Taliban Uses Exploding Koran to Kill Afghan Governor in Mosque


First came the suicide bomber. There were attempts at suicide donkey. Then the Islamic terrorists began recruiting children. Finally they booby trapped the thing most precious to them.

A Koran.

Afghanistan’s National Directorate of Security (NDS) – the country’s intelligence agency – issued a report on Wednesday that said its initial investigation into the blast that killed Arsala Jamal, the governor of Logar province, showed that the perpetrators had placed the bomb in a copy of the Koran, not a microphone

Jamal was killed at the main mosque in Pul-e-Alam, the provincial capital, on Tuesday as he gave a speech to worshippers to mark the start of Eid al-Adha, the “Festival of Sacrifice.”

The NDS also released a video of a Koran with burned pages inside the mosque and said the attack showed the militants had no respect for the Islamic holy book or the religion’s houses of worship.

Oh they had respect for it. They just considered the physical Koran expendable for accomplishing the totalitarians goals within it.

And so Koran went boom.

And the award for cluelessness above and beyond the call of duty went to the honorable infidel.

“I am deeply shocked by this killing of a civilian, in a mosque, on one of the holiest days in the Muslim calendar,” Nicholas Haysom, deputy special representative for Afghanistan and acting head of UNAMA, said in a release. “Afghans deserve peace and should be able to celebrate the Eid holidays in an environment marked by friendship and brotherhood, free from violence and bloodshed.”

That wouldn’t be in the Eid spirit.

Eid is traditionally commemorated by Muslims with terrorist attacks representing the spirit of the season. Even the animals are butchered for the sake of butchering people.

Huge numbers of goats, cows and even camels will be slaughtered in Pakistani on Wednesday homes to mark the Islamic holy day of Eid al-Adha.

Thinly disguised front organisations have been gearing up to compete against each other and legitimate charities to collect as many animal skins as possible, which can then be sold on for cash.

“For us it is second only to Ramadan for our income,” says an official from the Falah-e-Insaniyat Foundation (FIF).

FIF is the charitable wing of Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD), itself the reincarnation of one of south Asia’s most dangerous militant groups, the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), a banned organisation dedicated to fighting jihad against India.

And a happy Eid to all.

    For all the journalists reporting specious Guantanamo Koran abuse stories, I hope a jihadi takes an interest in them.

  • Veracious_one

    there is no institutional distinction between Muslims who reject jihad terror and those who embrace, so jihadis move freely in Muslim circles among those who oppose them and claim to do so. In other words, there are no “Islamic supremacist” mosques and “moderate” mosques. There are just mosques, and there are both peaceful Muslims and jihadis in some of them.

    “The NDS also released a video of a Koran with burned pages inside the mosque and said the attack showed the militants had no respect for the Islamic holy book or the religion’s houses of worship.”

    More violence and mayhem from the Islam-o-phobes.

    The left has a mighty dislike toward those who disrespect the almighty Koran.
    Could this be the smoking gun…Koran that turns them against islamists?

    • A Z

      We all hope so, but the left will come up with another excuse to keep on hating their fellow countrymen and loving any terrorist.

      • Elizabeth capecod

        I was speaking wistfully. :-)
        In my heart I believe that nothing will turn the left against these cretins. They see islamists as victims…similar to the way they see violent black mobs.

          It’s worse than that. Leftists and Islamists are allies because they have the same mindset. Both believe in submission… leftists to government and Islamists to Allah. What the leftists don’t get is that if freedom is destroyed, leftist protected classes… gays and women come to mind… will be the most oppressed and liberals will now fall in the convert or be killed class.

  • Only Black Flag

    Why do you care about muslim affairs? havent you got 17 trillion dollar debt and government shutdown? OR is the govnt already running again, on another credit card ceiling raise?

    And it was microphone, no Quran

    That is pretty funny. They’re mad about the use of that book, not the bombing.
