Religion of Peace and 'Sploding Headgear

Remember how hot and bothered the zanies got when a Danish 'toonist drew a "blasphemous" picture of Islam's founder with a bomb in his bonnet? Well, here's a report about that 'toon come to life:
KABUL, July 27 (Xinhua) -- Militants fighting Afghan government in a new tactic, hardly imagined by security forces, targeted and killed the mayor of Kandahar city, 450 km south of Afghan capital Kabul, in his office on Wednesday.
To target government officials, the militants had often in the past strapped explosive devices in their bodies or wore explosive vests and hunted the prey.
However, this time they organized turban bomb suicide attack in Taliban former stronghold Kandahar, officials confirmed.
"Ghulam Haider Hamidi, the mayor of Kandahar, was in meeting with some people when a man placed explosive device in his turban entered the meeting hall and blew it up, killing the mayor and injured another,"a statement released by kandahar's provincial administration said...
I wonder if they were inspired by the infamous 'toon.
