Op-Ed: Islam in Africa: The Invisible Genocide of Christians
Arutz Sheva ^ | Giulio Meotti

Posted on 05/07/2012 5:32:07 AM PDT by Eleutheria5

The UN does nothing, the world is silent, and most Western citizens, who know little about Africa, do not know it is happening. The goal is creating a big African-Islamic continent. Christians must be killed or expelled.

Fom Nigeria to Sudan, it is raging, the “Odium Fidei”, the war of religion.

A genocide epitomized not by the images of Sydney Pollack’s “Out of Africa”, which presents a continent that is rich and attractive, but by the Nigerian village of Dogo Nahawa, where Islamists, armed with machetes, killed 300 Christians, mostly women and children.

The Nigerian Nobel Prize Laureate for Literature, Wole Soyinka, called them “the butchers of Nigeria”.

It’s an invisible genocide where sadistic killers slaughter and execute thousands of Christians.

According to Philip Jenkins, a leading expert on Christianity, in Nigeria, what is at stake is the balance between Islam and Christianity. It’s the largest Muslim country of Africa, a global leader in oil production and a country where the future of religious cohexistence is precarious, since the country is divided in a half between Islam and Christianity.

The Islamic conquest of Africa began in the seventh century, when the Umayyads spread the faith in the Mediterranean lands which had long been Byzantine. But in deeper Africa, the penetration was difficult and for centuries Islam was unable to climb over the Horn of Africa.

Gambia, Senegal and Mauritania are already 90 percent Islamized.

Now, with modern methods of warfare, we are witnessing a wave of Islamization with unforeseeable, tragic consequences. The "Islamic project" is trying to build a unique ‘adan' (Islamic call for prayer) from the Libyan minarets to the Juma Mosque in Durban, South Africa.

Yeah, but Col. Sholem Eisner smacked a Dane with his rifle on camera, and his life hasn't even been ruined yet. What's a little genocide compared to that?/s

It would be nice if Israel would show more concern about ethnic cleansing of Christians in its own back yard, and stop what it’s been doing to help it along — a move that would be strongly in its own strategic interest.

Submitted by admin on 21 June, 2005 - 14:02 While the life of a slave is like hell, there is no shame in being a slave; it is not a choice. There is only shame in being a “master.” If any one is to feel shame for the suffering of the people of the Sudan who have lost 3.5 million lives at the hands of a barbarous regime, it is the radical Muslims in Khartoum and their Islamist allies throughout Sudan and across the whole of the Islamic world.

We need to stop sending bibles and food and send machine guns and ammo.

I 100% agree. But the really dangerous part about the rise of fascism is that nobody has the courage to stand up to it when it’s manageable. Until it’s an imminent, deadly crisis, it’s ignored due to a combination of apathy and fear.

Sounds like a great business model for a non-profit, but I’m guessing that it would be in violation of export laws.
