Yesterday we shared the story with you of honor killings in Pakistan. I’m quite sure the progressive socialist left and their Islamo-fascist comrades were just outraged.
We have to start addressing the truth, as we’re watching so-called “leaders” in the Western world subject our nations to a civilizational scourge that’s the antithesis of our fundamental beliefs in individual freedom, sovereignty and liberty. And it appears there is yet another example that should cause us concern — and make us question the “coexist” bumper sticker crowd.
As reported by the Daily Caller:
A Christian woman in Nigeria was stabbed to death Thursday for allegedly insulting the Islamic prophet Muhammad, prompting an outcry from Christians in the country.
Bridget Abihime, a trader and wife to a Christian pastor, was killed for allegedly saying Muhammad was not important. Nigerian police have taken two suspects into custody, but the Christian Association of Nigeria says the killing is part of a larger problem that the government has not properly addressed.
I’m sorry to have to share this with you, but this gruesome picture must be seen in order to fully grasp the despicable truth about Islamic jihadism:
“This barbarism must stop now,” said Rev. John Hayab, the association’s spokesman. He believes that police tried to cover up the crime, and demanded the prosecution of all those involved. The association warned authorities Saturday that such failures are leading to a “looming religious crisis.”
Nigeria’s Inspector General of Police Solomon Arase said the entire Nigerian security network is working to prevent a religious backlash and called for help from Nigerian leaders in “dousing the tensions.”
Nigerian President Mohammadu Buhari said the killing was “utterly condemnable.” His statement following the murder called for Nigerians to respect each other’s faiths in order to “live together in peace.”
Nigeria’s 170 million people are evenly divided between Muslims in the north, and Christians in the south. A 15-year-long conflict between the two groups over territorial grazing rights for farmers’ herds of animals has killed 60,000 people. The rise of Boko Haram, an Islamic State-linked terrorist group, has drastically increased violence against Christians in recent years.
The group is responsible for the deaths of at least 20,000 people over the last seven years. Rev. Samuel Dali of the Church of the Brethren claimed more than 8,000 of the church’s members have been killed by the terrorist group, with 70 percent of churches destroyed.
Yes, I agree, the barbarism must stop and it appears the only way to make that happen against such a culture and ideology of violence is by strength. The Nigerian President’s call to “live together in peace” is right along the same mantra as “coexist” bumper stickers. And it’s in keeping with the finer traditions of #freeourgirls.
The bottom line that we must come to understand is that social media campaigns and calls for Kumbaya are seen as indicators of weakness. Who will EVER forget the optic of U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry standing next to James Taylor singing “You’ve got a Friend” after the Islamic terrorist attack in Paris? Yep, that’s what I call sending a message to the Islamic jihadists, got ’em shaking in their sandals, right boys?
However, what all this truly shows is that Christian lives do not matter. The world goes nuts and loses its mind and just opens up its borders because of the sad plight of refugees from Muslim countries. And when these same refugees attack women in Cologne, Germany, the response is to admonish the women.
Doggone, does anyone else see the inane hypocrisy of the progressive socialist left being all upset about Christians not wanting to bake a cake for a same sex marriage — but where is the international outrage over the brutal and savage killing of this innocent woman? Or ,for that matter, the clear and present existence of genocide by Islamic jihadist groups against the ancient Christian community in the Middle East and elsewhere. After all, it took the Obama administration how long to just admit that ISIS was committing genocide? We heard all the “nuanced” excuses from the White House talking head Josh “Not So” Earnest.
Oops, my bad, perhaps I should, as President Barack Obama stated at the National Prayer Breakfast, get off my high horse since we Christians have been guilty of “atrocities.” You remember those fellas called the Crusaders who were running around yelling “God wills it.” Hmm, interestingly enough, Pope Urban II called for the first “Crusade” in 1095 based on the persecution and attacks against Christian pilgrims in the Holy Land by Islamic jihadists — some things just never change.
So, I’m happy to debate with any of y’all about history, especially the history of Islamic conquest post Muhammad’s Al Hijra circa 622 AD. But what is abjectly insane is that here we are in the 21st century, 2016, almost 1400 years later, and a Christian woman is the victim of savage barbarism based upon some insidious 7th century mindset. Now, let me clue y’all into something, that mindset does not respond to being serenaded by James Taylor. It does not respond to social media love tests and celebrity efforts. This mindset does not respond to calls for peaceful coexistence. Those are signs of weakness and this is not about making anyone more “democratic.” Nope, this is about understanding exactly as Thomas Jefferson did, send the Navy and the Marines in order to crush it. The Barbary Wars took a while, but you know what, we won.
As we are now into the 2016 presidential election cycle, ask yourself, which candidate would be outraged to read the sad story of Bridget Abihime…and would take action to support the Nigerian Army to eradicate this pestilence? Imagine the horror of a Pastor who has had 8,000 church members killed and 70% of his churches destroyed? Now, ask yourself, if this were the shoe on the other foot…well, you know the condemnation that would occur.
“When tolerance becomes a one way street, it leads to cultural suicide”…and it ushers in religious genocide.
