Yet again, the capricious & unknowable...

..."Will of Allah"...

-- MAZAR-I-SHARIF, Afghanistan -- Stirred up by a trio of angry mullahs who urged them to avenge the burning of a Koran at Florida church, thousands of protesters overran the compound of the United Nations in this northern Afghan city, killing at least 12 people, Afghan and United Nations officials said.

Unable to find Americans on whom to vent their anger, the mob turned instead on the next-best symbol of Western intrusion — the nearby United Nations headquarters. “Some of our colleagues were just hunted down.”

Early reports, later denied by Afghan officials, said at least two of the dead had been beheaded.

Since Afghan is 99.5% Muslim, I'll be waiting to hear how the peaceful Muslims explain away this barbaric murder as not being linked to Muslims or islam.
They poured out of a Mosque after those peaceful prayers on friday,yet CAIR-canada and CAIR-USA insist that Mosques teach about peace and love and don't incite Jihad or create followers predisposed to suffer from SJS(Sudden jihad Syndrome).

well... this is the point where the lunatic left usually starts screaming about the ira.

fwiw... afghanistan is also the place where the raw ingredient for the lions share of the world's heroin comes from... but the religion of peace seems to be fine with that.

go figure.

Uh, CTV... the U.S. Supreme Court already ruled on this one - in the "Westboro Baptist" case.

uh... hang on a sec.

next time you kill & behead someone, try telling the judge that you were driven insane by some event that happened halfway around the world.

and we'll see you in, i dunno... 20 to life?

thank you, lisa laflamme.
