Africa’s most populous nation appears to have achieved a peaceful, historic transfer of power, and averted — at least for now — bloody civil war. But the Islamic terrorist group Boko Haram continues its attacks and Nigeria’s tenuous peace faces many challenges.
Marxist-Leninist Arab terrorist Leila Khaled, most infamous for hijacking a European airliner, is on tour in South Africa promoting boycotts and sanctions against the State of Israel. Among other controversial stops on her schedule, Khaled will speak to the veterans of the ruling African National Congress’ (ANC) terror wing, Umkhonto we Sizwe, which was led by admitted Communist Party leader Nelson Mandela at the height of its bloody Soviet-backed terror spree across Southern Africa. The hijacker’s tour has been well received among South Africa’s ruling establishment, which includes the ANC in a ruling alliance with the Communist Party (SACP) and a communist-dominated coalition of labor unions known as COSATU. However, Jewish groups, anti-terrorism activists, and elements of the increasingly embattled European-descent minority are starting to speak out.
As if to highlight for humanity the danger of the regional regimes proliferating across the world, ruthless Marxist dictator Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe — among the most brutal tyrants on a planet packed with despots — was selected to serve as chairman of the so-called African Union. While much of the world was horrified by the news, fellow African rulers and even United Nations boss Ban Ki-moon were celebrating the power transfer in Ethiopia’s Addis Ababa. The Zimbabwean tyrant said “climate change,” “development,” attacking Israel, “terrorism,” “gender equality,” and more would be among his top priorities as chief of the continental regime. The "former" terrorist even touted his ethnic cleansing and thievery masquerading as “land reform” as a model for Africa.
As outrage and unrest in Mali against the brutal United Nations military occupation grow stronger, UN troops responded to civilian protests this week by shooting and killing unarmed demonstrators, according to witnesses quoted in international media reports and a UN spokesman. While reports vary, at least three protesters were reportedly killed and many more wounded, with other sources reporting that even more civilians have been massacred by UN “peacekeepers” amid the recent unrest. In fact, as The New American reported in early 2013, UN-backed military forces in Mali have also been involved in widespread summary executions and mass human-rights abuses directed at the civilian population. Increasingly brutal UN forces have also been implicated in atrocities — murder, rape, and more; even against children — all across Africa and beyond.
When the Obama administration and NATO, acting under the purported “authority” of a United Nations resolution, backed al-Qaeda-linked jihadist rebels and helped overthrow the regime of Moammar Gadhafi, a former U.S. terror-war ally, Libya was supposed to have been “liberated.” Instead, it spiraled into deeper and bloodier civil war, and has now essentially become a terror state — with groups ranging from the Islamic State (ISIS) to al-Qaeda openly roaming the capital and operating training centers across large swaths of the nation under their control. Libya today, following what analysts and even former U.S. generals described as Obama “switching sides” in the terror war, also features multiple self-styled “governments” battling each other for control over the ruins and traumatized survivors. Amid the chaos, it has become open season on Christians and journalists, too.
As South Africa descends into what its radical rulers refer to as the “Second Phase” of their communist revolution, warnings about an approaching genocide and full-blown communist tyranny are growing progressively louder. In a statement released last week, the organization Genocide Watch again sounded the alarm surrounding the ongoing, regime-linked preparations to exterminate minority Afrikaner farmers. South Africa’s credit rating, meanwhile, was downgraded again last month to barely above “junk” status. Parliament recently descended into a brawl after a politician called the president a "criminal and a thief." As the warning signs become increasingly obvious, however, the establishment media around the world continues to look the other way.
Two UN agencies have denied that their tetanus vaccination program in Kenya is being used to sterilize women without their consent, as two Catholic organizations have alleged.
Less than a year after the United Nations unveiled a sweeping population-control plot aimed at reducing the number of people in Kenya, a supposed UN “vaccine program” is under fire by doctors and Catholic bishops for deliberately sterilizing millions of women. The explosive revelations were released after medical researchers and the Catholic Church found a sterilization agent in tetanus inoculations being foisted on Kenyan women by two UN agencies in cooperation with the national government. Incredibly, it is not the first time that international vaccine campaigns by the UN targeting Third World populations have been exposed as covert sterilization and eugenics programs. Some critics have even referred to the latest plot as race-based genocide.
As the Obama administration and the United Nations send military troops and massive amounts of resources in a thus far totally ineffective bid to supposedly combat the deadly Ebola virus, one private company has already “stopped Ebola in its tracks” with exactly zero soldiers, according to National Public Radio. Indeed, using standard medical techniques to control the disease it found through Google searches, Firestone Natural Rubber Company, which operates a giant rubber-tree farm in Ebola-stricken Liberia, has become what the Wall Street Journal described as a “sanctuary of health in a country where cases are doubling every three weeks.”
Without congressional or constitutional authorization, this week Obama announced a plan to send 3,000 U.S. troops to West Africa, supposedly to help African governments deal with the deadly Ebola virus by imposing what amounts to medical martial law. Among other controversial activities, American forces will be working with the Liberian military to quarantine entire villages as police and troops put the entire nation of Sierra Leone on lockdown. Obama is also helping to boost the powers and capabilities of dictator-dominated international organizations under the guise of fighting the disease. Critics, though, are expressing outrage over the machinations even as senior administration officials struggle to explain it all.
The terrorist group Boko Haram has declared the predominantly Christian town of Gwoza in northeastern Nigeria an Islamic “caliphate,” following the slaughter of more than 100 residents there.
