On her first day at Basra University this year a man came up to Zeena, a 21-year-old Christian woman, and three other Christian girls and ordered them to cover their heads with a hijab, or Islamic headscarf.
We didn't listen to him, and thought he might just be some extremist student representing only himself, she said. The next day Zeena and two of her friends returned to class with uncovered heads.
This time a man in the black clothes of the Shia militia stopped them at the entrance and took them aside. He said, 'We asked you yesterday to wear a hijab, so why are you and your friends not covering your hair?'. He was talking very aggressively and I was scared, Zeena recalled.
The girls explained that they were Christians and that their faith did not call for headscarves. He said: 'Outside this university you are Christian and can do what you want; inside you are not. Next time I want to see you wearing a hijab or I swear to God the three of you will be killed immediately', Zeena recalled. Terrified, the girls ran home. They now wear the headscarf all the time.
In the past five months more than 40 women have been murdered and their bodies dumped in the street by militiamen, according to the Basra police chief. Major-General Abdul-Jalil Khalaf said that some of them had been killed alone, others gunned down with their children. One unveiled mother was murdered together with her children aged 6 and 11.
The British Army will formally hand Basra over to Iraqi control in less than two weeks, claiming that it had done all it could to stabilise th

That’s horrible. I can see why many Arab Christians came to America.
What amazes me every day is that there are people around who feel that crap hole is worth one molecule of American blood.
Neutron bomb. Save the oilfields. Not too PC... but we’d be better off today without those talking chimps wasting oxygen over there.
Gee, ya think brian de palma might want to make a movie about these war crimes and so expose them to the light of the world? Oh wait, the US Military didn’t do it, can’t hurt the Military, the war effort or the President with it. Never mind.
May I, then, presume you are against the war?
This religion of "peace and love" has got alot of explaining to do when it comes to human rights of the female half of its population.
Looks like the Brits’ highly touted “Softly, softly” policy in Basra has paid off...for the militias.
All Islamic militias should be declared illegal and treated as insurgents and terrorists.
If this were to occur in an American controlled area, and the U.S. military commander let it go on.....As a citizen of the U.S. I would be respectfully request that the U.S. commander in the area be relieved and replaced by the POTUS. Granting Iraq sovereingty should be limited. These militias need to go.
The English cannot control the Muslims in their own country. They can’t be expected to do so in a foreign area.
We need oil. There were and are more efficient ways of getting it. Drastic times call for drastic measures.
But maybe their tolerance of Islam is actually one of diminished expectation, they don't expect the same level of civilized behavior from them in a way that ultimately mocks them because sub-consciously they don't expect anything better from this primitive brutes.
I tell people that Islam is equivalent to Nazism + a “god”. If only Hitler had cloaked his desire to conquer the world in the guise of a religious commitment to the pagan gods he wished to replace Christianity with ...
After 9-11 I thought the same way. Then Bush called on all of us to support his version of how the situation should be handled. So, now we are there.
A large part of me agrees with you, but, we ARE there.
There are small cracks that give some of us hope that GWB is right: “The Teddy Bear that Embarrassed Sudan”
AMEN and AMEN!
I don’t think a Muslim country on the planet is worth one molecule of American blood. A bomber or two and the job is done once and for all. Otherwise generations to come( assuming we don’t cave in and go Muslim rather than ‘offend’) will have to deal with this death cult and all infected by it.
I’m a woman, and I would have ordered a neutron bomb strike on 9-12. Pull out all troops and do it now.

Big, tough guys, killing women. [spit!]
No matter how extreme your politics, so long as you are anti Christian or anti American or anti White, you get a free pass in the media to do ANYTHING.
Islam, the religon of the modern macho man.
Ironically, his final act on the German people was the very opposite of being celibate.
Could be. I also think that anyone who is the enemy of America is popular with the lefties.
I’m a woman, and I agree. This death cult particularly hates women and cannot be allowed to spread, and the only thing that stops it is serious armed opposition.
It’s probably too late to do it now, but if the Muslims ever again attack on a mass homicide scale in the future (including things like Beslan), certain Muslim countries should be on notice that they will be the first to be vaporized.
I refuse to give islam one shred of recognition as part of a civilized world. It must be eradicated and however many muslims want to die for it, well, so be it. I agree that islamic countries should be put on notice that they can change or perish. The West’s “window of opportunity” to have the might to enforce this is rapidly closing.
