They Kill Christians Don't They?

So far no Jews have been implicated. It looks like another job of Islam Inc.

JOS, Nigeria — Angry Muslim youths set a church filled with worshippers ablaze in northern Nigeria, starting a riot that killed at least 27 people and wounded more than 300 others in the latest religious violence in the region, officials said Monday.

About 5,000 people lost their homes as rioters also burned mosques and homes in Jos, a city that saw more than 300 residents killed during a similar uprising in 2008, said local Red Cross official Auwal Muhammad Madobi. He said he had no information about deaths. Police officials declined to offer a count of the dead.

Sani Mudi, a spokesman for the local imam, said 22 people died Sunday after rioters set fire to a Catholic church, starting a daylong wave of violence between Christians and Muslims. Five others died Monday from their wounds, and police and soldiers set up numerous road blocks throughout Jos.
Now here is the really good part of the story.
The rioting began Sunday, when the youths attacked a church, said Gregory Yenlong, a state government spokesman. Yenlong said he didn't know why the young men set the blaze.
Some of the locals seem to have some ideas though.
Musa Pam, secretary of a local Christian elders forum, issued a statement Monday claiming the Muslim youths picked Sunday to launch their attack because they knew Christians would be worshipping at church. He asked the police to bring the killers to justice, because Christians were being attacked without cause.
I think the cause might have been that they were Christians. Of course killing Jews would have been better but Nigeria is not a rich country and the locals have to work with local materials.

In any case the idea that Islam has bloody borders is well known. You can find the bloody borders of Islam on this map. And the countries of Africa on this map.

Do some Muslims live in peace with their neighbors? Of course. But some are always looking for a fight and Islam seems to give them an excuse.
