And then the imam's house blew up…

Amazing stuff.  Was he a radical or a moderate Muslim?

Nine roasted when imam’s house blows up


* A month ago we had this: Imam leads mob in honor killing of women and children…

We also had a few of those: Taliban murders mullah critical of suicide operations

And now this:

From JW: “Here is a Muslim cleric’s house, also ‘used as a makeshift [Islamic] school’, which suddenly goes ka-booom, creating an enormous crater, and flattening neighbouring houses. Now – can anyone imagine a newspaper report in which ‘the rabbi’s house blew up’ or ‘the priest’s house blew up’ or ‘the guru’s house blew up’ because they were being used as an ammo dump?”In fact, yes. I can imagine such a newspaper report. So can lots of other people. And they imagine such reports all the time. They imagine them in order to reinforce the false moral equivalence they have embraced, and to avoid facing the hard facts of the doctrines of jihad and Islamic supremacism. But that’s all they are — imaginings. This one is real.

“Blast kills nine in Pakistan village,” by Sally Sara for Australia’s ABC, July 13 (thanks to Dumbledoresarmy):

At least nine people have been killed and more than 50 injured in a blast at the home of a Muslim cleric in Pakistan.Dozens of houses were flattened by the blast east of the city of Multan in Punjab province.

The house was often used as a makeshift religious school and some reports said seven children were among the dead.

The blast left a crater 12 metres wide and more than 20 nearby houses collapsed.

Witnesses say the ground shook like an earthquake.

The cause of the explosion is unknown but police found rocket launchers at the scene and suspect there may have been an ammunition dump at the cleric’s house….
