Yet another civilized development from our war in Iraq and subsequent enactment of “democratic” elections for intolerant barbarians in which to choose fellow Iran-backed intolerant Shi’ite barbarians no different than the Sunni barbarians who ruled prior to our incursion. Is this really what Americans died for? Apparently so. And this story, below, is why it’s so disturbing and significant that Barack Obama softened America’s position on religious freedom around the world. He softened to appease these cretins who attack Christians.
Typical Associated Press coverage of this–using Muslim “reporter” and propagandist Saad Abdul-Kadir–blames this on Sunni terrorists and gives the “excuse” that Chaldeans (Iraqi Christians) supported the Shi’ite government. But that’s false. In fact, as I noted previously on this site, the Christians are against the Shi’ite, Iran-backed Al-Maliki government and voted by the tens of thousands for the secular Ayad Allawi. But their votes were thrown out, and Maliki refuses to cede power, instead disqualifying many of Allawi’s democratically-elected coalition members (more on that later). In fact, under Sunni/Saddam Hussein rule, Chaldeans had it better and could walk around in short sleeves and without veils. Now, they are being kidnapped, murdered, and forced to flee to the United States in droves as refugees.
BAGHDAD — Two bombs exploded minutes apart Sunday near buses carrying Christian students in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul, killing at least one bystander and injuring around 100 others, a security official said.
A shop owner in the area was killed in Sunday’s attack, said Abdul-Rahim al-Shammari, head of the provincial council’s security committee. The injured included students and other civilians, he said.
The attack began with a roadside bomb that exploded around 7:30 a.m. and appeared to target buses carrying students to Mosul University. Moments later, a car bomb exploded nearby.
At least 17 people with serious wounds were taken to a hospital in Irbil, in the Kurdish autonomous region, said Dr. Muhsin Shamzi, who works at the hospital.
“Today was terrible and I will not forget it for the rest of my life,” said Wisam Jarji, a student who was wounded in the blast. “Following the explosion, the situation in the bus was chaotic and I could see blood stains and hear screams all over the place.”
The U.S.-based National Council of Churches sent a letter last week to U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton calling on her to urge Iraqi officials to do more to protect Iraq’s Christian community. The organization said they were particularly worried now as Iraq struggles to seat a government after the March 7 parliamentary elections.
“Our concern is now particularly acute because it is possible that tensions will increase as various political forces continue to vie for power following the recent elections,” the letter said. “We fear that a growing climate of mistrust and animosity will further threaten the fragile Christian community.”
What a joke. The National Council of Churches is part of the cause of problems for Christians all over the Middle East. Throughout its history, the far left church organization repeatedly championed the cause of Islamic terrorists all over the Middle East, whether it was the PLO or others. All of these groups persecuted and murdered Christians.
The group’s outrage now is hypocritical. And too little, too late.
The point here, however, is that our invasion of Iraq–which had the potential to be a great move for America–became a disaster because President Bush embraced the mindless concept of “democracy” for Islamic barbarians. He could have embraced a pro-American Shah-like dictator and installed such a man. He could have run a war the way you actually fight one, and killed lots of people and destroyed lots of buildings.
Instead we engaged in Islamic barbarian “nation-building.” And we succeeded in building a nation of Islamic barbarians controlled by Iran-friendly Shi’ites. The Christians–the few left there–are paying the very high price.
