Here is what we reported in January of this year:
The Seleka have been compared to the ‘Janjaweed’ a ruthless, souless group of rebel murderers. The Lord’s Resistance Army who also claims Christian roots, and is hunted internationally for horrendous crimes rivaling none. Rape, murder, among countless other atrocities, this terror group is guilty on all counts. They even kidnap and force children to participate as soliders in their wars. So why isn’t the media reporting on this? Why are they not telling us of the true evil established in the CAR?
Lots of unanswered questions, no one seems to be asking. Mainly, they are only reporting on the violence between Christians and Muslims, a religious conflict. These type of headlines seem to draw the most readers. In the meantime, innocent people are being tortured, burned, raped, hacked to death, and beheaded. But the world has no solutions, only sanctions or sanctions that stay on the debate table.
As we have prayed for answers and asked not only questions from the world, but from God. Early on, we were shown the wickedness that lies behind these attacks.
This blackness spreads as death and destruction in Africa grows to genocidal proportions. More and more we see the media starting to take notice, something is not right. Because their readers are demanding to know the truth and calling them out, for further investigation. They are now beginning to scratch the surface to uncover facts.
A few of media outlets are reporting on recent clashes between rebels and the Ugandan Army. The Wall Street Journal reported that the Seleka rebels have been supplying the Lord’s Resistance Army in exchange for precious metals and ivory. This is no secret, we have reported on the vast superhighway of terror in this region before.
We have inquired as to why media outlets continually report about conflicts and slaughter in the CAR as Christian verses Muslim, when the Lord’s Resistance Army has been very active in the region. Their reign of terror has never ended, it simply puts on a new face and goes underground. In fact the US continues to search for the leader Joseph Kony. Seleka and even Anti-Balaka, the latter being touted as Christian militia are now surfacing as supporters of the LRA.
We have asked why the media reports that the Anti-Balaka are Christian without even so much as a question. The gallery below will show the pagan rituals applied by this group. It’s easy to see this is not Christianity. They use it as a cover—drawing in youth and weak Christians who have witnessed great persecution and the losses of property or family members in the conflicts. Revenge encouraged by these militants…in the end a bitter pill to shallow. And the world blames religion for the conflict. Satan working overtime on a blinded world to get the results he wants.
The Anti-Balaka are far from Christian, when in fact they have many of the same rituals and beliefs as the LRA. Since these stories have surfaced, many are speaking out and wanting answers and the real truth.
Remember how the media portrayed the clashes as over and the rebel groups were disbanded. Why does the terror continue against citizens of the CAR? Why is this still happening?
The UN and France seem powerless to control the situation. Blame has been laid on sectarian violence between Muslim and Christian populations/tribes, but this is not the case. It goes far deeper than that. Africa is the richest country in the world as far as minerals and oil go, and this super highway of terror flourishes there.
Pray for the nation of CAR, pray for strength of faith and protection for our brothers and sisters as they face cold-hearted killers, horrific violence and an expanding evil.
