Terrorists Seek Christian Blood

Terrorist cowards in Iraq targeted at least five churches this morning, killing two. They also targeted police, killing five people, including one American. The unprecedented attack on the minority Christian community was immediately condemned by many Muslim religious leaders, including at least one who has been opposed to the American presence in Iraq.
"This is a cowardly act and targets all Iraqis," Abdul Hadi al-Daraji, spokesman for radical Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr, told Al-Jazeera television.

unfortunately, this just contributes to the fear of the small Christian minority in Iraq.
"What are the Muslims doing? Does this mean that they want us out?" Brother Louis, a deacon at Our Lady of Salvation, asked as he cried outside the damaged Assyrian Catholic church. "Those people who commit these awful criminal acts have nothing to do with God. They will go to hell."

And not only will they go there, we have an obligation to help send them.
