I have reasons to believe that the Northern elite, espcially the traditional rulers (Emirs) are tacitly behind all the religious and secterian violence in the North. They have not done much to stop their subjects from killing Christians and burning their churches. They rather see is as victory of Islam over Christianity. That is why I do not take their condenmination of every ritious act seriously. They should be held responsible for failing in their duty to stop violence at the initial stage before escalation. Who is fooling who?
