Cartoons in Nigeria: 15 Churches Burned, 15 Killed

 

Security forces arrested dozens of people in Maiduguri 1000 miles north of Lagos Nigeria. Thousands of rioters burned 15 churches in three-hour rampage. 15 people were also killed.

“Most of the dead were Christians beaten to death on the streets by the rioters.” Witnesses said three children and a priest were among those killed.
According to a count by the AP at least 45 people have been killed across the muslim world so far.

Nigeria has a population of more than 130 million and is roughly divided between a mainly Christian south and a predominantly Muslim north. The violence occured in the North.

  More info in source  
 
The source has a lot more stuff in Italy, a quote by the son of gadafi in libya, and diplomatic missions.

Apparently an italian minister was asked to resign for wearing a T-shirt with a cartoon. Some sources say he resigned and some say he refused to quit.

This area in Nigeria also happen to be a hot spot since 2000.

  Christians Dead!???? ATTACK!  
 
Wait, what was that? They were only Africans? Well, forget about it.

*extremely strong sarcasm*
 
  by: theironboard     02/19/2006 01:37 PM     
  It's  
 
so much more acceptable to beat children to death, than to publish social commentary. Isn't that right, Fratley?
 
  by: lauriesman     02/19/2006 01:38 PM     
  Wow...  
 
...how long is this going to go on for. Surely it has to stop sometime even if the cartoonists are not killed.

  Interdiction  
 
Maybe we should interdict Nigerian products. Oh wait. They don't produce squat. Oh shit. The states get 5-10% of their oil from there. Frig!!
 
  by: kmazzawi     02/19/2006 03:13 PM     
  I say  
 
that its time to start an 'eye for an eye' program. For every non-muslim killed because of this silly cartoon, then one muslim should be killed.
People should start taking a stand against violent muslims.

great idea....let the circle of death begin.
I'm glad you don't govern anything.

  @sp00ky187  
 
Sure spooky, I hope you are the one governing. /End Sarcasm

  @lauriesman  
 
Ha, why can't you just accept that bad things have causes? I don't need to justify something in order to acknowledge it.
 
  by: Fratley   02/19/2006 09:43 PM     
  Pathetic...  
 
These Muslims are the scum of the earth.

"I Say that its time to start an 'eye for an eye program."

Why don't we just kill 25,000+ innocent Americans because of those innocents Iraqi's killed? Ignorance will be the death of us all.

  So...  
 
"How dare those cartoonists stereotype us Muslims as violent, aggressive, hateful and barbaric its an outrage!... Now Rahul, hold this child down while I cave his skull in with this iron bar! For the Religion of peace!"

ho hum

No Spooky. I am saying that if I was a minority and lived in city right beside Maiduguri right this moment I would hope my leader is not a pussy. Considering how small the planet is I might as well be living beside Maiduguri.

  i'm a bit confused...  
 
does western = christian or specifically does danish reporter = christian??
why are the followers of the "peaceful islam" killing christians.. or anyone for that matter?
 
  by: wayfarer     02/20/2006 01:40 PM     
  because  
 
"peaceful islam" seems to be an oxymoron.

Christopher you are either plain stupid or retarded. Let’s say some Christian kills my brother, do u think its right for me as an atheist to kill one of your family member. If yes I didn't know Germany still has Hitler.

I have seen all 12 cartoons, its obvious they are NOT meant to be funny. But that doesn’t give some zealots a right to burn buildings and worse kill someone.These rioters should all be hanged.

I have met many Nigerian foreign students here in US. As far as I have seen most of them hold extreme religious views whether Muslim or Christian. Nigerians need to work on their society instead of grabing all the oil loot and running to states.Their biggest exports are oil and 419. look up the no. 419 in google if you don't know.

  Heh...  
 
I think these idiots are making the cartoons seem pretty accurate. Especially the one with the arabs charging, swords and bombs and the cleric raises his hand and goes "Relax folks, its just a sketch made by a Dane from the south-west Denmark" --Overall I thought they were hillarious!!

You said: "Christopher you are either plain stupid or retarded. Let’s say some Christian kills my brother, do u think its right for me as an atheist to kill one of your family member. If yes I didn't know Germany still has Hitler."
Then:

"I have seen all 12 cartoons, its obvious they are NOT meant to be funny. But that doesn’t give some zealots a right to burn buildings and worse kill someone.These rioters should all be hanged."


Ummm...Hypocrite?! How's that any better?

  @jediman3  
 
"These rioters should all be hanged."
-- i was talking about the people who kill on the basis of religion.

I have nothing against peaceful protests.
 
  by: evox777   02/20/2006 10:09 PM     
  You don't seem to understand...  
 
How are you any better than those that are causing the issue? Eye for an eye? Grow up..
 
  by: jediman3     02/20/2006 10:35 PM     
  Both the Koran and Bible have laws against killing  
 
They both start with Adam and Eve. Both have very similar laws.

Zealots, both Christian and Muslim kill and use their religion to shield their guilt and will have to face their God for their crimes when their time comes.
 
  by: ericcode   02/20/2006 10:59 PM     
  @jediman3  
 
I am not better then them. I am less safe. The moderate muslims are also less safe. Their turn is next when the fanatics are done with christians, they always turn on their own.
 
  by: kmazzawi     02/21/2006 03:07 AM     
  @eric  
 
"Both the Koran and Bible have laws against killing"
You mean laws to order killing.

"and will have to face their God for their crimes when their time comes."
To earn their reward.

  Is anyone else  
 
enjoying the irony of these muslims making cartoon true?

P.C. time. Yes I realize that not all muslims are violent. However I'm assuming that this cartoon was commenting only on the ones who are. And that is the only group of muslims I am poking fun at. These violent guys who proclaim the cartoon is evil because it portrays Muhammed and themselves as violent fanatics then go out and burn down a church.
