There was a bombing in Lahore, Pakistan last weekend. Not that you’d know about it from media reports. Here’s what the U.S. State Department had to say about the incident:
“This cowardly act, which targeted innocent civilians in the Gulshan-e-Iqbal Park, has killed dozens and left scores injured,” the State Department said in its release after the attack in a busy park in the eastern city of Lahore on Sunday evening.
Here’s what the scene looked like in Lahore.
Emergency services had their hands full with over 70 dead and over 300 wounded, many of them in critical condition.
Please note that there is no mention of “who” did the bombing. You can probably guess, but we’ll tell you anyway. Muslim terrorists. Remember that Pakistan is a Muslim country where Sharia Law is the rule.
Why, you are probably asking yourself, would Muslim terrorists attack a group of innocent civilians in a park? In a Muslim country?
Good question and you’ll not get the answer from the Department of State.
Because, the “innocent civilians” were actually “innocent Christians” who were in the park celebrating Easter. You know, that holiday that commemorates Jesus Christ rising from the dead.
That’s quite different from Muslim holidays where they celebrate a pedophile “prophet.”
How do we know it carried out by Muslim terrorists and was targeting Christians?
Jamaat-ul-Ahrar, a faction of the Pakistani Taliban, which claimed responsibility clearly said it was to challenge the government and Christians were the target.
“The target was Christians,” the terror group’s spokesman Ehsanullah Ehsan was quoted as saying. “We want to send this message to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif that we have entered Lahore.”
The Pakistani Taliban. Those would be the same people that sheltered bin Laden in a compound in Pakistan.
That’s one reason I carry a gun. Even to – and especially to – church. In the world of soft targets, there aren’t many that are softer.
