Umar Abdulmutallab’s Country’s “Peaceful” Muslims: Attack on Churches Kills 50

By Debbie Schlussel

Much is being made  about how Northwest Flight 253 Islamic terrorist Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab’s father tried to turn him in and how he was radicalized in the West (the UK) and Yemen.  And, along with those news items, ignorant commentators tell us that this is very much unlike the “peaceful, moderate” Muslims of Nigeria, whom his father, Alhaji Umaru Mutallab, is supposed to epitomize.



The “Moderate” Muslims of Nigeria Murder 50 Christians, Displace 5,000

But , in fact, over the weekend, Nigerian Muslim “youths”–any of whom could have been Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab–set fire to a church filled with worshippers, starting a riot that killed at least 27 people in Jos, Nigeria.  That doesn’t include the church worshippers who ran out and were greeted by Muslims with machetes.  In all, 40 were murdered (the Red Cross says more than 50–see below). Note that five of yesterday’s Muslim “youths” were wearing Nigerian military uniforms.

Yeah, let’s hear it for the “moderate, civilized” Muslims of Nigeria. And don’t think that when they reach critical mass there’s anything to prevent them from doing this at a Saint Luke’s or a Saint Michael’s Church in America (since there were several churches attacked, including ones with both of those names, in Nigeria):

In Jos city, Plateau state, about 200 Muslim youths attacked Christians near St. Michael’s Catholic Church, according to local sources of Christian Solidarity Worldwide. The human rights organization reported that Muslim youths congregated to renovate a house next to St. Michael’s Catholic Church, owned by a man who allegedly killed three Christians in the November 2008 sectarian violence in Jos.

But instead of renovating, the youths reportedly assaulted a female passerby before attacking St. Michael’s Church. They also set fire to several churches, including a Christ Apostolic Church and two Evangelical Church of West Africa churches, as well as local houses and businesses.


Jos came under a dusk to dawn curfew on Sunday, imposed by the Plateau State Government, after the city returned to the boil when Muslim youths attacked Christians on their way to Saint Luke’s Church in the Nasarawa Gwom neigbourhood. . . .

The state Christian Elders Consultative Forum (CECF) condemned the attack, describing it as Moslem terrorism on churches on the Plateau.

A statement signed by CECF National Co-ordinator, Andersen Bok, and Secretary General, Musa Pam, said the attack, “coming after the normal Christian services in churches was premeditated, wicked, deliberate and terrifying.

“Our fellow brothers and sisters were just coming out of churches in the Nasarawa area of Jos when some Islamic youths pounced on them with machetes and other dangerous weapons.

“Shortly after the attack, we were made to believe that some Islamic fundamentalists were engaging themselves in some fracas after some disagreement which spilled into churches leading to Christian casualties.

“Why must it be churches and Christians who will suffer from an all-Muslim affair? In the last Jos crisis, the same Christians became casualties after some Muslims protested an election result that was intended to elect local government Chairmen.

“Why will Islamic fundamentalists engage themselves on a Sunday morning shortly after the service if the ‘terror’ act was not premeditated?

“While thanking the Plateau State Government for its prompt reaction, which quickly restored peace to the city, we call on our Muslim brothers and sisters to see this as the last of such provocation on the Christians in the state. Enough is enough.” . . .

Even some people not affected by the violence have taken shelter at state police headquarters in fear. . . .

Police Commissioner, Greg Ayangting, informed journalists that it was too early to say whether places of worship were destroyed, but added that Muslim youths who started the trouble by throwing stones at Christians have been identified.

He confirmed the arrest of 35 suspects, five in military uniform who killed and maimed.

And Islamic attacks on Nigerian Christians have spanned at least a decade

Rioting in September 2001 killed more than 1000 people. Another Muslim and Christian conflict killed up to 700 people in 2004. More than 300 residents died during a similar uprising in 2008.

Security sources say more than 50 people may have been killed since Sunday when clashes started. Red Cross officials say 5,000 people have been displaced by the rioting.

Yup, these are the “moderate” Muslims in Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab’s country–the ones we’ve been told would never condone terrorism against innocent civilians . . . unless those innocents happen to be Christians at or near a church.

Wow, the definition of “moderate” certainly has “evolved” over time. And not in a forward way. More like back to the stone age.

While there are some moderate Muslims (far too few and even fewer speak out despite their obligation to do so), there is NO SUCH THING AS MODERATE ISLAM.

I agree they have devolved over time back to the stone age, exactly where they need to be bombed back into.

Jarhead on January 19, 2010 at 3:21 pm

He should be shot in a public execution in the town square. Those can be effective crime deterrents.

Good informative post!


Do you remember this happened about two years ago when there was a Miss World competition scheduled to take place in Nigeria?

I remember hundreds, or even thousands, of Muslim Nigerians taking to the streets, placing automobile and/or truck tires over the bodies of innocent people walking about, filling the tires with gasoline, then lighting them ablaze. Hundreds of innocent people were burned to death in that horrific, cruel, but often practice method by those Nigerian Muslims during the cycle of that violent episode.

Furthermore, Churches were also vandalized and attacked, and, as in your informative commentary-news item here, machete carrying, and sword carrying thugs chopped people up with their cutting tools as well.

No, Islam is NOT the Religion of Peace, Love, Tolerance, Compassion, Mercy, Enlightenment, and Understanding! Islam has clearly demonstrated itself to be a blod and death, torture and sadism cult, as well as a cult of misogynism, treating women like sex slaves and torture and murder slaves, arresting raped women, trying them for “Fornication,” then condemning them to either to being buried in the ground up to their necks and then stoning them to death, or strapping them to immobolize them and then whipping them with multiple lashes. In Afghanistan, before the US went in to clear out the Taliban and al Qaeda, women were taken to what were once used as soccer fields, and shot dead before the “audience” of onlookers in the stadium. Sick!

Then we see the “honor rapes” that have taken place throughout different nations, carried out by Muslims, such as in Pakistan, and elsewhere, and also the “Honor killings” taken against even a father’s own daughters by the father himself! Sick!

Then we see the Muslim “couple” in the USA in which the male beheaded his own wife.

Yes, Islam cannot be defended as “The Religion of Peace, Love, Mercy, Compassion, Tolerance, Understanding, and Enlightenment” when they continue to demonstrate such vile, violent, hate filled behavior, and while they continue to show contempts for an entire nation of peoples who have been persecuted world-wide for centuries, as many Muslims, and leftists-Fifth Columnists-Liberals-Progressives show toward Israel and Jews.

Heck, Muslims even attack Hindus, Buddhists, Jains, Zoroastrians, Ba’hais, and Sikhs, and Muslims have done so since Mohammad appeared 1400 years ago, claiming that the Angel Gabriel appeared to him in a cave and dictated the teachings included in the Q’ran.

Let’s not forget the Islamic concept of Jizyah, the Religious tax, and Dihmmitude, and Tadzya, the act of deception and lying, approved of by Muslims, and practiced by Democrats-Leftists-Liberals-Professives-Fifth Columnists here in the USA, and by Socialists and Communists.

If Islam is the Religion of Peace, then I am Superman, Yoda, Jesus the Christ, Moses, Buddha, Krishna, Rama, Guru Nanak, Guru Govind Sinhg, Mighty Mouse, Albert Einstein, Werner von Braun, Jonas Salk, Louis Pasteur, Mario Lanza, Placido Domingo, Jimmy Bruno (Jazz Guitarist), Oscar Peterson (Jazz pianist), The Lone Ranger, Rambo, the UFC undefeated world champion, Hussein Bolt (World Record 100 meter sprint holder from Jamaica), Bruce Lee, Tito Puente, and Mel Torme, and the world record IQ of Marylin vos Savant, all rolled into one!

Thanks for the informative topics and the opportunity to vent via your comments page, Debbie.

Best to you, Debbie!

Debbie, as you have said many times, the term radical muslim is redundant.

Christians, be prepared to defend yourselves, as Jesus instructed his followers; “… if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one”.

I did, and it’s with me all the time.

Rocky on January 19, 2010 at 5:57 pm

Sometimes I think the word ‘moderate’ should be eliminated from the English language. It is certainly one of the most misused words ever. Moderate Muslims, moderate Republicans, moderate Democrats —

Little Al on January 19, 2010 at 6:03 pm

Islam is certainly NOT the religion of peace,etc…but of pieces…they mame, kill,stone and torch people to death. It’s sick and it is stone age. I just wonder what kind of muslim our POTUS is…is he practicing taquia??

Debbie did you see/hear about this?RT @littlebytesnews: Raped 13yr old stoned 2 death in Somalia.She pleaded,”Don’t kill me, don’t kill me,” #islam http://bit.ly/6AJ5zN

I can’t wait to see the Liberal spin on this one. “But we have no right to judge another culture by our American standards.”

Wrong! Yes we do, and I judge Nigerian Islamic “culture” as a major failure. But then again, these are the same kinds of people that send y’all emails with ridiculous claims of millions of dollars.

John on January 19, 2010 at 9:04 pm

what islam is first and foremost

it is pure RACISM!

Bob S. on January 20, 2010 at 12:05 am

I like to think that I stay on top of the news, but here is another story that I missed. It really shouldn’t surprise me at this point, seeing how the media is. I am just glad that I can get this news on your site. I wonder how these Muslims would like it if their mosques were destroyed? They would go nuts (or more nuts I should say)! They think it is fine that they destroy Christian churches and lives. The evil people who did this are absolutely disgusting and completely brainwashed.

Angela04 on January 20, 2010 at 12:45 am

“And don’t think that when they reach critical mass there’s anything to prevent them from doing this at a Saint Luke’s or a Saint Michael’s Church in America”

ABSOLUTELY! Everywhere they go, if they are allowed to reach “critical mass” that’s what they do, along with demanding “self determination” on the territory where they live, and which they accuse others of having “stolen” from them, in order to establish a foot hold in that land, and expand outward from there.

It’s such and obvious pattern; one I picked up on more than 10 years ago, even before I started following this as closely as I have.

Religion of peace my Tuckas!

Some of THE nicest people I have ever met, or heard about, have been from Nigeria. One e.g., I could find, though I’ve heard of more, and known a few in college.

Needless to say, they were NOT Muslims. I can only hope and pray that they can one day escape the shadow of that evil cult, and be free to give expression to their very special character traits.

Profiling has failed us; we don’t need profiling to identify Individuals like the Christmas-Day Bomber or the Fort Hood Shooter! There is a better solution!

Virtually all media outlets are discussing whether we should be profiling all Arab Muslims; I will in the one-page explain why we don’t need profiling. Over 15 years ago, we at the Center for Aggression Management developed an easily-applied, measurable and culturally-neutral body language and behavior indicators exhibited by people who intend to perpetrate a terrorist act. This unique methodology utilizes proven research from the fields of psychology, medicine and law enforcement which, when joined together, identify clear, easily-used physiologically-based characteristics of individuals who are about to engage in terrorist activities in time to prevent their Moment of Commitment.

The Problem
Since the foiled terrorist attack by Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the Nigerian national on Northwest Flight 253 to Detroit, the President has repeatedly stated that there has been a systemic failure as he reiterates his commitment to fill this gap in our security. This incident, like the Fort Hood shooting, exemplifies why our government must apply every valid preventative approach to identify a potential terrorist.

The myriad methods to identify a terrorist, whether “no-fly list,” “explosive and weapons detection,” mental illness based approaches, “profiling” or “deception detection” – all continue to fail us. Furthermore, the development of deception detection training at Boston Logan Airport demonstrated that the Israeli methods of interrogation will not work in the United States.

All media outlets are discussing the need for profiling of Muslim Arabs, but profiling does not work for the following three reasons:

1. In practice, ethnic profiling tells us that within a certain group of people there is a higher probability for a terrorist; it does not tell us who the next terrorist is!

2. Ethnic profiling is contrary to the value our society places on diversity and freedom from discrimination based on racial, ethnic, religious, age and/or gender based criteria. If we use profiling it will diminish our position among the majority of affected citizens who support us as a beacon of freedom and liberty.

3. By narrowing our field of vision, profiling can lead to the consequence of letting terrorists go undetected, because the terrorist may not be part of any known “profile worthy” group – e.g., the Oklahoma City bomber, Timothy McVeigh

The Solution
Our unique methodology for screening passengers can easily discern (independently of race, ethnicity, religious affiliation, age, and gender) the defining characteristics of human beings who are about to engage in terrorist acts.

The question is when will our government use true “hostile intent” through the “continuum of aggressive behavior” to identify potential terrorists? Only when observers focus specifically on “aggressive behavior” do the objective and culturally neutral signs of “aggression” clearly stand out, providing the opportunity to prevent these violent encounters. This method will not only make all citizens safer, but will also pass the inevitable test of legal defensibility given probable action by the ACLU.

As our Government analyzes what went wrong regarding Abdulmatallab’s entrance into the United States, you can be assured that Al Qaeda is also analyzing how their plans went wrong. Who do you think will figure it out first . . . ?

John Byrnes on January 20, 2010 at 6:24 am

    Mr Byrnes,
    Your an idiot. Aggression management? for terrorists? What is it going to take for people like you to understand that a group hug is NOT going to work? It has NEVER worked The fact that you would even mention something like this goes to show you do not understand the fundamental beliefs these people hold. WE ARE NOT MUSLIM so WE MUST CONVERT OR DIE!! These people do not blow themselves up in order to kill us because I drive a Viper, or Debbie has a large bank account. They do it because GOD tells them to kill non believers. Because we not only tollerate ideas that the Koran forbids, but in fact promote those ideas
    This is not someone who gets into bar fights, or punches you in the face because you cut him in line. These are hard core ideological fanatics who would view your “Aggression management” class as just more of a way to promote tolerance of things the Koran forbids.
    50% of the terrorists so far have been named Muhammed
    90% Bought one way tickets for cash and had no baggage
    100% have been Muslims
    so tell me again why Profiling will not work?

    Martin Fee on January 21, 2010 at 8:12 am

Mr Byrnes:

You claim that your Aggression Management is highly effective and will prevent situations like the fort hood shooter.

How many terrorists or how many would be shooters has your Aggression system stopped?

Where is your system being used to stop these kind of terrorists?

BTW-Who said that the Israeli system of profiling in the USA would not work here? What proof do they offer?

You said the following;”If we use profiling it will diminish our position among the majority of affected citizens who support us as a beacon of freedom and liberty.”

I totally disagree with your contention that ethnic profiling will jeopardize our standing in the world or with ethnic minorities. Actually, it has been proven in the field that it works extremely well in targeting known criminals that intend to inflict harm. IE Muslim Terrorists

Retired Law Enforcement,

Problem is the Obama Administration is losing power. Democraps are being voted out everywhere and this is a really bad thing.
His ego will not allow him to accept that he is a failure and will lose office soon which will also lose the Democraps control over the population. The only thing they will have left is a massive terrorist attack so they can consolidate power the same way the Nazi’s burned down the Reichstag.
A massive attack will give them marshal law and the ability they believe to do away with the Constitution once and for all.
Beware!! There will be a massive atack in the coming year, before the 2010 election after that Democrats will be out of power so it must be soon

Martin Fee on January 21, 2010 at 7:57 am

The nazis{not defending them. They did the waste no crisis thing] did not burn the Reichstag. This has been proven. Was in records after the wall fell that it was the communists that did it. They even admitted it. If anything happens, it will be because someone allowed it to happen.A opps in security as is what allways happens.

mike c on January 22, 2010 at 2:21 pm

Ahem, I hate to try and detract from your incitements to ethnic hatred, but this is a tide of violence that flows back and forth.
I notice you ommit to mention the muslim temples burnt and vandalised by christians.
It is people like you Miss Schlussel (but speaking in arabic and saying exactly the same things, with the swapping of occasional key words) that cause this kind of violence.
And It seems rediculous to me, Islam, Jewdaism and Christianity all derive from the same root, and are all as spurious as each other; it is patiently obvious that there is more than one god.
It is implied in the ten commandments;
Why would god need to say “I am the lord your god, you shall have no other gods before me” and then need to have a seperate commandment telling followers “thou shalt not worship false Idols”? This logically implies that there are other gods who are not false Idols.
Also a considerable amount of the hatred the Islamic fanatics have for the west seems to be more related to the american worship of Mammon,
For that is what the extreme capitalist consumerist society takes as it’s god in actuallity, even if you go to church on the sabbath, if you spend the rest of the week trying to ammass wealth rather than helping your fellow man then you are worshiping Mammon, the evil god of money and self interest.
this is what the few muslims with whom I’ve discussed the geopolitical stuation appear to think;
That it’s not about Islam vs Chritianity, but spirtuallity vs materialism.
I don’t entirely agree with this, but it is an interesting view and one I would like to discuss.
“No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other; or else he will be devoted to one and despise the other. You can not serve both God and Mammon.”
Matthew 6,24.

Have Fun.
