Egyptian firemen try to put out a fire on a vehicle following a car bombing in front of a Coptic Christian Church in the Egyptian city of Alexandria, Egypt, early Saturday, Jan. 1, 2011. The car exploded in front of the church as worshipers emerged from a New Year's Mass in the Mediterranean port city early Saturday, killing at least seven people (update, currently the death toll is 21), officials said.

I believe that it was Jonathan Lord Sacks, Chief Rabbi in England, who said, aptly, a propos of other Islamic bombings: "You don't get to heaven by creating hell on earth." Motivating such demonic action is a diamond hard, arrogant and ultimately nihilistic self-righteousness, the very essence of sin.
