Religion of peace and tolerance. Right.
(( ping ))
The strife continues. It’s amazing that Fox News will only provide that piece of information and nothing else.
Iraqi officials say attackers have killed 25 people in Sunni area south of Baghdad, ML
BAGHDAD (AP) Iraqi officials say attackers have killed 25 people in Sunni area south of Baghdad.
Sad .. aftermath of Alawi’s election ?
With Iran intact, can Iraq, after US withdrawal, function at all?
Unrelated, but notice how the MSM stopped giving a near-nightly count of US troop deaths in Iraq right around January 20th, 2009?
Iran will always be the obstacle. God
bless the Iraqis.
The officials say most of the dead are members of local Sahwa, or Awakening Councils — one of several names for the Sunni fighters who changed the course of the war when they revolted against Al Qaeda and joined the Americans in late 2006 and 2007. They are also known as Sons of Iraq.
Mustafa Kamel, a Sahwa leader south of Baghdad, said the attack took place late Friday in Arab Jobour village, about 15 miles south of Baghdad.
An official at Iraq’s Interior Ministry confirmed the attack and said the victims were 20 men and five women.
I certainly hope this isn’t a sign of things to come, the election dispute between Maliki and Alawi could reignite the sectarian War that almost tore the country apart in ‘06 and ‘07. Maliki used to be a former ally of the Pentagon, do you think he is influenced more by the Iranians now or is he just trying to cling to power like any other politician would?
I see here a CNN story that ‘Iraqi security forces have arrested 25 suspects in the incident.’
I wonder if there is any politics that is being played when they round these people up? Sure, some legitimate suspects are rounded up,but it is hard to believe that the Iraqis weren’t just waiting for an excuse to round up 25 people that were most likely Sunnis. Not only are a bunch of Sunni Sons of Iraq eliminated and intimidated, but then the Shi’ites round up more ‘suspects.’
Well, FWIW, I believe Iraq (Babylon) will - once again - fall to Iran (Persia), setting up 2/3s of the “Lion-Bear-Leopard” triad that will threaten Israel’s extermination.
The third leg of the stool? Syria. It’s all starting to fall in place.
Watch how fast things start to happen when the U.S. pulls out of Iraq with no leverage or localized threat to keep Iran from going nuclear.
We’re not far from Armageddon, people. You think Israel is going to let Iran get nukes? Israel will nuke them first if that’s what it takes. if that happens, all hell is - quite literally - going to break loose there.
And Obama will fiddle while the world burns. The anointing of Satan (that is, the anointing of destruction) is on him. Everything he touches he destroys.
Hate to get all “Revelation” on y’all, but these are dangerous times, indeed, thanks to all the mental midgets that elected this idiot.
Obama is pure evil. It drips from him and I am looking forward to the day when God deals with him and his minions.
Sounds like Mexico.
What? Not a MAN CAUSED EVENT????
What’s wrong with these stupid reporters?!?!
God help Iraq. God help US. : sigh :
Americans wearing camo and chatting on the Internet = terrorists
Muslims killing dozens of people = gunmen
The victims were Muslims.
I have said it before and will repeat every chance I get. Islam is at war within itself, not only are some of its adherents attacking “infidels”.
These Muslim victims of violence by other Muslims took the brave step of siding with the United States when deciding to turn against al-qaeda.
But by the logic of some (not saying YOU) on this forum, who say kill all Muslims, then these victims deserved to die as well just for being Muslims and for no other reason.
By that logic, celebrations of their murders would be in order?????
We need to realize, as our generals and warriors do, that sometimes parts of the enemy will side with us. And that’s good, and we need to distinguish between those Muslims who side with us and those who murder these American Allies.
The ‘gunmen’ description got to me too.
This is sectarian violence against the SOI (Sons of Iraq) who are a bunch of Al Qaeda turncoats.
This sectarianism and political infighting will continue. Maliki, with the support of al-Sadr is trying to maintain his position.
If they do that to themselves, they certainly have no regard for us.
When He opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, "Come and see." So I looked, and behold, a pale horse. And the name of him who sat on it was Death, and Hades followed with him. And power was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, with hunger, with death, and by the beasts of the earth. Revelation 6:7-8
The Greek word for "pale" above is "chloros" and is the root of the word "chlorophyll". It literally means "green." The New Revised Standard Bible translates the passage more accurately:
I looked and there was a pale green horse! Its riders name was Death, and Hades followed with him; they were given authority over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, famine, and pestilence, and by the wild animals of the earth. Revelation 6:8
A few quick facts:
Islam claims between 1.5 and 1.8 billion adherents worldwide, giving it authority over 1.4th of the earth's population.
The Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC), headquartered in Tehran, claims 57 member nations: 1/3 of all the nations on earth (most of which completely surround Israel).
Wherever Islam rules, persecution, death, famine, disease, and war follow, as Islam reigns in some of the dirt-poorest nations on earth.
Now, as to the "wild beasts of the earth" part, even this is a description of Islam's adherents, who claim to be descendants of Ishmael:
And the Angel of the Lord said to her [Hagar]: "Behold, you are with child, And you shall bear a son. You shall call his name Ishmael, Because the Lord has heard your affliction. He shall be a wild man; His hand shall be against every man, And every man's hand against him. And he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren." Genesis 16:11-12
Another version says of Ishmael and his descendants:
He will be as free and wild as an untamed donkey. He will fight with everyone, and everyone will fight with him. He will have conflicts with all his relatives. Genesis 16:12
Finally, "wild beasts of the earth" in most places of the Bible does indeed refer to wild animals. But "beast of the earth" - when it is used in Revelation - refers to humans:
Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon. Revelation 13:11
"Wild beasts...'of the earth'" in this context refers to "wild, savage men."
This is perhaps the most damning proof of all that the rider of Revelation's 4th Seal is Islam:
What is more savage than men who behead others merely for possessing and sharing a different faith? What is more savage than the wanton and indiscriminate slaughter of innocent men, women, and children whether through the use of suicide bombers in crowded markets, rocket attacks on peaceful cities, or the flying of fully loaded airliners into skyscrapers?
Finally, it's said Mohammed's favorite color was green, which is why the color green appears prominently in virtually every flag and mosque around the world.
What represents the condition of mankind in Islamic nations today better than the hell that follows this religion of death anywhere it has taken hold?
And yet there are those who want to see this nation bow down to this religion of death as Obama has bowed to the Mullahs and Princes who use it to kill, steal and destroy from their people every day!
Islam is no religion of peace: it is the manifestation, the very embodiment, of death and hell on earth today. It is to be resisted and fought with every fiber of our being and every weapon in our arsenal.
See post 23.
Sure have. And not much coverage of the increased troops in Afghanistan.
