Remember the almost immediate condemnation of Israel by much of the haughty liberal establishment for its retaliatory strikes against Hamas this past November? Our moral watchdogs on the left couldn’t help but get their collective panties in a wad because the Jewish state had the unbelievable audacity to respond with force to the terrorist organization’s unprovoked firing of hundreds of rockets into Israeli cities and neighborhoods.
How dare Israel defend itself – much less destroy the cache of rockets being rained down on its civilian population on a daily basis.
Which brings us to Boko Haram, an organization I’d venture to guess most Americans have never even heard of – much less, anything about the unspeakable atrocities it commits and against whom it commits them. I wonder why that is?
You don’t suppose it has anything to do with the liberal media, by chance, do you?
“People Committed to the Propagation of the Prophet’s Teachings and Jihad” is a Nigerian terrorist organization (yes, O, there are still Islamic terrorist organizations in the world that commit unspeakable atrocities) which is better known by its Hausa name: “Boko Haram” – or “Western education is sinful.”
Can you see where this is headed?
While Boko Haram’s stated objective is the overthrow of the Nigerian government – which it plans to replace with a regime based on Islamic law, its favorite activity in the meantime is slaughtering Christians – with the preferred techniques being bombing, burning or spraying gunfire into churches during worship services.
Here’s a partial list of Boko Haram’s attacks against Christians – just in 2012:
January 5-6: Churches and Christians businesses attacked; 37+ dead
January 20: Churches and Christian businesses attacked; 185 dead
April 8: Church bombed on Easter Sunday; 38 dead
June 17: Three churches bombed; 19 dead
July 7: Christian villages attacked; 100+ dead
August 7: Church attacked, pastor killed; 19 dead
December 25: Christmas shootings at two churches; 12 dead
For those who you keeping score at home, Boko Haram has killed more than 1,000 Christians since 2009, according to Human Rights Watch.
The last time I heard O speak out against this genocide – oh, wait – that hasn’t happened. Never mind.
Anyway, I also don’t recall any liberal media lapdogs or Hollywood moonbats condemning this Muslim terrorist group or any of its attacks, do you? Hell – Tingles Matthews wouldn’t even come out of the closet last year over the slaughter of more than 400 Christians at the hands of Islamic terrorists. Too bad the killers weren’t Republicans.
Incidentally, Boko Haram has already kicked off 2013 with a bang, killing at least 19 in an attack on a village in northern Nigeria. Sadly, none of those killed were Palestinian “refugees.” If they had been – perhaps America’s liberals would be enraged.
