Life in Iraq has become impossible, and even more dangerous, and there is now no way to leave here. To the north, west, and east of Baghdad there is fighting, and with so many groups of Shiite militias in the south, it is not safe for us to go there because of the sectarianism that was never here before the invasion. Every day, the Iraqi army is raiding homes and arresting many innocent people. So many dead bodies are to be found at the Baghdad morgue in the days following the mass arrests in Sunni areas. Horror, fear, arbitrary arrests, indiscriminate bombing, killing, an uncertain future — this is the new democratic Iraq.

2. Abduallah Kaware, Khan Younis;

3. Mohammad Ashour, 13, Khan Younis;

4. Kaware Riyadh, 50, Khan Younis;

Y’all are always talking about how you don’t have to be Muslim to care about Syria or to care about Palestine.

but then Muslims don’t care when 833 Shia Muslims are killed in Pakistan within 18 months.
