    Sri Lanka terror attack; over 200 dead

    "More than 200 people were killed and hundreds more hospitalized from injuries after a series of blasts devastated three churches and three luxury hotels in Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday.

    "The targets were Catholic worshippers attending Easter Mass and guests at high-end hotels popular with foreign tourists."

    More from the religion of peace? My Christ richly welcome our martyred brothers and sisters into His Kingdom...

    Not sure who is to blame yet but the government issued warnings about a week ago due to threats from a radical Islamist group, National Thowheeth Jama’ath.

    How about we wait for proof? I know that is hard for some who would rather blame but...

    It's not stupid to wait for evidence in this of all countries, considering Sri Lanka has an extensive history of Hindu terrorism.

    Are Hindu terrorists known for wearing suicide vests?

    Source: Sri Lanka Bomber Stood at Hotel Buffet then Unleashed Terror

    Colombo (AFP) — The suicide bomber waited patiently in a queue for the Easter Sunday breakfast buffet at Sri Lanka’s Cinnamon Grand hotel before setting off explosives strapped to his back.

    Carrying a plate, the man, who had registered at the hotel the night before as Mohamed Azzam Mohamed, was just about to be served when he set off his devastating strike in the packed restaurant, a manager at the Sri Lankan hotel said.

    It is possible, of course, that the perpetrator registered under a false name.

    Hindu terrorism? I thought the eastern religions were supposed to be peaceful.
    If it weren't for the Resurrection of Jesus, we'd all be in DEEP TROUBLE!

    Hindus do their share of religious persecution.

    This looks more like Islam, though.
