“Clerics ‘must denounce violence’,” from the GulfNews, with thanks to Sr. Soph:
Doha: A top US military official has called for Iraqi moderates and religious leaders to speak out against violence committed by the insurgency against civilians.
“It is time for the moderates of Iraq to speak out and say that the violence committed against civilians is intolerable,” said Major General James Comstock, director of the United States Central Command in Qatar.
“Moderates within the Iraqi government and moderates within Islam, and other faiths, as Iraq is home not only to Islam but other faiths. Moderates should stand up and say enough is enough.”
Great idea, General. I wonder why they haven’t done so already. Do you have any idea why they haven’t?
