Here are more photos of the expression of Islamic piety in Iraqi Kurdistan Friday. After Friday prayers, Muslim mobs promptly misunderstood Islam: they left mosques and ransacked Christian-owned liquor stores and other businesses. I am sure the mainstream media reports will be along presently to tell us that this has nothing to do with Islam.
Of course — in case anyone doesn’t realize — to say that this mob of savages misunderstood Islam is sarcasm. The mob didn’t misunderstand Islam at all. Clearly they were acting upon what they heard in the khutba, the Friday sermon. They stormed out of the mosque and took vengeance against Christians they regarded as “spreading corruption in the land” (cf. Qur’an 5:33).
These photos were sent to me by the same Iraqi reader who has been sending us regular reports (earlier coverage, including more photos and video, here, here, and here). These photos come courtesy Ankawa.com here and here.
