Meanwhile in Nigeria, Islamists Bomb Muslims for Not Being the Right Kind of Muslims -- No Riots, Protests, Calls for Boycotts Ensue

One day, 2 bombs, 75 dead:

The first bomb detonated around noon, from a car parked in the city of Kaduna, two kilometers outside a gathering of Muslims celebrating Ramadan, said Mike Omeri, the coordinator of Nigeria's National Information Center. Twenty-five died, he said.

State authorities were considering the possibility the explosion—triggered remotely—targeted a Muslim cleric, Sheikh Dahiru Bauchi, who has repeatedly condemned terrorism as un-Islamic.

"His convoy escaped the bomb blast by whiskers," said Marilyn Ogar, spokeswoman of Nigeria's Department of State Security.

Hours later, a second blast hit a teeming bus station in the nearby town of Kawu. Shopkeeper Mustafa Kaka estimated there were about 50 bodies.

The second bomb was apparently targeting a guy by the name of Mohammadu Buhari. So, even in Nigeria where the fighting is often described as "sectarian" between the Christian South and Muslim North, a lot of those being killed are Muslims by other Muslims.

When will the streets of Paris fill up with protesters condemning Boko Haram or demanding an immediate cease fire? Hell, even if they condemned Nigeria for responding to Boko Haram there would at least be some sort of logical parity for the Left. They could burn down Nigerian businesses.

As it is, riots only occur when one side is Jewish. And you don't see John Kerry hopping on an airplane trying to convince Nigeria to stop fighting the terrorist organization.
