Blast outside school in Afghanistan kills 25

By Mohammad Obaid Thu Jul 9

MOHAMMAD AGHA, Afghanistan (Reuters) – An explosion outside a school south of the Afghan capital on Thursday killed at least 25 people, including 15 students, officials said, the worst toll from a single blast in a year…

The blast happened in Logar province south of Kabul. Officials said it was caused by explosives hidden beneath a pile of firewood in the back of a truck which had crashed overnight, prompting speculation they were meant for elsewhere.

Logar police chief Ghulam Mustafa said the truck rolled into a stream between two schools. The blast went off as police checked the abandoned truck in the morning, he said.

Mustafa said the explosives were possibly being taken by Taliban insurgents to Kabul for a planned attack. He was not sure if the blast was deliberately aimed at the police in Logar as a secondary target after the truck overturned…

Reuters television pictures showed villagers digging through the rubble of destroyed shops, and a large Mercedes truck blown onto its side by the force of the blast. Twisted bicycles lay among the debris.

Nearby, relatives wept over the bodies of two children covered by white sheets under the shade of apple trees, the ground strewn with fallen fruit.

President Hamid Karzai condemned the blast as a "savage and anti-Islamic attack," the palace said in a statement

The explosion was the worst death toll from a single blast since an attack on the Indian embassy in Kabul on July 7, 2008, killed 58 people…

More of the same from those practitioners of the Religion Of Peace.

The report doesn’t mention it, but one of the schools was undoubtedly a girls’ school. They were probably waiting for the students to arrive before setting off the explosives.

(They must have run out of acid.)

President Hamid Karzai condemned the blast as a "savage and anti-Islamic attack," the palace said in a statement.

We don’t know. It sounds perfectly Islamic to us.

‘Austere’ even.

    Sort of OT, but I remember the story last year of a singing competition that emerged on television in Afghanistan under the post-Taliban government. One of the singers, a young female, began to dance lightly during her song by kicking her feet. As she danced to the music, her hijab slipped a little higher from her head and showed her dark hair. Her “dance” was not provocative but after the performance, both young and old men on the street called for her to be killed / murdered for insulting Islam. The men condemned her as a whore – for this simple performance. Her family tried to reach her after the show, believing rumors that she had been killed and her throat slashed for the offense. She didn’t die, but she received many death threats.

    So in my mind, the term savage does not quite cover the traditional Islam practiced in Afghanistan. And the suicide bombings, acid attacks on young girls are no surprise to me. When those men have nothing to live for but their anti-human, anti-female beliefs, they will die to deprive others the right to live.

    How can Obama care about health care, while buddying up with Iran, Palenstine, and commie slave countries.
