Muslims Attack More Iraq Muslim Shrines

From the terrorists spokesmen, Al Jazeera:

Iraqi Shi’ites chant slogans during a protest against the bombing of Samarra’s Golden Mosque, in Baghdad’s Sadr City June 14, 2007.

Iraq mosques come under attack

Sunni mosques in and around Baghdad have come under attack in apparent reprisals after the minarets of the Askariya shrine in Samarra were blown up.

On Thursday, both the al-Mustafa mosque in Iskandiriyah and the al-Bashir mosque in Mahawil, both in Iraq’s southern Babil province, came under attack, police said.

A few hours after the Samarra bombing, three mosques in Iskandiriyah – the Grand Mosque, the Abdullah Jubburi mosque and the Hatteen mosque – as well as the Khudair al-Janabi mosque in Baghdad’s Bayaa neighbourhood, were bombed, police and residents said.

Police said an explosion inside the Hateen mosque injured a woman and child in an apartment nearby.

Tens of thousands of Iraqi and US soldiers were on the streets of Baghdad and other Iraqi cities enforcing curfews imposed after Wednesday’s bombing.

Witnesses said additional checkpoints had been set up along roads leading to Sadr City.

Street protests

Despite the curfews, thousands of residents marched peacefully through the streets of Sadr City, a stronghold of Muqtada al-Sadr, the Shia leader of the al-Mahdi Army.

“Out, out occupiers,” the Sadr City protesters chanted, in reference to US forces.

Demonstrations also took place in Kut, Diwaniyah, Najaf and Basra, all of them predominantly Shia cities in the south.

Al-Qaeda execution

An Iraqi al-Qaeda-led group meanwhile said it had killed 14 Iraqi army and police personnel and posted an internet video showing a masked man shooting the kneeling men in the head.

“After the deadline given by the Islamic State in Iraq expired the sharia court decided to implement God’s ruling against those apostates,” the group said on the video.

The footage showed the gunman shooting the blindfolded men with a pistol in an open field, as off-camera fighters chanted “Allah is great”.

The hostages’ hands were tied behind their backs.

The authenticity of the tape could not be verified but it was posted on a website used by Iraqi armed groups.

Let’s see… Muslims blowing up more Muslim shrines — and fellow Muslims.

Demonstrations against the US troops, the only thing keeping these animals Muslims from slaughtering each other wholesale.

More Muslim captives slaughtered, including one executed for the cameras.

Just another day in paradise.
