In their push to force the other half of Nigeria that is not Muslim to submit to Islamic rule, Muslims are using their usual barbaric methods to force conversion and/or submission to Islam and Shari’a Law.
As Nigeria falls victim to radical Islamism, a sect in the African nation has announced a jihad it says will not be finished until Islamic law or Shariah, rules supreme. More than 10,000 people have been killed through Christian-Muslim conflict in Nigeria since 1999.
A new statement released by a group identified as Boko Haram – essentially a phrase meaning Western civilization or education is illegal – says its goals include: “That we shall make the country ungovernable, kill and eliminate irresponsible political leaders of all leanings, hunt and gun down those who oppose the rule of Shariah in Nigeria and ensure that the infidel does not go unpunished.”
According to the report from the newspaper Vanguard linked on the AllAfrica.com news site, Boko Haram “has declared total Jihad in Nigeria, threatening to Islamize the entire nation by force of war.”
“That the Boko Haram is an Islamic Revolution which impact is not limited to Northern Nigeria, in fact, we are spread across all the 36 states in Nigeria, and Boko Haram is just a version of the al-Qaida which we align with and respect,” the statement said. “We support Osama bin Laden, we shall carry out his command in Nigeria until the country is totally Islamized which is according to the wish of Allah.”
The statement warned, “We have started a Jihad in Nigeria which no force on earth can stop. The aim is to Islamize Nigeria and ensure the rule of the majority Muslims in the country. We will teach Nigeria a lesson, a very bitter one.”
It also promised starting this month, “We shall carry out series of bombing in Southern and Northern Nigerian cities, beginning with Lagos, Ibadan, Enugu and Port Harcourt. The bombing will not stop until … Western Civilization is wiped off from Nigeria. … We shall make the country ungovernable, kill and eliminate irresponsible political leaders of all leanings, hunt and gun down those who oppose the rule of Shariah in Nigeria and ensure that the infidel does not go unpunished.”
