Nigeria: Charred bodies line road as Muslims rampage after Muslim candidate loses election
A Muslim mob hunts down Christians in Nigeria (TROP)
“We will never accept any system of governance apart from the one described by Islam because that is the only way Muslims can be liberated,” the fliers said. “We do not respect the Nigerian government because it is illegal.
“We will continue to fight its military and police because they are not protecting Islam.”
Atlas Shrugs: KADUNA, Nigeria (AP) â€” Burned corpses with machete wounds lay in roads and smoke rose above this city where rioting broke out again Tuesday among Muslim opposition supporters who were angered by the announcement that the Christian incumbent president had won the election.Â READ More atÂ The Hive hat tipÂ Urban Infidel
Why are we fighting for jihad in Libya? Why Libya? If we are going to militarily intervene, let’s start savingÂ the Christians, Jews, Hindus and all non-Muslims from Islamic supremacism. Why are we helping to install a universal caliphate?
Note how AP never identifies the perpetrators who are rioting, burning people to death, and torching churches. It is obvious since the outrage all stems from the Muslim candidate losing the election, but AP doesn’t dare state the obvious. The only time it identifies anyone who does any of the actions in this story is when it can cast Islam in a favorable light: “An armed mob at a bus station also threated another evangelical pastor before a Muslim man nearby spirited him to safety.” This is typical mainstream media coverage: Muslims can never be identified as such when they are doing evil in the name of Islam or because of their self-identification as Muslims; their Muslim identity may only be mentioned when they’re doing something good or playing the role of victim.
The problem with this, besides the obvious bad faith, is that it misleads the public about the nature of the global jihad and Islamic supremacism. The consequent ignorance leads to complacency and misdiagnosis of the problem, resulting in numerous policy mistakes that only embolden the Islamic supremacists further.
