| Pakistan: Muslims screaming “Allahu akbar” storm university, murder at least 20 people

|It boggles Westerners’ minds that Muslims could scream “Allahu akbar”
while committing murder, but to these attackers, their killing is a
pious act, and act of jihad, an act that pleases the god who commanded
his slaves to “kill them wherever you find them” (cf. Qur’an 2:191,
4:89, 9:5). “Taliban Attack at Bacha Khan University in Pakistan Renews Fears,” by Declan Walsh, Ihsanullah Tipu Mehsud and Ismail Khan, New York Times, January 20, 2016:
…At least four Taliban attackers stormed a university
campus in another northwestern town, gunning down at least 20 people,
most of them students and teachers….
The attack, at the Bacha Khan University in Charsadda, 20 miles from
Peshawar, began just before 9 a.m. when the militants, using winter fog
as cover, slipped through nearby fields and scaled a rear wall. Gunfire
and explosions rang out across the campus as the attackers, some
apparently teenagers themselves, rushed through classrooms and
dormitories shouting “Allahu akbar!” as they fired.
Witnesses described scenes of carnage as gunmen sprayed bullets at
students, one of whom leapt through a window while others cowered in
bathrooms. Many staff members locked themselves in their offices. But
one junior chemistry lecturer, armed with a pistol, was reported to have
returned fire; witnesses said his actions helped several students
escape before he, too, was killed….
