Hot off the wires

Hot off the news wires from two days ago:
Suspected militants from Islamist group Boko Haram shot dead 29 farm workers as they tilled their fields in remote northeast Nigeria, a police source said on Thursday, amid a mounting insurgency increasingly targeting civilians.

The attackers destroyed most of the village of Chukku Nguddoa and wounded another 10 people on Wednesday, said the police source in Borno state, the heart the revolt that is piling political pressure on the government.

Boko Haram, which grabbed world headlines last month by kidnapping more than 200 schoolgirls further north in Borno, has stepped up its five-year-old campaign to carve an Islamic state out of the religiously mixed oil producer.

U.S. liberal:  "That's ridiculous!  You can't possibly believe that!  I mean, no one would stoop to shooting unarmed farmers working in their fields.  That's just not reasonable.  You saw that on Faux News, right?"

Guess again, cupcake:  It was from Reuters--an outfit that's always been pro-Muslim and pro-Left.

But libs will keep believing that a) Islam is really a peaceful religion; and b) in any case, Boko Haram doesn't really represent "real" Islam.
