Intense Christian persecution in the Central African Republic ignored by the world

So apparently the Central African Republic had a successful coup at the end of March by Islamic militants and now the persecution of Christians has skyrocketed. Canada Free Press writes about the atrocities being committed by this new Islamic regime:

Christians in the Central African Republic are being targeted by Islamist militants who violently seized control of the country on March 24th. Although many have been killed or seriously wounded in the violence, others are being tied up, beaten and forced to hand over money to save their lives.

A pastor reports that this “reign of terror” is being conducted against Christians by the Seleka rebels. The church leader further explains that the rebels have a hit list of pastors and other Christian workers, and that places of worship are being attacked. Christian property is also being looted. As a result of the persecution, many Christians have fled to the countryside and are too fearful to return to their homes. More than 200,000 people are internally displaced, while 49,000 refugees have been registered in neighbouring countries.

On May 10th, Human Rights Watch released a report citing “grave violations” committed by the Seleka rebels against civilians, including pillage, summary executions, rape and torture. The organization also made reference to an attack on a funeral procession on the Ngaragba Bridge in Bangui on April 13th. As Seleka forces opened fire on the grieving crowd, a church leader was killed as he appealed for peace. An eyewitness vividly recalls the horrific event: “(The pastor) walked toward the Seleka elements on their pick-up, raising a Bible in his hand and calling to stop shooting…. (He) was shot dead by two Seleka fighters.”

The crisis in the Central African Republic has largely slipped under the radar of the world’s media, and the predominantly Christian population there feels abandoned by the international community.

    Wish we could trade our Muslims for all the Christians stuck in Islamic hell-holes.

      We have wasted too many American lives in Islamic infested places.
      Bring our military home and don’t send them any more US$$$.
      Islam should be banned.

        Lets bring every Westerner home and deport all muslims. Sounds like a hell of a good deal to me. Dump them all in Somalia for all I care.
        At a very minimum close every last mosque in the West.

      • lawngreen

        Conniption Fitz   I agree with everything you said here.

      • JohnCraven

        Conniption Fitz, you are absolutely right about not sending any more money to anymore Islamic hellhole countries, including Egypt and Turkey.  Let Saudi Arabia and the other Sheiks of the Middle East give them money and stop wasting ours.
        As far as us not fighting them where they are, we are going to fight them anyway whether here, as in Boston or in London, or elsewhere.  I prefer we fight them where they live and I think it has been Nero Obama who has been wasting American lives in this fight against the “religion of peace”.  As I understand it, more Americans have been killed or injured in Afghanistan since Nero Obama was immaculated than in the 8 previous years under George Bush. At the same time the knucleheads running the GOP in Congress haven’t done much to undo the terrorist damage that  Nero Obama has done here or elsewhere.  The GOP stands for almost nothing anymor and certainly doesn’t fight Nero Obama on foreign policy.
        This knucklehead in the White House is causing us to lose what was gained in Iraq and is giving away any hope of getting rid of the radical Islamic jihadist and world class haters of humanity with the insane policies like reading jihadists our Miranda rights half a world away.
        I pray everyday for our troops a world away.

    Let’s see someone whitewash this latest evil committed by Muslims.
    Islam = evil. Period.

    • lawngreen

      The Sentinel Easy:
      “Evil? Let the world know that these are poor muslims taking back the property that was stolen from them by the oppressive ruling class elitist fanatical fundamentalist exclusivist Christians. Of course some resisted, and the warriors of the merciful allah’s righteousness were forced to kill them or afflict their bodies for their souls’ sake, that they may find the path to nirvana ” – oops, sorry, wrong religion – “paradise, even though they are undeserving dogs and pigs.”
      I shoulda been a propagandist.

  • Army_Pilot1967

    In this particular situation muslims won’t be satisfied until they rule vast chunks of Africa, and they don’t care how many Christians they kill in that process.  And I doubt if we’ll see any outrage from the world news media on this.
    And the muslims aren’t going to just go away and leave the rest of us alone…no, they’ll continue their murderous ways forever unless they are eradicated.

    • Marridge

      Heck, Zippy is working on the USA….. His speech of yesterday pretty much outlined it.

      • AnnS

        Personally you are absolutly right.  As an Illinois Senator, obama went to Kenya and raised a million or so dollars for his cousin, odinga.  Whe odinga didn’t win, he started murdering villagers and burning Christians alive in their Churches.  obama; no comment.  When obama won Massachusetts during the election odinga was the first person obama called. 
        BTW:  The campaigning was based on if odinga was elected, obama would help him establish Sharia Law in Kenya.

        • JohnCraven

          AnnS, thanks for posting this.  What’s going on in the Central African Republic is very similar to what happened in Kenya when Nero Obama’s proxy candidate, Raila Odinga, the son of Odinga Odinga, lost the presidential election.  Nero Obama not only gave $1 million dollars to Odinga to run but Nero Obama convinced one of Col. Daffy Qaddafi sons to put up almost the same amount for Odinga to run against the incumbent president who was from the majority Kyuchi tribe while Odinga was from Nero Obama’s native Luo tribe and Odinga was, like his father, a hard-line Marxist guerilla who had a long history of guerilla warfare atrocities under his belt.
          Odinga lost because the Christian tribes discovered his secret agreement with the Muslims in Kenya to institute Sharia Law in Kenya after Odinga got elected but the Christian tribes knew better and didn’t vote for Nero Obama’s proxy Odinga and that’s when Odinga, with Nero Obama’s blessings, launched a waver of terror against the Kenyan president’s tribesmen.  And, as you said, Nero Obama did nothing to stop it.  What he did do was approach Condoleeza Rice and Kofi Anan about a deal where the violence would stop if Odinga was put in the government which eventually happened after a lot of pressure from the Bush administration.
          Sounds like the intimidation tactics Nero Obama is using with the IRS, doesn’t it?

          And thanks to you John; It is so encouraging to see so many well-formed on this forum.  Just wish our Congress was; if they care.  Rubio and “Cain” just passed funding to go to the rebels in Syria.  When will we ever learn after funding osama to fight the Russians and he turns around and attacks us:

      Army_Pilot1967    “eradicated” … I love the sound of that word.

  • Not a peep out of governments or the UN about this…  But if one Muzzie is killed in London in retaliation for the brutal murder of the soldier, all heck will break loose!  And the media will be saying “they were provoked” and “it’s understandable” and other bovine by product!

    • AnnS

      If obama has anything to do with it that may be our only course of action to protect ourselves, family, daughters and sons from rape and slavery.  Thatt is why the islamic world is using stealth jihad and creeping sharia via liberalism and PC garbage to take over this country, because they know Americans will fight back.  Already, sadly, some states have had to pass laws banning foreign government laws in our courts. We should print out and read the following as the article was written before 9/11 and they are on a fast track to up the percentages.

      RSFan   Full of hypocrites and championed by the U.N.  We must stop sending billions upon billions of American money to this Continent in the name of “humanitarianism”.  It winds up in the pockets of despotic regimes or Islamic terror states, the people never get any “relief” from our misguided efforts.  Of course with the administration currently in power in our country there is nothing “misguided” about it.  It is going exactly where the Muslim in the White House wants it to go.
      Liberalism is not only killing our country it’s poison is permeating throughout the world.

    Thanks for highlighting this long enduring tragedy. Where are all of these megachurch ‘pastors’ who preach ‘feel good new age’ Christianity focusing on all of the riches which supposedly come with annointing.  Oh that’s right they live securely and in spleandor in gated communtities.

      They’re too busy getting ready to “read a koran day”.    
      “………then they came for me”
      I get magazines from Voice of the Martyrs and Open Doors.  It is really bad in every Islamic country on the earth.  In Nigeria alone over 2,000 Christians have been murdered in the past 2 or three years.

    I recommend this article by Raymond Ibrahim:
    http://www.raymondibrahim.com/muslim-persecution-of-christians/why-christian-persecution-is-islams-achilles-heel/
    The global Leftists must ignore this kind of persecution, because it challenges the ongoing narrative of the Western and Non-Muslim world being the source of Islamic aggression.  Any evidence to contrary must be quelled, lest it damage their Sacred Cow of “Tolerance.”

  • K-Bob

    Until Amesty International or the UN takes notice, this kind of information is embargoed by the American media.
    But we all knew that.  What’s disturbing to me is how people like Pam Geller, Robert Spencer, David Horowitz, Melanie Phillips, and others who report on these brutal attacks are largely ignored by the conservatives in media, or even treated like the crazy uncle in the attic.

    • K-Bob

      I just looked up Melanie Phillips, because she doesn’t get much coverage by the right over here (andof course, zero by the left, who hate her), though she’s done some really good work on behalf of a saner world.  Turns out she’s started https://www.embooks.com/.  Some of the titles look pretty interesting.

    The only way it would make the news is if it was Christians attacking Muslims.

  • poptoy1949

    And our Kenyan in Chief has never said a word about any of this?  Could it be because the perps were MUSLIMS?

  • AnnS

    It really made me rage when I seen our Marine hold an unbrella for obama and Erdogan the other day:  This article is chilling as it reminds me of Hitler’s systematic extermination program.  (of course Turkey has always murdered Christians; Ref Armenian genocide, Young Turks (muslims)). And no doubt they help train the Nazi’s “Final Solution”
    “Christians were attacked across the country. To implement the strategic attacks, the country’s Christian population was mapped out and 939 key persons from different parts of the country were identified as potential targets.
    The fully detailed operation consists of four phases: preparation, spreading propaganda, shape opinion and execute
    Senior Turkish military officers had made extensive plans to terrorize non-Muslims in Turkey. In the large Ergenekon[1] scandal recently a well-planned terrorist operation was revealed. The operation which is called “Kafes Operasyonu Eylem Planı”, in English meaning “the execution of the cage – operation” was to eliminate the remaining small group of Christians living in Turkey today”

    Favorite killing tactics:  Double bombs..time the second bomb to go off when the rescue workers come in order to kill the medics, doctors and nurses.
    Islam is a barbaric, despicable political system.  It is a violent, aggressive  racist, misogynist hate group  Nothing holy about it.

    Bull crap. This didn’t “slip under the radar”. The media just won’t report it. Let’s pretend for a second that it was the Christians attacking, killing and torturing the MOOOOOSLIMS. Do you thing that would “slip under the radar???. This is infuriating.  I’m waiting for you to denounce this violence and call it what it is  Mr. hot-shot-phony commander in chief.  Yeah, right, any minute now.
