The first thing we should do is try to find the whole story.
Some questions to ask:
How many of these over crowded boats have recently make this voyage?
How many instance of violence have their been?
How many Christians were on the boat, why were those 12 singled out?

The boats attempting the 300 mile ocean crossing are ver overcrowded. I imagine many people can not hndle the stress.
More on the story can be read

HERE


Keep in mind this killing of Christians on these trips does not seem to be the norm

because of religious hatred?


During the crossing, the migrants from Nigeria and Ghana believed to be Christians were threatened with being abandoned at sea by some 15 other passengers from the Ivory Coast, Senegal, Mali and Guinea Bissau.

Eventually the threat was carried out and 12 were pushed overboard. The statement said the motive was that the victims "professed the Christian faith while the aggressors were Muslim."

The surviving Christians, the statement said, only managed to stay on board by forming a "human chain" to resist the assault.

That seems to be an excuse not a reason.

What happend on this boat that caused this to happen and why were those 12 singled out.
those boats are an every day occurance, but up unti this incident there does not seem to have been any violence among the passengers.
What was different here?

And Christians fed Muslim teenagers to awaiting alligators to be eaten alive in CAR. Jews have successfully set up an apartheid State of epic proportions. Christian nations have led a war which has led to the deaths of over 500,000 Muslims in Iraq, caused a massive sectarian rift and spawned ISIS.

My question to you is... Did people do the above? Or did Christianity and Judaism do the above? Because I'll tell you one thing, the people actually doing these things love to play the narrative that "Islam does this and that..." And "Muslims you need to answer for this!"... Well guess what? It would be utterly retarded to walk down to the local baptist church or orthodox synagogue and start demanding of the congregants there to answer for other people's crimes. The only type of Muslim that would have that line of thinking would be an Al-Qaeda or ISIS member, please don't be a mirror image for these groups.

It is bad enough that people have to flee from man-made disasters such as conflicts/war...it is a tragedy that artificial and arbitrary lines that make up a "nation" means that some people are allowed in and others are not...when all of Earth belongs not to man...but to God.
Perhaps in this age of globalization...we need to rethink the concept of "nation" so that it is more in line with the idea that all humanity shares the Earth and we are all brothers and sisters in humanity.....?......

The human condition is bad enough, but throw religion and the tribalism it invariably engenders into the mix, and the situation is far far worse.

Those that do terrorist acts are not following their religion. They are terrorists that profess to follow a religion.

Terrorists are terrorists. It does not matterwhat if any religion they profess to follow. They are all the same.

the reason is religious hatred, the excuse is probably overcrowding.
