“The silence of the international community is like they are accomplices allowing this to happen…” – Father Frédéric Tonfio, Catholic priest
From sources as diverse as the BBC, The Guardian, Walid Shoebat and Human Rights Watch, Christians in the Central African Republic (CAR) are facing a near genocide at the hands of Islamic terrorists, many of them from neighboring Jihadi strongholds of Chad and The Sudan.
Yet reports are leaking out of the landlocked nation that ragtag groups of Christian men and boys are forming self-defense militias against the Jihadists.
Officially known as Seleka, meaning “Alliance” in the local tongue, the terrorists have been incorporated into the Muslim controlled national army.
Muslims constitute only 15 % of the population in this majority Catholic country, but control the masses through sheer terror due in large part to they being the only ones with access to the nation’s armories.
