Al Jazeera Buries Cause Of Nigerian Riots

From those models of unbiased journalism at Al Jazeera:

Nigeria vote to proceed despite riots

21 Apr 2011

Nigeria’s president says next week’s elections for governor will go ahead as planned, despite deadly riots in the north that have left at least 200 people dead. Goodluck Jonathan said on Thursday that order is being restored to the country ahead of next Tuesday’s gubernatorial polls…

Rioting erupted in major northern cities after incumbent Jonathan, who heads the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), was declared winner of the presidential poll with 57 per cent of the ballots, easily beating his rival, Muhammadu Buhari, with 31 per cent.

An estimated 40,000 people have been displaced in the violence in the country’s mostly-Muslim north.

You see? It’s the Muslims who have suffered.

A Nigerian civil rights group based in the northern state of Kaduna put the number of deaths in the unrest at more than 200 across the north, after rioting broke out on Sunday… There were reports of fresh clashes in an area of Kaduna overnight, with a community leader telling local radio "the killing was unbelievable and the destruction is colossal".

Analysts have said that the upcoming governorship elections could hold the most risk of violence. Governors have significant power in Nigeria, granted huge budgets due in part to oil revenue.

Jonathan’s election rival Buhari, a northerner, has alleged irregularities in the presidential vote. He said people just "reacted to the results" and said he did not know what triggered the violence.

"It was so spontaneous that I didn’t know about it. I did not ask them to start it, but I asked them to stop, especially the burning of churches and other religious places."

You see? It was just "spontaneous." In actuality, these ‘riots’ are the northern Muslims killing and burning any Christians they can get their hands on. As well as their churches.

Observers have largely said that Saturday’s presidential election appeared to be fair, and was a significant improvement over last elections 2007.

Al Jazeera’s Yvonne Ndege reporting from Kaduna, which has been hit by some of the worst violence, said the violence has been based along religious lines.

"There are Muslims here, there are Christians here. There are those out there who are prepared to use religion to target opponents," she said.

You see? Both sides are equally to blame.

"What is underneath all of this is the feeling and the sense that the president should not have run in the 2011 race because of an informal agreement that says the North is supposed to produce the next president

You see? The evil Christians did not abide by the "feeling and sense" that the president should come from the North. – That is, that he should be a Muslim.

But why bother to have even elections if you have an "informal agreement"?

In point of fact, this is a religious war where, the northern Muslims have declared war on the Christian south. The Muslims are trying to impose Sharia Law on the entire country. Indeed, every state carried by Mr. Jonathan’s opponent in the primaries (in red) is already under Sharia Law:

But you would never know that from the completely objective Al Jazeera. (See the YouTube report at the top.)

Of course you wouldn’t know that from the AP or Reuters or the New York Times, either.

    Liberals are jealous that they don’t have the guts to be as aggressive as muslim terrorists.

    You can clearly see the fawning gratitude they exhibit to their foreign brothers.
