Real classy! Slitting throats so as not to call attention from the security forces?? Bastards! Boko Haram really must be proud of themselves now?? I guess they really want to make on the radar of US drones and Mr.Obama, the USA will have to show how color blind they are and let the drones do the talking against these evil terrorists!

These "Islamists" must not know that Mohammad would disapprove of their despicable actions.

Serrano@ No one is qualified to words in Mohammad's mouth, unless they are the graduate of an Islamic divinity school.

I'm so sick and tired of people saying that Islam is a peaceful religion. Are all Muslims bad, NO, but the radical Islamists are so way out of control, nowadays the fist thing that comes to your mind when you hear Islam is : radical terrorism and jihad and that's pretty sad, when you have to think like that. These guys call themselves tolerant, but this kind of violence is anything but.

Oh I think in this case most people could take a pretty educated guess that the prophet Mohammad did not advocate random violence and murder against helpless innocents. Islam is a gentle, peaceful religion. It is the twisting of his words by extremists that causes all these problems.

If you feel bad simply by hearing or thinking about it, it is because you've got a problem in your prefrontal cortex: --a portion there in charge of sympathy and empathy causes your body to react that way.

about 2/3 of the koran would disagree with this statement

The title is misleading. These were not "extremist" these were the moderates of Islam. To no behave violently is would be a radical norm under Islam, it's prophet was a brutal warlord, not some guy that went town to town preaching like say Jesus or Buddha.

You really don't know much about Mohammed do you? He wouldn't approve of these actions against other muslims, but against non-muslims is a completely different story. Of all the 3 major religious founders, he was the only one that advocated violence against others.

Sympathy and empathy, depending on situations, are human bondages. There are ways to eliminate them by acting on prefrontal cortex. If you leave your newborn baby in a nursery for en extended period of time and if it has been ill treated by some impatient nurses all that time, he (mostly he) probably would grow up to be a tough, ruthless guy. Violent media work the same way to young kids. The prefrontal cortex, foreseeing a dire need of self defense for survival in the kids life, simply switches off the wiring to the sympathy and empathy regions and disable them.
