As another story of Islamic terrorism is in the news today, the most important thing to remember is that Islam isn’t violent and the only people that think it is are racist Nazis like Donald Trump.

Moslem terrorists have hijacked the religion of Islam to make it seem violent. Moslem bombings are no different than bombings carried out by Scientologists or Moonies.

No one blames Tom Cruise when a radical Scientologist carries out a suicide bombing, so why should Moslems be judged when they bomb people?

A suicide bomber set off a powerful blast close to a children’s swing set in a public park on Sunday evening in the eastern city of Lahore, killing at least 69 people and wounding around 300, rescue workers and officials said.

The blast occurred in a parking lot at Gulshan-e-Iqbal Park, one of the largest parks in Lahore, said Haider Ashraf, a senior police official in the city. The bomb was detonated within several feet of the swings in a park crowded with families on Easter. cont

A Taliban "splinter group" has claimed responsibility.

Pakistan bombing: Suspects, arms seized after attack on Christians kills 72

Security forces, hunting for suspects in the deadly Easter Sunday bombing targeting Christians in a Lahore park, raided locations in three cities overnight and arrested suspected terrorists, a military spokesman said Monday on Twitter.

No details were given on who had been arrested or what role -- if any -- they may have played in the bombing, which killed at least 72 people and injured 341 others, Punjab province Chief Secretary Khizer Hyat said Monday.

Twenty-four children were among the dead, according to Punjab province police.

A splinter group of the Pakistani Taliban, Jamat-ul-Ahrar, claimed responsibility for the attack, saying it had targeted Christians. The group vowed more such attacks.

The overnight raids by military and intelligence agencies targeted locations in three cities across the Pakistani province of Punjab, including Lahore, Faisalabad and Multan, military spokesman Lt. Gen. Asim Bajwa tweeted.

In addition to the unspecified number of arrests of suspected "terrorists and facilitators," forces also recovered a "huge cache of arms and ammunition," Bajwa said.


White House: Taliban not a terror group

The Taliban carry out “tactics that are akin to terrorism” but are not considered a terrorist organization by the Obama administration because they do not harbor ambitions outside Afghanistan, the White House said Thursday.

Deputy White House press secretary Eric Schultz raised eyebrows on Wednesday when he described the Taliban as an “armed insurgency” rather than a terror group.
