How Come This Doesn't Happen Here in Jerusalem?

Over the past decade, Arabs, or more properly Muslims, have been fighting each other (okay, they've been doing that since the early 7th century).

Not only fighting but one of the most favored actions is planting bombs, or suicide-carried bombs, in mosques of all places.

For example, see:

30 killed, 100 injured in Jamrud mosque explosion

JAMRUD: At least 30 people have been killed as a result of a blast targeting a mosque located in the Jamrud Tehsil of the Khyber Agency Friday while more than 100 are injured, Geo News reported. The roof of the mosque collapsed following the blast.

Somalia mosque explosions kill 30

Two explosions at mosques in Somalia's capital Mogadishu have killed at least 30 people and wounded scores, witnesses said.

It was the second attack in a week on a mosque in Bakara Market – an area of Mogadishu dominated by members of the country's two main insurgent groups, Hizbul Islam and al Qaeda-linked al Shabaab.  Saturday's attack was in the Abdalla Shideye mosque which is often used by al Shabaab officials to deliver speeches.  It is not far from the Abu Hureya mosque where a landmine killed one person on Tuesday.

"Many screaming people were piled up on each other, some dead, some injured," said a witness who asked not to be identified.

"There were more than 30 dead," he said, estimating that over 100 people were injured. Al Shabaab armed men arrived and surrounded the mosque," he added. 

It was not clear who was behind the mosque blasts, although residents suspected they could be the result of in-fighting between the insurgent groups, which are both trying to topple the Western-backed government

71 killed in Pakistan mosque explosions

Around 3,800 killed in suicide attacks and bombings in three years

Two explosions killed at least 71 people in mosques in Pakistan's northwest on Friday, officials said, after a relative lull in militant violence. In one attack, a suicide bomber blew himself up as Friday prayers were ending, killing at least 66 people, provincial government officials said. The attack occurred in Darra Adam Khel, a suburb of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province capital Peshawar.

So how come none of that happens here?
