Female bomber kills 45 at food center in Pakistan
Yahoo! News/ Associated Press ^ | December 25, 2010 | Anwarullah Khan

Posted on 12/25/2010 1:00:56 PM PST by Charles Henrickson

KHAR, Pakistan – A burqa-clad female suicide bomber in Pakistan lobbed hand grenades, then detonated her explosive belt among a crowd at an aid center Saturday, killing at least 45 people in militants' latest strike against the authorities' control over the key tribal region bordering Afghanistan.

Police believed it was the first time Islamic militants have sent a woman to carry out a suicide attack in Pakistan, where the U.S.-led war in Afghanistan against al-Qaida and the Taliban insurgents continues to spill over despite Islamabad's repeated claims of victory on its side of the porous border.

The bomber, dressed in the head-to-toe burqa robes that women commonly wear Pakistan and Afghanistan, was challenged by police at a check point, officials said.

She then charged toward a group of 300 people lined up outside the food aid distribution center in the town of Khar, tossing two hand grenades before blowing herself up. . . .

This article seems to imply that this burqa-wearing suicide bomber was--hold on--a Muslim. But there must be some sort of mistake. Islam is the Religion of Peace®, isn't it?

Horrible. And her victims were probably all Muslims, too. WHen are these people going to wake up to the fact that their own religion is a death cult?

Apparently, the TSA procedure of allowing these burqa clad zombies to ‘pat themselves’ down has not made it to Pakistan, otherwise this would have been prevented. /s

“Police believed it was the first time Islamic militants have sent a woman to carry out a suicide attack in Pakistan.”

Odd. Usually the manly MEN of that cult sacrifice their CHILDREN, first. Maybe they made an exception, it being Christmas and all...

Was there enough intact to know for sure.. the Islamists (political Islam, Sharia law, jihad advocates) demand we accept burqas for a reason -- and it ain't peaceful.

OUTRAGE?

The fems are FOR this.

At last, women in Pakistan and other glorious countries in this part of the world are being allowed to work at previously all male jobs.

Next they will be demanding equal pay, as the guys get a couple of goats when they ‘go to meet the virgins’.

Are we sure it was a woman and not some Cross Dressing fool?

Tariq Khan and another local official, Sohail Khan, said an examination of the human remains has confirmed the bomber was a woman.

Hasan Askari Rizvi, a Lahore-based security and political analyst, said the suicide bombing appeared to be the first carried out by a woman in Pakistan.

“It is no surprise. They can use a woman, a child or whatever,” Rizvi said. “Human life is not important to them, only the objective they are pursuing” of undermining state power, he added.

Male suicide bombers often don the burqa — an Islamic dress that also covers the woman’s face — as a disguise. In 2007, officials initially claimed Pakistan’s first female suicide bomber had killed 14 people in the northwest town of Bannu but the attacker was later identified as a man. Islamic militants in Iraq have used women suicide bombers several times, since women in their all-enveloping robes are seen as able to pass more easily through security, especially since male security officers are often hesitant to search women.

It's only on display when a pro-choice woman chooses not to have an abortion.

At the moment of death they realize the paradise they were promised is really Hell.

I really hope all her victims were moslem. Their self annihilation saves us some work.

President Barack Obama condemned the bombing as "outrageous." In a statement released in Honolulu, Hawaii, where he was spending Christmas, Obama said, "Killing innocent civilians outside a World Food Program distribution point is an affront to the people of Pakistan, and to all humanity." Wow the same day. How long did it take him for Fort Hood?

Killing innocent civilians in other places, with less muslim casualties is apparently not an affront to all humanity.

Well, the secret is to treat the burqa exactly like we treat the firearm. And a burqa is harder to conceal than a firearm. ;^)

It took almost a week for the White House to comment on the shooting at the Little Rock recruiting center. They were 'saddened'. The last time they were 'outraged' was when the abortion doctor was murdered. That only took an hour or so on a Sunday. This is the World Food Program, a division of the United Nations. It demands an immediate response, unlike when our Soldiers, Sailors or Marines die.

Muslims murder hundreds of each other for every one ‘Infidel’ they kill. They kill each other without hesitation.

That is why those who think the goal of Islam is religious, to convert the world, are so wrong.

Their goal is political. It is all about power over everyone, Muslims and non-Muslims.

If by some twist of fate all the world converted to Islam, then they would just kill each other.

If there were 12 Muslims left on Earth, they would divide into groups of six and do jihad on each other until no one is left.

Death cult is right. They will fight and kill until nothing remains. Islam has no stable end goal. Nothing will appease them.

The dictates of their religion makes them perpetually at war no matter what.

“...her victims were probably all Muslims, too...”

The schism provides a great opening for the West. We should put out propaganda that our troops are there to help end intra-Moslem violence and interfaith violence. We should lift the gag order on our troops about sharing their faith.

Instead we oversaw the adopting of a Mohammedan constitution and punish our troops for explaining Christianity and giving away Bibles. When only one-side stands for a faith (they not us) it makes for a lop-sided situation. US Troops, Zabul, Afghanistan Back in the '60s the West had more influence on Afghanistan that we do today. Back in the '60s we were not ashamed of who we were.

I am betting that the full story is this. She was selected by the terrorists and raped by them to dishonor her. She was told that she had dishonored her family by being raped and was doomed to be stoned to death for her immorality. Finally, she was told that the only way she could restore her family honor was to become a martyr in jihad. Oh, and by the way, here is a bomb vest and let us show you how to use these grenades.

Islam, a religion of peace.

I hear that male Muslim suicide bombers are supposed to get 72 virgins in paradise. What do female Muslim suicide bombers get? 72 rapists? 72 hungry babies screaming simultaneously? Or do they get to be one of the 72 virgins for the guys?

No, the only time feminazis are outraged at women is when they are protesting in front of places where unborn babies are murdered.

Funny, there was no outrage from the islamists when Syria banned the burqa in some places.

I'm amazed that hasn't started to happen yet here. I guess it's taking a little time for Obama to completely neuter the safeguards GWB has put in place. Just a matter of time I guess.

Actually, the 72 virgins that martys get aren’t deceased human females. They’re houris (spirits specifically created by God for this purpose) and have the interesting property of “revirginating” after each bout without requiring surgical intervention. I’m unclear what the attraction of “popping the cherry” on an houri you’ve done a few dozen or hundred times before is supposed to be.

I’m not sure Mohammed ever stated what faithful human females were rewarded with in the afterlife. I doubt it was a big issue for him.

BTW, I believe the whole “72” bit is not from the Koran itself, but from one of the less authoritative hadiths.

That is what they should have done in 1967.

There were plans made to blow it up. In fact, some say it went as far as actually planting explosive charges all around the building.

But, they were stopped by Lib Jews. And wound up, for some inexplicable reason, giving it back to the Jordanians.

To this day, nobody knows what in the world they were thinking. They had it all and they simply gave it away to people who have a life mission killing Jews and destroying Israel.

I will never understand it?

Well I know it’s Christmas and I don’t wish to appear inflammatory but I’m, well, it’s like this: If killing is what Islam is about and it certainly excels at it what are the ‘’death cultists’’ killing each other for? I mean shouldn’t one of the ground rules of some insane,atavistic death cult be that you kill the ‘’bad guys’’,you know, the ‘’other team’’ or whatever and not each other? What’s with the killing of each other? Competition to see who gets to do the killing first? I don’t get it. Not that it matters. Saracen bastards, they’re all crazy.

A burqa-clad female suicide bomber

Uh... I have a practical question here. Usually there aren't many pieces left over after the bomb goes off. How do they know this was a female??

You could tell by DNA if the bombers bits did not get mixed up with the victims but that usually takes some time.

Inquiring minds want to know!

A women clad in head to toe robes broke away from armed police and charged toward a group while the police who challanged her stood there and watched her charge while tossing grenades along the way??

While they stood & watched the entire thing? - No sidearms?? I call BULL. Something here is not right
