FOX news: poor christians, nasty muslims

this just in from the cranks at FOX news:
"Thousands of Christians have been forced to flee their homes in Western Ethiopia after Muslim extremists set fire to roughly 50 churches and dozens of Christian homes.
At least one Christian has been killed, many more have been injured and anywhere from 3,000 to 10,000 have been displaced in the attacks that began March 2 after a Christian in the community of Asendabo was accused of desecrating the Koran."
as the mouthpiece for the right-wing, fundamentalist movement in the US, it's par for the course to focus attention not on the million or more muslims that were either killed or became refugees in iraq after the US invasion and occupation went terribly awry.

instead, the fires of sectarian hatred have to be sparked up here in the US in response to the sufferings of africans -- who on any other occasion would be totally neglected by the national white peoples' party that is today's GOP.

on a scale of 10, this rates less than zero except in the very pinched reality that exists in the minds of FOX viewers -- mosques at "ground zero" are more newsworthy than the routinely barbaric, reactionary policies of the US imperial regime.
