The ongoing genocide against Christians by Muslims in Nigeria increased sharply in 2020. A new report by The International Society for Civil Liberties & the Rule of Law (Intersociety) states that approximately 2,200 Nigerian Christians have been killed so far in 2020 by Fulani militants and Boko Haram (two Muslim groups) throughout the country.
Over the last 20 years an estimated 55,000 to 75,000 Christians have been murdered in Nigeria because of their faith, according to several human rights groups, including Intersociety, the Armed Conflict Location and Event Data Project (ACLED), and International Christian Concern (ICC). Another 2 million have been displaced from their homes. Countless others have been injured.
The Nigerian government has made little serious effort to address the ongoing genocide of Christians. Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari is a Muslim who has expressed support in the past for the "total implementation of Sharia Law" in Nigeria, despite the country's population being almost evenly divided between Christians and Muslims.
Ad: The History of Jihad: From Muhammad to ISIS, by Robert Spencer - It is taken for granted, even among many Washington policymakers, that Islam is a fundamentally peaceful religion and that Islamic jihad terrorism is something relatively new, a product of the economic and political ferment of the twentieth century. But in The History of Jihad: From Muhammad to ISIS, Islamic scholar Robert Spencer proves definitively that Islamic terror is as old as Islam itself, as old as Muhammad, the prophet of Islam, who said “I have been made victorious through terror.”
Spencer briskly traces the 1,400-year war of Islamic jihadis against the rest of the world, detailing the jihad against Europe, including the 700-year struggle to conquer Constantinople; the jihad in Spain, where non-Muslims fought for another 700 years to get the jihadi invaders out of the country; and the jihad against India, where Muslim warriors and conquerors wrought unparalleled and unfathomable devastation in the name of their religion.
