omar, why the war in Iraq

Reader comment on item: Louis Farrakhan Is Not a Muslim
in response to reader comment: Infidel indeed

If acts of terror are forbidden in Islam then why are the majority of acts of terror in the world committed by Muslims? Every act of terror mentioned in my article was committed by Muslims. Saddam Hussein was a Sunni Muslim. Thus when he ruled Iraq, the Sunnis had all the top jobs and positions in Iraq even though the Shiites out numbered the Sunnis.

When Saddam was removed from power, the Shiites and the Sunnis began their conflict to decide which Muslims would acquire the most authoritative, best paying and most productive employment opportunities in Iraq. Now Omar, perhaps you can tell me about the most horrendous terror acts committed by the west. By the way, don't bother telling me what's in the Qur'an, as I've several in my library and yes, I've studied them all, including the Hadiths.
