Religion of Peace – Christian Pakistani Minister Shot Dead

The Pakistani minister for minorities has been shot and killed in an attack in Islamabad.

Shahbaz Bhatti, who was the only Christian in the Pakistani cabinet, appears to have been the victim of a targeted attack.

The minister had been a leading campaigner for changes to Pakistan’s anti-blasphemy law.

Islamabad police inspector Wajid Durani said the minister was returning home when his car was stopped by up to four unidentified gunmen.

They opened fire on the government car killing the minister. The driver was also injured in the attack.

Police who are investigating the murder recovered 25 bullets from the scene of the attack.

Minister Bhatti was not travelling with any guards at the time even though he was entitled to a two car police escort.

Although no group has claimed responsibility for the killing pamphlets were found at the scene attributed to the Pakistani Taliban warning of the same fate for anyone opposing the blasphemy laws.

The Vatican condemned the killing calling it an “unspeakable act of violence”.

Earlier this year the governor of Punjab, Salman Taseer, who was also calling for a change to the anti-blasphemy law was shot and killed by one of his own guards.

After Taseer’s murder, Bhatti said he had also received death threats but vowed to carry on.

In November last year a Pakistani court used the anti-blasphemy law to sentence a Christian mother of four to death by hanging.

Shahbaz Bhatti had met the family and passed on a plea for clemency.

Christians are the largest religious minority in Pakistan where 95% of the population is Muslim.

“Who cares about revolution, we just want to go to Europe for the freebies”

Chaos, militant Islam, and thousands of refugees fleeing Tunisia in the aftermath of the uprising. Thousands are flooding a tiny island off Italy. Can the Egyptian and Libyan masses be far behind ?

DAILY MAIL –Since Tunisians ousted dictator President Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali on January 14 after 23 years in power, the once-omnipotent police force has lost its grip on the throat of the people. As uncertainty reigns, the coastline has become porous. In recent weeks, 6,000 Tunisians have paid human traffickers smuggle them into Italy.

Last month Tunisia’s Jasmine Revolution ignited the tinderbox of Arab anger, leading to the toppling of brutal rulers. A new cry is being carried on the desert winds: it is freedom (and free food, housing, healthcare and welfare benefits courtesy of the socialist states of the EU)

Tunisia’s ten million people are proud that a revolution that began with the self-immolation of 26-year-old Mohamed Bouazizi, a poor vegetable-seller standing up for his rights in Sidi Bouzid, has grown into a regional revolt. But for some, their battle cry is different: they want jobs and a better way of life.

Illegal migration is a part of the complex picture that is unfolding here. The media caravan has moved on to new flashpoints in other parts of the region as the most momentous political change since the 1989 collapse of the European communist bloc unfolds. But what happens after the revolution is won ?

The answer lies in Tunisia, which was the first North African nation to overthrow its reviled leader. What has followed is uncertainty and a political vacuum as the country struggles to build a democratic framework. Protests grip the capital Tunis, strikes cripple the country, the old power is dead and new forces are rising – including the Islamists. But while many Tunisians celebrate the downfall of Ben Ali, others are seeking to escape to the prosperity of Europe, raising the spectre of a migratory flood.

Could democracy in Tunisia lead to an Islamist party taking power – and what would that mean? It feeds into the wider question worrying minds from Washington to London and from Jerusalem to Riyadh: what will follow the old Arab order that is being overturned? Will the revolutions translate into real democracy or just another form of autocracy?

Already there are troubling signs that more extremist Islamists are asserting their authority. A Polish priest had his throat slit in a suburb of Tunis. A Catholic bishop in Tunisia said he feared Islamic extremism was to blame. American news reports said the priest’s throat was cut, but the Vatican news agency said he was beheaded.

Political analysts warn that unleashing the genie of democracy in North Africa means there will be little control over the electoral outcome. The old order of dictatorship offered the West the comfort that Islamist extremism was kept in check. Now, as the West cheers on the Arab people’s quest for freedom, we are witnessing this generation’s version of the fall of the communist bloc.

As they say, be careful what you wish for. With the Islamist party no longer banned now, women can kiss their human rights goodbye. Get ready the UK, you will bear the brunt of these ‘uprisings.’

Shock Video Shows Arab Children ‘Playing’ Suicide Bomb Game

A sickening video has emerged out of Pakistan which shows young children role-playing a Taliban suicide bombing. The short video shows one boy dressed all in black — the “bomber” — bidding farewell to friends before running past a “security officer” (dressed in white) to detonate his make-believe bomb in the middle of a small group.

A gruesome “explosion” is simulated by throwing dust and sand into the air as the bomber’s “victims” fall lifeless to the ground.

According to the Daily Mail, the video was posted online by Ahsan Masood, a Pashtun from Waziristan in Pakistan who thought the video was “funny.” Masood guessed the video had been filmed in Khost, Afghanistan before being sent to him from a friend.

The distressing video seems to show innocent children using role-play to understand the violent circumstances they see in their everyday lives, the Mail notes.

Salma Jafar of Save the Children UK in Pakistan, told The Guardian: ‘It’s horrifying and alarming.

‘These children have become fascinated by bombers rather than condemning them.

‘If they glamorise violence now, they can become part of it later in life.’

US : Muslim get five years for fraud, not charged for threats to blow up White House

via Maryland man gets five years for fraud, after making terrorist threats

A Silver Spring man convicted of falsifying immigration documents had threatened to blow up the White House, the U.S. Treasury building, a federal courthouse and a Metro stop, vowing to “slaughter the enemies of Islam,” federal prosecutors said Monday in court.

Brahim Lajqi, 51, was not charged with attempting to carry out any terrorist threats, but prosecutors outlined the allegations in an effort to persaude U. S. District Judge Roger W. Titus to impose a penalty harsher than the six months in prison recommended by sentencing guidelines.

Titus agreed, and handed down a five-year sentence, saying it was necessary for the protection of the public.

“This is a defendant who articulated repeatedly a desire to engage in the most serious form of terrorism aimed at symbols most important to our country, including the White House and the U.S. Capitol,” Titus said during a hearing in U.S. District Court in Greenbelt.

Lajqi, an ethnic Albanian who came to the United States through Mexico in the mid-1980s, is a self-described “extremist militant,” who said he was trained by Bosnian Muslim rebels, according to court papers. He was angry about American military involvement in Kosovo in the 1990s, and “blamed all Albanian deaths in Kosovo on the United States,” the court papers said. He also talked about targeting Jews, court papers say.

Lajqi had previously pleaded guilty to lying on immigration documents.

Lajqi’s attorney, Gary W. Christopher, a federal public defender, said Lajqi was a “talker” and a “blowhard” who never planned to carry out any attack. He said Lajqi has lived in the United States for 27 years and has had no trouble with the law.

“We’re here today to punish him for a crime, but not the crime he pled guilty to,” Christopher said. “The question is whether he had the actual intention and wherewithal to carry out acts of mass destruction.”

According to court papers, Lajqi and a confidential informant rode around the Washington area to scout out potential targets. Lajqi said the White House was his “number one spot” but also talked about targeting a Metro train at rush hour, the papers say.

During another trip, the documents state, he suggested blowing up the Treasury building to “make them bankrupt and broke,” and noted that a dump truck would be a good place to hold explosives.

Lajqi told the informant that he knew of weapons suppliers in Montana and Canada, and that one of his brothers had connections, authorities said.

The court papers say that Lajqi told the informant they “deserve a good bomb in Capitol Hill . . . and White House. Maybe Capitol Hill more because lots of Jews live there.” That conversation occurred during a trip the pair took to West Virginia, where Lajqi unsuccessfully tried to obtain a commercial driver’s license that he said could be used to move weapons.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Gregory Welsh said in court that authorities arrested Lajqi when they became concerned he might try to seek weapons.

“He’s not just a talker,” Welsh said, “he’s also an actor.”

If he was an actor, why wasn’t he charged?
