A Blasphemous Response To Murderous Islamofascism

Nothing can justify these evil and unChristian actions in response to the murderous rampage of Nigerian Muslims. While the article presents this as a religious conflict, part of me wonders the degree to which tribal affiliations and enmities were at work in this

AN enraged mob of Nigerian Christian youths has slaughtered dozens of Muslims in two days of rioting in the southern city of Onitsha.

Rioting broke out in the lawless trading town on the banks of the Niger River yesterday when members of the Igbo tribe launched revenge attacks in response to an earlier massacre of Christians in the north of the country.

Nineteen corpses were seen scattered by the side of the main road into the city across the Niger River bridge, where a contingent of soldiers had set up a roadblock to hold back hundreds of rioters armed with clubs and machetes.

The bodies had been beaten, slashed and in some cases burnt. Around the bloodied corpses lay scattered the caps and Islamic prayer beads associated with the northern Hausa tribe.

A police official had earlier said five more Hausas had been killed in the neighbouring city of Asaba, across the bridge, to where thousands of Muslims fled to escape the mayhem in Onitsha.

Frank Nweke, a magazine editor who ran the gauntlet of the mob to escape Onitsha and made it to the bridge, said he had seen 15 more corpses lying in the streets of the city.

"Some of them had been beheaded, others had had their genitals removed. I saw one boy holding a severed head with blood dripping from it," he said.

Army officers at the scene could not confirm a total death toll in the city, where control has not yet been restored, but said thousands of Muslims had taken shelter in barracks and police stations.

May God aid the Nigerian authorities in bringing these so-called Christians to justice for their crimes. Their deeds blaspheme against the teachings of Jesus Christ, who taught turning the other cheek -- for in the end, the source of the conflict matters less than the evil deed committed.

Comments on A Blasphemous Response To Murderous Islamofascism

Typical American!

Without understanding nor even caring to understand the circumstances behind muslim-christian violence in Nigeria.

Probably writing from the comfort of your suburban home.

You write anything that comes to your mind.

Without knowing that:

1. There is a more than 40 year old history of Muslim on Christian violence in Nigeria.
2. That Christians have been killed(in hundreds) for things as mundane as; Hosting Miss World Beauty Pageant in Nigeria, "Defacing the Quran" and lastly "Danish Cartoons".
3. Christians have turned the other cheek for 40 years.

What do you know about Nigeria? Do you even care about Nigeria?

What gives you the right to write with self assured confidence

While conceding I am not an expert on Nigeria, I will claim more than a passing knowledge of Nigeria based upon:

1) Study of African history and politics while earning my BA in History and MS in political science.

2) Continued reading in those areas.

3) Discussions with Nigerian classmates -- including seminary classmates who now serve in parishes back in their homeland.

4) Familiarity with Scripture and Christian theology.

Rest assured -- acting like the Muslim mob for revenge is a blasphemy against all that Christians hold sacred -- as is your handle. Please remember that "He did it first" is not a moral justification for murder in Christianity.

And please note -- I do bring up the tribal aspects of the confluct, which only serve to inflame the situation.

So please check your arrogance at the door.

You have probably studied African History and African Politics.

Our pain is deep, it cannot be studied. It can only be experienced.

There is a time to keep quiet and ALLOW THOSE WHO ARE EXPERIENCING THE PAIN TO TALK.




When America was attacked on September 11, what did America do?

|| Posted by Nigerian_Christian, February 23, 2006 06:26 PM ||

We attacked those who attacked us -- but not all Muslims and not all Arabs. We did not conduct a war of religion, with God as the excuse for wholesale murder.

Now I would like to ask you this -- do you see the current situation as more one of religious conflict or tribal conflict -- or are the factors balanced equally.
