inside Nigeria and hundreds of thousands have fled across its borders into Chad, Cameroon and Nigeria.

Emergency workers said this week they are having a hard time coping with scores of children separated from their parents in the chaos of Boko Haram’s increasingly frequent and deadly attacks.

Just seven children have been reunited with parents in Yola, capital of Adamawa state, where about 140 others have no idea if their families are alive or dead, said Sa’ad Bello, the coordinator of five refugee camps in Yola.

He said he was optimistic that more reunions will come as residents return to towns that the military has retaken from extremists in recent weeks.

Suleiman Dauda, 12, said he ran into the bushes with neighbors when extremists attacked his village, Askira Uba, near Yola last year.

“I saw them kill my father, they slaughtered him like a ram. And up until now I don’t know where my mother is,” he told The Associated Press at Daware refugee camp in Yola.

    I know the issue here is meant to be the value of a Life of a French citizen vs the value of a life of a Nigerian.

    However, for me, I want to take this opportunity to once again reinforce my belief the cult “islam” is a clear and present danger to the world of civilized people. All Western Nations should be focused on destroying anything moooooslum. These animal who practice the mooooslum cult in any Western Nation should be rounded up and moved to the Middle East, where their cult dominates. I don’t care what their citizenship might be, if they are mooooslums, they must be removed from Western Society.

    You better figure out who our enemy is, and mount a vigorous defense against them, with the goal of destroying them completely. If you think there are two types of moooooslums (Moderate and Radical) you are a damn fool. They all read from the same book, hold the same beliefs, listen to the same imams telling them to hate, and terrorize Christians, Jews, Buddhists, and even each other. Islam is our enemy. We should stop letting them be the only ones attacking. We MUST stop them in anyway possible. For me, that means to kill as many of them…..men, women and children….as possible until they lose the will to attack us.

    They hate us with a passion. We better start hating them with an even greater passion and superior weapons.

      It seems to me that a lot of Muslims don’t want to live in Muslim countries, but as soon as they move to a non-Muslim country, they try to turn it into a Muslim country. Kind of like how liberals in the U.S. flee the high high taxes in blue states by moving to red states, but then they vote for candidates who support higher taxes in those red states.

    Africa is the sane worlds zoo, put up a fence, let no one in and no one out; just look what they are doing here!

    We the People feed, cloth and house them for free, and they still want to kill us. Why do you or anyone question why God left them there alone?

    And yet Obastard will refuse to call (his own people) terrorists.

    • danfromsquirrelhill replied:

      After Nidal Malik Hasan shouted “Allahu Akbar!” and murdered 13 people on U.S. soil, instead of referring to it as “Islamic terrorism,” Obama said that it was “workplace violence.”

        Yet if a white guy did it and was a pro 2nd Amendment individual who also prepped. He WOULD have been labeled a “terrorist”.
