Religion of Peace?

This morning while checking the news I saw that there was an armed siege at a Kenya shopping mall and that at last count there were 59 dead with 49 people still unaccounted for.  So that I wouldn't get only the conservative viewpoint on this, I checked the msnbc.com website.  This is where I got my report.

Some of the survivors reported that the gunmen told Muslims to stand up and leave and that only non-Muslims were to be targeted.  A militant Islamic group claimed responsibility saying it was in retaliation for the lives of Muslims killed by Kenyan forces leading an African Union offensive against that group.  Instead of fighting back against those forces, this group has decided to kill innocent non-Muslims.

In other news on this same website, there was a report of a Sunday morning bombing at a Christian church in Pakistan that killed at least 75.  These people, including women and children, were just leaving a morning service when the blast occurred.  One man reported that the police did nothing and just stood around.

The Christian population in Pakistan is about 4% of the 180 million and try to keep a low profile in a country where Islamist militants frequently bomb targets they see as heretical.

Let's also not forget about the Coptic Christians who have been killed in Egypt during the presidency of Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood friends.

Will we ever hear outrage from President Obama about this attack on Christianity by the so-called Islamist Religion of Peace?  I think not, he wouldn't want to offend his friends in the middle-East.
