Report: More than 60 girls escaped Boko Haram Friday

Dozens Of Abducted Girls Reportedly Escape Boko Haram


CNN reports that 63 girls and women being held hostage by Nigerian terrorist organization Boko Haram managed to escape Friday, reportedly taking advantage of a 'rare opportunity' that is believed to have been created by an insurgent seize.

Nigerian newspaper This Day Live says, "It is believed that the siege by the insurgents on military and security facilities last Friday in Damboa might have presented the women with an opportunity to flee from their abductors."

Background:

In a series of village raids in June, Boko Haram kidnapped more than 60 women and girls and 30 boys, according to The Guardian. That's in addition to the 200 school girls they took hostage in April.

There are estimated to be more than 650,000 refugees in Nigeria because of Boko Haram's attacks.

If 60 girls can escape these clowns, how hard can it be to wipe them out? Who's on guard duty, some blind crackhead?

Although I am thrilled the women and girls made the escape, we all know they will never truly be "out of danger". If Boko Haram exists, the threat exists.
I'm waiting for the circus clown group (aka Obama administration) to take credit for the women's "escape" due to the big "Hashtag Push" they did about a month ago...after all, nothing scares an Islamic terrorist group more than a "Hashtag".

"How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries, improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live.


A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement, the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.

Individual Muslims may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it.

No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism

How do we know these Negros were really "abducted"............and by whom? Tribalism is prevalent in Africa and most if not all of these Negro woman are probably quite happy now with their new Chieftain.
