Brutal. There are few people more peaceful than Sufis.

Why do Mohammedans hold their own lives and those of others so cheaply?

MisterCreosote, you are on a roll. Don't bother trying to prove to us that Sufis are not peaceful. We believe every word you say.

It is difficult to understand this

MisterCreosote: "Ah yes, the voice of Wikipedia. Sufis are all peaceful !"

Actually, I'm glad you posted that. It proves you have no idea what you are talking about when it comes to religion -- which in turn means that, of course, all your comments on Islam are moot. But hey, you're probably like Molenir: "All I need to know about Islam I learned on 9/11". In other words, ignorance is bliss (except you torture yourself with it).

"Why do Mohammedans hold their own lives and those of others so cheaply?"

Please... this from a culture in which guns probably kill more in your nation in one year than all the suicide bombers in the world combined in the same year. Radicals hold life cheaply, bottom line. It is not limited to religion/beliefs -- except that it's the belief of fools. As bad as the people committing these acts are those who are intolerant and blame it on an entire group of people (in this case one that takes up 1.5 billion or so people in the world).

But, do go ahead Creosote and show us all the links to Sufi violence.... or let me guess, "You don't have time"?

Well then, here's a word of advice; don't take soundbites from people like MisterCreosote, who clearly know less about religion than even you. Sufism is indeed a religion of peace. The people who killed them, no.

MisterCreosote: And you still haven't disproven my previous point: "Please... this from a culture in which guns probably kill more in your nation in one year than all the suicide bombers in the world combined in the same year."

Since you're such a fan of Wikipedia while you dis your own arguments posting links to it, why not check it out? :)

Seriously, bro, you need to chill out. When you study a bit about Sufism come on back and we can talk some more. Until then, please check your intolerance at the door. I will say one more thing: for all the hate you aim towards Islam and religions you know nothing about, you are literally no better, if not worse. It's quite sad, really. I came on here talking about how brutal these deaths are, and your answer is to turn it into hatred towards something you know nothing about.

Ah yes, the religion of peace blowing each other to pieces. Sort of reminds you of the Spanish inquesition, or N Ireland. It's usually a control thing disguised as a religious issue. For example, the Sunni minority used to run the show in Iraq. Now the Shia are in control, sort of. It would seem that when the radicals can't find infidels to blow up they are more than happy to blow up any Muslim whom they disagree with. Nice.

Please don't fall into the same idiot follies that MisterCreosote has. The Sufis and Islamic militants are not at all alike, and it's sad that so many people put them in the same boat. It's like me saying you are the exact same as a Christian hiding in a bomb shelter in Utah with automatic rifles because the 'second coming' is around the corner. It's simply ignorant to generalize. The Islamists attacked the Sufists because they latter go against the radical shariah law they dictate. The former are not fighting back -- so stop with this 'blowing each other to pieces' bit. The Sufists here are no more to blame than the victims in the Twin Towers on 9/11. You blame the Sufists for inspiring the violence then you blame the victims of 9/11 for what happened to them.

It's the old lesson: Play with fire and you are bound to get burned.

(Elements of) the Pakistani gov't believe that supporting radical islamist movements will give them leverage against India and the United States. But you can't encourage terrorism and insurgency on your borders without destablizing your own territory. These "investments" have been comming to around to bite Pakistan in the rear for some time now, yet the ISI continues investing. It's not clear, at this point, if they have any control at all.

"Islamist militants"

I'm getting tired of hearing about Islamist militants.

Only weak, cowardly, ignorant people would do this. Wanting to show they are right and strong, and they show the opposite. Pathetic.

Pakistan politic,is about pro-sunni,pro-sufi,pro-shia,pro-baluch,pro-this and pro-that.

Pakistan needs to reduce all its woes,it very complex its woes,but one day these killings, will stop for good.

"The Sufis [ about whom smith knows nothing ] and Islamic militants are not at all alike, and it's sad [ but of course, for lefties anything jarring to their world view is 'sad' ] that so many people put them in the same boat. It's like me saying you are the exact same as a Christian hiding in a bomb shelter in Utah with automatic rifles because the 'second coming' is around the corner. It's simply ignorant to generalize. "

It is simply ignorant to generalize. What's worse is fabricating scenarios like the bomb shelter one to bolster your half-baked argument. Any credible accounts of militant xtians with rifles and bomb shelters in Utah? No. There are none.

Well over ten thousand documented acts of terror done in the name of Islam world wide since 9-11 and still the Left thinks their moral relevance and even their moral inversion fools people.
