  • WORLD, AND WE MET WITHVICTIMS, AND WE MET WITH
  • 00:15:41.413 --> 00:15:43.581
  • DOZENS AND DOZENS OFVICTIMS, AND WE HEARD
  • 00:15:43.682 --> 00:15:46.952
  • STORY AFTER STORY AFTERSTORY, AND I CAN TELL YOU

  • ERICK, THE MOST HORRIFICSTORIES I'VE EVER HEARD.
  • 00:15:50.088 --> 00:15:53.758
  • AND I TRAVELED ALL AROUNDTHE WORLD, WHOLE VILLAGES
  • 00:15:53.858 --> 00:15:56.861
  • THAT HAD BEEN BURNED TOTHE GROUND, CHILDREN THAT
  • 00:15:56.962 --> 00:16:00.098
  • HAD BEEN KILLED INGROTESQUE WAYS.
  • 00:16:00.198 --> 00:16:02.767
  • THERE WAS ONE FAMILY THATI CAN'T GET OUT OF MY HEAD.
  • 00:16:02.867 --> 00:16:06.438
  • THEIR THREE KIDS, THEIRNAMES ARE PATIENCE,
  • 00:16:06.538 --> 00:16:09.474
  • REJOICE AND REVELATION.
  • 00:16:09.574 --> 00:16:13.411
  • AND THE TERRORISTS CAME ININ THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT,
  • 00:16:13.511 --> 00:16:16.081
  • KILLED THEIR PARENTS,
  • 00:16:16.181 --> 00:16:17.515
  • THEY BURNED DOWN THEVILLAGE, THEY DESTROYED
  • 00:16:17.615 --> 00:16:19.250
  • ALL THE CROPS, AND THEYDIDN'T RESERVE THEIR FURY FOR
  • 00:16:19.351 --> 00:16:22.587
  • THE CHILDREN. THEY MASSACREDTHE KIDS AS WELL.
  • 00:16:22.687 --> 00:16:26.558
  • AND REMARKABLY IN THATVILLAGE, A THREE MONTH
  • 00:16:26.658 --> 00:16:29.160
  • OLD LITTLE CHILD SURVIVEDA POINT BLANK GUNSHOT.
  • 00:16:29.260 --> 00:16:34.332
  • I MEAN, IT IS HORRIFICWHAT HAS HAPPENED.
  • 00:16:34.432 --> 00:16:36.901
  • THE VICTIMS ARE IN THETENS OF THOUSANDS.
  • 00:16:37.002 --> 00:16:38.570
  • IT'S GETTING WORSE. ITISN'T GETTING BETTER.
  • 00:16:38.670 --> 00:16:40.905
  • AND WE'VE DECIDED THAT WEHAVE TO BE A VOICE FOR
  • 00:16:41.006 --> 00:16:44.209
  • THESE PEOPLE BECAUSETHEY'RE SUFFERING IN THE
  • 00:16:44.309 --> 00:16:45.844
  • SHADOWS. AND SO OUR PRIMARYGOAL IN WRITING THE
  • 00:16:45.944 --> 00:16:48.546
  • NEXT JIHAD, ASIDE FROMDESCRIBING THE SITUATION
  • 00:16:48.646 --> 00:16:52.283
  • FOR PEOPLE TO BETTERUNDERSTAND IT, BUT OUR
  • 00:16:52.384 --> 00:16:54.085
  • PRIMARY GOAL WAS TO TELLTHE STORIES AND BE A
  • 00:16:54.185 --> 00:16:56.921
  • VOICE FOR THE VOICELESS,TO HELP THE VICTIMS HAVE
  • 00:16:57.022 --> 00:17:00.625
  • THEIR DAY AS OPPOSED TOBEING LOST IN HISTORY.
  • 00:17:00.725 --> 00:17:03.995
  • - SO WHY AREN'T WE GETTINGMORE COVERAGE OF THIS ISSUE.
  • 00:17:04.095 --> 00:17:06.931
  • WHAT YOU LAY OUT IN THEBOOK "THE NEXT JIHAD" IS A
  • 00:17:07.032 --> 00:17:09.267
  • HORRIFIC DETAIL OF, ASYOU SAID, CHILDREN BEING
  • 00:17:09.367 --> 00:17:12.637
  • SLAUGHTERED BYISLAMIC JIHADISTS.
  • 00:17:12.737 --> 00:17:15.440
  • IT'S REMINISCENT OF WHATISIS DID IN SYRIA AND IRAQ.
  • 00:17:15.540 --> 00:17:18.843
  • WHY DO YOU THINK THEREHASN'T BEEN MORE COVERAGE
  • 00:17:18.943 --> 00:17:21.346
  • OF THIS ISSUE IN NIGERIAAND REALLY ACROSS AFRICA?
  • 00:17:21.446 --> 00:17:24.916
  • - YOU KNOW, I WISH IHAD AN ANSWER TO THAT
  • 00:17:25.016 --> 00:17:27.952
  • QUESTION, ERICK. IDON'T HAVE AN ANSWER.
  • 00:17:28.053 --> 00:17:29.821
  • IT TOTALLY BEFUDDLES ME.
  • 00:17:29.921 --> 00:17:32.357
  • I DON'T UNDERSTAND HOWSUCH A GRAVE SITUATION
  • 00:17:32.457 --> 00:17:35.894
  • RECEIVES SO LITTLEATTENTION FROM THE WORLD.
  • 00:17:35.994 --> 00:17:38.063
  • BUT THAT IS A FACT.
  • 00:17:38.163 --> 00:17:39.764
  • I ALSO THINK THESOLUTION IS THE CHURCH.
  • 00:17:39.864 --> 00:17:42.000
  • I MEAN THE FACT IS THATCHRISTIANS ALL AROUND THE
  • 00:17:42.100 --> 00:17:44.602
  • WORLD HAVE BROTHERSAND SISTERS THAT ARE
  • 00:17:44.702 --> 00:17:46.871
  • SUFFERING GRIEVOUS HARMEVERY SINGLE DAY, AND
  • 00:17:46.971 --> 00:17:49.641
  • IT'S TIME FOR US TO TREATTHEM LIKE FAMILY AND
  • 00:17:49.741 --> 00:17:52.243
  • TO RAISE OUR VOICES.
  • 00:17:52.343 --> 00:17:53.611
  • IN THE UNITED STATES,CHRISTIANS ARE INCREDIBLY
  • 00:17:53.711 --> 00:17:56.081
  • POLITICALLY INFLUENTIAL.
  • 00:17:56.181 --> 00:17:57.816
  • IN THE 2020 ELECTIONALONE, 43 MILLION
  • 00:17:57.916 --> 00:18:01.086
  • EVANGELICALS VOTED.
  • 00:18:01.186 --> 00:18:02.854
  • THAT WAS LIKE 27 PERCENTOF ALL THE VOTERS IN THE
  • 00:18:02.954 --> 00:18:06.024
  • UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
  • 00:18:06.124 --> 00:18:07.659
  • EVANGELICALS ARE HUGELYINFLUENTIAL IN MANY OTHER
  • 00:18:07.759 --> 00:18:10.028
  • COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:18:10.128 --> 00:18:11.729
  • AND IT'S NOW TIME FORUS TO RAISE OUR VOICE
  • 00:18:11.830 --> 00:18:13.998
  • ON THIS ISSUE.
  • 00:18:14.099 --> 00:18:15.333
  • I DON'T CARE IN THEUNITED STATES IF YOUR
  • 00:18:15.433 --> 00:18:17.268
  • CONGRESSMAN IS DEMOCRATOR REPUBLICAN, WHATEVER
  • 00:18:17.368 --> 00:18:19.704
  • DISTRICT YOU LIVE IN,THEY NEED TO HEAR FROM YOU.
  • 00:18:19.804 --> 00:18:22.073
  • AND THE EUROPEANS, IT'STIME THEY ACT AS WELL.
  • 00:18:22.173 --> 00:18:25.743
  • I MEAN THE UNITED KINGDOMALONE GIVES A MILLION
  • 00:18:25.844 --> 00:18:28.913
  • POUNDS A DAY TO NIGERIA.
  • 00:18:29.013 --> 00:18:32.517
  • THE UNITED STATESGOVERNMENT GIVES
  • 00:18:32.617 --> 00:18:34.252
  • APPROXIMATELY A BILLIONDOLLARS A YEAR.
  • 00:18:34.352 --> 00:18:37.155
  • NOW, NO ONE IS SAYINGTHAT WE SHOULD STOP
  • 00:18:37.255 --> 00:18:39.124
  • PROVIDING HUMANITARIANASSISTANCE.
  • 00:18:39.224 --> 00:18:41.025
  • IT'S ALSO A VERY POORPART OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:18:41.126 --> 00:18:43.428
  • PEOPLE DON'T NEED TO DIEFROM STARVING TO DEATH
  • 00:18:43.528 --> 00:18:45.830
  • BECAUSE THEY'RE NOT DYINGFROM TERRORISM, BUT IT IS
  • 00:18:45.930 --> 00:18:48.533
  • TIME FOR US TO STEP UP.
  • 00:18:48.633 --> 00:18:50.735
