Jihad Against the Professors. In America, it is more likely that the professors will themselves be jihadists.
Seriously, note that last paragraph: the reference to the “the anti-Shi’ite insurgency raging against US forces and their Iraqi allies.” The “anti-Shi’ite insurgency” is “raging against US forces.” And of course, this is accurate: the Shi’ites, because of their superior numbers, have always been the strongest backers of the US democracy project. So the Shi’ites are benefiting from US help on the one side, and Iranian help on the other. And the US is unwittingly aiding Iranian interests.
Is that really a wise course of action?
From AP, :
Gunmen killed the Shi’ite dean of Baghdad University’s school of administration and economics on Thursday, four days after the murder of a prominent Sunni academic.
Jassim al-Asadi had been driving with his family in the northern Baghdad neighborhood of Azamiyah when the unidentified shooters pulled alongside and opened fire, police Lt. Ahmed Ibrahim said. Al-Asadi’s wife and son were also killed in the attack, Ibrahim said.
The shooting follows the killing on Monday of geologist Essam al-Rawi, head of the University Professor’s Union and a senior member of the hard-line Sunni Association of Muslim Scholars, which is believed to have links to the anti-Shi’ite insurgency raging against US forces and their Iraqi allies.
