April 15, 2013 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - While this administration is knee-deep in stirring up domestic unrest, intentionally, many may not realize the potentially devastating product that such callous and indifferent manipulation and stoking of long-held hates and grievances may produce.
Witness what is on daily display in the North of Africa where long standing tribal/ethnic disputes have been exacerbated, then exploited by Islamist forces in an effort to impose Shari'a on a people unwilling to accept it voluntarily.
In the extant case we are referring to Boko Haram [Jama’atul Ahlis Sunnah Lid’ Awati] and its increasingly gruesome campaign of terror in Nigeria. This is not a problem which is localized, but rather is widely occurring across the span of the continent, even in nations which are overwhelmingly Christian, such as Kenya where nearly 90% of the population is non-Muslim.
The topic itself [brutal Islamist violence] is seldom covered in the Western press. It's viewed as being toxic because it directly challenges one of the neo-Marxist left's core beliefs - that all cultures and societies are of equal moral stature.
If reported at all domestically, the reports are sanitized in an effort to protect the left's version of its sensibilities. They certainly want no part of advancing the idea that these African butchers are morally depraved and what they do is pure evil.
"[the]...Sunday Tribune learnt that the gunmen killed many students of Monguno Secondary School by slitting their throats, after laying an ambush for them as they returned home from centres where they wrote the West African Examination Council (WAEC) Senior Secondary Certificate Examination..."

Teachers have likewise been targeted. Preceding the above incident six local teachers were also slaughtered by members of Boko Haram.
Though the terrorist group's directorship is unclear many suspect that a former Nigerian politician is responsible for directing these and other recent attacks.
"...The Presidency has described former Head of State and presidential candidate of the Congress for Progressive Change, Maj.-Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (rtd.), as the major sponsor of the dreaded Islamic sect, Boko Haram and a leading protagonist of violence. [source, NIGERIA: Buhari Is Boko Haram’s Major Sponsor – Presidency, Codewit World News website]
Though desire for political power may be motivating Buhari [or some similarly obsessed party] these cases, Boko Haram has clearly defined its mission as one of widespread murder directed against Christians.
"...Boko Haram explained that the numerous bombings and mass shootings it carried out against churches and government buildings in the last few years are part of its mission to drive out Christians from Nigeria. The African country is divided by both geographical and religion lines, with most Christians concentrated in the South and Muslims in the North. "The Nigerian state and Christians are our enemies and we will be launching attacks on the Nigerian state and its security apparatus as well as churches until we achieve our goal of establishing an Islamic state in place of the secular state," Boko Haram said in no uncertain terms in June 2012..."

This administration has essentially done nothing about Muslim on Christian violence anywhere in the world, no statements of condemnation, no promise or offer of aid. Nor has the U.S. Africa Command been especially mindful, other than issuing pointless warnings, of taking any on-[the-ground action against these [or really any other Africa based terrorists, the overwhelming majority of which are al-Qaeda affiliates.
The media can, and will, continue to purposefully ignore the looming danger to American security emanating from al-Shabaab, Boko Haram and the myriad of similarly motivated Islamist terror groups.
At some point, as was the case with bin-Laden in Afghanistan [and previously bin-Laden in Sudan where he started organizing his cadre of mujahideen] this Shari'a borne jihadism will undoubtedly show up on these shores...again.
It's only a question of when...and as we go to press we are mindful of the multiple terrorist bombings which took place along the route of today's Boston Marathon.
A "foreign national," is under law enforcement supervision in a Boston hospital, suspected of complicity.
Though it should be clear to anyone charged with maintaining the security of the United States that as far as the Muslim world is concerned the threat comes from an ideology rooted in Islamic law, rather than simply the singular entity, al-Qaeda, this is not the case.
In this matter [as with many others] Team Obama is in league with his acolytes in the media, neither want their sacred cows gored by the truth...it's so inconvenient.
This game will only end when American blood flows on American streets, at which time there will be an accounting, with many parties found wanting.
