Religion of Peace (BS) Update: Pakistani Muslims Ransack, Burn, Christian Neighborhood to Ground

Muslims Riot in PackstanWe have read other mainstream media accounts of this attack, which in effect stress the fact that the attacking Islamists have neither killed nor hurt anyone in their razing of Christian property.

Oh, well, then that’s different! Right?

Should the Pakistani Christians offer a swell, “Gee thanks for not killing us?”

The grand assumption might be to add “if true” on those particular accounts of no individual assaults.



Over 100 homes owned by Pakistani Christians have been set ablaze by thousands of angry Muslims in the eastern city of Lahore. Police said the violence was prompted by derogatory remarks against Prophet Mohammed, allegedly by a Christian resident.

Around 3,000 Muslim protesters took part in multiple simultaneous arsons of Christian homes, that belonged to low to middle-class families from the minority community.

Police say 25 houses were burnt, but witnesses put the number at far more than one hundred.

“At least 160 houses, 18 shops and two small churches were burnt by protesters,” the independent Human Rights Commission of Pakistan (HRCP),Dr Ahmad Raza told AFP, as he was busy in rescue operations in the area.

Media reports, citing eyewitness accounts, claimed that protesters broke into the homes, looted them and burnt the remaining belongings outside.

There are no reports of any victims, but officials say 20 policemen were slightly injured during clashes, as they dispersed protestors from the neighborhood.

Sanitary worker and Christian, Sawan Masih, was charged with blasphemy by nearby residents after allegedly making humiliating remarks about Prophet Mohammed in a private conversation with barber Shahid Imran, three days prior to the act of vandalism, according to police official Multan Khan. It was Imran who is said to have complained of Masih’s behaviour.

The law enforcer also added that Masih was arrested on Friday, while the incident with alleged blasphemous remarks about Prophet Mohammed took place earlier on Wednesday. An account of the incident suggested that the young Christian was drunk. Fearing a backlash, Christians fled their homes, leaving possessions unprotected upon. Provincial law minister Rana Sanaullah promised that the government would not spare those involved in the attack, with cases already opened against those responsible for Saturday’s vandalism, noting that they will be prosecuted.

“These people committed a serious crime… there was no moral, legal or religious ground to indulge in such an act,” he told journalists.

In an interview with the Express News Pakistani TV channel the minister said, that all those whose property had been damaged will be compensated within five days.

Spokesman for the All Pakistan Minorities Alliance, Shamaun Alfred Gill, also condemned the violence and demanded that the government provide security to Pakistani Christians.

96% of the population in Pakistan (around 173 million people) are Muslims, while only 1,6% profess Christianity (around 2.8 million). Blasphemy is considered there a very serious crime, with the country’s laws allowing the death penalty for anyone proven guilty.

Last year’s case against a 14-year-old Christian girl, who was held for three weeks in a high security prison for allegedly burning pages from the Koran, triggered an outcry both from the Pakistani population and the international community. After word of her alleged crime spread through the Muslim community, a mob threatened to burn the girl alive. Police later claimed that they arrested her for her own safety. The teenager could have been sentenced to life in prison if convicted, but the judge set her bail at approximately $10,500.

Out of court blasphemy is also a very sensitive issue in Pakistan, as allegations of insulting Islam or the Prophet Mohammed can trigger violent outbursts of public anger, even when unproven. Blasphemy allegations are believed to be frequently concocted in the country to persecute religious minorities and settle personal scores.

RINO Lindsey Graham wants to limit free speech and set laws against burning the Quran

The Democrat in Republican’s clothing is at it again. Though are most Republicans really that much different than Democrats anymore? RINO Lindsey Graham is now famous for this quote he made on CBS’ Face the Nation about limiting free speech:

‘Freedom of Speech is a Great Idea But We’re in a War’


Can someone provide a story where Muslims burn a bible and Christians go massacre Muslims? Or either Christians or Muslims burn a Torah, and Jews go on a rampage and kill people over this? Of course burning the American flag happens almost daily either here or in Muslim countries. Do you ever hear anything from government trying to limit free speech over that? Of course not.

This is in reference to the Muslim nuts are have killed and beheaded people in Afghanistan in light of the Christian nut Terry Jones’ burning of a Quran recently. While Jones is a nut, burning a Quran is protected under free speech laws, yet because Muslims in Afghanistan go batsh*t crazy, now both Graham and Harry Reid want to make it crime. Unfortunately this flaming RINO Graham isn’t up for re-election in South Carolina until 2014. Hopefully then, they will primary this loser and get a real conservative to took his place. Any way they could recall him ahead of time?




County GOP Censures The Progressive Lindsey Graham On A Host Of Issues

The Republican Party of Charleston, South Carolina has voted to censure Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) for working with Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) on cap-and-trade emissions legislation. This is getting a fair amount of play, as the whole notion of purging moderates and bipartisan sympathizers from the GOP is a big deal these days.

But it’s a whole range of positions that the Charleston GOP hits Graham for taking: support for TARP and John McCain’s comprehensive immigration bill (which failed in the Senate last year, though Graham gave an impassioned speech on its behalf, telling his colleagues, “we’re not gonna get it any better than this!”) are both thrown in as well.

In fact, Graham “in the name of bipartisanship — continues to weaken the Republican brand and tarnish the ideals of freedom, rule of law, and fiscal conservatism,” the Charleston GOP resolution says, also voicing skepticism of global warming science.

Graham is a political pragmatist. He’s not a moderate in the mold of Sens. Susan Collins (R-ME) and Olympia Snowe (R-ME)–he’s more conservative than they are–but he seems to enjoy bucking the pressure to conform to conservative norms, sort of in the vein of his close friend, John McCain. He freely takes jabs at anti-Obama protesters and some of the purity-driven facets of the conservative movement.

Here’s the full resolution, as passed by the Charleston GOP:

Whereas, U.S. Senators Lindsey Graham (SC) and John Kerry (MA) have called for a bipartisan bill dealing with “climate change” via a “Cap & Trade” energy bill;

Whereas, the basis of Cap & Trade – global warming caused by carbon emissions – is still in doubt as evidenced by the past decade of cooling temperatures;

Whereas, the people of South Carolina can ill afford the job-killing Cap & Trade bill’s ripple effects on our state’s economy and on personal energy bills;

Whereas, U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham supported TARP and has shown a willingness to discuss nationalizing U.S. banking institutions;

Whereas, U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham has shown a condescending attitude toward his constituents by calling them “bigots” when they oppose his stance on amnesty for illegal aliens;

Whereas, U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham has stated on many occasions that his primary concern is to “be relevant”;

Whereas, U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham continues to hold the Republican Party hostage and undermines Republican leadership and party solidarity for his own benefit by joining the “Gang of 10” and the “Gang of 14”;

Whereas, U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham – in the name of bipartisanship – continues to weaken the Republican brand and tarnish the ideals of freedom, rule of law, and fiscal conservatism.

Therefore, let it be resolved: The Charleston County Republican Party Executive Committee respectfully requests, with sincere sadness that the South Carolina Republican Party withdraw their resolution commending U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham and that the Charleston Country Republican Party censure U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham for many of the positions he has taken that do not represent the wishes of the people of South Carolina, such as: passing a “Cap & Trade” energy bill, bailing out banks, and granting amnesty for illegal ali
