One Aljazeera news would want the world to believe that both the Muslims and the Christians in Nigeria have come together to denounced the activities of the Boko Haram. According to them, the moderate Muslim groups have called the activities of Boko Haram anti-Muslim, and the Christians are beginning to differentiate the moderate Muslims from the terrorists. The terrorist they called them … why not the Muslim terrorists? Because no matter how you view this, no matter from what angle you look at it, Boko Haram terrorists are Muslims, period! They are fighting the cause of Muslims. They are fighting to make Nigeria a Muslim country.
Depending on who is tell this story, depending on what side of the fence one is sitting, the truth is that the Christians are the target of the Boko Haram terrorists, therefore the Christians can never side with the Muslims, no matter how moderate they claim to be, to condemn Boko Haram. While the Christians are on their own in condemning Boko Haram, the Muslims should find a way of convincing the world that Boko Haram is not their birth child. If some Muslims are also dying by the hands of Boko Haram, it is because they find themselves on the wrong side of the targeted areas.
So far, Boko Haram has struck with an uncanny precision which shows how well they are informed and how selective they have chosen their targets. If some who they consider Muslims die in the attacks, they could be Northern Christians. There are Christians amongst them too, even if they try hard to ignore it, or want the world to believe that the Christians are only of Southern origin.
Most of the terrorist actions perpetrated by the Muslims against the Christians in the past, only ended up in making more Muslims to become Christians, and it will happen like that again this time. It is not by force that one becomes a believer, it is by how much one has to suffere to defend ones faith. By the end of the incursions of Boko Haram in the North, the North will become even more Christian. Mind my word!
