Proof Radical Terrorists Hate Education

Education is the biggest threat to the radical agenda.

Because once people know better, the radicals will be powerless.

 
The largest bombing in Afghan War history happened a few months ago in front of the Ministry of Education.
 
Then, a month ago two teachers were kidnapped from the American University in Kabul and there whereabouts are still unknown. Today, the university was hit again and hundreds are trapped inside.
 
They're attacking the Afghan ability to be self-reliant as a result of education.
 

They just continue to make our point for us.

Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone in Kabul. We'll be posting an update once we hear from our factory there.

CNN Terrorists Kabul Afghanistan University

Blast, gunshots reported at American University in Kabul

WHAT WE KNOW SO FAR:

  • Gunshots heard after crisis response unit enters campus
  • At least five people taken to the hospital after attack at American University in Kabul

"Eyewitnesses said they heard gunshots and a blast, while Tarek Mahjari, a reporter for TOLOnews, told his employer in a phone interview that fires are burning on the campus.

    Ambulances, security forces and search and rescue teams were en route to the university. A crisis response unit entered the university, where officials said dozens of students and staff were trapped.

    Gunfire erupted again shortly after the unit entered campus, the Afghan news channel reported.

    The report comes fewer than three weeks after the school was forced to suspend campus operations after two teachers -- an American and Australian -- were kidnapped at gunpoint. Their whereabouts remain unknown.

    A rash of kidnappings and Taliban bombings have heightened security fears in Kabul. US and other diplomats have been barred from traveling by road the short distance from the city's international airport to their diplomatic missions. Instead, they've been ferried by helicopter."

    CNN's AnneClaire Stapelton and Daniel Nikbakht, and journalist Sune Engel Rasmussen contributed to this report.

     

    Officials say "hundreds" of people, including foreign staff, are stuck inside, as government forces have encircled the campus.

     This is the second assault on this American University in Afghanistan this month. 

    "You can't help but think that even though at this point the assailants are unidentified that when you attack the American university in Afghanistan you are clearly seeking to attack they symbolism of what that represents. This was supposed to be a lasting legacy for American in Afghanistan." –Nima Elbagir, Senior International Correspondent
