Posted on 09/22/2013 3:43:30 AM PDT by Zakeet

A suicide bomb attack on a historic church in northwestern Pakistan killed at least 52 people and wounded over 100 Sunday, officials said, in one of the worst assaults on the country's Christian minority in years.

The bombing underlines the threat posed by Islamic extremists as the government seeks a peace deal with domestic Taliban militants.

It occurred as worshipers were coming out of the church in Peshawar city after services ...

Savages. Medieval savages.

I sure hope we start fighting them using their rules as opposed to ours.

Slice their dead bodies open and insert pig blood, dog hair, and bacon. Let it fester. Show on tv. What are they gonna do? Blow up an innocent group of Christians outside an historic church?...

Imagine no Al Q’aida
Or Daar-al-islam
No MBs or Sunnis
(Or shi’ites)if you can,
Imagine all the people
Worshiping in Peace

Ooooo,
You might say that I’m a dreamer
That I don’t have any class
But I’d like to turn the kaaba
Into a pool of molten glass.

We are in a religious war.

It is being fought now in the Middle East and Pakistan and we are watching it with our thumbs up our ass and denying that it is coming to America as soon as it gathers enough strength.

We have a President who is sending weapons to those who would destroy us, and we sit and watch.

We keep hearing it is a few radical Islamic people, but we do not hear the moderates ,all we hear is CAIR which is itself a terrorist organization. As the Muslims grow stronger we grow weaker and there will soon be no moderates.

When this religion is not fighting other religions , they are fighting themselves. They need to be culled, when a disease hits a herd of cattle they cull the herd. This herd of animals needs to be culled and badly before the disease spreads.

Just as soon as we have a real leader [ie not a marxist puppet desirous of our destruction] the attacks will stop for some reason. Just like the hostage release when Reagan was elected [removing a similarly feckless yet American Carter.]

Very good!

Unless the civilized world opens its eyes and realizes that these barbarians need to be contained, these attacks will grow.

Biggest problem now is that they’re well entrenched in every country.

This president breaks the law by giving himself a waiver to supply arms to Al Qaeda Syrians yet uses executive orders to regulate firearms he can’t get thru CONgress.

It is beyond time for impeachment.

Innocent, unarmed people just attending church and just about to line up for some food handouts....wow! What a threat to the muzzie world.

Cowards! Islam is an evil and cowardice theology/ideology.

Even the muzzies that say they are moderate and are against this....seldom stand up against it. Guilt by association.

Our PC leaders are so blind when it comes to Islam. They are so caught up trying to promote their own stupid agenda, they cannot see the enemy at the gate.

Islam...a religion of peace. What a complete joke.

Why don`t they tell the truth and say that it`s All Saint`s Church, a Catholic church, and it was bombed just after Mass had ended?

It's called the "Anything But Jesus" world view. They know the only obstacle is Christianity, so they embrace anything that will oppose Christ.

We know from the Book of Revelation that a time will come when there is lawlessness.

All of these things are foretold. We are not to fear, because we are not made with a spirit of fear. The spirit of fear comes from Satan.

All we have to do is revere the Lord- with trembling, remember that vengeance is His.

I have to ask myself, why won’t people just deny Jesus to make these Islamists people happy?

Since only one side does the killing- why won’t people walk away from Jesus?

Because we know what we know. What we are seeing exists for a moment. There is still eternity to come.

I just posted this on the LAT thread.
The “religion of peace” strikes again. Actually, not a religion, but an insane murder cult where jihadists are rewarded with plunder and rapine against infidels in this world, and are motivated to commit mass-murder by a promise of an eternal orgy with 72 virgins in the next world. What kind of sick “religion” is it where the most faithful Koran-abiding adherents blow up the Bamyan Buddhas with artillery, and burn or blow up churches from Pakistan to Nigeria? If you know them by their deeds, well, I guess we know them. The so-called “moderate” Muslims must not mind the perpetual slaughter carried out in the name of their cult, because they hardly make a peep against it. Either that, or they are too terrorized by their own co-religionists to make a peep, lest they be deemed “apostate” and hence liable to death by beheading. What a “religion!” If Hitler had only called Nazism a “religion,” he’d probably have established “Nazi temples” around the world, and the West would have permitted it.

Yes, "they" have a well known practice called taqiyya which directs their members to deliberately mislead non-members as to the true nature of their "religion". We are indeed at war but it's not about religion it's about slavery which is the true nature of their "religion".

It's important to dispel the myth that most wars are fought over religion because it demonizes true religion and disengages our will to fight for our civilization against a truly evil foe and ironically, only because they operate under a false mask of religion.

We cannot let them frame the conversation, define the words or force us to fight on their terms, if we want to win and we MUST win.

When an American kills large numbers of total strangers it is called a mass murder and the killer is called a deranged lunatic but when a muslim does this it is called a religious act in the muslim’s definition.
