Boko Haram Threatens To Sell 300 Kidnapped Girls

From the Associated Press:

Nigeria: Boko Haram threatens to sell kidnap [sic] girls

By MICHELLE FAUL | May 5, 2014

LAGOS, Nigeria (AP) — Nigeria’s Islamic extremist leader is threatening to sell the more than 300 teenage schoolgirls abducted from a school in the remote northeast three weeks ago, in a new videotape received Monday.

Abubakar Shekau… threatens to attack more schools and abduct more girls "I abducted your girls," said the leader of Boko Haram, which means "Western education is sinful."

Funny, that’s pretty much what the left in this country says, too.

He described the girls as "slaves" and said "By Allah, I will sell them in the marketplace." …

Anyway, who knew that there was still slavery going on? Or that Muslims still practice it? Certainly not anyone educated in the US in the last thirty years.

It was unclear if the video was made before or after reports emerged last week that some of the girls have been forced to marry their abductors — who paid a nominal bride price of $12 — and that others have been carried into neighboring Cameroon and Chad. Those reports could not be verified.

In the video, Shekau also says the students "will remain slaves with us." That appears a reference to the ancient jihadi custom of enslaving women captured in a holy war, who then can be used as sex slaves…

What a shocking admission from the AP. (Hopefully an editor will remove it quickly.)

An intermediary who has said Boko Haram is ready to negotiate ransoms for the girls also said two of the girls have died of snakebite and about 20 are ill. He said Christians among the girls have been forced to convert to Islam. The man, an Islamic scholar, spoke on condition of anonymity because his position is sensitive…

"Islamic scholars" know the darndest people.

Nigeria’s police have said more than 300 girls were abducted. Of that number, 276 remain in captivity and 53 escaped…

The mass abduction and the military’s failure to rescue the girls and young women has roused national outrage with protests in major cities. Protesters accused President Goodluck [sic] Jonathan of being insensitive to the girl’s plight.

First lady Patience [sic] Jonathan fueled anger Monday when a leader of a protest march said she ordered the arrests of two protest leaders, expressed doubts there was any kidnapping and accused the protest leaders of belonging to Boko Haram… It was unclear what authority Mrs. Jonathan would have to give such orders, since there is no office of first lady in the Nigerian constitution…

Maybe Patience was inspired by First Lady Michelle. (Or First Lady Hillary.)

    If I am not mistaken, with the exception of Europe and North America & Australia/New Zealand, slavery is practiced worldwide. Even in Japan.

    It’s certainly in China, South America, Mexico, Haiti (Oh is it ever in Haiti), certain parts of the Russian continent, India, Malaysia, etc., etc.

    In fact, the trade has grown, not diminished over the last 100 years.

    Isn’t it interesting that Holder, Jackson, Sharp-tongue, et al don’t really see it? Because only white, Christian males in the U.S. can ever be guilty of it.

    Well, got a news-flash for ya guys—-

    The number one race that enslaves others of the same race? Negroes.

    Yup, get used to it, Al, Jesse, Eric. It’s true.

    Now go suck an egg.

    • Right of the People

      Some needs to tell the rancid reverends that back in the 1700s that’s who ran the slave trade over in Africa.

      Obama is do his damnest to revive the slave trade here in the good old US of A by turning all of us into slaves to the gubmint.
