30 Killed in Stampede in Pakistan

Ever notice that every Muslim rally in the middle east ends with a stampede much like American rock concerts?

At least 30 people were killed in a stampede at the end of a religious congregation for women in the southern port city of Karachi, the police and hospital officials said Sunday. Scores of women and children were also injured.

Showing how much you love your God by using other human beings as stepping stones is a time tested tradition. It says, "God, I love you so much I am willing to snap another persons neck with my sandal". And God saw this and was pleased.

About 10,000 women had gathered at an Islamic center, Faizan-e-Madina, in the Sabzi Mandi neighborhood of Karachi, Pakistan's largest city, to mark the birthday of the Prophet Muhammad, which will be celebrated Tuesday.

Well, we all know whenever women gather in big numbers...they stampede.

Witnesses said the stampede began as the vast gathering was breaking up about 4:45 p.m. Initially, rumors that a bomb had caused the stampede raised fears of a terrorist attack, but the police quickly discounted that possibility.

Alright, I'll bite, what caused the stampede if it wasn't the threat of a bomb, free veils down at Ahmed's WalMart?

Instead, reports in the Pakistani news media said a girl had fallen, and waves of people were blocked when she was being helped.

No time for that! Crush em!!
