-Pakistan: Islamic Radicals Kill 70 Christians Celebrating Easter in Park

by Dr. D ~ March 28th, 2016


Islamic radicals in Pakistan targeted and killed over 70 Christians and injured more than 300, mostly women and children, who were celebrating Easter in a park. From The Christian Post:

At least 70 people, mostly Christians and children, have been killed in a mass suicide attack in Lahore, Pakistan, on Easter Sunday, with the Jamaat-ul-Ahrar terror group claiming responsibility and admitting it targeted Christians.

Another 300 people were injured in the bomb blast, which was carried out in a park in Lahore, close to a children’s playground which was more crowded than usual as the minority Christian population was celebrating Easter, …

"Today’s suicide bombing in Pakistan, which was specifically targeted at Christians celebrating the Easter holiday, is one of the countless examples of the escalating global persecution against Christians. Each life lost is precious. I’m disappointed that the Western world only seems to pay close attention when attacks happen here in the West. The lives lost in Africa, the Middle East or Southeast Asia are just as valuable as those lost in Europe or the United States. We should be equally outraged by their loss,"

Open Doors USA President and CEO David Curry responded to the news in a statement.

Response: It is becoming a tradition for Islamic radicals to attack Christians on major Christian holidays in the Middle East and in Africa. Tragically in this case most of the victims were women and children and yet the radical Muslims proudly announced their responsibility for the slaughter.

Meanwhile, as usual the Obama administration in their response tries to minimalize any Muslim religious motivations and connections to the terror. There is no mention whatsoever to the fact that Christians were specifically targeted on a Christian holiday. Although the administration did come out and recently condemn ISIS for committing genocide against Christians and other minorities it was only after months of pressure from Congress and religious organizations. During the major terror events that happened in Paris last year, the Obama administration refused to acknowledge that Jews and a Jewish bakery were singled out and specifically targeted.

In this situation the religious connection is so apparent that it borders on the ridiculous that the US State Department only identifies the victims as ‘innocent civilians.’ Particularly after the radicals themselves issued a statement plainly stating that they purposely targeted Christians.               *Top

    Can you imagine how President Obama would have reacted if a Christian had targeted Muslims on Eid Al-Fitr and killed 70, wounding 300, mostly women and children???
