  • NYT Does Not Explain Boko Haram Targeted Victims Because They Were Christian

    The New York Times has published an April 11 article about over a hundred of the women who were kidnapped as girls by Boko Haram in Nigeria in 2014 and who have subsequently been returned. The story is accompanied by rather impressive graphics featuring the women. Yet for all the effort placed upon those graphics, little work seems to have been done to explain just why those women were kidnapped in the first place: namely because they were Christians. Also missing in the article is any detailed explanation about the ideology of Boko Haram itself that induced them to victimize Christians....
  • Thousands of deportations fail due to lack of papers [Germany]

    Last year there were 65,000 people whose lack of travel documents prevented them being deported from Germany. Now, though, people who don’t cooperate in obtaining a new passport will be punished. In 2014, John O. (not his real name) received a letter informing him that his application for asylum had been rejected. John O., then 41, is from Nigeria. At that point, he had already been living in Germany for three years. The immigration authority wants to deport John O. — but it can’t, because he has no passport. He says it was stolen. There’s no way of sending someone...

    As Easter approaches, one Christian family is praying for a miracle: the return of their kidnapped daughter who refuses to renounce her faith. It’s a story the networks aren’t telling. Last month, terrorist group Boko Haram captured an estimated 110 schoolgirls in Dapchi, Nigeria. On March 21, the Nigerian government confirmed that the girls who survived were freed. But one was missing: the only Christian girl among them, 15-year-old Leah Sharibu. According to her friends, it’s because she refuses to convert to Islam. For Good Friday, the Christian Association of Nigeria called for prayers for Leah, as her father hopes...

    People walk past the building that houses the offices of Cambridge Analytica in central London, March 20, 2018. Share WASHINGTON — Long before its controversial roles in the 2016 Brexit vote and U.S. presidential election, Cambridge Analytica influenced elections in Africa. The data mining company, under fire for its alleged use of 50 million Facebook accounts to shape campaign messages for then-candidate Donald Trump, also played a role in elections in Kenya and Nigeria, according to new reports. The company's first involvement in Africa dates to the general election in South Africa in 1994. That election marked the end of...
  • A restaurant is charging white customers more to highlight racial wealth inequality

    SAARTJ is a pop-up restaurant in the Louisiana city run by local Nigerian chef Tunde Wey who will be charging white customers $18 (Ł13) extra for their meal. Much like the cafe in Melbourne, Australia which charged a 'man-tax' due to the gender pay gap, SAARTJ is charging an increase to highlight the racial pay gap in New Orleans. In 2013, a study found that the average household income of an African-American in the city was 54 per cent lower than that of a white person.

    Dayanna Volitich, a 25-year-old social studies teacher at Crystal River Middle School in Florida, has been secretly hosting the white nationalist podcast “Unapologetic” under the pseudonym “Tiana Dalichov” and bragging about teaching her views in a public school, HuffPost has discovered. In her most recent podcast on Feb. 26, a guest railed against diversity in schools, dismissing the idea that “a kid from Nigeria and a kid who came from Sweden are supposed to learn exactly the same” and have the “same IQ.” Volitich enthusiastically agreed with the guest, and went on to argue that “science” has proven that certain...

    The Rt. Rev. Stephen Dami Mamza, the Catholic bishop of the Yola Diocese, stated: “It is on record that less than one week ago, no fewer than 20 innocent Christian farmers were killed in separate attacks in and around Tambo. Luru village in particular saw its worst days when herdsmen wielding sophisticated firearms stormed the area, killing 15 people. Within the period under review, not less than 10 churches were burnt down, and in some instances, worshippers were killed.” Mamza was apparently careful not to name the persecutors. After all, he doesn’t want to get called on the carpet by...
  • Nigeria says 110 girls unaccounted for after Boko Haram attack

    02/26/2018 5:31:49 AM PST · by BenLurkin · 12 replies
    One hundred and ten girls are missing after an attack on a school in northeast Nigeria by suspected Boko Haram insurgents, the information ministry said on Sunday, in what may be one of the largest abductions since the Chibok kidnappings of 2014. President Muhammadu Buhari, the 75-year-old former military ruler elected in 2015 after vowing to crush Boko Haram, has described the disappearance of the girls after Monday’s attack in the town of Dapchi, Yobe state, as a “national disaster”. The insurgents drove into the town of Dapchi on Monday and attacked the girls’ school, sending hundreds of students fleeing....

    Thousands of Christians are being butchered in Nigeria and whole villages being destroyed. Why are we so unconcerned? Why don’t we care? I believe the biggest reason is that we simply don’t know about what’s happening there. Well, now you know. Here are the facts.For the last several months, one of my good friends, a Christian missionary serving the poorest of the poor in Nigeria, has been sending me emails with terrifying news. Fulani tribesmen raping and killing villagers. Children being used as Islamic suicide bombers, resulting in scores of casualties. One horrible report after another.Yet with each email I...

    Sope Aluko, a Christian actress born in Nigeria who holds U.S. and British citizenship, said that the set of "Black Panther" (2018) felt "almost like church." "During breaks we shared our testimony of how we got to where [we] did and most of the people were testifying to God's miracles, it was almost like church," Aluko told Okay Africa's Ezinne Mgbeahuruike. Mgbeahuruike had asked her, "How was it working alongside such heavy hitters like Lupita Nyong'o, Michael B. Jordan, and Forest Whitaker?" The actress responded that the "Black Panther" set "felt very familiar and like home." "We had early call...

    Samsung Explains Why It Cannot Build Factory in Nigeria January 18, 2018 | by ndubuisi ekekwe The head of Samsung Electronics Africa, Sung Yoon, has explained why Samsung cannot manufacture its products in Nigeria. Of course, there is nothing new in the exposition except that Samsung has elevated the pulpit where it came from. Samsung may be in a fierce competition with Tecno, but the truth remains that even if it is #1 in Nigeria, in the smartphone business, the company would not build any plant in our nation. For all I know, Samsung is not a charity, and smartphones...

    “Nigeria security has declared war against Christians in this country.” When Muhammadu Buhari became President of Nigeria, many warned that he would favor the nation’s Muslims and introduce aspects of Sharia. And here we are. The death penalty for apostasy is part of Islamic law. It’s based on the Qur’an: “They wish you would disbelieve as they disbelieved so you would be alike. So do not take from among them allies until they emigrate for the cause of Allah. But if they turn away, then seize them and kill them wherever you find them and take not from among them...

    IBADAN, Nigeria — Allegedly abandoned by their American mother in Africa, seven children from Texas begged small change to buy food and shuttled from a neglectful stranger’s care to a concrete-block orphanage, Nigerians said Thursday. Eventually, the children proved their American citizenship to a passing missionary from Texas by singing “The Star-Spangled Banner.” He notified U.S. authorities, who got the youngsters home last week as Texas welfare officials investigated the mother. Ages 8 to 16, the three boys and four girls, all of whom had been adopted by the woman, apparently spent 10 months in this market city of millions...

    Tony Award winning Nigerian-British actress Cynthia Erivo used her Verified Blue Check Mark Twitter account to post a threatening message to President Donald Trump on Friday, invoking ‘Juju, voodoo and magic’, warning Trump he is ‘not safe.’ The threat was made in response to alleged comments by Trump in an Oval Office meeting with lawmakers about immigration in which he referred to African nations as ‘s***hole countries’. Trump denies he used that word but acknowledges using ‘tough’ language.
