ISIS Terrorist in Nigeria have claimed responsibility for murdering eleven Christians during Christmas and filming the horrible ordeal according to a report:
ISIS-aligned jihadists have released a video claiming to show the execution of 11 blindfolded Christian men in Nigeria, in what analysts say was a barbaric act that was clearly timed to coincide with Christmas, according to reports.
“This is a message to Christians all over the world,” a masked man says in the one-minute video posted online late Thursday by the terror group’s Amaq news agency.
He claimed the killings at the hands of jihadists from the Islamic State West African Province were in retaliation for the death of ISIS chief Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and his spokesman.
Baghdadi committed suicide in October during a US special forces operation in Syria.
No details were given about the victims, but ISIS said they were “captured in the past weeks” in Nigeria’s northeastern Borno state, according to the BBC.

We were able to find a partial video of the executions after some digging. WARNING: VIOLENT CONTENT.
It is interesting that ISIS, having laid practically invisible for the last three years, has now started to re-appear just around election time for 2020, but certainly not with the same open prominence as what she had in the years leading up to the 2016 election.
Shoebat.com has noted many times that there are tremendous questions about the “targets” which ISIS chooses- for example, coming from Syria and claiming a hatred of the US and Israel but just so happens to show up from Mozambique to the Philippines (and also where US and Israeli interests are for the moment) thousands of miles from Syria but will refuse to walk the fifty miles or less over into Israel to attack -in addition to how ISIS has noted ties to meeting with ISIS leaders, then trains ISIS leaders, and given that Islamic terrorist activity has been fomented and used to implement a strategy of tension by western governments for centuries, one must necessarily consider that there is a lot more taking place here than what is apparently visible.
Now one cannot make any direct assumptions about what happened with this attack, and certainly it was a horrible thing. However, governments throughout history are known to direct or assist with the execution of horrible things for their own benefit.
The Trump administration recently released a list of the “worst offenders” for “religious persecution”. However, while there is much to be said about them, are these truly the “worst offenders”?
Consider that up until 2003, Iraq had a Christian community that was about 1.5 million people strong and had ancient roots going back to the time of Christ and the establishment of the community by St. Thomas the Apostle himself. Saddam Hussein’s foreign minister, Tariq Aziz, was a Christian, and Christians were well-respected and had positions of power and influence. Christians, while a minority, were well-treated under Saddam. It was after the US came and brought “democracy” that Christianity was ethnically cleansed from Iraq by way of the American support of Islamic terror groups such as ISIS as tools of political destabiliztion that resulted in a genocide.
People talk about “what the Muslims did” to Middle Eastern Christianity, but what the Americans did in fourteen years the Muslims could not accomplish in all fourteen centuries of Islam’s existence from the time of Mohammed. Even the Mongol raids of the 13th century did not bring as much destruction as what the Americans did, and the Ottoman hordes could only dream of what US soldiers and intelligence operatives created in a few short years.
Likewise, consider recently how Trump instituted a declaration that defined Judaism as an ethnicity, and given the use of the definition has opened a legal pathway for the banning of Christianity and stripping of the Churches of their 501(c)3 status on the basis of “discrimination” if they just read the Old or New Testament words about what God says of the Jews and what the Jews said in their own words.
In the US, many on the right will say that the “color of crime” is black because a lot of black people are disproportionately represented in criminal statistics. This is undeniable, and should not just be called some sort of “racism” because the facts are clear to see. However, there is something that can be noted, which is that the crime statistics are based on what is caught and prosecuted. Thus, one can note that many blacks are absolutely terrible at attempting to lie or cover up their crimes, and thus are more easily caught. This can be compared with whites and Jews, who tend to plan out their crimes and while they can and are caught, seem to either have a harder time getting caught or are caught less because they are better adept at covering or using legality as a shield.
The question then becomes not if the statistics are “wrong” in that which they cover is incorrect, but rather are they “incomplete” because, through no fault of their own, is it just that the whites and Jews commit crimes at the same rates but can obscure them better from public view?
Thus the same can be said about this “religious persecution” and the criticism of many countries in Asia or Africa who openly commit crimes against Christians. Yes, it is evil and wrong and the crimes are obvious for the world to see. However, one does not pay attention to the American, the German, or the Russia, in which the first committed a genocide against one of the most ancient Christian communities in the world in the name of “democracy”, and the latter two have been involved in the mass transfer of Middle Easterners, Africans or Central Asians into their nations of many religions while at the same time promoting nationalism and xenophobia that is being leveraged to bring about a rise in militarism which will inevitably be used to target said migrants in the name of political manipulation.
Christian persecution is real and awful, but one must also look at it in the context of greater political events, where Christians are treated as pawns and used to realize the ends of men who, as Wisdom 2 warns, have no care for what is good or bad, but just do what they believe gets them the most power, even if it means the deaths of millions, or of the innocent.
