Aids And Ebola Medical Crimes: Africa Wants Justice

African children are example to follow

In the midst of Aids, Ebola and Lassa fever, African children are always happy

By Joel Savage and Johan Van Dongen

Illiteracy is not having the ability to read and write.  According to UNESCO, 774 million people aged 15 and older are illiterate. 52 percent live in South and West of Asia and 22 percent in sub-Saharan Africa. Even though literacy is very important and is a human right, illiteracy is one of the biggest problems in Africa today.

The impact of illiteracy in Africa is very heavy to the extent that Burkina Faso, South Sudan, Niger, Mali, Chad, Somalia, Ethiopia, Guinea, Nigeria and the Republic of Benin, are seriously affected. It is not surprised that some pastors are now claiming that Aids and Ebola are God’s curses, because of lack of reading. Some clans and tribes believe they have offended God, thus; deserve such punishment. Can you imagine how the impact of illiteracy can affect the way people think?

With such kind of thinking among the literacy and the continued dependence of African leaders on Europe and America, bringing those responsible of the medical crimes in Africa, (Belgium, Holland, Germany, France, America etc) to face justice, has been a dream of illusion to pursued. It is heart-wrenching that many years after independence swept through Africa, African leaders continue to bring their bowls on shores of Europe and America, begging for food and finance, while the continent has everything available to be used towards its development and creating jobs for the common people.

The inability to solve internal problems and financing of projects, have made African leaders a sort of puppets on strings, being pulled by Europe and America. As the proverb goes in Ghana, “If your hand is in someone’s mouth, don’t knock his head,’ African leaders can’t confront Europe and America over the crimes they have committed against the continent, because they still depend on them. That actually doesn’t make African leaders smart at all.

If Africans love to read, they will not continue to say that Aids and Ebola are curses from God, after many scientists , including Dutch Professor Johan Van Dongen have challenged Europe and America that Aids and Ebola were  engineered as bio-weapons as a means to depopulate Africa.

If African leaders have totally disappointed Africans and continued to show their incompetence, the African population, including everyone who has lost his or her loved one to Aids and Ebola,  must let Europe and America pay for their crimes. They should demand the justice they need. Yesterday were Aids and Lassa fever, today is Ebola, who knows what comes next?

Would France Be Free From Terrorism Without Colonizing Many Islamic Countries?

The scramble for Africa was very swift. It was an opportunity Europeans made good use of it, but with iron fist, after discovering Africa’s wealth, in the least advanced continent. Even though malaria killed hundreds of Europeans, by 1862, they had reached the source of the Nile, then little later, they traced the route of the Niger and confirmed the reality of Africa’s rich mineral resources- ivory, gold, diamonds, tin, copper, rubber etc.

Between the 1870’s and 1900, Africa experienced European imperialist invasion, diplomatic pressures, military invasions, and eventual conquest and colonization. Among other European countries, France had Republic of Benin, Upper Volta, now Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Republic of Chad, Ivory Coast, Gabon, Madagascar, Mali, Mauritania, Mozambique, Niger, Senegal and Republic of Togo in Sub-Saharan Africa, and Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia in North Africa, then Djibouti, Lebanon and Syria.

Since most of the countries colonized by France were Islamic countries, Islam became the second largest professed religion in France, following Catholic-Christians, with an estimated total of 5 to 10 percent of the national population. France stands as the largest Muslim country in Western Europe. Do we have to ask: Would France be free from terrorism without colonizing many Islamic countries?

As the story unfolds, France ruled heavy Islamic dominant countries, including Republic of Guinea, until Guinea attained its independence in 1958.  Like Belgium, that couldn’t stand the pain of losing Congo and embarked on ruthless destruction of Congo, both physically and medically, France aimed to destroy Guinea as well. They emptied all the coffers of the bank and took everything from the state house, including the furniture to France. The newly elected Prime Minister Ahmed Sekou Touré inherited a very bad economy and complete looted country.

France still interested in Africa, established its embassies in every country they colonized and continued interfering with African politics. The reason whenever there is coup in any of the countries France colonized, they quickly send the military to arrest the situation. France seen as paradise, nationals from countries they colonized in Africa, had the opportunity to travel to France to study, request for political asylum and  to work as immigrants.

Apart from migration, a lot of Muslims were born in France, amounting to 15 percent of the total population, creating Muslim communities through out France. The country therefore has a long and complicated relationship with the Muslim world and its own immigrant population, many of whom have been in the country for generations.

Due to the heavy concentration of Muslims in France, the country is therefore an easy target for terrorists.  In the beginning of this year, gunmen shot dead 12 people at the Paris office of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, in an apparent militant Islamist attack. That’s where France should have been careful to avoid the present  attacks that have killed at least 129 people.

Under President Francois Hollande, France launched its first airstrikes against ISIS targets in Syria in September, but external attacks against terrorists, can’t weaken the foundation of terrorism threatening France, because the enemies-terrorists are within the people in the country. The France government should first fight against terrorism at home, to weaken its foundation, before concentrating on external issues.
