Once again muslim terrorists wage jihad targeting civilians.

PESHAWAR, Pakistan, Aug 19 (Reuters) – A suspected suicide bomber killed 23 people in the compound of a hospital in northwest Pakistan on Tuesday as members of a religious minority were holding a protest, police said.

Violence in northwest Pakistan is a major test for the coalition government led by the party of slain former prime minister Benazir Bhutto, especially after the resignation of former army chief Pervez Musharraf as president on Monday.

The bomb went off outside a hospital in Dera Ismail Khan, 280 km (175 miles) southwest of Islamabad, as Shi’ite Muslims were protesting against the killing of a leader. Gunmen shot the leader earlier and his body had been taken to the hospital.

North West Frontier Province police chief Naveed Malik Khan said 23 people had been killed in the blast, and up to 20 wounded. He said Sunni Muslim militants were believed responsible.

“This area has been hit by sectarian violence for many years and this is also a sectarian-related incident,” Khan said.

Most of the dead were protesters, a city official said.

Musharraf oversaw security after he threw Pakistan’s support behind the U.S.-led campaign against terrorism. His departure has raised questions about the government’s commitment, even though it has made security a priority. Continued…

    These idiots don’t care who they kill as long as they’re killing somebody.  Amazing.  I can’t believe the stupidity of muslims, but I can believe the desire to get out of the miserable life they lead.

    Islam has to be the sickest ideology ever devised. It is even more fatalistic and sicker than Nazism or Communism. And still people cling to that stupid so-called religion. 

    Their violent Qur’an, The Muslim War Manual, should suffice to alert people that Islam is rotten to the core, and still stupid Muslims adhere to its mortal passages.  Take this passage from the stupid Qur’an for example: “Be ruthless to the infidels,”(Sura 48 Verse 29).  I wish that a Muslim could tell me what the gain is by being ruthless.  That insane suicide bomber, a Muslim no less, who murdered 23 innocent people was ruthless.  He fulfilled the violent passage of The Muslim War Manual, but what did he gain besides nothing?  Islam is pure evil.  Islam is pure insanity besides being ruthless! Why don’t you Muslims come to your senses?

    There are more than 100 passages in the violent, ugly Qur’an that can blow the mind of a good person, but I’ll quote only one more: “Make war on the infidels around you,” (Sura 9 Verse 123 and Sura 66 Verse 9).  Make war? For what reason? What’s the gain in making war? Why can’t you Muslims come to your senses? Are you really insane? What you should do is flush the Qur’an down the toilet, but will you? Is it a holy book? Don’t be silly.
