Not buying what you’re selling.
The leader of an Islamist militant group which has abducted hundreds of Nigerian schoolgirls today vowed to sell them as sex slaves despite international outrage at the kidnappings. Abubakar Shekau, the head of Nigerian extremists Boko Haram, said he would ‘sell on the market’ more than 270 girls captured by his fighters last month.
The group – whose name means ‘western education is forbidden’ – snatched the children during a raid in the village of Chibok in northeast Nigeria last month, the French news agency AFP reported, citing a video it had obtained. In the video, Shekau declares: ‘I abducted your girls. I will sell them in the market, by Allah.’
Remember this the next time some senseless politician (think Bush 43) says that Islam is a religion of peace. I’m not buying it…any of it.
