- Having discussed the matter in detail with other experts
on the Middle East, Christianity in Iraq and on Islam in Iraq, we have
all concluded this is not the work of any Muslim group. There has never
been any animosity between the Christian and Muslim communities in Iraq,
in fact, they have stood toe-to-toe against the American occupation and
they have resisted efforts by the Israeli office in Baghdad to become allied
- With these matters in mind, it appears as if this new
"attack on the Christian churches is just another attempt either by
the American CIA or its operatives, or the Mossad of Israel, to paint Islam
with terrorism and to split the Muslim and Christian communities in Iraq.
They tried to do the same thing in Palestine, but the Palestinians wouldn't
buy it. As you may remember, the Israelis shelled the holy churches of
the Church of the Nativity and the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. Both events
were condemned by Christian and Muslim alike. Even today in Iraq, all Iraqis
interviewed said they knew no Iraqi or Muslim would do such a thing. But,
in America, where we are fed the news as it is planned by Bush and by Zionist
influence, the story plays big to the evangelical group and to Christians
who believe the U.S. propaganda media.
- This is another sad chapter in the U.S. occupation of
Iraq. Since the early days of the war, the Iraqis complained about the
treatment of prisoners taken by the Americans. Unfortunately, no one would
listen to the Iraqis or those of us who reported these atrocities. You
all know the truth by now, how we were lied to by our government and by
the U.S. media; so much for truth and "embedding." So, once again,
we have to report to you, this is just another American cover-up to create
more chaos in Iraq, just as America did in Viet Nam to keep us in that
war, and to justify more attacks on Muslims groups in Iraq. This will also
help justify the continuing immoral and unjust shelling of Fallujah to
allegedly kill Zarqawi. The townspeople keep saying, "There is no
Zarqawi here, and there never was ;yet our U.S. military keeps lying in
order to justify the bombings of civilians in order to punish the Fallujahns
for having kept the American forces out of their city.
- At this point, there is no telling what the U.S. or the
Israeli Mossad will do in Iraq in order to foment civil war among the Iraqis
and to justify the continuation of an American occupation in Iraq. Some
of you may remember that JFK felt he had to go into Viet Nam in order to
protect the Christian Catholic leadership in the south. We have a replay
of this today in Iraq, with this "news."
- As for me, I've just about given up on believing anything
the Bush administration or the major American media tells us; they've lied
to us too often. We think this is just another self-serving lie by the
Bush or Mossad team.
