Witch Doctors In Africa-Send Them To Wall Street!

It is witchcraft time in Africa as mobs roam the villages of east Africa in search of albinos or people whose body parts can be used in ceremonies to obtain power and wealth. Of course, in America, our witch doctors roam the corridors of banks and financial institutions seeking money rather than body parts, but, in the end, the result is still the same– people are left empty inside. But, when it comes to witching, Gambia president Yahya Jammeh is in a class of his own. A new report by Amnesty International says his goons have kidnapped at least a thousand people who are taken to detention centers where his own witch doctors can operate to their heart’s desire.

Jammeh reportedly imported witch doctors from Guinea to help him ferret out enemies who he believes killed his aunt and cause problems in his country. Of course, a few years ago, the president claimed to have whipped up a formula in his kitchen that cured AIDS. Perhaps, President Obama might latch onto this African wizard and have him concoct a formula to solve our economic crisis. After all, it should be a lot simpler than AIDS.

As for body parts, I hear there is a guy in Texas who might qualify for that assignment.

British Missionaries Sentenced For Criticizing Muslims

Two British missionaries pleaded guilty to the charge of sedition in hope the court would be lenient since their “crime”consisted of sending emails describing the horrific conditions in the nation of Gamia. However, the judge sentenced them to a year of hard labor in an atrocious jail which fails to provide necessary food or medical assistance to inmates. David and Fiona Fulton, who have three children committed a terrible crime by sending an email which contained the comment the nation was fast sinking “into a morass of Islam.” The judge was furious and said, “I found the offenses of the accused party to be very shocking. They have shown no respect for the country, the government and the president of the republic. I will send a clear message to the offenders.”

In the beautiful Muslim nation of Gambia to make comments about the government suggests one is prepared to actually do something violent. The only violence these two humans did was to express a view that, most probably, is accurate concerning a backward government run by individuals for whom human rights is a stranger who has never knocked on their doors.

Why is it that those concerned about human rights tend to ignore human right violations in many African nations?
