Dozens killed as suicide bombers attack Christian worshipers in Pakistan
WaPo ^ | Sunday, September 22, 6:52 AM | Tim Craig and Haq Nawaz Khan

Two suicide bombers blew themselves up outside a Christian church in northwest Pakistan on Sunday, killing at least 72 people and wounding scores of others as they left services.

The blast took place outside All Saints Church, which dates to the mid-1800s and is the oldest Christian church in Peshawar.

Sunday’s attack occurred around 11 a.m., as more than 600 worshippers were leaving church grounds. According to security officials, the twin bombers detonated near the gate of the church, sending body parts and debris through the air.

Sunday’s bombing may be the worst attack against Christians worshippers in Pakistan since 2001, when gunmen stormed a Roman Catholic in southern Punjab and killed 15 people during services. And it was the latest violence against Pakistan’s Christian minority, which increasingly lives in fear of violence, often at the hands of militants.

No one has to slander Islam, the truth is bad enough.

There can only be one answer, He is one of them.

The dual suicide bomber technique seems to be all the rage among Muslims these days. In addition to this, earlier today two Sunni bombers blew themselves up simultaneously in a Shiite neighborhood in Iraq and killed more than 60 people.

The most aggressive of them seem to be Sunnis - I believe both AQ and the Taliban (as well as all their various smaller franchises) are part of that sect.

Muslims are doing everything they can to prove that Islam is demonic.

He’d blame a youtube video — if he thought he could get away with it again.

He'll back them, if Syria and Egypt are any guide.

“He comes from a father who was a Muslim,” said civil rights author Juan Williams of National Public Radio. “I mean, I think that given we’re at war with Muslim extremists, that presents a problem.”

Even the perpetual apologist Williams can see what’s obvious.

“Terrorists have no religion and targeting innocent people is against the teachings of Islam and all religions,” said Sharif, .............."

There is nothing innocent about an Infidel who shows no signs of converting to Islam.
I would suggest Mr. Sharif read the Koran nd the Hadiths for a better understanding of Islam. -Tom

For we battle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

The only way to win this fight against evil is to engage in spiritual warfare.

Time to nuke up. Fast and pray like your life depends on it.

Or, one day, it will.

All these Middle East Christians, from wherever, all need to get to Lebannon and take it over. The Copts need to gravitate to the Gaza Strip.

Then they and Israel could do a little “house keeping”.

They enjoy pissing on the 1st Amendment, and the 2nd as well.
