Jos Crisis: 8 Dead In Latest Violence In Central Nigeria-AP

Dead bodies in Jos
By Associated Press

JOS, Nigeria (AP) — Christian youths attacked a car full of Muslims returning from a wedding in central Nigeria, killing seven people inside the vehicle and sparking retaliatory violence that left one other person dead, an official said Saturday.

It was the latest unrest in a fertile region that saw more than 500 people killed last year in massacres pitting Christians against Muslims.

On Saturday, gunshots echoed through the troubled city of Jos, causing store owners to close their shops and families to hide inside their homes.

The violence began as Christian youths blocked a road leading from a neighboring village Friday night, trapping the Muslims inside their car, said lawyer Ahmed Garba, a member of an Islamic religious council. Garba told journalists Saturday that seven people died in the attack and one person survived.

Garba said once news of the attack spread, Muslims began retaliatory violence in the streets of Jos that has left at least one person dead.

Plateau state police commissioner Abdurrahman Akano said investigators received word of the Friday night attack, but had not found any bodies. That is not uncommon as Muslims traditionally bury their dead as soon as possible.

Manassie Panpe, the Red Cross' state secretary, said officials from the aid organization had found several injured people in the streets Saturday but that information remained scarce.

Nigeria, an oil-rich country of 150 million people, is almost evenly split between Muslims in the north and the predominantly Christian south. Jos is in the nation's "middle belt," where dozens of ethnic groups vie for control of fertile lands.

The Jos violence, though fractured across religious lines, often has more to do with local politics, economics and rights to grazing lands. The government of Plateau state, where Jos is the capital, is controlled by Christian politicians who have blocked Muslims from being legally recognized as citizens. That has locked many out of prized government jobs in a region where the tourism industry and tin mining have collapsed in the last decades.

On Christmas Eve, two bombs went off near a large market in Jos where people were doing last-minute Christmas shopping. A third hit a mainly Christian area of Jos, while the fourth was near a road that leads to the city's main mosque.

Officials initially said at least 32 died from the blasts, while an official with the National Emergency Management Agency told journalists that he had counted 80 deaths from the explosions and the retaliatory violence that followed.

An Internet message attributed to radical Muslim sect known in northern Nigeria as Boko Haram claimed responsibility for the bomb attacks. However, the sect had never carried out an attack in that region before..

bad situation

Lack of indicipline to d northern area of dis country. It is bad, there should be stop 2tru all dis rubbish around d place.

re: 8 death.......latest violence in nothern Nigeria.

Do not deceive yourself, violence is never the attributes of God. Any God that supports violence is not a loving God but a satanic god, a troubled god, a non-caring god, a powerless god and a god who can not his powers among his creation. And any mortal that thinks he is helping his god to fight has clearly purtrayed the weaknesses and inability of the god he serves for incapability.
Judgement on human creation belongs to God
(Romans12:19-21)and Philpians 2:11 that before Jesus Christ, every knee must bow and every thongue must confess that Jesus Christ is the Lord to the glory of the father.
2. you should not also deceive yourself that you are the majority in this country. Anybody that gave you those figures are fake figures. Just use your common sence if at all you have any to design the population between Christians and muslims in Nigeria to see. Let me tell you if Christians will rise to fight muslims in Nigeria today; they will instantly be wiped out of this country. For the fact that they are not trouble makers does not mean that over night you have out number them. Even in Jos, because the God we serve does not support crises, we have been conform to the character of God, it becomes difficult for them to react. But I am telling you if the put reached to the wall, they will be left with no obtion than to retaliate not matter what foreign forces from the terrorist world you think they can support you.
3. There are knowledgeable muslims who truelly want to serve their God and are never supporters of violence. They have good intention for this country, they look at things objectively without being bias, they support any good government and criticise any bad system of rulership that emerges but they are been seen by some as hypocrites. A true religion according to James 1:22-27 that it is a religion that cares for one nother, mentains peace with everybody not only to your co-religion partners. You can't expect every body to be a muslim, if you believe that your God intended every body to be a muslim he should have force all of us to remain muslims. Even Jesus Christ did not force any one to become a muslim but let me tell you if he had wanted it to be he would have made it. Politics should completely be separated from religion, you ignorant an illiterate fellow. If your plight for religion is political then you can not please God.

Jos crises

Its obvious dat jos crises is political and also a planned scenerio. The best 2 resolve plateau state dat is d states shld b shared among other neighbourin state and also dat devil incanate gov jonah jang shld be killed or jailed cuz wit him dat state wil neva b at peace.
Important is dat plateau state shld b resolved or state of emergency that is if d president is ready 2 work.
They all av skeleton in thier cupboards.

My dear brother, the ultimate plan of God is to create a earth where the people living on it exactly looks like Him in Character and nature. God is love, he created us for His good pleasure. He causes His sun to shine on everyone alike, He makes His rain to fall on everyone alike- this is just a sign that He is love in nature.
The old testament failed and thats why the need for new testament arose. You talked about Jesus saying He brought war and not peace, but you never talked about where he rebuked Peter after cutting off the ear of a man "he that takes the sword will die by the sword".)

ARE YOU, SIR, SUGGESTING JESUS IS DISPUTING HIMSELF??! OTHERWISE, WHY THEN DID HE INSTRUCT HIS DISCIPLES TO SELL THEIR GARMENTS AND BUY SWORDS??? AND CAN YOU EQUALLY GIVE FURTHER EXPLANATIONS AND ANALYSIS TO THE WHOLE, NOT JUST ONE, OF THE FOLLOWING:

“I HAVE NOT COME TO BRING PEACE, BUT A SWORD… FIRE… AND DIVISION! (MT 10:34, LK 12:49-53). JESUS SAID: "AND HE THAT HATH NO SWORD, LET HIM SELL HIS GARMENT, AND BUY ONE." (LUKE, 22:36-38). 'GOD' CAME FOR THE JEWS ONLY: "BUT HE ANSWERED AND SAID, I AM NOT SENT BUT UNTO THE LOST SHEEP OF THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL." (MATTHEW, 15:24); RACIAL DISCRIMINATION OF "GOD": "THESE TWELVE JESUS SENT FORTH, AND COMMANDED THEM, SAYING, GO NOT INTO THE WAY OF THE GENTILES, AND INTO ANY CITY OF THE SAMARITANS ENTER YE NOT: BUT GO RATHER TO THE LOST SHEEP OF THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL." (MATTHEW, 10:5-6); ACCORDING TO "GOD", THE GENTILES ARE DOGS: "IT IS NOT MEET TO TAKE THE CHILDREN'S BREAD, AND TO CAST IT TO DOGS." (MATTHEW, 15:26)”

The plan of God

My dear brother, the ultimate plan of God is to create a earth where the people living on it exactly looks like Him in Character and nature. God is love, he created us for His good pleasure. He causes His sun to shine on everyone alike, He makes His rain to fall on everyone alike- this is just a sign that He is love in nature.
The old testament failed and thats why the need for new testament arose. You talked about Jesus saying He brought war and not peace, but you never talked about where he rebuked Peter after cutting off the ear of a man "he that takes the sword will die by the sword".
In Christianity, our warfare is not against flesh and blood, but against the spiritual powers of evil forces.
Concerning the youths claiming to be Christians that killed those innocent muslim brethren- I will say emphatically that they may be Church goers but have not surrendered their lives fully to Jesus.
Finally, note this critically, there is a clear cut difference between Christianity and Judaism, even though, they have the same origin.

RESPONSE TO ‘XTIAN-COMMUNITY ON
S/REPORTERS 13-01-2011

LET ME EXPATIATE TO YOU WHO A BASTARD IS: THE ONE WHOSE ONLY IDENTITY IS TO TAKE 'BURUKUTU' FOR BREAKFAST, 'GOSKOLO' FOR THE REST OF THE DAY AND SOME 'DOG-MEAT' FOR SUPPER, AND IS PROGRAMMED AND BRAIN-WASHED TO WAGE PRE-MEDITATED, UNWARRANTED MURDER-CRUSSADE ON MUSLIMS, THINKING HE IS DOING GOD’S WORK! SOMEONE WHO HAVE TOTALLY LOST ALL SENSE OF PURPOSE!! THAT’S WHO A REAL BASTARD IS!!! THAT IS WHY YOU HAVE THIS PARANOIA ABOUT A MUSLIM DOMINATION AND ISLAMISATION, AND THEREFORE, SEEK TO CONTAIN OR OVERCOME YOUR PERCIEVED 'DOMINATORS' - THROUGH SYSTEMATIC MURDER!!! I AM FROM JOS, AND I WORK AND LIVE HERE. THE FRIDAY 7TH COLD-BLOODED MURDERS OF THE 7 INNOCENT MUSLIMS RETURNING FROM WEDDING WERE JUST A CONTINUATION OF THESEMURDER-CRUSADES. THE STATE GOVERNMENT IN A RADIO INTERVIEW THE NEXT DAY (SATURDAY THE 8TH), DOWN-PLAYED THE INCIDENT AS “A POLITICAL SKIRMISH INVOLVING MEMBERS OF CNC PARTY AND NATIVES”!!! CAN YOU IMAGINE???? WHERE THE HECK DO ONLY 7 PEOPLE, REPEAT – S-E-V-E-N PEOPLE CARRYOUT A POLITICAL RALLY????! EVEN IF IT IS WHAT THE GOVERNMENT SPOKES MAN CLAIMED IS TRUE, DOES A POLITICAL RALLY WARRANT THE MURDER OF THE 7 YOUNG MEN????????? SEQUEL TO THAT INCIDENT WAS THE FREE-FOR-ALL MASSACRES OF MUSLIMS WITHIN JOS METROPOLIS AND PARTICULARLY, IN BUKURU SUB-URB OF JOS, THIS TIME FROM SUNDAY THE 9TH TIL MONDAY THE 10TH IN THE EVENING. THE CRISIS TOOK ANOTHER FRESH DIMENTION WHEN A MISSLE WAS USED!! IT WAS AIMED AT THE BUKURU CENTRAL MOSQUE BUT MISSED ITS TARGET – HITTING A TREE AND PART OF THE BATHROOM OF A NEARBY HOUSE. LATER IN THE EVENING, THE ARMY RE-ENFORCEMENTS DRAFTED IN MANAGED TO OVERPOWER THE RAMPAGING CHRISTIAN-CRUSADER YOUTHS, AND MADE SOME ARRESTS. THE MOST NOTABLE AMONG THE ARRESTED YOUTHS IS AN IGBO MAN, ALLEGED TO BE THE BEROM CRUSADERS’ COMMANDER! AS A RESULT OF HIS CONFESSION, A HUGE WEAPON CASH WAS ARRESTED AND RECOVERED BY THE ARMY. HOWEVER, SINCE THESE ARE NOT CHRISTIANS, NOBODY GETS TO HEAR THESE DEVELOPMENTS. IT IS ALWAYS THE STORY OF “MUSLIMS KILLING CHRISTIANS IN PLATEAU” THAT IS ALWAYS ON THE NEWS, ON EVERY CHANNEL

BUT BY STARK CONTRAST, WE MUSLIMS HAVE EVERYTHING CONTRARY TO THE ABOVE DEMEANORS; WE HAVE MANNERS, SENSE OF PURPOSE, RESPONSIBILITY AND MORALITY – WHICH IS WHY WE PROPER ANYWHERE – BECAUSE WE ARE DIVINELY GUIDED… FOR EXMAPLE, WE, AS MUSLIMS, ARE AMONG OTHER THINGS ENJOINED BY GOD THE ALMIGHTY IN THE QUR’AANIC QUOTATIONS BELLOW, TO ONLY RISE TO DEFEND OURELVES "… FIGHT IN THE WAY OF ALLAH THOSE WHO FIGHT YOU, BUT TRANSGRESS NOT THE LIMITS. TRULY, ALLAH LIKES NOT THE TRANSGRESSORS.”; “AND KILL THEM WHEREVER YOU FIND THEM, AND TURN THEM OUT FROM WHERE THEY HAVE TURNED YOU OUT. AND AL-FITNAH (PERSECUTION) IS WORSE THAN KILLING. AND FIGHT NOT WITH THEM AT AL-MASJID-AL-HARAM (THE SANCTUARY AT MAKKAH), UNLESS THEY (FIRST) FIGHT YOU THERE. BUT IF THEY ATTACK YOU, THEN KILL THEM. SUCH IS THE RECOMPENSE OF THE DISBELIEVERS.”; “BUT IF THEY CEASE, THEN ALLAH IS OFT-FORGIVING, MOST MERCIFUL.” AND “… FIGHT THEM UNTIL THERE IS NO MORE FITNAH (PERSECUTION), AND WORSHIP IS FOR ALLAH (ALONE). BUT IF THEY CEASE, LET THERE BE NO TRANSGRESSION EXCEPT AGAINST AZ-ZALIMUN (WRONG-DOERS).” – HOLY QUR’AAN, CHAPTER 2: 190 – 194." READ THE QUR'AAN, KNOW ISLAM...

ON THE OTHER HAND, YOU RATIONALLY IMPAIRED, INOBJECTIVE, PERVERTED BIGOTS AND MULISH MUNIONS ARE ONLY INSPIRED TO HATE, SEGREGATE AND KILL, BY THE DEVIL (S) THAT BE, WHO AUTHORED THE BIBLE. THE RECORDS ARE THERE TO SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES. FOR EXAMPLE, RELIGIOUS SCHOLAR PHILIP JENKINS STUDIED THE QURAN AND THE BIBLE IN THE LIGHT OF THE SEPTEMBER 11 ATTACKS AND ACCUSATION THAT THE FORMER INCITES VIOLENCE. HE FOUND THAT "THE BIBLE CONTAINS FAR MORE VERSES PRAISING OR URGING BLOODSHED THAN DOES THE QURAN." (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christian_terrorism). SIMILARLY, DR SIR IAN GUTHRIDGE CITED MANY INSTANCES OF GENOCIDE IN THE BIBLE - QUOTE-UN-QUOTE: ' THE BIBLE ALSO CONTAINS THE HORRIFIC ACCOUNT OF WHAT CAN ONLY BE DESCRIBED AS A "BIBLICAL HOLOCAUST". FOR, IN ORDER TO KEEP THE CHOSEN PEOPLE APART FROM AND UNAFFECTED BY THE ALIEN BELIEFS AND PRACTICES OF INDIGENOUS OR NEIGHBOURING PEOPLES, WHEN GOD COMMANDED HIS CHOSEN PEOPLE TO CONQUER THE PROMISED LAND, HE PLACED CITY AFTER CITY 'UNDER THE BAN" -WHICH MEANT THAT EVERY MAN, WOMAN AND CHILD WAS TO BE SLAUGHTERED AT THE POINT OF THE SWORD. 'THUS WE READ IN THE BOOK OF NUMBERS THAT THE JEWS "WAGED THE CAMPAIGN AGAINST MIDIAN, AS YAHWEH HAD ORDERED MOSES, AND THEY PUT EVERY MALE TO DEATH... THE SONS OF ISRAEL TOOK THE MIDIANITE WOMEN CAPTIVE WITH THEIR YOUNG CHILDREN, AND PLUNDERED ALL THEIR CATTLE, ALL THEIR FLOCKS AND ALL THEIR GOODS. THEY SET FIRE TO THE TOWNS WHERE THEY LIVED AND ALL THEIR ENCAMPMENTS... THEN, WHEN THEY TOOK THE CAPTIVES, SPOIL AND BOOTY TO MOSES..., MOSES WAS ENRAGED.... 'WHY HAVE YOU SPARED THE LIFE OF ALL THE WOMEN...? SO KILL ALL THE MALE CHILDREN. KILL ALSO ALL THE WOMEN WHO HAVE SLEPT WITH A MAN. SPARE THE LIVES ONLY OF THE YOUNG GIRLS WHO HAVE NOT SLEPT WITH A MAN, AND TAKE THEM FOR YOURSELVES'. NUM 31:7-19 SIMILARLY IN THE BOOK OF DEUTERONOMY, WHEN THE JEWS ATTACKED SIHON'S AMORITE KINGDOM, "YAHWEH OUR GOD DELIVERED HIM OVER TO US... WE CAPTURED ALL HIS CITIES AND LAID WHOLE TOWNS UNDER BAN, MEN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN; WE SPARED NOTHING BUT THE LIVESTOCK WHICH WE TOOK AS OUR SPOIL".DEUT 2:33-35 LIKEWISE IN THE TRANSJORDANIAN KINGDOM OF OG, KING OF BASHAN: "WE CAPTURED ALL HIS TOWNS AT THAT TIME... SIXTY TOWNS... WE LAID THEM UNDER BAN... - THE WHOLE TOWN, MEN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN, UNDER THE BAN".DEUT 3:4-7. SOMETIMES, THE BAN COULD VARY; FOR IN A LATER CHAPTER OF THE SAME BOOK, WE READ THAT "IF (A TOWN) REFUSES PEACE AND OFFERS RESISTANCE,... YAHWEH YOUR GOD SHALL DELIVER IT UNTO YOUR POWER AND YOU ARE TO PUT ALL ITS MENFOLK TO THE SWORD. BUT THE WOMEN, THE CHILDREN, THE LIVESTOCK AND ALL THAT THE TOWN CONTAINS, ALL ITS SPOIL, YOU MAY TAKE FOR YOURSELVES AS BOOTY".DEUT 20:12-14. IN THE BOOK OF JOSHUA, WE READ ABOUT THE MOST FAMOUS CASE OF ALL - THE FALL OF JERICHO: "THEN YAHWEH SAID TO JOSHUA, 'NOW I AM DELIVERING JERICHO AND ITS KING INTO YOUR HANDS". SO, WHEN "THE WALLS OF JERICHO CAME TUMBLING DOWN", THE JEWISH WARRIORS "ENFORCED THE BAN ON EVERYTHING IN THE TOWN: MEN AND WOMEN, YOUNG AND OLD, EVEN THE OXEN AND SHEEP AND DONKEYS, MASSACRING THEM ALL".JOSHUA 6:21 THE SAME FOR THE PEOPLE OF AI; FOR "YAHWEH SAID TO JOSHUA... "YOU ARE TO DO WITH AI AND ITS KING AS YOU DID WITH JERICHO AND ITS KING..."JOSHUA 8:2 AND "THE NUMBER OF THOSE WHO FELL THAT DAY, MEN AND WOMEN TOGETHER, WAS TWELVE THOUSAND, ALL PEOPLE OF AI ... ALL TO A MAN HAD FALLEN BY THE EDGE OF THE SWORD".JOSHUA 8:24-25 'THE SAME IN SOUTHERN CANAAN, WHICH "YAHWEH GAVE INTO THE POWER OF ISRAEL; AND ISRAEL STRUCK EVERY LIVING CREATURE THERE WITH THE EDGE OF THE SWORD, AND LEFT NONE ALIVE".JOSHUA 10:30 THE SAME AT LACHISH WHERE "NO ONE WAS LEFT ALIVE".JOSHUA 10:33"(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Bible_and_violence, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christianity_and_violence). THIS, INEVITABLY, GAVE BIRTH TO WHAT ACADEMICS AND INTELLECTUALS CALL “CHRISTIAN-TERRORISM” (SEE http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christian_terrorism). IN THE NEW TESTAMENT, WE SEE THE ACCOUNT OF INCITATION OF HOSTILITIES. REMEMBER JESUS’S WARNINGS: I HAVE NOT COME TO BRING PEACE, BUT A SWORD… FIRE… AND DIVISION! (MT 10:34, LK 12:49-53). ?? WHAT ABOUT THESE DIRECT ORDERS HE GAVE HIS DECIPLES: <>.OTHERWISE SOMEONE SHOULD EXPLAIN TO US MUSLIMS, WHAT IDEOLOGY TAUGHT THE LORD'S RESISTANCE ARMY IN UGANDA, TO CARRY OUT THEIR BARBARIC ACTS OF FORCEFUL RECRUITMENT AND ABDUCTION OF CHILDREN INTO THEIR FORCES, RAPING OF WOMEN OF ALL AGES, MAIMING, ROBBERY, ARSON AND BOMBING - AND ALL IN THE NAME OF THE LORD (?)!! YES, AND WHO ALSO TAUGHT HITLER TO SLAUGHTER ABOUT 4 MILLION JEWS? SAME GOES TO THE I.R.A. OF NORTHERN IRELAND, THE FARC OF COLOMBIA, AND SO ON AND SO ON... NOTE THAT ALL THESE ARE FROM CHRISTIAN-MAJORITY COUNTRIES!!

Is there a voice for Peace?

Lets, take a look at the beginning.

When and where it all begin. Is it religious, politics, economic or all? The fact open to hypothesis, and maybe a few people can really put a finger on it.
However, the indisputable truth is that innocent, peace loving and God fearing infants, children, men and women have been killed or are dying.

People who otherwise are good and honest are now caught up in a cycle of violence.

I spent most of my life in Jos. I am Berom and a Christian, but some of my best friends are Hausa/Fulani Muslims.
My friends and family, both Muslims, Christians, Hausa, Berom, Igbo have been killed. I have gained nothing. Those who have killed my friends and family have gained nothing. Events in the past 11 years have created the saddest times for Jos, which used to be a symbol of peaceful co-existence tranquillity.

The only way to stop the killing, is to
"STOP THE KILLING"!
And then forgive, but not forget that nobody wins where blood is shed.

The Berom are naturally, Naive, Peaceful, unambitious, complacent and rather try to avoid confrontation. And so naturally, they are usually taken advantaged of. But we have proved again that violence is not the answer.
However, the world is not a perfect place and we will face challenges that threaten our collective dreams and expectations.

True, "Force can be a deterrence to violence", but only the "Force of Peace". Why? You may wonder that I did not mention "Force of peace and justice"? Because, most of these killings were done by aggrieved people who thought they were "delivering justice". Yes’ they were able to identify the persons who murdered their 3 little children while they slept.
Justice like beauty is relative and susceptible to our various societal values and idiosyncrasies.
A "Force" becomes "Powerful" when it has the mass or masses on it's side.

Is there anyone out there that is willing to stand up for Peace?

IS THERE ANY ONE FOR PEACE?

While you ponder on these, I have to brace and try to comfort the orphans and widows of my Christian, Muslim, Berom, Hausa, Fulani, Igbo and Nigerian deceased friends.

May God help us all.

stupid talk

you idiots better knw that we wont fold our arms and be killed continually and call it political fight,if its politics y not burn political offices.why churches and xtians.God ll punish those bastards,and wtch it they will likewise lose their goat heads that dont reason,because we ll cut them off 2,and use it as football on the streets of Jos.Bastards!

SECOND RESPONSE TO JACK, ‘THE DONKEY’, ON S/REPORTERS
12-01-2011

JACK, THE DONKEY: LOL…!!! I CAN SEE YOU'RE SO PISSED-OFF BY THE REVELATIONS ABOUT YOUR SUPPOSEDLY 'PEACEFUL' RELIGION, AND YOUR FAITH CLEARLY SHAKEN – AND THAT’S WHY YOU’RE YELLING “LIES, LIES, LIES…”!!!

FIRST, IF YOU SAY I AM LYING, THEN, OBVIOUSLY, YOUR ‘HOLY’ BOOK IS LYING, SINCE ALL OF MY FACTS ARE DRAWN FROM THE BIBLE!!!! JUST OPEN YOUR ‘HOLY’ BOOK, READ THE QUOTED VERSES, SEE FOR YOURSELF. AS I SAID EARLIER, THE RECORDS ARE THERE TO SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES. BUT SINCE, EVIDENTLY, YOU (LIKE THE MULTITUDES OF YOUR FELLOWS) PREFER TO BE TOLD THAN LEARN AND UNDERSTAND YOURSELF, LET ME HELP YOU WITH ONLINE WEBSITE LINKS TO AID YOU: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Bible_and_violence, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christianity_and_violence, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christian_terrorism, http://www.infidels.org/library/modern/donald_morgan/.

SECONDLY, SINCE YOU NOT DEBATING TO REASON BUT ONLY ‘MOUTHING-OFF’, AND ARGUING BLINDLY WITHOUT PRESENTING ANY SINGLE FACT OR REFERENCE, LET ME CORRECT YOUR IRRATIONAL, IGNORANT, IMMORAL, PREJUDICED AND PERVERTED MISCONCEPTION THAT ‘MUSLIMS ALWAYS STRIKE FIRST…’ AGAIN, I REFER YOUR MUCUS-OF-A-BRAIN BACK TO MY EARLIER NOTES/COMMENTS ON THE JOS/PLATEAU SECTARIANISM WITH THE FOLLOWING LINKS: http://www.thenigerianvoice.com/nvnews/12087/1/why-crisis-persists-in-pl..., http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yelwa_massacre, http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2004/may/08/2, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2008_Jos_riots, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2008_Jos_riots, http://media.causes.com:80/714712, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2010_Jos_riots.
ADDTIONALLY, I REFER YOU TO EARLIER QUOTED QUR’AANIC REFERENCES, WHERE GOD ALMIGHTY ENJOINS MUSLIMS TO LAWFULLY FIGHT – ONLY FOR SELF-DEFENCE: <<" FIGHT IN THE WAY OF ALLAH THOSE WHO FIGHT YOU (FIRST), BUT TRANSGRESS NOT THE LIMITS.

THIRDLY, IF YOU ARE AMONG THOSE MULLISH, MINION MORONS THAT ARE ALWAYS TOLD “CHRISTIANS ARE THE MAJORITY IN NIGERIA…” AND YOU KEEP BELIEVING THAT TRASH, UNFORTUNATELY, THEN AGAIN, YOU ARE ONLY LIVING A FANTASY WORLD; A WORLD OF DELUSIONS, AND A WORLD OF HALLUCINATIONS!!

FINALLY, YOU SEE, I'VE HAD ENCOUNTERS WITH YOUR TYPES BEFORE, AND I STILL DO. YOUR REACTION/RESPONSE IS NO DIFFERENT FROM ALL MY PEVIOUS ENCOUNTERS. YOU SEE, THERE ARE ONLY TWO THINGS YOU CAN DO: 1. ACCEPT THE SIMPLE TRUTH – BASED ON THE HARD-FACTS PRESENTED, OR JUST KEEP RUNNING MAD, AND WHINING, AND YELLING, LIKE THE MORON-DONKEY THAT YOU ALL ARE!

PEACE AMBASSADOR...

Dear 'Peace Ambassador' (may it not just be a 'user-name only...). I think for the first time in days following this publication, I've found someone who's talking with some sense of reasoning...

First, it is grossly unfair to dismiss my note with the wave of a hand, as you are attempting to, since what it contain are hard-facts that not even you can refute, SINCE THEY ARE DERIVED MOSTLY FROM YOUR OWN HOLY BOOK.

Secondly, since we are talking about the core issue(s) of TERRORISM, EXTREMISIM and ANTI-SOCIALISM in general, as it affects all societies, obviously ANYONE with any sense of RATIONALISM, OBJECTIVISM, IMPARTIALISM; anyone who is UNBIASED, SELFLESS AND UNPREJUDICED, having gone through my notes would AMONG OTHER THINGS, deduce that ISLAM and MUSLIMS, particularly in Nigeria, aren't the only community and are not the first for that matter, to suffer these vices (TERRORISM, EXTREMISIM and ANTI-SOCIALISM). SO, WHY MAKE FISH OF ISLAM/MUSLIMS ONLY??? The kind of hate and paranoia we are seeing from most christians (in Jos and Plateau State in particular, here refers). It wasn't initiated by Muslims; it comes just from the feeling that 'Hausa/Fulanis' are dominating them!! (Please read back my note on this).

Consequently, it is UNFAIR, and a GROSS-INJUSTICE to give us all (Muslims) a BLANKET-PUNISHMENT for the action of a few, just because you (christians) want to favour your side! Many Christian commentators here are so outraged at Sahara-Reporters simply because it is (for the first time, probably), reporting a demonic action carried out by Christians, and that in itself, is unfair and a gross injustice! We should all endeavour to look-inwards just occasionally, as instructed by Jesus himself, when the Pharisees and Rabbis wanted a prostitute stoned... Only then we would be able to identify the real enemy (http://khakithoughts.blogspot.com/).

Similarly, it is another misconception to declare all Muslims 'intolerant', as you and many other commentators are doing, as Allah Himself, has enjoined us (Muslims) to call/invite others for a mutual/consensual understanding/debate: "Say (O Muhammad SAW): 'O people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians): Come to a word that is just between us and you, that we worship none but Allah, and that we associate no partners with Him, and that none of us shall take others as lords besides Allah.' Then, if they turn away, say: 'Bear witness that we are Muslims.' "(Holy Qur'aan, 3:64)

Finally, I appeal to you in particular, as a man of conscience, and all others to try to SEPARATE HUMAN-INDIVIDUAL BEHAVIOUR from our RELIGIOUS SPIRITUAL INJUNCTIONS; These are two, distincly different matters, as many at times people DON'T NECESSARILY PRACTICE WHAT THEIR RELIGIOUS TEACHINGS ENJOIN THEM TO… May we continually be guided on to righteousness, ameen.

Why are muslims big liars

You can not fool the world any longer that you know.islam is nothing but violent and lies. you know how your master took over maker, you always come around confessing peace but strikes immediately your peace massage is accepted to take over. liars! liars!! liars!!! everybody knows that muslims always strike first in Jos & then the fake force men comes in when a counter strike is on the verge of being initiated. know it that your last prayer is being answered but in the opposite Amen! Liars like you will end up soon. Note that muslims are not the majority-land mass does not dictate majority.you had this country for 38 years and today, you idiots are complaining-a bunch of power and blood thirst sect in the name of religion that wastes life like is nothing. God will surely Judge you all-the world knows no peace just because of Islam.

Who is a Terrorist?

"British journalist and politician Ian Gilmour has cited the historical case of the St. Bartholomew's Day massacre in 1572, a beginning of Roman Catholic mob violence directed against the Huguenots (French Calvinist Protestants), as an instance of religious terrorism on par with modern day terrorism, and goes on to write, "That massacre, said Pope Gregory XIII, gave him more pleasure than fifty Battles of Lepanto, and he commissioned Vasari to paint frescoes of it in the Vatican".[2] It is estimated that 2,000 to possibly 25,000 Huguenots (French Protestants) were killed by Catholic mobs, and it has been called "the worst of the century's religious massacres". The massacre led to the start of the "fourth war" of the French Wars of Religion, which was marked by many other massacres and assassinations by both sides. Peter Steinfels has cited the historical case of the Gunpowder Plot, when Guy Fawkes and other Catholic revolutionaries attempted to overthrow the Protestant establishment of England by blowing up the Houses of Parliament, as a notable case of religious terrorism.[3]

Religious scholar Philip Jenkins studied the Quran and the Bible in the light of the September 11 attacks and accusation that the former incites violence. He found that "the Bible contains far more verses praising or urging bloodshed than does the Quran."[4]" Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christian_terrorism)

REALLY?? WELL, DOG, LET ME SHOW YOU, AND ALL OTHER RATIONALLY IMPAIRED, INOBJECTIVE AND PERVERTED BIGOTS, WHO ARE REAL TERRORIST, AND ITS ORIGINATORS: THE BIBLE - AND ITS FOLLOWERS!! THE RECORDS ARE THERE TO SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES. DR SIR IAN GUTHRIDGE CITED MANY INSTANCES OF GENOCIDE IN THE BIBLE - QUOTE-UN-QUOTE: ' THE BIBLE ALSO CONTAINS THE HORRIFIC ACCOUNT OF WHAT CAN ONLY BE DESCRIBED AS A "BIBLICAL HOLOCAUST". FOR, IN ORDER TO KEEP THE CHOSEN PEOPLE APART FROM AND UNAFFECTED BY THE ALIEN BELIEFS AND PRACTICES OF INDIGENOUS OR NEIGHBOURING PEOPLES, WHEN GOD COMMANDED HIS CHOSEN PEOPLE TO CONQUER THE PROMISED LAND, HE PLACED CITY AFTER CITY 'UNDER THE BAN" -WHICH MEANT THAT EVERY MAN, WOMAN AND CHILD WAS TO BE SLAUGHTERED AT THE POINT OF THE SWORD. 'THUS WE READ IN THE BOOK OF NUMBERS THAT THE JEWS "WAGED THE CAMPAIGN AGAINST MIDIAN, AS YAHWEH HAD ORDERED MOSES, AND THEY PUT EVERY MALE TO DEATH... THE SONS OF ISRAEL TOOK THE MIDIANITE WOMEN CAPTIVE WITH THEIR YOUNG CHILDREN, AND PLUNDERED ALL THEIR CATTLE, ALL THEIR FLOCKS AND ALL THEIR GOODS. THEY SET FIRE TO THE TOWNS WHERE THEY LIVED AND ALL THEIR ENCAMPMENTS... THEN, WHEN THEY TOOK THE CAPTIVES, SPOIL AND BOOTY TO MOSES..., MOSES WAS ENRAGED.... 'WHY HAVE YOU SPARED THE LIFE OF ALL THE WOMEN...? SO KILL ALL THE MALE CHILDREN. KILL ALSO ALL THE WOMEN WHO HAVE SLEPT WITH A MAN. SPARE THE LIVES ONLY OF THE YOUNG GIRLS WHO HAVE NOT SLEPT WITH A MAN, AND TAKE THEM FOR YOURSELVES'. NUM 31:7-19 SIMILARLY IN THE BOOK OF DEUTERONOMY, WHEN THE JEWS ATTACKED SIHON'S AMORITE KINGDOM, "YAHWEH OUR GOD DELIVERED HIM OVER TO US... WE CAPTURED ALL HIS CITIES AND LAID WHOLE TOWNS UNDER BAN, MEN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN; WE SPARED NOTHING BUT THE LIVESTOCK WHICH WE TOOK AS OUR SPOIL".DEUT 2:33-35 LIKEWISE IN THE TRANSJORDANIAN KINGDOM OF OG, KING OF BASHAN: "WE CAPTURED ALL HIS TOWNS AT THAT TIME... SIXTY TOWNS... WE LAID THEM UNDER BAN... - THE WHOLE TOWN, MEN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN, UNDER THE BAN".DEUT 3:4-7. SOMETIMES, THE BAN COULD VARY; FOR IN A LATER CHAPTER OF THE SAME BOOK, WE READ THAT "IF (A TOWN) REFUSES PEACE AND OFFERS RESISTANCE,... YAHWEH YOUR GOD SHALL DELIVER IT UNTO YOUR POWER AND YOU ARE TO PUT ALL ITS MENFOLK TO THE SWORD. BUT THE WOMEN, THE CHILDREN, THE LIVESTOCK AND ALL THAT THE TOWN CONTAINS, ALL ITS SPOIL, YOU MAY TAKE FOR YOURSELVES AS BOOTY".DEUT 20:12-14. IN THE BOOK OF JOSHUA, WE READ ABOUT THE MOST FAMOUS CASE OF ALL - THE FALL OF JERICHO: "THEN YAHWEH SAID TO JOSHUA, 'NOW I AM DELIVERING JERICHO AND ITS KING INTO YOUR HANDS". SO, WHEN "THE WALLS OF JERICHO CAME TUMBLING DOWN", THE JEWISH WARRIORS "ENFORCED THE BAN ON EVERYTHING IN THE TOWN: MEN AND WOMEN, YOUNG AND OLD, EVEN THE OXEN AND SHEEP AND DONKEYS, MASSACRING THEM ALL".JOSHUA 6:21 THE SAME FOR THE PEOPLE OF AI; FOR "YAHWEH SAID TO JOSHUA... "YOU ARE TO DO WITH AI AND ITS KING AS YOU DID WITH JERICHO AND ITS KING..."JOSHUA 8:2 AND "THE NUMBER OF THOSE WHO FELL THAT DAY, MEN AND WOMEN TOGETHER, WAS TWELVE THOUSAND, ALL PEOPLE OF AI ... ALL TO A MAN HAD FALLEN BY THE EDGE OF THE SWORD".JOSHUA 8:24-25 'THE SAME IN SOUTHERN CANAAN, WHICH "YAHWEH GAVE INTO THE POWER OF ISRAEL; AND ISRAEL STRUCK EVERY LIVING CREATURE THERE WITH THE EDGE OF THE SWORD, AND LEFT NONE ALIVE".JOSHUA 10:30 THE SAME AT LACHISH WHERE "NO ONE WAS LEFT ALIVE".JOSHUA 10:33". THIS, INEVITABLY, GAVE BIRTH TO WHAT ACADEMICS AND INTELLECTUALS CALL “CHRISTIAN-TERRORISM”(SEE http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christian_terrorism). IN THE NEW TESTAMENT, WE SEE THE ACCOUNT OF INCITATION OF HOSTILITIES. REMEMBER JESUS’S WARNINGS: I HAVE NOT COME TO BRING PEACE, BUT A SWORD… FIRE… AND DIVISION! (MT 10:34, LK 12:49-53). ?? WHAT ABOUT THESE DIRECT ORDERS HE GAVE HIS DECIPLES: <>.OTHERWISE SOMEONE SHOULD EXPLAIN TO US MUSLIMS, WHAT IDEOLOGY TAUGHT THE LORD'S RESISTANCE ARMY IN UGANDA, TO CARRY OUT THEIR BARBARIC ACTS OF FORCEFUL RECRUITMENT AND ABDUCTION OF CHILDREN INTO THEIR FORCES, RAPING OF WOMEN OF ALL AGES, MAIMING, ROBBERY, ARSON AND BOMBING - AND ALL IN THE NAME OF THE LORD (?)!! YES, AND WHO ALSO TAUGHT HITLER TO SLAUGHTER ABOUT 4 MILLION JEWS? SAME GOES TO THE I.R.A. OF NORTHERN IRELAND, THE FARC OF COLOMBIA, AND SO ON AND SO ON... NOTE THAT ALL THESE ARE FROM CHRISTIAN-MAJORITY COUNTRIES!!

THEREFORE, WHO SO EVER MINUTELY IMAGINE A SINCERE, TRUE MUSLIM, REGARDLESS OF HIS/HER TRIBE, WOULD START/INITIATE AN UN-PROVOKED ATTACK ON ANY NON-MUSLIM, AGAIN, REGARDLESS OF HIS/HER TRIBE, MUST BE A VICTIM OF HIS/HER OWN PARANOIAL HALLUCINATIONS!! YOU CHRISTIANS, HAVE THIS PARANOIA ABOUT A MUSLIM DOMINATION AND ISLAMISATION, AND THEREFORE, SEEK TO CONTAIN OR OVERCOME YOUR PERCIEVED 'DOMINATORS' BY SERIES OF PLOTS: THIS INCLUDES THE FRIDAY NIGHT'S COLD-BLOODED MURDER OF THE 8 INNOCENT MUSLIMS, AS REPORTED BY SR, BUT ALSO FOLLOWS A TREND OF SERIES OF PRE-MEDITATED, UNWARRANTED MURDER-CRUSSADE THAT'S BEEN WAGED ON MUSLIMS. IN PLATEAU STATE PARTICULARLY, IT STARTED SINCE 1991. REMEMBER REVEREND PAUL GINDIRI, THE INITIATOR OF THE FIRST EVER ETHNO-RELIGIOUS VIOLENCE IN JOS (http://www.thenigerianvoice.com/nvnews/12087/1/why-crisis-persists-in-pl...)?? THAT WAS THE BEGINNING. THEN IN 2001. THEN THERE WAS ANOTHER, THIS TIME, “C.A.N.”-OCHESTRATED GENOCIDE IN YELWA, PLATEAU STATE ON 2ND MAY, 2004. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yelwa_massacre, http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2004/may/08/2). NO ONE CARED TO PAY HEED.

THE ONLY OCCASSION THE MUSLIMS RESPONDED WAS ON 17TH OF MARCH, 2010 AFTER ANOTHER KILLING FRENZY BY THE JOS CHRISTIANS ON THE 13TH OF JANUARY. THAT WAS WHEN THE 'WORLD'(?) SEEM TO NOTICE THAT KILLINGS ARE GOING ON IN JOS!! THE ONLY PROTESTS AND INTERVIEWS WE SEE AND HEAR ON TV AND RADIOS WERE THOSE OF CHRISTIANS DEMANDING THE 'HALT TO THE KILLINGS OF CHRISTIANS IN THE NORTH'!!! THERE HAS NEVER BEEN ANY MUSLIM RESPONSE TO THOSE CHRISTIAN PROTEST. NOT ONE!!! YET YOU CHRISTIANS KEEP CLAIMING AND SCREAMING THAT YOU ARE DOWN-TRODDEN(???)!! THE MUSLIMS, AS ENJOINED BY GOD THE ALMIGHTY, IN THE QUR’AANIC QUOTATIONS BELLOW, ONLY RISE TO DEFEND THEMSELVES, BUT END UP TAGGED ‘KILLERS’ AND ‘TERRORISTS’!! FOR THE RECORD, ISLAM DOES NOT TEACH MUSLIMS OFFENSE (ATTACK), IT TEACHES US DEFENSE! ALLAH (SWT) INSTRUCTED US MUSLIMS TO "… FIGHT IN THE WAY OF ALLAH THOSE WHO FIGHT YOU, BUT TRANSGRESS NOT THE LIMITS. TRULY, ALLAH LIKES NOT THE TRANSGRESSORS.”; “AND KILL THEM WHEREVER YOU FIND THEM, AND TURN THEM OUT FROM WHERE THEY HAVE TURNED YOU OUT. AND AL-FITNAH (PERSECUTION) IS WORSE THAN KILLING.

NO ONE CAN KILL ISLAM; YOUR CRUSADES ARE IF ANYTHING, FUELLING ISLAM AND MAKING IT EVEN MORE FERTILE AND APPEALING TO THOSE YET TO UNDERSTAND IT. AMEEN…

THESE CRISES

Dear Mail_DUDE - whatever that means. see the difference between us? I mean the two religions. while you find it very easy to quote the Bible copiuosly and even wrongly to support your cause, you people (muslims in Nigeria) do not have even base tolerance when Christians only mention your religion. Your arguments would have made good reading if only you had done a little bit more of research and fact finding. You seem to rely mainly on reactions by some individuals and organizations to draw conclusions. History is history and it cannot change. For you and your readers to enjoy and derive benefits from history, you must have the fortitude to tell it as it is and not select portions of it. Every write-up should carry message from which readers can deduce the writers rational leaning. Yours simply betrayed you as an elite mired in sentiment. Actually what deductions can be drawn from your write up? How will it help your muslim brothers and how will it change the minds of the christians? These are the issues your write up did not address so it simply could pass as "just one of those things".

Peace Maker

You are a peace maker honestly, May God forgive you muslims in this country for all the deadly evil and plots you are hatching. But know this that the God you can face any where to pray to and not the east alone is the Greatest. The God that created several Languages and can allow us pray to Him through these various languages and not just Arabic is The Lord and God of this country and the world at large.Let this be known to you all. Know it also that the truth cannot be hidden no matter how much you lie to the world via any medium-the world knows who you are-terrorists.

Who are the genesis of jos crisis

Oh God have mercy on us about d crisis at the jos plateau. The government are aware of the initiators but nothing is done.................

WE MUSLIMS KNOW JUST WHERE THESE CHRISTIAN INSPIRATION OF HATE, RACISM AND EVEN TERRORISM COME FROM. THE RECORDS ARE THERE TO SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES. FOR EXAMPLE, DR SIR IAN GUTHRIDGE CITED MANY INSTANCES OF GENOCIDE IN THE BIBLE - QUOTE-UN-QUOTE: ' THE BIBLE ALSO CONTAINS THE HORRIFIC ACCOUNT OF WHAT CAN ONLY BE DESCRIBED AS A "BIBLICAL HOLOCAUST".

BEFORE PHILOSOPHIZING, I THINK WE SHOULD FACE THE REALITY THAT WE, ALL OF US, ARE THE ARCHITECTS OF THESE PROBLEMS - ONE OF THOSE PROBLEMS BEING THAT SOME SECTIONS OF THE COUNTRY-SPECIFICALLY, MAJORITY OF OUR CHRISTIAN NEIGHBOURS, HAVE THIS PARANOIA ABOUT A MUSLIM DOMINATION AND ISLAMISATION, AND THEREFORE, SEEK TO CONTAIN OR OVERCOME THEIR PERCIEVED 'DOMINATORS' BY PLOTTING TO ENSURE A CHRISTIAN (REGARDLESS OF WHICH PART OF THE COUNTRY HE COMES FROM, NOR HIS SUITABILITY, NOR HIS SUITABILITY) IS PLACED IN POWER: THIS PLOTS INCLUDES GIVING (MOST AT TIMES) UNDUE CREDITS TO THEIR CANDIDATE(S), WHILE THROWING EVERY SORT OF DIRT ON ANY WOULD-BE MUSLIM CONTESTANT (RIGHTLY OR WRONGLY), WHICH ALSO INCLUDE PORTRAYING ALL NORTHERNERS AS "ALMAJIRIS", "PEASANT FARMERS", "ILLITERATES", ETC, ETC, WHEN IN ESSENCE, SAME CAN BE SAID OF ANY OTHER REGEON OF THIS COUNTRY, HAVING TRAVELLED THROUGH THE EAST, SOUTH AND WESTERN REGEONS. GEJ'S COMING TO POWER WAS PART OF THIS PLOT: THEY USED THE EGOCENTRIC NORTHERN 'ELITES' TO KEEP LYING TO THE NATION ON THE LATE PRESIDENT (YAR’ADUA)’S STATE OF HEALTH, ETC, ETC, THE FAILURE OF WHICH WOULD HAVE NECESSITATED RELINQUISHMENT OF POWER, ENDING THE REGIME, AND BRINGING THE GROUNDS FOR EARLY ELECTIONS… BUT NO, THAT WASN’T TO BE. INSTEAD, THE C.A.N. PE-PLANNED PRECEEDING EVENTS ENSUED, WHICH LED TO THE "EXTRA-LEGAL" APPOINTMENT OF GEJ TO THE POSITION OF 'ACTING PRESIDENT' (JOHN CAMPBELL, IN HIS BOOK, "NIGERIA: DANCING ON THE BRINK").

SIMILARLY, WHEN THE SCUFFLE WAS ON FOR A VP, THE C.A.N. SECRETLY BUT SWIFTLY MOVED IN. THEY NEVER HAD A CHRISTIAN GOVERNOR IN KADUNA STATE BEFORE NOW, SO SAMBO WAS INSTALLED AS GEJ’S VP, SO THERE'S A CHRISTIAN GOVERNOR IN KADUNA WHO, OF COURSE, WOULD BE RUNNING FOR THAT OFFICE COME 2011! AND, WHAT MAKES YOU THINK SAMBO WON'T DANCE TO THESE PARANOIDS' TUNES?? IT IS COMMON KNOWLEDGE TODAY, THAT THE CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION OF NIGERIA, C.A.N., DICTATES MOST, IF NOT ALL OF WHAT GOES ON IN THIS COUNTRY (ANY MUSLIM WHO DOESN'T THINK SO SHOULD TAKE A CLOSER LOOK AT THEIR FAITH NOW! THOSE WHO NEVER KNEW THIS SHOULD WAKE UP AND LOOK AROUND THEMSELVES, NOW!!). NEARLY EVERY NIGERIAN CHRISTIAN IS A MEMBER OF THE INFAMOUS UMBRELLA GROUP (C.A.N.) - BIG OR SMALL; THE BIG MARSHALL OUT PLANS OF RUNNING THE COUNTRY IN FAVOR OF THE CHRISTIANS, SMEARING THE MUSLIM MAJORITY IN EVIL LIGHT TO THE OUTSIDE WORLD AND SO ON, AND SO ON, AND SO ON, WHILE THE SMALL (AND WITH THE USE OF MOST OF OUR[?] HYPOCRITIC MUSLIM[?] ELITE[?]) EXECUTE THOSE EVIL PLANS-UNDER OUR VERY NOSE! TAKE ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF OUR POLITICAL LANDSCAPE, WHERE OUR (?) NORTHERN POLITICAL ‘ELITES(?)’ ARE ALWAYS AND CONTINUALLY USED TO RIG ELECTION IN FAVOR OF THE CHRISTIANS FOR PETTY APPOINTMENTS!!! SLOWLY BUT SURELY, THEY (CHRISTIANS) ARE TAKING OVER THE COUNTRY, IN THE LAND WHERE WE (MUSLIMS) ARE A CLEAR MAJORITY (C.I.A.-WORLD FACT BOOK, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christianity_in_Nigeria, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demographics_of_Nigeria, http://www.encyclopedia.com/topic/Nigeria.aspx), YET THEY KEEP CLAIMING THEY ARE DOWN-TRODDEN(???)!! BY GOD, THIS CRUSSADE THAT'S BEEN WAGED ON MUSLIMS, IS FAILING, AND SHALL CERTAINLY END UP IN A SHAMEFUL, UTTER FAILURE!!!!!! AMEEN…

jos crisis

why blaming Jonathan Goodluck,Jonah Jang,OBJ ABOUT Jos crises? moreover first attack is always carried by hausa/fulani.It is high time we spoke the truth,hausa/fulani are responsible for crisis in Jos together with the so-called highly placed members in the north who lured them into killing innocent christian soul who knows no bound.Hausa/fulani stop killing and embrace peace

Jos! Jos!! Jos Again????

Please let the setlers be setlers, and indegens be indegens. As for Sarah reporters, God will catch up with you.

state of emergency

Democracy,leadership and the over ambition of GEJ is responsible for the present Jos crisis. the hausa/fulani in jos north are in the majority and believe that democracy can give them governance in that LG. the berom or the so call indigens will not allow democracy to win so lets start the plateau project in killing all the muslems in the state. during OBJ regime in other to stop the killings he declare a state of emergency. and killing of innocent people stoped for almost 8years. But the commander of plateau project becomes the GOV. killing has been legalized in jos.and the inexperience GEJ could not declare state of emergency simply because he needs the support of Jang in the next election so innocent soul will continue to be wasted in the plataeu
