Israeli forces on the ground in Nigeria

Israeli forces are reportedly on the ground in Nigeria helping to find 276 Christian girls who have been kidnapped and are being forcibly converted to Islam and sold into slavery by the terrorist group Boko Haram.
On Monday, international media was abuzz after the publication of a video showing many of the captive girls dressed in Muslim garb (pictured) and reciting passages from the Koran. In the video, Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau says the girls will be held and continued to be forcibly converted to Islam until jailed members of his group are freed by the Nigerian government.
The government of Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan rejected the demand, and turned to the international community for assistance. Israel was quick to answer the call.
Members of a Nigerian delegation currently in Israel told Channel 2 News that their government had accepted the offer of Israeli aid, and confirmed that Israeli counter-terrorism experts were already en route to the West African nation.
An Israeli military official who just returned from Nigeria told popular Internet news site Buzzfeed that “in the wake of this crisis, Israel increased its assistance and we have been providing support in any manner possible. We have been involved on this from the beginning.”
It was reported that at present, Israeli forces are helping to gather intelligence and guide Nigerian forces on how to best tackle the Boko Haram threat. Some Israeli radio commentators also suggested that Israeli special forces could be taking part in reconnaissance and combat operations.
Meanwhile, Barack and Michelle Obama have described the kidnappings as awful, and have described themselves as outraged and heartbroken. Maybe it's time for America to get a real President?

Remember back in the day, when it was a given that the U.S. President, Secy of State (present and past), Attorney General, etc. would send the U.S. military to be *against* terrorist structures, who had attacked us. And on the side of those mistreated by terrorist thugs, gangbangers, etc.? Well, Coulter's critics are having a cow over how "mean" she is (not how mean these Democrats, who stirred this witches' brew of terrorists in a horror show)... But, this time, she has it exactly right.

May G-d bless Israel! Israel is always there when there is a crisis,and will assist nations far away. There is no other country as caring...one tiny Israel!

It must be because of Israel's "apartheid" ways. LOL
