Nigerian Christians Ambushed, One Killed

This WILL NOT make any of the major news wires. Can't imagine why.....

From www.townhall.com

Christian family ambushed in Nigeria


Davou Bulle, his wife, and their 10 children each climbed into the van, exhausted from another full day of work on their family’s farm. He started to pull away but was soon jarred to attention by the sound of gunshots hitting the tires. They were being ambushed because of his faith!
The Muslim attackers soon aimed their weapons at the driver, in hopes to first kill the Christian “infidel” then kill his entire family. In an attempt to protect his father, son Gyan lunged at the bullets to shield him, but the bullets found their way to their intended target, killing Davou. Gyan trying to help his father took 14 bullets during the ambush. Davou’s wife Mary was hit in the eye during the attack.
Mary was taken into surgery immediately. She lost one of her eyes as a result of the attack. Son Gyan was also operated on, removing all 14 bullets from his body. Miraculously he survived! Davou left behind a wife and 10 children.
More than 10,000 Christians have been killed since 1999 in Nigeria and nearly 1,000 homes and churches have been burned down by Muslim radicals-all because of their faith in Jesus Christ. VOM has opened up a center in Jos, Nigeria for the purpose of helping Christian widows who have lost their husbands at the hands of Muslim fanatics. This center will help these widows develop a trade in sewing or computers so they can support themselves and their children who were left behind.

    "This WILL NOT make any of the major news wires. Can't imagine why....."

    Perhaps because the US CIA statistics regarding Nigeria: CIA - The World Factbook - Nigeria, says that 310,000 people died in 2003 alone due to HIV/AIDS.

    So, I guess 10,000 people in 6 years (or about 1667 people per year) dying of their faith is lesser of a worry.

    That is to say, its 185 times more likely that you'll die of AIDS in Nigeria, than you will of being a Christian.

    It occurred to me that that post came across as slightly hostile when that wasn't really the intention.

    All I really mean is that your story, and the fact that 310,000 people will die of AIDS should BOTH make the news.

    Sadly as it is, neither of them will, you are right. However, if one WERE to make the news, I would have to suspect it would be more on the lines of how many people have died from AIDS rather than how many have died from being slain as Christians.

    Why not talk about both? Is not AIDS a scourge that hits regardless of faith or personal God?

    Ahh yes, indeed my point. I certainly think the media should address both, but as it is, we can be sure neither will come up in the news is all I was saying.

    Certainly both are horrible statistics, my only comment was suggesting that if they are not even going to publish newspaper articles regarding such death tolls as 310,000, it seems highly unlikely they will publish death tolls of 10,000 accrued over a 6 year time period.
