160 dead so far in eight attacks on churches and hotels across Sri Lanka as Christians celebrate Easter.  Seems to be very little discussion from the middle-class Twitterati and no response on P&B so far, is this a racist website?

If it's not a 1st World English speaking country then shock and "you don't expect this sort of thing to happen here" syndrome doesn't apply.  Just part of life in these places etc etc.

207 dead from the BBC update I got on my phone.

Genuine scumbag c***s killing folk because they pray to the wrong Sky fairies 

Needs more breaking news reports about the Pope and the Archbishop of Canterbury having a good old pray imo.

Is there anything to be said for saying another Mass?

Before the arrests, the local police said they suspected the local Jihadi group may behind the attacks. I'd say if you have a local Jihadi group it would be worth keeping an eye on them. We have a local Rotary Club and  rambling club.

It would also be worth having a word with them tout de suite following said bombings. You are highly unlikely to be wasting your time questioning jihadis in such a scenario.

Let's not rule out the local Scout group.

Bunch of uniformed youngsters always practising with fire, working away for things like their 'electronics' badge, buying stuff from the cash-and-carry in industrial quantities for some 'jamboree', stashing it away in some hall that never gets searched by the polis.  No matter where you are, there's always a troop nearby.

<_<

Isis have released a video of the attackers swearing allegiance to the Caliphate (such as it is) before the attack.

BBC news showed one of the bombers patting a wee kid on the head, before heading into a church to blow it up.

Chilling

I don't know why you're so relaxed about, I found it quite unsettling.

One of the alleged bombers studied in the UK and Australia.  All the bombers are well educated and middle class, according to the Sri Lankan authorities.

Surely anyone thick enough to blow up a church full of innocent people praying to one of your own prophets is the antithesis of "well educated"

In as much that well-educated people can still be manipulated or brainwashed.

Got to assume that they don't view it quite like that.

I would say that people who are well educated are able to be far more objective - nothing terror related is objective its sensationalist rubbish and crumbles at the start of scrutiny

As in the view that people who blow stuff up can be well educated or that Jesus Christ is a prophet and that attacking the church that worships him is as much an attack on islam as an attack on christianity

Aside the fact that all religion is nonsense and only in response to your simplified thoughts.

Muslims do not believe Jesus was resurrected or even crucified, in their own twisted minds may see Easter celebrations as an afront to their prophet and their beliefs.

Not an excuse for their idiotic actions, but things are a great deal more complicated and it's impossible to fathom out how, even educated people get so indoctrinated, but it happens.
