    Default Nigeria's 'Taliban' enigma

    Perhaps this explains why so many christian Nigerians are coming here?

    They have launched co-ordinated attacks across northern Nigeria, threatening to overthrow the government and impose strict Islamic law - but who exactly are the Nigerian Taliban?
    Since the group emerged in 2004 they have become known as "Taliban", although they appear to have no links to the Taliban in Afghanistan.
    Some analysts believe they took inspiration from the radical Afghans, others say the name is more a term of ridicule used by people in Maiduguri, the area where they were founded.




    The group's other name, Boko Haram, means "Western education is a sin" and is another title used by local people to refer to the group.
    Full story here and here.
    If you continue to elect idiots in elections, don't be surprised when the result is an idiotic government.

    Boko Haram means "education is a sin". These savages think the only education is constant Koran classes. The Nigerian police seem to have gotten a bit tougher on them in recent weeks which is to be commended.

    Oil........ always oil, and I dare say the 100 or so deaths in Nigeria during the Danish cartoon protests can also be put down to "oil"........somehow.
