#2 It would be interesting to see what kind of land or marriage dispute was involved.

#3 They were involved in a land dispute, with Moose Limbs of course. They were accused of writing a pamphlet critical of the Profit and conveniently signing their names to it.

#4 The only way Christians will ever get by when they live in a country with a lot of Muslims, is to do like the Hindus do, or preferably like the Sikhs do. Tit for tat revenge, from individually to a religious riot.

However, the "Untouchables" 'Chicago Way' is more effective. That is, when attacked, escalate. This is more how Israel at least used to do it. If the Muslims kill an Israeli, the Israelis would kill 10 Palestinians. And the Israelis showed the good taste to kill 10 war makers, not just a random herd of women and children.

You'll never be friends with Muslims, which of course was never to be in the first place. But you will keep them from exterminating you.

Even the Ottomans did this with restive Arabs. Whenever they would cut up rough, or be in open revolt, the Turks would send in a punitive expedition, and much like what Saddam did to the Kurds, slaughter a few thousand of them. This would settle them down for a generation.

#5 There was no mention of the cops arresting anybody for the shooting so I take it the death penalty for blasphemy has already been meted out without the inconvenience or expense of a trial. I guess that's just the way they roll in Pakistan.

#6 Maybe they need their own Crossfire Gazette.

#7 Reinforcements? What, concerned about Christian Youth Car-B-Qs or that there were still Christians around?
