The Scarlet Pimpernel is back with some information about the terrorist organization called Boko Haram – Burkasrugly
By now nearly everyone on planet Earth has heard of Boko Haram, the ultra violent Muslim terrorist group from northern Nigeria. Boko Haram has waged war on Christians and the Nigerian police. Without mercy they have bombed churches, Christian businesses and police stations throughout the northern half of Nigeria. It’s the old story of Jihad and “Kill the infidels !” again.
Boko Haram literally means “Western Learning is forbidden.” All of the Islamic world is divided into Haram (forbidden) and Halal (permitted). All actions carry either the Haram or Halal label. All of life is divided into these two categories.
Muslim terrorists the world over engage in the fantasy of the Golden Age of Islam. This age is usually considered the 7th to the 9th Cenuturies A.D. Muhammed Ibn al-Wahhab (1703-1792) actually taught that Muslims need to return to the practices of the time of Mohammed. Wahhab who lived in Arabia influenced the Arabs so much that even the modern-day Saudis consider themselves to be Wahhabis. This view is shared by the Wahabbis, al-Shabbab and Boko Haram just to name a few. It has been this backward looking philosophy that has kept the Muslim World back in the 8th Century and why they have eschewed modern progress.
Let us for the moment consider the total idiocy of the Boko Haram movement.In order to carry out a terrorist attack the group uses high explosives, AK-47s, semi-automatic pistols, grenades, cell phones, computers, automobiles, motor scooters, cameras and the printing press. (Hmmm, didn’t all of these devices exist in the time of the prophet Mohammed ?) If they truly believed that Western learning was forbidden their Jihad would be carried out with swords, spears and arrows. It would certainly make our task far easier.
Like all religious fanatics Boko Haram picks and chooses. Weapons of war are excluded from the Haram process. Boko Haram does use Western learning when it is expedient for them to do so. So Boko Haram becomes Boko Halal violating a basic tenet of their warped bloody faith. The truth of the matter is the Islamic world is so backward it can’t make a decent car, or a reliable gun, or for that matter even a cell phone. And this is why the West, fully awake to the looming danger, will win.
