Photo Friday: “One free trip to Allah!”

An American soldier holds a U.S. Army hand grenade on which a soldier wrote “One free trip to Allah” while at an observation post in the Paktika province of Afghanistan Oct. 20, 2006 overlooking the Afghanistan-Pakistan border. The outpost, only 800 meters from the Pakistan, is frequently attacked by Taliban forces, many of whom cross over from the South Waziristan tribal area of Pakistan, according to American soldiers. Most Taliban believe they are fighting a holy war or “jihad” against non-Muslims in Afghanistan, and those who die in jihad are promised an eternity in paradise.
