Let me see, here ...

Sunni Muslim gunment killed 80 people in two mosques in Lahore, Pakistan, yesterday, apparently because the gunmen believe that the Ahmadi believers are not real Muslims. How can they be sure?  Apparently, the Ahmadis cannot be real Muslims because they do not kill other Muslims with whom they have disagreements.  And we non-Muslims are supposed to understand that authentic Muslims can engage in this murderous behavior, and it is somehow all right with Allah?  I don't begin to understand.

We Americans then, through our government topped by our Christian Prez, then fire a drone-bomb that kills eight in western Pakistan. I don't begin to understand that.

We humans are told by various philosophers to accept the world - accept what we cannot change - and I don't begin to understand that, either.
