From Eric Dondero:
Media out of France, and other Western European sources are reporting on the massive violence taking place in Cote d'Ivoire. The American media is largely silent, or is covering the story as "communal conflicts."
In truth, Muslim Troops, followers of former prime minister and radical Islamist Alassane Ouattara, massacred 1,000 Christians, mostly men in the town of Duekoue, who were fleeing the fighting. They were attempting to reach a nearby Catholic Church for refuge. UN Troops were in the area. But those who did not move quickly enough towards the Church were mowed down by machine-gunners stationed on top of pick-up trucks, were burned alive, or were hacked to death with machetes.
FROM THE BBC
Reporter: "When we arrived on Thursday, it was already clear something horrible had happened. There were numerous corpses lying in the streets..."
Although the reporter describes the violence as "inter-ethnic," he inadvertently confirms an earlier Scottish Herald report that the perpetrators were mostly Muslim immigrants from Burkina-Faso. (At approx. the 1:40 minute mark).
The attackers seem to have been largely soldiers descended from Burkina Faso immigrant Muslim families loyal to Ouattara…EXTREMELY GRAPHIC VIDEO
A REPORT FROM A FRENCH MEDIA SOURCE
Meanwhile French Troops are entering the country to evacuate their citizens. There are conflicting reports that French Troops have taken control of the Airport in the largest city of Abidjan.
Additional Note - Papa Giorgio, a Christian libertarian and friend of this website, reports at his blog RPT:
When I first read about this (thanks to Drudge) the very first thing I did was follow the rabbit trail. I typed in “Alassane Ouattara Muslim” in Google search… guess what? These followers of Ouattara and Ouattara himself are Muslims. I thought to myself that most likely the people murdered were Christians. Guess what, Libertarian Republican has this story.UPDATE! Canadian Reuters, ABC News and the Washington Post have finally picked up on the story, just minutes ago. However, none of these major media are reporting that it was Muslims who killed the 1,000 Catholic civilians, but are rather portraying the violence as a "civil war," or a simple dispute over the recent presidential election.
