We’ve long noted here at Jihad Watch the propensity for Muslims to increase jihad attacks, not to mention murder and mayhem in general, during the ‘holy’ month of Ramadan, AKA ‘Bombadan‘. So when it’s a Friday, during Ramadan, and you’re in a mosque in
Pakistan Muslim-occupied India, the chances of being struck by a mujahid — not a right-wing Christian, not an ‘Islamophobe’ — approach 100%. “At least 30 killed as suicide attacker hits Pakistan mosque”, MSNBC, 19 August 2011:
PESHAWAR, Pakistan “” At least 30 people were killed and scores of others wounded Friday in a suicide bombing at a mosque in northwest Pakistan, a senior government
official told NBC News.
The official told NBC that a teenage attacker blew himself up inside
the main hall of the mosque moments after worshippers [sic] had finished their
The Associated Press, citing a local government official, reported that the death toll could be as high as 40.
Some 300 people were at the mosque for Friday prayers during the holy
month of Ramadan when the bomb exploded in Ghundi village of Khyber
Hotbed of Islamist activity
Pakistan’s tribal belt is a hotbed of Islamist militant activity, as well as sectarian rivalry.
Khyber also is a key region for the U.S. and NATO, because a large
portion of non-lethal supplies heading to U.S. forces in Afghanistan
must cross through the region.
The attack came following a period of relative calm in the country,
which has suffered numerous Taliban and other attacks in recent years.
No group claimed responsibility for the bombing, but the Taliban and
other insurgents have attacked scores of targets in the area, which lies
along the Afghan border.
A bombed out mosque and yet another pile of bodies. This is what passes for normal in many lands cursed by the votaries of Islam and those who follow Islam. The fact that this attack will almost certainly be little remarked upon, let alone condemned, by few if any Muslims outside of the immediate vicinity of the shattered mosque, should be considered as yet another damning indictment of the so-called “Religion of Peace“.
