    “Joseph Bagobiri … expressed dismay that the persecution of Christians in Nigeria is not given anything like the same level of international attention as persecuted Christians in the Middle East.”
    And the latter is not given the same level of international attention as the self-inflicted “plight of the Palestinians” or the equally self-inflicted “Rohingya genocide”.
    But, hey-ho, Muslims killing non-Muslims is utterly in the “dog bites man” league of news whereas the converse is vastly more “man bites dog” and fits into the assidiously promoted narrative of Muslims being oppressed.

    As one wag put it: “An Islamist is a man who will beat you around the head with a baseball bat and then sue you for a wrist-strain.”

    Those violent and vicious Muslims in their murderous persecution of Christians aren’t really going to get away with their destruction of Christians. As the apostle Paul had written each individual Christian is actually, in the View of God, a temple of God. For to Christians, it is written in the Bible “Don’t you know that that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in your midst? If anyone destroys God’s Temple, God will destroy that person; for God’s temple is sacred, and you together are that temple.” First Corinthians 3:16,17. [N.I.V.] As in “A man reaps what he sows.” Galatians 6:7.
