Nigerian Christians in US Petition Obama over Muslim slaughters

The State Dept refuses to name Boko Haram a terror org as Christians are slaughtered as Nigerian Christians in US Petition Obama

Members of the Christian Association of Nigeria ( CAN), based in the United States of America had sent a written petition to the White House and President Barack Obama lamenting the continued killing of innocent Christian worshipers in the northern parts of Nigeria.

The Christian group alleged that on Christmas day in northern Nigeria, Boko Haram was busy slashing the throats of Christians right inside their churches or at their homes, adding that at least 15 of such barbaric killings have been reported in the past number of days, while worshippers had to watch in terror as their colleagues’ throats were slashed open.

In a statement signed by the Executive Director of Christian Association of Nigerian-Americans, CANAN,’Laolu Akande in connection with the 2012 Christmas day attacks by Boko Haram in Maidugiri, Borno State, the body urged the American Government to designate Boko Haram, as Foreign Terrorist Organization ( FTO).

“What we are asking today is whether President Barack Obama and the State Department are comfortable to be mere witnesses to this evil? Is President Obama not aware that they are cutting the throats of innocent Nigerians who are simply practising their faith?

“In the hope that President Obama is not comfortable with what is going on, we as Nigerian-Americans, are appealing to his humanity to please instruct the State Department to do what is right and to label the Boko Haram group an FTO.

However CANAN said US designation of Boko Haram as a terrorist group would send the warning signal to those financing and supporting the terrorists, that the game is up.

It said without such global intervention, Boko Haram financiers and supporters are being dangerously awarded a grant of impunity!

“We had warned that Boko Haram would continue its tradition of killing Nigerian Christians on Christmas day. Last week marked the third straight year that the terror group has murdered Nigerian Christians in the church on a Christmas day.

“But the problem is worse than that. This year (2012) alone Boko Haram has killed almost 800 Nigerians, most of whom are Christians. In the last three years, over 3000 have been sent to tragic deaths. Victims also include people from several other countries.

The group said President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan had again over the weekend acknowledged his government’s inability to contain the Boko Haram menace.

Quoting the Associated Press, CANAN said Jonathan’s remarks offer a glimpse into “the worried leader’s mind as his weak government remains unable to stop attacks by the Boko Haram.”

“Our government in Washington DC, especially the White House and the State Department are fully aware of what is going on. But both President Barack Obama and outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have simply tolerated this impunity by their inaction.

“Already, American citizens have been affected, and the United Nations building in Abuja has been attacked by these terrorists. The US Congress has affirmed that Boko Haram is a threat to the US, especially with the group’s suspected links to al-Qaeda, “ it said.

Obama is too busy wasting your taxpayer dollars funding the Syrian Rebels who “Beheaded a Christian and Fed Him to the Dogs” this week.

  1. I see a war incoming, America HAS NEVER gone to other countries and told them they had to be CHRISTIANS, WHAT gives the EVIL BASTARDS the right to infiltrate our COUNTRY.

  3. Sure the muslim supremist Obama will do something about the slaughter of Christians in Nigeria, like he has done something about the slaughter of Copts in Egypt, as well as dozens of other countries around the globe, What will Obama do, well, of course, he will throw his support behind the islamists vile that are committing these atrocities as he has done with the muslim brotherhood in Egypt and his first cousin, Odinga Raila, in Kenya (a marxist/islamist extremist responsible for the death on many many Christians in Kenya).

  4. Every Christian Church and every Christian in American should be petitioning the Obama administration in support for Nigerian Christains, as well as Christians (and non-muslims) throughout the world (especially in Islamic countries). But, don’t anyone hold their breath waiting for Christian support! To all those who care, I urge them to contact their pastor or pastors, elders and decons, and/or any church board members. Contact them, challenge them to the support, fight for the rights, the protection, of those unable to fight for themselves. This is OUR responsibility, our Christian Duty, mandated by Jesus Christ; and we will be held accountable, for what we either do, or don’t do.

    I hate it when Christians say, “It hastens the coming of Jesus,” or “there will always be Christian persecution” or even more disgusting, “persecution strenghtens the believers”. I have only one word for those and it comes from Proverbs 24: 11 -12,

    “Deliever those who are being taken away to death, And those who are staggering to slaughter, O hold them back. If you say, See we did not know this,’ Does He not consider it who weighs the hearts? And does He not know it who keeps your soul? And will He not render to man accourding to his word?”

    We are to pray for our Christian brothers and sisters, we are to bear their burderns …. And part of that means “we” should be putting shoe leather to our prayers.

    • I am in. Love that you backed it with scripture. Help me with this where I struggle. Scripture tells us to love thy neighbor. How do we love the Muslim down the block in a hijab who I suspect talks about Koran at dinner with hubby and kids and about killing infidels?

  5. Christians all over the Islamic world are being persecuted. Torture, rape, and murder are common place. President Obama just sent one of the Genocidal maniac organizations $1.4 Billion dollars: The Muslim Brotherhood. Also, the State Department continues to issue refugee visas to Somali immigrants that follow Sharia. This is like giving your mortal enemies plane tickets from their homes to America. Then, putting them on welfare, giving them housing, and waiting for the right moment that they opt to practice their Jihad. Treason is, treason is treason treason treason……

  6. Unless there is something to be gained, Obama will turn a blind eye. He’s a Muslim and has impunity to lie for a larger cause just like every Islamist organization. All we must do is pay attention to where the money goes. Follow the money and that’s where Obama’s heart is.

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
