The vile desperation of extremists has been exhibited in full unconscionable violence recently from attacks upon an airport in Istanbul, Turkey, to a cafe in Dhaka, Bangladesh, and culminating earlier today with a desecrated event when a suicide bomber detonated his belt near the Prophet's Mosque, Medina, Saudi Arabia, the second holiest site in Islam.
Four security personnel were killed as the lunatic extremist was intercepted in a parking lot on the way to the Prophet's Mosque, where the Prophet is buried, the second holiest site in Islam after Mecca.
There has been no claim of responsibility for the desecrated event. Two other suicide bombers blew themselves up in Jeddah and Qatif, Saudi Arabia also earlier today. Only the suicide bombers died in those events, according to media reports, but at least two security personnel were injured.
The Medina bombing that struck within range of the Prophet's Mosque underscores the vile desperate violence by extremists as they fallible ideology diminishes in influence upon the gullible.
Saudi Arabia's highest religious body, the Senior Council of Ulema, has denounced the terror act describing the parties responsible for the bombing as "renegades" who have "violated everything that is sacred" and "have no respect for any sanctity and they have no religion of conscience," the BBC-News reported.
