“Only a fool neglects the keenness of his blade, in the self-deceptive hope  that his enemy’s blade has also dulled.” Wiggington

Martyrdom Anyone?

“Boko Haram,” a notorious assemblage of Islamic gangsters in central

Africa just proudly released a video depicting them slaughtering children and adults, by the hundreds, probably in Nigeria.  Most victims were shown lying face-down and were subsequently shot in the back of the head.

Victims were accused of being “non-believers,” although many were doubtless actually professing Moslems themselves.  Apparently, they weren’t quite “Islamic” enough!

The leader of the group says: “We have made sure the floor of this hall is turned red with blood, and this is how it is going to be in all future attacks and arrests of infidels… killing, slaughtering, destructions and bombing will be our religious duty anywhere we invade.”

Unlike Western politicians, he gets right to the point and leaves no chance  for misinterpretation. I’ll give him that!

He, at least, knows what he is doing and why, more than I can say for any of our politicians!

In the West, we’ll continue to see similar murderous rampages by Islamics, albeit on a smaller scale (at least for now), but, in their cowardly effort to continue avoid confronting the truth, predictably Administration officials will cynically label such incidents with intelligence-insulting terms such as, “workplace violence,” “lone-wolf incidents,” and “random attacks.” Then, they’ll rapidly change the subject to “global warming” and “income inequality,” because vainly wishing real problems would just go away is they only “strategy” they know.

The rest of us are, as always, on our own.  During this Christian Holiday Season, we must be exceptionally alert, prudent, and prepared!

For one, I pray at the beginning of each day, but only after checking weapons and ammunition!

In the 7 years since this was first published, Boko has conducted raids, murders, and atrocities almost weekly. Nothing has been done. Not by Nigeria, the UN or anyone else. The leadership has gone through several changes the most recent being that of Abubakar Shekau, who was claimed to have “blown himself up”. But he has been reported dead several other times. The main fact here, 7 years and nothing has changed. Take that last line, and the one before it, and remember them. Nobody is safe.
