More than 1,000 Nigerians have fled to neighbouring Niger after six people were killed in an attack on their village blamed on Islamist group Boko Haram, the United Nations said Thursday.

The 1,042 refugees crossed the northern border into the Niger region of Diffa after the November 30 attack, and have been taken in by families in two villages near the regional capital, the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said in a bulletin.

A teacher in the village confirmed the attack to local media. He said the attackers told villagers they were looking for "politicians" and "coldly killed" six people, including a police officer, after the victims were unable to recite verses of the Koran.

A security source said Niger's army has deployed reinforcements along its border with Nigeria, a focus of worry for Nigerien authorities who have often assured they are taking measures to stop Boko Haram's activities from spilling over into Niger.

Violence linked to the Boko Haram insurgency in Nigeria -- a country roughly divided between a mainly Muslim north and a predominantly Christian south -- is believed to have left some 3,000 people dead there since 2009, including killings by the security forces.

Jihad is savage. Can't recite verses from the Koran? Well then, obviously these people should be killed. This is how the Islamist mind works. Killing's okay, if you're furthering Islam.

Islam is a curse.

Islam is religion of evil. I am totally unable to understand anyone who believes that it is based on love and peace. It may have been once but there were not enough followers for Shaitan (Mohammed) who became a bandit.

I have heard that he had syphillis and it would certainly explain some of his behaviour.

This just keeps going on and on and where is the outrage?! If someone threatens to burn a Qur'an - a bloody book - the press and world leaders scream in outrage and Muslims riot in the streets burning and killing, but every day Christians and Buddhists are being ethnically cleansed in virtually every Muslim dominated land and not a word from Obama or Cameron or church leaders or the NY Times or the UN et al.

The silence is deafening, even here on Care 2 which claims to care so much about human rights - just not non-Muslim ones it seems.

Thanks for pointing this out.

So many days I feel like Alice after falling down the rabbit hole and entering a world where nothing is what it is made out to be. So much like this planet.

Beth, you described perfectly Islam's oxymoronic stance. I just have to copy and paste what you wrote because it is so succinct and correct:

"Jihad is savage. Can't recite verses from the Koran? Well then, obviously these people should be killed. This is how the Islamist mind works. Killing's okay, if you're furthering Islam.

Islam is a curse."

Quran (3:151) – “Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers. . .”

Quran (8:12) – “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them”

the dark world of islam
