    Monday afternoon killing at two people, officials said. Does CNN even check their articles for mistakes?

    People should reflect about a VERY important truth stated by Yacobi:"There may be people labeling themselves as Hindu, but speaking truth, they are better than a muslim, claiming to be muslim but denying truth". This should be considered true in every religion, but Islam is specially keen on this concept and there is even a name to qualifie this kind of Muslim.

    Even when the people who proclaim that Jesus is the Father, Son and Holy Spirit the 360 cult has no right to kill them!

    The truth of 360 degrees is nothing but a man made cult that kills innocent human beings that has done no harm to anyone!

    Poor Guard and his family ...!!!! 🙁 There is no use of talking 360 truth when things like this happen. It is proved once again people cant do their jobs even where thy want and the way they want. Taliban want to rule over normal citizens just like before.

    Why then did Isaiah have both prophecies about His coming then His death?

    And here is another farce about Islam. They say Jesus was transformed by the almighty God into Judas so that He did not die on the cross, Judas did, but then the prophecy about Jesus' death in Isaiah chapter 53 was then false but then why did it happen as it was told? I'll tell you because both prophecies in Isaiah 42 and 53 were fulfilled for the Savior of the world and being wounded for our transgressions in both chapters respectfully!

      The pharisees were not pagans. They went strictly by the law as your 360 cult does. They left out the most important thing about God as your 360 cult does, His love for all mankind and we should not forget about his mercy either!

    We are helping to build schools and to create jobs so everyone has an opportunity in Afghanistan unlike the Taliban who restricted girls from going to school and women to their homes. Also only taught the young boys hatred for the west and jihad being a noble cause. And I highly doubt that the Taliban taught them science, math and history except that of Islam and the pagan Mohammad who became the spirit of truth after saying that the prophecy of Isaiah was for himself and not that of Jesus and what Jesus had called the comforter meaning Holy Spirit but the false prophet once again proclaimed that Jesus was talking about himself, the old man who married a nine year old girl. The last prophet, right?

      Dan – You are a liar. You are not helping the Afghan people. My italian friends did it from the 80ties without killing anyone.
      This is window-dressing after the massacre, but there are plenty of orphans ready to become suicide bombers like in Iraq.

        And i tell you the truth the enemy has made many more orphans than we have in both Iraq and Afghanistan. And we compensate the families that are killed mistakenly by NATO forces.

        Dan – They built hospitals and give emergency medical and surgery assistance. The US war created 500.000 orphans in Iraq and an imprecised number in Afghanistan. If just 2% of them become suicide bombers it means there are 10.000 suicide bombers in Iraq and probably about the same in Afghanistan. As about your compensation, almost nobody received it, as you give money to the military not to the people.

    If revenge why hit a shopping mall where there would only be civilians? I believe it was done to terrorize the people. Hence terrorist organization?

        Americans created so many suicide bombers than even low level targets are hit.

    It is tragic. I neverhteless disagree with Dan as the problem is not Sharya. Bangash correctly blamed both AlQaeda and US occupation, but I don't think it is done for Islam, as in the vast majority of cases these suicide bombers want revenge for having some relatives killed by the Americans or their allies, including the Pakistan military or Afghanistan officials.
    Unfortunately I fear these attacks will continue for many years even after the american will exit the country, because the violence always creates other violence.

    Very tragic, barbaric, inhuman and highly condemnable action and I do not understand why Afghans are being denied the right to live. Osama is, killing them in the name of Islam, through such inhuman suicide missions, while Obama is, killing them, in war on terror, in bombing, drone attacks, collateral damages and friendly fires. Where is the world human conscience to see this genocide? No doubt Taliban-Alqaida might be behind this barbarism but US occupation is its undeniable reason. Why not deny reason by ending occupation and stabilize Afghanistan in accordance with the UN Charter and under UN flag. Sooner Americans are replaced by UN it will be better for Americans, Afghans and whole world. Americans presence in itself is a problem not part of the problem.

    How sick can people be to try to destabilize the country when their doing so well? Their such jealous and hateful people that cannot have peace even with their own brothers. Do they not understand brotherly love? They believe that God would have them kill people to have their way with strict sharia law rather than God's given right of freedom for every human being. Their laws and punishments are against the human rights of the people especially the women and girls which many are scarred for life if not publicly murdered in the streets! And they call themselves godly people!!!
