Good to know. I doubt, though, that it'll offer much consolation to family members of those killed today.“Boko Haram is un-Islamic. Islam is about moderation and not extremism. Jihad is about how to make peace and life better, not how to kill people.’’
Update: Boko Haram's Wiki entry makes it sound as though the jihad outfit is at least 99 44/100th% pure Islam.
The Congregation of the People of Tradition for Proselytism and Jihad (Jama'atu Ahlis Sunna Lidda'awati Wal-Jihad), known by its Hausa name Boko Harām (pronounced [bōːkòː hàrâm]; figuratively meaning "Western education is sin"), is a terrorist organization based in northeastern Nigeria, north Cameroon and Niger. Founded by Mohammed Yusuf in 2002, the organization seeks to establish a "pure" Islamic state ruled by sharia, putting an end to what it deems Westernization.
