Most of the time, they tell us that “no Muslim would do a thing like that”. But when you take a closer look, it turns out that Muslims bomb mosques all the time:
Oddly enough, the perpetrators were actually Islamic jihadists. “Blast at mosque kills provincial governor in northern Afghanistan,” by Ivan Watson forÂ CNN, October 8 (thanks to JW):
Kabul, Afghanistan (CNN) — An anti-insurgent provincial governor who had survived Taliban assassination attempts was among 20 people who died Friday in an explosion at a northern Afghan mosque during prayers, a government official said.The blast in Afghanistan’s Takhar province killed Kunduz provincial governor Mohammad Omar, who recently sounded an alarm about the threat of insurgents during an interview with CNN.
The bombing also wounded 35 others, with most of those killed and injured engaged in prayer, said Afghan Interior Ministry spokesman Zamarai Bashari.
“It is a terrible incident,” said Bashari, who said police were trying to find out more details about the strike and who is responsible.
The NATO-led command condemned the attack, saying that “it’s unconscionable that anyone would attack a mosque.”
“It’s clear the insurgents have no respect for the most holy of Islamic places,” said U.S. Navy Rear Adm. Greg Smith, spokesman for NATO’s International Security Assistance Force, or ISAF. (Source)
