Woman Honor Thyself

When women are depressed, they either eat or go shopping. Men invade another country. It's a whole different way of thinking. --Elaine Boosler

At Least 15 Die in Nigeria Cartoon Protest

Nigeria has a population of more than 130 million. It is roughly divided between a predominantly Muzlim north and a mainly Christian south.

In MAIDUGURI, Nigerian Muzlims protesting caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad (real shocker eh?...)attacked Christians and burned churches on Saturday, killing at least 15 people in the deadliest confrontation yet in the whirlwind of Muzlim anger over the drawings.

It was the first major protest to erupt over the issue in Africa's most populous nation. An Associated Press reporter saw mobs of Muslim protesters swarm through the city center with machetes, sticks and iron rods. One group threw a tire around a man, poured gas on him and set him ablaze.
In Libya, the parliament suspended the interior minister after at least 11 people died when his security forces attacked rioters who torched the Italian consulate in Benghazi.

Thousands of rioters burned 15 churches in Maiduguri in a three-hour rampage before troops and police reinforcements restored order, Nigerian police spokesman Haz Iwendi said.

Chima Ezeoke, a Christian Maiduguri resident, said protesters attacked and looted shops owned by minority Christians, most of them with origins in the country's south.

"Most of the dead were Christians beaten to death on the streets by the rioters," Ezeoke said. Witnesses said three children and a priest were among those killed.

For those of us still counting: At least 45 people have been killed in protests across the Muzlim world, according to a count by The Associated Press.

Muzlim terrorists are committing mass violence, arson and murder across globe.
For pitys sake it is high time we look hard at the dark places of the Muzlim world that the mainstream media and liberals seem determined to look away from.
Their rage and destruction know no bounds.

Sure, let the liberals convince themselves that these priest and baby killers are merely desperate dissidents fighting for truth and freedom against the dark night of Western Civilization.

They claim the "images" cut like knives, so they draw their machetes against human flesh.
They claim the "images" signify ideas, so they formulate the idea of setting a human being ablaze.

Clearly the Muzlims have thus far established themselves and support behavior in which human respect for the value of life, dialogue, civility and a determination to resolve global problems within the community of nations have been laid aside. And knives, torches and machetes have been lifted up.

And their ultimate goal is some kind of resolution?
Please say your'e not serious.
My stomach can't take much more of this.

    Excellent post, Angel! It is hard to imagine a people who get so upset over ink and paper, but see nothing wrong with hacking someone's head off or driving airplanes full of passengers into crowded skyscrapers. It is unfathomable.
