Boko Haram joins ISIS

There are two organizations of people in the news today whose level of evil staggers the imagination.  ISIS in Syria and Iraq is known for its beheadings, crucifixions, and massacres of the innocent.  Boko Haram in Nigeria is known for kidnapping Christian school girls and using them for sex slaves, as well as for its massacres of the innocent.  Now these two groups have joined forces.
