Fake Nigerian Christians Burnt Alive Photo Resurfaces on Facebook

It looks like the myth that Geller was pushing some months ago about Muslim hordes incinerating Nigerian Christians is resurfacing once again, this time on Facebook.

A blog by the name of Waffles at Noon covers the re-emergence of the photo:

A horrifying photo has surfaced on Facebook, one that claims the dead, charred bodies in the photo are Christians burnt alive by Muslims in Nigera. A common caption reads reads:

Christians burnt alive by Sunni Muslims in NIGERIA…(Posted by Jillian Becker in Africa, Arab States, Christianity, Christians burnt alive by Sunni Muslims, Islam, Muslims, jihad)…..PLEASE SHARE IT OR JUST UPLOAD YOUR OWN…BUT SOMEHOW SPREAD IT IF YOU’RE EVEN 1% CHRISTIAN — It is still not over yet! —

Waffles goes on to cite our piece from April that points out the fact that the picture is a fake.

Below is our post exposing the absurd falsity of attempting to pass the Congo gas tanker explosion as an example of Nigerian sectarianism.

Pamela Geller Watch: Ties Gas Tanker Explosion in Congo to Electoral Violence in Nigeria

Pamela is claiming in a blog titled, Nigeria: Muslim Hordes Mass Slaughter Christians that a gruesome picture is evidence of Muslim violence against Christians in Nigeria (be warned the picture is gruesome):

A terrible and horrifying picture indeed.

Pamela brags that she wrote about it “first” back on April 19, and then wonders “why” is America fighting in Libya to restore a “universal Caliphate?”

Huh??

It turns out however that the above picture is not evidence of some “Muslim rampage” in Nigeria! The charred bodies are a tragic result of a tanker explosion in the CONGO!! A whole other country the last time I checked! Here is the evidence from Afrik.com (I give you the Google translation since it was originally in French):

The explosion, on July 3, a tanker in the town of Sange, South Kivu, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) has resulted in 235 deaths.

Here is the original French language report where you will also find more pictures: RDC : les images atroces du drame de Sange au Sud-Kivu

You will also see an interesting picture of Muslim UN soldiers, possibly from Pakistan helping to respond to the tragedy.

Here is a report from Reuters with some more pictures:

(Reuters) – At least 230 people were killed when a fuel tanker overturned and exploded in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, unleashing a fire ball that tore through homes and cinemas packed with people watching World Cup soccer.

Officials said on Saturday the explosion late on Friday also injured 196 people, adding that the death toll could rise.

They described scenes of devastation in the town of Sange, where houses were burned and bodies littered the streets. Some people died while trying to steal fuel leaking from the tanker, but most were killed at home or watching World Cup soccer in cinemas.

Many of the bodies were charred beyond recognition.

United Nations helicopters began airlifting injured people to hospital, while Congo’s army, which lost a number of men in the blast, has sent soldiers in to help with the rescue.

“Our latest numbers are 230 dead and 196 injured,” Madnodje Mounoubai, a spokesman for the U.N. mission, said. Congo’s government also gave the same number of dead.

Marcellin Cisambo, governor of South Kivu province, where the incident took place, said the blast occurred when the fuel truck overturned, leaked fuel and then later exploded.

It was not immediately clear what caused the initial accident or later blast, but local people said the truck, which was part of a convoy, stopped when the road seemed to crumble, toppling the vehicle and spilling fuel. Fire then erupted.

“It’s a terrible scene. There are lots of dead bodies on the streets. The population is in terrible shock — no one is crying or speaking,” Jean-Claude Kibala, South Kivu’s vice governor, said from Sange, which is between the towns of Bukavu and Uvira.

“We are trying to see how we can coordinate with (the U.N.) to manage the situation and how to take the wounded to hospital,” he added.

TANKER ACCIDENTS

Roads in the area are notoriously bad after years of war and neglect in the vast central African nation.

“Some people were killed trying to steal the fuel, but most of the deaths were of people who were indoors watching the (World Cup) match,” Cisambo said.

There have been numerous similar accidents across Africa, where crowds gather around fuel tankers involved in crashes, only for the tanker to explode.

Millions of football fans across Africa were watching Ghana, the continent’s last team in the World Cup, play Uruguay in the quarterfinals of the tournament on Friday evening.

For many, who have no electricity at home, makeshift cinema halls are the only option for watching the football.

“My children were watching the football match in the cinema and then they ran out to see the petrol,” said Kiza Ruvinira, who lost three children and his sister-in-law in the blast.

“I went out to see what happened and I found my three children’s bodies myself. I don’t know how to go on.”

Mubaya Mumasura also lost three family members: “I don’t know what to do with myself I am so sad. I want the government to assist all the victims and help us.”

Congo’s weak government has difficulty providing even the most basic services, so U.N. peacekeepers began airlifting some of the wounded to nearby hospitals and aid workers were called in to help with medical treatment.

“The national Red Cross is working on collecting the bodies and taking them to the morgue, but the priority is obviously to take the wounded to the hospital,” International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) coordinator Inah Kaloga told Reuters.”

Kaloga said aid workers were trying to identify bodies before they were buried, but many were completely charred.

“It’s a catastrophe,” said Captain Olivier Hamuli,” spokesman for Congo’s military operation in South Kivu, adding that 13 soldiers had been injured and another 10 were missing.

The Kenyan driver of the truck is being held by the police.

Alain Ilunga, deputy CEO of Congo’s storage and distribution company, which is already investigating the incident, said the truck was carrying 49,000 liters of petrol at the time.

    Christian violence/reactionary violence is nothing on the scale of Muslims. This is virtually always the case thanks to the facr that Islam is inherently warinclined.

  • Anon1990

    Doesn’t change the fact Nigeria amoungst other nations suffers from Islamic terrorism.

    So it’s a fake. Fine, but it doesn’t change the fact things like this do happen.

    It’s an attempt by the globalists to divide and conquer.

    What’s the link for that Kristin? There is of course too much interfaith violence in Nigeria. Boko Haram, an AlQaeda affiliated group is behind a lot of it, but there is also violence initiated from the other side.

    How do you feel about Muslims and Christians coming together in unity, respecting each others rights: http://www.loonwatch.com/2012/01/nigerians-want-to-transcend-sectarian-and-ethnic-violence/

  • Kristin

    I am not sure what to believe here. I recently watched a video on youtube where christians were being burned alive. The video actually shows them having gasoline poured on them and then set on fire. Is this also fake?

  • faithful

    i wouldn’t take anything ya’ll say with a grain of salt. every country lies about big catastrophe’s that happen they don’t want no one to know about. but because i wasn’t there to be a witness i won’t say yeah or nay. and if i was there i’d probably be apart of the number dead. with situations like this you definitely can’t have survivors walking around telling truths. ask yourself this question…….why didnt no one mentioned survivors of this “gas explosion” hmmmmmmm? ya’ll better wake the hell up! jus know that we will never know what really happened that day.

    be blessed everyone 🙂

    @Alurict

    Apart from being authored by the most trusted wire agency in the world (more than the Associated Press), the Reuters article is pretty clear in establishing that this was an accident. The tanker hit a weak spot in the road and as a result toppled over on its side. The fuel could’ve reached the engine compartment and ignited. All it takes is one spark. They even went so far as to point out that “There have been numerous similar accidents across Africa, where crowds gather around fuel tankers involved in crashes, only for the tanker to explode.” Are you getting the assumption that the driver was a muslim terrorist from Atlas Shrugs? The first thing he was probably told when learning to drive that beast was that if there is some accident and fuel is leaking, get yourself away from the area. Doesn’t mean he’s a terrorist. Don’t forget that the Congolese are only 1.5% muslim and the driver was Kenyan. I’m sure if he was a terrorist, he’d be helping his fellas in Kenya rid the country of the Christians there. Also, it’s pretty evident that Pam wasn’t just being negligent: she said Nigeria, this pic was from the Congo and numerous agencies have acknowledged this. She obviously knew that locating the incident in the Congo wouldn’t have much effect b/c the DRC doesn’t have a reputation of religious violence. However Nigeria is well-known for this. So, as any good propagandist, she relocated the incident to make the “muslim terrorist” theory more plausible. Don’t be confused by the lies friend.

    I’m not sure where you got the idea that it was a mass murder, Pammycakes’ Atlas Spazzed maybe? It’s clearly stated in the article that it’s an accident where a fuel tanker exploded.

  • stupid way of publishing rubbish things…
    And idiot peoples still sharing it..

  • Sir David ( Illuminati membership number 5:32) Warning Contains Irony

    Another loon who thinks using capitals all the time is a good thing to use rather than facts !

  • Adrianan Hidalgo

    This atrocious GENOCIDE has its responsible … and as such should be punished at least as background … Because so many corpses will no longer be alive again .. the consequences of theirs absences … will never be
    detected ..

    It´s unacceptable that this tragedy could be carried out by Muslims….
    “Muslims are like Christians servers of God” Then they Can not be ….
    qualified as Muslims … but DEMONS using God’s name.

  • roger condeno

    Judging the real and the fake…That makes me confuse whom to believe at..But as i realize..i incline to believe the fake one…But i have my knowlage that it’s also thrue that they are harassing the christian commuity there…Only not this way B’cos this reporter are paid to make more news for thier gain..Although it’s also true that they bombed,they burned, shooted,and hacked to dead..Of course with the exception of those who got concience..Always not all..But mostly the cruelty happened this way..Like in southern part of the philippines..Where the muslim bandits or terrorist killed this way ..And it happened many times..Unlike frm the northern parts of the philippines where christian rebels only killed by shooting,hacking..But never burned or sliced to pieces..B’coz they killed with concience.. hoping to stop this inconsisted report not to aggrabiate both world.. and make war.. ” Peace to the world “

    a same story i read on facebook , simply unexpectable it was , and finally i found so shamefull act by pamella… still may god bless her and give good knowledge

  • Angam Lhungdim

    This is not an act of civilized people.

  • Zaki Choudhury

    I am a muslim and i feel ashamed and sad about how some muslims resolve to terrorism for their perverted violence addiction and use islam as an excuse. and the fact that they get so much attention that unaware people start to think that that is what all muslims are like.
    I saw this picture shared in facebook. Felt really sad and thought about googling it a bit before accepting it. Then i came to this site. And it made me angry seeing somebody using this level of lies to promote their hate against islam (not terrorism)
    but then, i read a few comments here and it made my heart swell that non musim peoples are aware of this propagandas and hate them as much as we do. and the fact that they know that not all muslims like violence.
    Thanks guys.

  • oh my god , what happened?

  • Mirza

    Dear Friend,

    No one can spread fake news because now a days media is so fast.

    My heartily thanks to media for giving correct news and Govt must punish
    them those who tries to spread fake news…

  • Truth Hurts

    Opportunist Expediency is the name of the game.

    I am trying to get into the head of these Loons at a human level, BUT with this one it is VERRRRRRRRRY difficult.

    If it is for $$$, then she is one sick nutter.

    If it is tribal sectarianism, then there are probably 2 kinds, one is supremacist & the other is one based on hysterical paranoia hate i.e. fear of being overwhelmed by the monolithic block of faceless Muslim Other.

    How can she be helped?

    With regard to supremacism, this may be egostistical based on biology, or based on culture/values. The latter is easier to tackle than the purely racist, like a White Boer demeaning Black Africans because of the current metrics.

    The Shoa has scarred many Jews & it has almost become a religion in itself. The Israel-Palestine conflict coming immediately after WW2 doesn’t help. Loonwatch is doing a sterling job in highlighting Islam is not uniquely an existential threat to Jews based upon similar verses in Islamic & Judeo-Christian sacred scriptures.

    Taqiyya, Sharia, Kol Nidre, Kings Torah & Talmud etc are used by fear-mongers to rattle the ignorant fearful baying witch-hunting lynch mobs. Two communities with more in common than many care to admit. What would Prophet Ibrahim / Avraham / Abraham (upon whom be peace) think of us his “claimed” followers?

  • Just Stopping By

    Géji: I agree with you one hundred percent (well, other than that Geller is not in an official position of political power, not now and hopefully not ever).
