    If one man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter, then that ‘other man’ is really f***ed up.

  • Bluesboy

    Just another day in the religion of pieces.

    What the F is the matter with these animals?!?!? These are little kids!!!! Sick, these people are sick! Throwing a grenade where 5 yr old are in schools!??! How the hell does that country stand a chance with such disgusting people there! a 7th century mindset!!

    Just like when acid was thrown in those little girl’s faces because they were being educated & going to school, these people are worse than animals!

  • Just_Saying

    Courageous, to bomb a bunch of little kids.

  • Buffalobob

    It’s not like they are allowing them to play dodge ball.

  • D W Pepper

    I bet the Guy tossing the Grenade could not read.. Remember about 1/2 of ALL Muslims in the world cannot read.. Harder to control Smart People .. Islam will not have any of that Smart stuff happening to challenge it … People might start wanting to LEARN and Islam frowns on that…

  • What political/religous entity has legitimate goal of throwing a grenade into school children? There is nothing clever to say about this cowardice.

  • ar05075

    I’m sure the Human Rights Councel at the UN will get right on this.

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    “Police have arrested the gunman who committed this action.”

    The bastard should have been executed on the spot.

  • ar05075

    sorry, council

  • Rock

    Rest assure if it had been a friendly fire accident by our troops the LSM would be burning up the airways and dumping tons of ink on the story. And WTF and friends would blame Bush.

    “Police have arrested the gunman who committed this action.”

    I wonder if they will find out what mosques this murderer attended, what cleric taught him his ways. I would level that mosque, the home of the cleric[s] involved, any other places of business the cleric[s] frequented, and execute the cleric[s].

    Until we, or Afghanis, or Iraqis, or anyone else who fights these vermin, are willing to take this battle to the ideologists and show them the consequences of their use of religion to commit mass murder, there will be no conclusion to this struggle.

    Depending on the general population to understand this is absurd. It is time to make the Islamist clerics themselves face the consequences of their twisted ideology.

  • Rock

    Unfortunately WTF and company are doing everything they can to allow more of these savage throwbacks to enter the States. Using social justice as a tool.

  • valerie

    They did this kind of thing in Iraq, and one woman said “If my son dies, I will drink Zarqawi’s blood!”

    These are our enemies. Putting an end to their nonsense is a worthy thing to do. God bless the responsible parents who love their children, and who, together, insist on making a better world for them.

    The islamsists: Hamas, Hezbollah, Al-Qaeda, the Taliban, and the present government of Iran, have opened the gates of Hell-on-earth. We do not have to accept this. We can close those gates, and if we are wise enough to recognize allies where we find them, we can close them sooner. Heaven help us all.

  • Allah would be so proud… right?

  • southernsue

    they are all high on ashish or opium.

    they have no value of life.

    these children don’t have a chance, they will grow up just like the one that tried to kill them.
    the girls of this country, if they get to live, will be in servitude to the men.

    hell holes. another vietnam with obama and his ilk leading the way making our people fight with one hand behind their back.

    we lost about 60,000 of our people in vietnam and now we are trading partners with them.

    we need to stop this fighting for these cesspool countries that rape and kill their own children and live like animals.

    This freedom fighter is a very brave man and I am sure allah will reward him for maiming defenseless children!

    “Ever since the religion of Islam appeared in the world, the espousers of it…have been as wolves and tigers to all other nations, rending and tearing all that fell into their merciless paws, and grinding them with their iron teeth; that numberless cities are raised from the foundation, and only their name remaining; that many countries, which were once as the garden of God, are now a desolate wilderness; and that so many once numerous and powerful nations are vanished from the earth! Such was, and is at this day, the rage, the fury, the revenge, of these destroyers of human kind.”
    —John Wesley (1703-1791) Methodist leader

    ”[Islam] is essentially an obstructive, intolerant system. It has consecrated despotism; it has consecrated polygamy; it has consecrated slavery. It has declared war against every other creed; it has claimed to be at least dominant in every land. When it ceases to have an enemy to contend against, it sinks into sluggish stupidity and into a barbarism far viler. It must have an enemy; if cut off from conflict with the infidel, it finds its substitute in sectarian hatred of brother Moslems…”
    —Edward Augustus Freeman (1823-1892) British historian

    “Show me just what Muhammad brought that was new and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached.”
    —- Manuel II Palaiologos, (1350 – 1425) Byzantine Emperor

    “In the seventh century of the Christian era, a wandering Arab of the lineage of Hagar [i.e., Muhammad], the Egyptian, combining the powers of transcendent genius, with the preternatural energy of a fanatic, and the fraudulent spirit of an impostor, proclaimed himself as a messenger from Heaven, and spread desolation and delusion over an extensive portion of the earth. Adopting from the sublime conception of the Mosaic law, the doctrine of one omnipotent God; he connected indissolubly with it, the audacious falsehood, that he was himself his prophet and apostle. Adopting from the new Revelation of Jesus, the faith and hope of immortal life, and of future retribution, he humbled it to the dust by adapting all the rewards and sanctions of his religion to the gratification of the sexual passion. He poisoned the sources of human felicity at the fountain, by degrading the condition of the female sex, and the allowance of polygamy; and he declared undistinguishing and exterminating war, as a part of his religion, against all the rest of mankind. THE ESSENCE OF HIS DOCTRINE WAS VIOLENCE AND LUST: TO EXALT THE BRUTAL OVER THE SPIRITUAL PART OF HUMAN NATURE (Adams’s capital letters)… Between these two religions, thus contrasted in their characters, a war of twelve hundred years has already raged. The war is yet flagrant… While the merciless and dissolute dogmas of the false prophet shall furnish motives to human action, there can never be peace upon earth, and goodwill towards men.”
    — John Quincy Adams (1767-1848) Sixth President of the United States

    “How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia [rabies] in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. …The fact that in Mohammedan law [sharia] every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities—but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world.”
    —Winston Churchill (1874-1965) British Prime Minister

    “Qur’an… an accursed book… So long as there is this book there will be no peace in the world.”

    “I am afraid that God has sent these men to lay waste the world”.
    —-Patriarch Cyrus of Alexandria, while negotiating the surrender of Alexandria to the Muslims, 640 AD

    “During the thousand years that included the careers of the Frankish soldier and the Polish king, the Christians of Asia and Africa proved unable to wage successful war with the Moslem conquerors; and in consequence Christianity practically vanished from the two continents; and today nobody can find in them any “social values” whatever, in the sense in which we use the words, so far as the sphere of Mohammedan influence. There are such “social values” today in Europe, America, and Australia only because during those thousand years the Christians of Europe possessed the warlike power to do what the Christians of Asia and Africa had failed to do – that is, to beat back the Moslem invader.”
    —Teddy Roosevelt (1858 -1919) Twenty-sixth President of the United States

    “For these impious people, hated by God and infamous, boast of having got the better of the Romans by their love of God. They live by the bow, the sword and debauchery, finding pleasure in taking slaves, devoting themselves to murder, pillage, spoil,and not only do they commit these crimes, but even — what an aberration — they believe that God approves of them. This is what I think of them [Muslims], now that I know precisely about their way of life.”
    —-Gregory Palamus of Thessalonica, 1354

    “Considered as a nation, they [Muslims] are deplorably wretched, because they have no property in the soil to inspire an ambition to cultivate it. They are abject slaves to the despotism of their government, and they are humiliated by tyranny, the worst of all tyrannies, the despotism of priestcraft [their religion]. They live in more solemn fear of the frowns of a bigot who has been dead and rotten above a thousand years, than of the living despot whose frown would cost them their lives… The ignorance, superstitious tradition and civil and religious tyranny, which depress the human mind here, exclude improvement of every kind…”
    —-William Eaton, US Consul to Tunis, wrote in 1799

    “Islam was not a torch, as has been claimed, but an extinguisher. Conceived in a barbarous brain for the use of a barbarous people, it was – and it remains – incapable of adapting itself to civilization. Wherever it has dominated, it has broken the impulse towards progress and checked the evolution of society.
    —-Andre Servier, 1922— Algerian historian who wrote “Islam and the Psychology of the Musulman” translated by A.S. Moss-Blundell, 1924.

    “The religion of Islam above all others was founded upon the sword … Moreover it provides incentives to slaughter, and in three continents has produced fighting breeds of men – filled with a wild and merciless fanaticism”.
    —-Winston Churchill, 1899

    “Islam, more than any other religion human beings have devised, has all the makings of a thoroughgoing cult of death. As a matter of doctrine, the Muslim conception of tolerance is one in which non-Muslims have been politically and economically subdued, converted, or put to sword. The penalty for apostasy is death. We would do well to linger over this fact for a moment, because it is the black pearl of intolerance that no liberal exegesis will ever fully digest. There are other ideologies with which to expunge the last vapors of reasonableness from a society’s discourse, but Islam is undoubtedly one of the best we’ve got. The truth that we must finally confront is that Islam contains specific notions of martyrdom and jihad that fully explain the character of Muslim violence.
    —-Sam Harris, September 20, 2006, Liberal American author, philosopher and neuroscientist

    “Islam deserves criticism on account of the logical consequences of its dogma, namely, that the murder of fellow human beings is to be rewarded with sensual pleasure in a hedonistic ‘Paradise’- a concept born in the fantasies of an Arab rebel some fourteen centuries ago. The religion of Mohammed is a dangerous system when the teachings and example of the ‘prophet’ are believed and followed.”
    —-Richard Dawkins

    “Our life here is truly hellish. Fortunately, my soldiers are very brave and tougher than the enemy. What is more, their private beliefs make it easier to carry out orders which send them to their death. They see only two supernatural outcomes: victory for the faith or martyrdom. Do you know what the second means? It is to go straight to heaven. There, the houris, God’s most beautiful women, will meet them and will satisfy their desires for all eternity. What great happiness! This is Islam, an absurd theology of an immoral Bedouin, a rotting corpse which poisons our lives.”
    —-Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, 1881–1938, revolutionary statesman, writer, and the first President and founder of modern Turkey.

    “Over a billion people believe in Allah without truly knowing what Allah supposedly stands for or what he really demands of them. And the minority that do understand continue to be Moslems because they have redefined their morality and ethics to fit within the teachings of Islam, which are floridly lacking in morality. They therefore redefine what is good and evil in order to fit their lives into what is preached by Islam, instead of examining Islam to see if it fits within the good life. Backwards thinking, imposed by a backward religion.”
    —- Bertrand Russell (British philosopher, historian, logician, mathematician, and pacifist)

    “Just like Nazism started with Hitler’s vision, the Islamic vision is a caliphate; a society ruled by Sharia law, in which women who have sex before marriage are stoned to death, homosexuals are beaten, and apostates like me are killed. Sharia law is as inimical to liberal democracy as Nazism. It is not a fringe group of radical Muslims who’ve hijacked Islam and that the majority of Muslims are moderate. Violence is inherent in Islam; it’s a destructive, nihilistic cult of death. It legitimates murder.”
    —- Ayaan Hirsi Ali (Ex Muslim Feminist, Writer, and Politician)

    “The most successful lecherous man who used religion for his personal gain is Prophet Mohammed. Islam is a cult with its complete irrational belief in Allah created by Muhammed who was a liar, thief, murderer and rapist till his last breath.”
    —- Dr. Khushwant Singh, prominent Indian novelist and journalist, Professor, former lawyer and parliamentarian

    Terror at Beslan

    [This is a short docudrama on the 1 September 2004, terror attack on a
    small school in Beslan, Russia. The event covers the 3 days of terror by
    Muslim Chechen terrorists and their brutal and animal like behavior on
    defenseless children.]

    School Threat

    [* According to two trainers at an anti-terrorism conference on the East
    Coast, preparations for attacks on American schools that will bring rivers
    of blood and staggering body counts are well underway in Islamic
    terrorist camps.

    * The intended attackers have bluntly warned us they’re going to do it.

    * They’re already begun testing school-related targets here.

    * They’ve given us a catastrophic model to train against, which we’ve
    largely ignored and they’ve learned more deadly tactics from.


    Al-Qaeda has publicly asserted the “right” to kill 2,000,000 American
    children, Rassa explained, and has warned that “operations are in
    stages of preparation” now. He played vivid videotapes confiscated in
    Afghanistan, showing al-Qaeda terrorists practicing the takeover of a
    school. The trainees issue commands in English, rehearse separating
    youngsters into manageable groups and meeting any resistance with
    violence. Some “hostages” are taken to the rooftop, dangled over the

    edge, then “shot.”]

    The Third Jihad

    30-Minute Version of the New Documentary Film.

    [The Third Jihad exposes the war the media is not telling you about. It reveals the enemy our government is too afraid to name. One person who is not afraid to tell you the truth is Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, a Muslim American and former physician to the US Congress. After the FBI releases a radical Islamist manifesto describing how to destroy America from within, Dr. Jasser decides to investigate. The Third Jihad is about what he discovered. Interviews are conducted with radical Islamists in the US and the leaders trying to stop them, such as Rudy Giuliani, Clinton CIA Director Jim Woolsey, NYC Police Commissioner Ray Kelly, Senator Joe Lieberman, former Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge, and former terrorist group member Tawfik Hamid.]

    Cowardice act by an inhumane coward. Despicable.

    Having read some of the comments above – it’s quite embarassing to see how some ignorant idiots immediately bring faith/religion in to the equation. The war on terror is political, not faith based. Religion is always used to promote political means.

    I’ve worked across many muslim countries – they’re decent people and nothing like the taliban/al-qaeda.

  • L.E. Liesner

    Only this administration believes that you can negotiate with animals. Winning the “hearts and minds” my butt! Killing children in a school yard is about as low as you can get and not be under water.
