Islamic State truck bombing at Baghdad market kills 67

BAGHDAD (AP) — A truck bomb ripped through a popular Baghdad food market in a predominantly Shiite neighborhood early on Thursday morning, killing at least 67 people, police officials said, in one of the deadliest single blasts in the Iraqi capital in years.

The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for the explosion, saying it targeted a gathering place of Shiites and vowed more such attacks.

The truck hit the Jameela market in the Iraqi capital’s crowded Sadr City neighborhood shortly after dawn, according to two local police officers. They said at least 152 people were wounded at the market, which is the main center for produce and food sales in Baghdad. SOURCE

Oddly enough I posted this picture on Facebook yesterday and was chastised by a friend of a friend for not having a proper *Christian* attitude, you know; the old *love your enemy* and *hate the sin but love the sinner* thing and again I was reminded of a line I heard a while back, *I don’t have a problem with God, it’s his fan club I can’t stand.

Well, here is the honest truth of the matter; I don’t really have a problem with the *Fan Club*, but some of the members are a real pain in the ass. 

We didn’t start this fight but after 2 attacks on the WTC, one on the Pentagon, the crash in Pennsylvania, the bombing at the Marine Barracks in Beirut and any number of other attacks, you can’t expect me to be all open hearted and filled with Christian sympathy over this attack in Sadr City. If you are, well, that’s YOU.

    The friend of the friend who was offended at your lack of loving feelings towards the islamic state should just go ahead and move over there, and volunteer to be all lovey dovey and get them all the jobs they so obviously lack.

    Your friend needs to throw some chlorine in their friend pool.

    That guy needs to realize that if we did our job, like Cruz says, and killed the terrorists, this explosion wouldn’t have taken place. If the terrorists were dead, the Iraqi’s could provide their own social workers and Medicare. Also, the world, including the US, would be a more peaceful place to live without Islamic terrorists.

    I like to ask these guys just what is a proper “Christian attitude” and what scripture do they base it on.

      Bob, the trouble is, all muslims are taught to think alike. It takes a jihadist to act out the directions of the koran.

    Or “turn the other cheek”? For me, hell no.
    I’m always armed when out on the street.
    You pop me, you’ll get a hollow point in your chest.

    How different is this than what’s going on in this country? Blacks are killing blacks by the dozens on most weekends in our big cities, its a bit slower during the workweek, and that’s okay with the homies in the hood but a cop shoots a black perpetrator and rioting, looting and burning their own homes and businesses consoles their feigned outrage. Muslims killing 67 Muslins, ain’t nutting’ but a thang yo (I don’t know the arabic or Persian translations.) As for your friend…unfortunately he’s not alone. As the late great Bob Grant use to say “Its sick out there and getting sicker.”

    The misquoting of Scripture NEVER ceases to amaze me! Understand it-then quote it (correctly)…

    I suspect that if the Mall of America were blown up and wiped off the face of the earth the main stream media (Ministry of Propaganda and good news) wouldn’t even mention it and the American unwashed masses would continue on as if nothing happened. But that just an opinion of a 76 year old Navy Viet Nam Vet.

      Eleven people were dangling below a helicopter on a rope. There were ten Naval Officers and one Chief. Since the rope was not strong enough to hold all the eleven, they decided that one of them had to let go to save all the others. They could not decide who should be the volunteer. Finally the Chief said he would let go of the rope since Chiefs are used to doing everything for the Navy. They forsake their family, don’t claim all of their expenses and do a lot of overtime without getting anything in return. When he finished his moving speech all the Naval Officers began to clap…
      Moral: Never underestimate the powers of a Chief.

        Best one yet! 🙂

          Chief & the Ensign
          The Chief was bragging to the Ensign one day. “You know, I know everyone there is to know. Just name Someone, Anyone and I know them.”
          Tired of his boasting, the Ensign called his bluff, “Okay, Chief, how about Tom Cruise”?
          “Sure, yes, Tom and I are old friends and I can prove it.”
          So they fly out to Hollywood and knock on Tom Cruise’s door and sure enough, Tom Cruise, shouts, Chief ! Great to see You! You and your friend come right in and join me for lunch!”
          Although impressed, the Ensign is still skeptical. After they leave Cruise’s house, he tells the Chief that he thinks his knowing Cruise was just lucky. “No, no, just name anyone else,” the Chief says. “President Bush,” the Ensign quickly retorts.
          “Yep, I know him, let’s fly out to Washington.”
          So, off they go. At the White House, Bush spots them on the tour and motions them over, saying, ” Chief, what a surprise. I was just on my way to a meeting, but you and that Ensign come on in and let’s catch up.”
          Well, the Ensign is very shaken by now, but still not totally convinced.
          After they leave the White House grounds, he expresses his doubts to the Chief, who again implores him to name anyone else.
          “The new Pope,” the Ensign replies. “Sure, I’ve known the Pope a long time.” So, off they fly to Rome. They’re assembled with the masses in Vatican Square when the Chief says,” this will never work. I can’t catch the Pope’s eye among all these people. Tell you what, I know all the guards, so let me just go upstairs and I’ll come out on the balcony with the Pope.” He disappears into the crowd headed toward St. Peter’s. Sure enough, half an hour later, the Chief emerges with the Pope on the balcony.
          But by the time he returns, he finds that the Ensign has had a heart attack and is surrounded by paramedics.
          Working his way to his side, the Chief asks the Ensign, “What Happened to you?”
          The Ensign looks up and says, “I was doing fine until you and The Pope came out on the balcony and the tourist next to me asked, Who’s that on the balcony next to the Chief ?”

    There are no “moderate” muslims. 64% of the koran is devoted to dealing with infidels. WE THE PEOPLE are called infidels among other things. The koran, hadith and sira cannot be changed according to islamic law. This leads me to believe that all those in Washington either can’t read or they’re on some wicked drugs. The politicos’ who keep saying islam is a religion of peace make me want to scream. Europe is a mess and it seems that the administration wants the same thing to happen here. I hope we make it to the next election with a conservative as the outcome. If another progressive or rino gets in, say goodbye to our nation as a republic.

  8. One Citizen Speaking says:

    You need ask yourself only one question …
    If it is Allah’s will, why do they kill so many innocent women and children?

    And, if you are intellectually honest …
    If it is Allah’s will, why hasn’t there been a clear winner in the sectarian was between the majority Sunnis and the minority Shia who the Sunnis consider apostates — worse than infidels. If bin Laden was faced with an American infidel and an innocent ten-year old Shia girl, he would be honor bound to kill the girl as an apostate.

    Sort of puts it all in perspective.

    Kill them all, and let God sort them out. We are not playing God when we do this, we are arranging the face-to-face meeting.

      There you go, exactly right. A comment at another site today said Spain and Portugal showed us what is needed several centuries ago. Get it on. A spoon full of that sugar across the desert plains man, makes the medicine go down. I think I incorporated more than one old song with that phrase, man. I been everywhere. 🙂

    I say bomb the daylights out of the ISIS clowns and watch them do the Allah Boogie. I wouldn’t use nukes, as that would be bad, but bomb them to the point their gopher mounds are flattened out. It’ll be quite entertaining watching the pinkos throw temper tantrums as their idols get lit up with gun powder.
