Running out of Christians? Pakistan plans to execute 500 terror convicts, officials say

Pakistan plans to execute around 500 militants in coming weeks, officials said Monday, after the government lifted a moratorium on the death penalty in terror cases following a Taliban school massacre.

Six militants have been hanged since Friday amid rising public anger over Tuesday’s slaughter in the northwestern city of Peshawar, which left 149 people dead including 133 children.

After the deadliest terror attack in Pakistani history, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif ended the six-year moratorium on the death penalty, reinstating it for terrorism-related cases.

      Even more rope will be required if leftists in the west start a twitter campaign #I’LLSWINGWITHYOU.

    How many of those Pakis can actually read those signs they’re holding? I’ve always wondered about that….

    “Here, hold these signs”
    “What do they say?”
    “Nevermind that. Just hold them until the foreign reporters are gone.”

      When I saw pictures of that on the “BBC World News” broadcast, I was thinking the very same thing.
      They are all professionally printed too.
      Did the government of Pakistan pay for that?

        When they burn American flags, it’s never ever ragged home-made flags. Someone must be making a killing at the Great Satan Flag Company.

      Remember the Walking Hillbeast’s “Reset Button”? Har.
      The sign doesn’t have to mean squat to the holder. The photograph of it is the actual “message”. You know; in that meta kinda way that these modern propagandist _rseholes love so much.
