Those devils! I read this story last night.
Sad! May God protect protect the Christians in Africa.

The real devils are those funding this massive enterprise. Billions are involved and where is that money coming from. It is coming from the oil barons of the Middle East. And so far not much has been done to identify these sources.

The media downplays Islamic terrorism by claiming that these groups are competing against each other. But notice in the picture they are marching with the ISIS flag. And Boko Haram also said they are one with ISIS. These Sunni Islamist groups have different names around the world, but they are all united.

I have never seen soldiers wear sandals before. If they have so much money why can’t they afford proper footwear for a soldier?

They get a lot of their money from the oil they own and sell.

The Keystone pipeline would reduce the US dependence on Islamic terrorist oil.

** Kenya bus attack: Military ‘kills 100 Shabab militants’ **

*The driver of the bus tried to accelerate away from the militants, but the vehicle got stuck in wet mud *

“I can assure you that those behind the attack did not even take their supper,” he was quoted as saying by the Standard newspaper.

“They were killed by our officers who we sent out immediately after the attack. They did not find time to celebrate their heinous crime.”

Pray for the people of Kenya, they have attacked Christian Churches including Catholic Churches.

There is a stark contrast between Catholicism and Sunni Islam. Catholics have the daily Mass. But Sunni Islam fundamentalists have daily murder sprees.


#12

I get really depressed reading stories like this over and over.
Terrible atrocities! Makes me feel unsafe even though I live far from where these attacks and killings happen.


#13

These terrorist organizations make it extremely difficult to keep hating the sin separate from hating the sinner.


#14

That’s not the ISIS flag. That would be a flag that ISIS and other Sunni Islamic extremist groups have/do use. Look up the “Black Banner”/“Black Standard”. The words, coloration, and symbol come from/linked to Muhammad.


#15

My advice would be to focus on why and for Whom you are trying not to hate the sinner. It’s still a task not to hate or want to hate the sinner (especially given what some of their sins are), but it does help.
