Muslim Troops Slaughter 1,000 Catholics In Ivory Coast


At least 1,000 Christians were slaughtered this week in at the Salesian Saint Teresa of the Child Jesus mission in Duekou, Ivory Coast by Muslim troops loyal to Alassane Ouattara. The state-run media has been slow to report the facts.

The conflict in Ivory Coast began in 2002. The country is divided between the Muslim north and Christian south.

This is a conflict that has been brewing for years.

Troops loyal to Alassane Ouattara, the Muslim opposition leader, moved south this past week. They slaughtered 1,000 civilians in Duekoue last week. The victims were mostly men who were shot as they fled the city.

Business Week reported:

Charity workers who reached Duekoue said it appeared the killings had taken place in a single day, shortly after the town fell to troops loyal to Alassane Ouattara, the man internationally-recognised as having won last year’s presidential election.

Christians slaughtered by Muslims? Not a chance Obama is doing a thing.

The Muslims (38% of the population) won a two man election (I won’t say it was ”fair and square”) against the Christians (33%) and animists (12%) and non-religious (17%) people of the Cote d’Ivore.

But there was a lot of fear of what Muslims would do to the non-Muslims if they took power.
(I cannot imagine why!)

Yo Ho. Hey CAIR, where are you? Come out come out wherever you are. Any comments about the religion of peace?

To the Jews and Christians, especially Roman Catholics, in Africa- arm yourselves.
Weapons that are properly used, do create space and respect.

To paraphrase Admiral Yamamoto, on the Imperial Japanese invasion of the Western US and marching on to Washington- impossible. There’s a weapon behind every cactus between San Francisco and Chicago.

This is the first time I have heard that these are Christians. Is anyone seeing much about this story on the news anywhere?
