Muslims have killed at least one Christian and wounded several others in anti-Christian violence in western Ethiopia, according to International Christian Concern, an organization that helps persecuted Christians worldwide.
ICC also is reporting that Muslims have burned down 69 church buildings, 30 Christian homes, a Bible school, a Christian orphanage and a church office.
The anti-Christian attacks started March 2 after Muslims allegedly accused Christians of desecrating the Quran, the Islamic holy book. Violence continues to affect residents of the area.

jpw, the number of dead during the Iraqi war(s) are hard to estimate, q.v., Wikipedia article, (Casualties of the Iraq War). Looking at these estimates and only one of them is near the figure you gave.

For the sacrifices American and other allied troops made and the deaths and sufferings that non-Muhammadans in Iraq went through the returns were unsatisfactory.
As I pointed out before I don't see this in either the Iraqi or Afghani constitions, which is in the American one, First Amendment. If it was ignored by them the sin would be on their head, now it is primarily on Bush's
Jim, Saddam didn't kill nearly the number that has been killed in the "Iraq War" (a war begun by a nation that never formally or legally declared war).

jpw, a lot of those dead through the years have been Christians and Jews, Turning a Blind Eye to Murdered Christians. No, Iraq's war on Christians has gone unnoticed by American governments, but one of the few good things that can be said by the Iraq--and very little good can be said of it--is that the biggest killer of Iraqis, at least for the moment, Saddam Hussein has been gotten rid of.
Revelation 9:13-21 and Revelation 16:12-16 This has been considered to be the spread of Islam by the best commentators in chap. 9 that will be used of God in the East to bring down civil spheres against the Lord and His Christ and in chap.16 the opening up of the East to the gospel with the conversion of the Jews.
