Goodluck Jonathan, the former president of Nigeria who is a Christian, has charged former President Barack Obama with facilitating the persecution of Christians by intervening in the nation’s politics so that he was replaced by the African nation’s current president, Muhammadu Buhari – a Muslim under whom mass carnage has been waged against believers.
Jonathan – who served as Nigeria’s president from 2010 to 2015 – alleges in his new book, My Transition Hours, that Obama went out of his way to meddle in Nigerian politics so that he was deposed and succeeded by his Muslim rival, who has gone after Christians with a vengeance.
“On March 23, 2015, President Obama himself took the unusual step of releasing a video message directly to Nigerians all but telling them how to vote,” Jonathan wrote in his book, as quoted in AllAfrica.com. “In that video, Obama urged Nigerians to open the ‘next chapter’ by their votes. Those who understood subliminal language deciphered that he was prodding the electorate to vote for the [Muslim-led] opposition to form a new government.”
Out with Christianity, in with Islam
A news report published four years earlier in 2011 indicated that Obama was well-aware of the Islamic violence that would be ushered in if the Christian president left office.
“The current wave of [Muslim] riots was triggered by the Independent National Election Commission’s (INEC) announcement on Monday [April 18, 2011] that the incumbent President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, won in the initial round of ballot counts,” an April 2011 ABC News report announced. “That there were riots in the largely Muslim inhabited northern states where the defeat of the Muslim candidate Muhammadu Buhari was intolerable, was unsurprising.”
Nigeria, which is dominated by Muslims in the northern half of the nation and by Christians in the southern half – had more promising and peaceful years ahead with the Christian president taking power, but militant Nigerian Muslims did all they could to threaten his leadership and make his presidency as rocky and unstable as possible.
“Northerners [Muslims] felt they were entitled to the presidency for the declared winner, President Jonathan, [who] assumed leadership after the Muslim president, Umaru Yar’Adua, died in office last year and radical groups in the north [Boko Haram] had seen his [Jonathan’s] ascent as a temporary matter to be corrected at this year’s election,” the ABC News report added. “Now they are angry – despite experts and observers concurring that this is the fairest and most independent election in recent Nigerian history.”
Obama’s trend of putting militant Muslims in power
Removing America’s allied powers abroad and working toward replacing them with Islamic terrorist-supporting regimes was nothing new under Obama, as one must only look back at the so-called “Arab Spring.”
“That the Obama administration may have imposed its will on a foreign country’s politics and elections is hardly unprecedented,” Breaking Israel News reported (BIN). “Recall the administration’s partiality for the Muslim Brotherhood during and after 2012 presidential elections in Egypt; or its unsuccessful efforts to oust Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu with U.S. taxpayers’ money; or its efforts – with an admittedly unverified ‘dossier’ – to prevent then-presidential candidate Donald J. Trump from being elected, or by discussing an ‘insurance policy’ in the event that Trump won. Moreover, texts by Peter Strzok revealed that Obama ‘wants to know everything we’re doing.’”
After having his way in the Middle East and essentially handing the region over to Islamic terrorist supporting and harboring leaders, Obama took his pro-Muslim crusade further south to the middle of the Supercontinent of Africa.
“So, in Nigeria, the Obama administration, it seems, sought to right the apparently intolerable wrong of having a duly elected Christian president in a more than 50 percent Christian nation,” BIN’s Raymond Ibrahim asserted. “Two questions arise: 1) Is there any outside evidence to corroborate Jonathan’s allegations against the Obama administration? 2) Is Buhari truly facilitating the jihad on his Christian countrymen?”
He went on to present evidence of the pro-Islamic/anti-Christian foreign policy touted and administered by the Obama administration.
“Former Nigerian President Jonathan’s newly published accusations appear to correspond with the former U.S. administration’s policy concerning Muslims and Christians in Nigeria,” Ibrahim noted. “To begin with, the Obama administration insisted that violence and bloodshed in Nigeria – almost all of which was committed by Muslims against Christians – had nothing to do with religion. This despite the fact that Boko Haram – which was engaging in ISIS-type atrocities: slaughter, kidnap, rape, plunder, slavery, torture, before ISIS was even born – presented its terrorism as a jihad.”
