Taliban Terrorists Attack School
The evil cowardice of the "religion of peace" has shown itself again as an hours-long siege took place at the Army Public School and Degree College today in Peshawar.
When the siege ended early Tuesday evening, at least 141 people — 132 children plus nine school staff members — were dead. More than 100 were injured, many with gunshot wounds.
According to NBC News there were at least 10 attackers wearing police uniforms and suicide vests. They burnt a teacher in front of the students in a classroom. Let me repeat that. “They literally set the teacher on fire with gasoline and made the kids watch.”
The Principal of the school was also burned alive. Her crime? She was the wife of an Army Officer.
Terrorists seen to love the soft targets, whether it is a school full of children, a mall full of shoppers, or a busy café.
Sometimes a crime is so horrifying you are at a loss of what to say. Sending love and prayers to the those who are the victims of this horrendous tragedy.
O GOD of mercy, bless all who live in the face of acts of terrorism. Grant them courage to go about their daily living. Give them hope that one day the hostility will cease. Guard the defenseless, especially the children and the elderly, the infirm and the weak. Bring peace to their homes and faith into their hearts. Amen.
