Karma or inshallah?
A “Black Widow” suicide bomber planned a terrorist attack in central Moscow on New Year’s Eve but was killed when an unexpected text message set off her bomb too early, according to Russian security sources.
The unnamed woman, who is thought to be part of the same group that struck Moscow’s Domodedovo airport on Monday, intended to detonate a suicide belt on a busy square near Red Square on New Year’s Eve in an attack that could have killed hundreds.
Security sources believe a spam message from her mobile phone operator wishing her a happy new year received just hours before the planned attack triggered her suicide belt, killing her but nobody else.
It’s one or the other, really. Fate that she should detonate and kill no one else, or God’s will that she go pop before the appointed hour. If the first, then her God plays no role in the actions of this world. If the latter, then he doesn’t want his faithful running around killing innocents.
In either case, what’s the point, eh?
