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?”

The News – International:

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.

UNBELIEVABLE … Majority of Democrats Walk Out of Benghazi Congressional Hearings Refusing to Listen to Testimony of Parents of Murdered Sean Smith & Tyrone Woods

IT REALLY DOES NOT GET ANY MORE DISRESPECTFUL OR DESPICABLE … DEMOCRATS WALK OUT OF HEARINGS REFUSING TO LISTEN TO TESTIMONY OF THE PARENTS OF SLAIN TY WOODS AND SEAN SMITH.

As reported at The Town Hall, Democrats did the unthinkable yesterday and walked out of the Congressional hearing on Benghazi and spitting on the graves of Tyrone Woods and Sean Smith. Democrats refused to hear testimony from the parents of fallen Navy Seal Tyrone Woods and the parents of Sean Smith, who were both killed by terrorists in Benghazi during an attack that the Obama administration originally blamed on a video tape. HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE? Do these politicians realize that they work for “We the People”? How could a supposed Representative of the people refuse to listen to the people in the “People’s” House?

Words do not even begin to describe the unconscionable act that these Democrats just did.

Tweet_DEM Benghazi walkout

During the second portion of a House Oversight and Government Reform hearing about Benghazi Thursday on Capitol Hill, the majority of Democrats on the Committee left the room and refused to listen to the testimony of Patricia Smith and Charles Woods. Ms. Smith is the mother of Sean Smith, an information management officer killed in the 9/11 Benghazi attack. Charles Woods is the father of Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods, who was also killed.

SICK, JUST PLAIN SICK! The only Democrats who stayed for testimony of the parents were Ranking Member Elijah Cummings and Rep. Jackie Speier.

UPDATE I: PJ Tatler has VIDEO of the hearings of Patricia Smith, mother of slain U.S. Foreign Service information officer Sean Smith and Charles Woods, father of slain Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods.

UPDATE II: Weasel Zippers has a list of the cowardly Democrats who walked out on the parents of two American heroes who gave their lives for this country. You might want to call their offices and give them a piece of your mind as to their disgusting and disrespectful behavior.

Liberal Comedian Bill Maher Criticized Obama Intervention in Syria … U.S. is Looking “More like George Zimmerman” than World Police

Liberal comedian Bill Maher slapped back at Barack Obama and his handling of the Syrian crisis and stated that U.S. is looking less like the World police and “More like George Zimmerman.” Ouch, that is going to leave a mark from the far LEFT.. Would that mean that Obama’s handling of Syria is racist? Maher went on to say,  “we’re the only nation, as we’ve have seen in this Syrian fiasco, who threatens to drop bombs on you while telling you we don’t want to get involved.”

Liberal comedian Bill Maher said Friday the U.S. is looking “more like George Zimmerman” with regards to military force and criticized arguments over intervention in Syria.

“Forget the Syria debate, we need a debate on why we’re always debating whether to bomb someone. Because we’re starting to look not so much like the world’s policeman, but more like George Zimmerman. Itching to use force and then pretending it’s because we had no choice,” Maher said on his HBO program “Real Time with Bill Maher.”

Maher, who has been critical of President Barack Obama’s case to intervene in Syria, continued to condemn military force.

More from The Hinterland Gazette:

Maher asked, “How did we inherit this moral obligation to bring justice to the world via death from above?” “It doesn’t make any sense. Our schools are crumbling and we want to teach everyone else a lesson.”

CNN Poll: 71% of Americans Against Obama Backed Military Strike Against Bashar al-Assad Regime in Syria

Bi-partisan support against Barack Obama’s military action against Syria …

As President Barack Obama sets out to do a media campaign blitz for a military strike against the Bashar al-Assad Regime in Syria  to win over the America people, a CNN poll shows that “We the People” resoundingly oppose it.  Obama has so miserably handled the run up to a military strike and Obama has failed to convince the American people that a strike is in our best interest. Americas are also  tired of war in the Middle East and fighting for people that hate us, that 71% of Americans oppose any military strike what so ever. Only 27% support it. Most people believe that Assad did use chemical weapons against his people; however, they want no part of any military action.

Obama has no International support, he has no domestic support … will Democrats be willing to defy the will of the people just to support this president and have him save face from his “red line” comments?

Obama_frown

As President Barack Obama presses his case for a strike on Syria, a new national survey shows him swimming against a strong tide of public opinion that doesn’t want the U.S. to get involved.

The CNN/ORC International poll released Monday shows that even though eight in 10 Americans believe that the Bashar al-Assad regime gassed its own people, a strong majority doesn’t want Congress to pass a resolution authorizing a military strike against the regime.

More than seven in 10 say such a strike would not achieve significant goals for the U.S. and a similar amount say it’s not in the national interest for the U.S. to get involved in Syria’s bloody two-year long civil war.

And if this fails in Congress Obama will not have the GOP to blame. Democrats in mass, including MoveOn.org is soundly against any military strike in Syria. Also, it shows a fail of leadership of this president as four 5 years he has done nothing but demonize Republicans. Now, Obama suddenly wants their support .

Are You Kidding Me … Senator John McCain (R-AZ) Says Shouting ‘Allahu Akhbar!’ the Same as Christians Shouting ‘Thank God!’

NO HE DIDN’T … This is what political correctness gets you, a RINO politician making a comparison as absurd as it gets … Sure it is Senator McCain and Islam is a religion of peace as well.

As reported at Breitbart, this morning on ‘Fox & Friends’ Senator  John McCain (R-AZ) got indignant when suggested Fox News host Brian Kilmeade said he had a problem with Syrian opposition groups shouting “Allahu Akhbar! Allahu Akhbar!” as rockets hit government offices demonstrated Islamist influence among the opposition. McRINO actually said the following, that shouting ‘Allahu Akhbar!’ was the same as Christians shouting ‘Thank God!’ WOW, just WOW. Suddenly, everyone is a “moderate” Muslim to McCain. The Syrian freedom fighters, the Muslim Brotherhood, all good moderate Muslims. Exactly whose side is this guy on?

OK you senile SOB, how dare you. This fossil needs to be sent packing. A note to the moron senator from Arizona, when Christians thank God it is in thanks to Our Creator, not an affirmation to murder and martyrdom in the name of Allah. Good grief, you are an evil, demented little man.

“I have a problem helping those people screaming that after a hit,” Kilmeade said. McCain responded: “Would you have a problem with an American or Christians saying ‘thank God? Thank God?’” He added, “That’s what they’re saying. Come on! Of course they’re Muslims, but they’re moderates and I guarantee you they are moderates.” McCain provided no evidence to suggest that Syrian opposition groups are moderate, as opposed to the wide swath of evidence suggesting that the opposition is heavily infested with al Qaeda.

Just curious when was the last time you heard a Christan say thank God as he cut off some one’s head?

UPDATE I: From the Right Scoop … Mark Levin rips McCain a new one with his idiot comment about comparing ‘Allahu Akhbar!’ to ‘Thank God’.

Col. Ralph Peters Blasts John Kerry on his Syria Speech … “Melodrama is Not a Substitute for Strategy” and His Stunning Hypocrisy

Once again Col. Ralph Peters calls it like it is … Melodrama and Hypocrisy!

Col. Ralph Peters blasted Secretary of State John Kerry for his speech on Syria. Peters said that, “Melodrama is Not a Substitute for Strategy.” Kerry never explained why there was a clear and present danger to the United States to get involved with attacking Syria. Peters also went on to call out Obama and Kerry for their hypocrisy. Kerry called Assad a thug and a murderer who had gassed 1000′s of his own people with poison gas, yet where was Kerry and Obama when it came to Saddam Hussein in Iraq? Hussein killed over one million people. Where was John Kerry and Barack Obama then?

ARE YOU KIDDING!!! US Closes 21 Embassies Due to Al-Qaeda Threat … Obama Officials Meet on Al-Qaeda Threat and Barack Obama Goes Golfing

The don’t call him the “Golfer” in Chief for nothing … Barack Obama is a complete joke as President … When the going gets tough, Obama goes golfing.

So lets understand this, 21 US Embassies have been closed due to what ABC News reporting that Senior U.S. Official intercepted Al Qaeda communications indicate a planned attack ‘Big,’ ‘Strategically Significant’ … and our fearless leader goes golfing. UNBELIEVABLE. How is it that high level meetings can be taking place with such an unprecedented security threats that so many Embassies and Consulates are closed in the Middle East and North Africa and Obama’s sees fit to go golfing yet again? What is actually more important to this guy, he celebrate his birthday, or US security and the war on terror?

Seriously folks, how does Obama go golfing when there was supposed terrorist chatter that has not been seen since 9-11? What is wrong with this man that he cannot comprehend that the perception that he take terrorism seriously matters? There is something seriously psychologically wrong with Obama that he cannot stop golfing in the face of what is reported as the greatest terror threat since 9/11.

Obama_golf2

On the day that almost two dozen U.S. embassies and consulates across North Africa and the Middle East are closed following the identification of a significant threat from an al-Qaeda affiliate, a senior U.S. official is providing new details about the communications intercepted from the terrorists, telling ABC News that al-Qaeda operatives could be heard talking about an upcoming attack. The official described the terrorists as saying the planned attack is “going to be big” and “strategically significant.”

“The part that is alarming is the confidence they showed while communicating and the air of certainty,” the official said, adding that the group — Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula — appeared to have a media plan for after the attack.

Authorities do not know the exact target of the planned attack, according to the official.

“We do not know whether they mean an embassy, an airbase, an aircraft, trains,” the official said.

Today on “This Week,” Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger, D-MD — the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee — said the intercepted communications called for a “major attack.”

“We received information that high level people from al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula are talking about a major attack,” Ruppersberger said. “And these are people at a high level.”

“It’s a very credible threat and it’s based on intelligence,” Ruppersberger continued. “What we have to do now is the most important issue, is protect Americans throughout the world.”

Obama State Department Closes US Embassies Across Middle East & Issues World Wide Travel Alert Due to Terror Related Concerns … I Thought Obama Said al Qaeda Was on the Run & Decimated?

 Barack Obama, the Lying King: So much for al-Qaeda being on the run and decimated …

The Barack Obama administration and State Department has closed an unprecedented number of embassies and consulates across the Middle East following terror communications that were intercepted. The State Department has closed 22 diplomat facilities from  North Africa through the Middle East and into South Asia. As per CNN, “Fresh intelligence led the United States to conclude that operatives of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula were in the final stages of planning an attack against U.S. and Western targets.

embassies_closed

The United States intercepted electronic communications this week among senior operatives of Al Qaeda, in which the terrorists discussed attacks against American interests in the Middle East and North Africa, American officials said Friday.

The intercepts and a subsequent analysis of them by American intelligence agencies prompted the United States to issue an unusual global travel alert to American citizens on Friday, warning of the potential for terrorist attacks by operatives of Al Qaeda and their associates beginning Sunday through the end of August. Intelligence officials said the threat focused on the Qaeda affiliate in Yemen, which has been tied to plots to blow up American-bound cargo and commercial flights.

The bulletin to travelers and expatriates, issued by the State Department, came less than a day after the department announced that it was closing nearly two dozen American diplomatic missions in the Middle East and North Africa, including facilities in Egypt, Iraq, Yemen, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia. Britain said Friday that it would close its embassy in Yemen on Monday and Tuesday because of “increased security concerns.”

The US State Department has also issued travel warnings.

The Department of State alerts U.S. citizens to the continued potential for terrorist attacks, particularly in the Middle East and North Africa, and possibly occurring in or emanating from the Arabian Peninsula.  Current information suggests that al-Qa’ida and affiliated organizations continue to plan terrorist attacks both in the region and beyond, and that they may focus efforts to conduct attacks in the period between now and the end of August.  This Travel Alert expires on August 31, 2013.

Terrorists may elect to use a variety of means and weapons and target both official and private interests. U.S. citizens are reminded of the potential for terrorists to attack public transportation systems and other tourist infrastructure.  Terrorists have targeted and attacked subway and rail systems, as well as aviation and maritime services.  U.S. citizens should take every precaution to be aware of their surroundings and to adopt appropriate safety measures to protect themselves when traveling.

The Great Obama reelection lie … Al-Qaeda is on the run and has been decimated

The Weekly Standard asks an important question, is Al Qaeda On the Run? Or Are We?

FLASHBACK: Obama: Al Qaeda is on ‘a path to defeat’; calls for resetting terror policy

President Obama said Thursday that al Qaeda is nearly defeated and the war on terrorism has changed since he took office, and that demands a broad rethink that includes scaling down drone attacks, transferring detainees from Guantanamo Bay and revisiting the 2001 congressional resolution that set the country on perpetual war footing.

After the death of Osama bin Laden and his top lieutenants, al Qaeda has been decimated, scattered across the North Africa and the Middle East and able to launch only small-scale attacks, Mr. Obama told an audience gathered at the National Defense University in Washington.

Gas Prices Expected to Surge Again Soon Due to Unrest in Egypt and Drop in Supply

Just what we needed for the rest of the summer as individuals try and take vacations the rest of the Summer or have to commute to work. Gas prices are expected to rise due to the unrest in the Middle East in Egypt and a drop in oil supplies.

Current prices at Gas Buddy.

Gas

Gas prices are heading up again.

Rising crude oil prices and a fall in U.S. supplies are driving wholesale gas prices up sharply. That has yet to be fully reflected at the retail level.

Prices at the pump — up 4 cents the past week to a national average of $3.52 a gallon — could climb another 15 cents or higher over the next two weeks. A year ago, the national average was $3.38.

“It’s getting ugly,” says Patrick DeHaan, senior analyst for GasBuddy.com. “First and foremost, the political problems in Egypt are driving crude oil prices, but there has also been a sharp drop in oil supplies the past two weeks. This is coming at a time when demand is at its annual July peak.”
