LAGOS, Nigeria â More than 50 people were reported dead and 200 wounded Thursday as protesters rioted over a newspaper article that suggested Islam's founding prophet might have chosen a wife from among contestants in the Miss World beauty pageant in Nigeria.
Rioters were said to be stabbing pedestrians and torching churches during violent demonstrations in the northern city of Kaduna.
More than 50 people were stabbed, bludgeoned or burned to death and 200 were seriously injured in the violence in predominantly Muslim neighborhoods, Nigerian Red Cross President Emmanuel Ijewere told The Associated Press.
At least four churches were destroyed, he said.
Islam is not a religion of peace or reason. They can say that Christ didn't rise from the dead and Christians will pray for their historical education to be corrected with the truth, but when one person says anything about their "prophet", who did not rise from the dead, they believe Allah (the god of the moon) would allow the killing of innocent people and burning of buildings that have said nothing. When will they obey the commands given by God to Moses, who they accept is of God and when will Islamic governments judge them by God's laws and execute these murderers? This will not happen unless Islamic teaching is stopped. It should be classified as a terrorist activity. The mosques are teaching hatred of non-muslims and their books have always taught them to kill any who will not submit to their religion when they have the numbers to rule. Their stratagy is to gain power, bring in Islamic rule and then kill the opposition, so keep an eye on their numbers in your country before it happens to you. The worst threat to a terrorist is to ban the building of mosques, or even demolish them, in your country if they commit terrorist acts. Please read "Allah is he God?" and you will see this is of Satan
