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.

Pay-Back !!! Pedophile Who Assaulted Nearly 200 Kids Stabbed To Death In Prison

A convicted pedophile who abused almost 200 children was stabbed to death in North Yorkshire, England, on Sunday.

Richard Huckle, 33, from Ashford, Kent, was given 22 life sentences in 2016 after he admitted to sexually abusing 71 kids whose ages ranged from six months to 12 years between 2006 and 2014, according to the BBC.

The report said Huckle was attacked with a makeshift knife while inside his cell at the Full Sutton Prison.

At the pedophile’s trial in 2016, investigators said they found over 20,000 indecent photos and videos of his assaults, which were shared with other pedophiles via a site on the dark web called The Love Zone.

Reports said that prior to his arrest, Huckle posed as an English teacher and Christian volunteer worker in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, where he groomed impoverished children.

In one of his online posts, Huckle reportedly wrote “Impoverished kids are definitely much easier to seduce than middle-class Western kids.”

Reports said he attempted to make money from his crimes by crowdfunding the release of the photos.

“Huckle also created a 60-page ‘how-to’ guide for other pedophiles seeking to evade being caught, and kept a scorecard and points system regarding the children who were abused — leading investigators to speculate he may have as many as 200 victims,” a Fox News report stated.

At his sentencing in 2016, Judge Peter Rook condemned Huckle for his heinous crimes he said had become routine for the pedophile.

Rook commented:

Your offending behavior became entrenched in your everyday life. Your life revolved around your sexual activities with young children. Your distorted beliefs in respect of children are deep-seated. Your self-delusion knows no bounds. It is also clear that, had you not been arrested, you planned to continue the same lifestyle using the expertise that you were keen to show off to and share with other abusers so as to continue your sexual exploitation of the children of such communities.

Reports said prior to his death, Huckle refused to cooperate with authorities when they tried to unlock a cache of encrypted files he had access to that may contain the names of victims and other pedophiles, according to Fox News.
