When dhimmis get out of line, they forfeit their contract of protection. One of the ways they do that is by proselytizing. Thanks to FreedomNowNews for forwarding this:
On Saturday, February 14, 2004 at approximately 4:30 pm local time in Baghdad, a van loaded with four Americans was attacked in an execution style attack. The attack occurred near the village of Mahmodia which is about one half hour south of Baghdad. The four passengers were: Pastor John Kelley, Pastor Kirk Di Vietro, Pastor David Davis and Pastor Garland Carey. Their van was sprayed with automatic weapon fire. The attack came from a small passenger car that was behind the van. The car passed the van on the right side and repeatedly sprayed the vehicle with bullets. Three of the men in the van received minor wounds, but Pastor John Kelly of the Curtis Corner Baptist, Wakefield Rhode Island, was killed in the attack. The driver of the van saved the lives of the other three men by evasive driving tactics and delivering the en to an Iraqi hospital. He was not injured, although the van was damaged considerably. The US Army got involved at the hospital and supervised their examinations and medical attention. A member of the US Consulate contacted me and delivered the three survivors safely into my hands at approximately 10:30 pm. They have each one talked with their families and they are resting today. We have been assured that they will be able to fly from Baghdad soon. I personally called Mrs. Kelley with this information. We are in contact with the US Military command and are awaiting instructions.
This was a tragic loss. Pastor Kelley has been a close associate of mine for many years. We have worked on a number of projects together in the work of the Lord. he was volunteer for this team, as were the other members. He requested permission to come and he has certainly been a blessing to all with whom he has had contact. My grief is without description. He was a great man. He served in the US Marines, pastored for more than 25 years and was a pillar of Christian manhood.
