Home » Christian Minority In Pakistan Pounded By Islamists In Brutal Suicide Bombing
Pakistani Christians are under siege. In an unprecedented attack on the Christian minority in Pakistan, at least 78 people were killed in a suicide bombing outside a church in Peshwar. The number of casualties will surely increase. With an attack of this magnitude, knowing the official death toll will take some time.
What cowards, what heartless savages. Islamists continue to prove their soullessness. And instead of condemning these attacks, government officials cater. They attacked as worshippers were leaving the church in the city’s Kohati Gate district. Church goers were expecting to get a meal of free rice on the church lawn when the bombs went off.
Instead, they got body parts blown off, or completely obliterated. What was to be a peaceful Lord’s day turned into terror. Death on the Lord’s Day came for Pakistani Christians at the hands of the merciless Taliban militants, determined to kill as many Christians as possible.
“There were blasts and there was hell for all of us,” said Nazir John, who was at the church with at least 400 other worshippers. “When I got my senses back, I found nothing but smoke, dust, blood and screaming people. I saw severed body parts and blood all around”
Survivors could only stand shell shocked in the horror. And all the while, trying to find survivors and identifying the dead becomes an impossible job. But knowing who committed the attack is more than obvious.
“All the indications suggest that this was an attack by the Taliban,” said the government official who spoke to CBS News on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to journalists. The official said at least 600 people were present in the church when the attack took place.
Now it all makes sense. Hospitals have been overrun with victims of the attack, to the point to where they cannot keep up with the influx. They are running out of caskets for the dead and beds for survivors.
This isn’t the first horrific attack on the Christian minority in Pakistan, but it is the deadliest. Islamic jihadists have been responsible for countless attacks on Christians and other minorities in the past, but this is the worst of them all.
Why? It’s Islam, and it’s because the government is only trying to “talk” with the Pakistani Taliban. Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, who took office in June, is attempting to negotiate a peace agreement with the Pakistani Taliban. The Taliban wants a release of prisoners and other “preconditions” before agreeing to a “peace settlement.”
This is laughable. How many times does it take for history to repeat itself before the message becomes clear? There is NO peace with Islam in any form of fashion, except in submitting.
Sharif condemned the church attack in a statement sent to reporters, saying, “the terrorists have no religion and targeting innocent people is against the teachings of Islam and all religions.”
It’s the same broken record playing the same song of “Islam is the religion of peace,” but when the same lie works so beautifully, why change it up? Keep playing the broken record. There’s no need to change the song.
Naturally, the Obama Administration has insisted the Pakistani government crack down on “Islamic militants.” Just like they have in Syria, right? Never mind, wrong country. The worst part is that members of the Afghan Taliban’s role in this. The Afghan Taliban use Pakistan as a “base” to carry out their attacks on U.S. troops in Afghanistan. So, who’s side is Pakistan on? Again, this is Islam. There aren’t “sides.”
But with the U.S. ending its military operations in Afghanistan in 2014, attacks of this magnitude will only increase. Not that they would be stopped. Violence and carnage will continue. The dead bodies will continue to pile up and there is nothing anyone can do about it. Islam wins. The “religion of peace” will continue doing what it does best and world leaders will turn the other cheek.
