Suicide bomber targets worshipers outside Afghan mosque, kills 40

By Masoud Popalzai, CNN

(CNN) - A suicide bomber blew himself up outside a mosque following morning prayers in Afghanistan's northern Faryab province, killing at least 40 people, according to Lal Mohammad Ahmadzai, a spokesman for the northern Afghanistan police chief.

More than 50 people were wounded in the blast that occurred as worshipers finished prayers to mark the start of the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha, said Ministry of Interior spokesman Sediq Seddiqi.

    Just more evidence of the following:

    WHAT INSTIGATED THE ATTACK ON THE TWIN TOWERS AND THE PENTAGON?

    AND WHAT DRIVES TODAY'S 24/7 MOSQUE/IMAM-PLANNED ACTS OF TERROR AND HORROR?

    THE KORAN, MOHAMMED'S BOOK OF DEATH FOR ALL INFIDELS AND MUSLIM DOMINATION OF THE WORLD BY ANY MEANS.

    MUSLIMS MUST CLEAN UP THIS BOOK REMOVING SAID PASSAGES ADMITTING THAT THEY ARE BASED ON THE GABRIEL MYTH AND THEREFORE OBVIOUSLY THE HALLUCINATIONS AND/OR LIES OF MOHAMMED.

    THEN WE CAN TALK ABOUT THE SAFETY AND LOCATION OF MOSQUES AND WHAT IS TAUGHT THEREIN.

    UNTIL THEN, NO MUSLIM CAN BE TRUSTED ANYTIME OR ANYWHERE..................................

    This is what we're not only letting, we're INVITING into our beautiful, historical countries. Mudslimes are completely incapable of living in civilized society, and they have proven it time and time again. THEY DO NOT BELONG HERE OR IN EUROPE!

      The facts that:

      #1. There's never been a first world muslim nation. They have no capability to actually build a successful nation, and

      #2. When they move to someone else's nation, they can't be bothered to follow the laws and traditions of said nations. Instead, they enforce Sharia law whenever and wherever they can get away with it, or at least think they can.

      I'm sorry, "Atheism is not healthy for children and other living things", but your assertions regarding atheism and prayer are unfounded. Using my Idiomatic Expression Equivalency module, the expression that best matches the degree to which your assertions may represent truths is: "TOTAL FAIL".

      I see that you repeat these unfounded statements with high frequency. Perhaps the following book can help you:

      Prayer does not; you are such a LIAR. You have NO proof it changes anything! A great example of prayer proven not to work is the Christians in jail because prayer didn't work and their children died. For example: Susan Grady, who relied on prayer to heal her son. Nine-year-old Aaron Grady died and Susan Grady was arrested.
      An article in the Journal of Pediatrics examined the deaths of 172 children from families who relied upon faith healing from 1975 to 1995. They concluded that four out of five ill children, who died under the care of faith healers or being left to prayer only, would most likely have survived if they had received medical care.
      The statistical studies from the nineteenth century and the three CCU studies on prayer are quite consistent with the fact that humanity is wasting a huge amount of time on a procedure that simply doesn’t work. Nonetheless, faith in prayer is so pervasive and deeply rooted, you can be sure believers will continue to devise future studies in a desperate effort to confirm their beliefs.
