Pogrom

You haven’t heard that term for a long time have you? Not something the Guardian, or the Telegraph, or even the Newspaper of Record, All the News That’s Fit to Print, The New York Times, is likely to print.

Well, it happens, so lets start calling it what it is.

Anti-Christian Pogrom In Pakistan

Six Christians burnt alive in Pakistan violence

Shahbaz Bhatti, minister for minorities, said a mob "misled by religious extremists," attacked a Christian neighborhood and torched dozens of houses.

Yeah, sure.

    You have to ask some pretty serious questions about a country which has a “Minister for Minorities”.

    I know. We have that witch Harman and I have some fairly serious questions I’d like to put to her…

    More generally though we are all in minorities. I’m called Nick. Most people aren’t. I’m 35, most people aren’t. I have a degree in astrophysics which must people don’t. Draw up your own list and you will discover you’re a minority too.

    Oh, you’ve just realised that it’s happening. Well, that’s a start, I suppose. It’s a shame, of course that the Christian world don’t also acknowledge the persecution of Christians in the muslim world. And all that aid we give the barbarians, is that protection money? If so, it’s not working.

    No, it’s not the first time I have noticed it, but I have not seen that nasty word ‘pogrom’ applied to them as yet. I just thought it was time to do so.
