The Sleeping Giant Stirs

Nigerian Christians "protest" Muslim anti-cartoon riots.

With a crowd gathered, Ese angrily scrawled "Mohammed is a man, but Jesus is from above" on a shattered mosque wall with a burned stick. [...]

One entire Muslim district — an area of about 100 homes — was burned to the ground. Crumpled corrugated tin roofs lay on top of the remains of smoldering houses.

Interesting information. Thank you. Americans are already upset about the port deal going to the Arab Imarates. They are trying to stop the transfer.
