So now they are going for civilian soft targets. Very brave... NOT.

'Ethnic' cleansing at its worst. No suicide bombers here as they know they will not get into heaven.

They found Islam and can't stand that others believe differently so will kill them any chance they get. But this is all random of course. Only "nutcases" do this.

"Nutcases" are like viruses. Or something. Randomly distributed. This could happen anywhere.

In extreme Islamist countries they do not tolerate other religions, and they seem to believe it is ok to murder all "infidels" (people who dont believe or accept their Islamic religion. Yet, in "christian" countries, these people are granted the freedom to do what they like, without hindrance. Something wrong here.

Islam once again persecuting others. No surprise there. Doesn't matter what religion you are (even if you're an Islamic sect that isn't acknowledged by the main sects), hindu, buddist, jewish, wiccan, or voodoo, they want you to be either subversive to their ways or one of them.

Last night they hit the Egyptian church they were proclaiming to be protesting about in Iraq. Many killed and wounded. This quote from Yahoo news: Kameel Sadeeq, from the Coptic council in Alexandria, told Reuters: "People went in to church to pray to God but ended up as scattered limbs. This massacre has al Qaeda written all over, the same pattern Qaeda has adopted in other countries."

I don´t know why anybody is surprised. This extermination of Christians and Jews is not different from what has been going on all over the islamic world; only the degree is different. While in moderate muslim countries the process is slow and steady, by steadey discrimination Shariah laws for dhimmis, in radical countries the activists go right for the throat.

That newspaper writers report this as something new only shows their ignorance.

Honest Dictator:

" Islam once again persecuting others. No surprise there. Doesn't matter what religion you are "

Not quite true. While islamic laws give Christians and Jews (the "people of the book") the 3 options of either 1. convert to islam, 2. live as second-class dhimmis or 3. die, for polytheists and atheists there is no option no. 2. Which simplifies the choice...

I don´t know why anybody is surprised. This extermination of Christians and Jews by Al Quada in Iraq is not different from what has been going on all over the islamic world; only Al Quaida in Iraq carries it out more quickly than the gradual process in more moderate countries.
