Muslim Reaction to Cartoons in Nigeria

Nigerian Muslims had a unique way to protest the publishing of cartoons depicting Mohammed. Burn some churches and kill a few Christians.

Deadly protests over cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad spread in Africa, killing 16 people in Nigeria on Saturday a day after claiming 11 lives in Libya.

Many of those who died in northern Nigeria were Christians, killed after a Muslim protest over the cartoons turned violent and rioters torched churches, shops and vehicles, police and local officials said.

It was the bloodiest protest so far over satirical cartoons of the Prophet, first published in a Danish newspaper, that Muslims regard as blasphemous.

"They went on the rampage, burning shops and churches of the Christians. The protesters killed the others. Some were even killed in the churches," said Joseph Hayab, north-west secretary of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN).
When Muslims kill each other in these moronic protests I have little complaint. Vermin that die as the result of the violence they create, are only victims of themselves. But, when these evil people in the midst of a temper tantrum begin killing innocents, it is time to pull out the machine guns.

Hat tip to Drudge.
