White Students Riot After Obama Election Win Ole Miss Campus

Oxford – After long hours of anticipating, cheers and disappointment, students at one southern university began rioting after President Obama was declared the winner of the 2012 election.

Despite calls for unity and cooperation from both Governor Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama, a group of approximately 40 University of Mississippi students, unhappy about Obama winning the election, began shouting racial slurs in front of the student union. Campus police arrived and in less than 20 minutes, the crowd had swelled to an estimated 400 people. As police ordered the students back to their dorm rooms, another crowd of around 100 students began assembling in front of a residence hall.

News of the crowds began appearing on Twitter, prompting more students to gather. Students eventually began spilling into the street, blocking traffic and burning Obama campaign signs. The scene was called a riot by many who observed the crowds.

Twitter user The_MAMster was present at the riots. She tweeted:

#OleMiss students: We are live tweeting the “riots” on campus. Please tweet at me for updates/info. OAN this is a disgrace to our university

@OleMisterRob tweeted:

The President speaks about unity on TV while Ole Miss students riot. This is 1962 all over again. #ashamed

University Chancellor Dan Jones, issued a statement on Wednesday saying:

“While we are grateful that there were no injuries and there was no property damage, we are very disappointed in those students who took a very immature and uncivil approach to expressing their views about the election. The gathering seems to have been fueled by social media, and the conversation should have stayed there.

Unfortunately, early news reports quoted social media comments that were inaccurate. Too, some photographs published in social media portrayed events that police did not observe on campus. Nevertheless, the reports of uncivil language and shouted racial epithets appear to be accurate and are universally condemned by the university, student leaders and the vast majority of students who are more representative of our university creed.”

Two students were arrested. One was charged with public intoxication, while the other student was charged with failure to comply with police orders.

Muslims in Christian-dominated Ethiopia rally on Fridays as tensions rise and arrests increase

Tanzania, Senegal and Now Ethiopia Islam continues to cause problems for Africans

Published November 02, 2012

As midday prayers came to an end at the Grand Anwar mosque in Ethiopia’s capital, worshippers continued on to what has become a regular second act on Fridays — shouting anti-government slogans.

The demonstrations this Friday did not turn violent. But tensions are rising between the government in this mostly Christian country and Muslim worshippers. On Monday, federal prosecutors charged a group of 29 Muslims with terrorism and working to establish an Islamic republic.

Not all encounters between police and the protesters have been peaceful. In July, hundreds were arrested after a scuffle in the mosque that injured many and damaged property, including city buses.

Religious violence outside the capital has killed eight and wounded about a dozen this year in two incidents, including one last month when protesters tried to free jailed Muslim leaders in the Amhara region. Protests first erupted in December after the state, wary of Islamist extremists, wanted to change the leadership of a religious school in the capital.

The government also expelled two Arabs in May after the pair flew in from Middle East and disseminated pamphlets at the Anwar mosque. Two-thirds of Ethiopians are Christians; the rest are Muslims.

Ethiopia’s former leader, Meles Zenawi, before he died in August expressed concern over rising fundamentalism he said was evident by the first discovery of an al-Qaida cell in the country. A federal court is scheduled to rule Monday in the case of 11 people charged with being members of al-Qaida. One Kenyan national has already pleaded guilty.

Protesters also accuse the government of unconstitutionally encouraging a moderate teaching of Islam called Al-Ahbash and dictating the election of community leaders to support it at an Addis Ababa religious school.

Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn, speaking to parliament on Oct. 16, said the government fully respects freedom of religion and “would not interfere in the affairs of religion just as religion would not interfere in matters of politics.” He blamed “extremist elements” for the protests. He said some protesters “tried to activate a hidden political agenda under the pretext of religion.”

On Monday, federal prosecutors charged a group of 29 people, including the jailed activists, with terrorism.

The group, including a wife of a senior Cabinet minister, now faces charges including leading a covert movement to undermine the country’s secular constitution and establish an Islamic republic. Prosecutors say the group incited violence and called for jihad against the federal government.

The minister’s wife, Habiba Mohammed, is charged with coordinating finances for the group. Police say she was caught leaving the Saudi Arabian embassy in Addis Ababa with nearly $3,000. Other suspects are also charged with receiving pay from the embassy “to preach extremism.”

Before the charges were filed, the minister defended his wife, saying he had asked the Saudi ambassador for the money to help construct a mosque their family is building.

Rights groups are concerned about the trial and the use of an anti-terrorism law which they say has been used in past trials to silence dissent, not prosecute terrorists.

“Many of these trials have been politically motivated and marred by serious due process violations. The Ethiopian authorities should allow systematic independent trial monitoring, including by human rights organizations, throughout the trial,” said Laetitia Bader of Human Rights Watch.

One protester on Friday said his group is changing the color used in past protests, yellow, to white to underscore that the jailed leaders are peaceful activists, not terrorists.

German Islamists Target Youth on the Internet

By Christoph Sydow

A growing community of German-speaking Islamists has developed on the Internet. Aiming to find new recruits, they glorify jihad and call for attacks on Germany. A new study warns that such online propaganda might foster a new generation of terrorists.

As a rapper, Denis Cuspert was a bit player, but as a propagandist for jihad he is a star in some circles. He has gained considerable prominence since 2010, when he transformed himself from a Berlin hip-hop artist named Deso Dogg into the Islamist Abu Malik.

Actually, not much has changed since he became a Salafist. He still makes music, and distributes it primarily through the Internet. But instead of performing rap songs like “Gangxta” and “Ich und mein Baby” (“Me and My Baby”), he releases so-called Anasheed, or Islamic vocal music in which he glorifies jihad.Cuspert’s songs have attained cult status among radical Islamists in Germany. At the request of the Office for the Protection of the Constitution in Berlin, three of his jihadist songs were labeled as being harmful to minors in early 2012.

Today, the ex-rapper is one of the most prominent German-speaking propagandists for jihad on the Internet. A new study by the Berlin-based Foundation for Science and Politics (SWP), which advises the German government, addresses the development of the Islamist scene on the Internet in detail for the first time.

Sophisticated Websites

International terrorist groups like al-Qaida recognized the importance of the Internet for recruiting new supporters early on. But it wasn’t until the end of 2005 that the German arm of the “Global Islamic Media Front” (GIMF), which saw itself as the mouthpiece for all jihadists worldwide, emerged.

The German offshoot of GIMF was founded by Mohamed Mahmoud, an Austrian with Egyptian roots. In addition to Cuspert, Mahmoud is still one of the most colorful figures in the German Islamist community. Mahmoud quickly attracted the attention of authorities when he began spreading al-Qaida propaganda on the Internet in 2005.

After GIMF posted a video in March 2007 threatening possible attacks in Germany and Austria, Mahmoud and his wife were arrested. Because he had used his own computer to place the video on the Internet, all Austrian authorities had to do was establish the connection between Mahmoud and the computer’s IP address.

After his release in September of last year, Mahmoud quickly joined his new friend Cuspert in Berlin. Soon thereafter, the two men went to the western German city of Solingen, where Mahmoud transformed the Millatu Ibrahim Mosque into a nationally known meeting place for Salafists.

But the Internet remained far more important than the mosque. Mahmoud, Cuspert and their supporters have set up sophisticated websites. “Especially noteworthy are the high degree of technical professionalism and the targeted use of elements of current youth culture,” the SWP study, published on Wednesday, concludes.

According to the study, shutting down the websites and arresting the people behind them will hardly curb the growing number of Salafists in Germany. On the contrary, Mahmoud only developed into “a star in the scene” as a result of having spent time in prison. After the federal government banned Mahmoud’s Millatu Ibrahim group in June, its website was shut down, but new blogs and sites soon popped up to spread the same messages.

Mahmoud, Cuspert and their cohorts depend on these sites to stay in touch with their supporters in Germany. In the wake of the Millatu Ibrahim ban and growing police pressure on the Salafists following bloody clashes at a rally in Cologne, Mahmoud and Cuspert, together with many other key figures in the German Islamist community, have disappeared and have presumably fled to Egypt.

Cuspert made another Internet appearance in September, with threats of attacks in Germany. “You spend millions and billions for the war against Islam,” he said in a video. “And that’s why this country, the Federal Republic of Germany, is a war zone.”

Taking Inspiration from Others

German authorities are taking the dangers posed by jihadist propaganda on the Internet very seriously, especially after the case of Arid U. The young man from Frankfurt had never had any physical contact with known jihadists, and became radicalized exclusively through the Internet. In March 2011, he killed two US soldiers at Frankfurt Airport. In addition to YouTube videos of alleged and actual crimes committed by the US military in Iraq and Afghanistan, Anasheed supposedly played an important role in his actions.

U. is the perfect example of a phenomenon called “leaderless jihad.” These militants do not travel to terrorist training camps in Pakistan or Afghanistan, nor do they receive direct instructions from al-Qaida leaders. Instead, they act on their own, inspired by jihadist websites.

For the authorities, this web-based propaganda offers both opportunities and risks. On the one hand, according to the SWP study, “they can trace the networks of sympathizers and even pinpoint some of their physical locations.”

Intelligence services can also take advantage of the anonymity of Internet forums to deliberately plant false information or obtain insider information. But all of this requires a lot of personnel, and for each website that is shut down, a similar one appears before long.

Until now, attacks by “leaderless jihadists” have been relatively minor in comparison to others, because the attackers had not been trained in camps run by militant Islamist movements.

But Guido Steinberg, editor of the SWP study, warns: “We can assume that the jihadists will also draw lessons from attacks like those committed by Anders Breivik in Norway, or by the National Socialist Underground (NSU), and will become more effective in the future.”

Violence Erupts In Senegal Over Detention Of Religious Chief

another day another Muslim riot

Scores of devout Muslim youths sowed panic in Dakar on Monday as they smashed up dozens of cars in protest against the detention of a powerful religious leader or marabout.

Police fired teargas to break up the protesters who moved through the capital smashing the windows of parked cars as well as those driving past using rocks, sticks and other objects found on the road.

The protesters shouted “Free Bethio” in reference to Cheikh Bethio Thioune, a senior leader of the Mourides, Senegal’s richest and most powerful Muslim brotherhood.

Street traders hastily swept up their wares and ran off as the angry protesters swarmed Independence Square in the heart of the capital, causing chaos as cars reversed and swerved to avoid projectiles.

“We have counted more than 123 ransacked vehicles, here in central Dakar,” Interior Minister Mbaye Ndiaye told the RTS1 television network.

Protesters also gathered in front of the Rebeuss prison where the marabout was recently transferred after initially being held in Thies, 70 kilometres (40 miles) from the capital.

In Paris some 40 people gathered in front of the Senegalese embassy to protest their spiritual leader’s detention, attempting to force entry to the building and break windows, according to an embassy source.

The tyres of diplomatic vehicles parked in front of the building were punctured by the protesters.

The government warned later Monday that measures had been adopted to ensure no such violence could be repeated and accused “dark forces” of seeking to destabilise the country.

“Faced with such serious acts of violence and vandalism, the government is determined to carry out its mission to protect the people,” government spokesman Serigne Mbaye Thiam said in a statement.

“Measures have been taken and firm instructions given to the police forces to stop any disruption of public order,” he added.

Thioune was arrested on April 23 after the death of two of his disciples during a brawl at his house the previous evening. Their bodies were found buried in the nearby bush.

He was charged with complicity to murder along with several of his followers.

Thioune’s followers, who have protested in recent days in the capital, were also implicated in violent protests during the country’s electoral campaign, when they supported former president Abdoulaye Wade.

Senegal is a 95 percent Muslim nation whose citizens follow one of four Sufi brotherhoods. The west African nation has a reputation for religious tolerance.

Muslim protesters fight police in Tanzania, popular cleric freed

second muslim riots in Tanzania in a week.

STONE TOWN/DAR ES SALAAM (Reuters) – Muslim protesters clashed with police in Tanzania’s commercial capital and on the semi-autonomous island of Zanzibar on Friday, raising religious tensions in the east African country.

In Dar es Salaam, protests against the arrest of a hardline Muslim cleric turned violent, while in Zanzibar, supporters of an Islamist separatist group have repeatedly fought police over the disappearance of their spiritual leader, who was then released after nearly four days in captivity.

The violence has raised concerns of an escalation in religious tensions in relatively stable and secular Tanzania, east Africa’s second-largest economy.

In Zanzibar, a predominantly Muslim island, supporters of the Islamic Uamsho (Awakening) movement protested for the third day.

Uamsho followers, mostly youths and urban poor, clashed with police after Friday prayers, hurling rocks at police who retaliated with tear gas in sporadic exchanges around the main historic area of Stone Town.

Roads were temporarily closed, with rocks and coconuts strewn across the asphalt, and most businesses shut for the day. Riot police were stationed around mosques around Stone Town.

Fighting erupted on Wednesday, a day after the group’s leader Sheikh Farid Hadi disappeared in unknown circumstances.

But late on Friday evening, the popular cleric was released, with shouts of “Allah Akbar” heard rising above Stone Town’s maze of narrow alleys which separate Arab-style white coral stone houses.

“He is free. I had my picture taken with him,” Thabit Juma, an eyewitness, told Reuters.

One Uamsho member who did not wish to be named confirmed Hadi has been freed, though he would not comment on who was responsible for his disappearance.

Earlier in the day another influential Uamsho cleric Sheikh Azzan Hamdan said the police were not doing enough to search for Hadi and set a deadline, 4 p.m. (1300GMT) on Saturday, for Hadi’s safe return.

Violence between Uamsho and police broke out earlier this year on the archipelago, a tourist hotspot.

Analysts say the Uamsho group has been gaining popularity because of disenchantment with Zanzibar’s main opposition Civic United Front party after its decision to form a government with the ruling Chama Cha Mapinduzi party.

POLICE ON ALERT

In Dar es Salaam, protesters left the Mtambani mosque after Friday prayers and marched towards the town center chanting demands for the release of Muslim cleric Sheikh Issa Ponda.

“Police came in and started firing tear gas, while Muslim protesters responded by throwing stones,” witness Salum Haji told Reuters. In the city center streets were deserted in anticipation of further violence.

“All shops are closed in the city center and there are heavily armed policemen patrolling the streets. We are all locked inside (a shop). I don’t know how I’m going to get home,” resident Neema Swai told Reuters.

Dar es Salaam’s regional police commander, Suleiman Kova, said Ponda had been arrested on Tuesday for criminal trespass on private property and inciting followers to commit violence.

Ponda is the secretary general of the Council of Islamic Organisation, a group that vies for influence against the government-backed National Muslims Council of Tanzania.

Though Ponda is not known to have any links to Uamsho, the protesters also demonstrated against Hadi’s disappearance.

Mainland Tanzania, ruled by the secular government of President Jakaya Kikwete, has been rocked by religious tension for the past week.

Muslim protesters burnt five churches on the outskirts of Dar es Salaam on Friday after reports emerged a young Christian boy had urinated on a Koran, Islam’s holy book. Local media said the boy had been dared by friends to urinate on the book.

Kikwete visited the torched churches and called for calm.

Tanzania arrests after Dar es Salaam churches attacks

link

Police in Tanzania have arrested 126 people after last week’s attacks on churches in the main city, Dar es Salaam, a police commander has said.

Angry Muslims vandalised and torched five churches after a Christian boy reportedly urinated on a Koran.

President Jakaya Kikwete said the violence was unacceptable, even if the incident angered Muslims.

Tanzania’s long history of religious tolerance should not be threatened, he said.

The BBC’s Aboubakar Famau in Dar es Salaam says a discussion between the 14-year-old Christian boy and his Muslim friend apparently got out of hand, leading to the attacks on Friday.

‘Justice will prevail’

The Christian boy was reportedly told by his Muslim friend that he would turn into a snake if he urinated on a Koran, our correspondent says.

The Christian boy then asked for a Koran and, according to reports, urinated on it to test his friend’s claim, our correspondent adds.

A Dar es Salaam police commander, Suleiman Kova, told the BBC that 126 people had been arrested over the subsequent attacks.

“We are making every effort to arrest everyone responsible… We want justice to prevail,” he said.

Muslim cleric Sheikh Alhadi Musa, who is the chairman of the local Interfaith Committee, condemned the attack on the churches.

He said the Koran had been defiled by one person and it was wrong to assume that it was the stand of all Christians.

Plans were under way to promote dialogue between followers of the two faiths, he said.

“Youth are said to have been largely involved in the violence, so I have sent some youth to talk to their colleagues,” Sheikh Musa added.

Mr Kikwete, who visited the churches on Saturday, appealed for calm, Tanzania’s Guardian newspaper reports.

He said Christians should not launch retaliatory attacks as this would lead to more conflict.

Chaos hits Dar as boy defiles Quran

this over an argument between 2 boys,  rioting over a book! recently a Tanzanian bishop  said muslims in the country are crying for sharia law

Dar es Salaam. Violent clashes erupted in Dar es Salaam’s Mbagala suburb yesterday when scores of Muslim youth stormed a police station and demanded that a 14-year-old boy accused of urinating on the Quran be handed over to them.

In the aftermath of the confrontation, at least five churches were attacked, several car windows smashed and passersby injured as the angry mob moved from street to street at Mbagala Kizuiani protesting the desecration of the holy book.

Dar es Salaam Chief Sheikh Alhad Mussa Salum urged Muslims not to pursue the issue out of proportion, adding that there wasn’t ample grounds to mess up national security.

“The incident doesn’t need emotions in dealing with. Islam means peace; we can deal with such issues peacefully. This matter involved children. Islam considers age; it shouldn’t lead to a breach of peace in our country,” said Sheikh Salum.

He added that attacking churches would mean the boy was sent by Christians to desecrate the Quran, which he said he believed wasn’t the case.Police used teargas canisters and water cannons to quell the unrest and open up Kilwa road as the protesters hurled stones and burned tyres to block the road. Police were still engaging the demonstrators at Mbagala Zakhem late in the evening as the attacks on churches continued to rage.

A source told The Citizen on Saturday that the origins of the clashes could be traced back five days to an incident in which a Christian and Muslim boy got into an argument over the power of the Quran to turn anyone who defiled it into a snake.

According to those reports, the Christian boy swore he would not be harmed if he played with the Quran while his Muslim friend maintained that he would turn into a snake or run mad if did so.

The Christian boy then urinated on the book—and set off a chain of events that would turn the area into a battleground for what the Muslims described as a defence of their faith.

The protesting group initially arrested the boy at around 9am on Monday and took him to a police station. The incident turned deadly after the angry Muslims mobilised more support during Friday prayers, reportedly in an attempt to grab the boy from the police station and behead him.

Temeke Regional Police Commander David Misime described the situation on the ground as “not well” as the police were still engaging with protestors as at 7pm. “There was relative calm in the evening,” our reporter on the scene said late yesterday. “But I have just started hearing explosions on the Zakhem side now.”

Protesters attacked the Catholic Church at Mbagala Zakhem and broke down the door and an Evangelical Lutheran Church of Tanzania was torched in the same area.

At Mbagala Kizuiani, reports which were later confirmed by ACP Misime further say, the Seventh Day Adventist, Tanzania Assemblies of God (TAG), Moravian and Anglican Church and two other catholic churches were attacked and properties destroyed. During the fracas, which was made worse by vandalism, the windows of a vehicle belonging to Clouds Media Group were smashed.

Commuters had problems making their way into and out of Mbagala after the road was closed for several hours.
Mr Misime told The Citizen on Saturday that more churches would have been attacked had the police not taken action. He said 11 cars, including two belonging to police, were destroyed by the protesters.

According to some reports, the 14-year-old boy got into an argument with his Muslim friend when he told him that he would turn into a snake if he urinated on the holy book. The Christian boy apparently asked his friend to give him a Quran so he could test the claim.

As he started urinating on the holy book, a Muslim man arrived and asked the boys why they were doing so. The old man and other people took the Christian boy to his home, handed him to his mother and told her what he had done. “The mother responded that if that was the case, she would give them money to buy another Quran,” said our source. “That statement angered the group, which vowed to deal with the child.”

The group then took the boy to the chairman of Chamazi local government, where they secured a letter to take the boy to the police post for further questioning.

On Wednesday, the group arrived at the police station demanding that the boy be handed over to them but they were told he had been sent to another police station. “They continued to mobilise and agreed to storm the police station after Friday prayers, with the intention of finding the boy and beheading him.

London, Ont. rocked by St. Patrick’s Day riot near Fanshawe College

link to article

mostly privileged drunk whites rioting for fun!

Beer bottles, bricks and other debris rained down on police and firefighters in London, Ont., Saturday when St. Patrick’s Day celebrations turned ugly.

London police Chief Bradley Duncan, speaking to reporters Sunday, said he had never seen the level of violence and vandalism that he did Saturday night in his more than three decades on the police force.

“Last night, London experienced the worst case of civil disobedience our community has ever been subjected to,” Duncan said.

He said there was a very real risk that people could have been seriously injured, and even killed, after partygoers turned to setting fires and throwing bottles, stones and two-by-fours at police and firefighters.

Burns and other “soft tissue” injuries were instead reported, according to the chief.

Seven people were arrested Saturday in connection with the rioting, which caused an estimated $100,000 in damage to the street and vehicles.

Duncan urged anyone else involved in the drunken mob should “do the right thing” and turn themselves into police.

The area where the rioting took place is teeming with students who attend nearby Fanshawe College.

Duncan said the street parties were expected, but spiralled out of control after police and the fire department were called about a brush fire around 10 p.m.

“London Fire Department (arrived) and were almost immediately confronted with numerous persons throwing bottles and bricks at the firefighters and fire vehicles,” Duncan said.

Police then had be brought in, with reinforcements, to escort the firefighters out of the area and they too were met with violence from the mob, the chief said.

Police then had to don their helmets to prevent injury from the flying bottles and other debris.

According to Duncan, about 1,000 people were in the crowd Sunday and police had to attend to the scene until the wee hours of the morning.

“Police vehicles were pounded with two-by-fours, bricks, tire rims and other various items,” Duncan told reporters, resulting in 17 police vehicles being damaged.

“Smoke canisters” were needed to clear out part of the crowd, just so police vehicles could retreat from the area, he added.

By 11 p.m., police declared the gathering an “unlawful assembly” and told the now-rioters to disperse — orders that had little effect, despite repeated warnings.

All of the police cars and other vehicles were removed from the area, but rioters were able to flip a CTV News van and set it on fire. A video posted to YouTube shows the truck ablaze and later exploding.

Rather than send more firefighters into the raging mob, officials determined there was no imminent danger to properties in the area and held back crews from entering.

London mayor Joe Fontana said the city didn’t deserve the rampant disregard for the city and the public.

“To say I am disappointed and disgusted would be an understatement,” Fontana said.

The mayor called the police and firefighters’ efforts “valiant” in the face of the violence.

“There’s no doubt that when you hear that 800, 900, 1,000 people weren’t fighting among each other,” Fontana said. “(They) essentially directed their attack on the very people who serve our community to protect property and to protect lives.

“We are really, really lucky — we can thank our lucky stars — that nobody was killed.”

related news and events where whites start riots for fun and alcohol

“This kind of thing happens all the time, with little comment from the larger society. Since 1995 alone, there have been riots involving white college students at Colorado University in Boulder, Iowa State, Penn State, the Universities of Wisconsin at Whitewater and Oshkosh, Southern Illinois University, the University of Delaware, Michigan State, Washington State, the University of Akron and the University of New Hampshire. And for what reason did these students decide to burn, loot and destroy? Either because of the results of a football game, or because of a crackdown on underage drinking. So here I sit, patiently waiting for Charles Murray to explain to me with scientific precision what it is about white folks’ DNA that makes them riot for the sake of $1 tequila shots.”

from The Kids are All White: Riots, Pathology and the Real Meaning of Color-Blindness by Tim Wise

Young, white males

Jerry M. Lewis, professor emeritus at Kent State University and a sociologist specializing in fan violence, said the recent riot in Boston bore most of the hallmarks of the newest college fad. Lewis has found that generally today’s rioters are usually young, white males — and that they are more likely to riot when their team wins, not when it loses.

“A small portion of young, white males is choosing to express their fandom in violent ways,” he said, noting that the violence usually lasts a matter of hours.

That stands in stark contrast to American riots of years past that usually lasted several days and typically concerned politics or social justice.

These days, college student-rioters usually have enough alcohol in their systems to overcome their inhibitions, but not so much that they are falling-down drunk, Lewis said.
