Another Ignored Genocide of Christians Plagues Burkina Faso


Attacks in Burkina Faso have become so flagrantly based on religion that even the Washington Post published a report on August 21 titled, "Islamist militants are targeting Christians in Burkina Faso": "A spreading Islamist insurgency has transformed Burkina Faso from a peaceful country known for farming, a celebrated film festival and religious tolerance into a hotbed of extremism." The report notes that the jihadis have been checking people's necks for Christian symbols, killing anyone wearing a crucifix or carrying any other Christian image. On other occasions, "the armed terrorists challenged Christians to convert or die."
