Its the Sunni Head Choppers vs Shiite Head Cutters. The epic battle of Bad Muslim vs Bad Muslim has made its way to the good ole U S of A!
While Nancy Pelosi's Democratic Party's Chief of Intelligence is still trying to figure out the difference between Sunni and Shiite Muslims are in the wide world of Islamic Fundemtalism/Terrorism, the sectarian violence that has haunted the Bush administrations plans for peace in Iraq, have finally found their way to our own backyard in my home state of Michigan in Jihad central itself, Dearborn or as we have come to know in the Blogosphere, Dearbonistan.

This is the first I've heard of this. Think I'll do a little trolling at some shia forums to see what they're saying. In the meantime, you might want to ask the moderator to put a graphic warning on this.
Words fail me.
You, of all people, should be able to guess who is responsible for the vandalism. It could only have been the Jews. LOL!
I couldn't care less if they burn each others businesses to the ground.

Vandals hit Shi'a stores
Muslim leaders cite Saddam's execution in Detroit damage
DETROIT -- Muslim leaders say a spate of vandalism over the weekend involving stores owned by local Iraqis could stem from brewing sectarian Islamic tension over the execution of Saddam Hussein.
While Shi'a and Sunni Muslims are fighting in Iraq, the two groups generally get along in Metro Detroit and the United States. But Muslim and Arab leaders say the hanging of Saddam, and especially the timing of the execution, spurred hard feelings.
They say the vandalized property was owned or operated by people of Iraqi descent who are Shi'a.
"People are scared to come here. It's very dangerous, this place," said Inaam Alkhafaji, referring to her Detroit business, Dana Media, whose windows were broken.
"It's a war with the Iraqi people. Maybe next time they kill us."
The tension that concerns Muslim leaders was spurred by the timing of the execution, according to Dawud Walid, the executive director of the Council on American Islamic Relations and other community leaders.
Saddam was ordered hanged by the Shi'a controlled government of Iraq on the morning Sunnis began celebrating Eid al-Adha, the holiest of Islamic festivals. Most Shi'a did not begin to celebrate until the following day.
While Shi'a Iraqis took to the streets of Dearborn to celebrate, many other Muslims viewed the timing of the execution as an insult. Realizing the tension in the local community, some clergymen were considering meeting this week to take action.
Shattered glass remained inside a cardboard box outside of Alkhafaji's store on Warren Avenue Monday. Next door, the window of the Al-Akhasi restaurant was boarded up -- it, too, had been smashed. A person called the restaurant earlier that day and made a threat that an incident would occur.
The incidents follow similar acts of vandalism at stores along Seven Mile near Woodward, Arab leaders say.
"It smacks close to it and that's the concern. That's what makes it different," said Imad Hamad, regional director of the American Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee.
The two major branches of Islam are split over governance of the faith. The Sunnis believe that because the prophet Muhammad designated no successor, the leader should be chosen or elected from the most knowledgeable Muslims.
The Shi'a believe the leaders should be drawn from the bloodline of the prophet, from his daughter Fatima and her husband, Ali, who also was Muhammad's cousin.
Meanwhile, the Council on American Islamic Relations-Michigan said a series of mailings containing drawings that slur Islam were received in recent days at two mosques, one in Ann Arbor and one in Metro Detroit, as well as at the CAIR office in Southfield. But Walid said the mailings, which seem to target all Muslims, are not related to the vandalism.

Interesting comments follow.
We have that Right in Florida, too, jew-bud! And defense of self or others isn't questioned like it is in liberal crap-holes.
Stay well armed and safe ............ FRegards
no surprise that Dearborn wound up with such a large Moslem population:
Good to be informed about what is going on in Dearborn Michigan, but Ze'ev Haas kind of looses you in the ramblings, pointing fingers at everything and everyone.
Perhaps we should encourage Puhlousey to . . . uhhh . . .
mediate between the waring factions. Very between . . . in the middle of?
I think I'm telling you correctly: if you want to post articles from your blog you should do that in the bloggers topic area, not news. If you post in news your link should be to the original article.
