It seems that when it comes to addressing Muslim terrorism, nobody in Barack Obama’s Administration can tell the truth. His Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs, Jonnie Carson, has declared that the Muslim murder sprees in Nigeria are not driven by Islam’s hatred of any religion but their own. Carson said, “religion is not driving extremist violence.”
His statement came the day after a Christian church in Nigeria was bombed during an Easter Sunday service. The attack, which killed 39 Nigerian Christians, followed the same plan used by Boko Haram (a Nigerian Islamist terrorist group) when they killed 40 Nigerian Christians on Christmas Day in the troubled African country.
Carson, who is a comfortable liar, compared Islamic terror in Nigeria to ‘ethnic diversity’ in America saying, “I want to take this opportunity to stress one key point and that is that religion is not driving extremist violence either in Jos or northern Nigeria. While some seek to inflame Muslim-Christian tensions, Nigeria’s ethnic and religious diversity, like our own in this country, is a source of strength, not weakness and there are many examples across Nigeria of communities working across religious lines to protect one another.”
Brushing aside reality and relying on the willing blindness of the Democrat cheerleaders in the media, the unfunny Jonnie Carson ignored the facts of the Easter Sunday attack. He said nothing about how the murders in Nigeria were committed (by suicide bomber – the signature weapon of Islamic terrorists.)
Knowing the bobble heads in the media would smile and write down everything he said, Carson made no mention of the ongoing campaign by the Nigerian Islamic terror group Boko Haram, which translates to “Western education is forbidden.” He failed to mention the links Boko Haram has to al-Qaeda and Boko Haram’s oft-made vow to exterminate Nigeria’s Christians. He said nothing about the terror cell’s having killed over 1000 Christians and “heretical” Muslims since mid 2009.
Saying Carson is a liar may sound hars,h but as the Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs, how could he possibly not know about Boko Haram?
This lie from Carson fits perfectly with Hillary Clinton’s refusal to issue its annual report on human rights in nations that receive US taxpayer dollars in foreign aid.
Nigeria receives million of our dollars a year, and admitting that Nigerian Christians are the target of ongoing Islamic terror would cause problems with Barack Obama’s supporters in the Muslim world.
So “HEEEEEEEEERE’S Jonnie!”
