“These Holy Warriors, reportedly operating in the name of Jesus…”

Who says Muslims don’t do irony? A rather pithy post from MPAC on the bomb left by ‘Catholic terrorists’ in Newry… It’s a slightly round peg jammed in a square hole, but the line “…representative of the beliefs of many millions of Catholics around the world” gives a sense of some frustration about the reporting of “Islamist terrorism” as though it and the whole religion was coterminous.
