Islamists Continue to Target Christians

Adherents to the Religion of Peace™ murder on Easter.

The true adherents to the Religion of Peace™ claimed responsibility for the suicide bombing that killed 72 and wounded 230 in a park in eastern Pakistan on Easter. The park was filled with Christian families celebrating the holiest day on the Christian calendar. The jihadist who belonged to Jamaat ul-Ahrar, a group that splintered from the Pakistani Taliban, deliberately detonated near women and children.

A spokesman for Jamaat ul-Ahrar said, “It was our people who attacked the Christians in Lahore, celebrating Easter. It’s our message to the government that we will carry out such attacks again until sharia [Islamic law] is imposed in the country.” As if families picnicking in a park celebrating life and hope were so abhorrent that they deserved horrific death. The Pakistani government vowed to stamp out not only the terrorist infrastructure, but the ideology. In response to the attack, it is hunting down the group that detonated the bomb. But that’s coming from the nation that for years was a safe haven for Osama bin Laden.

“Mass-casualty terrorism has become an almost daily occurrence, and there’s a danger that the world will become inured to it as a new normal,” wrote The Wall Street Journal’s editorial board. “That is dangerous. A terror group that targets women and children without remorse wouldn’t hesitate to kill tens of thousands, even millions, if it can acquire the means.” That’s why a bombing a half-world away matters so much to us at home.
