Jihadi savages dislike vaccinations because they come from the West. Muslim clerics have claimed that they are designed to sterilize or poison children. This is how a society descends into chaos and barbarism.

“Suicide Attack on Pakistan Polio Vaccination Center Kills 15,” Associated Press, January 13, 2016:

QUETTA, Pakistan — A suicide attack on a polio vaccination center in southwestern Pakistan on Wednesday killed 15 people, mainly policemen gathered to escort health workers, officials said. It was the latest attack on the vaccination campaign and health workers have been repeatedly targeted in recent years by Islamic militants.

The bombing on the outskirts of the city Quetta killed 13 policemen, a soldier and a civilian, said Shahzada Farhat, a police spokesman. He said 23 people were wounded.

The suicide bomber detonated his explosives among the police officers, said provincial home minister Sarfraz Bugti. “We’re in a war zone,” he added.

The bombing happened outside the polio center shortly before vaccination teams were due to be dispatched to local neighborhoods as part of a three-day immunization campaign, said Syed Imtiaz Shah, the local police chief.

Hours after the attack, Ahmad Marwat, who described himself as a spokesman for Jundullah, or Army of God, a little-known militant group, claimed responsibility for the assault, without explaining why the center was targeted. He warned of more attacks on polio teams in the future.

Polio workers in Pakistan, and their police escorts, have been targeted in recent years by Islamic militants who accuse them of working as spies for the United States.

The attacks intensified after a Pakistani doctor was arrested on charges of running a fake hepatitis vaccination campaign in the city of Abbottabad as a cover for a CIA-backed effort to obtain DNA samples from Osama bin Laden ahead of the 2011 U.S. raid that killed him.

Pakistan is one of three countries in the world where polio is endemic, and the attacks have hindered vaccination campaigns. Some Pakistanis are also suspicious about the vaccinations, fearing it will sterilize their children.

Shah, the police chief, said the security forces were the primary target of Wednesday’s attack. He spoke to reporters from the scene, which was strewn with blood and debris, as rescuers took the wounded to hospitals….

Al-Qaida, the Taliban and other Sunni militant groups are also active in the region. Tens of thousands have been killed in Pakistan over the past decade in attacks mainly targeting security forces and the country’s Shiite minority….

    Maybe it would please islam if the west would not send any machinery, food, drugs, electronics or anything not mentioned in the qur’an to islamic republics. They could then bask in the essence of pure islam, uncontaminated by evil infidel influences.

    • Dr. Doomsday

      I’ve often wondered about how convenient it is they hate everything Western and modern, well, except the things they want around.

        No one has ever accused islam of being smart, consistan or intelligent. Like all parasites and maggots, they feed off of others.

  • Wayne Ville

    People should be upset because they realize they have been TRICKED and BETRAYED by vote pandering politicians and liberal media. The more I read about Islamic misogynstic rape culture they are importing the more I am sick that Europe is committing self-genocide and being betrayed.
    The media shows crying Muslim baby on TV but they do not tell people it is mostly Muslim men over 70% crossing border and show the disturbing perspective of Europeans suffering from migrants like this –

    People need to share horror stories of islam on social media. Social media is only place where liberal media cannot censor people’s thoughts. Only way to force change is thru VOTES kick out politicians who enable rapes of nonmuslims and betray own people

  • ConservativeLady

    Such massive ignorance. They would rather have polio. Guess it’s just Allah’s will

  • Yes It Is Political

    Perhaps we should let things happen as nature intended in Pakistan and see what happens. As they sure do not seem to be able to stop these issues. So we should simply back off for awhile till they decide who runs the country, perhaps?

    • joker

      See it on the bright side: more Pakies with polio and soon nicely gone.

  • Yitzhak

    It’s gotta stop – end all Muslim immigration to North America.

  • 1PierreMontagne1

    Indonesia a nation mostly Shiite and supporters of Iraq and Obama
    ISIS terrorists virtually all Sunni’s attacking Indonesian Shiites
    Makes perfect sense actually.
    Little wonder Shiites Nuking Mecca is an increasing possibility.

    • joker

      Indonesia mostly shi’a? That is quite new to me. They are all sunnis and looney.

    Too bad it wasn’t a nuclear suicide bomb.
