Nigeria: May 12, 2004



Additional police arrived in the northern city of Kano and restored peace after two days of attacks by Moslem mobs against any Christians they could find. The attacks, which left at least ten dead, were in retaliation for the hundreds of Moslem dead in religious strife in central Nigeria. While there is some fear that Christian mobs, in the largely Christian south, will retaliate against their Moslem majority, most of the violence has been coming from the Moslems. Islamic clerics have been preaching against infidels (non-Moslems) and the need to adopt Sharia (Moslem religious law) for all Nigerians. Some states in northern Nigeria are trying to do that, but are meeting resistance from Christians who still want to enjoy their pork and beer.

Thanksgiving is quickly approaching. Because of falling ad revenues and the owners of the site wanting you to have a good experience, this poor pet bird (Drake) may end up as the turkey for the publisher’s Thanksgiving meal.

What can you do to help save the bird? There are three possibilities:

  1. Make sure you spread the word about us. Two ways to do that are to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
  2. Subscribe to our daily newsletter. We’ll send the news to your email box, and you don’t have to come to the site unless you want to read columns or see photos.
  3. You can contribute to the health of StrategyPage. A contribution is not a donation that you can deduct at tax time, but a form of crowdfunding. We store none of your information when you contribute..

Drake appreciates any help you can give him.
