The Kidnapped Girls in Nigeria. The Modern Sabine Women?

Boko Haram is a militant Islamic group in Northern Nigeria.  The news has reported about the girls kidnapped by them.  Today, the news made it seem as though the women were kidnapped so these fighters could have wives.

If you know your Classical Roman history, you know of the Rape of the Sabine women.  The more things change…

Boko Haram ne m Islamic kungiyar a Arewacin Nijeriya. The labari ya ruwaito game da girls sace da su. A yau, labari sanya shi ze kamar dai matan da aka sace haka wadannan mayaka iya samun mata.

In ka san ka Classical Roman tarihi, ka san na Rape na Sabine mata. Bisa ga yawan abubuwa canja


بوكو حرام هي جماعة اسلامية متشددة في شمال نيجيريا. وأفادت الأنباء عن اختطاف الفتيات من قبلهم. اليوم، أدلى صحفي يبدو كما لو تم اختطاف النساء حتى هؤلاء المقاتلين يمكن أن يكون الزوجات.

إذا كنت تعرف تاريخك الروماني الكلاسيكي، وانت تعرف من اغتصاب النساء سابين. وبقدر ما تتغير الأشياء

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and now live in Tucson, Arizona. I have discovered a passion for writing. I have five books out now, with a sixth on the way. Take a look @ my book list: The Search for Livingstone An Affair of the Heart The Search for Otzi Griffith Justice in Space. Moriarty The Life and Times of a Criminal Genius Available now on Smashwords - Amazon and Barnes and Noble As to not bore my public with just "Buy my book," I am also interested in baseball, the outdoors, art, architecture, technology, the human mind and DNA. I learned Ashkenazi Jews, of which I am one, have to lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world. Therefore, I treat my brain as a muscle needing a workout. I enjoy good food, flirtation, beautiful women (I am happily married for thirty years), so just flirting ;) I was considered autistic when I was young, trying to figure out if I have a mild form of Aspergers and learning from that. That is for future posts. You can also see I love history. Enjoy my sarcastic silly look at the world, and making History more interesting than a textbook.
