Happy Easter from Islam in Nigeria- 38 killed in Easter bombing

WARNING! Graphic video below. View with caution and please be sure no young children are within viewing distance.

Why would we expect islam to not 'wish' Christians a happy Easter or Christmas by killing and maiming innocent victims who were simply going to church? This is now the normal expectation for Christians, Jews or those who-follow any other religion but islam, to be attacked at some place of worship wherever islam has stained the global landscape.

But wait a minute, does not the qur'an preach peace, harmony and tolerance to all, including people of the book? How many churches are there is Saudi Arabia, what happens if you are caught speaking about any religion but islam in most muslim countries? How about if you are caught with a bible? The answer is usually violence of some sort and many times it is fatal to the accused. These people in Nigeria were simply going to church and that is enough to declare them guilty and punishable by such a crime as this bombing.

In Nigeria, almost 40 people were killed when a massive bomb was set off near a Christian church. Was the church the target of the blast, was boko haram responsible for this latest, horrific attack in Nigeria on Easter Sunday?Time and someone claiming responsibility for this bombing will be sure to come out. As with most terrorist organizations, responsibility will be claimed as these murderers will want the intimidation, fear, credit and exposure that such a crime will bring.

islam, killing, wounding, persecuting any and all who stand in islam's way of establishing a global islamic caliphate. This will happen here and it is just a matter of time.


Easter Bombing Kills at Least 38 in Nigeria

If Westernized Muslims spent as much time telling their non-Westernized Muslim brothers that Islam is peaceful as they do complaining about Islamophobia, perhaps we wouldn't read about terrorist attacks on a daily basis. Of course, we all know it would be a waste of time trying to convince non-Westernized Muslims that Islam is peaceful, since the Qur'an clearly indicates otherwise.

LAGOS, Nigeria – A car bomb exploded along a busy roadway Sunday morning in a central Nigeria city, killing at least 38 people in the latest attack on a region beset by religious, ethnic and political violence, an official said.

The blast struck Kaduna, the capital of Kaduna state, leaving charred motorcycles and debris strewn across a major road in the city where many gather to eat at informal restaurants and buy black market gasoline. Nearby hotels had their windows blown out of by the force of the powerful explosion, which engulfed a group of motorcycle taximen.

At least 38 people were killed in the blast, said Abubakar Zakari Adamu, a spokesman for the Kaduna state Emergency Management Agency. Others suffered serious injuries and were receiving treatment at local hospitals, Adamu said.

The explosion badly damaged the nearby All Nations Christian Assembly Church as churchgoers worshipped at an Easter service, the possible target of the bomber. Witnesses said it appeared the explosive-laden car attempted to go into the compound of that church before it detonated.

"We were in the holy communion service and I was exhorting my people and all of a sudden, we heard a loud noise that shattered all our windows and doors, destroyed our fans and some of our equipment in the church," Pastor Joshua Raji said.

Another witness, Augustine Vincent, said he was riding a motorcycle just behind the car when it exploded.

"God saw our heart and saved us," he said.

No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, though suspicion immediately fell on a radical Islamist sect known as Boko Haram.

Boko Haram, whose name means "Western education is sacrilege" in the Hausa language of Nigeria's north, is waging an increasingly bloody fight with security agencies and the public. More than 380 people have been killed in violence blamed on the sect this year alone, according to an Associated Press count.

The sect, employing suicide bombers and assault-rifle shootouts, has attacked both Christians and Muslims, as well as the United Nations' headquarters in Nigeria.

The sect has rejected efforts to begin indirect peace talks with Nigeria's government. Its demands include the introduction of strict Shariah law across the country, even in Christian areas, and the release of all imprisoned followers.

The blast also comes as the United Kingdom and the United States had warned its citizens living in the oil-rich nation that violence was likely over the Easter holiday. (Read more.)
