Book 11,2017: ‘The Chibok Girls,The Boko Haram Kidnappings and Islamist Militancy in Nigeria’ by Helon Habila.

A broken heart I had reading this book. The unbelievable atrocities and pain caused by an evil set of 'animals’ are brought to light in this book. This writer gives you an almost thorough insight into the families of the kidnapped girls.

The impact of this sect’s activities on a region and the country as a whole is clearly divulged in this book.

A tragedy happened when 276 girls were kidnapped from a school in Chibok.

Bring back our girls!

Never forget.

Weltanschauung!

Reality: The shooter killed four men and two women

Tumblr: The shooter killed six women! How dare you bring up men!


Reality: Boko Haram kidnapped and killed 10,000 boys. Boko Haram also kidnapped just under 300 girls

Tumblr: BRING BACK OUR GIRLS!


Reality: As of 2015, Rape has had a gendered definition that excludes female rapists and their male victims for more than half of the world’s population. 

Tumblr: With effort, the song Blurred Lines can be interpreted in an offensive way! RAPE CULTURE!


Do not let the Tumblr community tell you that men do not have issues or laugh at you when you bring up male victims. They are so quick to turn a blind eye to male victims that they don’t even consider seeing what is right in front of them. They are blind to anyone who isnt the right kind of victim.

82 Chibok schoolgirls released in Nigeria
Eighty-two Chibok schoolgirls have been released in Nigeria after successful negotiations between Boko Haram and the government, a government official said.
By Stephanie Busari and Kelly McCleary, CNN

Stephanie Busari and Kelly McCleary at CNN:

Eighty-two Chibok schoolgirls have been released after successful negotiations between the terrorist group Boko Haram and the Nigerian government, according to a government official close to the negotiations.

The source, who is not authorized to speak on the record about the release, told CNN the freed girls are in military custody in Banki, a town in northeast Nigeria.

They will be transferred to the capital, Abuja, where they will have medical checks and be reunited with their families.

They are believed to be among the 276 girls, ages 16 to 18, forced from their beds by Boko Haram militants in the middle of the night in April 2014. 

The kidnapping from a boarding school in the town of Chibok sparked global outrage and the social media movement #BringBackOurGirls.

ISIS affiliate Boko Haram has been totally crushed, Nigerian government says

Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari said on Saturday that his country’s armed forces had crushed the last remaining stronghold of notorious terror group Boko Haram, driving the militants out of their “Camp Zero” in northern Sambisa Forest, USA Today reported. Boko Haram, which pledged allegiance to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria and stepped up coordination with the latter organization earlier this year, was founded in 2002 and launched a violent uprising in 2009. According to humanitarian organization Doctors Without Borders, as of late 2015, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees estimated the group’s rebellion had displaced nearly 1.4 million people.

anonymous asked:

why do you think boko haram is against western education

Firstly I’d like to make the point that the name “Boko Haram” isn’t actually the one the group used to describe themselves and was given by others. Boko Haram opposes many things and western education simply falls under the belief that anything of western origin and influence from clothing, language, ideology, government and society is sinful, it’s main objective is to form a caliphate over all of Nigeria and extend it throughout the Sahel and west Africa. Any focus on western education is overstated.

Why I think they’re against it? Since they’re against everything remotely western I would expect “western” education to be one as well. Their ideology shifts and gets augmented but I think the distrusts for anything western is a core part of their belief because it is part of the reason they were able to gain their initial followers and support and it is something that was very strong in north eastern Nigeria (where the group originates) before and after independence. There was a similar group before them called “Yan tatsine” who followed a man called “Maitatsine” (The one who damns in Hausa).

Only going to say it once

I have to say that I am both disappointed and not surprised at Tumblr’s reaction and constant bitching about Chris Kyle, his book, and the movie adaptation.

It’s a crock of shit having to constantly see Chris’ name slandered by a bunch of ignorant, extremist liberal, children who don’t understand the sacrifices and decisions we service members down range have to make. Until you’ve deployed, and until you’ve faced those split-second life or death decisions, you do not have any sort of right to drag Chris Kyle’s name through the mud. Chris Kyle saved so many service members, both in Iraq and back home here in the states.

Had Chris Kyle acted outside of his ROE, not only would you have learned his name much longer ago (because it would be on every news outlet), but he would also be still alive and sitting on his ass in Fort Leavenworth Military Prison. But Chris was a trained professional with phenomenal trigger discipline, who knew the difference between a hostile target and an innocent civilian.

Yes, even that little boy and his mother were hostile targets. Why? The minute you pick up any sort of weapon and point it at US forces, you immediately become a hostile. If you start firing a weapon (or in this case tossing a grenade) at a patrolling platoon in a street, you WILL be killed. You are a threat.

Al Qaeda, Boko Haram, ISIS, Taliban, Al Nusra, and every other terrorist organization are the free world’s enemies. Anyone who sides with them, or helps them, is an enemy.

If you hate America so much, take your happy asses and get out. I’m pissed that I signed away my life to people who are so disgustingly un-patriotic and ungrateful for the sacrifices made for them to sit on this website and cry about everything.

Chris Kyle is a hero. Suck on that.

Boko Haram releases video showing kidnapped Nigerian girls

Terrorist group Boko Haram released a video Sunday, allegedly showing both alive and dead women who were kidnapped in Chibok, Nigeria, in April 2014. More than 270 girls were abducted at the time, sparking the #BringBackOurGirls campaign. In the new video, Boko Haram proposes an exchange for the kidnapped women.

#BringBackOurGirls: The Nigerian army has freed 300 women and girls from Boko Haram, but none appear to be the abducted "Chibok girls."

We’re hopeful that this win will lead to freedom for the now infamous girls who were kidnapped a year ago.

LIKE this story to keep the spotlight on the “Chibok girls” until they are found and freed.

Wie man eine Waffe hält

2000, irgendwo in Weißrussland. Ich bin sechs, meine Hose ist mittlerweile mehr braun als rosa vor Erde, mein Haar ist lang. Gerade dresche ich mit der Spielzeugpistole auf meinen besten Freund ein, damit er mich nicht mehr an meinen langen Haaren zieht. Mein bester Freund hat gesagt, ich wüsste nicht, wie man eine Waffe hält - weil ich ein Mädchen bin. Eine Frau geht an uns vorbei. Sie hält ein Mädchen an der Hand, ihr Haar ist lang, ihr Kleid ist rosa. Die Frau schaut uns, schaut nur mich an und rümpft die Nase.

Zu Hause liest meine Oma mir Geschichten vor, von tapferen Prinzen und schönen Prinzessinnen.

2007, irgendwo in Deutschland, ich bin 13. Erste Stunde, Sport, Umkleidekabine. Die anderen Mädchen sind so schön wie Prinzessinnen, mit Glitzerzahnspangen anstatt von Kronen, denke ich, darf ich aber nicht sagen. Ich hoffe, mein Busen wird irgendwann groß genug sein für einen BH (Spoiler-Alarm: wird er nicht). Zweite Stunde, Mathe, die Jungs haben eine der Prinzessinnen gerade “Speckbarbie” genannt, die Jungs lachen, die Prinzessin nicht. In den Naturwissenschaften melden wir uns selten, antworten immer mit einem fragenden Unterton.

2016. Ich bin 22, ich studiere ein naturwissenschaftliches Fach, ich rauche, ich bin tätowiert, mein Haar ist kurz. Ich lebe in einem Land, dessen Staatschefin ebenfalls kurze Haare und ein naturwissenschaftliches Fach studiert hat, und wer weiß, vielleicht ist sie sogar tätowiert. Ich habe ihre Oberarme nie gesehen, vielleicht hat sie da einen Anker. Ich trage einen Push-Up-BH und sitze in einem Café, das ich mir nicht leisten kann, zusammen mit Prinzessinnen, die sagen, dass es Privilegien nicht gibt, dass man keine Quote braucht, weil sie ja noch nie irgendwo benachteiligt wurden, und ich will -

eine Frau sein, so eine richtige, eine, deren Hüft- und Brust- und Taillenumfang im idealen Verhältnis zueinander stehen, eine, die 50€ im Monat für Kosmetik und Hautpflegeprodukte ausgibt, eine, die irgendwann heiraten und Kinder haben möchte und den Gedanken daran schön und nicht furchterregend findet, eine, die keine Angst hat.

Ich will eine dünne Frau sein, ich will so dünn sein, dass ich in Zwangsjacken von Chanel passe.

Ich will eine schöne Frau sein, damit ich mir nicht mehr anhören muss, was ich doch für einen tollen Charakter habe, denn ich habe ihn nicht.

Ich will ein Uhrwerk anstatt eines Herzens, das man ausschalten kann, das aber nie aufhört zu funktionieren.

Ich halte meine Kaffeetasse mit gespreiztem kleinem Finger und wünschte, ich wüsste, wie man eine Waffe hält.

Ich bin wütend und die Prinzessinnen fragen mich, wieso ich denn so wütend bin, ich hätte doch alles, und ich, ich -

- bin 34, irgendwo in Deutschland, meine Kinder sind zwei und drei Jahre alt, ich gehe arbeiten, damit ich meine Kinder in die KiTa schicken kann, damit ich arbeiten gehen kann, ich würde gerne ein naturwissenschaftliches Fach studieren. Prinzessinnen schreiben in Kolumnen, dass es nur eine Frage des Selbstbewusstseins ist, mehr Geld zu bekommen, man muss nur fragen, es ist so einfach, so einfach, so einfach, und ich werde wütend, und man fragt mich, warum ich so wütend bin, ich hätte doch alles, und ich wünschte, ich wüsste, wie man eine Waffe hält -

- bin 20, irgendwo in Weißrussland, und im zweiten Monat schwanger. Ich würde gerne ein naturwissenschaftliches Fach studieren, doch das Geld reicht nicht, und ich wäre gerne zusammen mit einer schönen Prinzessin, das darf ich aber nicht sagen, nicht einmal denken, stattdessen bin ich verlobt mit einem tapferen Prinzen. Und ich werde wütend, und man fragt mich, warum ich so wütend bin, ich hätte doch alles, und ich wünschte, ich wüsste, wie man eine Waffe hält -

- am thirty-four, somewhere in a small town in Indiana, the year is 2017. I am standing outside the Planned Parenthood center, but not too close, so that the crowds don’t soil the already tainted vessel of my body with pig’s blood and I have a lump in my breast I have a lump in my throat because this is the world I live in this is the fucking west-world I live in this is the constant state of terror I live in and I am angry and the men in my family at my job in my government tell me to suck it up, princess, and they ask me how I can be angry because I have everything I wanted and I wish, I wish I knew how to hold a weapon -

- bin 14, irgendwo in Nigeria, niemand weiß, wo genau, es ist 2014. Mein Haar ist kurz, damit niemand daran ziehen kann, man hat mir gezeigt, wie man eine Waffe hält. Ich bin wütend. Ich werde hier rauskommen, ich werde ihnen die Zähne vor die Füße spucken, die sie mir ausschlagen, ich werde leben, weil ich ein Mädchen ich ein mensch bin ich ein Mensch bin.

I’m laughing because well knowed newspapers and news networks used the terms “bloggers”, “activists”, “social justice warriors” more often to de-legitimate them, meanwhile they informed me about:

  • Ferguson 
  • Syrian Refugees
  • chinese activists disappereance
  • Orlando
  • Aleppo
  • Ni una Menos
  • Poland women’s right march
  • Flint
  • Philippines’ president Duterte
  • Standing Rock protest
  • and Boko Haram nigerian massacre

faster and better (and sometimes were the only ones), and with more accurancy and proofs that said newspapers and news networks did. 

So how about, instead, @well knowed newspapers and news networks, you examine yourself, your ethic, your morals, the present and your work, and start doing what should be YOUR  FRICKING JOB?!?
