The Taliban is claiming responsibility for a suicide bombing in Pakistan.

A senior police official and two others died in Thursday’s attack, which happened in a residential area in the southwestern city of Quetta.

At least nine other people were injured.

Officials say the deputy inspector general of police was targeted while on his way to work, possibly for his role in arresting several militants in recent years.

Suicide attacks have accelerated in the southwestern region of Pakistan, endangering a planned economic corridor with China.

In the past six months there have been four suicide bombings targeting security officials in the region.

    All, Allah and his angels teach Muslims to be terrorists:

    * Islam is the political system and the ideology of terror. Qur’an 8:39 says, “And engage in war with them until there will not be sedition and the religion will be completely to Allah…” In Sahih Bukhari (V4,B52,N220), Allah’s Apostle says, “…I have been made victorious with terror…”

    * Allah is a terrorist. Qur’an 8:12 “When your lord revealed to the angels: ‘I am with you so make firm those who believed. I will cast a terror into the hearts of those who became infidels. So strike above their necks(decapitation), and strike off(chop off) every finger from them.’” Qur’an 3:151 “We will cast terror into the hearts of those who became infidels because they partner[other gods] with Allah which he did not send down with any sultan. And their abode is the fire, and evil is the place of the unjust.” “Believer” means a Muslim. Hypocrites are Muslims not practicing Islam.

    * Muslims are to be Allah’s terrorists. Qur’an 8:60 “And prepare for them whatever power you can and of the tying of horses. Strike terror into the enemy of Allah and your enemy and others, without them you do not know them; Allah knows them. And what you spend from anything for the sake of Allah, it will be repaid to you, and you will not be dealt with unjustly.“ Non-Muslims are Allah’s enemies; you cannot make peace with Allah.

    * Muslims are a greater terror than Allah. Qur’an 59:13 “You[Muslims] are a greater terror in their chests than Allah. This is because they[Jews & Christians] are people who do not understand.” Sahih Bukhari (V6,B60,N80) “Narrated Abu Haraira: The Verse:—‘You(true Muslims) are the best of peoples ever raised up for mankind.’ means, the best of peoples for the people, as you bring them with chains on their necks till they embrace Islam.” Infidels are the non-Muslims.

    * Allah’s Apostle brags about terrorizing, enslaving, killing, and stealing Jewish and Christian money, land, and lives. Qur’an 33:26-27 “And he brought down the People of the Book who backed them from their strong places and cast the terror into their hearts. A group of them you are killing, and a group of them you are taking captive. And he made you to inherit their land and their homes and their money and a land which you had never set foot on. And Allah was mighty over all things.” If you want peace, Islam must be banned(see Qur’an 47:35). People of the Book are Jews and Christians.

    * Allah commands believers to kill Jews and Christians until they convert to Islam or until they pay the extortion penalty(jizya) to stay alive. Qur’an 9:29-30 says, “Engage in war with those who do not believe in Allah nor in the last day. Nor forbid what Allah and his messenger forbid, nor believe in the religion of the truth among those who have given the book until they pay the jizya out of hand and they are subdued. And the Jews said, ‘Uzair is the son of Allah.’ And the Nasara(Christians) said, ‘The Christ is the son of Allah. ‘ This is their saying with their mouths; they repeat the sayings of those who became infidels before. Allah engages in war with them. How perverted they are!”
