Muslim Persecution in Nigeria
When we think of Muslim persecution of Christians in Northern Nigeria, we generally think of Boko Haram. But it is far broader than that. The Fulani tribe extends across Northern Nigeria and into other countries.
When 500 jihadis from the Fulani tribe attacked the areas of Barkin Ladi and Jos South(Nigeria) on June 23–24, 2018, Christians in the area could only pray and flee. By the time the attacks had ended, hundreds lay dead and more than 10,000 — primarily Christians — had been displaced from their homes and villages.

The Fulani Nationality Movement took credit for these violent attacks and warned of even more attacks. “Our men are waiting,” the group threatened. “We are eager to fight.” The group has promised to fight against all those “raising their voices against us and against Allah.”

Here is a Sept. 3rd news release from one source.
Genocide: Islamists slaughter Christians as the media ignores to protect Islam’s image Facebook Church leaders in Nigeria have said that Christians are experiencing “pure genocide” as 6,000 people, mostly women and children, have been murdered by Fulani radicals since January. What’s happening to Christians in Nigeria is one of the most appalling human rights abuses happening in the world right now but the Media ignores to avoid damaging Islam’s image. The Fulani herdsmen, who are mostly Muslims, are committing genocide against Christians and non-Muslims in Nigeria. The Islamic persecution of Christians throughout the Middle East, Asia and Africa has become genocide. Why doesn’t the world seem to care when Christians die? Why is it that When Christians are murdered and persecuted en masse, no one seems to care — not even other Christians? Where are all the human rights organizations of the UN? Where are all human rights organizations in the West? Please pray for the Christian minorities in the Muslim world.

Principle of Abrogation
Sometimes Muslims and others will speak of Islam as a religion of peace, which is very far from the truth. Passages from the Koran on ‘peace’ will be quoted from the time Mohammed was in Mecca, but this changed and passages like these were ‘abrogated’ or replaced with others of a hateful nature.
We believe in prophecy and fulfillment in the Scriptures. Think of Is. 7:14 and many more. There is no contradiction and one does not replace the other.
We also believe that Israel was under the Law of Moses until Christ came and fulfilled all law. Rom. 10:4 Christ is the end of the law…The Law was our custodian until Christ came. Gal. 3:23-24 This is in no way invalidating passages with others or replacing them as in Islam.

In Islam one passage of the Koran can replace another. Some claim Islam as a religion of peace using passages like 109:6…you have yours, I have mine. This was when Mohammed was at Mecca. When he moved to Medina we have: 9:5 kill…unless repent, 8:12 strike off the heads…
This we see also in what the Koran says about Jesus with one passage replacing another abrogating…
Farooq Ibrahim gives the examples below.

The concept of “abrogation” in the Quran is that Allah chose to reveal ayat (singular ayah – means a sign or miracle, commonly a verse in the Quran) that supercede earlier ayat in the same Quran. The central ayah that deals with abrogation is Surah 2:106:
None of Our revelations do We abrogate or cause to be forgotten, but We substitute something better or similar: Knowest thou not that Allah Hath power over all things?
Surah 16:101
When We substitute one revelation for another,- and Allah knows best what He reveals (in stages),- they say, “Thou art but a forger”: but most of them understand not.
It is Allah’s pleasure to change or confirm whatever he chooses as stated in Surah 13:39:
Allah doth blot out or confirm what He pleaseth: with Him is the Mother of the Book.
And so the final on Jesus is that he did not die, abrogating earlier passages that seem to indicate this.
