As you see, every day, news about moslem violence againist non moslem popualtions and America and the West.
The islamic mob has the same mentality of the moslem army in the seventh century.
When they entered any country, they started burning and killing for no reason except spreading fear among the populations.
Despite the cartoons began in Denmark, killing and burning started already every where.
The Danish cartoons, including one showing Muhammad wearing a bomb-shaped turban with an ignited fuse.
Here the news today bring more killing and burning by the mob of Islam.

Nigeria - Nigerian Muslims protesting caricatures of the Muhammad attacked Christians and burned churches on Saturday, killing at least 15 people in the deadliest confrontation yet in the whirlwind of Muslim anger over the drawings.

An Associated Press reporter saw mobs of Muslim protesters swarm through the city center with machetes, sticks and iron rods. One group threw a tire around a man, poured gas on him and set him ablaze.

But it was in Nigeria, where mutual suspicions between Christians and Muslims have led to thousands of deaths in recent years, that tensions boiled over into sectarian violence.

Thousands of rioters burned 15 churches in Maiduguri in a three-hour rampage.

Protesters attacked and looted shops owned by minority Christians, most of them with origins in the country's south.
"Most of the dead were Christians beaten to death on the streets by the rioters, Witnesses said three children and a priest were among those killed.

Thousands of people have died in this West African country since 2000 in religious violence fueled by the adoption of the strict Islamic legal code by a dozen states in the north, seen by most Christians as a move to impose religious hegemony on non-Muslims.

In the violence in Libya, four of the 11 dead were believed to have been Egyptians or Palestinians.
