The “religion of peace” has murdered 59 schoolchildren. Waiting to hear some condemnation. Not holding my breath. http://t.co/oS5qGxV3y9

The infamous “religion of peace” has struck again — perhaps they were celebrating the news issued by Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel about US troop cuts.
As initially reported by CBS News/Reuters, gunmen from Islamist group Boko Haram stormed a boarding school in northeast Nigeria overnight and killed 29 pupils, many of whom died in flames as the school was burned to the ground. But that number has been revised upward to 59 killed. “Some of the students bodies were burned to ashes,” Police Commissioner Sanusi Rufai said of the attack on the Federal Government college of Buni Yadi, a secondary school in Yobe state, near the state’s capital city of Damaturu. All those killed were boys. No girls were touched, Rufai said.” The Islamists, whose struggle for an Islamic state in northern Nigeria has killed thousands and made them the biggest threat to security in Africa’s top oil producer, increasingly are preying on the civilian population. Boko Haram, whose name means “Western education is sinful” in the northern Hausa language, have frequently attacked schools in the past. A similar attack in June in the village of Mamudo left 22 students dead. In September, suspected Islamic extremists attacked an agricultural college in the same region, gunning down dozens of students as they slept in dormitories and torching classrooms.
