Bob Geldof: Poverty breeds
groups like Boko Haram

Telegraph [UK], by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 5/8/2014 7:42:53 PM

Irish musician and human rights campaigner Bob Geldof has condemned Boko Haram´s kidnapping of more than 200 schoolgirls in Nigeria. Speaking on the sidelines of a London meeting of Africa Progress Panel, a group of 10 private and public sector figures advocating for equitable and sustainable development in Africa, Geldof said as long there is unemployment and poverty, terrorism will persist. "All these things that you see me going on about--famine, lack of health, lack of education, corruption, war, conflict--are all symptoms of one thing: poverty. Because it´s very hard for terrorism groups to get purchase in countries

I´m beginning to get very suspicious about this heavily orchestrated hashtag campaign when nobody said a word about the 50 schoolboys who were massacred by Boko Haram two months ago.

Why aren´t the girls who were kidnapped in a terror group they are poor Africans. Why only some become terrorist when there are billions across the world living on a couple of dollars a day or less. Geldorf and Kerry really are stupid.

Wrong, Mr. Geldof...Islam breeds groups like Boko Haram. There are lots of poor people around the world who do NOT kidnap young girls and sell them into slavery.

Muslims are the same folks who sold the ancesters of American blacks into slavery, but don´t dare say that out loud.

When people think that "they" are the chosen ones and that others are less valuable, all hell breaks loose. Literally.

Every tyranny in history is rooted in the belief that a small group can force others to comply or be exterminated. The methods, the slogans, the excuses change, but the result is always the same.

There was a press conference at the National Press Club where the Muslim clerics called for unity to fight poverty. They are on EWTN News Nightly now - rebroadcasting what was on earlier.

The secular media might have a report on the news conference. I didn´t look.

And anyway, wasn´t Boko Haram a music group in the 1970´s? Whiter Shade Of Pale, Conquistador, et al?
I can see already this is going to be the media´s "fun to say" word, like gravitas, nor´easter, sortie, Blackhawk down, and countless others. They will try to find ways to work it into conversations. Just watch.

The wealthy who weep and wail because poverty is the cause of the world´s problems can definitely help the situation. They are probably the same ones who say they don´t pay enough taxes either. So, just take 10%, 20% or maybe 80% of your wealth and ´give´ it to the needy. There solved all your problems. Of course, if you give it to the village elders (the politicians) the only ones who benefit are the politicians but then again Geldof can feel really good about himself.

Obviously wrong. The evidence is otherwise.

Thousands of years of recorded history from many societies prove otherwise.

Often the worst movements stem from a sense of possessing an absolute superiority. Such as the Superiority of a people or of a Cause.

It is so easy to disprove by pointing out impoverished yet peaceful peoples that the only response you can give to someone who uses that argument is "bless your heart" and smile.

A quick news flash for Bob Geldof: Radical Islam, along with Saudi funded Wahhabi teachings and Al-Qaeda influence breeds groups like Boko Haram!!! Hillary Clinton´s misguided and incompetent foreign policy decisions, including her total and obstinate refusal to list Boko Haram as a terrorist organization certainly added fuel to the fire. In addition, the arms that were recently supplied to Boko Haram became available as a direct result of the fall of Muammar Gaddafi, another incompetent foreign police disaster engineered by her royal thighness!!! Hillary´s hoof prints are all over this mess!!!

Number of Americans calling illegal

The number of Americans who see illegal immigration as the nation´s most pressing problem has spiked from 3 per cent to 17 percent since May, according to a Gallup poll released Wednesday. That percentage now tops government corruption, the U.S. economy, jobs, health care and every other hot-button issue, driven by a flood of tens of thousands of illegal immigrant children pouring across the U.S.-Mexico border. When Gallup announced the results of the same poll in two months age, ´immigration´ and ´illegal aliens´ ranked eleventh out of 47 issues, attracting a deep level of worry from fewer Americans than those

The White House refused to comply today with a subpoena issued by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee demanding that the president´s official political adviser testify before Congress. The president´s Director of the Office of Political Strategy & Outreach, David Simas, was scheduled to appear before the Oversight committee today to state for the record that his work does not violate a federal law that bans most executive branch employees from engaging in political activity.

Julian Assange sex case:

A Swedish court has ruled that an arrest warrant against Wikileaks founder Julian Assange on charges of sexual assault will stay in place. Mr Assange, who denies the allegations, has sought refuge in the Ecuadorean embassy in London for the past two years to avoid extradition. If he is sent to Sweden, he says he fears charges in the US over the leaking of secret government documents. [Snip] "All in all, the district court makes the assessment that the reasons for the arrest warrant offset the infringement and adverse effects the measure entails for Julian Assange," Judge Lena Egelin said.

Dozens of protesters on both sides of the immigration debate showed up in a small town near Tucson on Tuesday after the sheriff said the federal government plans to transport about 40 immigrant children to an academy for troubled youths - but the kids never arrived. The rallies demonstrated the deep divide of the immigration debate. One group waved American flags, held signs that read ´Return to Sender´ and ´Go home non-Yankees´ and said they would block a bus that was supposed to arrive with immigrant children aboard. It turned heated at times, with shouting matches and a group of

The Household Electricity Survey, commissioned by the Department for Energy and Climate Change, said that this discrepancy may be due to the fact that older people, who are most likely to not see climate change as a threat, are generally more frugal with their energy consumption: [Snip] However, even with over-65s removed, there is still only a weak trend suggesting that people who profess to care about the environment actually do more

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

Contrary to what those who defend the right to own high-powered assault rifles believe, not all guns are created equal.

John McCain, an immigration hawk. Who knew? Mr. McCain, the highest-profile Republican of the U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” that came up with amnesty as the solution to the immigration crisis — and it truly is a crisis — is finally taking a hard line against President Obama for his encouraging the tidal wave of illegal aliens swamping the southwestern border. “There has to be a halt to this,” Mr. McCain thundered Sunday on CNN. “That’s what we want, and the best way to do that is for planeloads of these young people to be returning to their country of origin

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks

The headline in the Washington Post on June 4 was clear: Rove-backed American Crossroads won’t get involved in Cochran runoff Said the Post story the day after Tea Party favorite Chris McDaniel had defeated six-term Mississippi GOP Senator Thad Cochran in the first round of the state’s GOP primary: American Crossroads, a GOP establishment organization, has decided to shift its political focus almost entirely to the general election and will not be spending money in the likely runoff election to decide the Mississippi Senate nomination that was virtually deadlocked after Tuesday night.

Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) has warned all of his colleagues in Congress that President Barack Obama’s new immigration strategy—his plans to legalize millions of illegal alien adults through executive power—could destroy America as we know it. “I write to inform you of a development that threatens the foundation of our constitutional Republic,” Sessions, Congress’s top immigration hawk, wrote in a letter that was hand-delivered to all 535 members of Congress on Monday and provided exclusively to Breitbart News. Sessions cites a recent report from the National Journal, in which reporter Major Garrett detailed how, despite the ongoing

Attorney General Eric Holder encouraged Americans not to forget race while working for justice and equality in their country. “As it stands, our society is not yet color blind -- nor should it be -- given the disparities that still afflict and divide us.” Holder explained, “We must be color brave, and we must never forget that all are made better and more prosperous if all are given equal opportunities.” Holder made his remarks during a speech at Howard University on Tuesday for the 50th Anniversary Celebration of the Civil Rights Act. “We must take into account not only the

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book. With Bill on the skids and his wife’s future prospects on the line, it was necessary for the pubic to see the president being punished, said Weekly Standard online editor Daniel Halper in his new book, “Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.” “They understood that
