One thought on “Several Bomb Attacks in Iraq, 11 killed and 24 injured.

  1. Iraq is a shia majority state , why not the shia officials in the army, police and govt. officials make sure that the miscreants are caught and given exemplary punishments . These crime
    happening daily there are clear case of terrorism for which Islamic Shariyah, taken from the versus of Qora’an is very explicit and have clear definition of terrorism and its punishment so why not give the criminals public lashings in open, cut their limbs from apposite sides and hang them like they did to Saddam who had no authority to what they did to him but did it right . Now no Saddam will emerge from there a tyrant killer who took the innocent life of innumerable and did not spared his own community people even his kith and kin .
    Rise up the majority of the holy places of Iraq and don’t let this legacy of their illegitimate
    heroes continue to play with the blood of innocents.
