Via Breitbart and The Christian Post:

"The recent death toll of Christians in Nigeria has reached 120 with this week’s slaughter of more than 50 by Fulani Muslim militants in the Kaduna state of Nigeria, the Christian Post reported.

The Fulani jihadists, who have become a greater threat to Nigerian Christians than the Islamist terror group Boko Haram, stormed the villages of Inkirimi, Dogonnoma, and Ungwan Gora in the Kajuru Local Government Area last Monday, destroying 143 homes, killing 52 people, and wounding dozens more.

The assailants reportedly split into three groups, the first of which fired upon the people, the second set fire to buildings, and the third chased down people fleeing from the scene. Victims of the assault included women and children.

Monday’s incident followed an attack the day before in the Ungwan Barde village in Kajuru, where 17 Christians were killed and dozens of homes were burned.

In the first week of March, Muslim extremists massacred more than 30 Christians in Karamar village, setting fire to several houses and a church. The terrorists reportedly shot at families trying to escape the fire, killing 32.

The spate of recent attacks against communities has taken place within the predominantly Christian Adara chiefdom of southern Kaduna.

The governor of Kaduna state, Nasir El-Rufai, has imposed a dusk-to-dawn curfew on the Kajuru Local Government Area to try to contain the violence.

In late February, militants attacked the Maro village, killing 38 Christians and torching homes as well as a Christian church.

The Christian Post reported that Fulani militants killed thousands of Christians in 2018 alone in what many are calling a Christian genocide in Nigeria’s Middle Belt.

Last December, a leading Anglican bishop in Nigeria, Dr. Benjamin Argak Kwashi, said that the Muslim Fulani militants represent the number one terrorist threat facing Christians in Nigeria...."

These last mass killings signify that the Fulani jihadists are actually becoming a bigger threat to Nigeria's Christians than Boko Haram.

Boko Haram [loosely translated as 'The West is forbidden'; MFBB] is a relatively recent phenomenon, as it was only founded in 2002 by Mohammed Yusuf. During the first seven years, it did not resort to violence. That changed in 2009 under a new leader, Abubakar Shekau, and since then it has killed tens of thousands (!) and forced 2.3 million people to flee. In March 2015, Boko Haram aligned itself with ISIL and became known as The Islamic State in West Africa (ISWA) or Islamic State's West Africa Province (ISWAP).

As deadly as Boko Haram/ISWA is, it is about to be eclipsed by the Fulani jihadists, who have a history of violence reaching back far earlier: almost three centuries. The first Fulani jihad started in 1725 in Futa Yalon, when their jihadists, together with muslim slave traders, started a holy war against indigenous chiefdoms which had not even been reached by Christianity, and still professed traditional religions. By 1750, the Fula's 'imamate' was firmly established and sharia law was enforced. This success inspired the Fula and Toucouleurs on the banks of the lower Senegal river to start their own jihad in 1769, and by 1776 they also had an imamate, Futa Toro. In 1804, one Usman dan Fodio started an offensive eastwards, affecting the Hausa states. Within three decades, the old Bornu Kingdom was severely weakened and the until then biggest Fula jihad state was a fact: the Sokoto Caliphate.

So apparently the islam apologists will have to come up with another explanation than grievance because of the Crusades to explain these 18th and 19th century jihad wars against other religions than Christianity.

Anyway, expect muslim leaders the world over to condemn this latest gruesome violence perpetrated against Nigeria's Christian communities any time now.

On Planet Zeist, to be sure.
