      Don’t be silly Nnenne…people are not the religion or faith. This is what causes confusion and conflict all the time. Why focus on the negative anyway?

      Israel is the biggest arms dealer in the world. So should people that die from war, terror or even police shootings boycott their pilgrimage to Jerusalem?
      All these pastors that you see fleecing struggling people of money and even some that you hear sexually molesting people…or even the scandals of catholic priests and little boys…will you now quit church? Or not go to the basilica in Rome?

      People are NOT religion or faith. The may help propagate it and many times CORRUPT it but those are the ways the devil uses to block and disillusion us from worshipping God….better face your front and focus and stop lumping unrelated issues together.

      People can go wherever they want: Mecca, Jerusalem, Rome. Faith is personal.
      Everyone will stand alone and account for themselves ONLY on judgement day.

    Nigerian girls are part of this trade now. Sadly these ladies have valued language skills in these parts – English yet are the least valued

    It’s the fault of the African governments. There is an embassy and an ambassador that should be addressing these issues and making sure perpetrators are duly punished. So sad.

    I am usually loathe to paint people with overbroad strokes, but I have had been to those Gulf States often enough to reach the conclusion that the vast majority of the natives are absolutely horrid to all but Westerners.
