Explosive Mid-Easton News

The explosive news: from the Pakistan Taliban
came as no Shiite/Sunni surprise,
as bombs were being constructed;
in Bomblast, Afghanistan
when the Islamic bomb-makers stated:
Muslim weddings & Muslim funerals
were now targets too,
along with Americans
in places, where your "politics of religion";
were not in agreement with their beliefs,
no matter-
what Mosque you belonged to, in September 2011
or good Jew you knew.

Now doesn't that just blow, your Pakistani candle out

and keep you wondering in the dark about
"is this what Allah really wanted done? "
especially, if Muslim day-care centers
with Islamic children in them:
could be added/ to the/ "hit-list" too.

All over the middle east:
where civil and sectarian violence, is raging
bombs can be heard & felt,
in Iraq and Afghanistan:
where Americans, have boots on the ground
learning what the Russians were slow to know:
from 10 years of war
mis-understanding what "JIHAD" meant,
when it exploded by the roadside;
and killed non-combatants too,

as well as-

so many,
who had few Arab schools or Islamic Hospitals
(and looked just like them in a Turban or Burqa) :
when they died from their wounds,
at the market
in a Mosque
or car twisted in metal,
that martydom, had caused and blown apart
in the name of Allah:
that used "suicidal" hands.

For Abu Bomblast and his best friend Al Qaeda:
the "religion of war"
has become an ugly belief,
in Iraq & Afghanistan
some say, is "blown out of proportion"
in the way it religiously kills,
that many others say:
was "definitely" murder
and not even close to being...war,
especially, when innocent civilians
became victims of religious furor
in places, where the Koran was mis-interpreted;
in places where "differences"
on many occasions dis-agreed with,
what was in the King James' version,
of the bible,
that too often... resulted in the spilling of blood,
when "anger" spoke with violence,
and "exploded…" into fire.
