Taliban Suicide Bomber Kills 14 Afghan Children Near School


The Taliban, just the other day, vowed to kill all Afghan girls who attended schools beginning in January and apparently, a signal was to be sent today that these murdering coward Taliban that they have no qualms in murdering innocent little boys and girls. A suicide car bomber set off his bomb near a school in eastern Khost province killing 14 school children as well as six others Afghans. Here's some of the details from AFP:


Fourteen children were among 20 Afghans killed in new extremist attacks in insurgency-hit Afghanistan that also left two Canadian soldiers dead, security officials said Sunday.
The children and two adults died in a powerful suicide car bombing in the eastern province of Khost, said the NATO-led force, which has troops across the country to fight the insurgents

The blast was near a school where pupils were receiving their exam results and end-of-year education certificates, police said.
District governor Dawlat Khan Qayomi said his information was that 12 children and two soldiers -- one with the national army and another with a pro-government militia -- were killed.
"The blast was so powerful that some of the casualties were turned into pieces," said Qayomi, who had been hosting the meeting with tribal elders.

Besides the maniacal evil that is behind this type of attack by the Taliban, we have to remember that the Taliban are deadset against any muslim girl receiving an education and at the same time, when the Taliban were in power in Afghanistan years ago, they saw to the closing or destruction of hundreds of schools. It was all part of the dumbing down of the society. You know, if people are dumb enough, they actually will believe in the lunacy.

So, today as the MSM and the world's leaders call out Israel for defending itself, there has not been a single instance of outcry over this attack on 14 innocent school children. Apparently a Hamas jihadist's life is worth more to Reuters and AP than an 8 year old Afghan child.


Fourteen children among 22 killed in Afghan attacks

KHOST, Afghanistan (AFP) — Fourteen children were among 20 Afghans killed in new extremist attacks in insurgency-hit Afghanistan that also left two Canadian soldiers dead, security officials said Sunday.
The children and two adults died in a powerful suicide car bombing in the eastern province of Khost, said the NATO-led force, which has troops across the country to fight the insurgents.
The attacker blew up a bomb-filled car outside local government offices in the district of Ismail Khail, also known as Mando Zayi, as local leaders were discussing security and elections due next year, police said.
"In the process he killed 16 Afghans and wounded 58 others," NATO's International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) said in a statement.
"Fourteen children were amongst those killed, and one was an Afghan National Army soldier."
The blast was near a school where pupils were receiving their exam results and end-of-year education certificates, police said.
District governor Dawlat Khan Qayomi said his information was that 12 children and two soldiers -- one with the national army and another with a pro-government militia -- were killed.
"The blast was so powerful that some of the casualties were turned into pieces," said Qayomi, who had been hosting the meeting with tribal elders.
He blamed the attack on Taliban insurgents who have been behind a wave of suicide bombings in Afghanistan.
Provincial health director Amir Badsha Rahmatzai said 50 wounded were in the public hospital. "Thirteen of them are children, 12 are government soldiers and three are in critical condition," he said.
One of the other wounded taken to an ISAF hospital had died, he said.
The blast was condemned by President Hamid Karzai and the United Nations.
It showed that the "enemies of Afghanistan" are "not aware of the Islamic teachings which outlaw the killing of innocent people," Karzai said.
It was not clear who was responsible for the attack, but militants from the Taliban, who were in government between 1996 and 2001, have carried out scores of similar suicide bombings as part of an insurgency against Karzai's government.
In another blast on Sunday, a remote-controlled bomb exploded outside a music shop in the southern town of Tirin Kot, killing one person and wounding two, police said. The austere Taliban regime had outlawed non-religious music.

Listen to the outrage of the world at these attacks on school children, the outpouring of International disgust, the screams of demands for the taliban to desist. But because no Israeli was involved in the attack it's all good. When it comes to the taliban, we should take no prisoners, there is no information that they could have that would justify their taking one more breath.

The 'religion of peace' strikes again. These rabid taliban dogs are nothing but filth. Consider how hate-filled and evil you would have to be to delight in the murder of children.

When will the world understand that islam is not a religion but a violent ideology bent on murdering their way to world domination in order subjugate any who stand in their way. They are beyond despicable.
