The Proof Is In The Pudding - Update

This is an update to a previous post regarding the burning of several Christian churches in Dutse, Nigeria last week.

Original reports were that ten churches were set afire during Muslim rioting. Muslims justified the violence and arson by claiming that a Christian girl had insulted the Muslim prophet Mohammed.

World Net Daily reported today that an investigation has uncovered the true damage done by the Muslim gang of rioters.

Muslims destroyed 18 Christian churches, 20 Christian owned homes and dozens of Christian shops in the Nigerian city of Dutse. The Christian group Voice of the Martyrs is reporting that the Muslim violence has displaced nearly 5,000 Christians, and at least 40 Christian shops were destroyed in the capital city of the state of Jigawa, Nigeria.

The Voice of the Martyrs investigation reported that the violence began;

"After an Islamic young man made several unsuccessful advances on Jummai, a female Christian, he angrily reacted by calling her a fake Christian who follows a 'useless Jesus. Jummai responded by telling the boy he followed a 'useless prophet – Muhammad'. Furious, the Muslim boy raised alarm through the town by proclaiming that a Christian lady blasphemed Muhammad. She was quickly taken to the local police station where she was kept in custody to diffuse the potentially volatile situation," the report said.

The report went on to say that after several hours, the Muslim man returned to the police station with a "militant band of friends" and incited them to attack police by claiming the woman wasn't being punished after her "insult" to Muhammad.

Nigerian officials said that the government ended up imposing a nighttime curfew and deploying soldiers in tanks and trucks to suppress further violence.

Voice of the Martyrs reported that a Christian man named Aderemi Ogunmola was beaten and slashed then doused with gasoline but was able to get away before he was set afire. Also, a Christian Pastor was trying to get away in his car, but was stopped by Muslims who burned his automobile as he escaped.

The Barnabas Fund, a Christian aid organization, said the rioting Muslims destroyed two-thirds of all Christian churches in the area. There were reports that even the state's governor himself was attacked when he tried to calm the mob.

The Barnabas Fund also reported that; "There have been attacks against Christians in the Palestinian territories, Somalia and Iraq."

Of course, all of this is rooted in Muslim reaction to Pope Benedict’s quoting of the 14th-century Byzantine emperor Manuel II Paleologus when he said;

“Show me just what Muhammed brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached."

Now, can someone explain to me how simply telling the truth, as Emperor Manuel II Paleologus did, justifies rioting, arson, and attempted murder?

The truth is what it is, and the truth is that Islam lusts for world domination.

Behold, The Religion of Peace.
