Report: Armed Women Repel Boko Haram Attack (Luciano Dondero, Italy, 01/21/15 1:30 am)

I don't know if the following story from Countercurrentnews (http://countercurrentnews.com/2014/05/another-boko-haram-attack-repelled-by-armed-women/# ) can be regarded as an instance of "inter-fath dialogue" or "intra-faith dialogue," because I don't know whether these woman who repelled the Islamist terrorists of Boko Haram are themselves Muslims or Christians. But I surely say: "Chapeau!"

Last May there have been reports on local women in the villages of Attagara and Kawuri in Borno State who disarmed nearly a dozen Boko Haram terrorists: "The Attagara and Kawuri villages in Gwoza and Bama Local Government Areas of Borno State resisted the attack using an array of local talismans and, of course, their assault weapons came in handy as well."

This picture is worth ten thousand words.

JE comments: This could pass for an NRA ad, and frankly I'm skeptical about the veracity of the report and photograph.  I've found it republished in a few places on the 'Net, but none of them are "mainstream" media.  Why is that?  And where would these women get so many assault rifles?

In any case, I'm thankful to Luciano Dondero for bringing this to our attention.  Boko Haram has become the scourge of Nigeria, and the plight of the villagers deserves our attention.
