Today's Mis-Direct Flavor? Boko Haram

In one of the latest examples of the inability of writers, the media and politicians to clearly define our current enemy, Nick Cohen, writing for "The Observer"  makes an impassioned plea for the safety of some two hundred and twenty Nigerian girls, seized by one of the more current and infamous forward elements of Islamic Jihad, Boko Haram. For starters, these girls are Christian and from a predominately Christian village in northeast Nigeria, called Chibok.

What I will agree to is the insulting, narrowly focused Obama Administration which has bent over backwards, seeking asylum for children and families of Islamic origin while unconscionably ignoring the plight of beleaguered Christians in places like Homs, the Coptic villages of Egypt and now, Christians once again being brutalized by the Devil's forces in Nigeria.

By the end of the Observer piece, Cohen quotes a Peter Singer who allegorically describes an apathetic world community, unwilling to secure the safety of a drowning child for fear of ruining expensive clothing. For Cohen, the self-involved and well-dressed, neer-do-well stranger in the allegory, is the collective westernized cultures who are not willing to fund organizations which purport to be helping these people.

He also misses a salient point; the name "Boko Haram", translates as "Western Education is Sinful", ie, everything western is tainted and sinful because most western cultures are not Islamic. So, he castigates westerners for not giving western funds to largely, western charities, to transfer to a region ostensibly controlled by Boko Haram fighters who, by their very name, denigrate - and hate Westerners. It is probably also lost on him and others that these children were taken, largely, for dabbling in western cultural ideas…like giving.

Let me clear this up for him and anyone else listening who is similarly confused; It isn't that people don't want to help. It is, however that people don't trust the true abilities, competency and veracity of those claiming to help - especially, governments. It has been proven, over and over again that these organizations which have been established for the reported purpose of aiding the afflicted, waste money at a rate slightly less than our infamous governing body in Washington DC. To add insult to injury, they are headed by CEO's or even committees stripping those donated funds to feather their grossly incongruous incomes and retirement packages.


Honorable people claiming to help don't generally ingratiate themselves in this most obscene of ways. They do like the rest of us do - they donate their time and energy and yes, their incomes! But it seems the majority of the leaders of these "charities" are simply establishing a comfortable business position and fattening their resumes.

The average person gets tired of hearing about these abuses and eventually gets the message; "give at your own risk". For Christians taught to give, there is another exhortation, to be good stewards of what we have, insuring we are using our gifting, talents, materiel - and money, for things which will bear fruit. Giving money to organizations or supporting efforts of government, blindly, out of emotion driven reflex is not only likely to run afoul of that command, but here on earth, is likely to do little more than create an income for people not properly focused.

It was also discouraging to see Cohen added to the endless list of people displaying the same aversion to accuracy that this government has regularly; he seems to lack the courage to define the literal enemy in this story looking instead to rail against a microcosm; Boko Haram.

The enemy, is Islam and Islam's soldiers in their war against all of humanity, are Muslims. Until courage, common sense, theological and historical accuracy are returned to the discussion, you will continue to find people reticent about giving their hard earned money to people and organizations of dubious intent.

Additionally, the world government and the governments of nations saying they would help, are not truly focused on the true definitions of this enemy and as such, seek to treat Islamic combatants with "human dignity", giving them the same deference reserved for honorable men, donning the uniforms  of sovereign nations.

These "people", these Islamic terrorists, these "True Soldiers" are at best, stateless bandits; at worst, agents of Hell. They deserve no quarter nor should they be afforded any. They should be slaughtered where and when found, their bodies desecrated and placed in a burn pile with the rotting remains of swine.

The Ummah needs to know beyond any shadow of doubt, that to seek Allah's Paradise through death by prosecuting Jihad, will reap them an unclean and meritless death and an enemy with the tenacity of a dog with a bone who will locate, close with and destroy them until they repentantly crawl back under the Rock from whence they came.

Until these conditions are met, Mister Cohen needs to redirect his rhetorical cannon at the true enemy of compassionate giving; the politicians and those self-proclaimed agencies of mercy.

Come back when you are ready to truly help both these girls and so many others brutalized by the satanic doctrines of Islam because there are multiple millions of us prepared to sacrifice and to do what is necessary in order to stop this scourge upon the earth.

We are not, however, simply going to feather the nests of not even remotely imaginative thieves just because one frustrated writer decides to insult the very people who truly want to help!

  1. The Background Obama Can't Cover Up !

    Islam, part of the Living River of History, affected even the 2012 US election!
    The "headwaters" of this River was Adam, according to Judaism, Christianity, Islam etc .
    In the OT (Deut. 28), "tributaries" wanting to join the River will be blessed while "distributaries" who want to flow away from it will be cursed. Those wishing to totally separate from the fresh Living River will end up as polluted, dying "oxbow lakes."
    In the OT we see Israelites repeatedly flowing away from God, then repenting and returning to Him; we also see heathen "oxbow lakes" creating their own "gods" and being allowed by God to plunder and kill the erring Israelites.
    Then, at the right time, the Living River took on new life with the arrival of the Promised One who offers "living water."
    In the 7th century Islam, drawing from both OT and NT, chose to be a distributary away from this River. Many scholars have viewed it as the final Antichrist: note "scourge" (Isa. 28), "Assyrian" (Mic. 5), "Euphrates" (Rev. 9) etc.
    God will allow this "scourge" to temporarily persecute and even kill apostate Jews (JINOs) and Christians (CINOs). Jews, especially in "entertainment," seem more expert in apostasy than Christians since Jews have been at it 2000 years longer than Christians have (Google "jewishfaces.com/porn.html") - but Christians apparently want to catch up to the Jews!
    It's apparent that others will join Islam in its end-time inquisition; its great oil wealth can captivate many leaders and already we are seeing apostate American leaders being bribed into turning against true American patriots.
    Those who ignore (or try to dilute or destroy) the God-ordained Living River of History will be swept down it to an ocean made by their own never-ending tears of agony and despair.
    The good news is that American JINOs & CINOs can overcome the "scourge" discussed above. The secret is found by checking out "II Chronicles 7:14" & "John 3:16" on the web.
    There's still time - and freedom - to Google or MSN "Obama Promotes Public Sex," "Obama a Black-Slavery Avenger?," "Dangerous Radicals of the Religious Right," "Pretrib Rapture Politics," "Mikey Weinstein, Jesus-Basher," "Christ's return is NOT imminent," "Pretrib Rapture Dishonesty," "Pretrib Rapture Secrets," and (for dessert) "Pretrib Rapture Pride."
    In light of Matthew 7:2, if we tolerate Christian leaders who lie to us and steal from us, we shouldn't be surprised if God allows us to have political leaders who lie to us and steal from us!

  3. The Old Testament delivers us three distinct messages (my "outline"); Creation, man's total inability to save himself, the coming of "the" Savior. In the earliest of promises, God said he would send 'a' Savior but it soon turns to the definite article "the". So the Old Testament then lays the ground work for the specifics of the then, future plan. The New Testament simply introduces the Savior, inextricably ties him to the ancient prophecies, delivers a new Commandment to the newly Saved and makes it clear most will stray.

    Islam is being seen as "the seat" of the anti- Christ by many but I think they are focusing a little too hard. Islam will be a catalyst and I believe the Anti-Christ will swoon Muslims, as he will the Kafir, because of his knowledge and his craftiness/personna. He will broker the peace on the Temple Mount which will allow the Israelis enough time to rebuild the Temple...they see this coming even now.

    He has certainly compromised western civilization, using Islam which is continuing to destabilize and pervert our western societies and causing many to abandon the faith of our fore father's by simply planting a seed of doubt in the minds of weak "believers" and winning over those who have never considered God or anything beyond themselves.

    Delivering us a psychologically damaged Presidential candidate, at a point in time when people were overwhelmed with war, were becoming more perverted in their minds, self-centered, lacking a sense of nationalism, falling for the "the messiah" complex, being willing to cheat to win, further pollutes the waters of unique US jurisprudence and moves us ever closer to, well, confusion.

    This will all aid the anti-Christ when he is finally introduced/"revealed".

    Add to this the relationship between Russia and China (the bringing together of the whole family of Gog), along with Russia's inextricable tie with Iran (Persia), and I believe we are "that" generation, witnessing the unfolding of final events.

  4. I just saw your latest blog article above (late comer). The recurring theme I see you commenting on in your blogs is the seemingly intentional mis-characterization of Islam by our current leaders and the masses who seem perfectly willing to swallow this crap.I mean I see our president as an obvious Muslim sympathizer (with that name? are you kidding?) Who knows little of America and it's heritage/culture etc (I doubt he knows who Barney Fife is....really) but I don't get all the Americans who have decided to drink the kool-aid? No one does something for nothing. Every action is intended for a purpose. Do masses of people really think COIN works or Islam is reasonable? And they seemingly hate Christian ideas, moral values, traditional thought etc.... Is it all as simple as people blinded by sin and drinking their own blood to quench their thirst? It dumbfounds me and yet it exists. I just don't get it.
