Nigeria school massacre: 41 children killed, some burned alive


rt.com

41 students and an English teacher have been killed in an Islamic extremist attack on a boarding school in northeast Nigeria. Some students were burned alive, according to survivors being treated for burn and gunshot wounds.

"We received 42 dead bodies of students and other staff of Government Secondary School [in] Mamudo last night. Some of them had gunshot wounds while many of them had burns and ruptured tissues," Haliru Aliyu of the Potiskum General Hospital told AFP.

I am at a loss of words. What does one say in the face of such pure evil. Islamists are trying to burn down Cairo right now and are burning and killing children in Nigeria, Iraq, Afghanistan and many other places as we speak.

Still, in the midst of all this insanity, I have to believe that the difference between a humble and devout muslim, versus a stone throwing, child-burning, sharia demanding islamist, whom although sais he is a man of Allah, yet carries the mark of beastly violence in his heart, is so vast it is hard to measure. If not, then this entire religion is truly one of the past, with no hope of a good future as it seems to turn men into beasts and not humans of good virtues.

Islamists don't kill children, It doesn't matter what religion they belong to, It's a great sin for a Muslim to child an innocent child. Please stop spreading false reports on Muslims, the incident may have occurred, but there is no reason at all to say that it was "Islamists" who did it, because Muslims don't do such stuff. It doesn't matter where a Muslim lives, they don't kill children and it cannot be justified.

Spreading propaganda on Islam is not going to help you.

Ever seen the movie "Blood Diamonds"? They repeat a saying in that that just...fits. It really does. "This is Africa...." As if to say, this isn't the real world out there where everyone else lives and life has rules with limits. It's Africa, where both the best and very worst of humanity have reigned in one balance or another for a few thousand years.

The crime is horrific here..and the tragedy is how it's not terribly rare or shocking over there. All the more reason why Africa needs left to Africans and let them deal with their own issues.

What can be said about a thing like this? At the same time...What can be said about the overall place that has people which view doing this as acceptable enough to go on ahead ...and obviously not figuring it will be condemned within the circles they care about for opinions?

Doesn't matter what ethnicity, religion, color, beliefs that these barbarians are/have. Absolutely disgusting. I wish I could contribute more to the conversation but absolutely disgusting pretty much sums it up.

I hope these guys are caught and subjected to the worst forms of torture ever imagined by humanity. How about putting them in a Brazen Bull?

Why? Will a horde of peace loving, Allahu Ahkbar shouting 'extremist' Muslims come down on the OP and behead him?

When I watch a video of the Syrian rebels beheading people and shouting Allahu Ahkbar, are they all shouting that to give Islam a bad name, are they Buddhists in disguise?

There is absolutely no excuse for this.

How is it spreading propaganda?

Islam has a core of extremism that many Muslims appear to ignore. You can very well go and say this does not represent Islam but sorry to break it to you, but it does. A significant proportion of Muslims do practice an extremist form of Islam.

I agree with much of what you said Rabbit, but here we are speaking about an innocent child experiencing the horrifying nightmare of a grown up man putting it on fire with no one strecthing out a hand to help, Do you know how utterly painful an injury to the skin caused by fire, excessive heat or certain chemicals feels like?

Whether these children were "african", afghan or otherwise it doesnt matter. This whole deal tells something about us as species. We are still nothing more than wild beasts. Perhaps a bit civilized in certain areas, and refined, but still predators that in the name of an empty concept like religion can kill and torture eachother until no one is left.

This is so sad!!!


There is NO EXCUSE for such evil!!! To kill a child, let alone many is an absolute disgrace to the human species and the love for life.

I wish all evil entities, no matter what they call their God, would find light with love sooner than later. This hatred has got to stop!

Had you carefully read my post, Sir, you would have noticed I posed a rethoric question about the difference between a "devout muslim" and an "islamist child killer". This of course based on the news brought to us by RT. I choose to trust much of what RT delivers in terms of international news; at least compared to the pure propaganda offered by american newschannels.

Now if you, as a self-proclaimed muslim, are offended, despite having carefully read my post I cannot help you, because you seem to allow your volatile emotions govern your state of reasoning.

In ancient times devout and highly educated muslims where famous for their excellent state of reasoning compared to barbaric christians in Europe. Today it seems the roles have changed.

School pupils play beside the burnt main auditorium of Maiduguri Experimental School, a private nursery, primary and secondary school burnt by the Islamist group Boko Haram to keep children away from school in Maiduguri, northeastern Nigeria (AFP Photo)



Militants arrived on the scene with vessels carrying large quantities of fuel, which they used to torch the building. Those who tried to flee the burning wreckage were shot, the survivors said.



The area has been targeted by the Boko Haram militant group repeatedly. The sect’s name means “western education is sacrilege.”


It is quite possible you do not speak for all Muslims.... We had 19 people killed in South Thailand 2 weeks ago by your religion of peace. But they had a good excuse for they want a break away little Muslim paradise in Southern Thailand. No doubt give the land to them and all the problems will be solved, no?

For someone who defends the Muslim religion you might want to read the article before posting a reply...It might make your statement more believable for those who do not know better..

But the report says " Islamist group boko haram " did this to the children.

Yet you say Islamist don't kill children.

Are you saying the report is false? And if so what proof do have?

On The CIA And Christian Missionaries

The recent emergence of the relationship between the mainstream media, elected officials, White conservatives, Black civil rights leaders, a Sudanese opposition group (SPLA/M), and a Christian human rights organization, Christian Solidarity International (CSI), caused us to reflect over a long history of covert relationships between US and foreign intelligence agencies and Christian missionaries. One of the best examples of such was the relationship between the famous Wycliffe Bible Translators and the CIA. The relationship was documented in a book, Thy Will Be Done, written in the 1990s.

According to Gerard Colby and Charlotte Dennett, the association between the intelligence community and Christian missionaries predates the public emergence of the CIA. In Thy Will Be Done, they write of the Wycliffe Bible Translator's (also known as the Summer Institute of Linguistic -SIL) and its founder William Cameron Townsend's (also known as "Cam") association with the intelligence community.

"This was not the first time that SIL had served U.S. government intelligence purposes during the war. In 1942, after discussions in Washington with "some men who are interested in furthering good will between our countries", Cam specifically requested SIL's Mexico City office to solicit reports from "any of our workers who may have observed efforts on the part of anyone to make the Indians think that Americans are not their friends." Cam's directive ended with a message, "Please give my regards to Mr. Lockett in case you should see him in this connection." Thomas Lockett, commercial attaché', was Cam's confidential contact at the embassy after Ambassador Daniels departed in 1941. Lockett carried out intelligence missions for Washington, identifying suspected Nazi sympathizers and their companies for (Adolf) Berle and (Nelson) Rockefeller. SIL was one of his intelligence sources.

"SIL had helped gather anthropological information on the Tarascan Indians that ended up in Nelson Rockefeller's intelligence files. The files contained cross-references to reveal behavioral patterns among Indian peoples in everything from socialization (including aggressive tendencies) and personality traits, drives, emotions, and language structure, to political intrigue, kinship ties, traditional authority, mineral resources, exploitation, and labor relations. Rockefeller called these data the Strategic Index of Latin America."
