Islamist Terrorist Incidents in Africa for 2017: Murder Of White Farmers

 The murder of white farmers in Africa, is linked to Islamic Terrorist. You will also find Saudi Arabia in Africa, and a conflict of stories. So why has Saudi Arabia not stopped the murders?

 The Africa Center for Strategic Studies (ACSS) has published a useful map of militant Islamist groups active in Africa. According to its review, the number of fatalities dropped in 2017, but the number of events associated with Islamist groups increased.

 The decline in total fatalities owes much to the decline in fatalities caused by Boko Haram, which nevertheless remains the most deadly terrorist operation in sub-Saharan Africa, and, as the ACSS concludes, shows the groups continuing resiliency. The ACSS numbers and those of other trackers, such as the Council’s Nigeria Security Tracker, tend to be similar, though are not exactly the same. Due to the shortage or unreliability of open-source data, these tools are indicative rather than definitive and likely understate the actual number of casualties (though not by that much).

 The ACSS map also illustrates an important reality. Though Islamist terrorism often dominates the headlines, there are really only three centers of it in sub-Saharan Africa: Somalia (with spill-over into Kenya), Mali (with spill-over into Burkina Faso), and the Lake Chad Basin (chiefly in Nigeria, but also in Niger, Cameroon, and Chad). The rest of sub-Saharan Africa—geographically an enormous region—is almost entirely free of it.

 Though from time to time there are reports of links between the three centers of militant Islamist activity, evidence of tactical or strategic cooperation is thin. The drivers in all three cases appear to be local. These terrorist groups often try to identify with the international claims of al-Qaeda and the Islamic state, but other than borrowed rhetoric and symbols, it does not seem to amount to much.

 The ACSS map also shows extensive Islamist activity in Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, and Egypt. Here, however, as in so many other areas, the Mediterranean littoral appears to be part of the Middle East, with little in common with sub-Saharan Africa. Al-Qaeda and the Islamic State are more international in their goals, and their activities in North Africa reflect and help shape what is happening in the Middle East.

 A question will be whether Islamist terrorism in the Mediterranean littoral will spill over into sub-Saharan Africa, and whether the limited exposure of sub-Saharan Islamist terrorism to al-Qaeda and the Islamic state will fundamentally transform them. Thus far, that has not happened, and sub-Saharan Islamist terrorism in Mali and the Lake Chad basin has attracted no recruits from outside the Sahel. Somalia, however, is different. Al-Shabaab has attracted fighters from among the Somali communities in the United States and elsewhere.

I found a video, a Black African man, stated that Africa has been taken over by Islamic Terrorist, this man became a Christian, he said that those that are now in control of Islam, are killing every last man woman and child that is Christian. He was punished for being a Christian.

 He also said American's need to stop being cowards or America is next. They will divide America through the politics, gain positions and organize millions of Muslims to take over this country as politicians. He also said do not trust those in office affiliated to progressive Islam.

SICK: Leprosy On The Rise In Los Angeles 

Ahh, the joys of open borders and Democrat leadership.

California is not just a public toilet but now there is evidence that leprosy is on the rise in Los Angeles County.

Barack Obama changed US law in 2016 and allowed immigrants with blistering STDs and leprosy to migrate to the US.

Medscape reported:

Leprosy, also known as Hansen’s disease, is rarely seen in the United States, but cases continue to emerge in Los Angeles County, a new report says.

“Hansen’s disease still exists, and we need to educate medical students and physicians,” coauthor Dr. Maria Teresa Ochoa from Keck Medical Center of the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, told Reuters Health by email.

Dr. Ochoa and colleagues identified 187 patients with the disease in a review of medical records from their leprosy clinic spanning 1973 to 2018. Most patients were Latino, originating from Mexico, and they experienced a median delay in diagnosis of more than three years, the team reports JAMA Dermatology, online August 7.

Multibacillary leprosy (MB) cases outnumbered paucibacillary leprosy (PB) cases by nearly eight to one (88.6% vs. 11.4%, respectively), and Latino patients were more likely than non-Latino patients to have MB, as were patients from Central or South America (versus other regions).

Most patients (80.7%) received multidrug therapy, and most (92.6%) received antibiotics for more than two years, especially if they had MB.

Only about half of patients (56.7%) had World Health Organization (WHO) grade 0 disability (no signs or symptoms suggestive of leprosy or disability) at the one-year follow-up, whereas 16.0% had grade 1 disability (loss of protective sensation) and 26.2% had grade 2 disability (visible deformity) at the last follow-up.

Among the patients who lost protective sensation, 87.7% (50/57) did not regain it following therapy.
