Interfaith dialogue in Nigeria: Muslims torch three churches, murder three nuns

2008_Nigeria_Jos_ChurchThe real name of Boko Haram is Jama’atu Ahlus Sunnati Lidda’awati wal Jihad — that is, the Party of the People of the Sunnah for Dawah and Jihad. Sunnah is acceptable Islamic practice. Dawah is Islamic proselytizing. This is how they go about practicing Islam in acceptable fashion, and proselytizing: by torching churches and murdering nuns. Boko Haram’s leader recently explained: “The reason why I will kill you is you are infidels…we must establish Islam in this country.” But remember: this blood and death is not the problem. Those who report on it — they’re the problem.

“Nigeria: Nuns may be among victims of suspected Boko Haram attack,” from Christian Today, February 28 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):
Dozens of people have been killed in another suspected rampage by Islamist militant group Boko Haram in northern Nigeria.
The group is believed to be behind a string of attacks in the Madagali and Michika Local Government Areas, in Adamawa State, on Wednesday.
Gunmen armed with rocket propelled grenades and explosives descended on Kirchiga Village before turning their weapons on Shuwari, Shuwa and Michika Town.
At least 28 people were killed and an unknown number injured.
The Nigerian station Channels TV reported that three Catholic churches were set ablaze in Michika Town and that three Catholic nuns may be among the victims.
