Muslims Kill 54 Muslims At Afghan Mosque

From those tireless defenders of the faith at the Associated Press:

54 killed in rare attacks on Afghan Shiites

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — A suicide bomber struck a crowd of Shiite worshippers at a mosque in Kabul on Tuesday, killing at least 54 people in the deadliest of two attacks on a Shiite holy day — the first major sectarian assaults since the fall of the Taliban a decade ago.

Somehow we doubt that these are the first sectarian attacks in Afghanistan in a decade.

Four other Shiites were killed in the northern city of Mazar-i-Sharif when a bomb strapped to a bicycle exploded as a convoy of Afghan Shiites was driving down the road, shouting slogans for the festival known as Ashoura.

Naturally, these Muslims killed their fellow Muslims while they were celebrating a special holiday. In fact, it is practically part of the Muslim holiday tradition.

By the way, Ashoura (Ashura) is a holiday that is celebrated by both Shia and Sunni Muslims.

Health Ministry spokesman Sakhi Kargar gave the death toll and said 21 people also were wounded in that attack.

The Kabul bomber blew himself up in the midst of a crowd of men, women and children gathered outside the Abul Fazl shrine to commemorate the seventh century death of the Prophet Muhammad’s grandson Imam Hussein. Some men were beating themselves in mourning and food was being distributed.

If only they would just stick to beating themselves.

The shrine, which is near the presidential palace, was packed with worshippers and dozens more were crammed into the courtyard. One witness said the bomber was at the end of a line and detonated his explosives near one of the gates to the shrine.

Sayed Kabir Amiri, who is in charge of Kabul hospitals said 54 were killed and more than 160 wounded in the blast. He said casualties were taken to several hospitals and the toll could rise…

The Taliban strongly condemned the two attacks and said in a statement to news organizations that they deeply regretted that innocent Afghans were killed and wounded

The Taliban hate to see innocent blood spilled. This is the same Taliban that likes to blow up school girls.

    Gee, how many Qurans were incinerated in this blast. I surely expect to see massive rioting over the “desecration” of those Qurans, just like the muslims did when false reports of toilet flushed Qurans were parroted by the libtard media. But am not holding my breath.

    Somali police arrested an muslim terrorist with a car bomb.
    They trusted the terrorist to go back to his car and dissemble the bomb,
    but of course the terrorist pushed the button and detonated it ;
    killing 4 including 1 policeman. Not sure number injured. Fox reported this while BBC’s reporting was vague.

    Just have to disagree the decision to send U.S. Military foot soldiers to train African police and soldiers are a good idea. First they should master digging wells which may take another century.

      The BBC is enormously biased. If there is a crime by a Pakistani Muslim they will say “Asian youth” or another useless term.
