You wrote: "They're not blowing themselves up but many do because they listen to the clerics and not the koran, which forbids killing yourself."

You are saying, the clerics are not teaching from Quran !!! Are you sure?? Those clerics have spent life time studying Quran. Surely they know what is written in Quran. You think they will dare incur the wrath of Allah by misquoting Quran!!! I don't think so.

Then you write : "Many iraqis are illiterate with no schooling so that cant began to read the koran in good faith. Look up education level in iraq, very poor."

I am sure Iraqis will disagree with you on this point. Even if somebody is illiterate, doesn't he have enough sense to distinguish between right and wrong?
