      beg to differ...they invoke sufferings and death in the name of religion...they are beast for they consume their brotherman and tear human flesh and spill human blood no remorse. and they attack every time God's most beloved: his church and his people, the poor, virgins, women and children. lastly they war with everyone and neighbor and their fellowmen never condemn them or their heinous acts....

A group that is out to disrupt the peAce in our country. Since the president is not from the North, they have vowed to frustrate his administration. I call them heaRtless elements.

    @Mmmmm, they are dogs and cowards killing innocent people and shedding blood all over the Northern Nigeria. Islam my religion does preach murder. It's a peaceful religion. Prophet Muhammed(SAW) did not ask us to kill our fellow brothers and sisters. Boko Haram is not Islamic! They are satanic agents from hell.

    If the US were one of the top-ten oil exporting nations, and most of our oil got exported to Nigeria as our children starved, I could see some of us forming groups and attacking "our own" pipelines and any who had been conducting business with those who drank our oil. even if they were our neighbors.(Nigeria is one of the world's top-ten oil exporting nations) And God forbid some other country actually invades and occupies US and tries to force US to be like them. What would we call ourselves, I wonder. Wolverines?

    Equipped by the politicians, overthrew the politician to become an uncontrollable lion. Human identification required, satellite survelliance, the force should join the sect in disguise same way they are in the government to conquer them, enforce border security. Some foreign countries will surely benefit from Nigeria's division. In all UNITY IN DIVERSITY, if the US can survive we WILL as long as WE TRUST IN GOD.

    If Islam is a peaceful religion can somebody tell me why the greatest disregard for human lives ,terrorism and human rights abuse,destruction,violence and blood shed are mainly associated with moslems and so called islamic countries?I remember col. Umar, former governor of Kaduna state once said he was ashamed to be a moslem.From what is happening in Syria,Pakistan!Aphganistan, northern Nigeria,Bahrain and 9/11 to name a few, Islam is at the root of all this crises. All these attrocities are carried out by moslems. Is Islam the only religion in the world. In Nigeria the Christian population is 60percent,moslems 30 and others 10percent. Am sure that the 'satanic verses'(SAlman Rushdie) in the Koran encourage these violence,blood shed,and terrorism. Its a shame. Victor
