Unknown gunmen suspected to be Boko Haram militants have killed nine female workers involved in polio vaccinations in two separate incidents in the city of Kano.

The gunmen riding on tricycles opened fire on health workers at Hotoro Haye and Shargalle Health Centre in the Kano metropolis as the health workers prepare their polio vaccination cocktails for the day.

Two women were felled by the militants bullets at Unguwa Uku while seven others died from the lethal attack on Shargalle Health Centre in attacks that took place thirty minutes apart.

Police spokesperson Musa Majia confirmed the attacks to journalists stating that the gunmen had fled the scene of the attack before security agents could reach the area.

Several Islamic clerics are opposed to polio vaccination claiming that it was a western scheme to limit Muslim population in Nigeria.

Polio is spread mainly through poor hygiene and sanitation, problems in much of the developing world. Here, health workers vaccinate children in a Nigerian village.

terrorism knows no religion? yes it does-Islam.

Islam had nothing to do with learning. Islam came from a Bedouin pagan land that delved in malicious raids against each other. Muslims never cared about scholarship. those so called muslim libraries are nothing but myths. After the defeat of Persia at Al qadisya, Omar ordered the destruction of libraries and scientific papers. Entire cities wiped out. After the conquests, there was a civilizational collapse and regions that were once brilliant and progressive fell into a dark age that was brought on by ISLAM. Stop defending a religion/ideology that has brought nothing but pain in the world. you can talk about Hitler all you want but nothing compares to what the muslims have done and still do to this very day.

i stumbled on your debate and wish to know the author of the Qur'an Mr Kenneth quoted the above chapter 2 and 60 verse from. all the versions of English rendering of the Qur'an to the best of my knowledge in the chapter, talked about the brotherhood of Muslims, Christians and Jews who truly believe and serve one god and the punishment that was inflicted by god on those who did not do god's will. furthermore the word Mohammedan is an archaic and wrong proxy to Islam and Muslims. i have Christians and Muslims in my family and we live in harmony without letting misquoting of the Scriptures or political ideologies disrupt are happiness_regards

@'RE: TERRORISM KNOWS NO RELIGION' BY ANONYMOUS 3

Your experiences with SR are just as agonizing as mine. Quite often they edit my comments and render them completely different from what I had in mind. At other times they refuse to post at all.
The quran may not have explicitly called the Jews the descendants of apes. But it does so by necessary implication. That is why the muslim regards the Jew as the vilest of creatures. The Saudi ambassador to the Netherlands once told the Dutch Foreign Minster that no visa would be issued to any Jewish journalist who would accompany him on a visit to Saudi Arabia. The visit was promptly cancelled. Ahmadinejad has consistently campaigned for the destruction of Israel and the Jews, including those who do not live in Israel and are nationals of other countries. Islam undeniably generates a pathological hatred for the Jews.
As you have posted your last comment on this, I will also stop here except something stirs it up. I respect you and hope we meet again. Regards.

@'RE: TERRORISM KNOWS NO RELIGION' BY ANONYMOUS 2

I quoted from the Arberry version of the quran and after double checking, the quotation is found in sura 2:60. I have made no mistake. However, the 2nd version, edited by Dr. Mahmud Y. Yazid, is as you have stated. It depends on which version one uses. There are numerous verses which contradict quran 2:62. If you really believe what it says, why don't you protest the decision by Saudi Arabia not to allow churches in the islamic kingdom? Mere holding the Bible is a crime which carries prison term. Not far from us is Kano city where the situation closely resembles that of Saudi.Muslims who believe in sura 2:62, should condemn the Saudis for not adhering to the teachings of the quran.
Hitler said in Mein Kampf:" NATIONAL SOCIALISM IS A RELIGION, BORN OUT OF RACE AND BLOOD, NOT A POLITICAL WORLD VIEW-THE RELIGIONS STILL EXISTING MUST DISAPPEAR AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. IF THEY DO NOT DISSOLVE THEMSELVES THE STATE HAS TO DESTROY THEM".Was that Christian?

@'RE: TERRORISM KNOWS NO RELIGION' BY ANONYMOUS 1

Islam holds that at birth everybody is innocent until he/she comes in contact with the environment. Ipso facto, no muhammadan is evil until he is in contact with islam. That is why converts to islam commit unimaginable havoc whereas those who leave the religion abhor violence. I am not stubborn but I base my argument on solid facts.The numerals you mentioned are called 'arabic' for unclear reasons. '0'(zero) and the decimal point were invented by the Hindus and came to Arabia after the conquest of India. I have seen the numerals used in the sub-titles on Arabic stations and they hardly resemble we write. Whatever contribution to learning attributed to the Arabs had its origin in some conquered territory being the aspect of the culture which was not destroyed. That was why those who brought such innovations called heretics. Even the sufics suffered persecution.Not many will agree that islam left any profitable legacy for posterity. It is associated more with plundering and destruction.

Re: Terrorism Knows No religion - Last Comment

One is utterly frustrated at the delay with which SR publish postings and there failure to publish many. The sequence is completely messed up, and the logic of discussion totally upset. In spite of myself, i feel compelled to correct this: Pls check again. You got Quran 2:60 completely wrong. You really meant 2:65 But then you completely misinterpreted it. Haba! You sound very educated to me. Surely you understand the meaning of "don't transgress" and "those that transgress" The Quran definitely did not say Jews are descendants of Apes
My dear Kenneth, I have a very strong feeling that something must have happened, that has filled you with so much venom. My advise, - let it go.
I am appalled at your allegation that friendship means nothing to "muhammedans"
I am also surprised that you chose to ignore Quran 2:62, which is so close to 2:60 that you misquoted.

Re: Terrorism Knows No religion - Last Comment

Pls note, those that contributed to the revival of organized learning were mainly Arabs, but Persians (present day Iranians) were known to have made reasonable progress in learning at the time. The Chinese and Indians had there own parallel development. A lot of people are not aware that 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,0 were developed by the Arabs. The Arabs invented "0", which revolutionalized mathematics.
Hitler was a CHRISTIAN. He did not close churches as Communists did. He definitely had psychological issues, but he remained a Christian till his death.
One is rather frustrated by the limitation imposed on the number of characters per post.
I must confess that exchanges with you have been very educative. I commend your politeness. Even the fellow that hurled insults at me, provided links which proved quite amusing. oshone.saliu@gmail.com

Re: Terrorism Knows No religion

I am greatly impressed by your knowledge of history. I never said Islam brought learning into existence! The prelude to organised learning may be credited to the Babylonians and ancient Egyptians, and latter to the Greeks. The Romans were not particularly interested in the study of nature. They were more interested in conquest. I wish not to offend any sensibilities, therefore I withhold my comment on the role of the religion of Europe around that time. The stagnation continued until Islam emerged, and Islamic scholars found very rich Greek writings about astronomy, astrology, mathematics, medicine, alchemy, etc. They immediately translated them to Arabic, and continued to advance them . Up till this day, only the Arabic translations of some of such early Greek writings exist. You have stubbornly refused to accept that people should be held responsible for their actions, and not blame any cover.

@'RE: TERRORISM KNOWS NO RELIGION' BY ANONYMOUS 3

The same statement is repeated in quran 7:165. As those people who transgressed the Sabbath were told to become apes, what are their offspring?
To show how this was put into practice by Muhammad, Abu Dawud 19:2996 says that he told his companions that if they gained a victory over the Jews they should kill them."SO MUHYYISAH JUMPED OVER SHUBAYBAH, A MAN OF JEWISH MERCHANTS. HE HAD CLOSE RELATIONS WITH THEM. HE THEN KILLED HIM". Obviously, friendship means nothing to the muhammadan bcos Allah says so. In Bukhari 4:52:73 ALLAH'S APOSTLE SAID:'KNOW THAT PARADISE IS UNDER THE SHADOW OF SWORDS'-" Modern day islamists have embraced this without hindrance. On March 25, 2008,Sheik Al-Lehadan, Head of the Supreme Judiciary of S. Arabia told the Al Watan Daily:"-AFTER GETTIG RID OF THE JEWS IN ARABLAND,WE MUST TURN TO THE CHRISTIANS.THEY HAVE 3 OPTION:-CONVERT TO ISLAM, OR LEAVE, OR PAY THE JIZIA". From the foregoing and more, religion is the bedrock of islamists actions. Know that my friend.

@'RE: TERRORISM KNOWS NO RELIGION' BY ANONYMOUS 2

As a result of the sanctuary given muslims by the Negus, they make up at least 30% of the Ethiopian population and are responsible for all the havoc in that country and beyond. What did the Negus' kind gesture avail the Ethiopians or himself? BH are not ignoramuses. Ibrahim Saad calls their late leader, 'sheik' on this blog and Ibrahim is far from being ignorant. To muslims, things must be done their own way. That is why they have islamic medicine(whatever it means).Bh killed those workers bcos they did not practice 'islamic medicine'.
Muhammadanism stands on the trilogy of the quran, hadith and sira. They compliment and supplement each other. Anything found in any of them has to be followed by the muslim. The Jews observe the Sabbath. In quran 4:50 Allah says:"-AND WE CURSED THE SABBATH-MEN-". Quran 4:150"-TRANSGRESS NOT THE SABBATH. Quran 2:60 "-AND WELL YUO KNOW THERE WERE THOSE AMONG YOU THAT TRANSGRESSED THE SABBATH, AND WE SAID TO THEM 'BE YOU APES'-".

Since SR has refused to attend to my protest for not posting my earlier replies, I have decided to post them again. Any repetition is the fault of SR. The reader should hold them accountable.
BH is acting on behalf of islam.They are not isolated in their modus or objectives. Bombing of churches is a small matter to the muhammadan. Sometime last year the highest cleric in Bahrain said that anybody who regards a church as a place of worship is not a muslim. Churches are being destroyed daily in Egypt. Muslims do not protest the action of their Egyptian brothers. Muhammad did receive the deputation from Najran who defeated him in the argument on the Holy Trinity based on his own 'revelation'. Shortly after, he sent Khalid ibn Walid with a dawa giving Najran a 3 day ultimatum to convert or face the sword. The Negus of Abyssinia was stupid enough to accommodate the 'persecuted' muslims. Muhammad would later ask him to convert or face the consequence.

@'RE: TERRORISM KNOWS NO RELIGION' BY ANONYMOUS

You said that history of science has credited islam with the revival of organized learning. For anything to be revived it means that it must have first existed. Islam, according to you, only helped in the revival. It never brought into existence. But it has to be said that those who made some contributions were regarded as heretics and they came from cultures which had valued learning b4 the advent of islam. These were mostly Persians and Indians whose forbears were great thinkers. They did not contribute just as muslims but as people with a pedigree of learning. In our era,the first 2 muslim Nobel laureates in science are regarded as infidels bcos one is an Ahmadiyya while the other lives in S. America. The first muslim Nobel laureate in literature had his books banned in muslim countries and was stabbed at a very old age for blasphemy. Boko haram are only following in the footsteps set by the islamic prophet as can be found in the trilogy of quran, sira and hadith.

@'RE: TERRORISM KNOWS NO RELIGION' BY ANONYMOUS

When was the last time Hitler attended Church? Under him schools were forced to replace crucifixes with his pictures. Prayers in schools were offered to Hitler and no more to God. Would anybody try that in muhammadanism and have his head on his neck? Rashad Khalifa called himself the next messenger and was killed in Tucson, Arizona for it. Hitler had no reason to hide his love for islam and its 'prophet'. On 21 April, 1944, he told Amin Husseini: "I AM HAPPY THAT YOU ARE WITH US NOW AND YOU ARE IN A POSITION TO ADD YOUR STRENGTH TO THE COMMON CAUSE". Himmler, the next most powerful Nazi leader added that the islamic world view was very "MUCH LIKE OUR OWN". Hitler lamented the muslim defeat in Europe which he saw as having denied Germany her leadership position in the continent. Was he really a Christian?
Islam stands on a tripod of quran, hadith and sira. One compliments and supplements the other.The Jews are sabbatharians. SEE THE NEXT POST.

Re: Terrorism Knows No religion

Don't deny that Hitler was a CHRISTIAN. He was known to attend church services. If he so admired Islam, he didnt have any reason to hide it. Please show me where the quran refereed to Jews as "descendants of apes and pigs" and the statement that paradise is under the shade of swords.
I do not intend to defend the acts of anyone. But I insist that we should remove religious tag from the acts of individuals or groups, and hold them responsible for their actions or in-actions, even if such groups make efforts to use religion as a convenient cover for their obnoxious acts, as unfortunately is the case with many Muslim groups. Talking about Boko Haram and their atrocities, go and read the history of science, and you will find the role of Islam in the revival of organised learning, which had stagnated in Europe during the dark ages. Hence Islam was called the religion of the learned. And now we have a group that is opposed to learning (in the name of Islam!!!!) Na wa.

Re: Terrorism Knows No religion

By bringing in Boko Haram, you 'spoil matter patapata'. Pls recall that this discussion ensued from the despicable act of those that gunned down 9 health workers, whose perceived offense is that they tried to vaccinate children, in order to give them a better quality of life. How can you be surprised that such stupid statements are coming from such a group. The fundamental issue is that they are not acting on behalf of Islam. A group that bombs churches, and kills people during their worship? During the time of Muhammad, he received a Christian delegation in the mosque. Then it was time for worship by the delegation, and he (Muhammad) ordered that the mosque be vacated to allow the visitors carry out their worship. Islamic History also tells us that when the Meccans tried to wipe out the early Muslims, it was the Christian ruler of Negus (Abyssinia) that gave sanctuary to the Muslims. You are looking at a group of ignoramuses that call themselves BH.

@'RE: TERRORISM KNOWS NO RELIGION' BY ANONYMOUS

"-DID KHOMEINI KILL THE PEOPLE BECAUSE THEY WERE NON MUSLIMS,-". Why does this surprise you? The head of Boko Haram says his duty is to rid Nigeria of non muslims and that killing a kafir was nothing to him. It is like killing a chicken or ram. No feelings at all. Khomeini said the same thing. He called such killing a favour to the victim. Tabari wrote that killing infidels was a small matter for the muhammadan. Those bh wants to kill like chicken, what offence have they committed? Hitler was much more at home with islam than he was with Christianity which he called 'MEEK AND FLABBY'. He saw islam as the religion that opened the gate of the 7th heaven to the warrior. All of Hitler's methods of mass extermination were copied from Ottoman Turkey. He openly admired islam and Muhammad. The quran calls the Jews "descendants of apes and pigs". Muslims are to eat their food? WOW! "THERE IS NO COMPULSION IN RELIGION" yet paradise is under the shade of swords.

On 5 April, 1977 Adam Malik, then foreign minister of Indonesia told the Sydney Times that during the first two years of Indonesian occupation of East Timor between "50,000 and 80,000 people were killed" in that unfortunate half island. By the time Indonesia left 1/3 of the population had been eliminated. No muslim country condemned that heinous atrocity. The reason was that the E. Timorese were different being unbelievers. There has to be proof of someone making an effort to twist facts or misrepresenting them. Such unfounded accusation will not stop the facts from being presented. The decimation of Muhammad's family shows how islam thrives on violence right from its inception. It shows that the purpose of the muhammadan belief is to get its adherents to paradise by eliminating others and sending them to hell. There are many who believe that one has a right to be different and whatever he does should be left for the creator to judge.Our duty is to love all.

@'RE:TERRORISM KNOWS NO RELIGION' BY OSHONE

Based on quran 8:55 and similar ones, islam has divided the world in to two: the house of islam and the house of war. Islam is permanently at war with the non muhammadans. Quran 9:29 urges a relentless war on the unbelievers until they accept islam and pay the compulsory tax in total humiliation. I do not know if war to you means handing out candy bars to the enemy. It means death and destruction. That was the fate of the various tribes during Muhammad's time and it has not changed. If the quran calls death to apostates for leaving islam, is it the unbeliever who will be spared? On 7 Feb., 2013 Egyptian clerics issued a fatwa calling for death to secular politicians and justified the rape of female demonstrators at Tahir square calling them prostitutes who had no approved male companies. On the commands attributed to Muhammad I gave you Ishaq and Tabari. In Al-Ahram,April 7, 2006,Ali Gom'a, Grand Mufti of Egypt asked Muslims to kill non believers wherever they found them.

Re: Terrorism Knows No Religion

It is always important to keep to facts, and not try to twist them in order to score points or make someone else feel bad. While I am trying to verify the allegations that Khomeini killed non Muslims and said they were animals, Khomeini is a human being, that had capacity to act on his own behalf, and not on behalf of every Muslim. If indeed such an event happened, did Khomeini kill the people because they were non Muslims, or because they committed offences? Can you say the atrocities committed by Hitler was on behalf of Christians?
The Quran says "there is no compulsion in religion" And it says the food of Christians and Jews is lawful for Muslims. The assertion that Muhammad said two religions cannot coexist in Arabia is very doubtful.
