The willingnes of Muslims to murder Muslims as well as non-muslims is amazing considering the faith these people claim to have. Islam will come to be known as the religion of mass murderers in the future. I assume that some part of the public in Iraq is horrified by all of these murders but we don't hear much about anyone protesting. Distressing and disgusting.

This never even made the BBC website - so far as I can tell.
Certainly not the US news.

Has anyone looked at the blue ink mark for those who vote as a way to mark those people who don't vote - literally. Isn't that a form of repression? What if we did that to Americans? Think of the pressure on, say an African-American, if he had no mark that he voted this year? Not voting is a way that people state that they don't believe in the choices they've been given. How are these vote markers perceived in Iraq?
