The Jihad is a global mosaic, of which different regional jihads are the ostensibly separate tiles, all together realizing over time a unified, pan-Islamic tesseration. The ultimate goal, of course, being the submission of the entire world to Allah and His Prophet -- through submission, by indefinite proxy, to Muslim rule.
The global Jihad is also diverse, disparate, and often seemingly disunited -- a complex of data which causes those who have PC MC reflexes to miss the jungle for the trees and dismiss an underlying & overarching unity.
This report on one outbreak of that global Jihad (Boko Haram in West Africa) by FSSPX.NEWS -- the communication agency of the Priestly Society of St. Pius X -- is brief, but should alarm anyone who hasn't had their hearts & minds deformed by PC MC (Politically Correct Multi-Culturalism).
On September 17, 2014, during the Nigerian Bishops’ Conference in Warri, Bishop Oliver Dashe Doeme, bishop of Maiduguri, capital of the State of Borno, made a list of the progress of the armed Islamic group Boko Haram. The northeast of Nigeria is partially under Boko Haram’s control, declared the bishop, pointing out that in one month, ten cities of the state of Yobe, ten of the state of Borno, and five in Adamawa have fallen into the hands of the radical Islamist rebels, who demand the creation of a caliphate in the region. “As a nation, we have almost lost this battle, because the situation is out of control,” stated Bishop Doeme.
Boko Haram’s progress threatens to make the Nigerian government lose control of the whole region bordered by Cameroon, Chad and Niger. In a communication sent to the agency Fides, the bishop of Maiduguri -- whose diocese includes the States of Borno, Yobe and a part of the State of Adamawa, where Boko Haram is very present – declared that the destruction accomplished by the Islamist sect over the last month can be compared to that of the so-called Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. “Thousands of people have been obliged to take refuge in caves, mountains and forests, or to flee to Cameroon and live in miserable conditions.” Every day many leave their country: “We expect the number of fugitives to the three neighboring countries to reach 95,000 before the end of the year,” warned Babar Baloch, spokesman for the High Commissariat of the UN for refugees (HCR), in Geneva.
Bishop Doeme insisted on the sophisticated arms the Islamist group has obtained over the last few months -- tanks, anti-tank and anti-aircraft weapons, huge quantities of ammunition -- and accused the military of remaining “lukewarm” in the face of the threat the sect represents. And he added: “we can be afraid, we can remain silent and unable to speak of a plan that aims to Islamize the north of Nigeria or all of Nigeria, (but) what we are seeing at present in the north of Adamawa is a clear confirmation that such is their goal,” concluded Bishop Doeme.
Father Patrick Tor Alumuku, director of the Social Communications of the archdiocese of Abuja, confided to the agency Fides that “even the Nigerians who supported Boko Haram can no longer control the group; it has become an international movement, emancipated itself from its Nigerian sponsors, and risks becoming a problem for all of western Africa.” The press, he added, has denounced the financial support that Boko Haram has found in the ranks of the president’s own party, in order to insinuate that the head of State is not able to ensure the safety of the population. “All because President Goodluck Jonathan is a Christian from the south and his internal opposition are Muslims from the north who do not want him to run again in the 2015 presidential elections,” explained Fr. Tor Alumuku. “However, even if the Muslims won the elections, they would no longer be able to control Boko Haram, for the sect has become an international organization, connected with other jihadist movements, including the Somalian Shabaabs and the so-called Islamic State in Iraq and Syria,” he added. “Boko Haram has proclaimed a caliphate in the zones under its control in the north of Nigeria, and I do not think that they will give this caliphate up just because a Muslim becomes president of Nigeria.
What began as a fire in the north of Nigeria thus risks becoming a huge blaze in the heart of Africa,” concluded the spokesman for the archdiocese of Abuja. During the Ad Limina visit of the bishops of Cameroon to the Vatican on September 6, 2014, Pope Francis asked them to develop a “dialogue of life with the Muslims in a spirit of mutual trust,” for this dialogue “is indispensable today in order to maintain a climate of peaceful cohabitation” and “to discourage the development of violence of which Christians are the victims”… Cameroon, which is 20% Muslim, is particularly, in the north, under the influence of the Islamist sect Boko Haram, located in neighboring Nigeria. How much longer can we impose upon the atrociously persecuted Christians the mirage of a dialogue from the paneled offices of the Vatican? The Syriac Catholic Patriarch Younan, answers: “Dialogue does not stop the extremists...” (Sources: apic/fides/afp/unhcr/imedia – DICI no.302 dated October 10, 2014).

It also takes a trained eye (trained from years of autodidactic investigation into this problem to make up for the dereliction of duty on the part of our education system and our MSM) to see dots that call for connection.
“Bishop Doeme insisted on the sophisticated arms the Islamist group has obtained over the last few months -- tanks, anti-tank and anti-aircraft weapons, huge quantities of ammunition...”
That indicates support from other Muslim groups, support from zakat (the "charity tax" all Muslims are supposed to pay which time and time again has been found to support various jihads around the world) and, last but not least: support from other Muslim countries. This last includes no doubt our "staunch ally" Saudi Arabia -- if not perhaps also Egypt under the "moderate" Al-Sisi following in the footsteps of his great predecessor, the "secular nationalist" Nasser who, during the Biafra crisis (known by Western media as the "Nigerian civil war" but of course really one more jihad in a relentless series of jihads going back centuries) of the late 1960s, when Egypt assisted the terrorism of the Nigerian mujahideen against Christians of the region by sending the Egyptian air force to strafe the already terrorized Christian people.
Another dot to connect:
Bishop Doeme ... accused the military of remaining “lukewarm” in the face of the threat the sect represents.
That's the military of the Christian part of Nigeria (no doubt infiltrated, as the West is, by “moderate” Muslims -- "Muslims from the north" -- including the sinister problem noted by Bishop Doeme's fellow Christian, Father Alumukui, mentioning that:
The press... has denounced the financial support that Boko Haram has found in the ranks of the president’s own party...
This is echoed indirectly by what Bishop Doeme says immediately afterwards:
“...we can be afraid, we can remain silent and unable to speak of a plan that aims to Islamize the north of Nigeria or all of Nigeria...”
No doubt he is referring to a common tendency of timidity to the insidious advance of Islam within its society which is also prevalent throughout the West in the form of PC MC, and among so many non-Muslims throughout the Muslim world in the form of dhimmitude -- both perhaps based in a kind of protracted PTSD (Post-Traumatic/Terrorized Stress Disorder).
We then, as we continue our dot-connection exercise, detect this PTSD linked up in later parts of this report, when another Nigerian Christian, Father Patrick Tor Alumuku is solicited for his observations:
“...even the Nigerians who supported Boko Haram can no longer control the group; it has become an international movement, emancipated itself from its Nigerian sponsors, and risks becoming a problem for all of western Africa.”
“However, even if the Muslims won the elections, they would no longer be able to control Boko Haram...”
These assumptions from Father Alumuku imply a belief in Muslims who do not desire to enable Boko Haram, presumably because they don't believe in Boko Haram's perfectly Islamic aims. Paradoxically, this supposed majority of Moderate Muslims in the region who are supposed to oppose Boko Haram -- even the ones who (in the past tense) "supported Boko Haram" -- can no longer control Boko Haram's aggrandizement. We see Father Alumuku indulging the same kind of assumption so many Westerners do, that the jihadists-cum-terrorists who are metastasizing around the world somehow cannot be controlled by the supposed vast majority of Moderate Muslims; never pausing to wonder if this does not indicate the paradigm of a supposed vast majority of Moderate Muslims isn't fundamentally flawed. Particularly when we factor in the first dot we noted above -- the remarkable ability by the putatively Tiny Minority of Extremists to acquire large quantities of sophisticated military materiél. Not to mention what the good Father noticed about the "Muslims from the north" who are supposedly disunited from Boko Haram:
“... President Goodluck Jonathan is a Christian from the south and his internal opposition are Muslims from the north who do not want him to run again in the 2015 presidential elections...”
