This is a Crime?

Reader comment on item: 'We Should Stay Out' of Iraq Conflict
in response to reader comment: The anatomy of the crime in Tikrit

Submitted by Elena (United States), Jul 22, 2014 at 01:58

I would not call this a crime. It is one set of young Muslim males going at another set of young Muslim males. Let's keep things in perspective. It's just another ordinary day in Islamoland. The "victims" did the same thing to another group of young Muslim males at an earlier time.

Such photographs are of value because maybe, just maybe, it might teach prospective jihadis what awaits them in the end. Their violence is empty and meaningless. Cries of "Allahu Akbar" are just sounds, not magic words which turn their savagery into noble acts of faith.

Sunnis blow up Shiite mosques, Shiites blow up Sunni mosques all when filled with people and they have the nerve to accuse Israel of "war crimes". Whether it is a market place busy with shoppers, a school, a mosque or a government building that goes BOOM, Muslims kill each other and then call themselves heroes and warriors for Allah.

Just as long as they keep their violence limited to their own countries, who cares what they do?
