Jihad Watch : These incidents are really happening, and they’re happening more and
more frequently. In the West, meanwhile, those who speak about them are
vilified as “Islamophobes” and steadily defamed, deplatformed, and
silenced. Silencing news of such incidents, however, will not prevent
them from happening, even, eventually, in the U.S. “Muslim Fulani Herdsmen Massacre Christians after Baby Dedication in Nigeria,” Morning Star News, April 18, 2019:
