Boko Haram And The Real War On Women

A Wife In Nigeria For $12 A Head
If ever we needed an excuse to declare war on Islamic fanatics, it has been put on a silver platter
Another callous example of a War on Women that really does matter
Worse, this War on Women has an outrageous Christian twist
In the jihad universe, Christians must convert or lose their right to exist
Islam in Nigeria is waging a war because Western education for females is a sin
Make no mistake; this is a wake up call to a war we must win
In Chibok, fanatics abducted over 300 girls from a rural school and now threaten to sell
If there is an Allah and Islam is of the Book, Boko Haram’s members need to be droned to hell
What kind of world allows a jihadist to sell females as human goods at 12 dollars a head
One can only wonder what acts must be taken for such ideas to be shed
One can only wonder what kind of man would a young girl for a wife buy
Ideas of love, romance, partnership to ignore,  discard and deny
Why in the Muslim world, the mosques the sounds of silence rule?
Where is the outrage over abduction of these girls from school?
Where are the mullahs announcing to these fanatics the gates to Paradise are now closed?
Unless and until they do the right thing and let these young women go
One can only hope that in Abuja, the government is serious about rescuing these teens
Where in the Sharia world are the abduction protests as Islam these acts cheapen and demean?
At last the civilized world has a name and most likely many a  face
Time for this leader and his followers  to be sent on a one way on a closed “Paradise” race
While we  may react with force
Another suggestion to help change the course
Nigeria exports 2,000,000 barrels of oil each and every day
Yet the revenues line the pockets of officials and poverty seem not to allay
With a Keystone XL in place, we could refuse to buy Nigerian crude
Unless profits went to agriculture and  economic growth which from the oil should have ensued
If you live in poverty and with nothing left to lose, no way out of despair
No wonder the young men Chibok seek the virgins while firing AK-47s into the air.
