Iraqi Christians get set for a grim Christmas IRBIL, Iraq — They saw their brethren murdered during Mass and then were bombed in their homes as they mourned. Al-Qaida vowed to hunt them down. Now the Christian community of Iraq, almost as old as the religion itself, is sensing a clear message: It is time to leave.Do you think this might lead to more anger against Muslims in other countries, including the US? AND here again is a prime example of a harm done by the US invasion under George Bush in 2003. It dismantled the interreligious peace rigidly enforced by Saddam Hussein .
Sorry for swinging back by over here, but I thought about you Catherine, when I was reading my local online (news?)paper today. Ya probably have to weed through the ocassional (o.k. shitload) of spin, omision(s) and do a couple moves of "the propaganda shuffle," but it appears to support what you have already stated.
...but I use to work for this newspaper company years ago.
And the "shit" that passes for news, could easily be placed into any website's flashing banner. (like Wal-mart ads perhaps?)
And just because the "already tainted stories" of AP may not be
ing enough, the "ole JC" (and Gannett newspapers in general) will further "break it down" into parts easily digested, by the "filthy right winged" news anchors, editors and publisher, that runs this "can of worms," called a newspaper outlet!!
***EXAMPLE AND THEIR QUOTE***
He declined to comment on possible causes but said the anti-Christian violence in Iraq is not necessarily linked to the assaults elsewhere. He noted that that there are "pressures on minority groups" in all three countries.
Now the Christian community of Iraq, almost as old as the religion itself,
***ME ME ME***
Since when have Christians, EVER, been a "minority group?" Oh God Greg you dumbass, because we have spread everyone's intestines in their neighbor's front yards worldwide, because "the little ole U.S. of A," have been made a victim, as a result of 911!! Therefore, the Christians, who are already familiar with the ICBM's, parting of the "Red Sea," (or the offensive line of the St. Louis Rams) have NOW, been officially "downsized," like the GM assembly plant, just down the road from here in Kokomo!! This, as a result, makes Christians, about as much of a "justified victim," of violence, as Dick Cheney's duck hunting adventure!!
...oh my sweet Jesus!!

WASHINGTON - The Obama administration said Tuesday it was "deeply concerned" by what appears to be a rising number of attacks on Christians in the Middle East and Africa.
The State Department said it was disturbed by a recent string of attacks against Christians in Iraq, Egypt and Nigeria and condemned all religiously motivated violence. Spokesman P.J. Crowley called on the governments in those countries to bring the perpetrators to justice.
Condemn all religiously motivated violence?
What about "General Electric/Boeing/Lockhead Martin" motivated violence?
(they're too big, to "downgrade" to a minority Greg, you dumbass!!)
To bring the perpetrators to justice?
Yeah, like Jerry's Falwell's heart attack to justice, when the words generated from this bigot, sent Mathew Shephard to an early grave.
