Muharib spill muslim blood in Baghdad masjid

If there be a genuine clash of civilizations in this world, then it rages only between the civilized folk of the world and the barbarians. Case in point:

A suicide bomber struck a Shiite mosque during Friday prayers in Baghdad, killing at least 10 people and wounding 20, police said, as violence persisted in the capital despite a massive security operation aimed at restoring order.

Police Lieutenant Thaer Mahmoud said the attacker blew himself up at the Buratha mosque in northern Baghdad.

Mahmoud said the bomber was wearing an explosive belt, but Jalal Eddin al-Sagheer, the preacher at the mosque and one of the country's leading politicians, however, said the explosives were inside a worshipper's shoes.

He said guards first arrested a suspected attacker after discovering explosives as they were searching shoes left outside the mosque. The bomber blew himself up when confronted by the guards as they began searching worshippers with shoes beside them inside the mosque, al-Sagheer said.
[...]
It was the second time the mosque has been hit in just over two months. The Buratha mosque also was attacked during Friday prayers on April 7, when four suicide bombers, including a woman, set off their explosives, killing at least 85 worshippers as they left the mosque after the main weekly religious service.

The U.S. military blamed that attack on Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the Al Qaeda in Iraq leader who was killed last week in a U.S. airstrike. The terror group issued a statement Tuesday vowing to avenge Zarqawi's death and threatening horrific attacks "in the coming days."


It is as if they desire to "kill all of mankind" (5:32-33).

civilized folk in the world and the barbarians

Who exactly are these "civilized" people, and who are the "barbarians"?

This wasn't happening under the evil Saddam, but only when the great western liberators (hegemonic war machine) go over there, foment factional conflicts, invent enemies and turn life for the ordinary Iraqi into a hell, as well as commiting atrocities, most of which the world probably never hears a word of. Ordinary Iraqis don't know what the hell is going on anymore, and the west doesn't even know when or how to withdraw.

It may be time to strongly reconsider just who the world's "barbarians" are, I think.

Saddam was a thug, he brutalized his people, and I know because I actually traveled to Iraq under Saddam, I have many family who traveled there, I know many Iraqis who lived there, I know many people who escaped there and many people who lost some one to Saddam while living there.

Saddam was a muharib on a vast scale. He was the enemy of Islam and of muslims. Allah will punish Saddam in the flames of hell for the misery he invoked upon the believers and the pilgrims.

And you don't see coalition forces [imperialists] as "muharib" as well?

How can Saddam be more of a muharib than western forces? How? Tell me now.

Saddam, btw, is still Iraq's rightful leader with a mandate to rule. Saddam has recently called the Iraq's new leadership a bunch of "criminals", and I tend to agree with this. When faux liberators invade Iraq, depose the rightful leadership, help install new western-friendly, puppet-style leadership, all done under the pretense of some sort of imminent threat, such as false assertion of WMD's that would soon be used, I begin to wonder who the real muharib is.

I think this western invasion and interference has caused a national mayhem that has taken radically more innocent Iraqi lives than Saddam ever could.

If we could give Iraq back to Saddam, I bet that it's people would suddenly begin to re-experience the familar security they have lived with for decades, and would feel that this current mayhem might soon begin to calm. I'm not saying that Saddam was a saint, but rather that if he were given back his right to rule his land, there would likely be a feeling among the people of returning security, that better days are in order, that a father of sorts has returned, and so on.
