Sometimes one has to acknowledge the possibility that there is a God . . . with a wicked sense of humor. In Iraq, a commander at a terrorist camp was teaching a class on suicide bombings with a belt packed with explosives. There is now an opening on the faculty after the instructor accidentally blew himself up with his suicidal students. It was a case of Publish
or And Perish.
The explosion killed the leader and 21 other members of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. Suicide bombings are up in Iraq and the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria is the ivy league of murderous fanatics. It was originally called “Al Qaeda in Iraq,” but Al Qaeda actually disavowed the group. I am not sure what is worse: blowing up your class on suicide bombing or being so violent and hateful that even Al Qaeda wants nothing to do with you. It is like Justin Beiber and Charlie Sheen ditching you on a Saturday night because you are bit too wild for their tastes.
In addition to 22 militants killed, 15 others were wounded. Eight militants were arrested at the scene and the police seized explosives packed in at least 10 vehicles as well as heavy weapons.
The story also reaffirms the preference of many students to sit in the back of class. However, I understand that the biological terror course just had a serious drop in registered students while the “Origami for Allah” seminar is overflowing at Ole ISIS University (“The Fightin’ Sunni”).
This would seem a win-win situation. The dead will claim paradise while we can be rid of a couple dozen assuring murderers. Nevertheless, the Sunni organization continues to aspire to kill innocent men, women, and children, including 50 suicide attacks occurred in Iraq in November (compared with three in November 2012). This accident probably spared hundreds of civilians from the lethal passage to paradise taught by the ISIS.
