US envoy: Almost every CAR mosque destroyed in war

Almost all of the 436 mosques in the Central African Republic have been destroyed by months of vicious fighting between Christians and Muslims, the US ambassador to the United Nations said.

Samantha Power spoke to reporters on Tuesday after a Security Council visit last week to the country, calling the devastation “kind of crazy, chilling”.

She expressed concern about an upcoming possible security vacuum as European Union and French forces pull out and a UN peacekeeping force is still not at full strength…

  • I wish I could care.

    Normally, I would find the destruction of ANY house of worship to be beneath sane, civilised people. But seeing as no one cares about churches and their adherents being destroyed and killed, I, too, have embraced apathy.

    Turnabout is fair play

    Making sure Muslims don’t invade or set up beachheads is good self-preservation

  • Some good news for a change.

    In CAR the muslims tried to make it a sharia state and kill off the non-muslims and no one cared until the Christians started to fight back. Now it’s an international crisis. The fact that the Christians understood that mosques are legitimate military targets since muslims use them for training and weapons storage.

    • Yes.

      It’s always the victims’ fault. If only they could just shut up and die.

    All of the Christian persecution going on in the world, hundreds upon hundreds of Christian churches destroyed, Tens or even hundreds of thousands of Christians killed or forced into conversion or slavery in the last couple of years, ancient temples and historical buildings of irreplaceable historical value destroyed, and this one place in the world where Christians are defending themselves against barbarians is what Samantha Power cares about?

    She is clearly a racist, anti-Chrisitan bigot who loves America even less than Putin.

      “She is clearly a racist, anti-Chrisitan bigot who loves America even less than Putin.”
      Correct on all points, I would only add leftist to that list, of course that could be considered redundant then.

    Samantha Power, the US ambassador to the UN is apparently VERY concerned about these mosques. Perhaps more concerned about the destruction of mosques then all the people and world heritage destroyed by mosque dwellers.

    All the mosquiterias are busted and the U.N. is pulling out? Sounds like law and order has been re-established.

    WOOHOO, Finally some good news, congrats to the christians of CAR.

    436 mosques destroyed? It’s a good start. How many can be destroyed in Canada and the US in just a month if we start now? Maybe we can do better.
