11/17/2020 Nigeria (International Christian Concern) – A recent book released by Rabbi Abraham Cooper, director of the global social action agenda of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, and Rev. Johnnie Moore, a commissioner on the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom and president of the Congress of Christian Leaders, describes the rise of violent extremist groups throughout Africa. These two men believe that with these rise of the groups, Africa could be the next place that holds full on Jihad.

The book, “The Next Jihad: Stop the Christian Genocide in Africa”, was written after the two traveled to Nigeria. They had met with dozens of Christian victims of violence and Islamic Extremism. Thousands of Christians throughout the Middlebelt and the Northeast of Nigeria have been killed at the hands of those who hate them. Nigeria is not the only country suffering from Islamic Extremism either. Mali, Somalia, DRC, Mozambique, Niger, and Burkina Faso all suffer from growing extremism as well.
