Terrorist Suicide Bomb Kills Christians at Pakistan Church: 60 People Killed & More than 120 Injured Including Women and Children Following Twin Suicide Bomb Blasts in Qissa Khawani Bazaar of Peshawar
Because Islam is a religion of Peace …
So where is the outrage that Christan are being killed in Muslim countries? The LA Times is reporting that a pair of suicide bombers detonated their explosives outside a historic church in northwestern Pakistan on Sunday, killing over 60 people in the deadliest-ever attack on the country’s Christian minority. The NY Times is reporting 75 people are dead as the cowardly suicide bombers detonated their bombs as as worshipers left the All Saints Church in the old quarter of the regional capital, Peshawar.
The bombing in Peshawar, which wounded 120 people, underlines the threat posed by Islamic extremists as the government seeks a peace deal with domestic Taliban militants. It will likely intensify criticism from those who believe that negotiating peace with militants is a mistake.
The blasts killed more than 60 people and wounded 120, said Arshad Javed, top health official at the hospital in Peshawar where the victims were being treated. The dead included several women and children, said Sher Ali Khan, another doctor at the hospital.
The number of casualties was so high that the hospital was running out of caskets for the dead and beds for the wounded, said Mian Iftikhar Hussain, a former information minister of surrounding Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province who was on the scene.
“What have we done wrong to these people’” asked one of the wounded, John Tariq, referring to the attackers. “Why are we being killed?”
PESHAWAR: At least 60 people were killed and more than 120 including women and children were injured in twin suicide blasts in Qissa Khawani bazaar of Peshawar, Geo News reported.
Sources said suicide bombers blew themselves up outside Kohati gate near the Pakistan Church.
Law Enforcement Agencies (LEAs) have cordoned off the area after the blast.
Chief Executive Leady Reading Hospital (LRH) has confirmed killing of 56 people in the blasts.
Emergency has been declared in the LRH.
The eyewitnesses said the worshipers were leaving the Church when the blast occurred. More than 500 people were present in the Church at the time of suicide attack.
20 Dead as Gunman Attack Nairobi Shopping Mall in Kenya (Update: Attackers were Targeting non-Muslims) (Update: Authorities Calling Possible Terror Attack) (Update: 59 Dead, Likely to Rise, Islamists Have Hostages)
CNN is reporting that dozens are injured and at least 20 are dead as gunman opened fire in a Nairobi mall in Kenya. The attack took place at an upscale Westgate Mall. In is unknown at this time just how many people have been injured or killed and the background of the gunman. A witness said that gunmen armed with AK-47s and grenades.
Gunmen attacked an upscale shopping mall in the Kenyan capital on Saturday, leading to a fierce gunbattle with police and leaving dozens of casualties.
The Kenyan Red Cross reported 20 dead, though a government official, Joseph Ole Lenku, only confirmed 11.
Fifty more people were wounded in the attack at the mall in Nairobi, said Abbas Gullet, head of the Kenyan Red Cross.
A security agent told CNN’s Lillian Leposo at the scene that the violence was a terrorist attack, but officials had yet to confirm that information, Leposo told CNN.
“They have strong reason that these men are terrorists,” Leposo said.
UPDATE I: From AP via the Jawa Report … it would appear that CNN left out this little important fact that the gunman were solely attacking non-Muslims. So they were only attacking non-Muslims, eh? Let’s go out on a limb and call this an act of terror and not workplace violence.
The gunmen announced that non-Muslims would be targeted, said Elijah Kamau, who was at the mall at the time of the midday attack.
“The gunmen told Muslims to stand up and leave. They were safe, and non-Muslims would be targeted,” he said.
UPDATE II: ABC News is reporting that 22 are dead and the attackers were targeting non-Muslims. The authorities are treating it as a terrorist attack.
Gunmen threw grenades and opened fire Saturday killing at least 22 people in an attack targeting non-Muslims at an upscale mall in Kenya’s capital that was hosting a children’s day event, a Red Cross official and witnesses said.
The attackers remained inside and firing subsided as military surrounded the mall hours after the attack. People continued to trickle out from hiding places within the Westgate mall, which is frequented by expatriates and rich Kenyans in Nairobi’s affluent Westlands neighborhood.
Kenya Red Cross official Abbas Gullet said at least 22 people were killed in the attack that police blamed on terrorists. He said the death toll would likely rise.
“We are treating this as a terrorist attack,” said police chief Benson Kibue, adding that there are likely no more than 10 attackers involved.
UPDATE III: The BBC is reporting that police first thought it was a robbery; however, is now classifying it as terrorism.
A senior police officer originally said it was an attempted robbery but later called it a possible terrorist attack.
The Somali militant group al-Shabab had threatened to strike the centre.
It is opposed to Kenya sending troops to fight in Somalia. No group has said it carried out Saturday’s attack.
UPDATE IV: Islamist gunmen holed up with hostages in Nairobi siege, 59 dead.
Islamist militants were holed up with hostages on Sunday at a shopping mall in Nairobi, where at least 59 people have been killed in an attack by the al Shabaab group that opposes Kenya’s participation in a peacekeeping mission in neighboring Somalia.
An Upside Down Obama World … GITMO Prisoners Most Pampered Ever, Reordered Gym Equipment Made by Muslims & Prison Officials Stopped Raising American Flags Anywhere a Terrorist Could see Them uld see it.
AT WHAT POINT IS ENOUGH, ENOUGH? WHEN PC GOES COMPLETELY WRONG … WELCOME TO OBAMALAND.
It is bad enough that we learned that Muslim terrorist detainees were provided a $750,000 soccer field, because that is money well spent. Now we learn from The New York Post, that during a time when our government is supposed to be cutting back on costs, there is more wasteful spending at GITMO. Because the overly pampered prisoners were provided an abundance of Islamically correct food, GITMO has to order treadmills and other gym equipment because to help the jihadists lose weight. One problem, the prisoners refused to use the equipment because it was made in America by infidels. They actually reordered gym equipment made by Muslims. WTF!!! It gets worse, if possible. The Islamic terrorist detainees even persuaded prison officials to stop raising the American flag anywhere they could see it. UNREAL!!! Does some one need to remind the Obama administration that these people are being held in GITMO because they want to kill us?
But just a few years ago, detainees got so plump from overeating hummus and other dishes from the camp’s Islamically correct menu that commanders specially ordered treadmills to help them lose weight.
Then they ordered them again — because they weren’t made by Muslims.
“Even the hunger strikers were gaining weight because of all the food, so we go out and buy all this exercise equipment and throw it in the rec yard,” a Gitmo official said of a 2007 requisition. “Within the first week, there were guys saying, ‘Hey, this stuff is made in the US — made by infidels — and we’re not going to use it.’
“So what did we do?” added the official, who requested anonymity. “We took all of that s–t out, gave it to the soldiers to use, and bought them equipment that was made in a Muslim part of the world.”
The Pentagon declined to comment.
We need to look no further than GITMO to see just how ridiculous of a PC and wasteful a country we have become. As Weasel Zippers reminds us, “meanwhile our soldiers in Afghanistan are having their hot meals cut back“.
Vatican Confirms that Syrian Catholic Priest François Murad Beheaded in Syria by Rebel Jihadist Forces (Video-Warning, Violent) … And Obama Wants to Arm the Rebels Against the Will of the People?
Because Islam is a religion of peace … Take a good look at what Obama wants to arm with American weapons.
The Vatican has confirmed that Catholic priest François Murad is dead and was beheaded by Syrian jihadists on June 23, 2013. The priest was trying to defend nuns inside a convent. Let this be a lesson to everyone what radical Islamist jihadists are all about. Franciscan Father, Francois Murad, was accused of collaborating with the Assad regime. So this is what they do, these animal. These are the same rebels fighting against Assad that fools like Sens. John McCain (R-AZ), Carl Levin (D-MI) and Robert Menendez (D-NJ) want to arm. ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!! This is what Obama, McCain and other misguided twits would rather have in power than Assad. The Obama administration has approved arming this animals. As Weasel Zippers states, So I guess Christians will now be killed with American weapons. And we hear from Obama that the war on terror is over. Really?
On Sunday, June 23 the Syrian priest François Murad was killed in Gassanieh, in northern Syria, in the convent of the Custody of the Holy Land where he had taken refuge. This is confirmed by a statement of the Custos of the Holy Land sent to Fides Agency. The circumstances of the death are not fully understood. According to local sources, the monastery where Fr. Murad was staying was attacked by militants linked to the jihadi group Jabhat al-Nusra.
Father François, 49, had taken the first steps in the religious life with the Franciscan Friars of the Custody of the Holy Land, and with them he continued to share close bonds of spiritual friendship. After being ordained a priest he had started the construction of a coenobitic monastery dedicated to St. Simon Stylites in the village of Gassanieh.After the start of the Civil War, the monastery of St. Simon had been bombed and Fr. Murad had moved to the convent of the Custody for safety reasons and to give support to the remaining few, along with another religious and nuns of the Rosary.
As these animals savagely behead Father, Francois Murad, you can here them yelling Allahu Akbar as they are taking pics with their cell phone. I am speechless. This is what we are going to back in this Syrian war? OBAMA, HAVE YOU NO SHAME!!! This is what we want in charge of Syria? Sorry, but we have no business getting involved at all. Syrian rebels have pledged loyalty to al-Qaeda. So now Barack Hussein Obama, we are in the business of helping al-Qaeda?
WARNING, and we mean WARNING: Syrian rebels beheads bishop François Murad might contain content that is not suitable for all ages. You must be 18 years and over to view.
This is why all polls show that Americans want no involvement when it comes to Syria and their civil war. A recent NBC/WSJ poll indicates Americans oppose overwhelmingly intervention in Syria. In a Gallup poll, 68% of Americans oppose U.S. Military involvement in Syria. A PEW poll shows that 70% of Americans oppose arming groups in Syria, yet that does not stop Barack Hussein Obama. According to a FOX News poll, 66% of Americans voters disagree with arming the rebels, made up of 77% of Republicans, 64% of independents and 58% of Democrats.
Asked to pick a response to stop the killing of civilians in Syria, just 15 percent in the poll say they favor U.S. military action, and only 11 percent want to provide arms to the opposition.
By comparison, a plurality of respondents — 42 percent — prefer to provide only humanitarian assistance, and 24 percent believe the U.S. shouldn’t take any action.

Iraq Authorities Uncovers al-Qaeda ‘Poisin Gas Cell’ to use ‘Chemical Weapons’ in Europe and North America
Iraqi authorities announced they uncovered an al-Qaeda poison gas plant. Five suspects have been detained over the construction of two facilities in the capital to produce sarin and mustard gas, using instructions from another al Qaeda group. The arrests follow a joint operation between Iraqi and foreign intelligence services. Remote controlled toy planes were also seized at the workshops which were to be used to disburse the chemical poison gases. The terror group was plotting gas attacks on Western Europe and America.
From the BBC:
The authorities in Iraq say they have uncovered an al-Qaeda plot to use chemical weapons, as well as to smuggle them to Europe and North America.
Defence ministry spokesman Mohammed al-Askari said five men had been arrested after military intelligence monitored their activities for three months.
Three workshops for manufacturing the chemical agents, including sarin and mustard gas, were uncovered, he added.
Remote-controlled toy planes were also seized at the workshops.
Mr Askari said they were to have been used to release the chemical agents over the target from a “safe” distance of 1.5km (1 mile), reports the BBC’s Rami Ruhayem in Baghdad.
All of the arrested men had confessed to the plot and said they had received instruction from another al-Qaeda offshoot, he added.
As the Gateway Pundit opines, So much for that “Al-Qaeda is defeated” nonsense. Wasn’t it just last week that President Obama called the war on terror effectively over? How could a President and so-called Commander in Chief be so misguided?
Welcome to the Real War on Women … Saudi Writer Abdullah Mohammad Al Dawood Says Working Women Should be Molested
Hmm, a religion of peace, eh? What about a religion that respects women?
TAKE A GOOD LOOK AMERICA TO WHAT A REAL WAR ON WOMEN LOOKS LIKE, COURTESY OF ISLAM.
The next time that Democrats falsely accuse the GOP of a war on woman, you might just want to get a reality check and see what a real’ “WAR ON WOMEN” looks like. Abu Dhabi, a Saudi writer has urged his Twitter followers to sexually molest women hired to work as cashiers in big grocery stores. HUH? You can’t make this stuff up folks. This is how stuck in the stone ages these folks are. The story goes on to say that, Khalid Ebrahim Al Saqabi, a conservative cleric, endorsed Al Dawood’s calls and said a law proposed by the government against sexual harassment in newly mixed workplaces was “only meant to encourage consensual debauchery”. YIKES, if they advance the idea that working women should be molested, what do you think they want to happen to women that were the top wage earners of their household?
Abu Dhabi: A Saudi writer has urged his Twitter followers to sexually molest women hired to work as cashiers in big grocery stores, the latest backlash from conservatives who want to roll back limited social and economic reforms launched in Saudi Arabia.
Abdullah Mohammad Al Dawood, who writes self-help books including one called The Joy of Talking, has stirred fierce debate this week via the internet microblogging service with the use of the hashtag harass_female_cashiers, to press for Saudi women to be forced to stay at home to protect their chastity.
His campaign against official moves to encourage women to work in mixed gender environments has led some Twitter users to denounce him. Others however applauded him as a fighter against government efforts to westernise and corrupt the country.
More from Atlas Shrugs, “Note, yet again, calling these religious misogynists “conservatives.” More media defamation. They are not “conservative.” These Muslims are devout.” So the next time that you are being told that Christianity and Islam is the same, you might want to educate yourself.
From Reuters, Israel has bombed Syria for the second time this week. Powerful explosions rocked the outskirts of Damascus early Sunday. Syrian state television said Israeli rockets had struck a military facility just north of the capital. Earlier this week, Israel carried out a bombing run to prevent missile transfers to Islamist militants (VIDEO). President Barack Obama defended Israel’s right to bomb targets inside Syria to protect themselves. Syria is a tinderbox about ready to explode and we have a “dithering” president who makes claims of acting if a “red line” was crossed and then backs off as he does with domestic policy like the clueless over his head “Community Organizer” in Chief he is. Being President is just a little different when you play chicken against those in the Middle East than the GOP isn’t Barack? Obama is between a “Barack” and a hard place and has no idea what to do. How’s that Arab Spring working out for you Mr. President?
Israeli jets devastated Syrian targets near Damascus on Sunday in a heavy overnight air raid that Western and Israeli officials called a new strike on Iranian missiles bound for Lebanon’s Hezbollah.
As Syria’s two-year-old civil war veered into the potentially atomic arena of Iran’s confrontation with Israel and the West over its nuclear program, people were woken in the Syrian capital by explosions that shook the ground like an earthquake and sent pillars of flame high into the night sky.
“Night turned into day,” one man told Reuters from his home at Hameh, near one of the targets, the Jamraya military base.
Amateur VIDIO of huge Explosion outside Damascus, Syria
Israeli warplanes bombed the outskirts of Damascus early Sunday for the second time in recent days, according to Syrian state media and reports from activists, signaling a sharp escalation in tensions between the neighboring countries that had already been exacerbated by the conflict raging in Syria.
Though there was no official confirmation that Israel had carried out the attack, the Israeli military later announced that it had deployed two of its Iron Dome rocket defense batteries near its northern border in response to what it called “ongoing situational assessments.”
Videos posted on the Internet by activists showed a huge fireball erupting on Mount Qassioun, a landmark hill overlooking the capital on which the Syrian government has deployed much of the firepower it is using against rebel-controlled areas surrounding the city.
Homeland Security Committee Chairman Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX) Says Terror Suspects Were Trained Before Boston Marathon Bombing Attacks
On FOX News Sunday this morning, Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX), the chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, told Chris Wallace that the Boston terrorist bombers, Tamerlan Dzhohkar Tsarnaeva, had some training prior to the before the Boston Marathon attacks. Wallace stated that the FBI now says that that toy remote controllers were used to detonate the bomb were sophisticated more than what was in the Al Qaeda online magazine Inspire. This is inconsistent from what suspect #2, Dzhohkar Tsarnaeva, told federal authorities. Rep. Michael McCaul responded that he is lead to believe from the signature pressure cookers device and the sophistication that there was a trainer(s) and it leads me to ask whether that trainer is in Pakistan or the United States.
From CBS News DC:
The chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee says he believes the Boston Marathon bombing suspects had some training in carrying out their attack.
Rep. Michael McCaul is citing the type of device used in the attack — shrapnel-packed pressure-cooker bombs — and the weapons’ sophistication as signs of training.
Homemade bombs built from pressure cookers have been a frequent weapon of militants in Afghanistan, India and Pakistan. Al-Qaida’s branch in Yemen once published an online manual on how to make one.
Rep. Tom Cotton Rips President Obama … “Five Jihadists Have Reached Their Targets in the US Under Barack Obama”
Rep. Tom Cotton (R-AR) spoke on the House floor to raise grave doubts about the Obama Administration’s counterterrorism policies and programs. Cotton stated that in barely four years in office, five jihadists have reached their targets in the United States under Barack Obama: the Boston Marathon bomber, the underwear bomber, the Times Square Bomber, the Fort Hood shooter, and the Little Rock recruiting office shooter. Compare that to the number of Islamist jihadists that reached their target in the US following 9-11 under President George W. Bush … Zero.
Sorry, but this is an issue an it needs to be addressed, America’s safety is in question. It is a disturbing trend that this has occurred under this president. Obama refuses to tell the truth about the enemy. September 11, 2001 was supposed to be a wake up call for America. However, it would appear under Barack Obama that he is even afraid to utter the words, radical Islamist jihadist (Video). But Obama does not think there is a war on terror, its an overseas contingency operation. Barack Obama does not want us to jump to conclusions when it comes to jihadists, but when it comes to him jumping to conclusions in the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin case, the Cambridge Mass situation and blaming the right and the Tea Party for the ills of society, that’s ok.
From The Weekly Standard:
“I rise today to express grave doubts about the Obama Administration’s counterterrorism policies and programs,” said the freshman congressman from Arkansas. “Counterterrorism is often shrouded in secrecy, as it should be, so let us judge by the results. In barely four years in office, five jihadists have reached their targets in the United States under Barack Obama: the Boston Marathon bomber, the underwear bomber, the Times Square Bomber, the Fort Hood shooter, and in my own state—the Little Rock recruiting office shooter. In the over seven years after 9/11 under George W. Bush, how many terrorists reached their target in the United States? Zero! We need to ask, ‘Why is the Obama Administration failing in its mission to stop terrorism before it reaches its targets in the United States?’”
Islamist Terrorist Tsarnaev Brothers Killed MIT Officer Sean Collier Because They Needed A Gun … What, No Background Check?
Imagine that Democrats, individuals who wanted to commit crimes and acts of terrorism did not want to pass a background check to get a gun, go figure …
It is being reported at CBS News, MIT officer Sean Collier was murdered because the two Islamist Terrorist Tsarnaev Brothers needed another gun. However, after they killed officer Collier they were unable to unholster his weapon. What, you mean those with evil intent did not want to take the time to fill out the necessary paperwork and pass a background check like Democrats and Obama wanted to inflict on law abiding citizens? Yet, the good people of Watertown, MA are told by liberals like Senator Feinstein of California that they didn’t need assault-style weapons to protect themselves and shouldn’t even have the choice.
MIT Officer Sean Collier – Rest in Peace
“The original question is they walked up to that car and appeared they shot the officer in the head unprovoked, that it was an assassination. But why? How did that fit into their plan? The operating theory now in the investigation is they were short one gun. The older brother had a gun. They wanted to get a gun for the younger brother and the fastest and most efficient way they could think of doing it was a surprise attack on a cop, to take his weapon and go. Officer Collier had a locking holster, it’s like a three-way lock. If you don’t know how to remove the gun, you’re not going to get it out. There was apparently an attempt to yank it and they couldn’t get it and left. “
