    Nigeria: Muslims storm church choir practice, kidnap 19 Christians, murder one The world continues to take little notice of this ongoing persecution. After all, it isn’t as if something important like “Islamophobia” were being committed. “Armed gunmen kidnap 19 Christians, kill one in Kaduna State, Nigeria,” The Alabama Baptist, June 11, 2019: Suspected Fulani herdsmen stormed a church choir practice and kidnapped 17 Christians in north-central Nigeria on May 19, the same night gunmen killed a Christian and kidnapped two others at a Baptist church, sources said.

    Nigeria: “local Muslims” murder 7 Christians on way home from church, burn Christian homes The jihad against Christians continues unimpeded in Nigeria with little to no attention from Western media. Shame on them and Western Churches especially who fail to advocate for persecuted Christians out of fear of being branded ‘intolerant’, ‘islamophobic’ and ‘racist’. Gunmen suspected to be local Fulani Muslims killed several Christians as they made their way home from church services in Jos, Nigeria…following the murder of another area Christian. Fulani jihadists (often referred to as “herdsmen”) have successfully infiltrated the general population of “local Muslims” in Nigeria....

    US refineries have upped their imports of Iraqi, Nigerian, Brazilian, and Angolan crude oil, with May volumes double that of April levels, data from Refinitiv Eikon showed on Monday. Oil imports from these countries to the United States spiked as oil supply from Iran and Venezuela dried up, and as reduced OPEC production made scarce heavy sour and even medium sour grades. Of note, Iraqi oil rose to 600,000 barrels per day in May, just in time for summer driving season to come, Refnitiv data showed.

    Christian charity Open Doors was informed that armed members of the terrorist organisation - that has pledged allegiance to IS - invaded the Christian community of Kuda near Madagali in Adamawa state, north east Nigeria on Monday. They then went door to door, killing as many as 25 people. Field workers have asked supporters around the world to pray for the Lord's grace to the Church in the Madagali area as they face renewed instability. A spokesperson from Open Doors told Premier: "Pray for the Holy Spirit to be at work in the lives of all those affected. "Pray that...

In the course of investigating anti-Christian violence throughout Nigeria, I have seen things that drove me to tears. I have entered rooms and houses that were covered with blood. I have seen bodies that were shot and butchered; corpses of...

    Nigeria: Jihad against Christians The current violence, which has been getting worse since early 2017, "is slightly different, in that it is a series of targeted attacks on Christian communities attempting to displace farmers and take land for herders." — Nathan Johnson, International Christian Concern, Regional Manager for Africa. "Christians in Nigeria are treated as second-class citizens in the twelve northern states, where sharia law is implemented. They are victimized in many ways. Christian girls are kidnapped and forced into marriage to Muslim men. Pastors are abducted for ransom. Churches are vandalized or completely destroyed." — Nathan Johnson. "The Nigerian...

    Nigeria: Muslims massacre 17 Christians after baby dedication, including the child’s mother These incidents are really happening, and they’re happening more and more frequently. In the West, meanwhile, those who speak about them are vilified as “Islamophobes” and steadily defamed, deplatformed, and silenced. Silencing news of such incidents, however, will not prevent them from happening, even, eventually, in the U.S. “Muslim Fulani Herdsmen Massacre Christians after Baby Dedication in Nigeria,” Morning Star News, April 18, 2019: JOS, Nigeria (Morning Star News) – Muslim Fulani herdsmen killed 17 Christians who had gathered after a baby dedication at a church in central...

    Hundreds of lives have been lost and hundreds of homes have been burned since the start of 2019, raising questions again about the truth behind the violence occurring between Fulani Muslim herdsmen and predominantly Christian farmers in Nigeria’s Middle Belt. While conflicts between nomadic herdsmen and farmers in the Middle Belt date back decades, there’s been a noticeable increase in deadly massacres across several states in the Middle Belt of Nigeria since January 2018, where people were slaughtered and communities razed. In addition to the seemingly countless numbers of people killed, it has been estimated that as many as 300,000...

    Italian teen girl was likely dismembered alive by Nigerian migrant drug dealer By ARTHUR LYONS 26 March 2019 One of the most nauseating revelations to emerge from the trial for the murder of 18-year-old Italian Pamela Mastropietro is that she was likely to have been dismembered while still alive. The horrifying reports come following court testimony given by Vincenzo Marino, a key witness in the trial of Nigerian drug pusher Innocent Oseghale who on trial for the brutal murder the young girl last year, Il Giornale reports. Mastropietro’s mother claims that her 18-year-old daughter had become estranged from the family...
  • Chicago Dilutes Right to Vote by Designating Illegal Alien ID Card as a Registration Document

    Chicago's new identification card, created with illegal aliens in mind, is being deemed acceptable by the State of Illinois for voter registration purposes. First, let me say without a shadow of a doubt that there is no instant "trigger" when an alien registers to vote, and the implication that an alien will therefore instantly be deported is risible. Even more risible is the assertion that checking a box attesting to citizenship will meaningfully deter illegal voting by aliens. That defies human nature. Since when has any fraudster been held back by the notion that he or she must lie on...

    Do the Democrats have an anti-Semitism problem? Seems that Rep. Ilhan Omar's "pioneering" on that sick front has drawn other anti-Semites to the party. Daniel Greenfield at Frontline has a report: Just as the Dems were recovering from their anti-Semitism controversy with Rep. Omar, they've got an anti-Semitic bigot with name recognition running for Senate in New Mexico. It's yesterday's lefty heroine, Valerie Plame, covert secret agent and inspiration for James Bond who inspired one of the more unintentionally hilarious lefty Bush era movies (one that Aaron Sorkin would probably like to forget.) Plame was force to apologize after sharing...

    Freedom of Speech Dead in UK as London’s Muslim Mayor Defends Arrest of Christian Preacher Britain continues to race toward its own ruin. My latest in the Geller Report: How much has Britain deteriorated as a free society? This much: a Christian preacher from Nigeria, Oluwole Ilesanmi, recently discovered that preaching Christianity in public is illegal in London, because it offends Muslims. And London’s Muslim mayor has defended the arrest of Ilesanmi, saying that “there are limitations” on the freedom of speech. Ilesanmi was arrested on February 23 while he was preaching, after a Muslim complained to police. A London...
