    Danish Embassy Bombed...

    OK - why in the Danish section? Why Denmark....(! don't make me laugh, you can't be serious....)

    Looks to me as though Pakistan is becoming eyes: a failed state....


    Suicide bomber kills eight at Danish embassy in Pakistan

    Telegraph 11:31AM BST 02/06/2008

    A suicide bomb attack on the Danish embassy in the Pakistani capital, Islamabad, killed eight people today.

    A rescue worker calls for a stretcher to remove the body of a victim from the site of a bomb explosion at the Danish Embassy in Islamabad

    The bomber detonated explosives in a car in the middle of a narrow road outside the embassy's main gate about 1pm local time. About 30 people were injured in the attack, several of them seriously.

    "It was a suicide attack carried out in a vehicle, apparently targeting the Denmark embassy," said senior security official.

    Early reports suggested that all those killed and injured were Pakistanis.


    At least four of the dead were policemen and guards from private security companies stationed outside the embassy's perimeter wall.

    "Eight people have been killed, there are no foreigners among them," said a security official at the scene.

    The blast, which was accompanied by a large explosion that blew out windows of houses and offices several hundred yards away destroyed a 20-foot section of embassy wall and the guard house.

    The bomb exploded where other diplomatic missions and diplomats houses are located. It destroyed the neighbouring office of a non-government organisation and left a crater about three feet deep on the road outside the mission.

    The embassy has been on a high security alert since Danish newspapers infuriated Muslims around the world when they published cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed in late 2005.

    The cartoons, considered blasphemous by Muslims, sparked deadly protests in 2006 that included attacks on Danish missions.

    The attack was the first in Islamabad since a bomb blast at an Italian restaurant frequented by foreigners on March 15 killed a Turkish woman and wounded 10 foreigners, including four staff from the US Federal Bureau of Investigation.

    Pakistan has experienced a lull in suicide attacks since a new government came to power in March and began peace talks with Taliban militants based in Pakistan's tribal region bordering Afghanistan.

    (( surrendering control ....???))

    Per Stig Moeller, Denmark’s foreign minister, said the attack was an attempt to ruin Pakistan's relations with the West.

    "I of course condemn this attack. It is terrible that terrorists commit such acts," he told Danish television after calling an emergency cabinet meeting.

    "The aim is simply to ruin Pakistanis' relations with countries like Denmark."

    The Danish intelligence service PET has repeatedly warned that the republication of the cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed had increased the threat of attacks in Denmark and against Danes abroad.

    ------------------------


    Interesting, PET - so what should happen - cease the provocation? accept the changes....reject the changes....? go back to the old ways.....embrace the neweyes:

    In other words, a few nutjob Muslims get angry about something stupid and kill a bunch of Muslim bystanders who had nothing to do with what they were angry about. This scenario seems to play out fairly often. I'd bet that statistically most of the people killed in terrorist attacks are Muslim.

    Well its not unknown for muslim terrorists to kill other muslims! It even happened in the London bombings -- I mean , how could they miss anyway??

    As it is - the bomb got so close to the Embassy building, which was severely damaged, because the bomb-car had CD diplomatic plates . Such is the security. I think the Embassy had reduced staff anyway -- was it not functioning because of all the trouble? The cartoons have been reprinted recently I believe -- and "Al Quaeda" (--whatever that means in the context of Pakistan eyes has recently called for action against the Danes. Pity they haven't still got some Vikings handy.....

    Regardless if Pakis were the only ones killed in the blast the main motive for the bombing was to kill/hurt Danes. This should be a wake-up call for the Scandinavian countries to start rethinking if their middle-eastern immigrants are really asylum seekers or silent threats.

    Silent ? !

    What's silent about DEMANDING mosques, DEMANDING that Muslim girls be allowed to wear veils to school classes, DEMANDING that Norwegian students study more about Pakistan ? If this is silent, what'll they do when they become audible ?

    Murder, assassinate, kill at random, blow up buses and trains....shall I go on ....eyes:

    Not all muslims are like this. The Sufis are quite peaceful ; and I've nothing against muslims in general in their own countries...otherwise, they don't seem to fit in too well.
