It turned out that the grisly attack last week on the mine clearers (blamed here on JT on the Taliban), was carried out and claimed by IS.

IS probably trying to stop the Taliban claiming any 'moral' highground, by dragging them down to their old level. Disgusting behavior.

These attacks increased after it was revealed that a fake hepatitis vaccination campaign was used as a ruse by the CIA in the hunt for al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden. Bin Laden was killed by U.S. commandos in 2011 in Pakistan.

Obviously the vast majority of the responsibility of the attacks reside in the terrorist themselves, but giving an excuse to target vaccinating teams was a horrible lapse of judgement from the CIA and part of the blame is theirs.

Does not take a great leap to assume it was an attack by Islamic terrorists.

It did happen in a majority Muslim country, so you’re probably my correct. That said, no need to be anti-Semitic.

Do you feel better having post “Islamic” and “terrorists” together in the same sentence?

They want to live in the Stone Age. Is it possible to force such ppl to change?

Thank you for not being anti-semitic here. Finally.

Better? What kind of question is that? People trying to give vaccines were killed. You want to minimize that?

For me, I do not support this kind of Islamic terrorist attack on innocent civilians. IS, as mentioned in the article, is not an Islamic terrorist group?

Massive ignorance is a danger to many people.

I have never been anti-Semitic on these threads; however, you continuously accuse me of being so.

No part of my post can be misconstrued to claim I am minimizing the deaths here. Of course, you constantly label me an anti-Semite, so you do like seeing things that aren’t there.

No rational adults supports any type of terrorist attack whether that be Islamic or Israeli.

IS is an Islamic terrorist group, but we have zero evidence yet it was IS. That, however, didn’t stop you.
