Boko Haram Dumped al-Qaeda for Islamic state

Boko Haram Has Dumped al-Qaeda For ISIS, Sect Will Kill More Christians Than Muslims – Analyst Warns

Boko Haram’s new leader Abu Musab Al-Barnawi revealed the reason why Boko Haram broke into two factions in an interview he granted after ISIS announced him as the new leader of the Jihadi sect.

In the interview, al-Barnawi indicates a major shift in strategy for the Nigerian extremists, who have killed many more Muslims than Christians in attacks in mosques with suicide bombers and gunmen.

Al-Barnawi says the new ISIS militants will respond to that threat by “booby-trapping and blowing up every church that we are able to reach, and killing all of those (Christians) who we find from the citizens of the cross.”

Wednesday’s announcement indicates a coup by Boko Haram breakaway group Ansaru against Shekau, and follows a trend of extremist Islamic groups moving away from al-Qaeda to the Islamic State, analyst Jacob Zenn said.

Al-Barnawi is the pseudonym of a Nigerian journalist allied with Ansaru, which is known for kidnapping foreigners.

Ansaru broke away from Boko Haram because it disagrees with the indiscriminate killing of Muslims.

    A focus on Christians alone is going to produce a result they’d never anticipated. Agitations for secession would increase to uttermost limits, and not even a Robert Mugabe would be able to hold the country together. Hence those terrorists might want to rethink on their strategy.

    As I once said, Boko Haram is political: They care about the unity of the country, and that is why they attack their fellow Muslims alongside with Christians in order that their true nature may remain a mystery.

    My mind, whenever the issue of Biafra is on, often goes to the Christians in the north. What would they do should Nigeria divide at last? They need the south for moral strength, and when the south is gone, they may not be able to withstand the persecution. It is only a wise government that can save this country from the precipice it is headed to.

    They will definitely fall apart and continue to disintegrate and fight one another. None of them will spill the innocent blood of christians and go Scott free. They too will be attacked either physically or in a divine way.

    Very well said huchennar
    Isaiah 54 says it all
    15 Behold, they shall surely gather together, but not by me: whosoever shall gather together against thee shall fall for thy sake.

    16 Behold, I have created the smith that bloweth the coals in the fire, and that bringeth forth an instrument for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy.

    17 No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.

    When you look at history of people’s all over the world you realize this is not the first threat to Christians or the first act of wickedness perpetrated against a set of people thought to be helpless and easy to eradicate. This threat also will not succeed. Our Redeemer Lives and HE is on the throne!

    In that case the battle lines have been drawn. Let all Christians start to equip themselves with weapons. I hate to say this but I have to be honest and come up with the facts. These blood suckers do not require any more negotiations, dialogue or diplomacy. The more we try to be peaceful with them, the more they are coming out more aggressively with different dimension. They have murdered thousands of their Muslims brothers and they don’t see anything wrong with that not to talk of other brothers from different religions. You don’t say because you are a Christian and watch your enemy destroy you while you can at least defend yourself. According to my grandfather he said, not every problem can be solved through patient and applying some force in some situation will not make the matter worst but will rather solve it. If these cowards feel some resistance from Christian counterpart, they will chill. There are at times when a sheep will bite you when you provoke her to the point of death. These morons do not understand peace why do we have to keep on appealing to them. I’m saying this because their statement is not just ordinary threat but they are ready to kill. They derive enjoying seeing blood gushing out their fellow human body. Now let our brothers and sisters in the north start to relocate back to south where they can be protected. We just have to be ready for these foolish Almajiris because they will attack us even if we don’t. President Buhari has been doing his best even though he is a Northerner. He has killed more Boko Haram than any other President in Nigeria but these sect kept recruiting themselves and coming out in different dimension. We are already battling economic depression couple with this Boko Haram war. We going to be in terrible situation if we fail to act on time. We cannot continue to live in fearful way and allow BH to take our joy from us. We must stand up with the joint effort of our military men to send the Boko Haram to where they belong.
