Central African Republic: Islamic jihadists murder Catholic priest, mutilate corpse

The Seleka rebels are Muslims who ousted the country’s Christian president and replaced him with a Muslim, and terrorized the CAR’s Christian population until they formed “anti-balaka” militias — the balaka was a kind of machete that the Muslims had used to kill Christians — and began to fight back. The international media has focused entirely on Muslims as victims of Christian atrocities. No atrocities by anyone are ever justified; the coverage has been astonishingly one-sided. Here, as in so many places, Islamic jihadists began the conflict, and there would be no conflict without them.
“Catholic priest is killed in Central African Republic,” AGI, April 19 (thanks to C. Cantoni):
(AGI) Vatican City, April 19 – A Catholic priest, Father Labbe Christ Formane Willbona, was murdered in the north of the Central African Republic, allegedly by a group of armed shepherds of the Fulani ethnic group, considered to be close to the former rebel group of the Seleka. The news was released by Vatican Radio. Father Willbona was returning to the hamlet of Paoua, where he was the parish priest of St. Kisito church, when armed men opened fire. Local security sources reported that the corpse was mutilated before being buried. . .

Tony Blair says Islam a growing threat

The West should set aside its differences with Russia and China to focus on the growing threat from radical Islam, Tony Blair said Wednesday, in a speech that included a call to support Egypt's military government against its Muslim Brotherhood opponents.
The former British prime minister said that tackling "a radicalized and politicized view of Islam" should be at the top of the global political agenda.
He said many in the West seemed "curiously resistant" to face up to a force that "is undermining the possibility of peaceful co-existence in an era of globalization."
Blair, Britain's prime minister between 1997 and 2007, is now Middle East envoy for the Quartet of the United Nations, the European Union, the U.S. and Russia.
In a speech in London, he said that "whatever our other differences, we should be prepared to reach out and co-operate with the East, and in particular Russia and China," to combat Islamic extremism.
Blair's political legacy in Britain is tarnished by his decision to lead the country into the divisive invasion of Iraq in 2003.
Blair acknowledged the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan had undermined Western willingness to intervene in the Middle East. But he called for the West to engage with the region, saying "we have to stop treating each country on the basis of whatever seems to make for the easiest life for us at any one time."
Blair argued that "on the fate of Egypt hangs the future of the region."
He defended the coup that overthrew the elected Muslim Brotherhood government of Mohammed Morsi last year, saying "the Muslim Brotherhood government was not simply a bad government. It was systematically taking over the traditions and institutions of the country."
He said the protest that led to Morsi's ouster "was not an ordinary protest. It was the absolutely necessary rescue of a nation. We should support the new government and help."
