Islamic militants attacked a boarding school before dawn Saturday, dousing a dormitory in fuel and lighting it ablaze as students slept, survivors said. At least 30 people were killed in the deadliest attack yet on schools in Nigeria's embattled northeast.
Authorities blamed the violence on Boko Haram, a radical group whose name means "Western education is sacrilege." The militants have been behind a series of recent attacks on schools in the region, including one in which gunmen opened fire on children taking exams in a classroom....
SF, that won't give them safety in Nigeria, at least not in the long run, the Nigerian govt. has to crack down on these people, and considering that Muhammadans don't make up the majority of the population, there is the crime and sin of inaction on the govt.'s part.
I could put this in the home schooling Germans thread, but it will go quite well here too, To think that the Islamists will just go away is ignorance, and many a theonomist no matter how Christian, should be seen as danger as Islamists, they have a lot in common. Islam and Extremism: What is Underneath.
Silence in the face of evil is itself evil; God will not hold us guiltless.Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act. Dietrich Bonhoeffer..he was a German preacher..jailed and finally hung because he chose to act against Hilter and his evil regime. There are two sides to God..love and mercy..the other side is wrath and Judgement. I hate the evil that's done to innocent people..so does God.
so we see this worldwide movement.... openly funding and training boys to be brought in... country after country..
then we see further down in the continent treacherous people like BH and with just a bit of reading find statements such as "it is hard to trace their funding" and "included machine guns mounted on trucks, anti-aircraft.."
so we have this worldwide movement of hired islamic insurgents disturbing CHristian communities for the sake of some global movement. we see the pattern throughout the ME, Africa and the West indeed, the same pattern.

You know, I try real hard to love my enemies and not wish any ill will upon them, but it can be so difficult at times. When I have spoken out over things like this before, once in a while, I feel like some are much to soft when telling me that instead of being angry, I should pray for them because they are blind; not knowing what they are doing. I believe in the prayer part, of course, but feel sorry for them when they are capable of such things? No. In my darkest days, I was never capable of the things we read about, because...I was in full control; knowing the difference between right and wrong. I knew what I was doing. I have no sympathy for child rapists, senseless murder, or pro-choice advocates. Although, I do wish salvation for each.
