Punjab: acquittal for 70 Muslim extremists on trial for the Gojra massacre
AsiaNews.it ^ | 06/11/2011 | Jibran Khan

In August 2009, ten people died, eight burnt alive. Four churches were destroyed. Threats against Christian witnesses force them to flee to avoid further violence. Muslim leader says Christians “deserve” to be murdered. Catholic priest wonders whether minorities will ever have justice.

Lahore (AsiaNews) – Pakistan’s fundamentalists are rejoicing following the acquittal verdict. The country’s Christian minority is “under shock” because, this time as well, the massacre of innocent victims done in the name of the infamous blasphemy law will go unpunished. The justice system also shows its powerlessness vis-à-vis extremists who can carry out heinous crimes with total impunity, whilst the government remains silent. Meanwhile, a Muslim religious leader publicly says that Christians “deserve” to be murdered.

A Pakistani anti-terrorism court acquitted 70 people who, in various roles, were involved in the Gojra massacre of August 2009 (see Fareed Khan, “Eight Christians burned alive in Punjab,” in AsiaNews, 2 August 2009). The anti-Christian violence broke out following blasphemy allegations. During a wedding, a group of Christians supposedly burnt pages of the Qur‘an, a pretext used to strike at the religious minority.

During the attack by hundreds of extremists (brought in by bus and trucks), ten people died, eight burnt alive. Four churches and various homes were also set on fire.

Following the Gojra attack, instead of arresting the culprits, police, twisting the facts, took into custody a number of Christians for attacking the “other group”. The unjustly jailed Christians were eventually released but after several months.

According to the court, the acquittal last Tuesday was due to the absence of Christian witnesses in the courtroom and the lack of evidence against the accused.

Don’t you have that backwards?

I certainly consider them so, as they constantly
tell me in no uncertain terms.

For comparison's sake, this is an ongoing current democrat technique via SEIU members against whatever enemy they see fit. Deaths have not yet occurred, but notably injuries have been inflicted on a black man in a wheelchair by democrat thugs.

We're going to find out, sooner or later, if Abdul will pray, to a glowing crater.

If democrat thugs and muzzies unite in the US its over. We may lose the country.

'If the islamists ever get to 10% of the population we will lose the country.

Part of the problem is still treating mosques as if the were churches instead of safe harbors for terror types.

Every time I hear Islam is a Religion of peace if I were asking the questions to any Politician and I would say tell me where an example of that statement is true.

Islam is the religion of peace just like everyone who has a different opinion from Barky is a racist. The two comments have a lot in common.

Both stem from Tyrannical regimes that tolerate no dissent of their dear leader whatsoever.

Thought so.
I have a great book called, Hitler Warned Us.
it documents every step of his program of conquest
in his speeches.

Can’t happen soon enough. The only way to defeat Islam
is to destroy the pillars of it’s belief. The omnipotence
of Allah can be toppled in a stroke.
With the foundation swept away, nothing remains.

after reading the Sira, in addition to Quran and ahadtih, i believe Islam is literally the religion of Satan.
(in Mo’s own words, the Angel shook him, terrified him, and tried to choke him? sound like any Angel you ever heard of?
Psalms shows Satan dislikes music. Islam forbids it. Old and New testaments share ONE sacrament. Marriage. Islam makes women literally property. a field to “tilth” as they will...).

but sadly, simply destroying the black rock in Mecca,
won’t destroy Islam.

In fact, Islamists tried to destroy it themselves, many centuries ago, as a form of “idolatry”.
(and the Saudi’s themselves, have already bulldozed many religious and historical sites, even in Mecca itself.)

Robert Spencer at jihadwatch.com, Dr Bostom, and others, know much more than i do, and cover it better.

i wish there was an easy answer.
...but Islam is seditious by it’s own doctrine. that would at least be a good start.

The Crusaders couldn’t, and we won’t. But somebody will.

For example, if a WMD goes off in Israel, Russia or India, Mecca could disappear that same day.

There can’t be islam with “The Three Pillars of Islam.”

Destroying Mecca will destroy islam utterly. It’s a vicious cult but totally brittle. Islam has a glass jaw. It won’t be able to reform and carry on, any more than the Aztecs and Incas carried on after the capture and execution of their living godheads. It will be like throwing a switch. There will be a period of mass insanity, mass unrest, mass murder, mass suicide. But Islam will gone, vanished like a bad dream.

You may be referring to a time a thousand years ago when the black moon rock might have been stolen by competing religious factions. This goes to my point. The black moon rock (or more probably a substitute) was "found" and replaced in the Kaaba. They could not carry on Islam without the moon rock. And a thousand years ago, the news did not carry the story of the purloined and replaced moon rock to the corners of the world. A crater where the moon rock was located could not be hidden from the world today. No mecca, no islam.

Are you familiar with the mission and operational activities of Soviet submarine K-172 during the 1967 Six-Day War? If not, you should be, REALLY need to be, and I'd be glad to fill you in. President Johnson's response was instructive, about what you'd imagine, anddirectly reflected in both the U.S. non-response to the Israeli attack on the U.S.S. Liberty and Johnson's decision not to seek reelection.

He really didn't want to be thought of by history as another Hitler, the man who threatened Israel's Jews with another Holocaust.

Accordingly, Israel revised their national nuclear warfighting policy:

1: Israel will not be the first to introduce the use of special (nuclear) weapond in the Mid-East.

2: In the event of another Holocaust, Israel will pull down the pillars of the Temple of Humanity.

Fixed!

Destroying Mecca will destroy islam utterly.

Maybe not the Sufi. But they're not the problem

I'm happy to start with the Shariaists, and work down from there until we need to regroup and reload.

200 years from now, I want their children's children's children's children to cower and cringe in fear whenever they hear the sounds of jet engines overhead because their legends tell of fire from the sky.

I want them to hide in dark caves and holes in the earth, shivering with terror whenever they hear the roar of diesel engines because the tales of their ancestors talk about metal monsters crawling over the earth, spitting death and destruction.

I want their mothers to be able to admonish them with "If you don't behave, the Pale Destroyers will come for you", and that will be enough to reduce them to quivering obeisance.

I want the annihilation to be so complete that their mythology will tell them of the day of judgment when the stern gods from across the sea .. the powerful 'Mericans .. destroyed their forefathers' wickedness.
