Islamists declare war on Ethiopia...

Poor Ethiopia..the last thing they need is this....
Ethiopia is 'technically at war" with Islamic forces in Somalia and has become a target for terrorism, the prime minister said yesterday.

Hard-line clerics of the Islamic Courts Union who now hold sway over Somalia's capital, Mogadishu, and several key towns in the south of the country have declared holy war against Ethiopia.

They accuse their majority Christian neighbour of sending thousands of soldiers over their shared border to prop up the weak transitional government, which stands as the only counterpoint to the fundamentalists' power.

"The jihadist elements within the Islamic Court movement are spoiling for a fight. They've been declaring jihad against Ethiopia almost every other week," Meles Zenawi, Ethiopia's prime minister, said. "Technically we are at war."

How do we stop this mess? How many times do we need to hear that the "religion of peace" is not to blame for the state the world is in now?
