A few thoughts:

They began throwing hand-grenades and firing machine-guns everywhere. Then, two suicide bombers blew themselves up in middle of the praying Muslims, which included men, women and children, not to mention Qurans and other Muslim religious artifacts.
From news article:
Nasir Ali Sheikh saw the attackers at the mosque as he walked there to pray. He said they were dressed in traditional Pakistani clothing of loose pants and a long tunic and carried hand grenades, automatic weapons and ammunition belts slung around their shoulders.
"They were killing people like animals," he said. "I couldn't understand what was happening."
The mosque's walls and prayer mats were covered in blood and shattered glass lined the floor, TV footage showed.
So far, at least 36 were mass-murdered and God only knows how many wounded and how many more will die from their wounds.
In general, I return to the point I've made many times before, we need to learn from the actions of the Muslims. Islam itself is not really a religion in the same sense as we view religion in the West. Instead, its religious institutions are often used as weapons storage facilities, firing positions, and of course terrorism recruiting centers. That's why their fellow Muslims feel free to burst into prayers and machine-gun and bomb all in sight.
This is the same thing we see as Hamas mass murders other terrorists in mosques, and Pakistan, Iran, Egypt, India, etc., all report incidents of Muslims mass-murdering their fellow Muslims in the mosques. We ourselves should not view these institutions in the same way we view churches and temples, etc. It's important to follow the lesson learned form the Muslims themselves.
Second, notice that the Muslims consider the lives of their own people to be worthless. The more they kill, the happier they believe Allah to be. That's why those who mass-murder worshippers are viewed as brave "shahids," or holy warriors.
Third, by this evening, the whole incident will be long-forgotten in the Muslim world, and they will return to only discuss how evil America and Israel are. This type of massacre, even in a mosque, is just business as usual in the Muslim world. Nothing to get too excited about, nothing to even fill the airways of the Muslim TV stations, or the pages of the Muslim newspapers. Only the evil "Ameriqiya" and "al Yaud" will make it to the front pages.
On the other hand, if a cartoon of the great Muhammed is published, well, then... The entire Muslim world will riot for months on end.
It's important to out these things in perspective...
