Christian Martyrs in Nigeria
Commemorating Christian Martyrs
Christian martyrs: a horrific, graphic scene (see below; you may prefer to avoid the photo & video below it). The message comes from Juan Carlos Martos:
“This is a brutal example of how far the struggle between Muslims and Catholics in Nigeria has reached. Muslims are determined to impose their ‘religion’ all over Africa as well as in other continents and countries of the world. Islam has but one goal: to rule the world at any cost!
“And where are the International Human Rights’ Organizations?
“Christians are burnt alive in Nigeria: a horrific Holocaust right in front of International indifference! as denounced by Father Juan Carlos Martos, on behalf of the Missionari Clarettiani, via del Sacro Cuore di Maria, Rome, Italy.
“By publishing this graphic document on Facebook, I have intended to make the world aware of certain terrible events totally ignored or minimized by the mainstream media; an authentic genocide so cruel and inhuman only comparable with the most hateful and vile acts in the Nazi extermination camps.
“To my great surprise, Facebook has criticized me for the publication of this graphic document as a proof of the Holocaust that Christians have been suffering in Nigeria in the last ten years. According to Facebook’s
Security policy of the ‘social’ Network, this photo has been classified as ‘pornographic’, ‘violent’ or ‘inappropriate’ and hence I was disallowed to publish any picture for a week. And I was threatened drastic measures if I insist publishing any document that prove the terrible violations of Human Rights in Nigeria.
“This attitude by the (Spanish) Facebook Management is an attack to the freedom of expression as much as a shameful insult to the 500 victims (only in this horrible episode) slaughtered by Islamic terror only for being Christian.
“I thought that this social network, originated in the United States, would not bend its knees in front of terror. Especially, when still healing their wounds suffered in the gruesome 9/11 attack, just as our own 3/11 at Madrid railway station, all innocent victims of the wild fury and insanity of Islamic terror.
“This seems even more unacceptable in Spain, a Democratic state, where the rights of opinion, expression and religion are guaranteed by the Constitution (Art. 16 and 20), if there is an attempt to limit such rights, let alone through threats and coercion thus weakening their freedom of expression by condemning as “inappropriate” a graphic document (not a photomontage) which reflects a brutal reality in all its crudeness.
“Contrarily, the Administrators of Facebook Spain should welcome this public protest advocating that such a barbarian act will never be replicated and that its perpetrators will be brought to justice. This is a right and duty of every citizen: a service to society, ultimate goal, I feel, of any network that defines itself as ‘social’.
Regrettably, if the murders continue, this is greatly because truth is always hidden to the sovereign people, so that they may not be aware and ‘disdained’ by it: complicit silence by the mainstream media leads to the indifference of the international political community facing this unspeakable Holocaust! Let alone the cowardice already rooted in the western world facing the Islamic terror. A consequence of the stupid “Alliance of civilizations”: another regrettable incident of our former Prime Minister Rodriguez Zapatero.
“Can you imagine the reaction of the Islamic terrorist organization in the (impossible) case of a massacre of Muslims in a mosque, by the hands of Christian terrorists? And how widely would our media cover and condemn the crime and the criminals??
“Therefore, from this modest blog, I ask a favor from all people who are reading me: please distribute this photo and its comments using all the media you have. If only for commemorating these martyrs since, unfortunately, Facebook seems to be on the side of the executioners by preventing the publication of such tragic events.”

Christian martyrs and religious wars
Educational symbol from “The New Religious Wars ” by Terry Hamburg
Throughout the ages religious wars have been and still are common events. Members of all religions have committed atrocities on peoples of another faith– especially on the Jews. As this informative You-Tube video (“Muslims of Sharia massacre Christian martyrs in Nigeria”) shows, followers of Christ in Nigeria are suffering widely. Most recently the Christian martyrs in Nigeria and elsewhere have undergone vicious attacks and murder by Islamic extremists:
“If martyrdom is the sharpest edge of persecution, then Nigeria’s Christians felt the blade fall more than any other Christian community in 2010, with roughly 2000 Christians killed in appalling religious riots in the northern states. Other countries where martyrs were notably high were Iraq (90 Christians killed); Pakistan and Laos (29 believers killed in each), and Egypt and India, with nine murdered Christians each.”
From Open Doors website
But we must remember how it was the Christians who, long ago, carried out the infamous Inquisitions at the hands of Catholic interrogators
and once waged holy crusades
Instructive drawing from Doug Lawrence website
which, in many ways, were not unlike the Muslim jihads
of today. In RenewAmerica James Atticus Bowden opines in his excellent article, Jihads and Crusades:
“Only the Muslims can decide for themselves to have a Reformation and an Enlightenment to give up Jihad and killing people who convert, killing people who criticize Mohammed, killing innocent and their own people with suicide bombers, public stonings, or beheadings.”
“An international interfaith conference has revealed that 105,000 Christians are being killed every year simply because of their faith.”
