200 Christians Murdered During Four Day Muslim Killing Spree in Nigeria

Elder Patriot – The rise of radical Islam in Nigeria is resulting in the persecution of Christians inside the northern region. While Christianity remains dominant in the southern half of Nigeria, Islam has become dominant in the north.

Radical groups, such as Boko Haram and Muslim Fulani herdsmen, are aggressively persecuting believers in the northern and Middle Belt regions.

On Friday, Open Doors USA chronicled the radical Islamists’ murderous rampage that began on Thursday and continued into Monday:

Most of the victims were in their homes sleeping when the attacks began … when Muslim Fulani militant herdsmen began their killing spree in Nigeria that lasted four days, Thursday through Sunday evening and into Monday.

In only days, a dozen villages in Nigeria’s Plateau state were wiped out. The affected communities surround the city of Jos—known as the epicenter of Christianity in northern Nigeria’s Middle Belt.

As many as 200 Christians had been killed, however, some residents fear the death toll may be even higher, as more bodies are yet to be recovered, while others were burned beyond recognition. On Sunday, 75 of the victims were buried in a mass grave.

  • 120 people who were attending the funerals of an elderly member were hacked to death as they returned home.
  • In another attack, in Gana Ropp village, a pastor, Rev. Musa Choji, was killed, as were his wife and son.
  • In Gidin Akwati, the whole community was burned down. Local sources say that some of those displaced are still hiding in the bush, as they haven’t yet been able to find their way to a safe haven.
  • A pastor with the Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA) denomination, who wanted to remain anonymous for security reasons, said that following an attack on Saturday, his entire village was reduced to ashes, and more than 100 people lost their lives.

It is not our intention to argue whether or not Islam is a religion of peace.  But, it is inarguable that a certain strain of Islam, or a at least a certain percentage of its followers, are hellbent on ethnic cleansing.  

This should serve as a warning to any of you going weak in the knees over President Trump’s travel ban that the Supreme Court upheld.  

Britain failed to heed this fundamental truism and now Londonistan is becoming a war zone.  The story of loyalist Tommy Robinson’s incarceration for simply reporting the news is a shocking example of how quickly radical Islamists can overrun a democracy.

Here in the USA we simply have to know the intentions of people applying for asylum.  How else will the president to be able to protect the country and its citizens as the Constitution requires?
