Boko Haram


Boko Haram loosely translated may mean (nobody knows for sure)”Western Education is Sin.” In a 2009 BBC interview, the leader of the group, stated his belief that the fact of a spherical Earth is contrary to Islamic teaching and should be rejected, along with Darwinian evolution and the fact of rain originating from water evaporated by the sun. It should also be noted that while Boko Haram has  recently gotten a lot of press for kidnapping schoolgirls that  in the recent past with little press or world notice they have simply just killed any boys they find at schools.

About safrisri

I was a school teacher until retirement. I have taught at all educational levels from pre-school to college. My college degree is general science which I arrived at after 5 years and 5 different majors. A degree as it turns out, almost as valuable and in demand as one in Neo-Bulgarian Mythology. I have been around education for around 40 years and can remember when teaching was a pleasant, happy and creative job and our schools were the same. Now I'm the guy sitting on the porch with an opinion on everything.
