Boko Haram slaughters 10 Christians, burns down their houses

The more I post these the more I am at a loss for words. But people must know the truth about how Christians are being persecuted in these countries by these Islamists, whether it be in the Sudan or in Nigeria:

YAHOO NEWS – Suspected Islamist fighters went on the rampage in northeast Nigeria overnight, killing 10 Christians with guns and machetes and burning down their houses, witnesses said on Sunday.

The attack happened in a village called Chibok, in a remote part of northeastern Borno state, at the heart of an insurgency led by Islamist sect Boko Haram.

“Suspected Boko Haram came at night and set people’s houses on fire before killing their victims,” said Nuhu Clark, a former councilor of the village who escaped the attack. He said he counted 10 bodies afterwards.

A police spokesman said they were aware of the incident but were still trying to confirm casualties.

Islamist fighters have killed hundreds of people since launching an uprising against the government in 2009, the usual targets being security forces, government officials or Christians, whom Boko Haram sees as infidels.

In a separate incident, militants burned down three churches on Saturday in Gamboru, also in Borno state, said trader Umar Abubakar, who witnessed the attack.

Security forces said on Sunday they had killed a senior Boko Haram commander Mohammed Ibrahim, one of several who had a bounty placed on his head last week – of 25 million naira ($158,900) in his case.

“He was killed in an operation in Gwange ward (Borno state) along with two of his unit commanders,” said a spokesman for joint military and police forces in Borno state, Lieutenant Colonel Sagir Musa.

“It is mine to avenge; I will repay. In due time their foot will slip; their day of disaster is near and their doom rushes upon them…” – Deuteronomy 32:35

“Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven…” – Matthew 5:10-12

    Who has time for this…look what the JEWS/Israel are doing….they are building houses on their own land…that’s serious stuff…we must all focus on Israel.

    • Conniption Fitz

      AND that land – E 1 – is part of the land already agreed upon – that belongs to Israel – in prior agreements.
      “The Clinton parameters and the last proposal on the table at Annapolis both included Israel building in E-1. And as part of the negotiations between ‘moderate’ ‘Palestinian’ President Mahmoud AbbasAbu Mazen and Ehud K. Olmert, Abu Mazen had accepted that Israel would annex E-1 as well.”
      From here:

      Problem is – Islam does not want to give Israel ANY land. Islam still thinks Spain is theirs. Islam wants the whole world.

        With our POTUS as their great world leader who brought the U. S. A. down.

  • johnos2112

    Obozo does not care RC. Remember the 4 American christians slaughtered for preaching the Bible about 4 years ago? Obama did and said NOTHING!

  • Sober_Thinking

    Thank you for the bible verses Scoop… I was going to say/post something similar.

    Pray for the families of those who were slain by evil and know that God has a special place for those who don’t believe and who participate in this evil. Their suffering will be great if they don’t seek the Lord’s forgiveness.

  • denbren52

    If it weren’t for you and the rest of the new media, we would never here about these atrocities. By their silence, the old media of the left is condoning the persecution of Christians worldwide.

    Thank you Scoop for you continued vigilance to this cause. And let’s continue to pray for those who are persecuted for their faith, even to death.

    • trouble06

      Why they’re just Christians why bother? Sarcasm on!

  • Dukehoopsfan

    The religion of peace really warms the heart. (sarcasm)

    • IwjwI

      A religion that uses the fear of head lopping to coheres people to join it ought to be considered armed and dangerous to all humanity.

  • Sandra123456

    Seems like the Muslims should stop these killings for awhile and let the Christians catch-up so we have equality. …Oh, sorry, I was practicing liberal thought. Sorry.

  • brendawatkins

    Revelations 20:4… And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. <—that's where we're headed.

  • Mary_Linda

    Hillary, the wife who tolerated, if not promoted female abuse by her x-President Bill, will chastise ISRAEL, but will she tolerate abuse done to CHRISTIANS? Of course. That’s exactly what she’s doing. Hear a peep from her about these ongoing slaughters in Africa? Hear anything about these atrocities from ANYBODY in this miserable regime? They only have time to criticize Israel. The Jews are always worth making a stink over, even as Arabs in Israel have the best conditions of ANY Muslims IN ANY OTHER COUNTRY, including ALL the Muslim countries. (Stupid Israelis!)

    What about the bleeding-hearted leftist liberals? Hear anything from them about these slaughters? They could care less! As sure as they could care less of “only” 4 Americans killed in Benghazi.

    • Conniption Fitz

      Remember Bosnia – Bill Clinton bombed Christian Serbs in order to let the muslims take over there.


      • white531

        Peach of a guy.

        • PVG

          HRC n’ Bill……..deserve each other.

          • white531

            Agree, but did we deserve them? 🙂

  • Persecution of Christians, Jews, MSM…silent!
    Supposed “lack of tolerance” on the part of Christians and Jews..MSM speaks of little else with regard to us.
    The courage and devotion of these Christians and their will to continue attending religous sevices is admirable. No, actually it is heroic! My heart breaks for them and my prayers for they and their families continue.

  • They will never know the truth if they read only left wing blogs or watch their news only on tv. Christians are being slaughtered all over Africa, especially North Africa, as well as the ME. Islam and terrorism are on the rise despite what Obama will tell you.

  • 12grace

    Why doesn’t the so-called humanitarian UN under the “Responsibility to Protect” policy go in and protect the innocent Christians being slaughtered?

    • Because they’re too busy working on getting muslims amnesty in the US.

    • tinlizzieowner

      Take a look at the people the UN has praised over the years (like Gaddafi for instance), your question will answer it’s self.

  • colliemum

    Notice how the corrupt MSM write: ‘suspected’ islamist fighters, ‘suspected’ Boko Haram?
    As if there were any doubts as to who these disgusting criminals are.

    These martyred Christians are with Our Lord – and they will be given their crowns way before we can dare approach Him to beg Him to forgive our trespasses.

    Their witness makes me pray for the strength so that I can stand up to His enemies here in our society, knowing full well that I shall not be murdered by islamists.
    Well, not quite yet.

  • tinlizzieowner

    Nothing to see here, they were just Christians. If a Christian had burned down a Mosque, that would make headlines.

    • Nukeman60

      If a Christian would have burned down a Mosque, with no loss of life, there would have been dozens, if not hundreds, killed in the aftermath. Therein lies the problem.

      We cherish life more than they do.

      • tinlizzieowner

        The Islamists no more value life than the Imperialist Japanese did during WW2. We finally managed to attract their attention by the only viable means left open to us.
        😉 😉
        ‘Talking’ didn’t work then and it isn’t going to work with the Islamists either.

  • Conniption Fitz

    HOW do the UN, Obama, Hillary ignore this?

    HOW do they ignore the charter of Hamas (full of despicable hatred, racism and threats), the new Constitution of Egypt (which does not ban slavery or give equal rights to women) and the same in the Koran?

    Due to the dishonesty, deception, delusion of their minds.

  • Larchmonter

    These acts of violence are misunderstood. These are merely expressions of the Peace of Islam, and the Harmony on Earth when all the Caliphate is in place.

  • “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit!” Stephen

    According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death.
    For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.
    Philippians 1:20, 21

    And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with me in paradise.
    Luke 23:43

    “Eighty and six years have I served Christ, nor has He ever done me any harm. How, then, could I blaspheme my King who saved Me?….I bless Thee for deigning me worthy of this day and this hour that I may be among Thy martyrs and drink the cup of my Lord Jesus Christ.” Polycarp

    “You can kill us, but you can’t hurt us.” Justin Martyr

    As much as my heart breaks for these and millions of others who are brutalized ONLY because they follow Christ, I also can’t help but rejoice for them now, for they are seeing our Lord Jesus now face to face, and that’s what I long for.

    A police spokesman said they were aware of the incident but were still trying to confirm casualties.‘ – Yahoo news

    Perhaps, instead of just trying to confirm casualties, if you actually did something about them, there would be a lessening of this travesty. I realize the article says they got one top man, but a non-stop, 24/7, full-out war must be commenced against these beasts or it will never stop.

    They must have taken away from them what they dearly cherish and that is their lives. I realize vengence is the Lord’s and His will be done, but I would just like to see a little retribution in my time, if you please.

  • sjmom

    RS, you and I may be at a loss for words but as you have shown God’s Word never is. Thank you for the Scripture verses.

  • 401_Unauthorised

    I keep saying this but I’m sorry: This really isn’t funny anymore.

    And the most irksome thing concerning this whole issue is, When the Christians so much as start sharpening their own axes, locking and loading their own guns and stocking up on their own c4 explosives, thats when CNN and MSNBC will come riding into town. You can just bet on that happening. And then we’ll hear no end of “fundamentalist” and “extremist” Christians thristing for Muslim blood.

  • white531

    This a major World War, but because it does not have a definable front, each battle is described as an, “incident,” by the media. The fact that innocent people are dying in these, “incidents,” doesn’t seem to matter. 9/11 was to them, “an incident.”

    Make no mistake, these militant Muslims with worms for brains, are on a march. They have a growing population in every country in the world of any significance, including the United States. I believe they have gained such numbers, that they have no intention from here on, of letting up on these worldwide attacks, until they have taken over every country on the planet. China will be last.

    Some are militant, with a blood lust, while others are just occupiers who support the movement and increase their numbers, by moving into areas like the United States and Europe, and then setting up strongholds to further their agenda.

    Here is a disturbing article from Battlefield America. And yes, I know I’m preaching to the choir.

  • Blessed are those who have adequate weapons and keep them loaded.

  • Shery Hancock

    The world will not step up and denounce Islam. They can take all the lives they want. Whether Christian or Jewish, they will not even get a slap on the hand. This president has said not a single word in response to Islamist slaughter of innocents. Nor will he. He is their enabler, and a willing enabler, at that. He claims to be a Christian, himself, but his relating of how one becomes one is that of a false believer, not a true one. He covers for Islamic extremists to the point of denying things they do as acts of terrorism or war, let alone outright murder or persecution. We must be the prayer warriors for the targeted peoples, and for our own country, as we are following swiftly down the road to shariah law. On purpose, I might add.

  • Islamist pogroms are emerging all over the world, as the world remains silent.. Sound familiar..

    What else is new with these blood thirsty savages, as this is their MO, intimidation, threats, violence, irrational maniacal behavior.. To say they’re Evil is almost an understatement.

    This radical religious militant arab islamic muslim terrorist crusade against Jews and Christians, and the whole of Western Civilization, overtly and or covertly, is spreading like a wild fire, as it did in the 1930’s. And if we do not defend our Freedom and Homes, defeat them at home and abroad, in the US, Europe, the Middle East and Israel, as well as Africa, Asia, etc, then we will be all be enslaved, tortured, and murdered at the hands of these medieval butchering savages.

  • Allen Craig

    For REAL Christians, you know, the ones that READ, and APPLY God’s Holy Word to themselves.

    (background, Peter and John had just been BEATEN for preaching Christ)

    Acts 5:41 And they departed from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for his name.

    1Corinthians 4:12 …being persecuted, we suffer it

    Christians, REAL Christians, unlike ‘founding father’s’ don’t kill men when persecuted, don’t cry about their pretended rights, don’t seek legal redress, THEY SUFFER IT.

    Hint, Peter and John KNEW who found them worthy to suffer!
