  1. as we are all abrahamic religions there is something seriously wrong with this culture of hate and violence emanating from imans modern teachings. Ask any of them who does save the world at the end of the Koran ….

  2. We repeat what Jen Psaki, Department of State Spokesperson, said: “We support Pakistan’s efforts to bring the perpetrators to justice. The United States remains concerned about continuing sectarian violence in Pakistan that has brought heartache to Sunnis, Shia, Christians, and members of other communities across the country. Extremist violence against innocent Pakistani men, women, and children of any faith is an assault on universal human values.” Our nations are working night and day to restore peace in the region. It is no secret that nation of Pakistan continues to face the wrath of terrorism. We will continue to support Pakistan in its effort to counter terrorism, and wish to see peace prevail throughout the region.
