At last count, according to the Associated Press, more than 330 bodies were pulled from the rubble of the school in Beslan. One hundred fifty-six of the dead were children.

All I can think of is God’s cry of horror to the Israelites in Jeremiah 32:35:

And they built the high places of the Ba’al, which are in the valley of Ben-hinnom, to cause their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire to Molekh; which I did not command them, nor did it come into my mind that they should do this abomination ...

(Emphasis mine.)

Read Imshin. Read Meryl. Read Charles at Little Green Footballs. They’re all right on target; I’d just be repeating them at this point.

The prophet Jeremiah could not have been more explicit in his denunciation of child sacrifice.

So after this I do not want to hear, ever again, how much Islam respects the prophets who came before Mohammed.
