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!
The head-chopping-happy moozlums are portrayed as “peaceful”. They are getting what they deserve for their long history of aggressively murdering others. They deserve to be dead in peace.
Who pays the piper calls the tune. Amnesty International and the UN aren’t about human rights. They’re all about anti-Americanism, anti-capitalism and statism. In ecological terms they’re watermelons.
We know where Obama stands on this.
Yes, the Mohammedans peacefully lop-off heads and peacefully burn villages...in the name of peace. Yeah, that’s the ticket!
They ARE peaceful. Islam says peace will happen when there is absence of opposition to Islam. The jihadis are all energetically pursuing peace.
Wow. You consider those protesting in Kiev to be only “violent thugs who dont seem to care about the rule of law or the civilization theyre destroying.”
I’ve seen no evidence of this, only of extreme government repression and some degree of protestor retaliation.
I guess the same applies to those at Tienanmen Square. Anybody who protests against tyrannical governments must be crushed to protect civilization.
This POV would have brought a screeching halt to the American Revolution, you known. OTOH, for the initially similar French Revolution this POV was exactly right.
Kind of makes you wonder who the major funders of Amnesty International are and if that just might effect their reports. The media always severs mammon.
These are not peaceful protestors we're seeing, burning down an historic city and using a truce as a way to extend the violence.
Didn't a majority vote for the government they have?
Not from reports. There was probable vote fraud and now illegal power grabbing by the President. Sorta on the same lines as what we have here.
I agree Ukraine is in a tough place.
I suspect from the perspective of the protesters, being gobbled up yet again by the Russian bear is a lot more problematic than enduring the soft embrace of Euro banksters.
Europeans, after all, have never killed many millions of Ukrainians. Russians have, within the last century.
Enemy of my enemy and all that.
When Time writes even one story about the Christian genocide in the Middle East, I will begin to care.
Love to see a “purge “ of them here too
Muslim atrocities = good.
Christian pushback = bad.
The Crusades were a mixed bag, but they were indeed a defensive war.
“ethnic cleansing” Um, no. Self defense.
Islam is a religion unless its really a criminal enterprise.
“The arrow that they intended for others has entered their own liver.”
Now that the CAR Christians are showing their teeth no one is going to bother their oil fields——they just have to dig in and continue to defend themselves.
Purge the Satanists.
The best way to end this is to ensure that the ‘anti-balaka’ group is well and properly armed. Sooner or later, the hostilities will diminish.
Sorta? The parallels are uncanny. Romney = the soft socialism of the EU. BO = the hard Marxism choice. Some choice, eh?
According to the article, the muslim “rebels” were supported by Muslim soldiers from the Armies of Chad and Sudan - overthrowing the CAR government, installing a muslim president and systematically discriminating against and attacking non-muslims - an extension of the jihad that the government of Sudan has been conducting since back when they were hosting Usama bin Laden. Since the Government of Sudan is the employer of Barak’s brother Malik Obama, I’d guess our government will make another stand in defense of the jihadis.
Moslems getting a taste of their own medicine... What a shame... Not.
Don’t stop till they’re gone.
When you get a chance, read Spencer’s Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam and the Crusades.
The moslems and the left HATE the guy; ergo, he’s over the tarrget.
The pattern seems to be:
(1) Muslims go into an area.
(2) When numbers are sufficient, they attempt to take over.
(3) If there is resistance or push-back, the imams screech "Muslims are being oppressed", and motivate Muslims from all over to converge to the place where resistance is happening.
This is why I said in my first comment, that I think this is an attempt to provide an excuse for Chad and Sudan to invade.
This is probably another Goldstone type report replete with anti-western propaganda and outright lies. I even think Amnesty International contributed to the creation of the Goldstone lies.
The muslims have sowed the wind and shall now reap the whirlwind.
Was Time-Lies-Warner-Turner surprised that Islamists conquered the nation to begin with?
After all, Time famously declared God to be “dead” in the 1960s.
Why should it only be a week or two? Conversions like this often taker months or years. What happens to those who do convert; how are we supposed to act towards them then? What happens to those who instead decide to become agnostic, Hindu, Sufi, Buddhist, Animist, Pagan or something else? Not saying I don’t support African Christians taking out he trash when they have to - I definitely do - but how would that work?
