Three people are dead and at least another 25 are injured following a powerful explosion in Pakistan Friday.

The incident happened in a scarcely populated area of the Bajour tribal region close to the Afghanistan border.

Initial reports suggest the blast was caused by a remotely detonated roadside bomb.

No one has claimed responsibility for the attack.

However, the area is known to have a heavy Taliban presence with insurgent attacks occurring on a regular basis.

    If the Shia and the Suni could respect eachothers beliefs. Israel has multiple religions that respect eachother but the balance of the regions in their part of the world is in total chaos. Actually slaughtering eachother. Men. Women. Children. The future.
    Most human beings across the globe believe in live and let live. It is a matter of respect for human life and dignity. It all breaks down to love for one another. Jesus descended to the earth to teach us to love and help one another. I am confident that this was also the purpose Allah/God sent Muhammad who is the prophet and founder of Islam.

      You obviously have not read the Quran and know nothing of Muhammad and the basis for his creation out of thin air the ideology of Islam masked as a religion. Please do some basic research and eliminate your naiveté about Islam.

        I have not read the Quran but I have read that Sunnis emphasize God’s power in the material world, sometimes including the public and political realm, while Shiites value in martyrdom and sacrifice.
        More than 85 percent of the world’s 1.5 billion Muslims are Sunni. They live across the Arab world, as well as in countries like Turkey, Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Malaysia and Indonesia. Iran, Iraq and Bahrain are largely Shiite. The Saudi royal family, which practices an austere and conservative strand of Sunni Islam known as Wahhabism, controls Islam’s holiest shrines, Mecca and Medina. Karbala, Kufa and Najaf in Iraq are revered shrines for the Shiites.
        Saudi Arabia and Iran, the dominant Sunni and Shiite powers in the Middle East, often take opposing sides in regional conflicts. In Yemen, Shiite rebels from the north, the Houthis, overthrew a Sunni-dominated government, leading to an invasion by a Saudi-led coalition. In Syria, which has a Sunni majority, the Alawite Shiite sect of President Bashar al-Assad, which has long dominated the government, clings to power amid a bloody civil war. And in Iraq, bitter resentments between the Shiite-led government and Sunni communities have contributed to victories by the Islamic State.

          It reads like you want to give Islam some Sunni slack. The Quran and Hadith writings do not justify such leniency. The problem, in part, is that Saudi money and expanding Iranian and Pakistani Shia political influence will create further global disruptions through jihad, hijrah and taqiyya among a number of Islamic global caliphate creating strategies and tactics. I decline to be as tolerant as you. Speaking at Kanal D TV”s Arena program, PM Erdogan commented on the term “moderate Islam”, often used in the West to describe AKP and said, “˜These descriptions are very ugly, it is offensive and an insult to our religion. There is no moderate or immoderate Islam. Islam is Islam and that’s it.”

    The Pakistan government is just as much our enemy as are the Taliban and ISIS. If the U.S. stopped the diplomatic welfare to the Pakistan government, then our enemies would have less.

  • Generalmayhem

    Nothing to see here just a bunch of very pious Muslims killing those that are just not as pious, with permission to do so by the Satanic versed Quran as allegedly dictated (since he could not write but was the shining example for all pious Muslims to emulate) by the big Mo as he beheaded more not so pious Muslims in his day.

    Islam will apparently keep on destroying its own people as well as “infidels” until the Master Yahusha (Lord Jesus) returns in power to bring these Dark Ages to and end, which will mean an end to Islam and all other evils, and to bring on an age of peace, joy, and productivity under His eternal reign, amein.
