Just moozlums being moozlums. Murdering people seems second nature to all of them. Clown Prince nobama wants them to be your neighbor.
Religion of Pieces
Won’t it be fun when we have this happening in the US on a regular basis?
Too bad it was not one of those B-61s.
Shia vs Sunni vs Kurds...
If the NYT reports it then it just must have been some chef at the party who accidentally cut his finger. You know how the NYT likes to exaggerate things.
Maybe I’m just dumb. But I don’t recall Kurds being suicide bombers like this. Feel free to correct me if I’m mistaken.
I think they would to kill moslem Turks. But I haven’t heard anything to prove that.
Just another day in the islamic paradise. Obama won’t rest until this type of mass atrocity begins to regularly occur on US soil.
islam taught from birth will do that. Ignorant filth that they are.
>Shia vs Sunni vs Kurds...
Last I heard was that Kurds were followers of islam too. If so, they need to reform their idiocy or expire like the rest of islam.
This is the terrorist kurds which we should kill— not support. This is rank terrorism. These kurds are very bad people!!
Wasn’t there one in Afghanistan where it was a guest that inadvertently killed several others and maybe the bride?
The town where this happened is close to the Syrian border & Aleppo.
Could be a GFY from Hamas to Sultan Erdogan for making nice with Israel.
Muslim throwbacks doing the will of Satan Mohammed. It’s what they do.
Kurds typically set up a bomb, or just stage an one-person or two-person assassination (political figure, cop, etc). Now in this case, I haven’t heard who the two chief families are, or the groom. If they were connected to politics or the police...then it might make sense to blame the Kurds.
