"The white walls of the All Saints Church were pocked with holes caused by ball bearings or other metal objects contained in the bombs to cause maximum damage."

2 suicide bombers kill more than 60 Christians in Pakistan.
This is the deadliest attack against Christians in our country,” said Irfan Jamil,  bishop of the eastern city of Lahore.

The bishop in Peshawar, Sarfarz Hemphray...  blamed the government and security agencies for failing to protect the country's Christians.  “If the government shows will, it can control this terrorism... We have been asking authorities to enhance security, but they haven't paid any heed."

Hah, those "religion of peace" folks, what cut ups. Geez. But tomorrow all of the usual clueless apologists will ,again, be blaming all of this ongoing violence on us. Or anyone, except for the perpetrators and the cult of hatred that they worship. What a freaking bunch of maroons.

What is the statistic? More books printed in Spain in a single year than translated into Arabic in a thousand years? Yes, I think that's about right.

There was a incident a few years ago at, I think, a large church out west, maybe Colorado. An off-duty policewoman carrying a firearm stopped an armed madman. By shooting him.

Filling bombs with small metal objects is a very old stratagem; it was and is popular with Palestinian suicide bombers. (Who occasionally throw in some rat poison — it doesn't actually do anything, because warfarin doesn't survive the heat of the blast, but it's the thought that counts, right?)

The mystery to me is that there remain Christians in Pakistan. I guess there are people there, like the Copts in Egypt, who just refuse to be ethnically/religiously cleansed. There are places where the dominant majority really would rather the nation be Christenrein, as it is already Judenrein.

The situation in Nairobi continues where the Shabab, a branch of al-Qaeda, instructed Muslims to leave a large shopping mall and then proceeded with wholesale slaughter.

All Muslims whether Peaceful for the moment or Jihadis have one thing in common: A Great Despising and intense hatred towards all idol worshipping infidels.

That is their only way of avoiding condemnation from the heartless black rock in Mecca that they wail out face planted submission to 5 times a day for their entire lives.

BTW, all Christians are seen by all Muslims as the target filthy idol worshippers in need of conversion by the sword or a ritual death by beheading and celebration of their bloody deaths.

No wonder Obama like the Muslims so much.

Who is the martyr here? The suicide bomber blowing himself up willingly for his faith, or the christian, dying unwillingly, for his faith?

I guess God will sort it out.

Not exactly. The New Life Church in Colorado Springs (about a mile from where I used to live) had a security team. A man opened fire in the church parking lot and went inside. The security team responded and a woman in the team wounded the shooter who then killed himself. This is what very often happens in these mass killings - they kill themselves when someone shoots back. Imagine that.

I really enjoyed my time in Peshawar in the 90's. It is a shame what has happened to it.
