Skip to comments.The Muslims of the Central African Republic Face a Deadly Purge
Posted on 02/20/2014 6:20:19 AM PST by PapaBear3625
The anti-balaka have outgrown their name. These militias in the Central African Republic, once united under a moniker meaning anti-machete in the local Sango language, are exacting their own vicious revenge upon the mainly Muslim rebels who overthrew the government last March and waged months of terror against the Christian population. They are now accused of atrocities far worse than what first prompted them to take up arms.
An Amnesty International report on Feb. 12 said attacks on Muslims in January by anti-balaka militias, made up of Christians and animists, had amounted to ethnic cleansing. Fatou Bensouda, chief prosecutor at the International Criminal Court at The Hague, has already opened a preliminary investigation into crimes against humanity, saying some victims appeared to have been deliberately targeted on religious grounds. A top U.N. official issued similar warnings during a recent visit to the ravaged capital, Bangui, telling reporters: There is an ethnic-religious cleansing taking place. It must be stopped.

Personally, I think the C.A.R. Christians are walking into a trap.
Yes, the Muslims are just 15% of the population of CAR. But CAR borders Muslim-majority Chad and Sudan, and this gives them an excuse to invade CAR (to "protect the oppressed Muslims") and seize the northern oil fields
good to see Christians and non Muslims rising up to the muslim butchers
I love good news!
While it would be best that the moslems repent and convert and be saved (and they should be given a week or two to do so), we all know that they cannot be trusted as their religion commands them to lie.
The only way for peace to have a chance is for all the moslems to die.
Shoe is on the other foot now. Watch the UN throw a fit.
Yeah, but when the fanatical towelhead bearded savages attacked and murdered Christians they didn’t give a danm!
If you read your history, you’ll find that the Christian Crusades were the direct result of persecution of Christians living in Muslim countries.
So, the next time somebody points to the Crusades as an example of how utterly horrible Christians are, please just invoke Ronald Reagan and say, ‘Well, there you go again...’.
ohoh... muslims are now the victims... expect Obama and the UN to jump right in now!
Violent protests aren't going to make the change to create anything better. In all of these countries, reasonable concessions were made, yet the protests become more radical and more bloodthirsty.
I'm sickened with what's going on in Syria and now Ukraine. By now, it should be obvious that Egypt got it right. It's going to take violent responses to stop this slide to global chaos.
Was there any Amnesty International outrage when the Christians were being macheted? Or how about all the torture and inhumanity in North Korea that Mark Levin was talking about at the beginning of his show last night?
Well... Slime Magazine... where are the stories about ongoing atrocities by muslim knuckledraggers against Christians in Egypt, Pakistan, Iraq, Iran, Syria and every other muslim-dominated hellhole on earth?
Atrocities against the peaceful Muslims? Sucks to be them, I guess.
Sounds to me like this is a good start...
Ukraine having essentially zero Muslims, I’m not sure how the conflict there is relevant.
I’ll start to care about this when the world starts to care about the slaughter of Christians. I don’t know why, but I just can’t get my hands on the multitude of articles that TIME has published about the killing of Christians. /s
A (slightly) indirect result of fracking.
The conflict in the Ukraine is relevant and of even greater concern precisely because the Ukraine is not Muslim. It’s the same scenerio of starting out as a peaceful protest and rapidly escalating into chaos and total destruction. It’s not about changing things, it’s about destroying what exists and replacing it, by violent thugs who don’t seem to care about the rule of law or the civilization they’re destroying. Whenever that happens, just as in the Muslim dominated protests, the results are not going to be beneficial.
Nothing like a Christian crusade to exterminate Muslim vermin in the CAR. Go Crusaders!
Translation from Time:
Christians are fighting back and giving as well as they get. The HORROR!
