    As Neo., reo colonization is defiantly hitting the Motherland from all sides why in the hell at this time are we still hating each other over religion instead of uniting as a race?
    At a time when we need to unite the most.

    Christmas Carnage In Nigeria; 5 Churches Bombed

    JOS, Nigeria (CNN) -- A string of bombs struck churches in five Nigerian cities Sunday, leaving dozens dead and wounded on the holiday, authorities and witnesses said.The blasts mark the second holiday season that bombs have hit Christian houses of worship in the west African nation. In a statement issued late Tuesday, Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan called the bombings "a dastardly act that must attract the rebuke of all peace-loving Nigerians.""These acts of violence against innocent citizens are an unwarranted affront on our collective safety and freedom," Jonathan said. "Nigerians must stand as one to condemn them."

    Bombs targeted churches across the country, hitting the cities of Madalla, Jos, Kano, and Damaturu and Gadaka, said journalist Hassan John, who witnessed the carnage in Jos. The death toll in Madalla alone was 16, Nigeria's National Emergency Management Agency spokesman Yushau Shuaib told CNN.John said witnesses in Madalla reported a higher death toll, with more than 30 killed. Some victims died after being taken to a hospital, he said.In Damaturu, a northern town in Yobe state, a police station and a state security building were also bombed, an aid worker said. The worker asked not to be named for security reasons.Nwakpa Okorie, a spokesman for the Nigerian Red Cross, said the some of the wounded were taken to the capital Abuja for treatment."The situation is under control now. The security agents have secured the streets close to the bombed areas ... in Madalla,
    Jos and Dematuru," he said.Jonathan said his government "will not relent in its determination to bring to justice all the perpetrators of today's acts of violence and all others before now." And in Washington, the White House said U.S. officials would help Nigeria pursue those behind "what initially appear to be terrorist acts.""We condemn this senseless violence and tragic loss of life on Christmas Day," White House spokesman Jay Carney said in a written statement. "We offer our sincere condolences to the Nigerian people and especially those who lost family and loved ones."The first explosion Sunday struck near a Roman Catholic church in Madalla,
    west of Abuja, Nigeria's capital, the National Emergency Management Agency said. Church officials were trying to get a picture of what happened in the city."Lives have been lost but we do not have the details," said the Rev. Michael Ekpenyong. "The area has been cordoned off. I tried to call the priest but I couldn't get through."Ekpenyong, the secretary general of the country's Catholic Secretariat, said the church that was bombed was "not a big church, but lots of people attend." Photos from the scene showed burned-out cars and at least three bodies on the ground, one covered with a blanket, at the rural church.Usman Abdallah Baba, who witnessed the bombing, said there were at least 15 or 16 casualties
    and that authorities were still counting the toll.Baba said local people were already blaming the violent extremist Muslim Boko Haram sect, which has targeted Christians as well as Muslims its members consider insufficiently Islamic.In 2010, five churches in Jos were attacked while residents were celebrating Christmas Eve. The blasts killed dozens in Jos, which lies on a faith-based fault line between the Muslim-dominated north and the mainly Christian south.

    Ankur maybe you want to go on a Nigerian website and ask that. I told you all my first post that Africans are TRIBAL and non-racial. Pan Africaism is a pipe dream.

    That dirty Arab religion again. Now those Arabs have shackled the minds of Africans and they are tearing each other apart. They have to target both religions: Christianity and Islam!

    No one can definitively know, who is really behind, the violent tragedy in Nigeria, immediately after the fact and before any investigation. In the past, there have been impostors claiming to represent certain groups, who have taken credit, in order to demonize other groups. There is also a historical record of national governments, as well as colonial powers, attacking one group and blaming it on the other, in a divide and rule strategy. I'm not a conspiracy theorist, but solving a crime requires asking the question, 'who benefits?' Does the Muslim or Christian community benefit from this tragedy? Does the government benefit by playing off one group against another? May be. Do arms manufacturers benefit in selling weapons, security equipment and services worth millions or billions to a country, by blowing up a few dozen people? Threats of any kind are good for the security or defence industry.
    This does not mean, the early reports out of Nigeria are false, but sometimes first reports later change. Remember, the story of the alleged unproven death of Osama Bin Laden, which changed several times? So, let us keep our fingers crossed and wait.

    duuhhh yeah you right, you sho is right, it happened last Christmas, and the last Muslim holiday just let folks just keep killing each other over religion while the white man laughs and takes the resources when the smoke clears!(?):confused:

    Some slaves told Harriett Tubman freedom was a pipe dream when she came to liberate them in the dark of the night.

    did they tell Kwame Nkhrumah, and Julius Nyere the same thing about Pan Africanism?

    That is deep cause I guess Minister Farakahn in Chicago and the Imam of Masjid A Taqwaa in Brooklyn, as well as 98% of the Black churches and Christians in this nation are not part of the globe you mention.

    So where you live do you see Muslims and Christians laughing about the death of other Muslims or Christians or do you see Black folks laughing at the death of other Black folks?

    Many here have regected in this United States both religions and in many cases religion all together and have replaced it or supplemented it with the celebration of Kwanzaa, based on ancient African traditional ethics and altruisitic actions

    the first day being Umoja-Unity!, therefore what is your opinion of Kwanzaa and the Nguzo Saba?

    As a matter of fact I have seen you complain about how people respond when you are not online or logged off, but I just noticed that you aren't in the list of people who are online, but it reads that one more person is here than is listed. Not a big deal unless you constantly complain about people responding to you when you are not here, don't hide, which is what you are doing right now.

    I don't have a hang up, I just see that you do less for Christianity than what you should. Like I said, all you do is complain, I don't agree with all posters, but I don't attack. You are wearing me thin, and I am a Christian, Kwanzaa as far as I am concerned is a substitution for Christmas, plain and simple. What I really want to talk to you about is not representing Christianity so bad.
