hi dear dhimimi

you were asking for proof for killings in iraq . i think you dont watch television, though they dont show all the casualities still every day they show it ....i am quoting this british study published as well done by british person luckily not by a muslim otherwise you will sy muslims have fabricated it ....

The medical journal, The Lancet, published two peer-reviewed studies on the effect of the 2003 invasion of Iraq and subsequent occupation on Iraqi mortality, the first in 2004, the second (by many of the same authors) in 2006

The first survey[1] published on 29 October 2004, estimated 98,000 excess Iraqi deaths (with a range of 8,000 to 194,000, using a 95% confidence interval (CI)) from the 2003 invasion and subsequent occupation of Iraq to that time, or about 50% higher than the death rate prior to the invasion

The second survey[2][3][4] published on 11 October 2006, estimated 654,965 excess deaths related to the war, or 2.5% of the population, through the end of June 2006

some other sources 3 of them dont agree with this death toll and comparison is here

the way you have responded to iraqi killings shows that humanity is not the message of the day . all the religions preach humanity and peace but the people following it donot follow it . Instead of feeling sorry for them you are justifying by saying that can i provide some sources for my absurd claim.

What i believe people like us are responsible for deaths in different parts of world this is an agony that muslims are dying more than any other religion followers....all of us should condemn this when hitler killed millions jews it was painful and shameful ...the most disturbing thing is the death of children in different killlings. all children are innocent whether christian ,muslim hindu or jews....all are human beings ..we give protection to animals and try to be nice with them but human beings cannot be nice to each other as they differ on the basis of colour ,religion.

Submitting....
