This is the News Analysis segment of the Voice of Biafra International (VOBI) broadcasts
For December 28, 2007
You have heard the news; now, the analysis…
Christmas Season already dwells among us. Let us Biafrans now allow ourselves to be caressed by it; let us allow ourselves to be covered by the gentleness, the grace and goodness of this Christmas Season. Let Christmas become us, and we, Christmas. Amen. And, that’s all of us: Biafrans and non-Biafrans alike, for Christmas knows no borders or boundaries. Amen.
Christmas is about Peace .The World is full of strife and struggles; Biafra’s struggle against Evil called Nigeria is one such struggle of Good against Evil. This struggle is ferocious; it is relentless. But, Christmas is a reminder that Struggle, no matter how fierce, will never overcome Peace; Christmas is our assurance that Peace triumphs over Strife--always; Christmas is the proof that Peace is enduring, to the end. So may we Biafrans be reminded this Season: Biafra shall know Peace; Biafra shall be at peace again. Amen. And, so shall the World—our Tormentor included. Amen.
“Goodwill!” is the Spirit of Christmas. Biafra and Biafrans have been so bruised and victimized by Nigeria that we have forgotten the term, Goodwill, and its meaning. We do not even know if we ourselves possess such a normally natural disposition anymore; quite certain, though, that Goodwill is NOT to be in any way or manner associated with our Tormentor, Nigeria. But, Christmas restores the promise and practice of Goodwill: may such be the promise and the practice in Biafra, and by Biafrans. Amen. And, since Christmas Goodwill—the only kind there really is—knows no bounds, may our Tormentor be touched, possessed of and changed by this Goodwill, too. Amen.
By the tradition of Christmas, Magic makes and becomes Reality; Wishes made come true. Christmas is a guarantee that Humanity will Wish; more so, that Humanity will find some way to fulfill her own Wishes; and characteristically, that Humanity will deliberately make this Season magical with the “good” Magic, by her magical actions. Biafrans have one collective wish this Christmas: Liberation from Nigeria, that we may finally enjoy our Freedom and Liberty. Christmas is the reassurance that we will deliver on that Wish: we will fulfill that Wish. Amen. In our own Liberty and Freedom, Nigeria may also know her own Liberty and Freedom, as will the rest of the World. Amen. Thus Biafra will make Magic and know the Magic of Christmas; as will Nigeria; as will the rest of the World. Amen.
This Christmas, it is our Wish that our revered brethren-heroes, the members of MASSOB in Nigeria’s prisons, including their leader, our adored Ralph Uwazurike, and their officials, such as our beloved Uchenna Madu, have their complete and unconditional freedom. It is our Wish that the world over, all similarly unjustly imprisoned persons have their full and unconditional release. In the Spirit of Christmas. In the name of Christmas. This Christmas.
Biafra alive! Because it is God Who makes it so!
