The Sacrilege of the St. Jean Bosco Massacre targeting Jean-Bertrand Aristide

The St. Jean Bosco Massacre in Port-au-Prince occurred on September 11, 1988, in which 13 to 50 parishioners were slaughtered, according to varying sources, and the church burnt to the ground. At the time Jean-Bertrand Aristide, a Roman Catholic priest of the Salesians of the Don Bosco order, was saying mass, when the building was rushed by terrorists. Protectors hurried Aristide out of the church to a barricaded residence in one of the outlying church buildings.

The St. Jean Bosco Massacre was not the first time or last Aristide's life would be endangered. He'd already defied six or more attempts on his life, since in 1985 a mass he celebrated incited surfacing tensions, which presaged the coup of Jean-Claude Duvaliers's dictatorship. Following the massacre, the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights reported that a group of participants in the massacre appeared on Télé Nationale, Haiti's government-owned television station, and promised a 'heap of corpses' at any mass that Aristide celebrated.

The real reason why Jean-Bertrand Aristide was not supposed to be in Haiti before the election

My friend, the real reason is called Election Day and five years from now. March 20 has a lot more meaning to both the International Community and Jean-Bertrand Aristide than you can begin to understand. However nobody could talk about it.

I was unable to understand why a lot of effort, energies and resources have been invested to prevent Jean-Bertrand Aristide from returning to Haiti before the election scheduled for March 20, 2011.

Jean-Bertrand Aristide and his attorney Ira Kurzban wanted us to believe that the only reason he wanted to come before the election, is because the next Haitian government might make it difficult for him to comeback. But Mr. Aristide, you could come to Haiti at any time in the week following the election because your friend Rene Preval would still be in office and would have the same power that he had before the election, and you would not have any problem
