Nigeria: less talk, more death from "books, him bad"

Boko Haram will not dialogue(surprise) with the government so it is jihad as usual.  Expect more murders of those "not Muslim enough" and attacks against the institutions of law enforcement and government as well as against those things seen as haram: beer halls, pool halls, innocents gathering in the shade for a game of chance and others deemed infidels.

The Horn of Africa is falling, the rise of Islam and sharia is occurring before our eyes.

Nigerian Islamists reject talks with government: spokesman
MAIDUGURI, Nigeria — A purported spokesman for a Nigerian Islamist sect blamed for scores of attacks, including last month's bombing of UN headquarters, has rejected a proposal to negotiate with the government.
A spokesman for Boko Haram told journalists in a conference call late Tuesday in the northeastern city of Maiduguri, where the sect has carried out most of its attacks, that the group would push ahead with its violent campaign.
"We are not going to enter into any dialogue with the government as the Galtimari committee has recommended," Abul Qaqa said, referring to a panel appointed by President Goodluck Jonathan that this week urged negotiations.
"We do not recognise the Galtimari committee and, as far as we are concerned, its recommendations are of no effect."
He added: "We still maintain our cause of ensuring strict implementation of Islamic law in Nigeria and waging war against infidels."
A man identifying himself by the same name has claimed to speak on behalf of the sect on several occasions, but Boko Haram is believed to have a number of factions and several others have said they are spokesmen as well.
Some two months ago, Jonathan set up a seven-person fact-finding committee headed by ex-diplomat Usman Galtimari to seek ways to end violence in the country's northeast.
It handed in its final report this week that urged the government to negotiate with the extremists provided they renounce violence and surrender their arms.
While most of its attacks have been in the northeast, Boko Haram also claimed responsibility for the UN bombing on August 26 in the capital Abuja that killed at least 23 people.
