16 killed by suicide bomber
« on: December 29, 2013, 04:18:28 PM »
A black widow suicide bomber has killed herself and 15 innocent victims at Volgograd railway station in S. Russia today. She had apparently been unable to pass the metal detectors, otherwise the death toll would have been much higher in the crowded rail station. She is the second black widow suicide bomber, the previous one set her's off in a bus.

There appears to be conflicting reports on the bomber, whose decapitated head had reported to have been positively identified earlier. The North Caucus region has been a hive of Islamist activity and at least one local Islamist leader has called for direct against the impending Winter 'Satanic' Games at Sochi. This can only increase any gitters the Kremlin and the Olympic Organising Committee must be having.

A spokesman for the Russian Investigating Committee said at a press conference that the bomber used the equivalent of 10 Kilograms of TNT.

May God have mercy on the departed.

Lord have mercy.
The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai

One of the many things I love about Russia is it's no toleration policy against Islamic fundamentalists. Appeasement is more the style of the Western nations.

Lord have mercy.

Sadly a second bomb has been exploded on a trolley bus in Volgograd, killing 14 including a year old infant.

Rest in peace.

I don't know how much stock to put in this:
Quote
Twin blasts... follow a threat by Saudi Arabia to attack Russia... if Moscow did not withdraw its support for President Assad in Syria.
http://www.prisonplanet.com/volgograd-bombings-follow-saudi-threat-to-attack-russia.html
To read Prison Planet you need a garbage detector, and the article did not give the exact quote by the Saudis. In other words, it could be a misreading of whatever was said. Plus, the quote was from August, and that was some time ago.
On the other hand, maybe there is a relation to what is in Syria after all.

Someone must have added NSA and CIA.  I specifically said "Christ-loving".

Pray also for the enemies. May Christ heal their rotten hearts and make them repent for their evil deeds. Amen.

Sadly as more than observer in the Russian Federation (RF) has commented, it is a pity that some of Western powers that have expressed solidarity with the RF over the Volgograd outrages are giving sanctuary to North Caucus terrorist group members in Western Europe.

According to a transcript of the comments made during the meeting by Middle Eastern news agency Al Monitor, Bandar made a series of promises and threats to Putin in return for Moscow withdrawing its support for Assad in Syria.

“I can give you a guarantee to protect the Winter Olympics next year,” Bandar allegedly stated, adding, “The Chechen groups that threaten the security of the games are controlled by us.”

Lord, have mercy.  Vichnaya pamyat'. 

They now say it was a male in the railway station, a Russian medical student who converted to Islam.

President Putin visited the injured survivors at a Volgograd hospital today, laid flowers at a street shrine and repeated his promise to crush the terrorists responsible for the 34 deaths and many more injuries.
