Well, we can't say that Islam produces anything seriously productive. It seems that it is always destructive, and that destruction is both physical and spiritual. Recently it was reported that during a recent terrorist class in Iraq a suicide bomb trainer used live explosives to teach his class and ended up detonating the belt, packed with explosives, killing himself and 21 other members of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, army and police.
I have to say, the irony in all of this is astounding. In fact, as I'm chuckling at this, it could be said that it is poetic justice.
Duraid Adnan and Tim Arango reported:
Suicide attacks make up an increasing share of the operations financed by this money stream. At a congressional hearing last week, Brett McGurk, a senior State Department official, said 50 suicide attacks occurred in Iraq in November, compared with three in November 2012. "The suicide bomber phenomenon, it is complete insanity," Mr. McGurk said.
In addition to the 22 militants who were killed, 15 others were wounded in the explosion on Monday at the militant compound, in a rural area of northeastern Salahuddin Province, according to police and army officials. Stores of other explosives, including explosives packed in at least 10 vehicles, ready for operations, were found at the camp, as well as heavy weapons, the officials said.
Eight militants were arrested when they tried to escape, the officials said. The militant commander who was conducting the training was not identified by name, but an Iraqi Army officer described him as a prolific recruiter who was "able to kill the bad guys for once."
Referring to the recruiting pitch that martyrdom is a sure ticket to heaven and the virgins that await there, the officer added, "Maybe this suicide bomber will really get to heaven as they say."
Raad Hashim, who works the counter at a liquor store, commented on a previous attack saying that "It shows how stupid they are, those dogs and sons of dogs."
He also added, "It also gives me pain, as I remember all the innocent people that were killed here."
Hashim seems to understand something the jihadists don't. He went on to say "This is God showing justice. This is God sending a message to the bad people and the criminals in the world, to tell them to stop the injustice and to bring peace. Evil will not win in the end. It's always life that wins over death."
While handing over bottle of Corona to a patron, Hashim then went on to declare in a celebratory fashion about the suicide bomb class, "What happened today was not death, but it was life to us. Those 22 who were killed today might have killed hundreds of Iraqis, hundreds of innocent souls. May they burn in hell."
Indeed, may all those who seek to murder innocent people in the name of Allah, or any other God meet the same fate. I can only wish it would come to them sooner rather than later.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter.
