Islamic State in West Africa slits the throats of 16 Xtian fishermen


Boko Haram pledged allegiance to the Islamic State last February and changed its name to the Islamic State in West Africa last April. The murder of these 29 Christians will pass unnoticed by their brethren in the West, since, you know, talking about it could harm “Muslim-Christian dialogue.” The weak and pusillanimous Christian leaders of the West, bleating “Be Not Afraid” while they cower in fear, will not be remembered favorably by free Christians of the future, if there are any.

“Boko Haram Slits the Throats of Sixteen Christian Fishermen,” by Thomas D. Williams, Breitbart, August 1, 2015 (thanks to

Boko Haram militants slit the throats of sixteen Christian fishermen on the shores of Lake Chad in the Nigerian state of Borno.

The massacre took place last Monday, but the news was released only yesterday because the area of ​​Lake Chad is devoid of any type of telephone; survivors had to reach Maiduguri, the capital of Borno state, to raise the alarm.

Earlier reports stated that ten men were killed, but the number has since been adjusted upward. According to Abubakar Gamandi, head of the fishermen’s union in Borno State, on Monday around 4 pm “Boko Haram attacked three villages on the shores of Lake Chad where they slaughtered 10 people, all of them fishermen.”

“Boko Haram decided not to use guns so as not to attract the attention of soldiers from Baga. This is why they used knives to slaughter their victims,” Gamandi said.

The victims are all citizens of Chad, where in recent months there have been numerous attacks by Islamist radicals.
