Religion of Peace in Nigeria – now beheading with chainsaws

From RT:

Boko Haram kills, ‘beheads with chainsaws’ 40 people to derail Nigeria elections

Militants from extremist group Boko Haram attacked several Nigerian towns, torching houses and fatally shooting those who fled before reportedly beheading some of the bodies with chainsaws. The string of terror attacks comes amid the presidential vote.

At least 25 people were killed and more than 30 injured in the village of Buratai in Borno state, local officials confirmed.

Surviving witnesses described gruesome scenes of murder, saying that not only did the extremists set homes on fire and shoot those trying to escape, but also decapitated the bodies.

Local politician Ibrahim Adamu, who fled the scene, told CNN that Boko Haram “slaughtered their victims like rams and decapitated them,” adding that “they burned a large part of the village and we are afraid some residents were burnt in the homes because most people had gone to bed when the gunmen struck.”

Meanwhile, at least 14 people were killed in separate attacks by the radical Islamist group in the towns of Biri and Dukku, located in Gombe state. The victims included a legislator, AP reported.

    That must be like hell. The evil one is very visible. Any place with genocide and cold blooded gruesome murder happening is being led by satan himself.
    We REALLY must remember this is big time spiritual warfare.
    Bishop Sheen said to priests, but really it is for ALL…..spend one hour in daily adoration and that one hour is warfare against evil.
    We must pray more and join God’s army.
    We must spend time with Jesus. We must.
    And remember “the blood of the martyrs is the seed of the church”. Scary in this era since it seems that it was more from the past. But no, it is now too. Redemptive suffering prevails and God is doing some mighty work in this age.
    We have had it easy for too long and now God is allowing us to reap what we sowed. God help us. We need each other so let’s stick together!
    And BTW, each second we spend time doing anything for and with God….He pays back in abundance. He gives us the gift of more time!

    The people of Nigeria will remain in my prayers. I pray to God that He grant them peace and return their children.

    We keep hearing about the kidnappings, massacres, and other atrocities committed by Boko Haram in Nigeria and then arrogantly boasted about in the media by these monsters.

    It is my understanding, that Boko is an Islamic terrorist faction not supported by the government. Are the citizens of Nigeria permitted to bear arms? If not, perhaps a policy change there would leave these villages less vulnerable. It would be a simple solution to allow the people to protect themselves. History shows that in areas where the people were willing to take up arms to defend their homes and hearths, Islam made no in-roads. In the parts of the world where they could not, or would not defend themselves, these once Christian civilizations are today entirely Islamic.

    May God grant Goodluck Jonathan the wisdom to arm his citizenry. If not, he is giving way to Sharia and encouraging the continuation of the kidnap, rape and murder of his country’s school aged children.

    Why is the world not outraged?!?
