Yet more evidence that, at least the variety of Islam these folks espouse, is fundamentally not “a religion of peace.” If anything, such disregard for innocent human life is positively satanic (and yes, before I get hate mail, I would say the same thing about a number of things white western liberals do.)

Two women described as mentally disabled and strapped with remote-control explosives — and possibly used as unwitting suicide bombers — brought carnage Friday to two pet bazaars, killing at least 91 people in the deadliest day since Washington flooded the capital with extra troops last spring.

Brig. Gen. Qassim al-Moussawi, Iraq’s chief military spokesman in Baghdad, said the women had Down syndrome and may not have known they were on suicide missions, but gave no further details on how authorities pieced together the evidence. He also said the bombs were detonated by remote control.

Oh… and then there’s the continuing irony of Muslims who get angry at westerners who say they are angry, as the Bishop of Rochester in the UK is now reported to be under police protection because he’s received threats on his life and that of his family after writing an article saying there were Muslim “no-go” areas beginning to form in Britain. I guess their are Muslim no-go areas when it comes to speech as well. Watch out, they may send some Mujahideen after you… or some poor innocent person with a disability.

Dr Nazir-Ali was in India when staff at his home in Rochester took a number of phone calls threatening his family and warning him that he would not “live long” if he continued to criticise Islam. He has been given an emergency number at Kent Police, along with other undisclosed protection measures, and said that the threats were being taken “seriously”.

Speaking to The Times, Dr Nazir-Ali, who is on the conservative evangelical wing of the Church and is Britain’s only Asian bishop, said: “The irony is that I had similar threats when I was a bishop in Pakistan, but I never thought I would have them here. My point in saying what I did was that Britain had lost its Christian vision, which would have provided the resources to offer hospitality to others.”
