Ivory Coast: MSM don’t speak about Islamist violence against Christians

From GP (found here):

Thousands of refugees from the Ivory Coast in Liberia are reporting that the the pro-Quattara Muslim rebels are killing people and raping women. They are killing “everyone and anyone.” There are even rumors of cannibalism.

From Sheila Reports:

Bishop Gaspard Béby Gnéba of Man, told the Vatican-based Fides news agency that in addition to the deaths, local buildings–including Church facilities such as parishes, schools and health clinics–have been looted and destroyed.

Since I knew that the North was Muslim and the South was Christian, I suspect something of the kind.

    … And even reading this terrible news, you can hear YET leftist assholes talking about “Islam as a religion of PEACE” (WTF?????). And when you address to this “people” and ask them why they don’t feel anything, the answer is: «It’s their guilt. If they were not Christians, they wouldn’t be killed». What a stupid argument…

      Heh, that’s similar to what those serial killers in TV series say: “You are in the wrong place at the wrong time”.

      It’s disgusting anyway…

    Ouattara’s militias have been involved in violence against defenseless civilian supporters of Gbagbo, including during the election itself. There were reports of voter intimidation and even murder against pro-Gbagbo people in areas subject to the control of pro-Ouattara forces. And, Ouattara’s forces are generally Muslim, while Gbagbo’s supporters are generally Christian.

    To be fair, though, I have not heard that this is a Muslim/Christian thing per se. However, we have not been getting anywhere near the whole story from the MSM, which seems bent on spinning the situation so Ouattara can ascend to the presidency of Côte d’Ivoire in clear violation of more than one Ivoirian law.

    I have been following this for months now: Ivory Coast.

    Claudia, do you have any solid information connecting Ouattara’s forces to Islamic rebel/guerrilla/terrorist groups in that part of Africa, or to any criminal organizations? I’m betting they get their weapons smuggled in from Burkina Faso. Also, since Gbagbo’s regime, at the highest levels, was not known to be involved in moving narcotics (mainly cocaine from South America toward Europe), I am betting Ouattara is involved in this. Specifically, I am betting that, under Ouattara, cocaine will move through Côte d’Ivoire to the Sahara and Sahel, and on to Europe, and that Afghan heroin and illegal arms shipments will move westward to the Americas. And, I am wondering if the unrest in Libya is an attempt to open up the other end of the Sahara/Sahel pipeline.

      I’m not saying this is Muslim vs Christian violence per se, Early Light, I’m saying that this is a component in the violence against normal Christians, who had fled the country by the thousands in recent weeks (specially to Liberia).

      No, I don’t have any solid information on that, in fact this is the first time I have heard something of the sort. But it’s not really shocking. These guys need weapons, so they are going to search for the people who are willing to sell them some (or to change them for other services, like help, for example).

      If I read something related to that, I will be posting about it…

      PS: Welcome back! 😀
