Good Morning, Little Schoolgirl

Early this morning a suicide bomber killed upwards of fifty people and wounded dozens more at a school in northeastern Nigeria. The bomb was in a backpack carried by a mujahid who had disguised himself as a student and entered the school assembly. No one has yet claimed responsibility for the attack, but Boko Haram is the obvious suspect. The jihad group is active in that part of Nigeria, and its name means “Infidel education is forbidden”.

If this technique — using fake schoolboys to blow up school gatherings — were to move beyond Nigeria, especially if it were to spread to the West, how would it affect standard educational procedures? Would schools and auditoriums become like airports? Would children have to take off their shoes and be x-rayed before they entered every event?

47 People Killed in Bombing Outside Nigerian School; Boko Haram Suspected

Kano, Nigeria (CNN) — At least 47 people were killed and 79 were wounded Monday by a suicide bombing outside a school in northern Nigeria, police said.

The attacker was disguised as a student when he set off the explosion in a government boarding school in the town of Potiskum, police spokesman Emmanuel Ojukwu said.

“We suspect Boko Haram is behind the attack,” Ojukwu said.

The explosion took place at 7:50 a.m. local time outside the principal’s office, where students had gathered for a daily speech.

“We were waiting for our teachers to come and address us at the assembly ground when we heard a huge explosion,” student Adamu Ibrahim said.

It was not immediately clear how many of the casualties were students.

Although no one‎ has claimed responsibility for the attack, Boko Haram is the prime suspect.

The radical Islamic militant group has carried out deadly attacks on schools teaching Western curriculum.

  1. Shut it down. Shut down the avenues of murder and mayhem the prince of darkness uses to in-satanize mortal humans, to insane-itize them. Take a torch to them, these avenues, beginning with the current instantiation of satan’s army: Islam. Nothing short of scorched earth will drive them back to their caves.
    I am beyond sick and tired of hearing of this latest iteration of Satan’s eruption among his followers, inflicting mass terror, murder, and dismemberment of God’s creation.
    I am beyond sick and tired of hearing of it.
    May God be merciful to us and bring to Satan’s own army the bone-crushing agonies it seeks to inflict on God’s creation.

  2. I heard that ISIS forbids learning anything in school besides Islam, then I read that the leader may be hurt and under a doctor’s care. Of course the doctor learned his trade by reading the Koran. What a bunch of hypocrites. Hate modernity, but love the weapons and the medical care of the modern age. Not to mention the ability to provide food. If Muslims want to prove themselves to Allah, let them pray that food fall from the heavens. As well as water.
    There won’t be world peace until Islam is gone gone gone.

  3. Krugman would call for more members of Boko Haram to be imported into the West in order to slowly “subvert” them into becoming good secular multiculturalists.
