"As a result of historic missionary activity and indigenous Christian movements by Africans, there has been this change from about one in 10 (sub-Saharan Africans) identifying with Christianity in 1910 to about six in 10 doing so today," Hackett said.

Notice that Christianity is growing at an amazing pace in Africa. Let's not be all doom and gloom, especially in this season.

Pay attention to Somalia and Ethiopia (even northern Kenya.) Militant Muslims are making noise there, too.

They never give up!

Instead of erradicating this terrorist threat , the US spent all its resources on ousting Sadam in Irag who had nothing to do with Al Qaeda as a matter if fact Al Qaeda and militant islamists did not exist in Irag, Syria, Egypt or Lybia but will not run rampant killing and terrorizing the whole of the middle east.

I don't think Heidi's contention that Christian missionaries will combat Al Qaeda is good reason to support Christian missionaries. The world world be better off without all religious propaganda.

Thanks Cal for the link to the article by Farron Cousins. Sad situation the 3,300 soldiers proposed by the Economic Community of West Africa States would be able to accomplish very little if anything. Read and sadly noted.

Noted... Education and opportunity, two things that can help stem terrorism. Wars have only given Al Qaeda more soldiers.
