If you watched the BBC tonight, you will have seen the whipping up of hate against Islamists by our own revered Prime Minister in Parliament today. 275 girls have been taken by Islamist Boko Haram, who has threatened to sell the girls into slavery. This IS a horrible thing – shameful indeed and my heart goes out to the families entangled in it. But, Nigeria, the world is coming to your rescue.
Quote – “United Nations human rights spokesman Rupert Colville warned Tuesday that selling the schoolgirls into slavery could constitute a crime against humanity, adding that those responsible could face prosecution.”
Many hideous things have gone on in Africa. They have hardly ever even appeared in the media. I don’t know if anyone has ever done much. Who much cared?
Something smells fishy to me.
So, I ask. Why such hype now?
