How creating hell on earth for the sake of Sharia is supposed to turn it into paradise under Sharia is still a puzzler. “Nigeria unrest: Suicide bomb targets church in Jos,” from BBC News, February 26 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):
A suicide car bomber has killed at least three people at a prominent church in the troubled central Nigerian city of Jos.
Witnesses said the suicide bomber rammed his car into the Church of Christ during an early morning service.
A woman was killed as he sped towards the church, and a father and child died in the resulting explosion.
No group has said it carried out the attack, but suspicion will fall on the radical Islamist sect Boko Haram.
The group has carried out a number of bloody attacks across Nigeria in its quest to overthrow the government and create an Islamic state.
The bomber drove towards the church through unmanned gates, killing a woman in the process, eyewitnesses said.
The bomber then detonated the explosives and pieces of the car tore into the church. Local officials later said the blast killed a father and his child who were worshipping inside the church at the time.
At least 38 people had to be taken to hospital for treatment, the National Emergency Management Agency said.
Christian human rights activists suspect Boko Haram of carrying out the attack, which they say is the deadliest on a church in Jos, the BBC’s Mark Lobel reports from Lagos.
