Quote:A Pakistani official says the death toll from twin bombings at a crowded market at northwestern town of Parachinar has risen to 67, bringing the overall death toll from three separate attacks to 85.
Shahid Khan, a government official in Parachinar, said Saturday that many of the victims of the Friday attacks are in critical condition and feared death toll may further increases.
Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, a sectarian Sunni extremist group, claimed the bombings in Parachinar, a majority-Shiite town.
Attacks like this point to one of the most puzzling, and troubling, aspects of the Islamic subject. Even with these radical groups killing other Muslims, the Muslims that are getting killed will still not report radicals, still believe suicide bombings are justified, support Sharia and don't see the need for reform in their religion.
What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice
