U.S. Envoy On Africa: "In The World Today, We’re Seeing Far Too Many Victims Of Ethnic And Religiously Motivated Violence And Hate"

We all know that. But wait, she isn't referring to jihad against Christians. She is referring to violence against Muslims:

"In the world today, we're seeing far too many victims of ethnic and religiously motivated violence and hate," Power said. [...]

The country has been in chaos since a March 2013 coup, and the violence has been splitting the country into Muslim and Christian areas.

Power said the situation "is extremely alarming" with most Muslims in the capital, Bangui, forced to flee their homes and many killed by armed Christian militants.

The United Nations will be taking over peacekeeping duties in the Central African Republic from the African Union but not until Sept. 15, she said.

Until then, Power said, there's a huge amount to be done to protect the Muslims still in Bangui who feel very vulnerable, to mobilize funding for desperately needed humanitarian aid, and to support transitional President Catherine Samba-Panza's efforts to get the police and civil service back to work.

Powers does not mention Muslim aggression in Nigeria or the persecution of Christian Copts in Egypt.

Jihad Watch has more.
