He was specifically targeted. He was warned beforehand not to make the trip.

You would think that the Afghans had enough violence for a while alas they are like the dog that bites the feeding hand.

They are only fit to be visited by the likes of Genghis Khan.

Of course the Taliban will deny it, it was probably a mistaken attack and admitting to it would be a PR disaster for them. You'd be a fool to believe that they had no involvement!

Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

Why on earth hadn't such a saint ever gotten awarded the Nobel Peace Prize while some people recommended Greta Thunberg to be nominated to it only because of the short speech?

Totally ridiculous.

The media won't say much about this (especially MSM in the West), but he was a Christian man. Don't be fooled... this was religious persecution. Dr. Nakamura is a martyr.

The people of Afghanistan loved Dr. Nakamura, during last few days helding Mourning ceremonies nationwide in Afghanistan confirms my claim. He was killed by Pakistani ISI ( intelligent service) that not want building canals to improve agriculture in Afghan Nangarhar province . Pakistan is the only country in this world that using terrorism fo achieving political goals. Dr. Nakamura assisstance and memory will be in the heart of every Afghan forever.

A fine example of a man.

Welcome home Nakamura sensei and back to Fukuoka.

I will lay a flower for you at Daizifu in the garden by the bridge in the coming days. If anyone deserves the Nobel peace prize this man does. His willingness to help and teach others is a sheer inspiration to me and so many others. With a heavy heart we welcome him home. Taken to early before a life's work could have been completed. May you find peace and refuge with your higher power sir.

I pray for the evil men who murdered you in cold blood be brought to justice and punished severely.
