Connecting the dots: Boko Haram, Islam, Christianity, Libya, Slavery, Rape, "Kinetic Action"
Richard Fernandez connects the dots and fleshes out the story that the American media would rather not tell. It doesn't fit the narrative.
One of the little known facts about the kidnapping of schoolgirls by the Boko Haram in Nigeria is that most of the victims are Christians. “
It's an inconvenient fact that this Islmaist group has already sold some of the girls into sex slavery or as ‘brides’ for just £8, as approved in the Koran.
But then news coverage of the schoolgirl’s abduction has for the most part portrayed the Boko Haram without context. To add any sort of context to the accounts of abductions, instructions from Allah, people sold in markets is to raise disturbing questions about things we are taught do not exist. Religious war? Slavery — in Africa? And where on earth do the Boko Haram get their guns and training?
WE have been taught by the American media that these are just lies spread by those radical terrorists in the Tea Party. We have Harry Reid's word on it: "all lies."
Such context as we get are instructions not to seek context lest they inflame us. The Toronto Star has an article arguing that “Boko Haram does not represent Islam,” as if the crime were against Islam with a world-religion itself as victim. “The group responsible for the kidnapping rampage in Nigeria has hijacked a whole faith, steering the public discourse on Islam.” But that raises even more questions. Such as: what group could possibly hijack a religion of hundreds of millions? Al-Qaeda, you say? But isn’t al-Qaeda’s dead?
It appears that the weapons that this faction of Islam uses comes from Libya, the country we "liberated" via "Kinetic Action." Good job, Barry.
