Iraqi counterterror chief falls to his prey

By Lara Jakes, Associated Press Writer Fri Dec 4

BAGHDAD – He compared al-Qaida in Iraq to wolves, urging that the terrorist group be crushed since he believed its members would never reject violence. But the wolves got to the Iraqi counterterrorism officer first.

Ahmed Subhi al-Fahal’s death in a suicide bombing in Tikrit could embolden al-Qaida loyalists to try to make a return to the area around Saddam Hussein’s hometown where he held sway. On Friday, within hours of his killing, dozens of Web sites affiliated with al-Qaida in Iraq were already celebrating the death of their longtime nemesis.

The attack also stood as a reminder that Iraqi security officials who work closely with American forces remain a prime target for insurgents even as overall violence in Iraq fades.

Thursday’s bombing, outside a goldsmith’s store, also killed two of al-Fahal’s bodyguards and two bystanders in Tikrit — which holds symbolic significance for the Sunni-led insurgents because of its connection with Saddam.

Al-Fahal, in his early 30s, was a lieutenant colonel in the Salahuddin provincial police force. But he was mostly known, by al-Qaida and the American military alike, as one of central Iraq’s top counterterror officials, bent on purging insurgents from his turf.

"It is better to kill al-Qaida’s members because it is no use to reform them," al-Fahal said in a recent interview with Al-Arabiya TV. He was paraphrasing a religious saying that there is no use in trying to reform wolves — instead, they must be killed…

Funny how the AP almost sound like they too are celebrating the murder of this brave man.

Perhaps they want Mr. Al-Fahal to be a lesson to any Iraqi or Afghani, who might be tempted to work the US against the terrorists.

    He sounds like he was a brave man, it’s a pity those animals got to him. He had the right idea, kill them all since you’ll never reform them, not in a million years.

    Kill them all, let Allah sort them out.

    Since 9/11, Islam has carried out more than 14,000 terror attacks involving fatalities. Virtually all of those 14,000+ attacks were Muslim-on-Muslim violence (wholly reminiscent of black-on-black crime). And Israel is called to account for genocide? Hell, they barely kill one a month.

    This week’s total is 30 attacks, 102 dead and 200+ critically injured. For November the totals are 139 attacks in 14 countries, against five religions resulting in 529 dead and nearly 1,100 critically injured. Extrapolating November as an average month – 98 months of Jihad since 9/11 and mostly Muslim-on-Muslim violence is a GT of 14,000+ attacks, 52,000 dead, 108,000 critically injured. (this does not count the Muslims we killed in battle – that’s not Muslim-on-Muslim violence … that’s house-cleaning)

    More people are killed by Islamists each year than in all 350 years of the Spanish Inquisition combined.

    Islamic terrorists murder more people every day than the Ku Klux Klan has in the last 50 years.

    More civilians were killed by Muslim extremists in two hours on September 11th than in the 36 years of sectarian conflict in Northern Ireland.

    Koran – “Show mercy to one another, but be ruthless to Muslims” “Strike off the heads of Muslims, as well as their fingertips” “Fight those Muslims who are near to you” “Muslim mischief makers should be murdered or crucified”

    So, really, al-Fahal pretty much knew his end, at his beginning. And did his job anyway. But these two factions, Shia and Sunni are not going to let up and the seed of Ishmael and Cain are never going to be other than ruthless and murderous.
