Gunmen in Pakistan Kill Women Who Were Giving Children Polio Vaccines

21st December 2012

Read it.

 No group claimed responsibility for the attacks, but most suspicion focused on the Pakistani Taliban, which has previously blocked polio vaccinators and complained that the United States is using the program as a cover for espionage.

The killings were a serious reversal for the multibillion-dollar global polio immunization effort, which over the past quarter century has reduced the number of endemic countries from 120 to just three: Pakistan, Afghanistan and Nigeria.

What peaceful, friendly people! Wouldn’t you just love to have some for neighbors?
That’s some fine Religion o’ Peace™ you got there, Mohammed.
Of course, as we all know, the real problem is Islamophobia.

    Leaping to conclusions.
    Nothing in the article suggests that the killers were Muslims, or that they were acting for religious motives.

    And you can continue to believe that until they come to cut your head off. Not that you would miss it.

    However, I don’t suppose that anybody claims that the Taliban aren’t Muslim? And this is perfectly consistent with their activities in the past
