RIP: Benazir Bhutto 1953-2007
Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto is dead. So many often ask "Where are the moderate Muslims? Why aren't they standing up to the extremists?" Bhutto and her millions of followers stood up to extremists and dictators every day. Even in the face of death threats, house arrests, and assassination attempts, they continued to stand. Thursday in Pakistan, Bhutto and at least 20 of her followers died the death of martyrs, murdered by a man who fancied himself a blessed martyr but went to Allah the cursed killer of martyrs. Those who loved and respected her fight on even now. Salam Alekem, Prime Minister, and thank you.
