A series of bomb blasts targeting Christians in Baghdad has killed at least three people and injured two dozen more, security sources have said.
At least 14 roadside bombs were detonated and a mortar round was fired in Christian districts across the Iraqi capital last night and early this morning.
An interior ministry source told Reuters that the attacks were a continuation of the massacre at Our Lady of Salvation church which killed dozens of worshippers last week.
According to one report, todays bombings targeted the family of one of the victims of the massacre.
The Islamic State of Iraq an al-Qaeda front group claimed responsibility for the Baghdad church attack and warned in a message published on militant websites that more attacks would follow. We will open upon them the doors of destruction and rivers of blood, the statement said.
The latest bombings follow protests by Iraqi Christians in Sweden, Australia, Britain, the Netherlands, Germany and America who urged the Iraqi government to do more to protect the countrys minorities.
About 300 protesters at the Black March in London called on Britain to remember its historic debt to Iraqs Aramaic-speaing Assyrian Christians, who fought alongside Britain in two world wars.
Two Christians were also reported to have been murdered on Sunday.
This was in an article by Fr. Raymond D'Souza that markomalley just posted:
But let us not blanch from raising our voices to the Lord, with righteous anger and hot tears, that He might visit His vengeance upon those who did this, bring down His wrath upon their heads and exact upon them a terrifying justice in full measure.
There must be negative consequences to Muslims for doing things like this. If their own Islamic countries can't control them, then those countries should suffer. Not another dime to them for anything, no support whatsoever, until they deal with this problem and have every single one of the perpetrators and their networks in jail or dead.
The great Zero said we should understand this in the light of Islamic teachings.
Meanwhile, Obama is cuddling up to people that HATE Christianity.
Obama reaches out to Muslims
Says U.S. ‘will never be at war with Islam’ in Jakarta address
By Kara Rowland
Building on his previous efforts to reach out to the Muslim world, President Obama stressed Wednesday that the United States “is not and will never be at war with Islam,” and extolled before a crowd of Indonesian students the possible benefits of collaboration on entrepreneurship, technology and education.
But while he touched on the security-related issues, Mr. Obama clearly sought to emphasize other bonds with Indonesia, reflecting on his memories as a child and praising the Asian nation’s “democratic transformation” since then. His administration announced a swath of new partnerships with the country, including a new entrepreneurship program that will be funded in part by the State Department and a five-year, $88 million initiative aimed at improving the quality of higher education in Indonesia.
Giving away money WE DON’T HAVE!
Does he understand we have RECORD DEBT?
We are BORROWING MONEY to GIVE AWAY TO OUR ENEMIES!
YOu’re too late ...

It’s totally insane!
Spending money we DO NOT HAVE.
Financing our own debt and printing MORE MONEY and THIS is how this ***tard spends it - on our enemies!
What people didn’t see when they elected this hate filled freak is, his idea of “spreading the wealth around” was GLOBAL. He wants to dilute America’s wealth and technological edge to our enemies and put America in her place as an impotent power. Obama’s hatred for America is over the top.
Its time for the Christians to stop acting like sheep and start acting like lions with these terrorist.They need to take the fight to the enemy.
Gee if Islam is as peacefull a religion as they say it is Muslims WOULD really care and are not like THESE terrorists extremists right?.....they would come out and defend the Christians right?...just like they came out and condemned the 9-11 attack right?...or condemned the USS Cole bombing right?...or the Ft Hood massacre right?...
Nation building only made things worse for the Christians of Iraq.
I supported removed Saddam, but that was it. The countless dollars we have spent afterwards was a waste. You can’t turn countries full of barbarians into a civilized society.
Exactly right. We've taught these people that violence directed against our interests results in concessions on our part. We must begin teaching them the opposite. Since 911 we've extended the hand of brotherhood and they scorn it. We have not earned their friendship and lost their respect
Suspend Muslim travel and immigration to the west. Economic and social disengagement. Stop western mosque construction immediately. Begin building Nuke and coal power plants to reduce our need for Mid East oil. Strong "hard power" military action against those who threaten us where it serves our interests.
The militants are only able to pull this BS because there is a large population of non-terrorist individuals and states that find it easier to go along than suppress them. We must make the cost of indifference very, very, high indeed.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
This kind of thing wouldn’t had happened in Saddam’s Iraq. Sure Saddam was a son of a bitch, but he was a secular son of bitch with religious tolerance for Christians.
Seems to me, the U.S. has pulled out far too soon.
One of those blasts was so loud it shook my building and I was sure it was on base here and not far.
That sucker must have been HUGE.
Prayers up for the Iraqi Christians. I know quite a few of them.
Prayers for safety for these souls who just want to worship
God in peace.
I pray that the fake president causes no more harm with his
reckless and careless words in Muslim cultures.
“Pray for Christians throughout the middle east. Pray for our president turn his heart toward life and away from his ideology and culture of death.”
(With his index finger pointed up) "The holy Quran tells us..."
Maybe just ONCE our fearless leader presidente globetrotter could speak out against the religious intolerance being exhibited against Christians he claims to know and love.
The problem if the iraqi christians do fight back is that the west are too politically correct to back them over the muslims while the muslim countries have no problem backing these terrorists.
Look at Lebanon, the christian resistance against muslim and palestinian attacks was painted as some extremist movement and pretty much got no support from anyone with the exception of israel who helped train and equip them, while every muslim country supported the palestinians.
Michael Moore calls these scum freedom fighters. Hold his fat to the fire and make him issue a condemnation for the guys he supported (with naked treason) when he declared “they WILL win Mr. Bush”.
One need not look far Christians are less than second class citizens in all muslim states. It’s a holy wars, a cleansing, a genocide in many countries and has been going on for many years, WAKE UP OBANGI!
That's exactly what he wants to do, and he's achieving it with dazzling speed.
Islam has always been at war with Christianity just as Satan has always been at war with the Lord.
If a country doesn’t have true “freedom of religion” to, without fear, assemble and worship (or not) in accordance with their personal conscience....then you don’t have a free society.
When we “liberated” Iraq we should NEVER have allowed any government to be set up that didn’t have this principle as a cornerstone.
We allowed the Iraqis to enshrine Islam in their constitution. Under their constitution, nothing is to be allowed in Iraq that “conflicts” with Islam.
and therein lies the problem with 'nation building'...
our blood and treasure should be simply to 'liberate'...then let em rebuild how they see fit...if they rebuild more evil, well then eventually we simply destroy it again and re-liberate...
Iraqi Christians continue being murdered by Iranian or Saudi-backed Islamic terrorists, while Obama was in Islamic Indonesia verbally blasting Israel, coupled with Hillary doing the same. Both of them are triggering severe judgments on America.
Stay LOW Allegra.
They are after Christians In Action.
