Africa and Israel Share a Common Enemy in Radical Islam

Global terror attacks dating from 9/11, London, France, Belgium, Kenya, Pakistan and the ongoing Boko Haram in Nigeria as well as many other wars across many nations of the world all point to a similar source, Islam.  In the wake of the European migrant crisis the door has been opened to a new wave of terrorism that can affect most countries in Europe.

According to the demographer Michèle Tribalat, there are about 20 million Muslims in Europe, with some 5 million of them in France. This amounts to roughly 8% of the population of France. The USA, UK, and Germany have 5% respectively.

Both the Charlie Hebdo along with another attack at a Paris kosher market days later, was carried out by French Muslims that were North African and West African Migrants. Well before the attacks, which left 17 dead, the French were discussing the possibility that tensions with the country’s own Muslim community were leading France toward some kind of armed confrontation.  Europeans would have never handled such a massive in flux of Muslim migrants at any other moment in their generally xenophobic history. The movement of Muslim migrants coincided with a collapse in European birthrates, which has given the current immigration a nearly unstoppable momentum.  With the rise of modern political Islam, which injected Islam with a radical ethos, the migration crisis has now become a threat to world peace.

How can it be Curbed?

There has long been a growing political relationship between the Israeli government and most sub-saharan African countries. In these ties lie the solution and shield against the scourge of radical Islam.  Those African countries at war with radical Islam have found Israel to be an experienced and reliable partner. Beyond security, Israel is seen as an ally with little historic baggage and with little interest in undermining the sovereignty of African nations.

The ties between African-Israeli relations can be traced back to the dying embers of colonialism in the mid-1950s. This was followed by a formal recognition of relations through the establishment of official channels. One example is the setting up of the Israeli Embassy in Accra, Ghana in 1956.

From the beginning of its inception, Israel’s own war against Arab nationalism made it a necessity to search elsewhere for partners. Israel being encircled by hostile Arab countries gave it the impetus to build relationships with the newly independent African countries (as well as in Iran at that time). It is important to note that Israel’s motives to provide aid to Africa were driven by ideology, as opposed to the post-colonial guilt motives of the British and other nations.

In the 1970s due to many anti-Israel votes cast by African nations at UN-Conferences, Israel’s political motives moved from being ideological to pragmatic. Israel began to target only African countries where it had clear strategic or economic interests the Israeli presence grew at a fast pace.

The nature of African-Israeli relations has been determined by key changes in the global geopolitical arena. After the burden of colonialism had been lifted off African shoulders, Israel embarked on establishing diplomatic missions based on a twofold policy of diplomacy and technical cooperation.

Is Nigeria the Only Country Where Idiots Rule?

For over four decades now, another  Nigeria-Biafra war has been looming.  These two entities, forced together by the British in 1914 have increasingly moved towards direct confrontation for the first time since 1970.

Over time the Nigerian government has become comprised of mainly Muslim participants from the North whose occupations are mainly cattle herders with little or no education.  These Muslims served in the Nigerian military, which adds to their inability to govern correctly and institute sound economic policies.  The world has begun to label Nigeria “the only country where idiots rule.”

The Oxford English Dictionary defines genocide as “the deliberate and systematic extermination of an ethnic or national group …” The UN general assembly also defined it in 1946 as “… a denial of the right of existence of entire human groups”.  Biafrans have consistently charged that the Nigerian government has in fact always had a design to exterminate the Igbos of Biafra.

In recent times their sole aim has been focused on exterminating Biafrans, made up of mostly Christians with Hebraic roots and those who have rejoined the Jewish Nation  Biafrans control some of the most fertile grazing lands and oil reserves in Nigeria.  

The current attacks on Biafra have been traced to the government supported Hausa/Fulani herdsmen  who are actually full members of the Islamist Boko Haram.  According to Article 2 of the 1948 UN Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of Genocide-to which the US and all current members of the UN Security Council are party to, genocide encompasses not only the deliberate killing of members of a “national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such,” but also “deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part.” Both clauses are occurring in Biafra region in Nigeria right now.

This situation was premeditated by mainly Islamic extremists within the Nigerian army.  These elements have been looking to the turn the heat up. Since protests broke out we have seen the systematic killing of innocent and unarmed civilians by the Nigerian military.  Despite the fact  that the army chief has admitted that his men indeed killed Biafrans indiscriminately as we have witnessed in Aguta, Aba, Enugu, Igweocha, little or nothing has been done by the  Buhari government to bring the attackers to justice.

Biafrans are still waiting for world leaders and lovers of democracy and freedom to step in and protect civilians who have suffered loss of life, confiscations and destruction of properties.  The agenda is clear.  The Arab and Islamic world is pushing for Nigeria to become a full member of the Islamic world.

Evidence of another genocide

Biafra has now become the headquarters of a military battalion set up in order to kill innocent young men and women and even children who seek self-governance.   These people strive for better lives due to decades of marginalization from previous and current governments. This has been reported by numerous human rights groups like HURIWA which have made it clear that the Buhari regime’s genocidal intent is beyond the pale of acceptable civilized behavior.

The international community must act and act swiftly to avert another civil war.  This time, an explosive war pitting the Judeo-Christian Biafra against the Radical Islamic movement that has overtaken Nigeria has the potential to become a wider regional war than the previous conflict which occurred over 45 years ago.

Time is of the essence.

Nigeria is a Sinking Ship

From East to West, North to South the Biafran conflict is heating up globally. The Biafran war, fought between Nigeria and Biafra from the years 1967-1970 has been recorded as the most brutal civil war any black Nation has ever witnessed. With the help of the British, innocent young people, mostly women and children numbering close to 6 million lost their lives.

The leadership the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has infused  a new spirit into the struggle for self-determination.This spirit has awoken from its slumber the drive to  exhibit the  fundamental human right under the rule of law to protest the Buhari lead Administration.  This Nigerian government has unleashed terror on the innocent citizens who are seeking a better life and good governance for their children and future generation.

Scores have been killed by the Department of State Security (DSS), including those shot by the combination of both military and police personnel.  Despite Amnesty International being aware of these  heinous crimes, the United Nations lead by Ban Ki-Moon and world leaders have kept quiet.  Nigerian security forces continue to kill Biafrans in secret, attacking street vendors who sell newspapers with anything concerning Biafra.  The Buhari led government has even destroyed Coca-cola customized products and their warehouses that were made especially for Biafra awareness.

Is Nigeria meant to be democratic or an autocracy?

The Nigerian state is presently suffering from governmental incompetence, human rights abuses, and a lack of justice for the ordinary man. Ironically the government’s policies have backfired. Buhari believes the killing of unarmed innocent civilians will subdue the struggle. Yet by attacking and jailing Nnamdi Kanu they have ended up making him the most influential personality of the century.  The struggle for self-determination of the people of Biafra has now become a global one.

The crux of the issue now is convincing those who think the Biafran protests are merely a mirage that they should wake up from and face the new reality that there is no going back.  The message to the world must be clear that the level of insecurity that Nigerian government operates in, is total. We don’t want what happened in 1967-1970 to happen again. Despite the Biafran willingness  to lead a peaceful struggle, how long shall we fold our arms and watch our citizen been killed in cold blood?

“I will lead a 500,000000 Million man march that will crack Nigeria globally!” Those were the words of the brave Biafraian and we are getting close to it. Both local and International media, organizations, world leaders are now getting up to see the injustice that has been meted out to the people of Biafra by the central authorities in Buhari’s so called Nigeria.

Considering where we began, much has been achieved and yet more needs to be done.  There is no going back on Biafran independence. There is a deep lack of credibility in Nigeria concerning the independence of the judiciary system.  This has added to the ordinary citizen lacking any confidence in all aspects of the government’s relationship with the broader society. We have all seen this in the ongoing case of Nnamdi Kanu the Leader of the Indigenous people of Biafra and the Nigerian government.

The Mohammed Buhari lead Administration has taken the whole pf Nigeria for granted and it is very imperative to remind him that he can’t eat his cake and have it also.  It is not going to be like those days when he refused to appear before a tribunal on charges corruption.

We call on all well-meaning lovers of freedom especially the Israeli government to take a stand and look into the issue of Biafra and Nigeria’s Christians in order to help lead them to freedom from the oppression of the Islamic state of Mohammed Buhari.
