My latest in the Pierre Capital Journal. A taste:
In Nairobi, Kenya, Muslim gunmen assaulted a shopping mall, killing at least 62 people. Reportedly they asked hostages to profess faith in Islam. Those who agreed were set free. Others were not so lucky.
In Peshawar, Pakistan, Islamic suicide bombers killed 82 persons outside a Christian church. Bombers waded into the congregation as it dispersed after service, exploding themselves within the throng of approximately 500.
In Abuja, Nigeria, recently 160 were killed in a weeklong anti-Christian string of violence by Islamic radicals. The main group involved is called Boko Haram, which apparently believes “western education is a sin” and demands all Christians leave northern Nigeria as it tries to set up a new Islamic state.
Some may be aware that Christians are being targeted in both Egypt and Syria by Islamic radicals. In both cases their tactics seem to be a combination of an attempt to incite an overreaction on behalf of official authorities and attempts to purge all vestiges of Christianity.
