Early Tuesday morning, in a blatant Afghanistan suicide attack, a 22-year-old female belonging to the militant terrorist group Hezbi-Islami (who have ties to the Taliban) drove a car filled with 600 lbs. of explosives purposefully into an oncoming mini-bus, containing between eight to ten "foreigners," on the highway leading to Kabul National Airport while simultaneously igniting her munitions load via her suicide vest.
So far, authorities believe all passengers of the targeted mini-bus perished along with the suicide car-bomber. The group Hezbi-Islami has reportedly officially taken responsibility for the attack, stating that they were yet ANOTHER violent response to non-Muslims for the creation of the "Innocence of Muslims" Anti-Islam video made by Nakoula Basseley Nakoula.
Once again, the Afghanistan suicide attack kills people who had not a shred-of-an-ounce to do with the creation, filming, or distribution of the "Innocence of Muslims" video. The victims have paid someone else's tab. Ever since the movie-trailer went viral on the Internet around the world, there has been one murder after another in response to it. Maybe it is time to stop nickel-and-diming over the predicates of the First Amendment for people like Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, who bring forth immeasurable violence and suffering on totally innocent people with their maniacal, irresponsible behavior. Would Nakoula make another Anti-Islam hate-video if his family was on vacation in Kabul? Hmm, who knows? Maybe he would.
