Muslims Riot in Nigeria; 40 churches burned, many dead
« on: April 19, 2011, 10:32:00 PM »

Washington, D.C. (April 19, 2011) – International Christian Concern (ICC) has learned that Muslim rioters have killed more than 100 Christians and burned down more than 40 churches in an attack that began yesterday in response to the election of Jonathan Goodluck, a Christian, as president of Nigeria. The rioters even destroyed the homes of many Muslims who supported President Jonathan Goodluck.

Post-election riots in northern Nigeria have left many dead, thousands displaced and hundreds wounded amid claims that bodies had been thrown into wells in areas hit by unrest...

An estimated 25,000 have been displaced and some 375 wounded, according to the Red Cross. Police said dozens of people had been arrested.

"What may come out of there is not very palatable because many people were killed, especially in southern Kaduna. The displaced people are getting hostile because nothing is coming up in terms of relief."

...another good example from the religion of "peace".

Muslim candidate loses to a Christian = slaughter all the Christians!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
—St. Isaac of Syria
