A mullah? Inconceivable! How could a man who has dedicated his life to understanding Islam correctly and teaching it to others properly get the crazy, Islamophobic idea that jihad had something to do with killing Infidels? How could he have misunderstood Islam so spectacularly, and in such an utterly unprecedented way? John Kerry and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops should team up forthwith and send an Expert on Islam (say, some learned non-Muslim State Department wonk, or an Eastern Catholic bishop who speaks Arabic and can thus communicate with this poor, benighted mullah, who almost certainly knows Arabic in addition to his native language) over to Kabul to teach this imam the true, peaceful nature of Islam. This misunderstanding can be easily cleared up as soon as the two of them sit down together and open up the Qur’an, and breathe in its soothing words of peace.
American Lisa Akbari believed to have been killed by mullah with terrorist ties
A U.S. Army veteran and aid worker was shot to death in Kabul, Afghanistan, Sunday night allegedly by a mullah.
NBC News reported that Lisa Akbari, a former research manager for the U.S. Army, was shot and killed in her apartment complex. The U.S. Embassy confirmed Akbari’s death Monday.
Akbari was shot dead when leaving the gym in her apartment building, according to CNN, and a Kabul district police chief said that a mullah allegedly carried out the attack.
Fraidoon Obaidi, the police chief, said that the mullah was arrested and being questioned. He was reportedly detained less than three miles from the scene of the attack and sustained injuries during his arrest.
Obaidi further stated that investigators found documents in the unnamed suspect’s home that indicate he has links to terrorist groups.
Obaidi did not specify to which groups the mullah appears to be linked.
Akbari, a dual U.S.-Afghan citizen, worked for the U.S. Army for four years ending in 2013 and later became an aid worker for World Vision and other aid agencies in Afghanistan. She had been living in Kabul for three years.
According to the Afghan TOLO News agency, the mullah lived in the same apartment complex as Akbari.
Akbari’s death came hours before a suicide car bombing killed six U.S. soldiers and wounded three others near Bagram Airfield in the deadliest attack on foreign troops since August. Two of those wounded were American troops and the other an interpreter.
