The “insurgents” in Iraq in their “nationalist” struggle have decided to target Christian sites, despite the fact that the Christians in question are “Iraqis.”
Now if this “Iraqi” “insurgency” really were “nationalist,” would they do this?
“Bombs strike several churches in Iraq, dozens killed,” from AP, with thanks to all who sent this in:
(1/30/06 – BAGHDAD, Iraq) – Car bombs exploded in quick succession Sunday near four Christian churches and the office of the Vatican envoy, killing three people and raising new concerns about sectarian tensions. At least 17 other people were killed in other violence around the country.
No group claimed responsibility for the bombings, which occurred within a half hour near two churches in Baghdad and two in Kirkuk, 180 miles to the north. The fifth bomb exploded about 50 yards from the Vatican mission in the capital.
Suspicion fell on Islamic extremists such as al-Qaida in Iraq led by Jordanian-born terror mastermind Abu Musab al-Zarqawi that have been responsible for massive car bombings and suicide attacks against Iraqi Shiite civilians.
