Christians Bombed: Your Day in Iraq “Democracy,” “Freedom,” & “Religion of Peace” “Peacefulness”

By Debbie Schlussel

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.

Sounds like an isolated incident to me. After all, islam is the religion of peace, so that couldn’t be the reason.

It is amazing that the United States seems to have a non-existent learning curve. Our government keeps seeking out moderate Muslims who either do not exist or have no power as negotiating partners at home and abroad. CAIR, despite its past associations and support for weakening our security, still is treated as a legitimate partner for discussions and dialogue by government and non-governmental organizations. How many people must be brutalized or killed before the United States begins to see that straight Islam is the problem, and not the solution to various problems in Moslem majority countries?

Why side with the christians? They have been at the forfront of anti semetism for more then a millenia. Plus they worship a false prophet who falsely claims
to be god.

    Why don’t you clean your bathroom? It is probably quite a mess. That would be a better use of your time, since your persuasive skills fall somewhere below that of a rapist trying to persuade the police that the victim deserved it.

    Sorrow01 on May 3, 2010 at 3:37 pm

Debbie, thanks for being diligent on what is really happening. Muslims will exterminate all non-believers. It is rather obvious, however our nation is no longer made of serious people.

CaliforniaScreaming on May 3, 2010 at 3:22 pm

Seems to me there is a strong anti Christian agenda on the left.

With this as a given, Islam becomes the PC religion of choice.
How else can a wacko like Farikan get so much traction?

Therefore, the realities of this religion cannot be acknowleded by the MSM.

Sam Adams on May 3, 2010 at 3:35 pm

No, Islam is just as bad. Difference is while they do physical damage the Christians are doing it mentally by trying to get the bible taught in school as historical fact, that the earth is only 6000 years old, that all humans are descended from 2 people, the list goes on. Better to let all the abrahamic religions kill each other off.

Nak on May 3, 2010 at 3:42 pm

    Have you started on your toilet bowl yet? It really reeks. Do you need some Ajax for it?

I remember when the old Soviet Union shot down a South Korean civilian airliner. George Will had a line that went something like “The National Council of Churches has yet to condemn the South Korean airliner for aggressively bumping into a Soviet missile”.

Mainstream Christianity does not believe the earth to be 6000 years old.

I’m pretty sure you know that….well maybe not.

Sam Adams on May 3, 2010 at 5:08 pm

Sam Adams:

Define “mainstream Christianity.”

When the World Council of Churches is left to raise the issue of the Christians in Iraq because the evangelicals who supported the Iraq War and the Bush doctrine of spreading democracy in the Middle East are forced to be silent because of it, it is a sad state of affairs.

My guess is that the World Council of Churches is trying to build up their credibility among Christians who are not “mainstream” by briefly stepping away from their usual agenda of supporting atheism, socialism, anti-Semitism and homosexuality.

WE waisted all this time and all our troops on these anmials and heres the results. Should’ve done like Bush 1 and left Saddam in place, his form of barbarism is all these people understand and all they deserve.

ARISHEM on May 3, 2010 at 7:33 pm

I guess Debbie better spray this site with vermin-repellent. Recent comments suggest that this is needed. Why side with the Christians? With minimal reading comprehension skills one can learn that they are being attacked by Muslim barbarians. That is reason enough, even leaving aside the fact that an attack on Christians is de facto an attack on Western traditions. Maybe the vermin spray will get rid of the Cair-ites who constantly infest this site.

Mental damage? From believing the Earth is 6000 years old and that all mankind descended from 2 humans? I have believed this all my life and I am trying to figure out what the mental damage I now have, according to Nak, has led me to do? Have I killed anyone? No. Or tormented anyone into believing this? nope. How does adhering to those beliefs be damaging to anyone? What a foolish thing to say. It makes no sense. Now believing the opposite, that people are descended from animals, leads to a devaluation of human life–that we are basically nothing…just matter…and that leads to abortion and euthanasia…. My beliefs lead me to VALUE life. Call me crazy, I guess!

The National Council of Churches is something the Protestants came up with since they don’t have God’s mandate, simply because don’t have St. Peter’s keys.
And they are a joke. Playground Christianity.

I would have split the country up 3 ways, along ethnic and sectarian lines…but one focal point is easier to control than three.

There is hope in 2012 to resolve issues facing America in the Middle East…if Lt. Colonel Allen West (Ret.) is on the ticket.

The sad truth is Americans died in Iraq to establish an Islamic terrorism supporting regime.

Under Saddam the lunatics were held down enough that society was able to function. Christians were 2nd class citizens, but were not murdered on a scale like this.
Bring Saddam back. He was better than any of these democratically elected idiots.

Yes, I know he’s dead, just put in somebody like him.
I don’t even believe Saddam was a believing Muslim. He would go through the Muslim motions sometimes, but was probably an atheist.
