@WobblyJoe,
today there was another report on ‘Domradio’ concerning this subject. They say this month 10 Christians were killed in Burkina Faso. The country currently faces problems like bad harvest due to climate change and financial difficulties due to ‘too many’ refugees to take care of. Islamist propaganda in Burkina Faso says that religious minorities like Christians and Jews somehow caused all this economical and financial trouble…And just like in Germany about 80 years ago there now are more than enough people in Burkina Faso who think this is true.

Why is there resentment over the Catholic minority in Burkina Faso?
Muslims like to call it “Islamophobia” because we don’t like the way they attack and kill us, insult our religion, and demand that we accommodate their faith in ways contrary to our laws. When we object to it they insult our concerns by claiming the concerns are unrelated to the reality of their religion.
Do the Catholics kill the Muslims of Burkina Faso? Are the Catholics just being killed because they are not Muslims?
Adding “ophobia” to a word implies fear, that they are afraid of Catholics, which I do not believe they are. They kill Catholics for being Catholic, not because they fear the Catholics. They would subjugate all of us under their faith if they had the power.
It’s not a phobia if the fear is real.

‘Domradio’ says that this week more than 10 people were murdered and one was gravely injured when some Roman-Catholic communities all over Burkina Faso were attacked by Catholophobic people. They say that generally-speaking resentments against the Roman-Catholic minority seem to slowly increase among Burkina Faso’s people.

This week the German TV-show ‘Gesundheitsblatt’ gave tips how to get rid of even dangerous pests:
>Having some cloves and citrus fruits around keeps flies – even those that cause malaria – away as these animals can’t stand that smell. Note that in Burkina Faso, Angola, Mozambique, Mali and others malaria is a very common cause of death.
>Mice – a real problem in most cities in Burkina Faso – can’t stand the smell of clove powder either. Alternatively you may also use chili powder or cloth soaked in sugarless sorts of vinegar.
>Ants may not be the biggest trouble people have in these countries, but they can be chased away by using cinnamon, the juice of citrus fruits, laurels, tea tree oil, the shell of citrus fruits, the smell of eucalyptus or clove powder. Please note that some of these also help against flies and that eucalyptus can be used against insect bites or stings as well.

Already last week the German TV-channel ‘WDR’ broadcasted a documentary movie called ‘GROßE MARKEN VS: FAIR FASHION’ (Great Brands vs. Fair Fashion). There in fact are many alternatives to clothes made of cotton – which is often a child-labor product produced in least developed countries like Mali, Burkina Faso. In fact there are producers of clothes made of plastic fiber, wood fiber, sheep cotton, bamboo, bottle fiber, hemp, soybean fiber, silk, polyster, linen or nylon. It’s just that most people never heard of the producers (e.g. Tshirt.in, Wijld…). This means the producers need their clothes to be expensive to cover the costs of the production. This leads to even some of those who know about these brands not being able to buy them. As soon as there are more customers, prices will probably sink, but as long as there aren’t too many people to know about these cotton-free brands these clothes will not be available to a large public.
