Oddly enough, it was a Sunni jihadist trying to murder Shi’ites and claim the promise of Paradise that Allah gives to those who “kill and are killed” for him (Qur’an 9:111). How odd that these Misunderstanders of Islam got the crazy idea that that meant Paradise was promised to those who kill and are killed, rather than that Paradise was guaranteed to those who hug and are hugged. “Suicide attacker kills 2 near mosque in Iran,” from Associated Press, October 19 (thanks to Maxwell):
TEHRAN, Iran (AP) “” A suicide attacker running from the police detonated his explosives near a mosque in southeastern Iran on Friday, killing two people, Iranian state media said.
State television described the incident in a volatile region near the Pakistani border as a “terrorist attack.”
It said a suspect tried to enter the Imam Hossein mosque in Chabahar port as people gathered for Friday prayers, but was stopped by security guards.
As he started to run away, he set off his explosives, killing two passers-by and wounding several people, including policemen. It was unclear if the explosives were detonated by accident.
No group claimed responsibility for the attack but the Sunni militant Jundallah group, which claims to be fighting for Sunni rights in the mainly Shiite Iran, has been involved in sporadic bombings in the region in the past.
In an obvious reference to Jundallah, lawmaker Yaqoub Jedgal blamed the explosion on “remnants of terrorist groups,” according to the semi-official ISNA news agency. Jedgal is a representative from Chabahar in the Iranian parliament….
