The media was right to report on and condemn the horrific attacks on two Mosques in New Zealand. That said, the ongoing massacres of Christians deserve attention as well.
Since February of 2019, Fualani Militants (a majority Muslim group in Nigeria), have killed over 120 Nigerian Christians.
Here is part of a Christian Post report on the massacres:
“The curfew comes as there have been a string of recent attacks against communities within the predominantly Christian Adara chiefdom of southern Kaduna.
On Monday, 52 people were killed, dozens injured and around 143 homes were destroyed in attacks on the villages of Inkirimi, Dogonnoma and Ungwan Gora in the Maro district of the Kajuru Local Government Area, according to Christian Solidarity Worldwide.
The Monday attack followed an attack on Sunday in the Ungwan Barde village in Kajuru in which 17 people were killed and dozens of homes were burned.
In late February, there was another attack in Maro that resulted in the deaths of about 38 Christians and saw homes and a church burned. On Feb. 10, 10 people were killed in an attack in Ungwan Barde as six others were killed in isolated attacks the day before.
CSW, a United Nations-recognized NGO that advocates for persecuted Christians worldwide, reports that victims in the attacks on Monday included women and children. Survivors told the nonprofit that the attackers were separated into three groups. One group shot and killed people, the second set fire to buildings, and a third ran after people fleeing the scene.”
Additionally, “In 2018 alone, thousands of Christians were killed by militant Fulani herdsmen, leaving some to say that genocide is occurring in the Middle Belt of Nigeria.”
Most establishment media outlets have not mentioned this, nor have they mentioned that Christians are the most oppressed religious minority on Earth.
Clearly, the media was right to report on and condemn the vile terrorist attack against two Mosques in New Zealand.
Yet, the massacres of Christians also deserves attention. Violence against all faiths should be condemned, and Christians facing violence and death for their faith need help and support.
The establishment should not be ignoring some crisis while paying attention to others. The hypocrisy must come to an end.
