Now, granted, things seem to work somewhat differently in Africa than in the rest of the world, but it seems to me that it would be counterintuitive for a group wishing to overthrow the government in favor of Islamic extremism to achieve their goals by killing Muslims.

Muslim extremists know Muslims are easy targets because it's a religion of peace.

It's Muslims. They kill each other pretty good, even with our interference. Basically, 900 years ago, Abdula's father stole a donkey from Mohammad's father and now, they have to kill each other.

/ the only time they stop killing each other is when they have a common enemy

I'm not sure if you're trolling.  I sincerely hope so.  If not, I hope your insufferable arrogance and ignorance is the death of you.

I'm a Muslim.  I frequent a mosque.  Hell, I frequent more than one if I'm in a different part of town.  Does that make me a "mouth breathing fundy" Smeggy Smurf?  I've been to Nigeria on a medical mission.  Plan to go again later this year.  We stayed there for over a month.  One of my colleagues (and his family) were devout Chrisitans.  You know how much trouble we ran into?  Absolutely none.  The local imams would clear out the mosque sans request (with no protest) for my colleague and his family if they needed to worship (and there was not a church around), only asking that if they put a crucifix up, they take it down.  The local ministers did the same for me, up to five times a day, once again without me even having to ask.  And that is just the way it is: no one batted an eye or confronted any of us.  Muslims and Christians (I did not have the pleasure of visiting any synagogues, or spending time with any Jewish individuals, except for one professor) lived side by side with no conflict.

Attitudes like yours, be they present in Muslims or atheists, are the danger.  You judge others as being intolerant or violent, and the vitriol you spew is so far off base that I don't know whether to take you seriously or not.

Nope.  The violence wasn't widespread enough.  All of Europe collapses into an orgy of violence every few decades.

Thanks.  It was a stressful, yet very fulfilling.  The only tight spots we got into were courtesy of the army strike-breaking with automatic weapons and armoured vehicles.  Freaking nightmare, but the experience was overall very fulfilling.

The same thing happens whenever you get two similar religious groups. Take for example the 500 years of violence between Protestant groups and Catholics. We had wholesale genocide based on that, bombs galore, and the worse kind of sect on sect violence. I lost a couple of friends myself from being blown up that way for instance.

That generally the problem we have when we view over a billion people as one group of people that are all the same.
