A Reminder Of What Sort of People We Are Fighting

Although many progressives barely seem to be aware of it.  From July 6, 2013 Associated Press:

POTISKUM, Nigeria (AP) -- Islamic militants attacked a boarding school before dawn Saturday, dousing a dormitory in fuel and lighting it ablaze as students slept, survivors said. At least 30 people were killed in the deadliest attack yet on schools in Nigeria's embattled northeast.

Authorities blamed the violence on Boko Haram, a radical group whose name means "Western education is sacrilege." The militants have been behind a series of recent attacks on schools in the region, including one in which gunmen opened fire on children taking exams in a classroom.
Western education is a sacrilege?  Compared to burning to death a bunch of kids?
