Bodies Pour In as Nigeria Hunts for Islamists
NYTimes ^ | 5/7/13 | Adam Nossiter

MAIDUGURI, Nigeria — A fresh load of battered corpses arrived, 29 of them in a routine delivery by the Nigerian military to the hospital morgue here. Past Coverage of Boko Haram in Nigeria

Unexpectedly, three bodies started moving.

“They were not properly shot,” recalled a security official here. “I had to call the J.T.F.” — the military’s joint task force — “and they gunned them down.”

It was a rare oversight. Large numbers of bodies, sometimes more than 60 in a day, are being brought by the Nigerian military to the state hospital, according to government, health and security officials, hospital workers and human rights groups — the product of the military’s brutal war against radical Islamists rooted in this northern city.

The corpses were those of young men arrested in neighborhood sweeps by the military and taken to a barracks nearby. Accused, often on flimsy or no evidence, of being members or supporters of Boko Haram — the Islamist militant group waging a bloody insurgency against the Nigerian state — the detainees are beaten, starved, shot and even suffocated to death, say the officials, employees and witnesses.

Then, soldiers bring the bodies to the hospital and dump them at the morgue, officials and workers say. The flood is so consistent that the small morgue at the edge of the hospital grounds often has no room, with corpses flung by the military in the sand around it. Residents say they sometimes have to flee the neighborhood because of the fierce smell of rotting flesh.

What? No mention of the Christians enslaved, tortured, killed, maimed by the terrorist Islamists?

NY Slimes seems to lack an interest in why this is happening...

Does the NYT report on the frequent massacres of Christians perpetrated in the region by muslim militants with such thinly veiled outrage? Hell no.

WINSTON CHURCHILL ON ISLAM - IN 1899!

“How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries!
Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia
in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many
countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods
of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet
rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the
next of its dignity and sanctity.

The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as
his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must
delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased
to be a great power among men. Individual Moslems may show splendid
qualities - but the influence of the religion paralyses the social
development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists
in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and
proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa,
raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity
is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it
had vainly struggled, the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell
the civilization of ancient Rome.”

-Sir Winston Churchill (The River War, first edition, Vol. II, pages
248-50 (London: Longmans, Green & Co., 1899).

HERE IS ANOTHER QUOTE:

“To me it seems certain that the fatalistic teachings of Muhammad and the utter degradation of women is the outstanding cause for the arrested development of the Arab. He is exactly as he was around the year 700, while we have kept on developing”

— General George S. Patton: The War as I Knew it, 1974, p.49

It’s good to see the will to live despite the curse of Islam!

“They were not properly shot”!

Sounds like that problem was quickly solved!

Just like the crusades, they only report when people fight back against the muslims.

“Accused, often on flimsy or no evidence, of being members or supporters of Boko Haram . . .”

‘The slime at the NYSlimes can wring their hands all they want, but this is how you fight terrorists.’

Be careful what you applaud - - it could come back to bite you.

The Nigerian Islamists sowed this, so they will reap it.

You cannot return niceties for brutality. The Islamists are committing atrocities even worse than this.

If they don’t want to be mown down like rodents then Boko Haram should wear uniforms and become signatories of the Geneva convention.

If an army fights without uniforms then it bears the blame for the death of any noncombatant citizens who get killed in the confusion of war.

And of course if an army is actually just a freakish gang of rapists from the 8th century then whatever, I’m over it.
