Boko Haram Murders
Awful carnage has once again been inflicted in Nigeria. This time a bombing has killed at least seventy at a bus station in Abuja. When jihadists detonate a bomb in a place widely visited by the public, they are virtually certain to kill men, women, and children. The explosion killed Christians and animists, but also took the lives of faithful Muslims. This act is not part of "holy war" but of random, nihilistic violence. Those who have perpetrated this terror must be rooted out, and more important, the warped ideology behind them must be denounced by decent people everywhere and condemned by Imams as an unforgivable act.
