On this election day we are reminded of the absolute and unthinkable horror that these savage Muslims in Boko Haram are capable of, as they just burned scores of children and others alive on Saturday night:
CBN NEWS – Islamic terrorists have struck again. This past weekend, Boko Haram burned children alive in Nigeria, and ISIS bombed school children in Syria.
Homes were seen smoldering and in piles of ashes in the village of Dalori, Nigeria following a Boko Haram rampage Saturday night.
For four hours, heavily armed gunmen and at least three suicide bombers attacked. They set much of the village afire. Children let out bloodcurdling screams as they burned alive in their huts.
Two nearby refugee camps were also attacked. Nigerian army troops arrived, but they were outmanned and outgunned by the terrorists.
Charred corpses and bullet-ridden bodies were counted Sunday. At least 86 people were killed and another 62 people injured in the attack. Three females were among the suicide bombers.
And if it’s not Boko Haram, it’s the savage Muslims in ISIS who also murdered a lot of children this weekend:
Nearly 3,000 miles away, Islamic State terrorists struck in the heart of Syria, this time in a Shiite neighborhood south of Damascus.
They detonated two bombs on Sunday in an area protected by Hezbollah, the Lebanese-based Iranian ploy. The first was a suicide car bomb.
Witness Ahmad Aswad said, “We were on the street, and the car suddenly exploded. A lot of children were killed because the school was out at that time. I was just carrying children out of the building and sent them to the hospital.”
As people gathered to help dead and injured children, another blast occurred in the midst of the crowd, this time from an ISIS terrorist wearing a suicide vest.
At least 45 people were killed and 110 wounded.
I just can’t imagine. I just can’t. I live in a peaceful place and simply have no idea what it’s like to be so attached to horrors like this. And nor would I want to know.
But there is One who does know, and after stories like this I can only hope that He would hasten His return to put an end to this plague of sin and redeem those He calls his Children:
“And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring; men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken.
Then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.”
