Suspected Islamist militants have launched a bomb and gun attack on a mosque in Egypt's North Sinai province, killing nearly 200 people, Egyptian state media has said. The death toll is still rising.

Witnesses say the al-Rawda mosque in the town of Bir al-Abed, roughly 40km west of the provincial capital of El-Arish, was targeted during Friday prayers.

Local police said men in four off-road vehicles opened fire on worshippers. In a region with a long and horrific history of terrorist slaughter, this counts as one of the worst. Only the butchery of the Algerian civil war in the 1990s is comparable.

Why do some people still continue to insist there's nothing wrong with Islam why.

Imagine the hatred ingrained by those who committed this atrocity.
Absolutely horrific.

Probably the wrong kind of Sunni. The Sunni-Shia divide isn't a big thing in Egypt - probably because there aren't many Shiites there.

The ugly and brutal face of sectarian hatred.

You’d really wonder about humans sometimes. I was reading the reports of the attorcities linked to Ratko Mladic yesterday and you’d really just have to wonder sometimes.

As a species we’re savages at times.

On the one hand we’ve pushed technology to the point that we’ve robots on Mars. Amazing art and cultural achievements but at the snap of a finger we seem to be capable of reverting to savage behavior. It’s not unique to any culture or country either. They all have their horror stories.

There’s as much or more chance that we will wipe ourselves out as a species long before we ever get to some utopian figure like we tend to look forward to in a lot of science fiction.

He says, in a thread about people who were murdered because they were Muslim...
It's a thread about mass murder in which the murderers were almost certainly Muslim.

It's not sectarian to acknowledge that this is a problem in some forms of Islam.

If a bunch of Protestants murdered a bunch of Catholics I guarantee you wouldn't be on here talking about "a problem in Christianity".


Have a bit of respect for the people who have just been murdered by not lumping them in with the same group as the people who murdered them.
