Blast Kills 15 Pakistani Police Recruits
Not to worry: suicide bombers are completely un-Islamic! The practice has nothing to do with Islam at all. What are you, some kind of Islamophobe?
Fareed Zakaria, son of an Islamic cleric on CNN, has just asked us (again) why we can’t just “live with terror”, Â or rather get used to it… Just look away and everything will be just fine!
Amr Moussa, secretary general of the Arab League, is “not worried about the Egyptian brain drain”- but welcomes it: many young educated Egyptian Muslims will bring the light of Islam into the world, what could be more important than that!

PESHAWAR, Pakistan â€” A suicide bomber blew himself up on Sunday at a central police station in the largest town in theÂ Swat Valley, killing 15 police recruits and shattering the semblance of normality that the army had tried to enforce in the troubled area.
A group of new police officers, recently hired to patrol local communities, was performing training exercises when the suicide bomber struck at the police station in Mingora, the information minister for the North-West Frontier Province, Mian Iftikhar Hussain, said.
The attack came as the Pakistani Army has asserted that itÂ now controls most of the Swat Valley and that theÂ Taliban militants who held sway there for nearly two years had been beaten back to only a few enclaves.
The bomber disguised himself as a police recruit and walked into the compound, which is surrounded by high walls, officials said. Â More from the NYT
