Jesse Jackson Backs Amnesty For Boko-Haram by Maxymilliano(m): 6:33pm On May 19, 2013
Renowned American Rights Activist, Rev. Jesse Jackson has thrown his weight behind the Federal Government decision to offer amnesty to Boko Haram sect.

He described the move as a deliberate step to end insecurity in the country.

According to him, the amnesty offer must be open and honored, and implemented to include economic restitution and inclusion of destroyed Christian and Muslim structures in affected Northern parts of the country.

Rev. Jesse Jackson, in an interview in Yenagoa said the amnesty being offered by the President Goodluck Jonathan administration must be made to work and the conditions fully honoured.

“The amnesty must involve the economic restitution, the jobs and the training. On the other hand, within the United States, when there was civil unrest, there was a kind of state of emergency. But I hope the country will soon get back away from the battle field and get to the negotiation table.
In the end, it will be the bargaining table. It is not the battle field that wins victory. You can not battle forever.”

“You can bargain and resolve the conflict in the North. That why I believe so much in non-violence. Non-violence does not mean fear but courage, thinking and it means the ability to figure it out and fight it out.

“You must have the ability to resolve conflict and not fight aggressively. It must not resolve into killing and being killed. You see, the United States was blessed five years ago when Barrack Obama became the President. Because America overcame, for the first time, a kind of ethnic tribalism.

We choose a candidate whose values and vision transcended racial hidden agenda.

“We live our faith under the law. We need to have a strong bite of laws that will protect us against the violation of our democratic rights. And I can say to you that most of the struggle in the Niger Delta and the ones between Christian and Muslims in the North should be solved with fairer distribution of available resources.

“The amnesty being proposed in Nigeria is hoped to have included the rebuilding of mosques and churches destroyed by insurgents. It is a sign of goodwill that will promote coexistence. We must choose to coexist because we have learn to stay apart and the insurgency have given us a harder lesson to live better and together.

“I just wanted to live the matter to be deliberated as an internal matter by Nigerians. Nigerians have many religions like the Christians, Muslims, the Buddhists and others. This is what make Nigeria rich.

They are multi-religious and multi-cultural.

It is also made up of many states and many resources. That is what makes the nation great and I hope everyone will appreciate the status of the country. And should, in our angry moments be part of the big family. I have seen some cases in America with such huge tensions as being witnessed by Nigeria. Some parts of America threatened to break away but Lincoln did not allow it.”

“He resisted succession. Just like the Biafrans some years ago. That was a resistance to succession. In 1960 during the Kennedy election, he had 110,000 votes less than his opponent, but there was tension, no threat of succession because they chooses the country more than their ambition.

“In 2000, Al Gore had more votes that Bush and after the count Bush won. Gore considered national interest above personal interest. Some of us makes the nation a greater sacrifice. Some make sacrifice with pains and emotions. The politicians spin Nigeria should make a greater sacrifice.”

Jesse jackson does not understand the idiosyncrasies of NIgeria, so he's speaking ignorantly. Has anyone told him that bokoharam is a terrorist group with no identifiable grouse whatsoever? if they deserve amnesty then every Nigerian deserves amnesty because i don't see how their problems are unique to the problem of every other Nigeria. he should stick to discussing tea party issues and leave Nigeria out of his ignorant sermons.

Just like the Jerry curl Rev Sharpton, Rev. Jackson is fast becoming a nuisance to the African American community.
They are being cajoled on every comedy skit for their undue defence and support on anything black. Good or bad.

Farakan still have some strong logic to back up some of his claims sometimes.

They're both opportunists and they have been pimping black people since the civil rights movement ended. grin

However, he did raise a few points. But I just don't rate the man.

Perhaps, this is where I need to apply "listen to the message and not the messenger." wink

Not true sir. America always negotiates with terrorists when there is an intersection of interests - the Taliban (in Afghanistan) can be considered one of several notable examples.

Jesse Jackson needs to stfu! and go back home and try to fix the disfunctional black Ghettos and hoods in America. If he's such a good problem solver, he should start from his black communities in America or fix his son (Jesse Jackson Jr.) going to Prison in August for fraud in Illinois. I guess he's looking for money again like he did when Abacha and IBB were in Govt. OLE!

Al Sharpton is a nuisance to the African American community? Tell that to the families of Abadou Diallo and so many others who have been gunned down by the police.If it weren't for Al Sharpton the very media you believe in would have made so many believe tbey were gang members...criminals. Continue tuning in to your subtly racists programmes and before long you will be trying to join the Ku Klux Klan.
