Islamic terror expert Raymond Ibrahim has published a report showing that Boko Haram terrorists in Nigeria have destroyed 1,000 churches and displaced hundreds of thousands of Christians.
From August to October of 2014, nearly 200 churches were destroyed and 190,000 people were displaced.
In the last four years alone, 1,000 churches have been burned to the ground and thousands of Christians have been killed or driven from their villages.
Boko Haram killed 2,053 in 2014 alone.
According to Ibrahim:
A typical church attack in Nigeria that occurred in October was reported as follows: “Armed Muslim extremists stormed two churches in Taraba state on Sunday (Oct. 19) and killed 31 people as they worshipped… Two pastors, one pastor’s son, and 28 other Christians were slain in the attacks.” According to the Rev. Caleb Ahema, president of the Christian Reformed Church of Christ in Nigeria, “The attack on Christians in Taraba state is a planned genocide against Christians by Islamic insurgents who have invaded the southern part of the state, inhabited mostly by Christians, since February.”
The Center for the Studies of Global Christianity reports that about 100,000 Christians are killed each year for their beliefs – one every five minutes. Most of these are killed by Islamic terrorists.
These attacks will continue and inevitably grow worse without the intervention of Western nations with the will to fight Islamic killers wherever they are found. The only thing these killers understand is brute and unrelenting military force against them until all of them are either killed, captured, or driven into hiding.
