Nigeria: Muslims Shouting “Allah Akbar” Slaughter 500 Christians

Back in late February Muslims in Nigeria burned down eight Churches. Obviously that was not good enough for the followers of the religion of war, as they have now slaughtered 500 more Christians. If Muslim immigration is not stopped in non-Islamic countries, it is just a matter of time until the Islamic attacks on non-Muslims ratchets up to this level. You can count on it.

Appeals for calm after Nigerian sectarian slaughter

JOS, Nigeria (AFP) – UN chief Ban Ki-moon and Washington led calls for restraint on Monday after the slaughter of more than 500 Christians in Nigeria, as survivors told how the killers chopped down their victims.

Funerals took place for victims of the three-hour orgy of violence on Sunday in three Christian villages close to the northern city of Jos, blamed on members of the mainly Muslim Fulani ethnic group.

While troops were deployed to the villages to prevent new attacks, security forces detained 95 suspects but faced bitter criticism over how the killers were able to go on the rampage at a time when a curfew was meant to be in force.

Media reported that Muslim residents of the villages in Plateau state had been warned by phone text message, two days prior to the attack, so they could make good their escape before the exit points were sealed off.

Survivors said the attackers were able to separate the Fulanis from members of the rival Berom group by chanting ‘nagge’, the Fulani word for cattle. Those who failed to respond in the same language were hacked to death.

One local paper said the gangs shouted Allah Akhbar (God is Great) before breaking into homes and setting them alight in the early hours of Sunday. Churches were among the buildings that were burned down.

The Vatican led a wave of outrage with spokesman Federico Lombardi expressing the Roman Catholic Church’s “sadness” at the “horrible acts of violence”.

The UN chief told reporters he was “deeply concerned”.

“I appeal to all concerned to exercise maximum restraint,” he said.

“Nigeria’s political and religious leaders should work together to address the underlying causes and to achieve a permanent solution to the crisis in Jos.”

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton urged “all parties to exercise restraint”, but also called on the Nigerian government to “make sure the perpetrators are brought to justice.”

“The Nigerian government should ensure that the perpetrators of acts of violence are brought to justice under the rule of law and that human rights are respected as order is restored,” the chief US diplomat said.

The death toll was initially put at a little over 100 but then shot up. The information ministry said pregnant women were among those killed and around 200 people were being treated in hospital.

“We have over 500 killed in three villages and the survivors are busy burying their dead,” said state information commissioner Gregory Yenlong.

“People were attacked with axes, daggers and cutlasses — many of them children, the aged and pregnant women.”

Much of the violence was centred around the village of Dogo Nahawa, where gangs set fire to straw-thatched mud huts as they went on their rampage.

    Chris, do you know where the link is for the second attack where they slaughtered 200 more? It did not make most news sights. The people were netted then slaughtered the next night.

    I haven't seen a report mentioning netting, but I did see one the other day that mentioned animal traps. Apparently, villagers ran into them in the dark and wound up easy prey. It wasn't clear if the traps were already there or set up by the arselifters deliberately.

    This report mentions a few villages as being attacked –

    Well it's nice to see the Vatican finally speak out. The fight with Islam will never, and I do mean never end unless the weak-kneeded Catholics and other Christian groups figure out that this is the end of Christendom if they don't get involved and fight this evil. Nothing is going to change unless the masses of Christians are taught the tenets of Isalm and all this interfaith, religious and moral equivalency thinking is flushed down the toliet of multiculturalism. Wake up..Mike Elmore

      I’m sorry but I do not agree with your statement. I am not a Muslim but I do not think Islam the religion is to blame. It is the miss interpretation of the religion tht is causing all the chaos! The persons who miss interpret islam are to blame but the religion itself is not to blame. And it

        So when the koran tells arselifters to kill unbelievers, who is to blame?

      • March 27, 2010 at 5:55 pm

        My views are supported by the Koran interpreted by Yusuf Ali, the Muslim and Bukhari ahadith, and Al Azhar. Please back up your statement with some facts.

    Islamic violence is on the rise again since the time of mohammad. But, such evil of islam is nothing new. I am a survivor of islamic violence during my childhood. It was very scary the way they went berserk for no apparent reason, especially on a beautiful bright sunning day. I was born and raised in Singapore then. The islamic bloodsheds on innocent civilians happened twice during the 1960s. The first time it happened, me and my sibblings were returning home with our mom and out of the clear blue sky, people behind us were running frantically for their life from the violently out of control muslim Malays wielding their weapons. I don't understand why the West would allow muslims to immigrate to their countries in great numbers given their propensity for violence. I hope the people speak out and chane the way the government is doing things to put their countries and future generations in great peril before it's too late!

    Thank God that you and the rest of your family did not become victims of these crazy people. I totally agree with you that the West is indeed allowing the influx of these infidel's to enter so easily and they're growing in huge numbers. Look at what has happened in Britain.

    • March 16, 2010 at 7:02 am

      All we had to do is look to the UK, to see what was coming our way in regards to Islam. Now we are slowly heading down the same road as the UK.

      I rarely see stuff like this on the MSM, they do not want to "offend" Muslims.

      Stay safe.

      When it comes to arselifter atrocities, the media is always strangely quiet. The best source of information and daily reports is TROP http://thereligionofpeace.com/ There are lots of discussion sites around like this one but I'm not aware of one that focuses on African issues. If you know of any, let us know.

    to all true Muslims there is no coercion in faith and Mohammed himself fought only to protect his honour and being and he never ever will justify killing in faith GOD IS ONE

      You are mistaken, he fought to spread Islam.

      Bukhari Volume 1, Book 2, Number 25:
      Narrated Ibn ‘Umar:
      Allah’s Apostle said: “I have been ordered (by Allah) to fight against the people until they testify that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and that Muhammad is Allah’s Apostle, and offer the prayers perfectly and give the obligatory charity, so if they perform that, then they save their lives and property from me except for Islamic laws and then their reckoning (accounts) will be done by Allah.”
