A few weeks ago in Pakistan, Salman Taseer was assassinated for standing up to Islamic militants who believe in the principles of their nation’s blasphemy laws which make Christians and those who do not accept all tenets of the Muslim religon as infidels deserving of being killed. A governor is murdered by his own security guard and hundreds of lawyers take to the streets in order to h ail their new hero.
Yesterday, Shabbaz Bhatti, the only Christian in the Pakistan Cabinet, was on his way home when Taliban murderers halted the car, dragged his driver from it and then pumped over twenty bullets into the body of Bhatti. Everyone knew the Taliban or some nut case would make an attempt on the life of Bhatti, BUT THERE WAS NOT A SINGLE POLICE CAR ACCOMPANYING HIS CAR!! Who in the Pakistan government thought Bhatti could be allowed to travel without police protection?
A human rights activist, Tahira Abdullah, made clear the situation in his nation. “I am sad and upset, but not surprised. These people have a long list of targets and we are all on it, it is not a matter of if, but when.”
Muslims in the Middle East are united for democracy–Muslims, Christians and non-believers. They are the TRUE MUSLIMS!
