Editorial: Children Forced To Carry Bombs

By Alistair Reign on July 26, 2015

I planned on posting an article on the bombing that went off in a crowded market in the city of Damaturu, Nigeria this morning; 17 people killed, and 50 people injured, and then I read the first two sentences of the following BBC News article, and now, at this moment I fear the power of media more that the extremist’s violence.

This Quote is from BBC News website, “A girl aged about 10 has carried out a suicide bombing in north-eastern Nigeria, killing at least 16 people, police say. The attack took place near a crowded market in the city of Damaturu  in Yobe state. About 50 people were wounded.

These two sentences sent a chill through my bones, A child at the age of ten years old cannot be called a suicide bomber. That child was not a killer, that child was killed in the blast. The news articles I have been reading have not even include the 10 year old’s death in the count of 16 people killed.

I will not link my readers to any of the news articles at this time, until I find an article that recognizes this horrible tragedy was done at the hands of violent men, and those men killed that child.

Shame on the media outlets for creating more fear, and hatred towards people who follow the Muslim faith; now media wants us to fear the children as well, by basically calling a 10 year-old child a terrorist. I have raised three children, and I know 10 year old’s are not capable of understanding the consequences, or making a decision to kill themselves along with dozens of people.

How far will the media spin the death of that 10 year-old child to justify the hatred, that is now encompassing the innocent; and the women and children being raped and slaughtered have no safe place to run and hide? What I will do, is gather more information on the Boko Haram Extremists, and report on the activities of the men who are responsible for the death of 17 innocent people this morning.

It was commissioned by pro-EU campaign group "We are Europe" as what they call a warning of things to come if Britons vote to leave the 28-member bloc on June 23, as advocated by both Johnson and Trump, the presumptive Republican candidate in November's U.S. presidential election. Johnson is the "Out" campaign's best-known leader and Trump has said Britain would be "better off without" the EU, which he has blamed for Europe's migration crisis.
