Ramadan Death Count: Central African Republic 25/05/19

(Ouham-Pendé) The Central African Republic a Christianmajority country (80% ) in the Northern part of central Africa  is faced on 3 sides by Muslim majority countries the other countries (Congo/South Sudan and Uganda) have sizable Islamic populations. 

It appears that the faithful weren’t happy having a sizable chunk of Christian land in their midst and so in 2004 they started a bush war in the north of the country in which to enforce their will and their faith onto the kuffer. In 2012 the rebels joined forces to form Séléka . A deal was made by the president for the Islamic rebels to power share, but that deal fell by the wayside and the rebels went on the rampage installing their own as president . Once in overall power the rebels did what Islamic rebels do to Christians and started killing them. Problem was and still is only 10 % of the country is Islamic and the Christians said enough is enough and fought back  The media painted this as poor Muslims at the hands of Christians , leaving out the salient fact that everybody was happy until the Islamic rebels decided to cross in the country and start their kill fest. The UN was called in and 4 years down the line 13000 UN troops and 2000 French troops separate 2000 Muslim rebels from 72000 Christian fighters.

Problem is the Islamic rebels aren’t happy and from time to time decide to murder death kill simply because they can and on Wednesday they decided to run riot over the province of Ouham Pende (situated next to Islamic Cameroon) killing 50 people.

Germany: Police raid Iraqi "Al-Salam-313 Bike gang

(Berlin) German police carried out early-morning raids at apartments in 11 cities on Wednesday as part of an operation targeting organized crime. Hundreds of officers were involved in the raids, focusing on the Cologne area and the Ruhr Valley. A spokeswoman for police in the city of Essen, Sylvia Czapiewski, said authorities targeted the homes of 34 suspects who are mainly of Iraqi and Syrian descent
"We have been carrying out an investigation into a large group of people for some considerable time," she said.
Those targeted are suspected of involvement in people smuggling, trading in weapons, narcotics and false IDs. One person was arrested.
The Al-Salam 313 gang openly promotes itself as a peace-loving bunch of guys who have nothing to do with religion. yet in their "Who we are video" they threaten people with an arab style beating if you cross them, they state if you have a problem with them pay them a visit as they are willing to listen. and if you have any issues with somebody you can call them -A-team- style but in this case, you know where to find them:

German news org Deutsche Welle has done a little investigative work on the above so called group of peaceful thugs and found that:
  1. The group is rumoured to have very close ties to so-called Mahdi Army aligned with Iraqi Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr. That militia sports a white dove as its insignia — as does the Al-Salam-313 group.
  2. The leader of the group calls himself Abu Mehdi  which incidentally, has a specific meaning: In Shia Islam, "Mehdi" or "Mahdi" refers to the descendant of Prophet Mohammed, who rules before Judgment Day to rid the world of evil.
  3. The number "313," as referenced in the group's name, also has particular meaning in this context. Shiites believe that the redeemer will return to earth with 313 companions.
  4. In addition to dealing in narcotics and weapons, the gang members are suspected of having supported militias back in Iraq with the profits from their various activities.
Make you wonder exactly who controls them doesn't it.
