ISIS Takes Hold in Pakistan

Concern over the extent of the presence and power of ISIS in Pakistan resurfaced on December 17, when a suicide-bombing at a church in Quetta left at least nine worshipers dead and more than 50 seriously wounded.

Had Pakistani security forces not responded swiftly to the attack on the Bethel Memorial Methodist Church — where 400 men, women and children were attending Sunday services – the assailants “would have managed to reach the main hall of the building, and the death toll would have been much higher,” Sarfraz Bugti, the provincial home minister of the Baluchistan province, where Quetta is located, told Gatestone Institute.

      It can be stabilized by adding more nuclear missiles to it.

      Don’t worry, Obama tried to counter this with the balancing unbalanced nuclear armed state of North Korea. As with most of Obama’s plans the end result is not perhaps what was expected.

    I’m assuming this article is old? Pakistan has been run by the same ideology as isis for decades.

      Exactly. Pakistan is the model islamic state that all others eventually evolve into.

      Yeah, I just figured no one would notice any difference anyway.

  • It’s time to let India do what it must.
