An Iraqi man stopped a would-be suicide bomber from the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) from reaching his intended target on Thursday night; thus, saving dozens of lives at the Sayyed Mohammad Shrine in the town of Balad.

According to Iraqi activists, the man was identified as Najih Shaker Al-Baldawi – a local resident of Balad that physically stopped the terrorist from entering the shrine before the latter detonated his suicide vest, killing them both in the process.

Without Al-Baldawi’s heroics on Thursdsay night, the death toll from the Islamic State terrorist attack at the Sayyed Mohammad Shrine could have risen exponentially.

That’s not heroics–that’s real heroism. He made the world a better place–and a worse one. Better because he prevented some horrors, worse because he’s not in it anymore. God bless him.

I don’t know if I would have the balls to do that. I wonder if he knew that what he was doing was going to cost him his life at the time. What a great man. I can’t think of a better way to go than saving the lives of others.

If only had a carried a pistol : it’s much better than the bodycount of a suicide bombing is only of “1” : the terrorist and no one else…

You do realise that most suicide bombers have a “panic button” or physically hold the detonator in their hands so that if they die before detonating the bomb, the weight of their hand or their bodies is enough to trigger the detonation. So shooting a bomber in a crowd of civilians would just cause the bomb to go off therefore killing many people.

If he had a gun he could’ve shot other innocent people too.

I’m not sure that would have worked my friend. Hugging the bomber absorbed the blow, where as shooting would have produced much worse results.

How do you know that Najih Shaker Al-Baldawi’s selfless action was not “Allah’s will”? I suspect that it was. He will get his 72 virgins, and so much more.

4:92. Never should a believer kill a believer. […]

4:93. If a man (a believer) kills a (another) believer intentionally his recompense is Hell to abide therein (for ever): and the wrath and the curse of Allah are upon him and a dreadful penalty is prepared for him.

The “Burning forever” is reserved for the bomber, according to the Q’uran.

Can a single man stop allah’s will?
Then the army certainly can thus all allah followers already lost.

I don’t understand why people will kill themselves (the suicide bomber) over imaginary beings (religion and Gods)? The dumbest thing I’ve heard. Use your head.

Iraq police officials said “an attack carried out by multiple suicide bombers on a Shiite shrine north of Baghdad has killed 36 and wounded 52”. Police officials say the attack began late last night when a suicide bomber targeted policemen guarding the entrance to the Sayyid Mohammed shine in Balad, 80 kilometers north of the capital Baghdad.

God will bless this great man. His selfless, ultimate sacrifice will instill in all good people to bring a swift end to the maggots known as Daesh– cutthroats and brothers of Satan, Bush, Obama and the bitch and the witch in the White House- the foul smelling mass murderer Clinton-and her over-sexed Billy the Balls boy, also a murderer of humanity–
