Family Security MattersExclusive: No Big Deal, Just Some People in Africa, Right?Gadi Adelman
Itâ€™s a shame that people in this country donâ€™t believe those of us who warn about creeping Sharia and Islam. To a certain extent, itâ€™s understandable, especially when the media just ignore not only global massacres but the obvious happening right here in our own back yard. There is enough blame to go around. I mean, we have such important things to concern ourselves with here; health care reform, unemployment, the price of gas and letâ€™s not forget the Toyota recalls that seem to be never-ending.
Would it make the headlines if over a thousand Christians had been killed in, say, a South Carolina town for no other reason than they are simply Christian? Well, per capita, that is exactly what is happening in Nigeria. Funny how, when I do see a story on it, it is usually buried somewhere inside the paper or itâ€™s just a small 30-second story on the television news.
The stories are horrifying, the pictures are stomach wrenching â€“ men, women and babies, yes, babies being hacked into pieces by machetes.
The BBC reported on it back in March, â€œHundreds of people, including many women and children, were killed in ethnic violence near the city of Jos in Nigeria at the weekend, officials say. They said villages had been attacked by men with machetes who came from nearby hills. Many of the dead in the villages of Zot and Dogo-Nahawa are reported to be women and children.â€
The report continued, â€œMark Lipdo, from the Christian charity Stefanos Foundation, said Zot village had been almost wiped out.â€
He said: "We saw mainly those who are helpless, like small children and then the older men, who cannot run, these were the ones that were slaughtered."
A resident of Dogo-Nahawa said that the attackers had fired guns as they entered the village before dawn on Sunday in defiance of a curfew.
â€œThe shooting was just meant to bring people from their houses and then when people came out they started cutting them with machetes," Peter Jang told Reuters news agency.
Some witnesses said villagers were caught in fishing nets and animal traps as they tried to escape and were then hacked to death. Mud huts were also set on fire.â€
The reason I bring this up now, again in April, is because mass graves of people are still being found and I still hear little or nothing about this. When do we as Americans, as people, as human beings start to look around us and say ENOUGH! More: http://www.familysecuritymatters.org/publications/id.6011/pub_detail.asp
