Russia: Third Terrorist Attack in Four Days

But don't forget that you're a racist if you say that any of this has anything to do with Islam.

MOSCOW - At least 14 people were killed and 28 wounded when an explosion ripped through a trolley bus in the Russian city of Volgograd on Monday, the country's third deadly attack in four days. 

The explosion, which authorities blamed on a suicide bomber, tore out much of the electric bus' exterior, left mangled bodies on the street and raised fears about more violence in the lead-up to the Sochi Winter Olympics that Russia will host in six weeks.

NBC's Jim Maceda reports on the trolley bus explosion in Volgograd, Russia – a third explosion in the country in the last few days – as the Sochi Olympics near.

"For the second day, we are dying - it's a nightmare," a woman near the scene told Reuters, her voice trembling. "What are we supposed to do, just walk now?"

Volgograd, a city of around one million about 400 miles northeast of Sochi, is a key transport hub for southern Russia, with many bus routes linking it to the volatile provinces in the North Caucasus.

On Sunday, 17 people were killed in a terror attack by a suspected female suicide bomber at a railway station in Volgograd. And on Friday, a car bomb killed three people in the southern Russian city of Pyatigorsk, 170 miles east of Sochi, where the Olympics will be held. (Continue Reading.)

The suicide bomber is Pavel Pechenkin a former paramedic, who has converted to Islam according to the British newspaper the Telegraph.

This is too tragic that a person whose profession is to save lives now destroys it because of his new religion. Islam is indeed a barbaric, demonically inspired cult whose greatest glory is death. It boggles my mind how intelligent people can follow this filth of a religion which is devoid of any humanity. I am glad the country of Angola is taking steps to ban Islam. That is one country that is doing the right thing to confront this evil. I hope others will follow suit. A religion that turns otherwise normal human beings into killers should not be allowed to be practiced anywhere on the face of the earth. Folks let us call a spade a spade and confront this evil called Islam which is affecting the world like the bubonic plague.
