Jihad in Nigeria, Libya, Egypt


Muslims riot, torch churches, attack Christians after Muslim candidate loses presidential election

The reporting is dreadful: It’s purely coincidental that those unhappy with the results are all Muslims, and their victims Christian.

The violence is “neither ethnic nor religious,” and yet the “mobs” and the “protesters” seem to be targeting Christians specifically. “Deadly riots hit north Nigeria as results show Jonathan wins,” by Aminu Abubakar for AFP, April 18 (thanks to JW):

Egypt: Thousands of Muslims protest, block highways in rage over appointment of Christian governor

In the new modern, moderate, secular, democratic Egypt of the Arab Spring, Muslims in Qena are enraged and in their third day of protests because a Christian governor has been appointed for them. They say it’s because the last Christian governor “left a negative impression of Christian officials,” but coincidentally, Islamic law forbids non-Muslims to hold authority over Muslims. I am sure that has nothing, nothing, nothing whatsoever to do with these secular, democratic protests.

Its all our fault:

Iran’s Thug-In-Chief blames West for Middle East unrest

But wait, there’s more:

Now wait a minute. Iran’s Supreme Leader said in February that the Middle East uprisings were (according to al-Jazeera) “the reverberations of Iran’s 1979 Islamic revolution.” And now the Thug-In-Chief is saying that they’re all the West’s fault?

Who can straighten this guy out?

Islamic Identity Realized:

“Muslim Brotherhood is trying to lead Egyptian society towards realization of Islamic identity by awakening people”

This is the group that the abysmally clueless James Clapper, the Director of National Intelligence described as “largely secular.”

One thought on “Jihad in Nigeria, Libya, Egypt”

  1. Nigeria: Muslim opposition candidate rejects election results, 40,000 displaced in violence

    “We left our homes for fear of attacks from the mobs,” said a Christian woman in Kano. “Jonathan rival rejects vote result as thousands flee Nigeria unrest,” from the Daily Nation, April 20 (thanks to JW):

    The Muslim opposition candidate in Nigeria’s presidential polls rejected the results today but urged calm after deadly post-election riots, amid a rush to help nearly 40,000 displaced.
    Authorities say many were killed in the violence, which saw corpses burnt beyond recognition and bodies reportedly thrown into wells, but have refused to give a toll, saying it could spark reprisals and would be inaccurate.

    There were reports of fresh clashes in the northern state of Kaduna overnight, with a community leader telling local radio “the killing was unbelievable and the destruction is colossal.”

    One government official, explaining authorities’ reluctance to release an overall death toll from since the vote on Saturday, said, “I wouldn’t like to use the term massacre… some places it was terrible.”

    Curfews and military patrols appeared to have brought an uneasy calm to many areas Wednesday as the thousands who fled their homes in fear took refuge at police and military barracks, sleeping in the open under trees.

    The Red Cross said it had counted around 410 people wounded in the violence that began sporadically in the country’s mainly Muslim north before spreading to some 14 states on Monday. […]

    Authorities have however argued that the rioting was not based on religion or ethnicity but was instigated by those unhappy with the victory of incumbent Goodluck Jonathan, a southern Christian.

    And why were they angry with Jonathan’s victory? Because he is a southern Christian, and they are northern Muslims who are enraged that he succeeded a Muslim and that a Muslim is not in power:

    Jonathan took over in May 2010 following the death of his predecessor Umaru Yar’Adua, a northern Muslim who had not finished his first term, prompting bitterness in the north over its loss of power.
    In the most intense rioting Monday, mobs roamed the streets with machetes and clubs, pulling people out of cars and setting homes on fire. Reprisal attacks intensified the situation.

    For fear of attacks

    In the main northern city of Kano, a Christian woman taking refuge at a police station said she had fled through back alleys with her three children after she saw smoke and heard shouting.

    “We left our homes for fear of attacks from the mobs,” said Mary Okechukwu, 36. “Many have gone back to their homes, but … I will not risk my life and that of my children.”…


    Nigerian president: Violence after Muslim lost election “was not a spontaneous reaction”

    Indeed it wasn’t, on many levels. As with the rampages in Afghanistan and Pakistan that used the Qur’an burning in Florida as a pretext (which, ironically, wound up burning untold numbers of Qur’ans in the process), the inclination toward violence was already there, waiting for another excuse to make a show of force and abuse non-Muslims. And as with those “protests,” we have seen that even the flimsiest of pretexts will do. If it is not one excuse du jour, it might be the next day’s “provocation” or “humiliation.”

    These incidents would not happen — and would not keep happening — if not for an able and willing populace, and pre-existing hatred and intolerance of non-Muslims.

    Here, of course, there is another angle. It is quite reasonable for President Jonathan to surmise that many Muslims in the north were poised and ready to let loose once the votes were counted. The election results show the Muslim candidate didn’t stand a chance, but that didn’t matter: if the Muslims could win the election, Islamic law could advance that way. If they lost, they would attempt to advance Islamic law the old fashioned way, demanding concessions through violence and threats.

    “Nigeria election: President Goodluck Jonathan accuses,” from BBC News, April 21:

    The BBC’s Abdullahi Kaura Abubakar in Kaduna: “Political violence soon turned into a religious issue”
    Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan has said that the violence in the country that followed his re-election “was not a spontaneous reaction”.
    Tens of thousands of people have fled their homes because of the violence, says the Red Cross.
    “I don’t want to accuse anybody but we believe that people must be behind this,” Mr Jonathan told CNN.
    Poll runner-up Muhammadu Buhari denies instigating the “sad, unfortunate and totally unwarranted” events.
    Nigeria is divided by rivalry between the predominantly Muslim north and the mainly Christian south, which also have cultural, ethnic and linguistic differences – so much so that the presidency has often alternated between people who come from each of the two halves of the country, in an attempt to keep the peace.
    Riots broke out in the north after Mr Jonathan, a southerner, emerged as the winner of the presidential poll. A civil rights group says the unrest has left more than 200 dead, while hundreds of arrests have been made.
    Gen Buhari has said the Nigerian election commission’s computers were programmed to disadvantage his party in some parts of Nigeria.
    But he urged his supporters to refrain from attacks, saying: “It is wrong for you to allow miscreants to infiltrate your ranks and perpetrate such dastardly acts as the mindless destruction of worship places.
    “Needless to say, this act is worse than the rigging of the elections.”
    Umar Marigar of the Red Cross told the BBC on Wednesday that the number of displaced people had trebled in the last day – from 16,000 to 48,000, mainly in the north.
    But he said that, in the southern state of Anambra, 8,400 people had sought refuge at the Onitsha military barracks because they feared reprisal attacks against northerners.
    He added: ”The violent protests turn from political into ethno-religious crisis. As such, people might like to engage in retaliatory attacks. This is what we are always afraid of.” […]
    Mr Jonathan was declared winner of Saturday’s presidential poll, with the electoral commission saying he received about 57% of the vote with 22.5 million votes to General Buhari’s 12.2 million votes.
    International observers have said the election was reasonably free and fair
