So it was noted that Islamic terrorists in the past month massacred many in Nigeria, most recently almost 300 Christians slaughtered in Sri Lanka. A new one in Burkina Faso just happened, 5 people in a Protestant Church, including a Pastor and two sons. This needs to be acknowledged and condemned.
At least five people have been shot dead — including a pastor and his sons — in an attack on a church in Africa, according to security sources.
The gunmen struck during Sunday service at a Protestant church in Silgadji, Burkina Faso, close to the border with Mali, according to Agence France-Presse.
They arrived on motorbikes and killed Pastor Pierre Ouedraogo, two of his sons and three other worshippers, the BBC reported.
“Unidentified armed individuals have attacked the Protestant church in Silgadji killing four members of the congregation and the pastor. At least two other people are missing,” a security source told AFP.
The attack comes amid an uptick in alleged jihadist violence in the country.
A Catholic priest was kidnapped a month ago and at least five teachers were shot dead last week in the east of the country, the BBC said.
Also in the US a veteran converted to Islam, a Hispanic American wanted to kill White Nationalists but thwarted by cops.
Mark Steven Domingo, 26, faces one count of providing and attempting to provide material support to terrorists, according to a federal complaint unsealed Monday.
Prosecutors say Domingo made online posts that “expressed support for violent jihad, a desire to seek retribution for attacks against Muslims, and a willingness to become a martyr.” Authorities added that after Domingo considered attacks targeting “Jews, churches and police officers,” he decided to detonate an improvised explosive device at the Long Beach rally, which police said was called off Sunday morning….
The affidavit also alleges that Domingo posted an online video on March 2 professing his belief in Islam. The following day, he posted on an unnamed social media network that “america needs another vegas event … to kick off civil unrest,” a reference to the October 2017 mass shooting at a country music festival on the Las Vegas Strip. Domingo allegedly wrote that such an event would be “about weakening america [and] giving them a taste of the terror they gladly spread all over the world…”
Days later, after a white supremacist killed 50 people in shootings at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, Domingo posted “there must be retribution.” After that, prosecutors say the FBI source began chatting with Domingo about his plans.
Domingo said he had an assault rifle and semi-automatic rifle and discussed possible jihad attacks targeting Jews walking to synagogue, churches, police officers or a military base, according to investigators. He also allegedly discussed bombing the Santa Monica Pier and launching further attacks on the Port of Long Beach or a train if he survived his planned attack in the city’s Bluff Park.
An FBI SWAT team arrested Domingo Friday after he was given the pressure cookers and surveyed the park site. The FBI source had connected him with a ppurported bomb maker who was actually an undercover police officer and the resulting contraption contained only inert materials.
Jihadist wanted to slaughter those in synagogues and churches and wanted to recreate Las Vegas massacre. Sickening home grown terrorist.
