This out of Pakistan where a suicide bomber went to the tomb of a Sufi saint called Syed Usman Marwandi...... also known as Lal Shahbaz Qalandar, in Sehwan Sharif, a Pakistan southern Sindh province...... At last report there have been 72 killed with at least another 150 injured. The bomber targeted the woman's section and there are at least 30 children who were killed in the initial blast. ISIS has taken responsibility for the bombing.. Unfortunately the death toll will probably rise as it is still early.
This is not the first time this has happened or been claimed by ISIS or the Taliban.


In August last year, at least 74 people, mostly lawyers, were killed in a suicide bombing of a hospital in the southwestern city of Quetta.
In November, an explosion claimed by Islamic State ripped through a Muslim shrine in southwestern Pakistan, killing at least 52 people and wounding scores.



Shortly after the blast, the army announced it was closing the border with Afghanistan with immediate effect for security reasons. Insurgents operate on either side of the neighbours' long and porous frontier.

Hummm good idea ??? The Taliban not be be out done is also present and are called Jamaat


Jamaat also said it was responsible for a bombing in the eastern city of Lahore earlier this week that killed 13 people.

In a separate incident late on Thursday, gunmen on a motorbike killed three policemen and one civilian in the city of Dera Ismail Khan.

Most of Pakistan's myriad radical Sunni militant groups - including the Pakistani Taliban's various factions and Islamic State loyalists - despise Sufis, Shi'ite Muslims and other religious minorities as heretics.

Okay I'll take it on their word that not all are bad. If we can agree with them the bad ones need wiped off the planet! But they all seem to protect each other, don't hear many Muslims outraged on the news. Not even fake news like CNN,MSNBC....

I was playing golf back in the states a few years ago and met a girl from Kazakhstan. Nice lady and we talked a bit about her home country which is predominantly Muslim. I said something along the lines that well maybe your home country can bypass some of the strife and mayhem other countries are going through.. She just shook her . and said they (her country) were the wrong brand of Muslim..

Pretty sad IMO

That is because they risk being branded a heretic themselves since they believe the same words.

Sadly, some people actually believed lying Hillary, when she said that a video triggered the murder of our brave Americans in Benghazi, Libya.

What do you mean "DID!" They still cling to every lie the woman ever uttered as gospel truth ..IMO

Edit to add: this out of Baghdad.....Baghdad car bomb kills 51 as Islamic State escalates insurgency




BAGHDAD (Reuters) - A car packed with explosives blew up on Thursday in southern Baghdad, killing at least 51 people and wounding 55, security and medical sources said, in the deadliest such attack in Iraq this year.



Islamic State, which is on the defensive after losing control of eastern Mosul to a U.S.-backed Iraqi military offensive, claimed responsibility for the bombing in an online statement.

Those who still believe Hillary, after she admitted that she hates ordinary people, are eligible for a 5-star CULT membership... complete with the rat-poisoned Kool Aid.

Both the Taliban and ISIS/Daesh follow the hardcore Wahhabi sect's interpretations. Seeing as Sufis are also generally considered Muslims, it doesn't make sense for you to blame the victims here.

It doesn't make sense to kill someone over religion.

If your buddies understood that-we would not be where we are today.

It is coming to the point of either the West and its Muslim allies start to get serious, or we get the **hashtag** out.

Halfass bombing campaigns don't work. It just makes the West look ineffective and weak.




Either to the knife, or not at all.

Do, or do not, there is no just a little bit. Just a little bit is useless, and makes all their deaths meaningless.

Half ass renders their deaths and sacrifices meaningless--the Vikings called it a straw death.

1. Violent Wahhabis are no friends of mine. They target all non-Wahhabi Muslims, including people like myself.

2. You seemingly can't or won't differentiate between the sects involved here, so this conversation will go nowhere.

3. This entire "War on Terror" seems to be about "killing people over religion". So it's telling that you only point at one "side" about that, when non-Wahhabi Muslims make up the vast majority of victims of both Western "War on Terror" attacks and the actual terrorist attacks.

The attack in the OP is a perfect example. At least 72 Sufis were murdered by Wahhabis, yet you're blaming Islam.

What was the group that ISIS attacked?

Take one ISIS terrorist.

Publically kill him.

Slowly.


These low-life cowards know that the weak people in the west will protect them from harm while they continue killing.

You have to show these scum that they deserve no respect, treat them like dirt. They deserve nothing.

Save the strain on your fingers.

I learned all that I need to know about islam when I watched American civilians having to jump out of skyscrapers to avoid being burned alive in our Twin Towers.

Granted it can be hard for non-Muslims to differentiate between the sects...but it is possible, I'm learning albeit slowly to just that.

Not to toot your horn too much, but it's folks like yourself who will make that happen...if anyone can. You've helped me to start to do so, so it's not an impossible task.

...and that is why the hate festers, because you and others like you, can not look past that day. Which is, of course, what certain people want to happen. They thrive on the hate. The blood. ...and we give it to them, by blaming the entirety for the actions of a minority--a dangerous minority, true enough, but a minority none the less.

That's simply not true. The vast majority of the people fighting them on the ground are other Muslims! Why don't the Syrian Army, Iranian Army & proxy groups, Egyptian Army, Iraqi Army, Kurdish people, and Hezbollah get credit for their constant fighting against those Wahhabi groups? They're all Muslim-majority groups that are fighting them as we speak!

Why doesn't the Muslim majority Somalian army get credit for fighting Al-Shabaab (which is another Wahhabi group)? Why don't the Muslims in Nigeria and the Muslim-majority nation of Chad get credit for their current war against Boko Haram, the Wahhabi group that literally calls itself "ISIS West"? They don't get heard here or get any credit hear because Western countries consistently back the Wahhabi powerbrokers in Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and the GCC. It's not a coincidence that Western countries are constantly fighting against the Muslim groups that oppose the Wahhabis.

Muslims speak out against those groups all the time. It's not our fault that people here 1) only pay attention to news sources that don't mention this, and 2) don't do the research for themselves to find this out. Even a simple google search of "Muslim statements against terrorism" would make this clear.
