On the verge of a civil war, the Ivory Coast is facing a forced Islamist takeover of its government, a move being pushed by the Obama Regime and the U.N., whose leaders reportedly are ignoring the nations own procedures that determined Laurent Gbagbo, a Christian, legitimately was re-elected president.
OBSERVERS France24 –This footage was taken on Monday, February 28. It appears to show two men bound and gagged lying in the middle of a pile of burning tires. One of the men is still alive. People from the surrounding mob continue to hit him and drag him into the centre of the blaze. At one point in the video, you can clearly see a vehicle with BAE [‘Brigade Anti-Emeute’, Anti-Riot Police, in English] written on it. The BAE is the police force that remains loyal to outgoing Ivorian president Laurent Gbagbo.
The Ivory Coast has been locked in a deep political crisis since the presidential election on November 28. Both Laurent Gbagbo (Christian) and his rival Alassane Ouattara (Muslim) claim to have won the presidential election on November 28, and both have declared themselves president. But Alassane Ouattara is the only president recognised by the international community after the Independent Electoral Commission declared him winner.
Since mid-February, violence has intensified all around Abidjan between security forces and the pro-Gbagbo militia on one side and Ouattara supporters on the other. According to a statement by Gbagbo’s Interior Minister Abdoulaye Traore, three Gbagbo supporters were killed Monday night by ‘rebel attacks’ in the sprawling district of Abobo, in northern Abidjan.
