Daesh (ISIS) is one of the biggest topics on mainstream media and presidential debates and even day to day conversing between neighbors, but Daesh isn’t the deadliest terror group in the world. Many americans probably remember Our First Lady Michelle Obama holding a sign reading “#bring back our girls” back in 2014, many probably don’t know about the backstory or even the reasoning behind the picture. Boko Haram is a terrorist insurgency group based in northern african countries. The group, much like Daesh, claims islam and jihadism as its motive. Boko Haram does not represent muslims. More deaths and terrorist attacks have been blamed or claimed by Boko Haram than Daesh but the west doesn’t see nearly as many headlines about them as it does Daesh. The attacks in paris left around 130 innocent humans dead. Although, in january of 2015 Boko Haram killed more than 2,000 people and the world focused on the death of 12 people in the western country, France. According to The Telegraph, “at its height the tag (#jesuischarlie) was tweeted at a rate of 6,500 times a minute and featured in 3.4 million tweets in just one 24 hour period.” Despite over 2,000 people dying and more than 200,000 people being displaced by Boko Haram around the same time the terrorist group gets an obvious deficit when it comes to attention. The media needs to focus on all terrorist groups, not just the ones that kill in western, rich, mostly white countries. Boko Haram needs to be dealt with, or future generations will wonder why no one did anything to stop the massacres being committed by an obviously dangerous terrorist group.
