Funny how they blow up a mosque on one of their holy days and by chance Obama is on vacation in Hawaii. He really knows when to head out on these holidays, don't he? n/s

Oh good, they’re getting back to just killing each other. If that’s the case, carry on Muslims!

Zer0's "on leave" so frequently that most everything doesn't happen "on his watch".

When someone mentions the vast numbers of Christians murdered by Muslims, Muslims like to point out that just many Muslims also die in religious persecution every year.

They don’t mention that the Muslims are being killed by other Muslims (Shia victims in Pakistan and Afghanistan, Sunni in Iran).
