Why are the Muslims killing Christians in Nigeria? Are they at it again?

There is a group called Boko Haram which is bombing churches in northern Nigeria, and Jos (the main city there). This Muslim group also attacks villages, torching people's homes and using machettes to maim and kill the fleeing villagers. Needless to say, they attack Christian communities. They are out to make Nigeria a Muslim nation, and the only way they can do that is by force - by terrorising people. No doubt they hope to make the Christians move south, then they can be in total control. The media only gives sporadic mention of this but it's been going on for several years and increasing in intensity. Unfortunately, there is such a high level of corruption in Nigeria, it is unlikely that the government will be able to do anything to stop this evil.

Why doesnt Nigeria request Help against Boko Haram?

Nigeria is run by a largely corrupt and incompetent government which is more concerned with enriching its members than it is maintain civil order or providing for the needs of the Nigerian people. Boko Haram is a problem for the northern portion of the nation which is lightly populated and is a great distance from the oil reserves of the Niger River Delta. If the problems begin to creep closer to the oil reserves or the major cities of the nation, you'll likely see the government take a tougher stances against the group. If the EU or the US intervened then there's the real risk that either organizatin will demand that the government become more opaque and provide greater levels of accountability to its people. That does not seem to be a desirable set of changes for them.

Why do boko haram exist?

Given their actions in northern Nigeria, it would appear that they are out to attack Christianity and Christians in the main (whom they consider to be 'haram' - unlawful). They seem to exist in order to force Sharia law onto a nation that is not ruled by Sharia law. They give the impression that they are wanting to terrify men, women and children who have never done them any harm, to force them to flee or to become Muslims. They wish to remove Christian churches or to close them down. They wish to burn the houses of Christians (in the main) and to rape the women. Given that all of that is what they have been seen to be busy doing for many years, what other conclusions can anyone come to?

Do you support Boko Haram?

Boko Haram is just another Muslim terrorist group that kills innocent Christians for no reason. They got more violent after Goodluck Jonathan was elected president, because they did not like the fact that a Christian got elected. They are pretty much simply evil, simply hate, and murder. Normally, I don't support murder. So, no I do not support Boko. They are truly haram. Bacon be upon them.
