WHY IS THIS NOT FRONT PAGE NEWS ? Christians being burned in Nigeria


 Thamsanqa Kitso Ndlovu’s Photos. Christians burnt alive by Sunni Muslims in NIGERIA…(Posted by Jillian Becker in Africa,

NORTHERN NIGERIA (ANS) – International Christian Concern (ICC) has told the ASSIST News Service that it has learned that Muslim rioters have killed more than 100 Christians and burned down more than 40 churches in an attack that began on Monday, April 18, 2011, in response to the election of Jonathan Goodluck, a Christian, as president of Nigeria. The rioters even destroyed the homes of many Muslims who supported President Jonathan Goodluck.

ICC says that the Muslim attackers allege that the election was rigged and General Muhammadu Buhari, a Muslim presidential candidate, is the rightful winner. Yet, impartial observers have called this election the fairest in decades.

According to the Commonwealth observers’ report, “The elections for the National Assembly and the Presidency were both credible and creditable and reflected the will of the Nigerian people.”

ICC sources states that it is difficult to know the full extent of the damage. The casualties could be much higher as the attacks took place over many of the 12 Muslim majority states in northern Nigeria. The situation is beginning to calm since security forces were deployed and enforced a 24 hour curfew.

Christian minorities living in northern Nigeria have faced repeated bouts of violence and discrimination at the hands of the Muslim majority. Since the introduction of Sharia law in northern Nigeria in 2001, tens of thousands of Christians have been killed.

“Christians in northern Nigeria are being killed and their churches and property destroyed for voting for the candidate of their choice. Why should churches be burned when just it’s an issue of politics? Why should Christians be killed just because someone won an election? Goodluck is not the president just for Christians; he is the president for every Nigerian. Why should Christians suffer because Jonathan won the election?” said a Christian leader in the northern Nigerian state of Kaduna.

Jonathan Racho, ICC’s Regional Manager for Africa, said, “We are very saddened by the violence against Christians and their property in northern Nigeria. Disputes over elections shouldn’t have been allowed to lead to religious violence against Christians. We have repeatedly seen Muslims attack and kill those of other faiths at the slightest provocation. We urge Nigeria to fully investigate this attack and bring the perpetrators to justice. As long as these attackers operate with impunity, the attacks will continue.”

 A charred body a victim of post election violence is seen on a street in Kaduna, Nigeria, Tuesday, April 19, 2011. Burned corpses with machete wounds lay in roads and smoke rose above this city where rioting broke out again Tuesday among Muslim opposition supporters who were angered by the announcement that the Christian incumbent president had won the election

ICC is a Washington-DC based human rights organization that exists to help persecuted Christians worldwide. ICC provides Awareness, Advocacy, and Assistance to the worldwide persecuted Church.

Nigeria, a country of 150 million people, is almost evenly split between Muslims in the north and the predominantly Christian south. The recent bloodshed has been happening in central Nigeria, in the nation’s “middle belt,” where dozens of ethnic groups vie for control of fertile lands.

The latest killings add to the tally of thousands who already have perished in Africa’s most populous country in the last decade over religious and political frictions. Rioting in September 2001 killed more than 1,000 people. Muslim-Christian battles killed up to 700 people in 2004. More than 300 residents died during a similar uprising in 2008.CBS5

UC Ministries:  WHY are things like this not FRONT PAGE news.  We might hear the TV mention the politics, but we simply do not see the reality that Christians are being targeted and  mutilated by Islamic radicals. Please continue to pray about this situation.   When you look at the evidence and the numbers involved the danger is that the mind almost closes down. It can almost become numb by the shear scale as to what is happening.

Hollywood’s films and special effects have produced a generation which is almost desensitized to the horrors of such violence, so that we cease to be shocked. But the reality is that we need to be moved and troubled by what we see.  We can also say that God is not unmindful as to what is happening.

Rev 6:9- And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:  And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?  And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellow servants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they [were], should be fulfilled.

There can be no doubt that this is the time that the book of revelations is talking about.

2Ti 3:12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.

 Gunmen killed 14 members of an extended family in a midnight raid on a village in central Nigeria on Saturday. Witnesses said they were all from one Christian family, and had been shot or hacked to death by Muslim Fulani herdsmen

We are not without HOPE!

2Cr 6:16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in [them]; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

So take comfort that those who have given their lives for the Cause of Christ.  They may have laid down their bodies,but  they will rise again immortal, incorruptible, Never to see death or pain, or sorrow.  He that sits in the heavens will wipe every tear from their eyes. What was lost is nothing compared to what is gainedDeath is not the last word in these matter.

So be encouraged

2Ti 1:12 For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.

Rom 8:38-39 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

  1. when yu shall see these things look UP your redemption draws near….

  2. The verse provided citing REvelation definitley does bpt pertain to these atrocities. It is in specific reference to the judgments being poured out by God during the Tribulation period — which is after the “rapture”.

    Unless millions of Christians worldwide have disappeared and I just didn’t catch the news on this, this is obviously not true.

    Other that that, I wholeheartedly agree.

    • The Bible tells us that no man will know the day or the hour of the rapture, however satan will work on trying to kill the Jews and the Christians before the rapture, as well as after the rapture. This is part of satan’s ploy to rid the earth believers in Christ.

  3. Small problem. The picture is of a gas tanker explosion in the CONGO back in July of 2010.
    see: http://www.reuters.com/article/2010/07/03/us-congo-democratic-explosion-idUSTRE6620H220100703

    • I am very sorry about that, all I do is repost blogs that I receive through various reputable news agencies, counter terrorism experts and government/military entities, so not sure if they posted the wrong photo or what. Once again, I do apologize.
