Muslim Kills 22 Muslims In Pakistan Mosque

From those tireless defenders of the faith at the Associated Press:

Suicide bomber kills 22 in Pakistan Shiite mosque

By Zarar Khan, Associated Press Writer

ISLAMABAD – A suicide bomber attacked a crowded Shiite mosque south of the Pakistani capital on Sunday, killing 22 people and wounding dozens more in the latest carnage to hit the U.S.-allied nation, officials said…

Fedayeen al-Islam, a little-known group believed linked to the Taliban, claimed responsibility through a spokesman. Pakistan also has a history of sectarian violence that often involves attacks by Sunni extremists on minority Shiites

Sunday’s suicide bomber set off his explosives at the entrance to a mosque in Chakwal city in Punjab province, about 50 miles (80 kilometers) south of Islamabad, during a religious congregation, said Nadim Hasan Asif, a top security official in Punjab. He said the blast killed 22 people and injured more than 30.

"The suspected man was stopped at the entrance and pushed himself in and exploded," Asif said.

Another police officer, Nasir Khan Durrani, said the attack could have been much worse. "Had he succeeded in exploding inside it could have caused a much bigger loss because there were hundreds of people inside," Durrani said.

Chaudhry Nasrullah, the top health official in Chakwal, confirmed that 22 people were killed and that more than 50 were injured, a dozen of them critically. He appealed to the government to send helicopters to evacuate the most seriously wounded…

A man identified as Umar Farooq who says he speaks for the shadowy militant organization Fedayeen al-Islam told The Associated Press via telephone Sunday that the group had staged the attack on the mosque as part of a "campaign against infidels."

Little is known of the group, but it is believed linked to the Pakistani Taliban. In the past it has claimed responsibility for other attacks, including the bombing of Islamabad’s Marriott Hotel.

Pakistani Taliban chief Baitullah Mehsud has said his group was behind the attack on the police academy, which killed 12 people, including seven police…

Another day, another mass murdering Muslim blowing up a Mosque. And the media yawns.

Where are the claims that Pakistan must be in the midst of a ‘civil war’?

Where are the suggestions (from Mr. Biden and others foreign policy experts) that Pakistan be partitioned into its various Muslim sects?

What is different about the situation there and the ginned up stories we had to endure about Iraq for so many years?

    They should pass a law banning bombs.

    That will take care of the problem.

      Like that Rusty.

      Still think that MSM should be calling these “Homicide Bombers” to take emphasis off the nut jobs who kill themselves and onto what they actually do i.e. murder others.

    This all George Bush’s fault!

      Obviously, the bomber was a victim. People made fun of the way….oh….hell…that’s just too easy.

      Never mind.

  4. jobeth says:

    Muslims are so driven to kill that if they can’t kill Jews or Christians…they settle for killing other “religion of Peace” muslims.

    The important thing though is that they get to kill! Someone! Anyone!

    I get intense chocolate cravings…Sort of the same thing for them.
