My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


The Religion Of Peace Strikes Again

These are abominations of everything we recognize as civilized.

--Revenge-seeking Shiite militiamen seized six Sunnis as they left Friday prayers, drenched them with kerosene and burned them alive, and Iraqi soldiers did nothing to stop the attack, . . .

This on the tails of . . .

--In the deadliest sectarian attack in Baghdad since the U.S.-led invasion, explosions from five powerful car bombs and a mortar shell tore through crowded intersections and marketplaces in the teeming Shiite district of Sadr City on Thursday afternoon, killing at least 144 people and wounding 206, police said [the number of dead is now 216]

And just to add to the fun . . .

--A Palestinian grandmother blew herself up in the Gaza Strip, lightly wounding three Israeli soldiers, in the first suicide attack claimed by Hamas in almost two years.

The mother of nine and grandmother of 41 became the oldest Palestinian suicide bomber at the age of 57,

Keep in mind that every person--EVERY ONE--who died as a result of these attacks was a Muslim. That's right, they just can't find the gates of Heaven fast enough to find out if the stories are correct.

Of course, the bombers themselves will never find out just what is in Heaven. Perhaps some of the childeren murdered in the marketplace will be able to greet them at the gates and point them in the right direction.

It is almost inconceivable that any society this enamored of death could either be defeated, or could ever manage to rule the caliphate they hope to recreate. Until some voices of reason start to emerge from the greater Muslim community, I'm afraid that they rather deserve the scorn and mistrust with which they are often greeted.

Oh, and, by the way, of all the mistakes committed by the U.S in Iraq, are any of them more important than the decision not to take out Muqtada al-Sadr when we had him holed up in a mosque early on in the war?
